President Obama on Republican accusations of appeasement: ‘Ask Osama bin Laden’

Earlier this week, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the rest of the GOP field accused President Obama of leading a foreign policy of “appeasement.” Although most Americans ignored the attacks, they were the first thing President Obama was asked about at his press conference earlier today. His response was priceless:

QUESTION: Republican candidates have taken aim at your approach to foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East and Israel, and accused you of “appeasement,” and I wanted to get your reaction to that.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top al Qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement—or whoever’s left out there, ask them about that.

I can’t wait for the debates next fall. They’re going to be so much fun.
