Sometimes I don't get Democrats.

So Cheney gets up there and basically says, "If you elect John Kerry we're going to be attacked by terrorists." (What he actually said was more vague, closer to "If this country makes the wrong decision in November, we're more likely to be attacked by terrorists", but what he meant was pretty clear.) And today the Republican party is having a field day with our dead, capitalizing off the 9/11 tragedy and waving it around like a banner for their election campaign. This is just flat-out nauseating in and of itself, but what I really don't understand is why some Democrats don't get up there and simply say, "This happened on your watch. This administration failed to defend America from Al-Qaeda, and continues to do so. Osama bin Laden is still at large, the 9/11 tragedy occurred while on the Republican watch, and if Bush hadn't been asleep at the wheel over 3,000 Americans would still be alive today."

I don't get it. I just don't get it.
