The senator doth protest too much, methinks

President Bush recently speaking on the 60th anniversary of Israeli statehood had this to say...

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along," the President said to the country's legislative body, "We have heard this foolish delusion before. 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."

It seems like a fairly bland statement defending his foreign policy for the past 8 years. But that would only be because i am not a politician. Politician Barak Obama immediately saw for what it was, an attack against him. And all other democratic politicians have jumped on the bandwagon accusing president bush of playing partisan politics and with politician Joe Biden calling it bullshit, and politician nancy pelosy saying it is beneath the dignity of the office of the president. I must assume it has not escaped the notice of these politicians that Bush never mentioned Obama, so they must be intentionally ignoring that detail. Before anything else, Obama saw that quote and saw something of himself in that 1939 senator, or he wouldn't have jumped up to defend himself. Secondly it has been noted by news organization that Bush has expressed very similiar convictions throughout his (we don't negotiate with terrorist) presidency. So once again they must be ignoring that detail to jump to the conclusion that this isn't just another one of his speech but a calculated attack against a single individual. And finally i'm sure that they are all aware the a certain ex-president has recently gone and met with Hamas (a move denounced even by Obama) in an effort to negotiate some sort of truce. But obviously the president couldn't have been talking about the person who had just met with the Jews current mortal enemies when he referenced someone who had previously declared his desire to meet with the jews mortal enemies. These Democratic politicians must all be much smarter than me to see through all of Bush's possible meanings to realize that whole thing was meant only as an attack on politician Obama. No politician as far as i can tell has anything negative to say about the quote itself, only that it was a cheap shot directed at their peer Obama. No qualms with the substance of the speech, which politician obama likes to pretend is important, only the unwarranted use of this speech to attack him.

In case anyone was wondering why i am emphasising the use of word politician it is because i would like to remind the handful of people who read this blog that Obama, despite his protestations is a politician. He likes to pretend that he wants to leave behind all of lowly squabbles of day to day politics and discuss the really important issues, but he has repeatedly shown that he will stoop to the opportunity to bloody a rival through political maneuvering. He simply doesn't appreciate it when others do it to him. I don't have a problem with political attacks about trivial speeches, just don't pretend that you are better than everyone else, complain about people harping on your trivial speeches, and then jump on someone else's back for the same thing.

So now some jerk at some other blog is copying me. Plus he is misquoting shakespeare. In the quote the "lady doth protest too much, methinks" protest doesn't mean aruge, it means talking too much, implying she is not telling the quick simple truth, but lying and spinning a tale.

Yes i also misquoted in the exact same manner, but i did it knowingly unlike this other jerk whose ripping me off.

Also that guy in that thing you linked to arai sounds exactly like lieberman, or at least what i imagine lieberman would sound like.
