Mourning and grieving and standing on their bones….
The Bush administration damn well should be on the defense over their 9/11 ads:
President Bush’s re-election campaign on Thursday defended commercials using images from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, including wreckage of the World Trade Center, as appropriate for an election about public policy and the war on terror.
Some families of the victims of the attacks are angry with Bush for airing the spots, which they called in poor taste and for the president’s political gain.
“With all due respect, I just completely disagree, and I believe the vast majority of the American people will as well,” Karen Hughes, a Bush campaign adviser, told “The Early Show” on CBS. “September 11th was not just a distant tragedy. It’s a defining event for the future of our country. … Obviously, all of us mourn and grieve for the victims of that terrible day, but September 11 fundamentally changed our public policy in many important ways, and I think it’s vital that the next president recognize that.”
The American should see those ads and remember: 9/11 happened on Bush’s watch. The Bush people seem to be proud of the fact that he was President at the time.
Great quote from Wonkette:
Apparently, the new Bush ads — which use images of Ground Zero — have upset some of the relatives of the victims of 9/11 tragedy, or, as Karen Hughes calls them, “Democrats.”
