The White House Response

The White House has responded to all of the attention that the Democratic ticket of Kerry and Edwards has been receiving this week:

WASHINGTON – The United States is tightening security in the face of a steady stream of intelligence indicating al-Qaida may seek to mount an attack aimed at disrupting elections, the White House said.

The Department of Homeland Security is addressing the threat and has efforts under way to “ramp up security,” White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Thursday.

It’s a tried and true strategy, and we can expect the White House to continue using it until election day.
