There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of

January..... in the fair city of Detroit (Michigan) there were 35

murders in the month of January. That's one American city folks,

about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq!

Worst president in history?


The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper as a letter to

the editor.


Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. They

complain about his prosecution of it. One liberal recently claimed

Bush was the worst president in U.S. history. Let's clear up one

point: We didn't start the war on terror. Try to remember, it was

started by terrorists BEFORE 9/11.


Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims.


FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.


From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per

year.


Truman finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never

attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of

18,333 per year.


John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never

attacked us. I think history might show Eisenhower committed the

troops and Kennedy was honoring that commitment.


Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives

were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.


Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia

never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter

three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on

multiple occasions.


In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has

liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put

nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a

shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own

people. We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 300 a year. Bush did all

this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home.


Worst president in history? Come on!


The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...


It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the

Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.


We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less

time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing

records.


It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to

destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Teddy Kennedy to

call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.


It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in

Florida!!!!


Our military is GREAT! PASS IT ON

Yeah, but I sent it to all my liberal relatives when I first saw it. Funny, they had no response.

{Edit} Just wait until the John Kerry's military record comes to light. It is amazing how someone can "earn" 3 purple hearts and never miss a day of combat, or so I have heard from the preliminary reports.
Another funny thing, how President Bush discloses all his records and Kerry discloses only the part of his records he wants people to see.

Recently named the most dangerous city in America. Lived there for my first 18 years of life. When I left it was the leader with more murders per capita than any other larger city. Bumpers stickers changed from motor city to murder city!

I agree. I don't agree that Bush has done a good job in the last 3 years though. My vote will be against Bush and for an actual veteran of the armed forces.
