A gem from Daily Kos, 2004:
“Bush is calling on the biggest disaster in our country’s history, and indeed in the history of the fire service, to win sympathy for his campaign. Since the attacks, Bush has been using images of himself putting his arm around a retired FDNY fire fighter on the pile of rubble at ground zero. But for two and a half years he has basically shortchanged fire fighters and the safety of our homeland by not providing fire fighters the resources needed to do the job that America deserves.
…”We’re going to be aggressive and vocal in our efforts to ensure that the citizens of this country know about Bush’s poor record on protecting their safety and providing for the needs of the people who are supposed to respond in an emergency.“
And here is Daily Kos today:
How dare the president strut around, acting like he accomplished something! Who does he think he is? George Bush in a flight suit?
I’m not holding my breath for Kos to be aggressive in his effort to remind us of 4 dollar gas today.
Yet another reason why the left lost me 10 years ago.
