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 ...

Also, I'm not from Missouri, I was just saying that there is a lot of talk going on here, not so much walk... if you will.

Also, Missouri isnt the North East, I guess it would be the mid-west? I dont know.
