Republicans For Terror

Bush campaign officials respond to the recent Osama tape

"We want people to think 'terrorism' for the last four days," said a Bush-Cheney campaign official. "And anything that raises the issue in people's minds is good for us."

A senior GOP strategist added, "anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush."

He called it "a little gift," saying it helps the President but doesn't guarantee his reelection.

New York Daily News

A "little gift." The man who murdered over 3,000 people on September 11 is still at large and sending threatening messages to the American people. And that's celebrated as good news by the Bush campaign. They're excited about the fact that you're terrorized. This is good for them. They came right out and said it. Be afraid, it helps us.

This is beyond disgusting.

David Brooks is freaking out over the video, consumed by the emotions he felt 3 years ago and looking for a leader that shares his irrationality.

One of the crucial issues of this election is, Which candidate fundamentally gets the evil represented by this man? Which of these two guys understands it deep in his gut - not just in his brain or in his policy statements, but who feels it so deep in his soul that it consumes him?


We are revealed by what we hate. When it comes to Osama bin Laden, Kerry hasn't revealed whatever it is that lies inside.

New York Times

Well allow me to reveal myself, David. I hate you.

I hate that you think it's better to have a leader who is "consumed" by hate than one who understands world issues rationally and acts after considering the facts. I hate that you accuse Senator Kerry of politicizing September 11th, when George Bush invented politicizing September 11th.

All that the Osama tape shows is that the man responsible for September 11th is still at large and still threatening our lives. Who is responsible for allowing him to remain at large? John Kerry? Democrats?

No. George Bush is responsible. He squandered unprecedented world support for the hunting down of this killer in a matter of weeks, embarking on a costly and deadly adventure which diverted nearly all resources from the hunt for this man. If bin Laden strikes again, blame George Bush.

Brooks has squandered his position as an honest spokesman for the conservative movement and has become a sad party line hack. It's truly disgusting.
