Moulitsas, Olbermann Agree: 9/11 A ‘Political Opportunity’ For GOP
“9/11 was a “political opportunity” not a disaster for Republicans … “because they were able to take that and use it to stifle their domestic critics, push through a radical agenda, try to silence anybody who opposed him. It essentially won him another term in 2004 based on 9/11 because he wasn’t popular on any other matter. So, for Republicans, even today, 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving. The fact that 3,000 people died is incidental to them. They don’t care about that. What was there was a political opportunity and he took it.”
The GOP doesn’t care about 3000 people who died on 9-11? Really?
