9/11 ads a tragedy in themselves

In what could be the most disgusting action of the year, President George W. Bush proved again, why he does not deserve four more years.

To kick-start his re-election campaign, President Bush authorized a series of commercials portraying him as a “strong leader in times of change.” Strong is probably the right word considering how offensive I found the commercials. 
 
Since there were no WMDs in Iraq, no good news about the economy, a high unemployment rate and no sign of things getting better, Bush chose to celebrate the crowning victory of his four years in office: September 11. 
 
Unforgivable at best, the commercials splice images of the President against those of firefighters and Ground Zero. Evoking 9/11 and the possibility of future attacks, Bush's message is clear — vote for me, y’all, or the “evil-doers” will come and get ya! 
 
George W. Bush must get on his knees and thank God, every day for Sept. 11 — it gave his presidency the direction it needed and temporarily stalled jokes about his pathetic intellect and embarrassing communication skills. 
 
Bled by the Bush Administration for political gain, Sept. 11 now lays drained of its sanctity. Having piggybacked it to death, W. hopes to ride this pony past Kerry in November. 
 
I will not stand for such disrespect of a national tragedy. Neither should you.
