politics, Kerry Edwards

something I want to hear someone say during the campaign

I really don't understand why the Democrats aren't pounding on the fact that the right-wing bluster about how they'll keep us safer is so much bullshit, because 9.11 happened on the Republicans' watch. I was very glad to hear Senator Biden last night point out that the fighting in Afghanistan was the actual response to 9.11 and Iraq has nothing to do with it. We're coming up on seven years since we were attacked by al-Qaeda and President Bush declared Osama bin Laden public enemy #1. Speaking as a resident of the city that bore the brunt of that attack, I'm wondering what the fuck happened.

I also wish Senator Clinton had been more explicit in pointing out that the last time a Democrat was in the White House we had peace and prosperity......
