Frist loses Campaign funds to stock market... can you say dumb ass?
Dear President W, if your own Senate Majority Leader can't invest properly, what the fuck do you think the American people are going to do with their Social Security privatized investments?
You dumbshit... both of you...
Link: Frist's finances questioned.
Election Day 2000 was five months off, but Bill Frist was already in an enviable position. With a fat campaign war chest and only token opposition in what he had decided was his last race for the U.S. Senate, Frist could turn his attention to grander plans.
Frist began focusing on raising record amounts of cash for other Republicans. But while he was picking up political IOUs that could aid him greatly in a run for president in 2008, his own campaign finances took a sharp, and in some ways baffling, turn for the worse.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars Frist's supporters had given him to run for the Senate were dwindling at a rapid rate. Much of that money was lost in a stock market investment that experts say was out of line with the way candidates traditionally invest campaign funds. Frist's campaign also took on more than $1 million in debt so that it could repay Frist for interest-free loans he made to his campaign six years earlier.

Remember this: McCain
Wrapping up a campaign shadowed by war and terrorism, President Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry unabashedly sought political advantage Saturday from Osama bin Laden's re-emergence."It's very helpful to the president," contended Bush ally Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., although the president didn't mention the menacing new message from bin Laden at his first campaign stops on a four-state, 14-hour swing.
Like Giuliani's "blame it on the troops" statement, this ranks as yet another despicable and pathetic assertion from the GOP.
Our armed forces are dying trying to capture "terrorists". And, to hear a "hero" like John McCain say something as rabidly disgusting as "it's very helpful to the president" when bin Laden comes across the screen, clearly alive (and making videos), well... it's awful. Simply awful.
When John McCain wants to run for President in 2008, he turned a terror message from a mass murderer to the American people in to something that is "good for the president".
McCain feels "it's helpful" that bin Laden is alive and terrorizing America.

Remember this: Giuliani
"No matter how you try to blame it on the president, the actual responsibility for it really would be for the troops that were there. Did they search carefully enough? Didn't they search carefully enough?”
First of all, that's despicable. Plain and simple.
There are men and women that are patrolling the streets that had started as mine sweepers. They weren't trained for policing a hostile nation, but they have to because there aren't enough of them there. And, to hear a "hero" like Rudi Giuliani say this disgusting statement on the Today Show this morning was simply sickening.
Secondly, and more importantly, remember this.
When Rudi runs for Senate in New York, or worse for President in '08, remember his lack of patriotism and support for our young men and women.
The same men and women he stands in front of daily shilling for Bush/Cheney.
Remember that Rudi blames the troops.
