Terrorists in White House???

Like any politician in a high stakes race, Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan may want to start screening the people who appear on stage on him. Or, at the very least, have a campaign staffer preview their speech.

Duncan (D) held an event a senior center in Wheaton today to announce Montgomery County is suing the federal government so county residents can import drugs from Canada. After Duncan, Bruce Dunton, president of the Alliance for Retired Americans for Montgomery County and District of Columbia, took the stage and began criticizing the Bush administration

"We got to get some terrorists removed from the White House, that is what we are going to do, because that is where they are," Dunton said. "They are denying us the drugs we are entitled to have so we can live a decent life."

Duncan didn't immediately respond to Dunton's remarks. A few minutes later, a reporter asked Duncan if he agreed with such statements. Duncan started saying no, but Dunton interrupted him.

"He doesn't have to agree with me but that is what I believe," Dunton said. "We got all this money going to beating terrorists and they are working against us on every program I grew up" with.

Duncan then said, "We are together on prescription drugs and we are apart on this. We are working together with the White House, the Congress and the state to protect our country."
