1. There Is Without A Doubt A Real Threat Of Terrorism. But Shrubby Has Only
increased that threat ten fold. We need to rid this country of this gop controlled administration so that the democrats can be strong in protecting us from this very real threat, as opposed to making it worse.

5. I think there's a real threat. I think the admin. is making it worse.

And I honestly think they prefer to live in a world where there is a nebulous, scary "enemy" that requires ever-escalating Military-Industrial defense budgets and boondoggles.

I think the most frightening two words these folks have heard in the past twenty-five years are "Peace Dividend".

6. Bush has cozyed up to the terrorists...
...pakistan and saudi arabia.

Iraq is a total distraction, and a waste of resources.

7. Voted 2 but they're doing much more than botching it...
... they're bolstering terrorism and creating more fanatics.

8. It is a combination of real and synthetic.
Which came first is like asking which came first the chicken or the egg?
If the CIA had not pumped tens of millions of dollars into the madrasas
in Pakistan in the80s would we be where we are today? If we had not funded
Bin Laden and Al Qaeda - his "base" of Mujahedeen in Afganistan would
we be where we are today? We have discovered countless times that the Terror alerts
have been bogus for mainly political reasons.

9. Bushco is complicit in 80% of terrorism on our soil, somewhat less abroad.
