Laughable! If we get attacked during Obama's administration, Obama and the Democrats are finished, but an attack happens during Bush's Administration and he gets re-elected! Who's looney now?
School time for you buddy.
First of all, we were attacked way before 9/11 happened, and with the way the country was at the time, even when Bush became president I wasn't one bit surprised 9/11 happened. Should Bush have taken the warnings more serious? He sure should have, but the mindset of the country was unfortunately different back then, NO ONE took any of it seriously. 9/11 had to happen before people got serious about it.
After 9/11 happaned that pretty much changed the country, and the world, yeah there are still some morons walking about (many of which I'm sure are in here judging by the post) who have the pre-9/11 mentality, which is dangerous, but ultimately policies were implemented to keep the country safe.
What I'm saying, which you fail to see because you are so blind, and brainwashed, is that if Obama tampers with anything greatly, or makes a move, that kinda puts us back to pre-9/11 mentality, and we are attacked again, he's finished plain and simple. People were skeptical of his toughness on terrorism, thinking he wouldn't be strong enough to handle it, John McCain had/has a much stronger stance in that department, but in the end the economy scared, and became more important to people, and Obama looked like he had a better grasp on it, and McCain wasn't selling that too well.
So if the Democrats dismantle anything, because of that touchy feely liberal bullshit about us being "liked more" or just to do away with everything Bush since they dislike him so, and something happens, then we have a problem. Because people would turn around and be like "Hey we weren't attacked for 7 years, you guys do this and that, and then we're hit again" That wouldn't look good for the Democrats, and especially Obama at all.
As for Bush being re-elected, again no surprise. During the Kerry VS Bush election, people weren't sold on what Kerry wanted to do, and the war and keeping us safe was more important to people at the time, and well most didn't trust the Democrats in that department, so Bush was re-elected.
Things in Iraq are a lot better, and have changed a lot, still dangerous not as dangerous, and it could all go to hell if we get stupid over there, but for the most part things are moving in the right direction, not to mention the economy as I said became more important.
