Confabulations of Appeasers

Celebrating Israel’s 60th anniversary I watched President Bush with interest as he visited Israel. When he addressed the Israeli Knesset last Thursday he stated, “Some believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before... We have an obligation to call this what it is, the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.” My immediate reaction was I wished he believed his own rhetoric. He has been working on appeasement wanting to give chunks of Israel to Palestinian terrorists and overlooking Saudi Arabia’s state sponsorship of terrorism with American oil money throughout his presidency.
According to some reports the president’s remarks were intended as a rebuke to Jimmy Carter, the Don Quixote of ex-prez’s. Who knows the price in lives his recent visit with Hamas, which has been called a “thugocracy,” has cost? Hamas currently control Gaza, and President Bush deserves the credit or blame for that, not Carter. You do have to give Carter credit for causing trouble wherever in the world he has gone, trying to turn around his one term legacy of failed leadership. But he is a good follower with his nose to trails blazed by women such as Cynthia McKinney and Nancy Pelosi. McKinney’s excursions might be too clouded in the past for those with short-term memory affliction, but surely Pelosi’s delusion her office qualified her to act as an executor instead of a legislator will be remembered. It was only a month over a year ago she flew to Damascus to meet with Bashar Assad to give aid and comfort to America’s enemies. Right now that seems to be President Bush’s job.
The man, who has already given great indication how he would follow up helping the terrorists destroy Israel and America if he is elected, Barack Obama, thought the comments were aimed at him. Where I come from we have a saying about bit dogs yelping loudly. The man who has already said he would have unconditional meetings with terrorists like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s leader and former member of the hostage taking group that highlighted the castrated nature of the Carter presidency.
White House Press Secretary Dana Perino demonstrated she does not understand Obama is an elitist through and through when she said, ''I understand when you're running for office you sometimes think the world revolves around you. That is not always true. And it is not true in this case.'' He does not see the necessity or advisability of explaining that his ideas of change would forever alter America from being the land of the free and the home of the brave. Likewise John McCain was disingenuous when he said Obama must explain why he wants to talk with leaders like Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and added Obama's position was a serious error. ''It shows naivete and inexperience and lack of judgment to say that he wants to sit down across the table from an individual who leads a country that says Israel is a stinking corpse, that is dedicated to the extinction of the state of Israel. My question is, what does he want to talk about?'' McCain knows very well that what they have to talk about is the Islamification of America under the auspices of a form of Nationalist Socialism.
Barack Obama was characterized as “whining” over a false political attack in response to the President’s remarks. The truth is that at this point in his attempt at power he cannot afford to have too many people thinking about what he has been saying and the ramifications of him actually having the opportunity to do the things he has said. He said “George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists.” That kind of statement when uttered by someone other than a politician is generally known as a lie. Iran is ranked Number One on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism. Obama has stated more than once he would meet with the Iranians without preconditions. Other than getting Iran’s leaders in one place in order to blow them up I cannot think of a single sane patriotic reason why he would want to arrange a meeting without preconditions.
Nancy Pelosi criticized President Bush’s statement as “beneath the dignity of his office.” She should know something about that since amazingly she was able to bring the dignity of her office to a low seldom seen in 20th century in spite of the scalawags and knaves who have occupied it. Pelosi, you will remember, claimed Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert wanted her to pass on the message that Israel was ready for peace talks with Syria. I wondered at the time if she thought telling a lie like that would make the head of the State of Israel feel like he would have to bargain to keep from embarrassing her? If she did, Pelosi certainly had a more inflated opinion of her own position in the center of the universe than Obama was accused of having by Press Secretary Dana Perino. The Israeli government hesitated not in the least to reject Pelosi’s statement. At the time I remember being amazed she apparently did not have enough contact with reality to even feel embarrassment.
The President’s statement concerning the folly of negotiating with terrorists and radicals was absolutely correct. Like I said, it is too bad he has not practiced it in his presidency, and worse yet, it does not seem very likely any candidate of the two major parties is likely to adhere to the principle if they should become President. You see, we not only have to contend with Islamic hordes but the masses of the Reconquistas from South of the border. Reconquista is a Spanish and Portuguese word for "Reconquest." It was used 750 years in the move to regain territory from the Muslims invaders of the Iberian Peninsula and now is being used by illegal immigrants who want to turn portions of the United States into Mexican territory. The politicians running for office want to appease lawbreakers by making them citizens and making the Spanish language equal to English in the U.S.A.
The confabulations of the appeasers are indeed remarkable. But in this case the President of the United States not only hit a lot of yelping dogs when he fired his gun but the ricochet got him too. These elitist people all think they are so much smarter than the unwashed masses that common folk will not grasp the real truth of the situation if they make enough noise and do enough posturing. I pray to God they are wrong.
