The Obama Campaign Goes Completely Insane

Faux anger isn't working -- Obama’s faux anger in reaction to Bush’s speech is ludicrous. For one thing, the President did not even mention Senator Obama in his speech. What the President was rebutting was a (fairly prevalent) cast of mind, one which is shared by Obama but by many others–including Jimmy Carter, who just returned from the region, as well as a people serving in Bush’s own State Department. -- Peter Wehner

Here's some background info if you missed the story: Obama says Bush falsely accused him of appeasement

Read what the guys at Powerline have to say about the whole matter:

I'm increasingly struck by the sheer incoherence of what Obama says. His statement accuses President Bush of an "extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear." What on earth is this supposed to mean? Obama thinks we should be more willing to negotiate with terrorist states; Bush says we shouldn't. If Bush is "politicizing foreign policy," why isn't Obama? In Obama's eyes, it seems that anyone who disagrees with him about foreign policy has to keep his mouth shut, otherwise he's "politicizing foreign policy." But that doesn't apply to Obama; he spends several hours a day attacking President Bush's and John McCain's foreign policy views in speeches where he's trying to get people to vote for him. If that isn't "politicizing foreign policy," what is? -- John Hinderaker

None Dare Call It 'Appeasement' -- David Limbaugh
