thoroughly disgusting

I watched some of NOW with Bill Moyers this morning. I couldn't watch much of it b/c it was just too disgusting. I didn't know that before Bush went in to that Florida elementary school he was told about the first plane. And then, when reading "My Pet Goat" he found out about the second plane, and then sat there for 7 minutes. Yeah, sit there. While everyone I know in the nyc area is freaking out, trying to find their husbands and pick their children up from school. Yeah, sit there. While they shut down the entire nyc highway/public transportation system and phone system and we are all stranded and stuck, wondering when the wounded from the WTC would arrive at our hospitals (they never did) and wondering how people would get home from the city. Yeah, sit there a*#hole. Like the cars that sat for days at LIRR stations because no one was coming back to pick them up. So, I had to turn the show off b/c it clearly made me angry. I have to say this much. It is thoroughly disgusting to me that all Bush has to stand on for re-election is 9.11. Doesn't that sicken anyone else? All he has is a tragedy, and happening to be there for it. I believe fully that not only did they drop the ball on 9.11 (by ignoring warnings and responding on that day totally inadequately), I believe that they dropped the ball on purpose. Because it works for them and they are milking it for all it is worth. They have since been able to rule on people's fears and some inane notion of "fighting a war on terror" and they drag 9.11 up whenever they need people to remember the fear. And let me say to Cheney that the fact we haven't been attacked since 9.11 is your dumb luck. Because all the freakin' billions that you are spending in Iraq is doing nothing to keep us safer at home. So, let me talk to Bush. I have some things I would like to say to him. Better yet, show me someone who is voting for this total f*ck up and I'll have a word or two with them. I just don't understand.
