Stating the Obvious...

...and having some self-absorbed boomer throw a tantrum over it.

President Bush, speaking to the Knesset on Israel's sixtieth anniversary:
"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along," the President said to the country's legislative body, "We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."
The Obamessiah, believing that he had been personally attacked, flew into a snit:
"It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel's independence to launch a false political attack. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action...[yada-yada-yada]
Whoops, looks like Barack has a guilty conscience. White House spokesperson Dana Perino sets him straight:
"I understand that when you are running for office sometimes you think the world revolves around you. That is not always true and it is not true in this case."
Another Bush staffer suggested that the President was not referring to a specific individual, though the name of America's worst president, former peanut farmer Jimmah Carter did come up.
