keeping us safe

RT Adam Kotsko @adamkotsko:

Remember back when George W. Bush was installed as president against the popular will, then presided over the biggest foreign attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor, then led us into a war based on lies -- and he was reelected because he "kept us safe"? I think about that a lot.

RT Adam Kotsko @adamkotsko:

George W. Bush's incompetence and lies led to more American deaths than any other post-Vietnam president, by far -- and he "kept us safe." Everyone agrees: he "kept us safe."

It should be noted that Barack Obama, too, didn't do nearly as much of a drawdown in the efforts to "keep us safe".

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
