Bush Trumpets US Security Record While In Office

President George W. Bush says that while there has been lots of debate about his policies, there can be no argument that America has been kept safe since the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

In a speech at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa., Bush said Wednesday that after the attacks, he set up an elaborate plan to reorganize the governmental apparatus to confront such threats. He said the United States has worked at the same time to nurture alternatives to hateful regimes.

The speech was part of what amounts to a presidential legacy tour, with Bush using his bully pulpit he still has to frame how the country will judge his service. His final day in office will be Jan. 20, when Barack Obama will be sworn in as president.

    We are no safer than prior to 9/11, sure the planes are safer, but what about trucks and boats? Homeland Security is a bloated buerocratic joke that has yet to catch a terrorist, Crime is still at an all time high, our borders are nonexistant, and smuggling is rampant. All he accomplished was trample on our freedoms, twist words and blame a guy for 9/11 who was never formally charged, and is still on the loose. Had Bush caught Bin Laden, and not slaughtered 600,000 Iraqi civilians, and not bankrupted us, than he can talk about his accomplishments. I would throw my shoe at him.
