I believe there is a case to be made for Bush on this score. I also think there is another side to the issue.
It took 19 Saudi Arabian terrorists here on student visas to pull off 09/11. We now have something like 30,000 Saudi Arabian nationals on our soil under the student visa program.
Bush may have pulled it off, and he may not have. Will the next incident take place on his watch? We don’t know. We are one incident from him getting credit, to him being the goat.
He has allowed people from terrorist states to come here. He has allowed tens of millions of illegal border crossings by God knows who. And we have no idea where all those folks are, or what their intent is.
We have no way of knowing what plans are in the works today, and if they will take place tomorrow, next year or seven years from now.
When it happens, and it will, we will know. And not until...
I would be agreeable...Bush has had positive points and negative points. The lack of any real attempt to build the border fence...makes the administration look foolish. This stimulus package stuff this year? A major joke...which I doubt does anything but fluff up Wal-Mart and help buy more Chinese products. The safety of America? Well....tons of foreign students on our soil....from China and Russia...and Arab countries...doesn’t sound like a safe practice to me.
There are tens of millions of illegal immigrants here. They came over many, many years, through every administration. No, there was no 9-ll during those long years of neglect and malfeasance by every US administration and every Congress, but there was no more excuse then than there is the past 8 years. But you in your over the top anti-everything Bush - even the entire Bush family - say President Bush alone has allowed tens of millions of illegal border crossings in his 7 years.
