Over The Border

President Obama got into a lot of trouble with Republicans, including Karl Rove, last week when he said:

There should be an end to the occupation that began in 1967. The agreement must establish a Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people.

What a terrible way to throw Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu under the bus. The president must truly be a secret Muslim to promote such a radical idea.

Yeah, except that quote wasn’t from Mr. Obama. It was President Bush in 2008.

Just another example of GOP knee-jerk anti-Obama reactions to something they supported. It joins cap-and-trade, individual mandates, and going into Pakistan to get Osama bin Laden in the pile.

HT to Steve Benen.
