George W. Bush & 9/11


I think that Ann Coulter gets this exactly right:

As Bush has said, we have to be right 100 percent of the time, the terrorists only have to be right one time. Bush has been right 100 percent of the time for seven years — so much so that Americans have completely forgotten about the threat of Islamic terrorism.

The ferocity of the left’s attacks on Bush even scared many of his conservative allies into turning on him over the war in Iraq.

George Bush is Gary Cooper in the classic western “High Noon.” The sheriff is about to leave office when a marauding gang is coming to town. He could leave, but he waits to face the killers as all his friends and all the townspeople, who supported him during his years of keeping them safe, slowly abandon him. In the end, he walks alone to meet the killers, because someone has to.

That’s Bush. Name one other person in Washington who would be willing to stand alone if he had to, because someone had to.


As a people I think that we have forgotten how we felt on that day. A good part of our murky memories is thanks to Bush’s efforts.

Despite the failures he has had, the fact that there hasn’t been another attack in seven years is a monumental accomplishment.

One Response to “George W. Bush & 9/11”

  1. I read her article and came to the same conclusion.

    I’m irritated by hearing things like “blah blah % of Americans think George W. Bush is the worst president in the history of the United States.”

    Not only do they not take anything good that has (or hasn’t in this case) happened, but I simply cannot stand the contemporary nature of that kind of opinion. Most Americans have only been alive for maybe 8 presidents out of 43.
