Bush 9/11 Ads Backfiring


by paradox

Top story on the Yahoo AP wire page is the backlash from 9/11 victim families resenting Bush for using 9/11 in his election advertising.

"'Until Bush cooperates with the federal commission that is investigating the nation's preparedness before the attacks and its response "by testifying in public under oath ... he should not be using 9/11 as political propaganda,' said Kristen Breitweiser, of Middletown Township, N.J., whose husband, Ronald Breitweiser, 39, died in the World Trade Center.

'Three thousand people were murdered on President Bush's watch,' Breitweiser said. "He has not cooperated with the investigation to find out why that happened.'"

The story is full of devastating quotes. Bush blew it with this, and for once the media is noticing.
