The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is using the failed bombing of a Delta jet in a new fundraising email.
After attacking Democrats' plans for healthcare reform in an email to supporters, NRSC Executive Director Rob Jesmer says the failed attack is yet another reason to elect Republicans:
Even more scary was knowing this country was one faulty detonator away from an American airliner being blown out of the sky. Remember right after the inauguration, it was revealed President Obama no longer wanted to acknowledge the "global war on terror" and referred to terrorist acts as "man-made disasters"? Back then you and I knew that showed a remarkable lack of understanding of the threat America faced but in the face of what nearly happened a couple days, it is even more infuriating.
To you and me and our friends throughout America, the healthcare bill is a man-made disaster. And when a foreigner tries to blow up an airliner, it is an attempted terrorist attack.
Now more than ever we need a check in the Senate to stop the radical Obama agenda down until we elect a Republican President in 2012.
The emails comes after Democrats have attacked Republicans for "politicizing" the failed attack.
