Bush to blame for 9.11.01??

I'm certainly not the biggest of Bush fans, but I'm surprised this many folks blame Bush for Al Queera's attacks of 9/11. I can't help but think it's more a reflection of people just being angry with him generally, so he may as well be at fault for 9/11, too.

Poll: More Americans blame Bush for 9/11

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington has risen from almost a third to almost half over the past four years, a CNN poll released Monday found.

Asked whether they blame the Bush administration for the attacks, 45 percent said either a "great deal" or a "moderate amount," up from 32 percent in a June 2002 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

But the Clinton administration did not get off lightly either. The latest poll, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation for CNN, found that 41 percent of respondents blamed his administration a "great deal" or a "moderate amount" for the attacks.

That's only slightly less than the 45 percent who blamed his administration in a poll carried out less than a week after the attacks.

Still, most Americans appear to be fatalistic, with more than half -- 57 percent -- saying they think that terrorists will "always find a way to launch attacks no matter what the U.S. government does."

The poll was carried out August 30 through September 2 by Opinion Research Corp. with 1,004 American adults questioned by telephone. The sampling error for the questions was 3 percentage points.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

This is exactly the double standard I was talking about with regards to the Islamofascists' attack on America.

Do you think a similar poll would find a similar "understanding" and scapegoating about the Oklahoma city bombing by McVeigh?

I think not.

A point that I seem to have not been able to get through to Z.

Blaming any individual or administration other than the perps is foolish and unproductive. That said, I do believe that U.S. foreign policy has a history of showing less respect for others than we demand for ourselves.

I suppose it depends on how complicit Bush was, when blame is assessed.
