...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Don't plan on seeing any coming from the Rove Campaign headquarters. Here's a little taste of the depths they are willing to sink to(from Kos):


"I can't believe he said that. They are playing politics
with a national tragedy."

- Bush-Cheney spokesman Kevin Madden refuting
charges that the Administration is using 9/11 for
political gain, Newsday, 2/20/04


"President Bush's re-election team unveiled his
first campaign advertisements on Wednesday and
they in part use the events of Sept. 11, 2001...Two
ads refer to the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001...One ad,
entitled 'Tested,' shows, among other images, a
damaged building from the World Trade Center ruins."

- Reuters, 3/3/04

Look for the Rove Reelection Machine to exploit 9/11 as much as possible. It is the only event this administration exists for. Nothing has happened before or since that equals the great moment that it was when they got to be the ones to declare revenge.

Bush has not given a moment's notice to the 9/11 Commission, much less been in any way helpful in handing over crucial documents or assisting in their mandate. He has not honored his promise to New Yorkers to help invest in and rebuild their city, and he has prosecuted a war on a country that has nothing to do with bring to justice those who participated in or aided and abetted 9/11 (including Saudi Arabia). So invoking 9/11 is the lowest of shameful tactics, but that won't stop him from using it.

I hope that Kerry's commercials will take the high road, and come out immediately to define our candidate as the one who can win. And the other groups like Soros and MoveOn.Org will make the hard hits and call a spade a spade: Bush is a liar and he's done nothing, not ONE thing, good for this country in 3 1/2 years.
