THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — President Obama sternly cut down his GOP presidential opponents by responding to their charges of appeasement with this: “Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22-out-of-30 top al Qaeda leaders who’ve been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement. Or whoever is left out there, ask them about that.”

Obama’s anger followed Wednesday’s (Dec. 7, 2011) speeches by GOP contenders at the Republican Jewish Coalition event:

From The Huffington Post: “In speech after speech, five of the six invited GOP candidates invoked the specter of “appeasement,”

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum accused the Obama administration of the kind of “appeasement” of Iran that allowed Hitler to invade neighboring countries with impunity.

Michele Bachmann said, in reference to Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that “again a madman is speaking, and it seems the world is again not listening.”

Mitt Romney said, “Internationally, President Obama has adopted an appeasement strategy. Appeasement betrays a lack of faith in America, in American strength and in America’s future.”

And Newt Gingrich, currently leading in the polls, used his time to rip into the Obama State Department, accusing it of “appeasement.””

Only Jon Huntsman refrained from accusing Obama of appeasement.
