I almost choked when I heard President Bush say, talking about the aborted London terror plot, "people in Washington just need to put politics aside and pull together in fighting terror."
He's right, of course.
But - it's a wonder lightning didn't strike him dead on the spot!
Does he think that we forget he and his henchmen accused Max Cleland of being cozy with Osama bin Laden?
Or that he swift-boated John Kerry as soft on terror?
Or that Republicans held their 2004 convention not far from Ground Zero and invoked September 11 twenty times in every speech?
How 'bout Karl Rove telling Republicans to take the war on terror and beat Democrats over the head with it?
Or Dick Cheney saying that, by defeating Joe Lieberman, Connecticut Democrats were simply encouraging "al Qaeda types?"
And, now it's John Spencer in New York, running ads with head shots of Hillary Clinton and Osama bin Laden, side by side.
Yes, Mr. President, in fighting terrorism, we should all put politics aside and focus on the job at hand.
So why don't you practice what you preach?
And, while you're at it, why don't you put a muzzle on attack dogs Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Ken Mehlman?
Until you do, Mr. President, you're all talk.
