The lying filth are doing what I predicted...

I told you this lie was coming!

"The Republicans chose to hold their convention here, I think most of us believe, to continue the political exploitation of 9/11, which this administration started almost immediately after 9/11," said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, whose congressional district in Manhattan includes the site where the World Trade Center once stood.

"They want to wrap themselves in 9/11 and wrap themselves in the flag. But the fact of the matter is they don't have the right to do that."

On February 21 I wrote
Be prepared. Keep this up your sleeve to answer the LIE that our Democrat pals are going to be spreading...In fact already are spreading: That the GOP Convention in New York was scheduled to take cynical political advantage of 9/11.
Go to that post to get the truth.

Or, the short version: Mayor Bloomberg asked BOTH parties to hold their conventions in NY, to help its economy and show support.

Republicans said sure, we'll help out, and dropped the convention plans they had already made.

Democrats said: Republicans got cooties, we're going to Boston...

Thanks to Katie, a New Yorker, who writes:

..So basically, the Dems said, "We want to be the only ones to exploit 9/11 and if we can't, we'll go to Boston and exploit a misbegotton conflict that ended roughly 30 years ago." This does not strike me as the fault of the GOP.
