On the heels of the North Korean flare-up that could precipitate us into a war in Asia (possibly a nuclear war), we are somehow safer under Obama.
Excuse me, Gen. Jones, but George Bush had almost eight years to prove how we were safer–no successful terrorist attacks during that time. That’s a pretty safe record. Hard to beat history, wouldn’t you agree?
But, we are safer with Obama; somehow four months of no attacks is safer than eight years of no attacks.
Only in Washington.
For the past seven years, we have been assailed with stories of how criminal and lawless the Bush Administration has acted with regard to its prosecution of the War on Terror. Specifically, the charges against Pres. Bush have included the use of wiretapping communications between people in the US and people overseas without obtaining a warrant, overstepping the Constitutionally-limited authority of the Presidency via the Patriot Act, and other charges ranging from engaging in War without the express consent of Congress to genocide.
The NY Times is featuring a story today that should put to rest the claims of criminality at least regarding warantless wiretaps by the Bush Administration. It turns out that they are legal after all. And conveniently, the ruling comes just before Obama takes office.
I predict, however, that this will be seen as selling out on the part of the Times by the rabid left in this country, in an effort to make peace with the outgoing Presidency. It will also be seen as Obama failing to implement the promised changes.
Here’s hoping Obama’s other promises come to naught.

Farewell Mr. Bush. And thank you for your service to our Nation.
