Many have pointed out that Obama and the Democrat’s faux outrage over Bush’s “negotiate with terrorists” remarks represents a confession of sorts.
As Shakespeare put it, â€œMe thinks he doth protest too much.â€
Obama: “George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists . . .”
Obama: “I would meet directly with Iranian leaders.”
The State Dept. (few “neocons” there!): “Iran remain[s] the most active state sponsor of terrorism.”
Sometimes it’s not necessary to “call a spade a spade” if the spade whines in denial anytime one gets near his guilt zone. As John Bolton said about Bush’s speech,
â€œI think that the president hit the nail on the head yesterday in Jerusalem. And today, the nails started to complain.â€
Well said, Mr. Ambassador.
