You like to totally discount anything and everything that G.W. Bush has accomplished. Sure, mistakes were made, but overall I think he did an pretty dam good job considering no one has EVER faced a threat like he faced.I mean c'mon, terrorists TOTALLY destroyed on of our main financial trading hubs and yet he managed to keep us not only out of a depression but the economy wasn't even really hurt at all. ( of course, he had nothing to do with that I'm sure.)
If he was such a terrible President and "War monger" as the libs like to tag him with , Then I guess FDR, Truman, Kennedy, LBJ, and Clinton are also on the War Monger list....
FDR led us into World War II
Germany never attacked us ; Japan did
From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost .
an average of 112,500 per year.
Truman finished that war and started one in Korea
North Korea never attacked us .
From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost .
an average of 18,334 per year.
John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.
Vietnam never attacked us.
Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.From 1965-1975,
58,000 lives were lost .. an average of 5,800 per year.
Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN
or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us .
He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three
times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on
In the years since terrorists attacked us ,
President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the
crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya , Iran , and,
North Korea, captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.
It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno
to take the Branch Davidian compound.
That was a 51-day operation..
BTW- If G.W. was asleep at the switch for 9/11 then I guess Bill was wide awake for the Khobar Towers, USS Cole and the first WTC bombings, just to name a few...
