I voted this morning. Since I have been in Saint Charles, Il. This was the most number of people I have seen before the polls open at 6:00 a.m. My vote was not influenced by what Bin Landen said. I voted on what I believe was the best for the USA and how it could effect both of my sons. I have never voted for someone I really like. I have always voted for the lesser of two evils. No one thinks 100% like I do and I thank God for that. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

I guess I should rephrase...I don't mean to ask if you were influenced by what Bin Laden said (although that too is a very important question)...but rather, does it seem to you (based on the above quotes) that Bin Laden wants Bush out of office? If so, why?

Also, I'm not trying to make this to be a Dick Cheney "if you don't vote for Bush, there's gonna be more attacks" kind of thing (which I believed to be one of the most wrong/false/evil statements one could ever make).

Just to quote you, but maybe leave out a few extraneous words:

Dick Cheney...[is] I believed...the most wrong/false/evil...ever [GOD BLESS AMERICA]

This is how BushCo won the election. That and a little voter fraud in key counties.

Yeah yeah, I know. I didn't mean it to be a Dick Cheney-esque thing - I meant it to be an independent observation that it seemed like Bin Laden was taking a very biased view - and it was against G-Dub, not just American in general.

I know this is an old post but I couldn't resist answering your question.

"you would think that Bin Laden would want Bush to stay in office for as long as possible. If Bin Laden feels so confident about controlling Bush then why diss him on the eve of the election?"

Think about it--Bin Laden (whatever else he may be) is no idiot. He and other members of his organization are pretty savvy about U.S. politics and in fact most people in the world are more savvy of U.S. politics than we are of there's.

So three days before the election he, the most hated man in America, comes on TV and very carefully stops just short of endorsing Kerry. What he was doing is called 'reverse psychology.' Cui bono? Bush Bono. Do you really think he didn't know that?
