Fascist Bush Calls Obama A Nazi Sympathizer

George Bush is in Israel today to visit and speak on behalf of Israel's 60th anniversary. Instead of talking about peace and hope (yeah, right!) he dove into his usual bath of pig shit and made a partisan attack 5,500 miles from home. In his sneaky way, he compared Barack Obama to those that appeased the Nazis as they strove for power in the 1930s.

From ThinkProgress:

In his speech, Bush said, “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.”[...]

President Bush may want to take up his head-in-the-sand views with his own Defense Secretary. Just yesterday, Robert Gates said the U.S. needs to “sit down and talk with” Iran:

“We need to figure out a way to develop some leverage…and then sit down and talk with them,” Gates said. “If there is going to be a discussion, then they need something, too. We can’t go to a discussion and be completely the demander, with them not feeling that they need anything from us.”

Bush’s cross-continental partisan assault upends the traditional notion that U.S. politics should stop “at the water’s edge.” Reacting to Bush’s comments, Obama issued this statement: “It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 60th 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.”

Obama is not going to stand for that below-the-belt crap from George Bush or anyone else. While Bush continues to live in his land of delusion and fairy tales, the (almost) Democratic nominee is going to swipe away anything that Bush or his hoped-for successor John McCain say that uses fear and manipulation like we saw today. The American people are tired of these attacks. We want change and we want it in so many ways. Getting rid of the Republicans in the White House and as many as possible in the Congress is the first step on that road.
