NRC in New York City

Do you think that it was ethical for the National Republican Convention to have been held in Manhattan? Conservatives say that doing this was a symbolic act of growth and patriotism. However, estimated security costs for the convention were about $76 million dollars. New York City public schools are starting late. Manhattan is known for being a liberal area and holding a convention in an area where democrats raise money asking “How would you like to help beat Bush?” is just asking for more trouble than their would typically be. Personally, I do not think that holding the convention in Manhattan was helpful in ‘getting the city back on its feet’.

It’s also interesting that here in Manhattan, where many were directly effected by the 9/11 attacks, it is rare to find a Bush supporter. The people I know who were actually in the attacks feel that he is the worst candidate in the election.
