Republican Flip Flop

"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," he said while speaking to Israel's parliament, the Knesset. He called it a "foolish delusion" to think the U.S. can negotiate with terrorists."

That's right. We do not negotiate with terrorist! Unless it's North Korea or the insurgence in Iraq. Dare I say? Is George Bush turning into a flip flopper? Luckily for the prez, he's not alone. John McCain has joined in on the action, criticizing Barrack Obama as being the Hamas candidate and ridiculing Obama's foreign policy. Slight problem, John. You recorded a video interview two years ago in which you said you were willing to negotiate with Hamas. Doh!

Kids. The lesson here is simple. Negotiate first, kick ass later, but do not try to question our intelligence.
