I got this email from a staunch republican friend of mine.
I guess I should just be so happy that Bush is our president...

Forwarded email follows:

In case you are too young to remember, some Americans still can!!

There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of
January..... in the fair city of Detroit (Michigan) there were 35
murders in the month of January.
That's one American city folks,
about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq!

Worst president in history?

The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper
as a letter to the editor.

Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. 
They complain about his prosecution of it.
One liberal recently claimed Bush
was the worst president in US history.
Let's clear up one point: 
We didn't start the war on terror. 
Try to remember, it was started by terrorists BEFORE 9/11.

Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims.

FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.

>From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500  per year.

Truman finished that war and started one in Korea.
North Korea never attacked us. 
>From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of
18,333 per year.

John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962.
Vietnam never attacked us. 
I think history might show Eisenhower committed the troops
and Kennedy was honoring that commitment.

Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
>From 1965-1975, 58,000  lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. 
Bosnia never attacked us.
He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three
times by Sudan and did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has
liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, 
put nuclear inspectors in Lybia, Iran and North Korea without firing 
a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 300 a year.
Bush did all this abroad
while not allowing another terrorist attack at home.

Worst president in history? Come on!

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking,
but ... it took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take 
the Branch Davidian compound in Waco. 
That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for 
less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm 
billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to
destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Teddy Kennedy to
call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

Our military is GREAT! 
And so is our PRESIDENT!

Telling it like it is!
Now, pass this one on and on and on!!
