Obama Smacks Down McCain's 9-11 rhetoric

"Well I refuse to be lectured on national security by people who are responsible for the most disastrous set of foreign policy decisions in the recent history of the United States. The other side likes to use 9/11 as a political bludgeon. Well, let’s talk about 9/11."

Damn. And there's lots more.

Guess what, guys? 9-11 9-11 9-11 ain't gonna work this time. You played that card too much... it's old. And it reflects badly on you, if someone is smart enough to make the argument against it.

Thanks for sharing that.

Two things that concern me about the 9-11 rhetoric:

1) A voting public that is used to pundits and other "experts" interpreting the facts as opposed to researching source documents themselves. There is nothing like out-of-context quoting to make everyone look bad.

2) A voting public motivated by fear. It is frightening how often it works.
