Bush just told us what the October surprise will be....Osama Bin Laden...
...in his presser with Mushy he just said "...if we find, I mean WHEN we find Osama Bin Laden..."

There you have it ladies and gentlemen, confirmation about the specifics of the October Surprise...

And Mr & Mrs Numbskull will lap it up...

We are soooooooooooooo fucked.....

2. If the stupidity of the majority of Americans is that high,
then we are indeed fucked, regardless of whether OBL is "caught."

21. I don't agree with that percentage.
I'd say 30% at the very most.

29. Waiver does not equal confirmed. They mean 2 totally different things.
And I don't think 25% waiver.

5. I believe Osama is dead, but the fascists want him alive and loose
Goldstein lives! (Is it 'Goldstein'? It is hell getting old...)

20. Yeah, I think so. Emmanuel Goldstein, I think it is.
Been a long time. But I'm reluctant to pick it up and reread it. Too horrifying and depressing in light of current events.

6. so lets examine this
In 2004 some came out of the wood work and said that bin laden would be the october surprise, and we would lose in 2004. bin laden was not killed or caught, so there goes that theory, except it is being brought up again

First of all, if bin laden was caught or killed it would be a GOOD THING!!! Not only for the country, but for the world

The whole premise of this thread implies there is some conspiricy, and that bin laden has already been captured without any evidence of the sort

There are enough real issues to hold this administration and the republican congress accountable without looking for illusions

8. The general public will not hold them accountable...
...they haven't yet have they? And with the chorus of praise constantly spewing from the corporate media presstitutes, you really think the end result would be any different?

Bin Laden wasn't caught in '04, but he conveniently released a videotape at election time that helped the giggling murderer didn't he?

13. ok, let's examine it BETTER...who sent out a videotape on the eve of the
election? and who did kerry admit swung the election against him in 2004?


hmmm?


hmmm?

oh by golly, it WAS bin laden, exhorting everyone to vote for Kerry, which of course (wink wink) had the exact opposite result.

I still think kerry won the election anyways, but that didn't help.

did you conveniently FORGET that?

23. as I stated in my last sentence.
however, the point is that the Bin Ladin tape was USED on the eve of the election, regardless of whether it was effective.
And, do you recall that terrorist tape the week before, that looked like Rove in terrorist gear, and then was never heard of again?

7. I got to agree
but there is the potential for this to look planned and backfire. There really is.

9. I think that's why Mushy was told to get his ass to DC...
...I bet you he was told to keep his mouth shut until he was told otherwise...

11. Well, I'd rather have that versus an invasion of Iran.
If this election is doomed to be stolen, I'd rather have curtailed military activities. Ah, what am I talking about?! He'll do both Osama and Iran . . .

16. He would've pulled Osama out in 2004 if he could have
Finding him at this point would be almost comical since it will have basically been five years since "dead or alive".

17. What would happen if someone stole him from the freezer?
they'd be stuck for an October surprise -

oh the Iranian president will do (says Rove)save Osama for 2008

18. Naw, You're ALL Wrong
The October Surprise will be Inter-Racial Sex on 'Survivor.' While everyone is distracted with that Rove will have the Lieberman pollster who just pled guilty to fraud cook up some numbers showing a "resurgence" of Republicans in return for "reconsidering" her sentence & this will give cover to Diebold programming the machines to give the GOP a comfortable lead where they need it without being obvious.

19. I'll bet there have been secret casting calls in Hollywood.
How many of you agents out there had clients auditioning for OSB recently?
