    BUSH 7, TERRORISTS 0
    September 10, 2008


    Morose that there hasn't been another terrorist attack on American soil for seven long years, liberals were ecstatic when Hurricane Gustav was headed toward New Orleans during the Republican National Convention last week. The networks gave the hurricane plenty of breaking-news coverage -- but unfortunately it was Hurricane Katrina from 2005 they were covering.

    On Keith Olbermann's Aug. 29 show on MSNBC, Michael Moore said the possibility of a Category 3 hurricane hitting the United States "is proof that there is a God in heaven." Olbermann responded: "A supremely good point."

    Actually, Olbermann said that a few minutes later to some other idiotic point Moore had made, but that's how Moore would have edited the interview for one of his "documentaries," so I will, too. I would only add that Michael Moore's morbid obesity is proof that there is a Buddha.

    Hurricane Gustav came and went without a hitch. What a difference a Republican governor makes!

    As many have pointed out, the reason elected officials tend to neglect infrastructure projects, like reinforcing levees in New Orleans and bridges in Minneapolis, is that there's no glory when a bridge doesn't collapse. There are no round-the-clock news specials when the levees hold. You can't even name an overpass retrofitting project after yourself -- it just looks too silly. But everyone's taxes go up to pay for the reinforcements.

    Preventing another terrorist attack is like that. There is no media coverage when another 9/11 doesn't happen. We can thank God that President George Bush didn't care about doing the safe thing for himself; he cared about keeping Americans safe. And he has, for seven years.

    If Bush's only concern were about his approval ratings, like a certain impeached president I could name, he would not have fought for the Patriot Act and the war in Iraq. He would not have resisted the howling ninnies demanding that we withdraw from Iraq, year after year. By liberals' own standard, Bush's war on terrorism has been a smashing, unimaginable success.

    A year after the 9/11 attack, The New York Times' Frank Rich was carping about Bush's national security plans, saying we could judge Bush's war on terror by whether there was a major al-Qaida attack in 2003, which -- according to Rich -- would have been on al-Qaida's normal schedule.

    Rich wrote: "Since major al-Qaida attacks are planned well in advance and have historically been separated by intervals of 12 to 24 months, we will find out how much we've been distracted soon enough." ("Never Forget What?" New York Times, Sept. 14, 2002.)

    There wasn't a major al-Qaida attack in 2003. Nor in 2004, 2005, 2006 or 2007. Manifestly, liberals thought there would be: They announced a standard of success that they expected Bush to fail.

    As Bush has said, we have to be right 100 percent of the time, the terrorists only have to be right one time. Bush has been right 100 percent of the time for seven years -- so much so that Americans have completely forgotten about the threat of Islamic terrorism.

    For his thanks, President Bush has been the target of almost unimaginable calumnies -- the sort of invective liberals usually reserve for seniors who don't separate their recyclables properly. Compared to liberals' anger at Bush, there has always been something vaguely impersonal about their "anger" toward the terrorists.

    By my count, roughly one in four books in print in the world at this very moment have the words "Bush" and "Lie" in their title. Barnes & Noble has been forced to add an "I Hate Bush" section. I don't believe there are as many anti-Hitler books.

    Despite the fact that Hitler brought "change," promoted clean, energy-efficient mass transit by making the trains run on time, supported abortion for the non-master races, vastly expanded the power of the national government and was uniformly adored by college students and their professors, I gather that liberals don't like Hitler because they're constantly comparing him to Bush.

    The ferocity of the left's attacks on Bush even scared many of his conservative allies into turning on him over the war in Iraq.

    George Bush is Gary Cooper in the classic western "High Noon." The sheriff is about to leave office when a marauding gang is coming to town. He could leave, but he waits to face the killers as all his friends and all the townspeople, who supported him during his years of keeping them safe, slowly abandon him. In the end, he walks alone to meet the killers, because someone has to.

    That's Bush. Name one other person in Washington who would be willing to stand alone if he had to, because someone had to.

    OK, there is one, but she's not in Washington yet. Appropriately, at the end of "High Noon," Cooper is surrounded by the last two highwaymen when, suddenly, his wife (Grace Kelly) appears out of nowhere and blows away one of the killers! The aging sheriff is saved by a beautiful, gun-toting woman.

    I often find myself feeling sorry for Bush. I mean, really, is there anything that he HASN'T been blamed for? I don't think I've ever seen one person get so much criticism for EVERYTHING.

    But thankfully he hasn't given up on us.

    I must be dreaming, I could have sworn I just read a positive article about Bush.


    Seriously though, pretty good article. Unlike some people I haven't forgotten 9/11 and I'm not ready to stop making them pay for their actions. I'll be happy when every last terrorist out there has his head on a pike... literally.



    As soon as 9/11 happened, Bush was doomed. He was in a no-win situation from that point forward. Less than a year into his first term...


    Really, I blame the media for it.



    Even watching SNL tonight, it's annoying how they make fun of Palin for her "media elite" comments, nevermind that it's the truth (whether your a democrat or republican).

    In a "anyone but Bush" world... the libs pull out ALL the STOPS.

    If you are going to blame BUSH for EVERYTHING then you have to be willing to give him credit for keeping us safer. I believe that we get hit with another 9/11 if he were not the president.

    Wasnt there another attempt to crash planes into the US recently that was thwarted by US. (7 International flights to crash into US cities). I cant stand the thought of another hit. It would be worse. The Towers were horrible but it was isolated to that area. Imagine if they hit something with a larger radius or something that sets off a chain reaction.

    Its ridiculous really. Did this election EVER have a chance to truly be about the issues.
