Heightened Terror Alert

Here we go again. Excuse me while I shit my pants and hide under the bed.

U.S. Headed for 'Heightened Alert' Stage

It worked like a charm in 2004.

I see that Tom Ridge will be touring PA with John McCain on Monday. Someone told me that the real reason that Ridge resigned as DHS Secretary is that he is color blind and the terror alert system turned his life into a living hell.

People won't fall for it this time; although foreign policy is a major issue it is not going to be "the" major issue of the campaign unless, God forbid, there actually is an attack. Then one could argue that McCain will walk away with the election. God Bless.

But do you disagree with the reasoning behind the supposed threat level increase? The linked article noted several major events scheduled, which could be draws for terrorist attacks; is that simply wrong?

George Bush won re-election because a majority of the voters thought he was doing a decent job, and the Democrats nominated a really lousy candidate -- the latter with which I doubt you'd disagree. The terror alerts really had little to do with it.

I will predict something else that will happen before election o8. Their will be a released audio message from OSBL. Let's see if McCain gets a bump after that.

Looks like the link has changed. Here's a link to what I think is the same story:

(No, that's not a RickRoll.)

But I'm not sure how well the Repugs will do this time without Abu Musab al-Zarqawi helpfully cutting off people's heads every few months during the campaign, maintaining a constant level of fear and reinforcing the belief that the only people who could get us out of this situation were the very same people who had gotten us into it.

"weeks", I meant, not "months."

Are you people serious ??? You bitch when the government does something and you bitch when the government does nothing. I know the terror alert system is a big f'ing joke to you all, but don't insinuate that it's being done because of the elections and to give McCain a bump.

Bush won because Kerry sucked ... PERIOD

Gort I'm shocked that you would think this. You silly Democrat.

Do any of you know what the different alert levels mean ??? This has nothing to do with us. This is strictly for law enforcement...yuck it up because it's useful.

NEPAConseravtive said...

D.B. Echo perhaps you should google what your precious Democrats were saying prior to George Bush.

That's the problem with you liberals, only want to take credit on Monday morning if it worked.

Deny it, but Democrats can't run from their own recorded words.

It's bullshit. (Oh forgive me, Father).

I have a better terror system advisory right here.

Also not a rickroll, but I could probably sneak it in without anyone knowing.
