It Happened on a Republican's Watch
I was watching a man on the street segment on the news recently and the woman being interviewed said she was voting for McCain because, "The Republicans have kept us safe."
Pssst, stupid, the towers came down during Bush's watch.
You call that safe?
Right after 9/11 when Bush and Giulliani and their ilk started making political hay out of the attack, Bush said he refused to retrofit American airports to the security standards of the Tel Aviv airport in Israel because he said "we couldn't afford the $10 billion it would cost to do it."
Yeah, the same $10 billion he wastes every MONTH in Iraq.
With McCain marching in lock step with Bush 90 percent of the time, what's to stop another attack of this magnitude?
Our borders still are not secure.
Our ports still are not secure.
Our airports still are not secure.
And 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden is still out there, likely planning the next attack.
There are madmen out there whose hatred for America has only been exacerbated by BushMcCain rhetoric. "Bring it on" is not an approach that works with angry people who hate us, not for our freedom but for our government's willful arrogance.
Sorry, but being a POW 40 years ago and emerging with the hottest temper in the Senate does not bode well for diplomacy.
Having a Vice President whose global stupidity and ignorance matches that of an average 5th grader is not encouraging, either.
On this anniversary of 9/11, please let the shock and pain of that day inspire you to do something today that will help Obama become our next president.
Donate $9.11 to his campaign. Get a bumper sticker or yard sign. Talk about how the attack happened on Bush's watch in the break room or at lunch. Talk about the $10 billion Bush refused to spend on airport security.
We have to get rid of these Republican idiots before 9/11 happens again. We must!
