If Only the GOP....

....had this guy, they might have a chance of winning this election.

The GOP has failed to make 9/11 the central issue in this election precisely because they don't have people like Dhiren Barot to wheel out before America to prove they are doing their jobs.

In fact, other than the pathetic Moussaui, there hasn't been a single person to face trial in the U.S. that had anything to do with 9/11 or was on the same level as the people who committed the horrific acts of that day.

Instead Saddam Hussein is to be hanged, reminding everyone that instead of catching the people who planned and financed 9/11, we are fighting a war far away from what should be the central front in the War on Terror. Few believe this has made us safer.

Although no one is shedding any tears for Saddam Hussein, what America wanted to see (and still wants to see) is the people responsible for 9/11 in his position, or something like it.

George Bush and his do-nothing 109th Congress have failed the Amercian peoople in their solemn oath to do this.

But more to the point, Americans have not forgotten. Everyone swore on that day to not forget. This fact alone, I think, will turn into some votes of no-confidence against the GOP.

There are plenty of reasons for a vote of no-confidence against the GOP, and Iraq tops the list. I just thought it was interesting how an issue like 9/11, once the darling child of the GOP, is now working against them.

May you reap what you have sown, GOP.


  • It is too bad that they have failed in this charge. You are right, Bush made the vow on Ground Zero. That was his Gettysburg address moment. He did well that day. Lincoln prosecuted the war to its conclusion and has inspired generations to fight racism and exploitation. Bush has brought about misery.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    Also, thanks for adding me to your blog roll. I will return the favor the next time I am in my template.

  • How far the Republicans have fallen.

    Thanks for the link-back, and your thoughtful comments.

  • Copy Editor, get blogrollings One click feature. It gives you a button to click, and BOOM! you got an addition to the blog roll.

    As far as the elections, Wednesday is going to be pretty bleak on certain blogs, this being one of them. I'm sure I'll read many posts about "stolen elections".

  • Crazy Politico,

    You may be right. I'm going with the masses on this one. Dems take the house and Republicans keep the Senate.

  • Republicans keep both houses:

    Dems refuse to look at media bias that is actually starting to hurt them rather than help:

    Rather than taking an honest introspective look at party objectives and views, Dems will claim that election was stolen because in their typical elitist mind set there is no way anyone would really want to actually vote for a Republican.

  • Geez, what was THAT?!! I got a clue for you, KALKI GAUR, nobody is gonna read a screed like that, even if you put it on your OWN blog. Which you should do. Just a gentle hint.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Prague Twin, I have high hopes the Dems will take the Senate, as well. Bush needs to be bitchslapped very hard by the American people for the terrible damage he has done. It will take years to undo all of it, the expen$e, the hatred generated in the Middle East. The terrorist networks encouraged and built by that hatred. And the lives lost and young men and women horribly wounded for life -- that can never be undone.

  • Man that wore me out and I didn't get it all read. I got to take a little nap so I can get up and go vote. We have one Rep. candidate for the Missouri House that supports the idea of making it easier for a Third Party candidate to get on the ballot. Guess who'll be getting my vote.

    God Bless America, God Save The Republic

  • Arch,

    Like I keep saying, put your money where your mouth is.

    Dems take the House.


    I totally agree, except that I think the Republicans will retain control of the Senate.


    I admire you for voting 3rd party. I have done it many times myself.

  • Oh, and Kalki,

    Sorry for deleting your "comment" but that is spam. (I am sure you are not coming back to check anyway)

  • CP, there are already a lot of stories about problems in Ohio (Dem areas) and Missouri (GOP areas). I'll look into the Blogrolling feature you reference. I like template-autonomy though.
