This is scary. It looks like Bush plans to leverage September 11th as a campaign re-election tool. *shudder*
From that same article, this bothers me.
"For example, when the Democrat that many of Mr. Bush's advisers see as the most likely to win the nomination, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, said in New Hampshire that it was time for a 'regime change' in the United States, Republican organizations orchestrated attacks on Mr. Kerry. That forced Mr. Kerry to explain his remarks for a week.
"In assessing Mr. Bush's potential opponents, Mr. Bush's advisers said Mr. Kerry could be presented as ideologically and culturally out of step, both because of his liberal positions on some issues as well as his Boston lineage and what some Bush advisers described as his haughty air.
"Marc Racicot, the Republican national chairman, said recently that Mr. Kerry 'is going to have a hard time translating out of New England.' Another Bush adviser said of Mr. Kerry, 'He looks French.'"
...stupid republicans using "He looks French." as an *insult*. *sigh* And the Republicans say the *Democrats* are politically motivated :P
