Fire Fighters President: New Bush Ads Smack of Political Opportunism

The General President of the International Association of Fire Fighters has issued a statement about the new Bush-Cheney 2004 ads that says, in part:

I'm disappointed but not surprised that the President would try to trade on the heroism of those fire fighters in the September 11 attacks. The use of 9/11 images are hypocrisy at its worst. Here's a President that initially opposed the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and now uses its first anniversary as cause to promote his re-election. Here is a President that proposed two budgets with no funding for FIRE Act grants and still plays on the image of America's bravest. His advertisements are disgraceful.
