Likely Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama yesterday pummeled President Bush, who dissed the candidate as a delusional fool before Israel's Knesset on Thursday.
And he smacked around presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain, who parroted Bush's broadside, for good measure.
"They're trying to fool you. They're trying to scare you and they're not telling the truth," a fired-up Obama declared while campaigning in South Dakota. "But it's not going to work."
"Both Bush and McCain represent the failed foreign policy and fear mongering of the past," Obama said. "I believe the American people are ready to reject this approach and to choose the future."
Obama declared the Republicans ambush "dishonest, divisive attacks."
And when called on this yesterday the White House did what the White House normally does... they lied, claiming that Bush wasn't targeting Obama. The credibility of the American government stays at zero as long as lying Republicans are in the White House.
Update: And Barack is bringing his guns to bear on McCain as well:
Barack Obama laid into John McCain on Friday for advancing a tough-guy foreign policy that he called ``naive and irresponsible,'' serving notice that he's ready to launch a full-throttle challenge to the Republican presidential contender on international relations in the general election campaign.
