So, that's 5 terrorist attacks on US soil that took place under Clinton's watch.
Bush had one terrorist attack take place in his first year in office, and then 7 years of zero terrorist attacks on US soil. I think his record of success is pretty clear.
Anyways, if Texas does secede, then I might just move back down there. WAR TEXAS!
Between 9/11 and 2008, i remember attacks on US embassies or consulates (if they are not the same thing) in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan and I think even Greece ... to say zero terrorist attacks in 7 years may be an overstatement, but maybe cuz they weren't on scale with 9/11 ...
