Olbermann & Daily Kos Founder Agree: Republicans Saw 3,000 Deaths on 9/11 as 'Political Opportunity

"...for Republicans, even today, 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving."

During a recent segment on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas launched into Republicans and President George W. Bush when he asserted that 9/11 was a "political opportunity," not a tragedy for Republicans.

The reason, according to Moulitsas, is "because they were able to take that and use it to stifle their domestic critics, push through a radical agenda, try to silence anybody who opposed him [Bush]."

"It essentially won him another term in 2004 based on 9/11 because he wasn't popular on any other matter. So, for Republicans, even today, 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving. The fact that 3,000 people died is incidental to them. They don't care about that. What was there was a political opportunity and he took it."
