At Israel’s 60th anniversary celebration in Jerusalem, Bush said, “Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” Mr Bush told the Knesset in Israel. “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided’.”
Although Dubbya did not say Obama’s name, we all knew who he was talking about.
No worries though, Joseph Biden the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held it down, telling reporters, “This is bulls**t. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset … and make this kind of ridiculous statement.” He went on to say “He’s the guy who’s weakened us. He’s the guy that’s increased the number of terrorists in the world. His policies have produced this vulnerability the United States has.”
You know it’s bad when you got white folks cursing on record.
Bush listen up: For someone who doesn’t have the mental capacity to work the fry line at Chic Fillet, it boggles me as to why you have the audacity to be talking about “grown folks” stuff like foreign policy. Here’s a coloring book, now go sit at the kiddie table and keep Barack’s name out of your mouth.
Republicans are so desperate to hold on to power that they will say anything and make up anything in order to invoke fear in Americans. It’s really sad. But like Dukakis said, Barack is going to have to prepare himself because this type of GOP political lynching is only the beginning.
Watch, next week Fox News’ Hannity & Colmes will label Barack’s youngest daughter a racial separatist because they have a tape of her playing double dutch with other black girls at school? I can hear it now: “Where are her white friends? This behavior resembles that of Italian fascists! Is that the type of family you want in the White House?”
Rumor is Barack is going to address Bush’s statements. When he is done with Bush, Bush’s face is going to look as beat as Hillary’s was on Super Tuesday when she realized that maybe she shouldn’t have spent all of her money so soon
UPDATE: CNN.com reports that Barack blasted Bush this afternoon.
— Sen. Barack Obama slammed President Bush on Friday for launching “exactly the kind of appalling attack that’s divided our country and that alienates us from the world.”
He also took a shot at Sen. John McCain for “embracing” the president’s “attacks on Democrats,” and “suggesting that I wasn’t fit to protect this nation that I love.”
“So much for civility,” Obama said at a town hall meeting in Watertown, noting that McCain had talked about the need for civility in politics earlier Thursday……..”After almost eight years, I did not think I could be surprised about anything that George Bush says, but I was wrong,” Obama said.
“The president did something that presidents don’t do. That is launch a political attack targeted toward the domestic market in front of a foreign delegation,” he said.
And Scene…I bet Bush is in Cheney’s office having a tantrum wondering why Cheney made him make those comments in the first place.
