>>> So, what do you have to say for 9/11? I believe that was on the "conservative" watch, right? Our luck ran out then. Indeed, the republicans knew how to keep our country safe. (sarcasm intended)

Luck didn't run out...Clinton blew his 8-10 chances to get Bin Laden and eventually Bin Laden got us.

>>> Oh, I forgot the shoe bomber under the Bush administration. Of course, nearly (over) 3,000 didn't die like they did when we were "successfully" attacked during the Bush administration. The far right is doing it's level best to rewrite history. Try rewriting 9/11, please, please.

The FACT is that the Clinton administration, like Barry is doing now, treated terrorism as a law enforcement problem, which carried through the first months of the Bush administration. However, after 9/11, Bush changed the country's position on terrorism to one of a military war-footing and established policies and safeguards that kept us safe...until Barry was elected, of course.

>>> :D. Real facts are really good things.

I know...we just wish the left would start using them. :D

>>> Bush and his far-right administration most assuredly did not keep those people in the Twin Towers safe, that plane full of people who went down in PA and, how could it be, the Pentagon - THE Pentagon.

Unfortunately, those people were as safe as the Clinton administration left them.

>>> The chicken hawks Bush and Cheney - yeah, keeping the country safe. What a sad, sad laugh.

And yet, under Bush's anti-terrorism policies we were kept safe for 7 years. Under Barry's pro-terrorist policies there have been 5-6 terrorist attacks in Barry's first 18 months...yeah, keeping the country safe. What a sad, sad laugh.

>>> And just to reiterate, 9/11 happened under the fool republicans who along with their brother far-righters somehow, some way have conveniently forgotten who occupied the White House and controlled Congress when America suffered its most deadly terrorist attack -

Yes, 9/11 happened shortly after Bush took office...before he changed Clinton's "terrorism = law enforcement problem" and "stone walls between intelligence agencies" policies. One can only wonder if 9/11 would have happened at all, and those thousands of lives would have been saved, if Clinton took any one of the many, many chances he had to get Bin Laden.

>>> and then they capped it off by waging war on a country that had nothing to do with the attack.

Would that be the war that was supported by the Democrats?...until they hypocritically thought it was politically expedient to attack the US and the military, of course.

>>> Not only didn't they keep the country safe, they were complete idiots on figuring out who the enemy was.

And yet, Bush, won the Iraq war despite the left's attempts to push the country to failure, and kept us safe for 7 years...and as soon as Barry is in charge, terrorists are coming out of the woodwork. Coincidence? I think not. Thanks Barry!!!
