Bush’s Unheralded Accomplishments

January 11, 2009

We’ve heard from conservatives many times about how, after 9/11, Bush and Co. have kept us safe from terrorist attack. Jon Swift (who keeps a political humor blog) goes one better:

“After Hurricane Katrina President Bush kept our cities safe.

In the three years and a half years since Hurricane Katrina not a single American city has been destroyed or partially destroyed. There are more than 10,000 cities in the United States and because of George Bush every single one of them, except for New Orleans, is still largely intact. Of course, no one could have predicted Hurricane Katrina, and if President Clinton had not left us so woefully unprepared, New Orleans would probably be in a lot better shape than it is now. But since Katrina, there have been numerous hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, blizzards, fires and earthquakes and none of them has gotten out of hand and wiped out an entire city because of the disaster preparedness policies President Bush put in place. For national security reasons we may not know until records are declassified how many other potential disasters, like epidemics or nuclear power plant meltdowns or alien invasions, were averted because of the work that government agencies did behind the scenes. Unfortunately, Presidents don’t usually get credit for all the disasters that don’t happen. But I think we should congratulate the President for doing a heckuva job on keeping America safe in the years since Katrina.”

Hallelujah. He has a whole list of similar accomplishments here.
