Whatever shortcomings he had in the growth of government, one thing you can say about President George W. Bush, he kept his word about taking the fight to the Islamofascist terrorist collective who attacked us on that day.
Americans, for a brief period, were behind him, but then Democrats, led by new DNC Chair (now Vigrinia Gubernatorial candidate) "Terrible" Terry McAuliffe, wanted to go back to war against Bush, because they were angrier about the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential election than they were the televised murder of their fellow citizens.
Beating Bush became such an obsession to partisans like McAwful that he managed to get his arms around fat boy Michael Moore when the crockumentary director came to DC to premier his 9/11 blood libel, "Fahrenheit 9/11".
National Review, via Free Republic, on June 24, 2004 reported how McAwful was moved by Moore's wacky conspiracy theories.
Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe says he believes radical filmmaker Michael Moore's assertion that the United States went to war in Afghanistan not to avenge the terrorist attacks of September 11 but instead to assure that the Unocal Corporation could build a natural gas pipeline across Afghanistan for the financial benefit of Vice President Dick Cheney and former Enron chief Kenneth Lay.
McAuliffe and a number of other prominent Democrats attended a screening of Moore's new documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, at the Uptown Theatre in Washington Wednesday night. McAuliffe called the film "very powerful, much more powerful than I thought it would be." When asked by National Review Online if he believed Moore's account of the war in Afghanistan, McAuliffe said, " I believe it after seeing that." The DNC chairman added that he had not heard of the idea before seeing the movie, but said he would "check it out myself and look at it, but there are a lot of interesting facts that he [Moore] brought out today that none of us knew about."But there was a problem. Moore's crockumentary was a collection of lies and distortions slapped together to play and manipulate on the emotions of the American public (Breitbart - Big Journalism).
A short time later, McAuliffe was asked by CNN, "Do you think the movie was essentially fair and factually based?" "I do," McAuliffe said. "I think anyone who goes to see this movie will come out en masse and vote for John Kerry. Clearly the movie makes it clear that George Bush is not fit to be president of this country."
(Dave) Kopel composed a July 1 2004 report titled “Fifty-nine Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11” which brilliantly unmasked the film’s inconsistencies and subtle deceptions. Kopel brilliantly outlined his findings with thorough detail.Of course he didn't. Moore the Leftist propagandist who didn't believe there was a terrorism threat put together for his own profit a collection of lies intended to defeat President Bush in 2004 so a 1960s radical who slandered our soldiers in Vietnam could be elected President and end the war against al-Queda.
I’ve covered some of those and more for those of our readers who haven’t seen the movie--and for those of our reader who have, but didn’t see through the veil of deceit.
Fahrenheit starts out covering the controversial presidential election of 2000, but the first attack on Bush’s actual presidency starts when Moore cites a Washington Post study that falsely accused W of spending 42 percent of his time (before 9/11) on vacation implying that he dropped the ball. According to Kopel, the Post figures failed to include weekends. Long story short: Bush never played hooky nearly as much as the liberal mainstream media would have us believe.
Fahrenheit then moves on to falsely portraying Bush as insensitive for continuing to read a children’s book to a classroom of a Florida elementary school children after being told about the attacks on the World Trade Center.
The Washington Times however reported that although it could not be seen on film, Ari Fleischer was holding a sign to the President from the back of the room that read, “DON’T SAY ANYTHING YET.”
Gwendolyn Rose-Rigell, the principal of Emma E. Booker Elementary School praised Bush’s action in an Associated Press report: “I don’t think anyone could have handled it better,” she said. “What would it have served if he had jumped up and ran out of the room?”
The movie never mentions any of that.
And he almost succeeded, thanks in part to a snake-oil salesman like Terry McAwful, a partisan who hated George W. Bush more than the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11.
A guy who embraces this kind of treasonous celluloid cookery isn't fit to run Virginia, much less a used car lot.
