The article starts out: “Seven years. Zero attacks. Almost zero credit.”p>Well, Mr. Hillyer, that may have something to do with that first year and that one big attack that, of course, happened on Bush’s watch. Shall we award him credit for that?

If only the opposing party would actually put their country before party and give credit where it’s due, but they will bash this president until their dying days. No good deed goes unpunished, and Mr. Bush has been getting his punishment and has taken it like a man — not in the whining ways of the girly-men party. I shudder to think where we would have been with a President Gore or Kerry. I lose sleep thinking of where we will be with a President Obama.p>The Dems think Mr. Bush has done nothing to make us safe and everything to lessen our freedoms, at least that’s the party line. They need to grow up.
