45% Blame Bush Administration For 9/11

by Steve

Don't despair too much over the Disney propaganda on behalf of the White House. They have their work cut out for them:

The percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington has risen from almost a third to almost half over the past four years, a CNN poll released Monday found.
Asked whether they blame the Bush administration for the attacks, 45 percent said either a "great deal" or a "moderate amount," up from 32 percent in a June 2002 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.
But the Clinton administration did not get off lightly either. The latest poll, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation for CNN, found that 41 percent of respondents blamed his administration a "great deal" or a "moderate amount" for the attacks.
That's only slightly less than the 45 percent who blamed his administration in a poll carried out less than a week after the attacks.

That’s about right. As time goes on, more and more people will pin a higher and higher degree of blame on Bush and a gradually lessening degree of blame on Clinton, who can’t and shouldn’t escape blame here. But it provides a possible explanation for the Disney smear campaign, as a White House effort to keep the cultists on the reservation, using $40 million of Disney’s money to do it.

Disney is the real sap here, with iffy ratings (twice as many viewers watched NBC’s Sunday night football, and just as many viewers watched CBS’s 9/11 noncontroversial documentary) on a project that forever tarnishes not only the Disney/ABC corporation as a GOP front operation, but also besmirches an ABC News operation as well.

Did Disney really plan to spend $40 million to barely beat "The Simpson's" in the ratings?
