    Yes, I can see how you expected Bush to do in 7 months after the closest election in history what Clinton did do in 3 years. 9/11 was planned and trained for under Clinton, not Bush. Bush took action, something Clinton should have done when American interests were attacked during his term. Instead he shot a multi million dollar missile into an Arab tent and hit a camel in the ass. That is a liberal success story

    The following is the text of an item from the Presidential Daily Brief received by PresidentWilliam J.Clinton on December 4,1998.Redacted material is indicated in brackets.
    SUBJECT: Bin Ladin Preparing to Hijack US Aircraft and Other Attacks
    1. Reporting [—] suggests Bin Ladin and his allies are preparing for attacks in the US, including an aircraft hijacking to obtain the release of Shaykh ‘Umar ‘Abd al-Rahman, Ramzi Yousef, and Muhammad Sadiq ‘Awda.One source quoted a senior member of the Gama’at al-Islamiyya (IG) saying that, as of late October, the IG had completed planning for
    RESPONSES TO AL QAEDA’S INITIAL ASSAULTS 129
    an operation in the US on behalf of Bin Ladin, but that the operation was on hold.A senior Bin Ladin operative from Saudi Arabia was to visit IG counterparts in the US soon thereafter to discuss options—perhaps including an aircraft hijacking.
    • IG leader Islambuli in late September was planning to hijack a US airliner during the “next couple of weeks” to free ‘Abd al-Rahman and the other prisoners, according to what may be a different source.
    • The same source late last month said that Bin Ladin might implement plans to hijack US aircraft before the beginning of Ramadan on 20 December and that two members of the operational team had evaded security checks during a recent trial run at an unidentified New York airport.[—]

    It's about as logical as blaming Obama for not instantly having an economic recovery from the longest recession since the Great Depression.

    History isn't your friend, the 81-82 recession was every bit as bad as this recession as it was a double dip recession and affected every American. No one is blaming Obama for the recession only the very poor recovery due to poor leadership skills and incompetence. The recession ended in June 2009 a few months ever Obama took office. Guess those cherry picked facts are ones you don't want to hear.

    Were 1960s medium household income data largely based on a single worker in the family? That would add insult to the injury!

    Exactly. Reagan's poor management resulted in his recession double dipping. While the one that Obama inherited was over in just a few months, and despite all the conservative's who were predicting a double dip, it never happened.

    Says who? In some respects today, real people look at the situation around them, and their circumstances haven't changed during Obama's entire term....In fact they would argue that Obama took what should have been a 1 year, or 18 month bad recession and extended it to 6 years at least....I see nothing of substance that Obama actually made better through his policies, and instead see a long string of changing language, and manipulating stats to paint a false picture...Sure you may hate Booooosh, but to continue to blame Bush for today's problems is not only ridiculous, but laughable Scott....You have got to be better than that....?

    Actually, I don't believe we should be blaming or crediting every president with every thing that goes on during the time he happens to be in office.

    I was pointing out the hypocrisy in the posts of many conservatives, who whine about Obama/Clinton/Carter and blame everything bad that happens in the world on them, but refuse to do the same with republican presidents.

    This is a huge double standard, that I find dishonest. But in all fairness, I suppose that those on the left do the same thing also.

    As far as me "hating" Bush, I voted for him, and I didn't vote for Obumer.
