2009 is the worst year for a president since 1978[.]
Ahem. Maybe a review of George W. Bush's first year is in order:
- In the wake of a collision with an American sub and a Japanese fishing ship during which nine are killed, President Bush
appeased embarrasses Americaapologizes to the Japanese.
- An EP-3 collided with a Chinese plane over PRC airspace. 24 crewmembers were detained and interrogated until the U.S.
appeasedapologized to the Chinese.
- On September 11, 2001 much unpleasantness occurs, conservatives salivate.
- U.S. invades Afghanistan, does not catch Osama bin Laden. However, lots of people die, so it's a wash, right?
In short: eat a dick up til you hiccup, Hugh.
