The Neo-cons continue the “vote Democrat equals terror attack” bullshit. This shows their desperation.

Yesterday, on John Gibson’s ONLY show now (his radio show; his TV show on FOX News was canceled), he hosted former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton. The two warmongering Neo-cons were discussing Barack Obama’s foreign policies and how he would handle terror if elected President.
Bolton repeated the same old tired, bullshit rhetoric that has been spewed by every Neo-con on radio or TV in the last 7 years; that Democrats will be weak on terror and allow more terrorist attacks.
Here’s the dialogue and audio:
GIBSON: The Obama team is going back to some of the old complaints about the war and the war on terror…that the left has been articulating for a long time now, and not really coming up with anything new.
BOLTON: Yeah I think honestly that’s an optimistic view of it, that it will simply be a replay of the Clinton administration. It will simply have more embassy bombings, more bombings of our warships like the Cole, more World Trade Center attacks. That would be the best outcome from that perspective.
Someone might want to remind Bolton who was in office on September 11, 2001. He seems to have forgotten. Oh, and yes, he also seems to have forgotten who was the Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security ON September 11, 2001……..uh….JOHN BOLTON!!!!
What is interesting is how Bolton and John “the albino” Gibson leave out that Clinton (although he is just another corrupt global elitist like Bush) actually was pro-active and DID things to stop foreign terrorists BEFOREHAND. Clinton signed Presidential Decision Directive 39 in 1995, which instructed the CIA to capture foreign terrorists by force, even without their host governments’ involvement.
Clinton’s CIA also created a unit whose code name was “Alec Station” whose main purpose was to capture Bin Laden.
Then, in 1998, Clinton created the office of national coordinator for counterterrorism and hired Richard Clarke as its head.
It has been under the Bush administration that absolutely NOTHING has been done in the fight to defeat terrorism, unless you would like to count reducing the freedoms of law-abiding Americans and attacking countries that were NO THREAT whatsoever to the United States as “doing something about terror”.
In the months leading up to 9-11, at no other time in our nations’ history was the terror alert as high as it was in June-September 2001, and what did Bush do to address this? Vacationed the ENTIRE MONTH of August 2001 at his ranch in Crawford, Texas (even IGNORING a Presidential Daily Briefing on August 6, 2001 titled, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike IN U.S.”)
And who can forget the DAY of 9-11 when Bush knew America was under attack? Of course Bush (being the great terrorism destroyer he is) got right up from his seat in the Florida classroom and handled the “terr-ists”, right? Of course not. He sat on his ass and later told people “I didn’t want the panic the kids”, although he never explained how the kids would have been panicked since they didn’t know planes even hit the towers!
Unless Barack Obama’s foreign policy is to ignore 3 or 4 Presidential Daily Briefings that have titles like, “Bin Laden will blow up the White House TODAY” or he plans to sit on his ass for 35 minutes straight while reading to kids as the entire United States is on fire, then he cannot, I repeat, CANNOT possibly be any worse than the worst President in United States history…George W Bush.
Bolton also conveniently fails to mention the scores of Neo-cons who have hoped and prayed for more terrorist attacks in the past 2 years (who ALL just happen to be Republicans); Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Donald Rumsfeld, Michael Reagan and Dennis Milligan, to name just a few.
The “Democrats will cause more terror/Republicans will save you from terror” bullshit is getting tiresome, FAST. There are only two classes of people in Washington, and it’s not Democrats/Republicans. There are those who want to protect the Constitution and those who want to destroy it.
I think we can all take a lucky guess at what group the FOX News fucktards are in.
