Mr. President, Don?t Stop Reminding Us About 9/11

On September 14, 2001 George W. Bush arrived at Ground Zero and visited with the rescue workers. It was a defining moment of his presidency. Amid cheers from the firefighters and rescue workers President Bush climbed on top of a heavily damaged fire truck, megaphone in hand he addressed the crowd. ?I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. The people who knocked down this building will hear all of us soon.? The chants of USA, USA, USA, from the workers drowned out the President.

It’s now an election year and the Democrats are whining about George W. Bush’s use of 9/11 images in his political advertisements. On Friday, the morning news shows presented several 9/11 victim’s families. They were expressing their outrage that George W. Bush had the nerve to include 9/11 images in his advertisements. It was interesting to me that, where ever these families appeared, the “talking points” coming from them and the media echo chamber were, word for word, the same. In each appearance, it was apparent that they had been prepared and coached for the exact moment that George W. Bush used 9/11 as a focal point of his campaign. It was no coincidence. 

I expect the President to include 9/11 images in his advertisements. It is important for us as a Nation to never forget what happened that day. In this time of peril it appears the Democrats are working hard to undermine the President’s effort to go after those who would do us harm.

Thomas Jefferson said, “A nation, while it holds together, is strong against its enemies, but, breaking into parts, it is easily destroyed.” 

Is it the goal of the Democrats to allow our Nation to be destroyed?

Thomas Jefferson also said, “Should foreign nations… deceived by [an] appearance of division and weakness, render it necessary to vindicate by arms the injuries to our country, I believe… that the spirit of the revolution is un-extinguished, and that the cultivators of peace will again, as on that occasion, be transformed at once into a nation of warriors who will leave us nothing to fear for the natural and national rights of our country.”

Our nation under the leadership of our President, George W. Bush has reacted exactly as Jefferson expected. 9/11 is a defining moment for our nation. We should be united, everyone of us!

How is it that the Democrats want to divide our nation for political gain? To me their behavior borders on sedition and at worse, treason.

This is the time that we need to put aside political differences and unite behind our Commander in Chief. Our nation’s survival depends on it.
