The Horror of Truth

I read an interesting article about our President being decried over the discussion of appeasement. Our President, George W. Bush, dared to tell an Israeli audience that terrorists are bad. For that, he was decried as an attacker of Obama...God forbid...

Why? Our President dared to call out those that would appease the terrorists, and laid the cards on the table:
“We have an obligation,” he continued, “to call this what it is: the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
GW dared to compare the appeasers of terrorists to the appeasers of,GASP, Nazis! How dare he!?
“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,”

I'd like to ask the same of those that compare our President to Hitler. Granted, their comparisons are based solely on emotional leaps to conclusions, but I digress. Why is Bush being bashed for comparing terrorist appeasers to Nazi appeasers?

You can read the entire article here.

Some of the professional victims, and those that enable them, have claimed that our President's words are a direct attack against Obama. What a hoot! I can see it now...a lame duck President goes to Israel to attack a lame candidate...who would have thought?

It's all a moot point, since he's right. Terrorists are bad, those that would appease them are bad, and stating that publicly has, somehow, become bad...I don't get it.
