    forgive me for saying so, but I am more concerned with terrorist attacks upon the civilian population of the United States, than other places.

    our foremost responsibility is to protect the homeland, which Clinton did a good job of doing.

    Riiiight ... just like had Clinton increased GDP 20 trillion instead of "just" 3 trillion, and had Clinton reduced unemployment to 0% instead of "just" 4%, maybe then the economy wouldn't have melted down under Bush. And maybe if Clinton had nuked Iraq while he was president, maybe Bush wouldn't have taken America to war there over WMD that weren't actually there.
