The dispute over Middle East policy just went global...

The New York Times has this from the Obama campaign. The line from Obama I'm focusing on is this one:

George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the President’s extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.

Does anyone remember this exchange? The Obama campaign seriously has a low opinion of the American people, and their ability to follow an argument. He must think we've entirely forgotten about all of the things he said in the primary campaign over the last three months already (engage with terrorists, eliminate free trade, double the capital gains tax rate, eliminate the social security payroll tax cap, bring the top income tax rate to 39.6%).

Sen. Obama, you're not running for the state senate of Illinois (although I'm sure that's a recent memory), you're running for President of the United States. Not only are all of us here in America watching, but the folks around the world are paying attention too. "Our stalwart ally Israel" is getting a little scared of the prospect of a President Obama.
