The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail: "One commercial begins with Mr. Bush strolling toward the camera. A moment later, the wreckage of the World Trade Center appears on the TV screen, followed by firefighters and grieving victims.

Then come some U.S. flags, and the motto: 'Safer. Stronger. President Bush: Steady Leadership in Times of Change.'
The juxtaposition drew angry responses from several groups connected to relatives of victims of the attacks.

'I find it offensive that he has used 9/11 as a pretext for the election,' said Colleen Kelly, whose brother, Bill Kelly Jr., died in the World Trade Center and who has become a leader of the victims' movement. For her, '9/11 was a failure of this President to act.'"

Ahh, come on, as a U.S. citizen I paid good money for that aircraft carrier landing, surely they won't miss out shouting 'Mission Accoplished" from the rooftops. After all, we caught the guy that started the war.
