In his first campaign commercial, George Bush reached down and molested
But this only in keeping with both Bushes. George Bush, Sr., had the
badge of officer Eddie Byrne, who was gunned down in South Jamaica, and
he stood up at Christ the King High School in Middle Village and held it
up and said he would have this badge on him forever. Some chance. Bush
then led high school girls into insane cheers for the death penalty.
Now, right off, this second George Bush came up with the badge of a Port
Authority cop, George Howard, who died. He was from Hicksville. His
mother gave Bush the son's badge. When Bush came back to the trade
center a year later, he reached into his pocket and whipped out that
badge and he had a tear in his eye. What makes it worse is that this
George W. Bush acts like he's entitled to treat the remains of a dead
man like a souvenir. Now he shows a commercial with dead bodies, or body
parts, covered with an American flag being taken through the smoke and
flames of the world trade center attack. It caused people who had lost
family members in the attack to complain about using the dead or parts
thereof being used for a politician's gain.
"Bush is afraid to let us see the dead being brought back from Iraq,"
one fire fighter said yesterday.
