It's horrible, yet I can't get enough!

President Bush's recent political speech in the Israeli Knesset compared advocates of diplomacy and talks with countries like Iran to European leaders like Neville Chamberlain who sought to appease Hitler by allowing Germany to take over parts of Czechoslovakia. This was widely taken as a swipe at Senator Obama, for his proposed policy of talking to foes of the USA (though to clarify, Obama rules out dealing with Hamas and Hezbollah, as they are terrorists advocating violence and the destruction of Israel). Following the Bush speech, here's a great video from MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews:

Chris Matthews later said he asked conservative LA talk show host Kevin James "what Neville Chamberlain do wrong" 24 times!! [More serious discussion on this train-wreck here.]
