We Can't Afford This

I sat there stunned. I could not believe what I was watching. It was an attack ad. An attack ad directed at George W. Bush. My first thought was ” We should not be stooping to their level”, my second, I have to admit, was that it’s payback time for “The swift boat” ads.

Those of us who live in Central New York never saw any of the partisan,bias nonsense alot of the country saw during the 04 election.It was pretty exciting to see an actual attack ad made by a group lobbying for the Democratic party. I was excited until I saw the Ad.

Let's look at all of the complete and total failures that this administration has ownership of. The Iraq war, Social Security reform, "No Child Left Behind", the Haliburton investigation, the "Downing Street Memos", 9/11, Homeland Security improvements, Trade Deficit, skyrocketing debt, Abu Graib, Gitmo, approximately 1,740 grieving families and a divided nation. There are many more but i'd like to get to the point.

Of all the things we could have attacked this administration for, these Democratic lobbyists spent millions, I'm guessing, attacking his stance on Terri Schiavo.

Can you believe that the Democratic party, who obviously had a hand in the creation of this ad, thought that this would be the best way to send a message to Bush that we don't want a Supreme Court Justice who is "Far Right".

I've spent the last year trying to figure out how Kerry lost the election to such an obviously corrupt and incompetent president.

Elmer Fudd could have beaten G.W. in 04. How could the Democrats support that bad of a candidate, not argue against all that Bush and Cheney had done in the previous four years and sit back and allow themselves to be smeared in the media for actually fighting, not dodging the Vietnam war.

I now have the answer: The Democratic party.
