Kerry is picking up some great endorsements:

Osama bin Laden
Yassar Arafat

Maybe he'll get the rest of his buds to throw in with him:

Kim Jong-il
Bashar Assad
Ali Khamenei
Hu Jintao
Robert Mugabe

Well, I don't think Bush is at a disadvantage vis-a-vis the bin Laden tape. Joe Piscopo was on Neil Cavuto. He said he's a Kerry supporter, but this tape makes him want to vote for Bush. "How dare that SOB try to influence our elections!"

That will be the reaction of a lot of people.

Wow, you can see even the physical resemblance! I wonder if they are related? or maybe John Kerry is masquerading as Osama Bin Laden?!!!!

If the Kerry campaign tries to spin this in any way, they're going to get bit bad. Having said that, I think it's true of the Bush campaign, too.

Bush doesn't have to spin it. He just needs to play to the awareness of the American voters of his war on terror, that he's eliminated many al-Qaeda members, and that we have to continue to fight them there or fight them here.

All he needs is Kim Jung Il and the New York Times for the Grand Slam.

Mark Raciot (sp) on Fox right now, says the campaign will not respond to tape. Response will come from the President/Gov't.

Anybody come up with Kerry's most likely response to this?

My guess: Had we not outsourced our national security to Afghan warlords at Tora Bora, had we not diverted ourselves in the Iraqi quagmire, we would have have captured or killed Bin Laden-- the mass murderer of 3,000 Americans.

Goodness, the alliance between the Left and our enemies is ongoing. The Arabs know who we are, better than we know who we are. And who we are is a country susceptible to this tape and the demagoguery of the Left.

Exactly right. By "spin" I meant this notion that somehow the tape constitutes an UBL "endorsement" of Kerry.

If he were stupid enough to attack the US on our shore in 1982 when Reagan was President, we would have a lot less terrorist today to worry about.

I would say Bin Laden has answered that pretty explicitly. He all but produced a Kerry/Edwards campaign sign!

"The infidel Mary Cheney is a lesbian."

"In addition, the infidel George Bush is outsourcing America's future with tax cuts to the wealthy. Where are the 1.6 million jobs? The infidel Bush is the first infidel since the infidel Herbert Hoover to lose jobs! Awake from your slumber, America! The infidel John Kerry has a plan. You can do better, Insha'Allah!"

"This does not add up, this sounds fake.

Why would he care if Bush "mislead the American people????

Now he's concerned about about us being mislead???

Doesn't add up my friends."

On the face of it, it sounds like he's setting us up for what's to come: a massive pre-election hit. And he wants to make sure everyone understands that it'll all be Dubya's fault when it comes. As in, "You poor misled American sheep, you follow Bush, you die. Don't blame me when your cities blow, blame him." Then off will go the stunned sheeple to vote for Kerry, who'll nuance them to safety. My take anyway.

Rhetorical question: will Michael Moore be embarrassed that bin Laden is taking a page out of his book?

I'll bet he's bursting with pride.

I am serious.

Countdown for how long before we hear the dems blame Karl Rove for setting this up to make Kerry look bad?

Let them. They can explain how Rove made Osama sound like he's campaigning for Kerry.

I agree. This whole communication doesn't ring true to me. It doesn't make sense. There is more to it than meets the eye.

What a strange, strange world we are living in these days.

Fox at a rally saying President Bush will speak on it shortly.

I'm not following what you mean by saying Bush is at a disadvantage. I'm not seeing that, no matter what the Kamp Kerry spin is.

Oh---wait, James Rosen said President Bush made taped remarks a short time ago to the reporters with him and they will be released shortly and played.

Sorry, but I recall that criticism long before Moore and his screed. He just made it more famous.

I didn't know about Bush reading to the kids prior to Moore's film, but maybe some did.

I'm pretty confident, though, that it wasn't *common knowledge* before Moore's film. Mentioning it wouldn't have made much sense before then -- meaning the video had to be made sometime after.

But setting that aside, Osama also mentions Kerry, so it could have been made no earlier than Kerry's nomination.

I meant that as President, as Commander In Chief, President Bush can't use cheap political stunts, or issue foolish spinning shit out to voters, as Kerry and his people are already doing, to make political hay out of this bin Laden tape. Of course President Bush wouldn't do that anyway.

I'm sorry I didn't make myself clearer on that.

Makes sense to me. al Qaeda hope that they can scare the voters like they did in Spain. Screw al Qaeda. If OBL is still alive, he's gonna be awfully disappointed after Bush is reelected.

Reading the "transcript" of OBL's tape from Drudge's site, this sounds EXACTLY like a bunch of DNC talking points.

Phrases like:
"free people don't let go of their security" (a poke at the patriot act? hmmm)

"Bush is still practicing distortion and misleading on you" (sounds just like some media fund kindling I just got in the mail)

"we were so fed up" (don't the democraps always say we just need to understand them?)

"goes back to 1982", (beside's W, who is the Dems most hated president?)

"killing our children and women" (Dems ALWAYS invoke the emotional hotbutton of Women and Children)

"the results of Sept 11 were successful in his opinion" (the lib's line about "fueling jihad?"

"Here he is being influenced by these regimes, Royal and military." (Moore's lie about Bush and Saudi's?)

" he transferred the oppression of freedom and tyranny to his son and they call it th e Patriot Law to fight terrorism" Another swipe at the lib's hated patriot act.

"putting his sons as governors" "to Florida to falsify elections to benefit from it" Yeah, right out of 9/11, This is lib propaganda. Either OBL is copying the DNC or the DNC WROTE THIS!

"execute the whole operation in 20 minutes. Before Bush and his administration would pay attention and we never thought that the high commander of the US armies would leave 50 thousand of his citizens in both towers to face the horrors by themselves when they most needed him because it seemed to distract his attention from listening to the girl telling him about her goat butting was more important than paying attention to airplanes butting the towers which gave us three times the time to execute the operation thank god." Yeah, right out of moore's book.



Bottom line is an american Lib wrote this. I don't know how they did it, but it's a fake sure as hell.

Yeah, the "free people" remark really pissed me off. Tell that to the women and girls in Afghanistan during the Taliban. Tell that the women who are victims of honor killings, stonings and rapes. I spit on this animals version of freedom!
