  •  Very nice write-up. But why is this here? (2+ / 0-)

    Why hasn't this been the central message of every Democratic politician, since, well, 9/12/01, but at the very least from the moment the American people elected a Democratic Congress in November 2006?  Why isn't Cheney under investigation?

    We all know the result if 9/11 had happened under a Democratic administration.  That it happened under a Republican one and it's still Republicans who claim the mantle of patriotism and run rings around Democrats in setting the terms of every debate means one of two things: either all Democrats are complete idiots (which is hard to believe) or the Democrats who hold power have goals that are largely indistinguishable from Republican ones.

      that 9/11 would not have happened under a Democratic administration -- if Gore had received a briefing entitled "Bin Laden To Strike In US" I doubt he'd take off for a month's vacation...maybe a weekend working break at Camp David at most, while he figured out what was needed to do to counteract the possibility.
