If 911 isn't the defining issue then the American public is dumber than I thought.

Kerry can regale us with his "heroics" in Vietnam of 30 years ago; yet it is improper for Bush to remind us of the deadliest attack on American soil and his response to it.

Left wing logic at work.

As for Democrats, they'd be wise to get over the idea that Mr. Kerry's Vietnam biography will cover them on the defense issue.

Not very likely. This is Democrat freakin' Gospel in 2004. Prepare for absolute freak-out in the press when this is challenged.

On the positive side. It's true. And the press can't make it untrue.

The events of 9/11 affected all Americans not just those who lost family members in the attacks. The media again is showing its true colors in sigthing only the complainer and not those who have no objection to the ads. For the family members I think they do a dishonor to their loved ones . President Bush held this country together in the days after 9/11. He has led the country in the War on Terror and has brought the terror network that planned the attacks down. The family members have other things on their agendas and the truth is not one of them. BUSH 2004

"For most Americans, 9/11 was the defining event of a generation, and they'll want to hear a serious debate about which candidate has the best policies to keep them safer in the years ahead."

I sure do wanna hear. We've chased the terrorists from Saudi Arabia who prosecuted 9-11 in all the wrong countries thus far.

The whiners don't have the exclusive license on the pain of September 11, 2001. What happened in NY, Washington and PA happened to America.
BTW, the WTC site doesn't belong to the the complainers either. If they want to determine what is built on that site, they can buy it.

Bush was in The Big Chair on 9/11, so it's his issue to seize. 'Nuff said.

How dare you exploit the victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg in a re-election campaign, Mr. Lincoln!

"You are right."

I wish I was not in this case. Color me as a pessimist who wants to be optomistic

You are both too cynical. We all know that Democrats win the dumb vote hands down. Yet the GOP controls the House, Senate, and Presidency.

The American people have shown time and time again we are far more mature and intelligent than we are given credit for.

Where, for example, was the tut-tutting about the former President "exploiting" the Oklahoma City bombing by giving an election-year speech there in April 1996?

I hope some smart reporter digs up examples of bill clinton using the OKC bombing during his last campaign!

It's interesting to note that when Pearl Harbor was attacked the memory didn't fade. Today The World Trade Center attack is not even newsworthy according to some.

"The American people have shown time and time again we are far more mature and intelligent than we are given credit for."

Cite your evidence.
