Timely quote.

In a Time magazine essay titled "Eight Years Later," Michael Kinsley wrote what I think sums up the Bush presidency pretty accurately:
Sept. 11 is the excuse for many of the Bush Administration's failures and disappointments. It is also the basis for the one great claim made on George W. Bush's behalf: At least he has protected us from terrorism. In the seven years since that day, there has not been another foreign-terrorist attack on the American homeland. The trouble is that there were no foreign-terrorist attacks on the American homeland in the seven years before 9/11 either.
If you wish to read the rest of this essay, it was published in the current issue dated January 12th, 2009. I suggest that you check it out before Bush leaves office and joins the ranks of thousands of Americans who no longer have jobs.
