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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
