WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- A new TV ad attacks Republican attempts to use the fifth anniversary of 9/11 to resuscitate the President's popularity and help Republicans hang on to control of Congress.
MoveOn.org Political Action's thirty second spot is planned to begin airing nationwide on cable this week. The ad buy is $100,000.
The ad, "Exploiting 9/11," reminds Americans of the now discredited claims and promises made by the President and Republican leaders in Congress about the connection between 9/11 and Sadaam Hussein; the capture of Osama bin Laden; and making the country safer by invading Iraq.
Want a more recent example? Barney Frank attacks Eric Cantor for politicizing bin Laden's death.
But in the era of CHANGE we have this.
President Obama will travel to New York City on Thursday to visit Ground Zero and meet with families who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001, communications director Dan Pfeiffer said.
It's almost like there are different rules for Democrats and Republicans.
KN: Can I say "I told you so?"
