TEHRAN, Iran - The head of Iran’s security council said Tuesday that the re-election of President Bush was in Tehran’s best interests, despite the administration’s axis of evil label, accusations that Iran harbors al-Qaida terrorists and threats of sanctions over the country’s nuclear ambitions.
Historically, Democrats have harmed Iran more than Republicans, said Hasan Rowhani, head of the Supreme National Security Council, Iran’s top security decision-making body.
“We haven’t seen anything good from Democrats,” Rowhani told state-run television in remarks that, for the first time in recent decades, saw Iran openly supporting one U.S. presidential candidate over another.
Though Iran generally does not publicly wade into U.S. presidential politics, it has a history of preferring Republicans over Democrats, who tend to press human rights issues.
Bush has NOTHING POSITIVE to run on, his record as president absolutely stinks, so he has to resort to the fear card. So ironically, the president’s greatest failure (9-11) is also the biggest asset to his election campaign. Calling Kerry weak on defense is a hoot when 3000 Americans died on US soil on Bush’s watch.
“Bush, Kerry Trade Barbs in Pennsylvania, Ohio”
President Bush started the day in Pennsylvania, a state he has visited 41 times since taking office.
This morning he spoke in a hockey arena in Wilkes Barre.
“Just seems like yesterday I was here in Wilkes Barre. But come to think of it, I was.”
But that folksy greeting quickly gave way to a speech that contained a sustained assault on John Kerry, portraying the Democrat as a man who won’t do what is necessary to protect the nation.
Before the president took the stage, images from the World Trade Center wreckage played on the arena’s giant TV screens. http://www.npr.org/rundowns/rundown.php?prgDate=22-Oct-2004&prgId=2
IT TAKES COURAGE TO LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY. People who vote based on their “fears” may want to do a gut-check before heading to the polls.
