Who Is Exploiting 9/11?

Just days ago when the Iranian President sought permission to visit Ground Zero and was rejected, everyone cried foul. They said that he would use it as a photo op, and basically said he was exploiting the tragedy of 9/11.

Who is the one really exploiting 9/11? Rudy Giuliani, although he claims that he had no idea what was taking place. Sure Rudy!! We believe you!! NOT!!

Backer of Giuliani hosts '$9.11 for Rudy' fundraiser

WASHINGTON (AP) — The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Chris Dodd said Tuesday a fundraising party for Republican Rudy Giuliani seeking $9.11 each from guests exploits the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks for political purposes.

The Dodd campaign called on Giuliani to refuse the money raised at the event, saying the theme "is absolutely unconscionable, shameless and sickening." A Giuliani spokeswoman said the $9.11 idea was selected without the campaign's knowledge.

"Mr. Giuliani was quick to express much vitriol for the independent ad created by MoveOn.org last week; we would hope he would express the same kind of outrage and indignation about this group that he is the beneficiary of," Colleen Flanagan, a spokeswoman for Dodd, said in a statement released by his campaign.

Giuliani and other GOP presidential candidates strongly criticized the liberal, anti-war group MoveOn.org for a full-page advertisement the group bought in The New York Times. The ad included the headline "General Petraeus or General Betray Us?," a reference to Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq.

The Dodd campaign also said Giuliani "should reject and/or return any money raised" through the party, which is to be held Wednesday night at the home of Abraham Sofaer in Palo Alto, California. Giuliani's campaign is sponsoring house parties across the country that night for the candidate's backers.

Sofaer said he had nothing to do with the decision to ask for the $9.11.

"There are some young people who came up with it," Sofaer said when reached by telephone Monday evening. He referred other questions to Giuliani's campaign.

"I'm just providing support for him. He's an old friend of mine," Sofaer said of Giuliani.

Sofaer was a State Department adviser under President Reagan and is a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. Federal election data indicates Sofaer has given nearly $50,000 to Republican causes and candidates, including Giuliani, since 1995.

Giuliani spokeswoman Maria Comella said: "These are two volunteers who acted independently of and without the knowledge of the campaign. Their decision to ask individuals for that amount was an unfortunate choice."

According to the invitation, "$9.11 for Rudy" is an "independent, non-denominational grass-roots campaign to raise $10,000 in small increments to show how many individual, everyday Americans support 'America's Mayor."'

Giuliani was mayor of New York during the Sept. 11 attacks.

Every single time you turn around, this thug is exploiting 9/11 for his own political gain. He makes me sick!!

I don't believe for one second that Giuliani or any of his people had no clue that this was happening. How could they not know? Instead of owning up to what's going on, they're blaming it on two "volunteers who acted independently of and without knowledge of the campaign." Yeah, sure they did!! I know!! Let's find a scapegoat or two instead of being a man and saying I did it!! Typical RePUKElican behavior!!

If he attends this party, he's a pig!! If he attends this party and accepts the money, he's a disgusting, low-life son of a bitch. And that doesn't even begin to describe him.

This pig is not "America's Mayor". He's yet another sick motherfucker who doesn't give a damn about those who died on 9/11. He CHOOSES to exploit their deaths for his own sick, selfish, political opportunities.

Anyone who votes for this piece of shit will be spitting on the graves of those who died. You will be slapping their families in the face. And you'll be every bit the piece of shit that he is!!

    "What would you like, sir?"
    "I believe I'll start off with the flaming jumper steak and...the collapsed potatoes. And a salad."
    "And your dressing, sir?"
    "Hmm. A nice vinaigrette. Something carcinogenic."

    Imagine if a Democrat had did this. Wall-to-wall coverage day and night. "Why does Hillary hate the dead heroes of 9/11?!!?!?!!??! Can we go to a commercial? I have to wipe the faux foam of anger from my face. I'm Glenn Beck and we'll be right back."

    I just do not understand how this guy is the Republican candidate front runner. He is pure scum to me, and yes, every chance he gets he is Mr. 9/11 and did the least of all involved.

    Let's Talk, I totally agree!!

    I can understand why he's the frontrunner for the Republican nomination. It's simple really!! All of the RePUKElicans exploit 9/11 for their own selfish reasons. He's no different, although he seems to exploit it far more than some. He's right up there with Bush's exploitation of 9/11.

    Yes, he is certainly pure scum!! Wait, that's an insult to scum!!

    You make a very good point about most Republicans, now that you made me think, I concur with your statement.
