Caught Bush’s speech tonight.
So nice that the administration told the networks that the speech was to commemorate 9/11 and honor those who died….except what we got was more desperate attempts to defend Bush’s increasingly obvious mistake to invade Iraq, linking it to “the War on Terror”, and reminding us that “we need to be united” (in other words, don’t listen to the 2/3rds of the American people who disagree with the administration….and for God’s sake, whatever you do, don’t vote us out of power, ‘cuz that wouldn’t be “united”….).
I know I shouldn’t be surprised when a Republican exploits 9/11 for their own political gain, but I figured that doing so on the day itself, in the guise of a commemoration, was beyond the bounds of even that morally-bankrupt philosophy.
Huh. Guess not.
