New Anti-Obama 527 Plans Attack On "Hope" Theme

Click to Read

New Anti-Obama 527 Plans Attack on "Hope" Theme Republican political strategists in California are setting up a new political organization, which hopes to run television commercials undermining the central themes of Senator Obama's presidential campaign while underscoring the strengths of his Republican opponent, Senator McCain of Arizona. The organization's website includes a 30-second video that shows images of war and misery around the world as an announcer gravely warns of the dangers of putting America in untested hands.

The whole point of this thread is the ad...

You didn't say that UnDave but the ad is implying it.

When did I say that if you vote for Obama, we'll be attacked again? Or vote for McCain and he'll prevent attacks. I merely stated that Bush has done more to protect our way of life from these terrorists, and that fact is born out by the number of attacks, or lack of attacks in the last 7 years following.

No Dave, we did not go to meet these men head on. Bush launched wars in Afghanistan and Iraq instead of immediately marshalling then-existent international sympathy and willingness to help find bin Laden. Declaring war on a country not involved in the attack cannot be considered doing something. Using the threat of terrorism to suggest that if we vote for the wrong person we'll be attacked again dishonors us all.

I counted 7. Then how many times were we attacked under HW Bush? How many under Clinton? What did either of those presidents do in response to these attacks? W Bush was attacked once, and then sent the military to meet these men head on. Many on here don't like what Bush has done on this front, but he obviousily has done a lot more than the last 4 to prevent terrorists from attacking us here, or abroad.

Figured you'd want to delete some. Suicide bombings in which Americans were targeted and killed under Reagan would include four indisputable major events, like embassy and barracks bombings, with a death toll of at least 288. That doesn't include Pan Am flight 103, which happened in December of 1988 when Reagan still was president but Bush had been elected to succeed him.

Maybe I should have been more specific. How many terrorist suicide bombings occured in which Americans were targeted and killed under Reagan?
stephley stephley 8 years
Between 6 and 10 - allowing you the option of arguing against including kidnappings and some hijackings.

OK, I'll bite. How many times were we attacked under Reagan?
stephley stephley 8 years
How long should we live in the past? Wanna count the attacks under Reagan? At some point, moving forward would be a good idea.

Looking back. We have been attacked once during the Bush admin. We were attacked how many times under Clinton? What did he do about it?

It's kind of like the guy standing in his living room with an elephant gun claiming he's doing a great job because there are no elephants around: we're as much on the verge of no attacks as we are the other way - other countries could make a much stronger argument for the U.S. being the country to fear.

There are certain things that should be off limits and I think 9/11 should be one of them , IMHO!
