But it's Bush's fault.

Some interesting facts from an email sent to me by my Momma. When put in this context it makes me want to corner every loud mouthed liberal who can't do anything but blame Bush for everything from the price of gas to global warming, shove their Birkenstocks down their neck and staple their lips shut. (Yeah yeah yeah, it sounds violent. So what? Get over it.)

Things that make you think a little:

There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January. In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in themonth of January. That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq. When some claim that President Bush shouldn't have started this war, note the following:

a. FDR led us into World War II.

b. Germany never attacked us; Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ... an average of 112,500 per year.

c. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never attacked us . From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,334 per year.

d. John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us

e. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost an average of 5,800 per year.

f. Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

g. In the years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya , Iran, and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

h. The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking. But it took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Renoto take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51-day operation.

i. We've been looking for evidence for chemical weap ons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.

j. It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

k. It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

'Ol GW might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but in the nearly 5 years since 9-11, Not one major terrorist attack has occured on US soil. Say what you will, but I'll take that anyday over Kerry or Gore or Hillary sitting around some table waiting for permission from the stinking UN.
