As a bonus bit of ass-whacking for Brian Lemon's insipid post on the superduperdeliciousness of George W. Chimpster here, let's examine a little more carefully his excerpt from the diseased brain of Clownhall's Larry Kudlow, shall we (emphasis added)?
Against all odds, and despite the usual drumbeat of criticism, President George W. Bush has had a very good year. The troop surge in Iraq is succeeding. America remains safe from terrorist attacks. And the Goldilocks economy is outperforming all expectations.
"America remains safe from terrorist attacks."
Why, yes ... yes, it does. In fact, Americans have never been safer than under the current administration. Well, as long as you discount that spot of unpleasantness back on Sept 11, 2001, of course, which you're always allowed to do since it's kind of inconvenient, which is why, when you're talking protecting America, you should always start the clock on Sept. 12, if you catch my drift.
It's really quite entertaining to watch members of the Ya-Ya Wankerhood drool on and on about how safe America is, provided you get to exclude Sept 11, 2001 from consideration. Apparently, even though Bush was going to keep Americans safe, it was only on Sept. 12 that he decided that he really, really meant it, so you can't hold Sept. 11 against him, 'cuz that would be unfair, ya know? I mean, who could have imagined ... yadda yadda yadda.
And the utter lack of hideous terrorist attacks since then? Clearly, due to President Superchimp's manly, steely-eyed resolve, even though it would be equally logical to suggest that it was only the Democrats retaking Congress in 2006 that's prevented any further loss of life since then.
Really, wanks ... if you want to whinge on about how safe is America, how about you cop to 3,000 dead Americans having happened on your watch? Your president, your hideously-incompetent administration; therefore, your dead Americans. Because for people who can't seem to stop blubbering on about, "But ... but ... but ... Bill Clinton!", you all seem to have real problems remembering what happened before Sept 12.
