    An attack that doesn't get off the ground is not an attack. Groups of drunks fantasizing about pizza delivery or blowing up JFK are not attacks. Meanwhile, there are real attacks being prepared in northwest Pakistan, but Bush decided not to pursue those.
    It has been known for quite some time that AlQaeda attacks in 8 year cycles. So why should Bush be credited with "keeping us safe", when it was Osama binLaden who made the decision to allow 8 years between attacks? I guess it's just easy to say it, and there will always be some fool who will actually believe that George Bush kept the US safe by torturing people.

    ....

    I don't even know how to respond to that.

    Okay, so if you stop and attack before it happens, its not an really an attack. So you can then go forward and claim we've "stopped not attacks". However, if an attack needs to happen for it to be stopped then it'd be impossible to "stop an attack"? That...doesn't make any sense at all.

    Or are you saying the only way you can claim to "stop an attack" is to have a 24 type scenario where the terrorist ALMOST do it but its stopped literally 5 seconds before it happens? Anything beyond that its not "really" and attack and anything after that then you failed to stop it.

    It's where to cut the engine on the jet off 100 ft from the building and it drops straight to the ground. That's a stop.

    The vast majority of this insane spending comes from the insane Nancy Pelosi. The old bitch is even out spending Obammy.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Define "get off the ground".
    Had we intercepted the IJN airtrike on Pearl Harbor before it made land, would that be counted as an attack that was stopped?

    even a partisan hack can recognize the difference between an attack and a fantasy. If a group of bozos talk about blowing up Kennedy airport by dropping a match on a fuel line 6 miles away, and the Feds find out, does that constitute bravery and fortitude in preventing a terrorist act? No, it only counts as getting fools off the street. Which of the alleged Bush-prevented "terrorist attacks" would you consider real, as opposed to rounding up groups of fools?

    You didnt answer my question:
    Had we intercepted the IJN airtrike on Pearl Harbor before it made land, would that be counted as an attack that was stopped?

    And. however true your post may be...
    ...is it your position that the direct actions of the Bush administration did not foil a single legitimate terrorist threat to the US?

    Re: What GOP Leaders deem wasteful in Senate stimulus bill

    So, essentially, then, you're shifting the goal posts from stopping an attack to whether those involved in stopping an attack have exhibited, "bravery and fortitude in preventing a terrorist act"?

    Intellectual dishonesty noted.

    I guess for some people stopping a terror attack ain't nothing important and even real, it's just rounding up some hoods, the equivalent of arresting some qwould-be liquor store thieves.

    Liberals...so funny they're almost dangerous.
