My Last Night with Bush: Feeling Safer Already

Time is running out... And Fosco still has a few last things to say about the Bush Administration!

You may have noticed that the central claim in Bush's legacy talking points is that he "kept America safe after 9/11." This popped up again in his farewell address when he smirked that "our nation is safer than it was seven years ago." (Of course, as numerous people have pointed out, this statement makes it easy to forget that Bush bears blame for 9/11.) But let's try to take Bush's claim at face value: are we safer than we were seven years ago?

I think the answer is clearly "yes."*

*unless you are

Thanks, GWB. Heckuva job!
