Politics stops at the water’s edge … except if you’re President Obama.
Here he is from this morning bashing Donald Trump at his final press conference in Laos, calling the GOP nominee unqualified to be president:
"I don't think the guy's qualified to be president of the United States" — President Obama on Donald Trump https://t.co/caCwhLDrz9

What a hypocrite. Remember when then Senator Obama threw a snit fit when President George W. Bush talked about the danger of appeasing terrorists during a speech in Israel in 2008? We do.
Flashback, via ABC News:
Watch video of Bush’s comments on terror HERE. In a statement, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., shot across the bow: “It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel’s independence to launch a false political attack. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy – to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. 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.”
Touched a nerve there, eh?
Biden slammed GWB as well, calling his comments “bulls*it” and “malarkey”:
Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.), piling on to Democratic complaints about President Bush’s speech in Israel today:
“This is bullshit, this is malarkey. This is outrageous, for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, to sit in the Knesset … and make this kind of ridiculous statement.”
Speaking before the Knesset, Bush said that “some people” believe the United States “should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.”
Fast forward to today where we have the same guy who lost his cookies over “some people” now telling the rest of the world that quite possibly the future leader of the United States isn’t up to the job.
