Burning WTC Pictures in new Bush Ad

This needs to go mainstream now.

In a last ditch bid to win Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, where Democratic Sen. John Kerry is leading is most polls, President George W. Bush has engaged in mailings which contain myriad graphic images of the burning World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

They have the images on their site. It’s real. This is the slimiest hit piece they’ve done so far, and that’s saying something.

Remember, Bush promised not to politicize September 11th. They couldn’t be exploiting it more nakedly than this. Let’s nail them.

    In all their hideous glory.

    BTW, it’s a flier, not a TV commercial. Just FYI.

      Good freakin’ grief!

      Could they fit any more photos of the burning towers in that flyer?! That’s disgusting.

    I just saw an ad from the Bush Campaign that uses a speech of Bush, where he almost cracks and looks as if he would start to cry. That is supposed to make him look as a human, compassionate and sensitive man. He was truely overwhelmed at that time over the 9/11 events and he saluted the troops etc. It’s just shameful to use that videoclip today for campaign purposes.

    What is so disgusting is that the people, who make and use the ads, use the rare video clips of Bush, that show true emotions (instead of fake ones) to abuse the American people on the emotional level.

    There is no shame and no limit in the US to use any intimite emotional touching film clip for any political or economic purpose.

    Americans have sold themselves out completely to the professional advertiser industry to allow them to mislead the viewers with fake emotions.

    I guess the real consequence of all this is that many people become completely unable to rely and show true emotions at all.

    For free speech, against free lies.
