had he NOT associated with these people...goodness.. you act like its the reps. doing something wrong by bringing up the associations.. dont associate in the first place.. eh?
EVERY politician in Chicago, Republican AND Democrat has worked with Ayers! That's why NONE of them are saying a word about this. Even the local REPUBLICANS think this is a non-issue and have stated so all over the place. It's like saying you are pro-gun just because you worked with Charleton Heston on a charity fundraiser once, hahahahaha.
George Bush is the ranking War Criminal these days in the free world. Lots of people associating with him... McCain was not only associating the the Keating 5 Savings and Loan crooks, HE WAS ONE OF THE KEATING 5. Yet, with the economy collapsing in the same damn way as he and his people caused, you aren't on his case at all. I'm not on his case because he was cleared of wrongdoing and I don't hold a man accountable for the actions of the people he's met in his long life. Especially politicians who have to meet and great EVERYBODY and have to, as part of their job, often negotiate and compromise with real scum bags.
George Bush and our military has kept YOU safe for 8 years, lest we forget.
Really?! He's got really good PR.
Cause the way I see it, he's the President who got caught with his PANTS DOWN on 9-11. In every other country, they kick the bum out of office who is found to be THAT incompetent and asleep at the wheel when disaster strikes. But what do we do?! We rally around the moron in chief who had advanced warning of this and was too busy taking naps and vacations while working bankers hours in the White House to prioritize OUR safety over his comfort and agenda.
So, are you going to give credit to Clinton and all the other Presidents who WEREN'T attacked on our HOME SOIL because we weren't enforcing visa and passport restrictions like Bushie boy? Meanwhile, while Bush was STILL in office, London and Madrid were bombed by Al Quaeda and Osama bin Laden is STILL FUCKING FREE AS A BIRD. Why don't you hold him responsible for THAT? I do.
You can pretend George Bush has "kept us safe". How convenient for him that we only get attacked on our home soil once every 50 years or so. He doesn't take blame for being caught with his pants down, AND gets credit for nothing happening in between. Lucky George.
I think, however, I'm a little more worried about the 10,000 NEW terrorists that our bombing of civilians in Iraq has created. Because, we're all going to be paying the price for them for DECADES, just like we paid the price for US funding and CIA training Osama bin Laden twenty years ago. Imagine what 10,000 bin Ladens are going to be like. And you can't blame that on Clinton. Those new terrorists are all Bush's legacy.
When the dems come in, cut our defense budget and we are attacked because of our perceived weak leadership
Oh, so now you are saying they attacked us on 9-11 because they perceived Bush's leadership as weak? I'm confused. How can you have it both ways? Either Bush is strong on defense and that scares terrorists (rofl) or Bush is so weak he encourages them to attack us brazenly. You contradict YOURSELF in the self-same post, amigo.
And for the record, Osama attacked us because of Bush family meddling in the Middle East since the 1950's. From the Shah of Iran, to the creation of Saddam, to Bush's palling around with the Saudi Royal Family - which has put US bases right in the middle of their holy land. Now, Osama's a nutter, plain and simple, but to ignore the fact that WE are responsible for them hating us because of REPUBLICAN meddling (all tied to the Bush family for over 50 years) is just plain ignorant of US and world history in a very extreme way.
PS Osama used the techniques WE (as in the CIA under Bush Sr. btw) taught him to attack us on 9-11 and hide from us in Pakistan/Afghanistan. Bush Sr., Dick Cheney, and Don Rumsfeld were there for ALL of this. Just read their bios and weep.
