Terror Plots Foiled by President Bush

When they are not thinking up ways to smear and lie about Sarah Palin, the morons on the left are trying to ridicule and lie about President Bush and his incredibly effective program of disrupting and stopping the Islamic terrorists trying to kill Americans and others who love freedom. Many of the plots that have been foiled through the President’s policies will never be known. That is the way it is, but we do know that we have been safe and secure in our homeland since 9/11, when we all expected that many major terrorist acts lay ahead. We do know, however, of some of the successful operations that have been carried out, and Fox News has published this list:

If Barack Obama becomes president of the United States, the big question will be, will he adopt the same stupid Jimmy Carter-esk flawed thinking that will put us all in danger? I say that he will. Most Liberals are "stuck on stupid" when it comes to national security, and I don't see Obama being any exception.
