Steyn on Saturday: It's All About Obama

Mark Steyn dissects the hypersensitive reaction of Barack Obama and his supporters to President Bush's warning about appeasement in his speech in Israel this past week.

The funny thing is that if Obama and the others hadn't mentioned the speech and claimed the President was criticizing Obama, the President's words probably wouldn't have been particularly noticed. But because of Obama's overreaction, everyone who's paying attention to politics now knows that Obama fears being perceived as an appeaser when it comes to dealing with those who would harm our nation and our allies.

The reaction also reflected a certain amount of arrogance on the part of Senator Obama, insisting that the President was definitely criticizing him when Obama was never mentioned by name.

What more appropriate place could there be than Israel, after all, to discuss history and the danger that can be found by appeasing dictators?

The thing that drives me nuts is that the administration gets all defensive and has to issue denials about the intent of the speech. I am so sick of this whimpy president. How about a remark along the lines of "if the shoe fits..." or "methinks the lady doth protest too much." Reagan would have had some such remark like that for sure.

This president is such a doormat and I am so sick of him!
