    Yes, absolutely, but... we also got the Patriot Act, which I am none too happy about. Though I think we probably would have gotten it anyway, or something very close, regardless who was in the White House. Simply as an example of our propensity to overreact when serious stuff happens.

    Really, Bush II could have gone down as a great President if he served only one term.

    Yes, didn't know how awful he would be then.

    The only thing that 9/11 did was show us the weaknesses of our security and intelligence. That needed to be fixed. Unfortunately, Bush went way overboard and that damnable Patriot Act destroyed the liberty of Americans.

    I do not think Bush's second term was of much consequence. We were already up to our necks in Iraq. No one was serious about the growing Housing Bubble. Had they been, efforts to curb it would have begun in his first term, and they did not. Bush claimed he had the "political capital" to reform Social Security with his win over Kerry, and found his bag empty. Kerry would have followed essentially the same trajectory in those years. The only thing that would have been different with Kerry is that we probably would not now have Obama.

    Now THAT offers some interesting hindsight

    The divided focus made catching him much more difficult. Obama did not seem to have that problem. They may well have been looking but he managed to elude the forces who were looking. Now he is no longer a problem. But it was Bush's problem and he certainly handled the mission for OBL poorly at best.

    I never voted for the nimrod to begin with, but I gaurantee things would have been way better under Gore. Kerry wouldn't have done much better than Bush though probably. But Gore would have continued Bill Clinton's policies and we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now.

    Nothing more than partisan hank rantings that you clearly don't have any real information to support that claim. You seem to think Obama had our special warfare operatives do something different. In other words, you have no clue. what happened under Obama was a continuation of efforts started under Bush.

    Gore has shown himself to be one giant stupid jackass. He could have been voted mayor of Podunk and been in way over his head. Your "guarantee" ain't worth fecal matter.
