And invanding Iraq did not prevent another attack. Note were were not attacked between 9/11/2001 and 3/19/2003. The belief that we would be was misguided and without any evidence to support it. Clinton did nothing after the first twin towers effort and got form 1993 to 2001.
I know it is useless to ask folks to think about this stuff beyond the superficial, but Iraq did nothing to help us. The invasion only hurt us.
But, let's focus, Bush spent. A lot. You make excuses for him, but never a dmeocrat. Isn't that so?
