We were one, we were in shock together, we finally understood a new and horrific reality together and we all got behind the drive to defeat this enemy where he lives.
This was an unbearable event-this oneness, this family that is our nation bound by geography and belief in freedom, bound by foundations that to this day resound a clarity of dignity and independence, to certain people who understand that the only way to win is to divide and couquer.
hillary klinton, only days after 9/11 held a headline from a newspaper up on the floor of our very senate that proclaimed "BUSH KNEW". (And she spoke to this headline, saying our President knew that horrific 9/11 attack was going to happen, insinuating that he LET it happen. Just disgusting. Imagine anyone doing that. But especially a senator. And especially THAT senator-whose own husband had neglected the threat of terror with saxophonic glee.)
In this one extremely hurtful and insidious act...she helped energize and mobilize those who fight to keep us divided along every line possible, knowing that to destroy trust in our leader would help those, who like herself, put party above their nation's security and welfare.
I will never forget hillary's actions that day. Ever. And I hope I have the opportunity someday, to tell her this to her face.
I know, fat chance.
Howard Dean said "we need to remember that the enemy here is George Bush."
How do you unite with people who say(and really believe) things like this? This is not your fathers democrat party, and it saddens me to say that. I'm trying to think of any one in the leadership of the democrat party that I'd trust in power for more that 8 sec.
