President Bush will be giving his farewell speech later today. In less than a week we will have a new president. We haven't agreed with everything that President Bush has said or done; in fact, we were horrified at the seemingly unchecked spending binge that Washington has been on, and that was before the socialistic bailouts were approved.
However, it cannot be ignored that there have been no attacks on American soil since 9/11. That doesn't mean there have been no further attempts; it just means that Bush has been proactive and done all that he could to keep us safe. For that, we are grateful. History will probably be kinder to Mr. Bush than are many currently alive Americans. As they say, hindsight is 20/20 and once all facts are known and a couple of more presidents have come and gone, many people will look at Bush's presidency with clearer vision.
