Barack Obama rebuked Republican rival John McCain and President Bush for "dishonest, divisive" attacks in hinting that the Democratic presidential candidate would appease terrorists, staunchly defending his national security credentials for the general election campaign.
Obama responded Friday to Bush's speech Thursday to the Israeli Knesset. The president referred to the leader of Iran, who has called for the destruction of the U.S. ally, and then said some seem to believe that we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals—comments Obama and Democrats said were directed at them. McCain subsequently said Obama must explain why he wants to talk with rogue leaders.
How is this dishonest? Obama said he would talk to the leaders of countries that sponser terrorists. He said it in a debate.
The President did not mention Obama's name at all. Although, it could be said about many people on the Democratic side of the aisle. Nancy Pelosi met with the leader of Iran. He could have been talking about her. Or he could have been talking about Carter, etc...
Mike Huckabee was on Mike Gallagher's show this morning. I think he described it best when he gave this saying: "When you throw a rock across the fence, it's the hit dog that hollers".
