Osama bin Laden's "Gift" to George W. Bush. Please vote him out of office as soon as you can.

I can't say this any better than AMERICABlog does, so I'm just going to borrow their post:
Osama is a "good" "gift," GOP & Bush campaign say

by John in DC - 10/30/2004 04:54:21 PM

The Bush campaign has called it a "good" thing that Osama bin Laden is still alive and kicking and threatening to make American blood fill the streets our our country, according to a story in today's NY Daily News. And a senior GOP strategist has called Osama's reappearance and threats to kill thousands more Americans "a little gift."

This election is over, folks.

George Bush's campaign thinks Osama being alive and threatening to kill even more Americans is "good." A top GOP strategist thinks Osama planning to launch an even-bigger-September-11 is "a little gift." I'm glad the 3,000 who died on September 11 were able to give this good gift to the Bush campaign, after all, without their deaths Bush wouldn't have this good gift to enjoy only 3 days before the election.

How serious a matter is this? Imagine if John Kerry's people had called Osama plotting to kill thousands of Americans "good"? Imagine if a top Democratic strategist had called Osama bin Laden "a little gift"?

This needs to be the talk of the Internet. Make George Bush explain to the American people why Osama's threats to make blook run in American streets are "good" "gifts".
I know this election has become a bloodsport. I know both sides want desperately to win. I know perspective tends to vanish when time is short and all you can think of is hoping to prevail on Tuesday.

But come on, folks, is there nothing the Bush team won't say or do in order to win? How indecent, even nauseating, is this? They're actually happy that Osama bin Laden - whom their candidate has repeatedly failed to bring to justice - is still out there making his awful threats? Gosh, if he did launch another attack and kill even more Americans, would they be ecstatic?

They failed, people. George Bush swore on Sept. 17, 2001, to bring Osama bin Laden to justice - and he failed. And now his campaign people are chortling and celebrating that failure.

Don't reward this sickening glee, please. If it doesn't traduce the memories of the victims of 9/11 - victims George Bush uses in his campaign - I don't know what does. We really can do better. For the sake of those who died in the World Trade Center, and the rest of us, we better do better.
