    Back when Rudy Guiliani said there were no attacks on Bush's watch I said it wasn't a mistake. I said it was an attempt to push 9/11 back onto Clinton's watch. After all, if there were no attacks during Bush's watch, that big attack called 9/11 that happened sometime around the turn of the century. The voters are getting younger and younger and yes, the day will come when a large proportion of voters don't know the exact year 9/11 happened. But when they're watching Fox News, or sadly even the so called "liberal media" and somebody says there were no attacks on Bush's watch what are they to think? But it's not only the "no attacks on Bush's watch" that are attempts to push 9/11 back onto Clinton's watch. "Bush kept us safe" also implies that the largest terrorist attack in the history of the United States didn't happen on his watch. And as for "only one attack under Bush" statement, voters who don't remember 9/11, and don't remember the exact year, when they hear "only one attack" and they've been hearing over and over and over again that Bush kept us safe, they're going to assume that it was some small rinky dink attack. They're certainly not going to think "that must have been 9/11"

    And we’re also seeing the same thing now with the attempt to place the December 2007 recession on ‘Obama’s Watch.’

    Yeah, they are doing it with other things too. More then just a few times I've heard that it was Obama who bailed out the banks. That was Bush. But it happened just weeks if not days before Obama took office and so people are easily mislead in that case

    KSM, the Mastermind behind 9/11, first Attacked the WTC in 1993... On Clinton's Watch with an Iraqi Agent by the name of Ramzi Yousef...

    Yousef was captured and Tried as a Criminal... KSM remained at large for the duration of Clinton's 2 Terms.

    In 1999 Clinton was given an EXTENSIVE Report that outlined al Qaeda's (who declared War on us in 1996) Desires to use Commercial Aircraft against Specific Targets such as the Pentagon...

    9 Months after leaving Office, Clinton's Inaction on al Qaeda manifest itself in a much WORSE way than it did in 1993...

    KSM finished the job and took down the WTC Towers with (2) Commercial Aircraft...

    He also did extensive damage to the Pentagon with another...

    What did Clinton do with the information he got in 1999 to prevent this?...

    Were the Cockpits of Commercial planes adjusted at all?...

    Does anyone remember tighter Security @ the Airports going into place in the final 2 years of Clinton?...

    Hell, as a goodbye Gift for Attacking a Medicinal Factory in the Sudan instead of just taking bin Laden from the Sudanese when offered, Clinton saw the USS Cole attacked on his way out the door of the Office he Abused and Neglected for 8 years...

    History is History... And it doesn't read well for the Intern Molesting President of the 90's when 9/11 had been in the planning for half of his Presidency and was finished during his final Budgetary year... The same time frame we enjoyed a Recession that was Blamed on Bush.

    But I Digress...

    :)

    peace...

    Whatever happens on the watch of any given POTUS is considered theirs. Fairly or unfairly thats just the way it is.

    If its good they get the kudo's.

    If its bad then they get the blame.

    Most people don't look at what happened before the Prez took office. They look at what happens during his or her time in office.

    If the Clinton administration had taken OBL out would 9/11 have happened?? You can speculate but who really knows??

    If Bush hadn't approved the first TARP would a recession have happend?? There again you can speculate but who knows for sure what would have happened??

    The here and now?? Barry's policies are a failure. It didn't work FDR did back in the 30's. and it ain't workin for shit now.

    He's the sitting Prez so he will get the blame just as Bush did for 9-11.

    8 months after Bush took office we had the largest terrorist attack in the history of the United States.
    The 1993 attack took place 1 month after George Bush left office. How much blame for that attack do you put at his feet


    KSM finished the job and took down the WTC Towers with (2) Commercial Aircraft...
    Does the first dot mean "on" the second "Bush's" and the third "watch"?

    He also did extensive damage to the Pentagon with another...
    Same as above"

    What did Clinton do with the information he got in 1999 to prevent this?...
    What did Bush do with the information he got from Clinton? You do know that that 1999 report came out before he took office don't you?

    Were the Cockpits of Commercial planes adjusted at all?...
    Why weren't they adjusted under Bush. Even when 9'11 was happening and they knew that the terrorists got into the cockpit why didn't they send out a message to all planes telling them to close and lock their cockpit doors. Unlocked and even open cockpit doors weren't unusual in those days. In fact if I remember correctly that was one of the reasons the terrorists chose flight 11

    Does anyone remember tighter Security @ the Airports going into place in the final 2 years of Clinton?...
    Does anybody remember tighter security at the airports going into place during the first 8 months of Clinton?
