When nobody was looking? Terrorism sure doesn't rank very high on the national polls of most-important issues anymore..
Even Iraq is falling away as an issue. Barack Obama is running almost entirely against Bush's economic record, promising free chickens in every pot (fueled by green technology), pausing only to mention terrorism when reminding voters that Bush hasn't been chasing terrorists into the Pakistani caves where they live (even though he has).
Obviously this post is tongue-in-cheek; Bush didn't secretly win the War on Terra anymore than Obama rescued America's worldwide reputation while causing proud tingles up and down network anchor legs by simply running. Er, well the last part is true. But no, the polls are reflective of public indifference after seven years without an attack coupled with some war fatigue.
But technically, if Obama is correct that Bush is responsible for the economy isn't Bush also responsible for shutting down terrorism against America? And if so, what kind of change would Obama propose to 'turn that around'?
