    911, 911, 911, Iraq war resolution, 911, 911, 911. Using emotion to push through legislation is not new. Bush's willingness to exploit the raw emotion of 911 to march us into an unnecessary war is possibly the best example ever of how effect that strategy can be. The difference here is Bush had the defense lobby in his corner. There was lots of money to be made. Mr. Obama did not have that advantage. The will of the people has been supplanted by the demands of the corporate state. That is what Dowd fails to see.
