9/11: Deadly Republican Incompetence

by tristero

Within hours of the towers falling, I was on the phone with a friend in Finland who was weeping, "How could this happen?" I replied,"This is all the fault of the Bush administration. They weren't paying attention." For years, even confirmed liberals were saying I was hysterical, that no one could have predicted, blah, blah, blah.

No. It was incompetence and modern conservative ideology.
Perhaps most damning are the documents showing that the CIA had bin Laden in its cross hairs a full year before 9/11 — but didn’t get the funding from the Bush administration White House to take him out or even continue monitoring him. The CIA materials directly contradict the many claims of Bush officials that it was aggressively pursuing al-Qaida prior to 9/11, and that nobody could have predicted the attacks.
And thousands of Americans died. Then tens if not hundreds of thousands of Afghanis and Iraqis died from further Bush/Republican incompetence. And anyone who thinks that the fallout from Bush's 9/11, Afghan, and Iraq fiascos is over has no idea what is going on in the hearts and minds of the relatives of the people Bush - and in their minds, all of America - killed. And because 9/11 is far from over, and because someone halfway competent needs to be in charge, this country cannot afford another modern Republican president. It's too dangerous.

Romney - who is exactly the same as Bush but without Junior's rapier wit, work ethic or keen, probing mind- must be defeated.
