Obama the appeaser

I just watched nearly ten minutes of CTV Newsnet stumping for Obama with a story titled "Obama responds to Bush" covering a speech from the primary campaign trail in South Dakota.

Bush's remarks about Nazi appeasers must have struck pretty close to home. Otherwise why would Obama be taking it so personally:
If Bush gave a speech about drug dealers, would you release a statement saying, "how DARE you insult me!"? Of course not.... So if you really aren't an appeaser, you shouldn't have willingly identified yourself with that group.

Excellent point. And, moreover...

Also, "Can someone explain ...
... how Obama sat in Wright's church for 20 years and managed never to hear anything, but hears 20 seconds of a Bush speech that doesn't mention him and perceives a shameful personal attack?"
Update: Mark Steyn in the OC Register.

Isn't that just rich - Bush of all people saying this.

Why do you think Bush is a rich boy from a rich family - his grandfather, Prescott Bush, was Hitlers banker - you got it - Hitler's banker.

References to Chamberlain - Chamberlain was a Conservative.

Enough said.

"Enough said."

More than enough I'd say - especially since everything Anon said is utterly irrelevant.

I am surprised and disappointed to see such filth come from a fellow Canadian. I'd expect that junk commentary from those Southern Simple-Minded Republicans. Not from you. Perhaps you might consider elevating your reading sources and breadth of knowledge.

"surprised and disappointed", "filth"

Oh, my! Obamamania strikes the Great White North!

Yes, yes, Jenny, it must come as quite a shock to discover that not all your fellow Canadians think just like you and automatically support a socialist candidate, no matter how squirrely and out-to-lunch he may be.

The terrorist monkey can not be negotiated with. The only reason to maybe talk to Ahmadamadmonkey in say maybe Switzerland is to provoke him by debating his ideology and criticizing his hatred. Force him to say lots of stupid and insane things which would be widely publicized thus educating more people to his ideology's insanity. This, I am quite sure, Obama would never do.

Ouch, Obama and the poor little Dems were hit a little too close to home by what GW said. It's one of the best things Bush has ever said. Bravo! And he didn't even have to mention the Dhimmicrats or any body's name.

So sure, then he folded in Saudi Arabia, but what he said in Israel almost makes that OK.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
appease the appeasers

don't embarrass them
by calling them appeasers

absurd thought -
God of the Universe said
have a sit down with Hitler

he should have been sweet-talked
he had goodness within

Appeasement Talk Bothers Appeasers
