Bush and The RNC: A Complete Laughingstock
Who was the mastermind behind 9/11?
Osama Bin Laden
Whose name didn't come up even once during the Republican convention?
Osama Bin Laden.
Considering all the Republicans could discuss this week (besides bashing Kerry and Edwards) was 9/11 and all the sad, sympathetic images they could wring from it, you'd think they'd mention the perpetrator.
But no, because they allowed their $200 billion war with Iraq to distract them from the search for the real perp.
And, make no mistake about it, with Madison Square Garden surrounded by the largest cadre of security, police and secret service ever assembled in history, a red-faced Bush had his speech disrupted, not once, but twice by infiltrating protesters.
Some national security, Bushie. You can't even keep yourself safe from those who loathe you.
In an historic move, Kerry and Edwards were so angered by the lies and omissions of the RNC, they held a joint press conference following the meandering Bush speech, before a crowd of more than 15,000 people assembled in the dark of night, outdoors in Springfield, Ohio.
Yes, thousands of Ohioans gathered around midnight and stayed for more than an hour to watch Kerry and Edwards take the gloves off.
"I have five words for America: This is your wake-up call."
"Let me tell you what I think makes someone unfit for duty," Kerry said.
"Misleading our nation into war in Iraq makes you unfit to lead this nation.
"Doing nothing while this nation loses millions of jobs makes you unfit to lead this nation.
"Letting 45 million Americans go without health care makes you unfit to lead this nation.
"Letting the Saudi royal family control our energy costs makes you unfit to lead this nation. "Handing out billions in government contracts without a bid to Halliburton while you're still on their payroll makes you unfit."
The gloves are off, all right.
Kerry and Edwards found the fire in their bellies last night, and the road for an imbecilic weakling like Bush and his sickly, criminal, old sidekick Cheney just got a whole lot craggier.
The GOP had their chance to define themselves this week.
Like they did for last four years, they failed in their mission.
Kerry and Edwards have thus far wasted courtesy and fair play on their despicable opponents.
But not anymore.
Bush and Cheney deserve nothing but contempt, and Kerry and Edwards gave them what they had coming to them.
The real campaign began in Springfield, Ohio last night.
No more years!
