Obama, Appeasement, “Diplomacy” and The Democratic Party: Some Perspective
Beacon Street Journal ^ | 5/19/08 | John Kinsellagh

How woefully ignorant is the Democratic front-runner on matters of national security, international relations and the intractable conflicts that have plagued the Middle East for decades? The recent foreign policy statements of the former community organizer have demonstrated such incorrigibly poor judgment and appalling naivete that three prominent Democrats have seen fit to distance themselves from Obama’s ludicrous position, which he somehow views as virtuous, of meeting unconditionally with the nations enemies. Senator Joe Biden tells us that Obama, “gave the wrong answer” in last July’s YouTube debate, but he assures us that Obama has, “learned a hell of a lot.”

Has he? Obama recently told David Brooks that the U.S. needs a foreign policy, “that looks at the root causes of problems and dangers.” Where have we heard that phrase before? It is one of the guiding principles of liberal social and domestic policy. Obama as a die-hard unrepentant liberal feels that all we need to achieve peace in the Middle East is to apply the same principles to the sphere of foreign relations. This is wishful thinking on a grand scale. But, strangely, it is not inconsistent with the Democratic Party’s inexorable lurch to the left, which

If Mr. Obama wins The White House, it will be like Jimmy Carter’s second term - only worse.

God help us.

Bush’s Fine Speech, and Obama’s Fine Whine

President Bush Blasts Appeasers: Hussein ObamaMessiaHamas Campaign Goes Ballistic!

Hysterical Whiner, Hussein ObamaMeshiaHamas cries/moans and screams that Bush falsely accuses him of appeasement and whines, “I’m not an appeaser!”

Obama: "I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems, ....I will not weaponize space... I will slow development of future combat systems... I will institute a 'Defense Priorities Board' to ensure the quadrennial defense review is not used ..."

Then, there will be peace in our time without the evil republicans causing war!

My change is good for Muslims, Islamofascists, Black Racists, and Chrislims. $crew the Christians and real Jews!

Obama also told David Brooks
“There are rarely purely ideological movements out there.”

I must question the ‘wisdom’ of that statement.
I do believe pure ideology is the driving motivation.

Wisdom is the ability to know the difference between good and evil.

Awesome video:

The same kind of terrorists who support Obama did this:
Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
Never forget.

Appeasement names our enemies Friend
In our country a growing trend

As we sleep its’ forces gather
Confused minds babble and form a lather

Our grave a little deeper is found
And we are not heaven bound

Appeasement sings its terminal tune
All conscious see the future as a pock-marked Moon
