WASHINGTON (AP) President Bush's campaign commercials on the air just one day have angered several relatives of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and a firefighters union that has endorsed Democratic rival John Kerry demanded the ads be pulled.

....tis funny as I get older I seem to dis remember things.I guess Bill Clinton didn't go to Oklahoma City and hug people in front of a fawning press? He also did not go to Normandy and straighten flags in a cemetery of fallen silent GIs. Every time I see a "NEVER AGAIN" Poster in mememry of holocaust victims,ones showing the skeletal walking dead, I guess the victims have given permission from the grave and all survivors have signed off?..

Obviously this is a sad sad attempt to deny anyone the "right" to speak up about the war on terror since the left is so profoundly against your national saftey. Where was the U.N. when the French bailed in Rwanda?...NOTE to the Black Caucus, when you investigate Bush for Haiti lets not forget Billy did nothing when one million Rwandans died by machete. That's the same Billy that installed "Blinky "Aristede, the two cases are therefore intertwined.

This may get a lot of people upset, but I've been saying for some time now that by the time this is all over we're going to wish those 3,000 people were still alive and many of their family members were in those buildings instead.

New Yorkers always have a way of pointing out to us that the city is filled with professional malcontents.

Just clicked on the 'endorsements' section of your link and found - Honorable Henry Cisneros.

Should one really still be considered honorable - even after the conviction?

My reply to those democrat stooges:

The nation needs to be reminded international terrorism is a war. President Bush is the only candidate who is treating the subject as if it were truly a war. John 'Gigolo' Kerry is trying to treat terrorism as a law-enforcement problem. What does Kerry plan to do about state-sponsored terrorism? Send the local police over to Afghanistan and Iraq and arrest the terrorists? President Bush is sending the Navy, Marines, Army and Air Force to kill the terrorists.

I've seen the commercials, and as a 9/11 survivor who lost friends and neighbors that awful morning, those images do make me a little uncomfortable. However, I realize that 9/11 was the "defining moment" of Bush's presidency thus far (and probably of his life), and he can't campaign for re-election without talking about how he, as President, dealt with that day and everything since.

The History Channel aired a special on the WTC construction last night. Pretty amazing that they stood for awhile, even after being blasted by thousands of gallons of jet fuel...

I'm just about sick of the 9/11 families pissing and moaning about everything.

Actually, the ones bitching and moaning are a distinct, but vocal, minority.

I have another question for the pacifists:

Suppose that Osama bin Laden were placed in a chair in the same room with you, and you were handed a gun and told that it was your job to make sure that he never planned another terrorist attack against the American people or anyone else.

What would you do, and why?

The pacifists need to be reminded if Osama bin Laden is released, he will go back to planning even more destructive terrorist attacks. If Osama bin Laden is given life imprisonment, he will probably use his attorney and other visitors to communicate orders to his terrorist cells.

Yes. The little liberals squeel and whine when they know they're being made to look like the ingrates they are.

Hit them harder, Rove. Do it!

I was just talking with a friend via phone. He is a democrat who lives in N.C. He said, "I wouldn't vote for kerry if he was the only person running." He thinks kerry has zero chance of winning. If a democrat thinks that way we may be in pretty good shape.

He is dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn't. These family people did lose loved ones but the nation suffered also. President Bush pulled the USA through some of the toughest times in the last 60 years. So what if he used images from the WTC. He has the right to do so based on the results he has produced to defend this country and how he has led the effort to make those who planned 9/11 pay for what they did. I think that some of the complainers have an agenda that in truth is an insult to their loved ones and all who died on that day. All Americans shared in the trama of that day in September when our world changed. I say shame on some of those use this to attack our president.

Where is the outrage when CNNBCBS and their ilk run footage of 9/11 or special reports or stories about 9/11 all to make a buck?

I don't know but I think I'd be miffed if 9/11 WEREN"T remembered in this campaign. I'd say the Firefighters Union doesn't represent the true feelings of many of it's members. JMHO

Well it's sundown on the unions
it was made in the USA
Surely was a good idea
till greed got in the way

This is all a bunch of whooie. The media is trying to create a controversy when there isn't one. It's amazing that these complaintants about Bush's ads came out in less than one day after the ads came out. The Kerry campaign had these few Demorats lined up with the media before The President's ads were released. The media loves McCain-Feingold.
