So Bush has begun running campaign spots in Iowa. I saw some snippets on Meet the Press yesterday. They're basically to scare people into voting for him by further politicizing the war on terror. Since this is the way they want to play so be it. But let us all remember a few things-

*They haven't caught Osama Bin Laden
*They have all our troops, national guardsmen, and reservists fighting in Iraq and not protecting us here if something should happen.
*They never gave NYC the money they promised after Sept. 11
*They have hurled state governments into fiscal crisis so our first responders in case of attack (fire, police, etc.) are now more underfunded, understaffed, and underprepared than before Sept. 11
*Clinton gave the Bush administration comprehensive inntelligence that may have prevented Sept. 11 in the first place. Bush's hatred for all things Clinton led him to ignore it until the first week of September 2001, after he returned from a 5 week vacation in Crawford.
*They have spent the past two years trying to keep us scared, while dragging us to war in Iraq, which had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks.
*They have spent the last two years trying to convince us Iraq did have something to do with the terrorist attacks.
*The war in Iraq is actually breeding sympathy for groups like Al Quiada and swelling it's ranks(ie. breeding more terrorists.)
*They have largely ignored Afghanistan (where the terrorists actually trained) allowing the taliban to regroup.
*They have refused to cooperate with the investigation into the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

So what it boils down to is this, do you think that having Bush in the White House makes us any safer than we were before 9/11? As a magic eight ball might say-"All signs point to no".
