Obama Criticizes McCain, Bush On Appeasement Talk

Barack Obama is criticizing Republican rival John McCain and President Bush for "dishonest and divisive" attacks in hinting that the Democratic presidential candidate would appease terrorists.

Obama strongly responded Friday to the comments Bush made in Israel on Thursday and McCain's subsequent words. Obama told a town hall meeting, "That's the kind of hypocrisy that we've been seeing in our foreign policy, the kind of fear-peddling, fear mongering that has prevented us from actually making us safer."

Obama said McCain had a "naive and irresponsible belief that tough talk from Washington will somehow cause Iran to give up it's nuclear program and support for terrorism."

    Barak Obama severely lacerated his own jugular vein when he stated in the Democratic debates that he would personally sit down without any prequalifications to talk to terrorists. This is nothing more than acquiescing to a bullys demands and giving him the upper hand. Even Hillary jumped on these statements at the time. Now it is just posturing trying to get out of a jam he put himself in.
