2004-05-28 03:13:29 PM  
he's too busy saving us from the terrorists, duh.
2004-05-28 03:13:32 PM  
He was too busy thinking about boobies.

I have officially beaten all the morons to this thread.
2004-05-28 03:14:15 PM  
What a prick.
2004-05-28 03:14:31 PM  
I read the headline as "Ashcroft forgot to mention terror". That would have been a sign of the apocalypse.

The Homeland Security Department doesn't listen to the same little voices that Ashcroft hears.
2004-05-28 03:15:41 PM  
It's like these assholes are trying to out do eachother. Where's my duct tape and saran wrap?
2004-05-28 03:15:55 PM  
"The Homeland Security Department was surprised by the announcement Wednesday by Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller that the sky is falling."
2004-05-28 03:15:56 PM  
Good thing Tom Ridge at least reads the paper. it would have taken days for this to tickle up to GWB...

2004-05-28 03:16:31 PM  
whats this, suddenly became credible??

2004-05-28 03:17:04 PM  
Can't the department just pick up a farkin newspaper like the rest of us do? Jeez, do they want everything spoonfed to them?
2004-05-28 03:17:10 PM  
Well, this means we need better communication between departments.

Create the Department of Central Central Intelligence!!
2004-05-28 03:17:41 PM  
Didn't also lose an election to a dead man.
2004-05-28 03:17:48 PM  
The way i read it, it's not that he did not tell them about the threat, they just did not expect him warn the general public.
2004-05-28 03:17:51 PM  
It's like he gave them a pop quiz. See who's been paying attention.
2004-05-28 03:18:19 PM  
I'm so sick of this WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!! shiat, yet the next day they're all, "nah it's cool"

Bush is the real terrorist.

/flame on!
2004-05-28 03:18:22 PM  
I miss my country. Can we have it back?
2004-05-28 03:18:27 PM  
Good thing we added another layer of bureacracy to make communication easier. Maybe we need another agency to gather and centralized all the press releases?

/sarcasm, as if you couldn't tell
2004-05-28 03:19:03 PM  
Quick show of hands here...
Who actually likes Ashcroft?
There has to be someone...all you people that wanna vote for you like ashcroft?
2004-05-28 03:19:08 PM  
Sounds like Tom Ridge wasn't in on the Roveian disinformation campaign. It's gonna be interesting to see what they come up with when the approval rating sinks under 40%...

/gettin the foil ready

Actually 004-05-28 03:13:32 PM habraham was the last post before morons started to show up.
2004-05-28 03:19:15 PM  
"it would have taken days for this to tickle up to GWB..."

Who is presidential tickler nowadays? Did Elmo get fired?
2004-05-28 03:19:29 PM  
Maybe Ridge missed that prayer meeting.

This is really a wierd day, Maybe it is a sign of end times! The moderators allowed a Republican to be called a "dumbass" in a headline LOL Wow..Small wonders never cease :)
2004-05-28 03:22:10 PM  

Well played!
2004-05-28 03:22:30 PM  
Speaking of morans, I expected D_I_A to show up by now and say it's all because of liberal media bias.

Amazed that people are surprised at things that happen in a Fascist government.

Funny, I was doing a Google search for "Ashcroft fascist", and this is what came up Verrrry interestink.

2004-05-28 03:24:19 PM  
Ridge's membership dues for the Presidential Prayer Team must still have been in the mail...
Or this is payback for not attending Ashcroft's most recent anointment...
2004-05-28 03:24:26 PM  
This hours Bush/GOP bashing article brought to you by
2004-05-28 03:26:32 PM  
Does anyone have a link from another source on this? I am inclined to believe, but I want to see some credible sources on this one.
2004-05-28 03:26:45 PM  
the weird thing is that i have become so numb to the collective bs spewing from this administration that this barely registers on my outrage meter.

only a couple of months left and we can get back to resuming our lives.
2004-05-28 03:26:56 PM  
Asscroft = Asshole
2004-05-28 03:27:08 PM  
Dubya announces Ashcroft if doing a "Superior Job" in 3...2...
2004-05-28 03:28:27 PM  
2004-05-28 03:28:31 PM  
I thought because of all how important 911 was it changed so many things in the government like communication. No it didn't it just made the sheep of america cry for more stupid rules that don't in the slightest protect you. I don't feel more or less secure.
2004-05-28 03:28:57 PM  
Ashcroft is doing a great job you liberal, pinko, commie, fags! He locked up that terrorist, Tommy Chong!
2004-05-28 03:29:07 PM  
We got the info before the Department of Homeland Security???? We're spending how much on this department, and they are surprised about this? I truly don't know what to say...

Obviously Sophistimucated, the Liberal Media is spreading lies in an attempt to manipulate public opinion about these threats and this Administration. There was no real threat, and that's why the Homeland Security folks knew nothing about it. Damn hippie yellow journalist commie tree-hugger bastards. They'll be the deaths of us all.
2004-05-28 03:29:11 PM  
Even if you completely ignore thier policies, this administration is run by a bunch of clowns. This, the prision abuse scandal, the FBI getting that Oregon's lawyer's fingerprints mixed up with the Spanish train bombers (and thinking his son's Spanish homework were "Spanish documents" related to the case-and confiscating them). It's like a freak show-you never know what type of insane thing will happen next.
2004-05-28 03:29:24 PM  
A cynic might think they're just saying it to boost their chances in the election...
2004-05-28 03:29:31 PM  
What, we have here, is failure to communicate.
2004-05-28 03:29:57 PM  
You mean to tell me that Ashcroft would purposefully prune the truth to manupilate the media and rally support for his president by scaring people? Say it aint so!

/Nothing to see here
2004-05-28 03:30:12 PM  
that's because it is a cynical political tactic.
2004-05-28 03:32:46 PM  
I have a question: Why is Iraq mentioned NO WHERE on the Bush campaign's web page? You know, all that good news they keep claiming is out there, you'd think they'd find room to put it on their website.
