Of this pure fear-mongering quote from Sen. McAmnesty senior adviser, Charlie Black is, “Is he right?”. Let’s be honest here, fear-mongering works for both sides of our One Party system. And the Republicans hold the “terrorist threat” corner of it, and the Democrats hold the corner with “they are going to take money from the blue hairs”. So would a “terrorist attack” help Republicans? Well, it certainly wouldn’t hurt them. Let’s see, the Fear-Worshipers (Big Government folks) would love it, the “Security Moms” would love it, and of course it would help with the budgets of our wonderful, loving, caring Jack-Booted Thugs, i.e Law Enforcement.
(CNN) — Charlie Black, a senior adviser to John McCain, said Monday he “deeply regrets” his comments to Fortune Magazine suggesting a terrorist attack on the United States would benefit the Arizona senator’s presidential campaign.
In the Fortune Magazine interview, posted on the magazine’s Web site Monday, Black said that the Arizona senator demonstrated his fluency in foreign policy and security matters following the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December of last year.
Asked if McCain would stand to benefit from a terrorist attack on U.S. soil, Black answered: “Certainly it would be a big advantage to him.”
That’s a honest statement folks. Really. There are people out there, that believe that a “terrorist attack” would benefit the Almighty Republican Party. Back after the election of the Democrats in 2006, Ex-Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld said “having voted the Democrats back into Congressional power, could benefit from suffering another terrorist attack. And then we have this from Sen. Clinton(defacto Repub) “But, if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world.”
Then of course over the weekend, Mr.Neo-Con, dual citizenship himself, Bill Kristol had this to say “President Bush is more likely to attack Iran if he thinks Senator Barack Obama may be elected, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol told FOX News Sunday morning.”
