Bush staff calling tape gift for campaign [THIS IS SICK]
http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/247753p-212149c....

See tape as boost for Prez

We want people to think 'terrorism' for the last four days," said a Bush-Cheney campaign official. "And anything that raises the issue in people's minds is good for us."

A senior GOP strategist added, "anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety helps Bush."

He called it "a little gift," saying it helps the President but doesn't guarantee his reelection.

4. Just The Opposite - Reminds People that OBL is still alive
and well.

Let's all remember "Dead or Alive" "Hunt Em Down" "Smoke 'Em Out", etc.

In four more days, OBL will still have a job but Bush will not.

6. SOOOO sick!!
They see Osama bin Laden alive and well and making tapes as a "little gift" to the president?

Shrub should remember to send OBL a little thank you note -- doesn't want to forget his manners, now does he?

7. All together now--BWAH HA HA HA HA HA!!!!
Edited on Sat Oct-30-04 12:09 PM by rocknation
What this tape is going to have ME thinking for the next four days is that Bush has neither captured bin Laden nor liberated Iraq--which, by the way, he invaded on what he either knew or should have known were false pretenses. Also, has it occured to the Bush camp that Osama WANTS him to stay in office precisely because he IS doing such a lousy job? It's certainly occured to me!

8. "Anything that makes people nervous about their personal safety"
is a gift? olly, you think that attitude explains the orange alert, the constant scare tactics, etc?

Too bad they are wrong. Too bad that people also expect someone to actually work to make them safe instead of merely reminding them of dangers.

13. "Thank you sir! May we have another? " Says chimp and Rove
Haa Haaaa Haaaaaa!!!! Of course little chimpy and fat Igor. My pleasure. "Do you want to lick my terrorist anus or feet before I grant you and your countrymen your final wish?" Says OBL.

15. this is the 3rd time OBL has shown up at critical points in the Bush
presidency.

USS Cole incident during his first election. * even admits now he was unconcerned about terrorism before 9/11, I was always curious as to why the Cole thing didn't bother him more.

9/11 saved a sinking one term pres and shot him to an undeserved 80% approval.

now. I'll bet they're cheering this, the bastards. And a hint of what would come in a second term * will never have.

Remarkable timing, isn't it?

16. Isn't it sick to see Repugs so happy that OBL is still alive?
Really, did you ever think you'd see the day?

Anyhow, judging from comments I'm seeing from rank and file voters everywhere today, many ain't buying what the Bushies are trying to sell. Why is this mass murderer still alive to make tapes?

17. Let;s try to get these quotes more-widely reported in the press:
the Dubya campaign likes the OBL tape. Think of what the GOP spinmeisters would have made of a similar statement had one been made by the Kerry campaign. But the thing is: this doesn't need spin, just widespread reporting.

18. I don't see how it's a gift to them.
The way I read the translation, ObL flat-out threatened red states.

20. We need to call them on this! Right now!
Talk about politicizing this! Wes Clarke or somebody should be on the air RIGHT NOW saying how sad it is that the Bushco clan can only see this grave threat in terms of how it helps their chances to hold on to power. No thought for the American people or how f--king painful it must be for the 9/11 FAMILIES to see this bastard taunting us.

I can't believe them. You know it's funny - the way Mann Coulter keeps calling US traitors and it's really them! They don't love this country - just power. They make me sick.

22. Using Osama to divide America
It is absolutely sick and I really wish this campaign would call them on it. "It's great Osama threatened America because we can use it in our campaign." What kind of whacked out American would vote for that shit? They just disgust me.

23. CNN online poll...
is showing that the bin Laden tape helps Kerry more than Bush.

No influence 36%
Helps Bush 28%
Helps Kerry 35%

--

As the story wears down over the Halloween weekend, I'm confident this will end up being a big backfire, and the Bush team won't be able to react fast enough to clean it up.
