David Plouffe, campaign manager for B.Hussein Obama wrote the following in an email sent to the TT’s email box:
Last week, President Bush used a speech before the Israeli parliament to launch an unprecedented partisan attack. Senator McCain echoed his divisive misrepresentation of Barack’s foreign policy vision, engaging in the same fear-mongering and distortion.
In the video that was included in the email, B.Hussein Obama said the following:
“George Bush did things that presidents don’t do, and that is launch a political attack, targeted towards the domestic market in front of a foreign delegation. […] he accused me and other Democrats of wanting to negotiate with terrorists, and said that we were appeasers, no different from people who appeased Adolf Hitler. That is what George Bush said.”
Now, looking back on GWBush’s speech to the Israeli Knesset, the only reference B.Hussein Obama could be refering to, was this:
“There are good and decent people who cannot fathom the darkness in these men and try to explain away their words. It’s natural, but it is deadly wrong. As witnesses to evil in the past, we carry a solemn responsibility to take these words seriously. Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century.
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. 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.” We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
