9/11 was a “political opportunity” not a disaster for Republicans. . . “because they were able to take that and use it to stifle their domestic critics, push through a radical agenda, try to silence anybody who opposed him. It essentially won him another term in 2004 based on 9/11 because he wasn’t popular on any other matter. So, for Republicans, even today, 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving. The fact that 3,000 people died is incidental to them. They don’t care about that. What was there was a political opportunity and he took it.”Republicans don't care about those who died on 9/11? Let me educate this fool....
Daily Kos: 9/11 Attack Was No Big Deal.
Daily Kos: April 2006: "So Over It"
Somebody has to be the first one to say it.
I'm over it.
Yes I was somewhat personally affected (no one that close to me died, but my son's playmate was in the towers... in utero.... and got out). 9/11 is my wedding anniversary so I was out of town, and spent the day rafting, which may well have given me a different perspective.... Perhaps it's a helpful perspective, you be the judge.

Don't forget what Kos said after four Americans were killed by Iraqi terrorist in Fallujah in 2004.
"Every death should be on the front page. Let the people see what war is like. This isn't an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush's folly. That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries [sic]. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them."
"Kos" like most of his liberal Democrat buddies, will deny that Islamic terror exists, yet he writes books comparing the conservative movement to Islamic terrorists.
So who doesn't care about those who were killed on 9/11?
