Obama: Ask Osama If I’m An Appeaser
Source: Talking Points Memo

At Wednesday’s Republican Jewish Coalition forum, the GOP candidates practically lined up to bash President Obama’s foreign policy, insinuating with various levels of subtlety that it amounted to appeasement.

A reporter asked President Obama for his reaction to that at this morning’s press conference, and Obama had some fighting words:

“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.”

Democrats don’t look like they’re going to be shy about touting Obama’s actually rather muscular foreign policy during the general election. The Republican approach of trying to make Obama look like a second Jimmy Carter rather hit the ropes after Obama’s double-whammy of taking out both bin Laden and Muommar Qaddafi.

2. Haha, I'd rather ask Boehner.
He's seen POTUS in 'appease mode' more than once over the past couple of years.

4. That's a non-sequitur
I think your thread crapping would be more effective if you avoided non-sequiturs.

Here's a handy definition:

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/non%20sequitu...

non-sequitur

1 : an inference that does not follow from the premises; specifically : a fallacy resulting from a simple conversion of a universal affirmative proposition or from the transposition of a condition and its consequent
2: a statement (as a response) that does not follow logically from or is not clearly related to anything previously said
See non sequitur defined for English-language learners »

Examples of NON SEQUITUR

We were talking about the new restaurant when she threw in some non sequitur about her dog.

Must!

6. Let's ask the Somali pirates who held a US ship's captain
if Obama is soft on terror.

Whoops, they're all dead too.

8. Is capturing or killing criminals is foreign policy? I don't think Obama is an appeaser in
foreign policy, but I am not making that connection.

11. It's about time
The Democrats and Obama have been much too quiet on the successes of the Obama Administration. It's about time they start reminding people what's been accomplished.

They also need to take some time to remind people that the Government can and does play a positive role in their lives. All we seem to hear is the GOP yammering on about how bad government is.
