At a press conference today, Barack Obama was accused of being an appeaser with regards to the middle east. His response:
“Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top al Qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement. Or whoever’s left out there about that.”
Obama has done a great job with regards to fighting terrorism–far better than George Bush. I wish he had a better record of avoiding appeasement of our domestic terrorists in the Republican Party, such as being unwilling to take on the Republicans over supporting the FDA’s recommendation on Plan B this week. There are signs that he will not be forced into appeasing the right wing terrorists over the budget as much in the future as he did over the debt ceiling increase.
