Bush keeps pissing off the WRONG people 

It's a rare talent he has. From the hill, via blah3.com:


Firefighters to go after Bush 'loudly and aggressively'

By Klaus Marre

When, in the future, the Bush campaign is “using firefighters for their photo op,” the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) “will loudly and aggressively” make known the administration’s cuts to federal funds for first responders, Harold Schaitberger, the group’s general president, told The Hill.

Schaitberger, responding to a controversial campaign ad featuring fire fighters, said President Bush has “the right to focus on his performance and leadership during a catastrophic and disastrous day.”

But he added that the use of images in the ad, “by any candidate, for any reason, is unacceptable,” especially for “partisan, purely political reasons.”

...

Schaitberger said the administration had “failed the profession,” and he listed initiatives for first responders that the administration cut, including programs to add staff and equipment to firehouses.

The IAFF has called on Bush to apologize for including the images in his ad campaign and to pull it from the air. Schaitberger said a delegation of local firefighters submitted a resolution passed on the issue to Bush’s campaign headquarters, but was left waiting for 45 minutes and departed without meeting any campaign officials.


ha ha

Bush promises them "Help is on the way" and promptly vetoes the package to help them? What the fuck do those fire fighters EXPECT Bush to do--

--keep his word?

Even I know better than that. It doesn't take more than a few kicks in the head for me to get the message.
