The better ad:
George Bush claims he talks straight and you always know where he stands. Really?
On Sept. 13, 2001, George Bush made this promise:
Video: "The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
But only 6 months later, as he prepared to invade Iraq, he changed his mind about Bin Laden:
Video: "I don't know where he is. I, ah [laugh] I repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."
3,000 Americans dead, planned by Bin Laden, and Bush is "truly not that concerned."?
This has to be the biggest flip-flop of all time.
Do you really trust this man to keep us safe?
Its time for a change. America deserves better leadership.
