Behold! The glass slipper of appeasement

Yesterday morning, I noted the little rumble between George Bush and Barack Obama over the president’s remarks in Israel about the folly of appeasement. “He could be talking about Jimmy Carter, Cindy Sheehan, the White Flag Democrat leaders in the House and Senate, or hell, his own State Department,” I wrote, but concluded that “if the shoe fits,” Obama should wear it and stop whining.

Today, the White House says Bush was talking about That ’70s Appeaser, Jimmy Carter, not the Messiah.

Doesn’t matter who exactly Bush had in mind. The shoe still fits Obama’s delicate foot, but he refuses to slide into the glass slipper of appeasement and own it:

Barack Obama struck back hard at President Bush and John McCain Friday, accusing them of hypocrisy and of distorting his position on dialogue with nations hostile to the United States, telling a South Dakota crowd that “I’m running for president to change course, not to continue George Bush’s course.”

“I want to be perfectly clear with George Bush and John McCain, and with the people of South Dakota,” he said at a Watertown campaign stop. “If George Bush and John McCain want to have a debate about protecting the United States of America, that is a debate that I’m happy to have any time, any place and that is debate I will win because George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for.”

In his comments before the Israeli Knesset Thursday, Bush seemed to equate the Illinois senator’s foreign policy views with those of Nazi appeasers in the years before World War II, though he did not mention any names. Obama strongly criticized the president for the remarks Friday, calling them “the kind of appalling attack that’s divided our country and that alienates us from the world.”

On Friday, Obama also fired back at McCain for saying Thursday that the Democratic senator was not qualified to protect the nation. “[John McCain] talked about elevating the tone of debate in our country. He talked about reaching out in a bipartisan fashion to the other side. Then not an hour later he turned around and embraced George Bush’s attack on Democrats,” said Obama, who called the Arizona senator’s Iran policy “naïve and irresponsible.”

Obama calling someone else “naïve” and irresponsible?”

Snort.

More:

“He jumped on a call with a bunch of bloggers and said that I wasn’t fit to protect this nation that I love because I wanted to sit down and negotiate with tough diplomacy with countries like Iran. Accused me of not being fit…[or] being able to protect this nation,” he added.

And?

Debbie Schlussel has a new report on the latest dangerous company Obama keeps.

Michael Goldfarb responds to Obama using his grandfather as a human shield:

[Obama:] McCain “accused me of not being fit to protect this nation – a nation my grandfather served in World War II– a nation that’s given me everything that I have,” Obama said, then pivoted to attack Bush and McCain on a series of issues: Iraq; the survival of Osama bin Laden’s and the Al Qaeda’s leadership; Iran’s strength; and Hamas’s and Hezbollah’s ascendancy.

My great uncle killed a lot of Germans, and I have the war trophies to prove it. I’m not sure that makes me uniquely qualified to protect this country. It’s odd that Obama continually defends himself using the politics of association, while at the same time condemning those who would attack him based on his associations with people like Rev. Wright. Obama’s father was communist, but he didn’t get to choose his father, or his grandfather. And their politics have little bearing on his own. But he did choose to associate with people like Robert Malley who would attempt to appease Hamas. And he hung around with Bill Ayers, who clearly does not love this nation. Those associations would seem far more relevant than his grandfather’s service in the Second World War.

Did you order your t-shirt yet?

Allah’s got the vid and takedown of Obama’s unctuous, expedient rejoinder.
