The actual transcript.
These words were said by the President today:
"Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all 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."
And these words were written by me in the first Bi-Partisan post:
"In the past seven years, the only countermanding theory the Democrats proposed is the "Neville Chamberlain option,"As a Jew, I realized Hitler gave peace from 1936 to 1940 with England. But there was no Peace if you were a Jew in Germany, Poland or Czechoslovakia. As evidenced by President Carter's trip to Hamas, Democrats would support terrorists and terrorist states if they hated President Bush. "
The Bi-partisan posts were inspired by Thom Hartmann's rants and the action of the Liberals at the LA Times Book festival. For every Liberal and Democrat to be angry about the words defeats the purpose: What is the Countermanding theory to "Democracy beats terrorism?"

I am inclined to agree with both Mal and Jason.ReplyDelete
I have found that in surveying the political dynasties that exist on both sides of the aisle including the Bushes, Kennedys, Prescotts, Tafts, Roosevelts, Bonapartes, Harrisons, and Adamses that intellectual ability diminishes with each succeeding generation.
What used to be accepted as fact, that WWII actually saved the free world; that there was no question at all that the genocide of the Jews had to be stopped seems to be dissipating in the current state of the society of moral relativity. It seems surreal to me that apologetics for Hitler and denials of the Holocaust are springing up all over and have any kind of credibility. I guess they had to wait until the last of the eyewitnesses died out before they started this garbage. Then from this stage, it's a hop, skip and a jump to the kind of appeasement we're seeing today. After all, what is the real threat and what is there worth fighting for?ReplyDelete
Aurora, your parroting of Bush's bombast is rather dull. The world is not a black and white place and your simplicity does nothing to make anything better.ReplyDelete
