GOP Using Terror Threat for Campaign Fodder
You've gotta be kidding!
The 9/11 attacks happened on President George W. Bush's watch, AFTER Bush had received intelligence reports stating that Osama bin Laden was planning a terrorist attack inside the United States.
When Osama bin Laden was finally tracked down and killed, it was on President Obama's watch.
And yet the GOP is still pretending that Republicans have a better handle on foreign policy and national security. Several congressional races are featuring ads that associate the Islamic terror threat with President Obama's “weak” leadership.
Notorious chickenhawk and former Playgirl pinup Scott Brown, running for the Senate, says in a commercial:
“Radical Islamic terrorists are threatening to cause the collapse of our country. President Obama and Sen. Shaheen seem confused about the nature of the threat. Not me.”
What's he gonna do, go over to Syria and start pole dancing?
