HOW DARE HE?In a press conference Thursday Bush had the gall to threaten OUR CHILDREN. Speaking about al-Qaida, Bush said
"They are a threat to your children, David," referring to NBC's David Gregory.
The president found this such a useful tool that he used it a second time in the same press conference.
"I would hope our world hasn't become so cynical that they don't take the threats of al-Qaida seriously, because they're real, and it's a danger to the American people," he said in response to a question about the war from Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times. "It's a danger to your children, Jim." (Slate)
To use such SCARE TACTICS the president has sunk to an all-time low. You know when reporters ask politicians about their children and their wrongdoings or their personal life, the are usually admonished that it's none of their business.
Dick Cheney rebuked Wolf Blitzer months ago when he asked about Cheney's daughter becoming a parent. Cheney said, in essence, you're out of line asking.
Well, Mr. Bush, you are completely out of line scaring parents in this country. Scaring your opponents in a debate is the lowest form of persuasion. You should be ashamed.
