I suppose that the Clinton doctrine of ignoring terrorism in hopes it will go away is better. After all we were only attacked what, 4 or 5 times on his watch? And the attacks of 9-11-01 were able to be planned and be carried out because of his policies. Obviously kicking their ass on their home turf hasn't worked, since we have been attacked how many times since 9-11? Oh that;s right, none. I guess you think Al Gore would have been a better leader in the aftermath 5 years ago?

I can hear him now the night of the attacks "I'm sponsoring a commission to determine why these young men are so angry with us. We will start by initiating a dialogue in hopes of showing them we are not evil blah blah blah."

Although, I don't know why we immediately jumped to bashing Clinton and Gore from a post mentioning nary a word about terrorism, Bush rightly deserves some credit for there not being any other attacks in the U.S. since 9/11, but it is about the same level of credit that can be attributed to: a) a general increased sense of vigilence in the American public; and unfortunately, b) plain dumb luck. Some of his polcies work, some are open to speculation and some are clearly overreaching. Even former Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge specualted the reason we hadn't been attacked was due to luck.

I would give credit to Bush for dismantling Al-Qaeda's main staging areas in Afghanistan. That definitely helped decrease their ability to function. Why he didn't press more in Afghanistan (put more troops there, focus more on setting up a democracy) to really wipe it all out is unknown. No, wait -- i remember because he had to get into Iraq A.S.A.P.

Sadly, the rampant discrimination of Arab-Americans has also decreased the likelihood of another attack in the United States because any Arab having the slightest hint (be it real or imagined) of any wrong doing is round-up for preventive detention or questioning. I agree that this works, but it seems to be a bit extreme and totally racist.

Furthermore, the Muslims in our country are more moderate and intergrated then those in other countries. They also have not been willing to serve as hosts for some sort of jihad in America.

I am going to make the (possibly incorrect) assumption that original anonymous is the same anonymous using the phrase "drive-by media" from a few posts ago and reading off of Rush Limbaugh's daily talking points based off the always reliable "Blame Clinton" argument.

And shocker, the terrorists that were just stopped in England a month or so ago were stopped because good old fashioned police and detective work - a law enforcement approach --- not because "we are fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here."

Dear Original Anonymous:

::snooze::

I don't know what you're talking about. The article was about Bush being a bad president. Which, he is.

You have a lot of anger. I think someone needs to go eat an ice cream sundae to make themselves feel less angry! Go for an ice cream! Go on!

I'm bored with you. Check out White Dade's "Conversation wtih Anonymous," or whatever that post was called. Go now. And quit annoying me. Or at least grow some balls and stop posting under "Anonymous"...come to think of it...I can moderate that... hmmm...


And Andy - your mom's not dead. But nice try with the guilt. Maybe next time, SUCKA!

Brewer Patriot, you're my Hero! ;)

I like how you get mad, while I get condescending. It works for me. Let's be trial partners! You can do all the angry research and yelling, and I'll just smirk at opposing counsel, infuriating them, and making them have strokes!

Nevermind what I wrote earlier, I agree with Superbee.

And some ice cream would be delicious. When I used to work at the PSU creamery, I would eat so much of it. And my girlfriend liked it, cause I would come home smelling like sugar and ice cream.

ok, when you use "dude", "snap" and "served" in the same comment, you sound EXACTLY like my second son, The Young Republican.

RT - Professionally, I don't use those words. Although I was tempted to tell an opposing counsel today, "Dude. Just chill. Relax. This isn't a big deal..." Which is odd, because I don't really speak that way. Except sometimes, those words are just so appropos, especially when Andy needs a little Schoolin', SupaBee-Style.

And TBP - you worked in the CREAMERY!? Wow. I am SO jealous. Next time we're at Gordon Biersch (or at my pah-ty this weekend) I want to hear ALL ABOUT IT. I only worked in the stupid library in college. If I had worked at the Babcock Dairy Plant...well. I would have gained more than that Freshman 40 I gained...and am still losing...

Well, actually the article never really addresses Bush, it just makes some nebulous points about some earlier presidents then fails to connect them to the current one.

I have now registered so that I can in fact be correctly identified as the person from a while back. I confess to using one of Limbaugh's phrases, but have not listened to him for some time. He has become a bit extreme, and where I thought he had well thought out opinions at one time, during the Elian Gonzales affair I decided he was simply anti-Clinton for the sake of being anti-Clinton and became turned off to him. It is the same thing that now turns me off to so many Bush bashers. I'm not here to say he is perfect, but too many people are against whatever he says simply because he says it. I ge ttired of it. And whether I agree with his policies or not (belive it or not, I think he is way off on immigration, among other things) I do believe he is an honest, sincere man.

Hahaha, my mother lives!

But I bet you freaked out momentarily and called Jessica to find out.

Anyway, get back to discussing politics (wasting time and getting nowhere changing each other's minds).

Call me when either party puts up someone worth voting for.

Andy - I knew your mom was alive. I had about three seconds of, "Um..." before I was like, "No, he talked about her in a couple posts." I didn't have to run to Ghaffs, my go-to girl on all things Andy...

I do, however, know that your GRANDMA is dead! HA-HA! YOUR GRANDMA DIED! HA-HA! Ohhh. Wait. Mine did too. That's not funny... that hurts...

I don't care about persuading other people to feel other ways. This is my blog where I get to be King and rant.

And, Original Anonymous...whether Bush is sincere or not, I could give two shits. I'm sincere as hell, that doesn't give me the qualifications to run a country. That notwithstanding, I even call his sincerity into question. I think he's sleazier than Clinton or moreso, because he hides behind his veil of religion, and the ginuwahn thre-aht of terrah. At least Clinton was outwardly scummy, and made no bones about it.

And my last comment to "Original Anonymous" before I check out of this conversation thread, because this went in an entirely different direction than I had intended altogether, and I have Commercial Loan Transactions to put together, is the following: The article tied all of those craptacular presidents, including the current one, together quite nicely.

It gave the three worst presidents in U.S. history, and in the last section, gave a quote about some of the most serious transgressions of each of those failure-presidents.

The real kicker was that the transgressions that those past failures had committed, all applied to George Bush, as well. After all, H.L. Mencken died in 1956, and yet his analogy to Harding's way of speaking matches up exactly with Bush's...

As for calling Bush an honest and sincere man... I've already made my position known on that subject. He's a liar and a crook. The person, not the office, is what deserves respect. In my mind, he deserves none. He had me five years ago. He lost me.

Bush could have made himself the next F.D.R. five years ago. Instead he's created a lame-duck presidency with one of the lowest approval ratings in history. I will never, ever understand why anyone, except for the insanely rich, and those with lots of shares of oil stock, still rally around him.

And enough with the Gore speculation. He won the popular vote, but because of my corrupt domicile, lost the presidency. So, it's a non-issue.

Would 9/11 have happened if he had been elected? We'll never know. How would he have reacted? We'll never know. It didn't happen, it will never happen, so you earn yourself no credibility points there. Arguing speculative happenings is just that. Speculation. Which is a sustainable objection in Court, as it proves nothing.

This topic is now closed.

like watching a tennis match between John McEnroe and Billy Jean King. With spitting.

this talk about ice cream now REALLY has me jonesing for some ice cream.

RT: I like to imagine you eating ice cream while I'm eviscerating someone. I like it a lot, actually. I think from now on, when one of my posts sparks a debate, I'm going to imagine you pulling up a chair, sitting down, and cracking open a pint of Haagen Daas, and quietly spooning in the contents, while it goes back and forth.

I hope at least I got to be John McEnroe... he was cute.

And BP - Go buy yourself some. But give half of it to Franklin. You'll have yourself a very, very farty dog... I'm guessing Franklin is sort of farty already, though.
