Bush supporters are struggling to prop up the image of their leader. Now former Bush member of the social security administration and proponent of so-called “compassionate conservatism” Tony Campbell, now a blogger at themoderatevoices.com; says that the saddest thing about 9/11 was what it had done to the Bush Presidency.
For me, the saddest part about the terrorist attacks of 9-11 is the long-term impact on the presidency of George W. Bush. As Bush prepares to leave office, in my opinion, the presidency of George W. Bush was hijacked as surely as the four planes that crashed on that fateful September morning seven years ago. The event of 9-11 pushed all other domestic and foreign policy initiatives off of the table. The demands of Homeland Security replaced the promises of “Compassionate Conservatism.”
Campbell also portends that in about a quarter century Bush will be vindicated and remembered as a great President.
The saddest part of 9/11? How about the Civil liberties that have been violated and the constitution that has been run thought the shredder? How about the climate of fear? And what about the real saddest and most tragic part about 9/11, you know the 3,000 or so innocent Americans who were killed by Al-Queda terrorists including Osama Bin Laden who is still not captured or killed?
Meanwhile those like Bush,Cheney, and Giuliani have spent the past eight years exploiting the Hell out of that horrendous and somber day, never turning down an opportunity to use it as a term to dupe the public and rally the base by exploiting this nation’s emotions.
