The question is which is more important; the fact that we’ve not been attacked again since 9/11 or the fact that we were attacked on 9/11?” I’d rather have been safe during the entirety of The Regime’s rule, starting in January of 2001.
Finally, the writer, in blaming Congress for eliminating regulations that caused the present financial crisis, implies that The Regime wanted to regulate the banking business but was stymied by Congress.Even though some in Congress, including Democrats, played the deregulation game, it was The Regime and its appointees that spoke out most vehemently against regulations. It’s obvious that the letter writer doesn’t understand the Conservative world view, which says that government should be as small as possible and that corporations should be allowed to self regulate.
We must do, say and write all we can to make sure that George W. Bush is never looked at as a “maverick visionary” who made sound decisions in spite of the resistance he faced.
