Okay, this makes me sick….Posted: April 22, 2003
It’s from the New York Times for today.
“WASHINGTON, April 21 — President Bush’s advisers have drafted a re-election strategy built around staging the latest nominating convention in the party’s history, allowing Mr. Bush to begin his formal campaign near the third anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and to enhance his fund-raising advantage, Republicans close to the White House say.
In addition, Mr. Bush’s advisers say they are prepared to spend as much as $200 million — twice the amount of his first campaign — to finance television advertising and other campaign expenses through the primary season that leads up to the Republican convention in September 2004. That would be a record amount by a presidential candidate, and would be especially notable because Mr. Bush faces no serious opposition for his party’s nomination.”
I swear this bozo we call President uses September 11th to his own advantage at every opportunity. He evokes its memory in every speech, just to remind us about how he happened to be the leader when the event occurred. (Or maybe he needs to remind himself; he’s such an idiot…) He’s using for political gain an event which should never be taken for granted in such a fashion. It seriously gives me the willies.
The scary thing is that (and not to be a pessimist) he’s probably going to win because he’s got so much f*#@ing money. We really need campaign finance reform in this country. It’s not really a democracy as long as corporate interests can pay so much freaking money to get their own agendas rubber-stamped by politicians.
