Obama is complaining about being attacked by Bush for advocating appeasement. However, the MSM is ignoring the political context.
Obama sent a bunch of lobbyists to Israel to coincide with Bush's visit. Their job was to advocate and justify Obama's "talk to anyone" stance with Israeli politicians. However, I think it was inappropriate for a Obama to do this.
In my opinion, it's unethical for a mere political candidate to attempt to discredit or undermine the policies of the sitting President of the United States, who is the elected representative of the American people.
In the midst of these efforts of Obama's lobbyists, Bush read a prepared speech to the Knesset. Bush did not even refer to Obama in his speech.
Bush said, "Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. 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."
It's a ridiculous stretch for Obama to claim that Bush was referring to him. Obama is not the only present or future appeaser that we need to worry about, he is just the Appeaser Du Jour.
