He Kept Us Safe

When Jeb Bush was asked about his brother’s administration in the first Republican debate, his answer was: “Well, he kept us safe.” That answer was baffling to anyone who remembered that 9/11 certainly occurred on President George Bush’s “watch.” I wonder if Republicans would admit that President Obama is the president who has “kept us safe.” He has kept us from being embroiled in the conflicts in the Mideast. Hawks would argue that keeping us safe has made us weak and appearing to be a push-over. In my opinion, George Bush ushered us into the mid-eastern mess which has led to the entanglements that we have had so much trouble extricating ourselves from. I continue to pray that history will prove that Barack Obama was a great and effective president. The attempts to belittle his administration have been unceasing but, despite everything, he has stayed the course and accomplished many good and positive things.
