Bin Laden's Remarks, a la Michael Moore

Posted by Matt aka Bear
From an open letter from Michael Moore, on his own website.
To George W.:

I know it's gotta be rough for you right now. Hey, we've all
been there. "You're fired" are two horrible words when put together in
that order. Bin Laden surfacing this weekend to remind the American
people of your total and complete failure to capture him was a cruel
trick or treat. But there he was. 3,000 people were killed and he's
laughing in your face. Why did you stop our Special Forces from going
after him? Why did you forget about bin Laden on the DAY AFTER 9/11
and tell your terrorism czar to concentrate on Iraq instead?
There he was, OBL, all tan and rested and on videotape (hey,
did you get the feeling that he had a bootleg of my movie? Are there
DVD players in those caves in Afghanistan?)
Speaking of my movie – can I ask you a personal question
before we part ways for good on Tuesday? Why did you and your friends
fund SIX "documentaries" trashing me -- but only ONE film against
Kerry? C'mon, he was the candidate, not me. What a waste of your time
and resources! Sure, I know what your pollsters told you, that the
film had convinced some people to vote you out. I just want you to
know that that was not my original intent. Funny things happen at the
movies. Hope you get to see a few at the multiplex in Waco. It's a
great way to relax.

Yesterday I was talking with my wife about something that really
surprises me. The way those in the Anybody But Bush crowd will side
with anybody who hates Bush. A gay brother-in-law emailed recommending
an anti-Bush emminen video. This was the start of the surprise, since
emminem is almost as famous for his misogynist raps as he is for his
gay-bashing. Apparently necessity does makes strange bed fellows when
homosexuals will side with the homophobe.

Over the weekend, Ossama bin Laden came out with a video of his own,
that seemed to come straight from the democratic party talking points.
"Bush is a failure...the war is for oil...he stole the election from
Gore..." I wondered how the angry left felt about having Americas #1
enemy taking their side. Spoke with my wife about those thoughts...then
this morning I saw Moore's snide remarks.
Today, after seeing Moore's response, I am amazed, and sickened.
Just to remind people, Moore had a prime seat at the Dem convention,
right next to former President Carter. He is a left-wing
America-hating conspiracy-nut, but has been embraced by the party
since he turned in his "crock-umentary".
It seems that those against Bush will sink to whatever depth they
need to to defeat Bush. Many were sad at the capture of Sadam, because
it was a political advantage for Bush:

(scroll down about half way)

There is something very wrong with prefering American defeat to a
Bush victory. (Yes...all you war protesters are right...it is possible to
want an American victory and a Bush defeat...you're not unpatriotic.) But for those who
side with Americas enemies, there is no excuse. Here's a question...If bin Laden had been captured yesterday (ignoring the cries of conspiracy), would you have been happy? I have
a feeling that Moore wouldn't have been.

Great article. Best one yet. My wife and I were also discussing the turn of events, now that it's official that the Republicans are continuing to sweep everything. The truth is, the democratic party will continue to hurt as long as it runs on a platform that supports overly radical view points. So many middle of the road Americans that could possibly be sympathetic to the Dems wont be because they see people like Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, and Al Gore playing a prominent role in the party.
I think that Americans saw this election not as being based on the war or the economy, but on a way of life. Americans just aren't ready to move as far left as the Democratic Party is willing to support. There's a lot of people today that cared about nothing except "beating Bush"...Im sure they're having a rough morning.

I agree completely I heard the other day a talk radio show that asked the question why the democratic party was doing so much negative campaigning and the response was interesting. It came down to the fact that the Democrats are having a rough time believing that the majority of America(as proven today) is more conservative then liberal. Americans just like conservatism, so in order to persuade Americans toward the liberal side they had to attack Bush in every way possible to show that being conservative was not popular or right. I am glad for the nation and personally that people saw above this outragous attack and saw the moral necesity of having a strong leader like Bush in office.
