Bush Report: A Failure of Leadership

Here is an excerpt from Chapter 11 of Richard A. Clarke, the former counter terrorism chief under Clinton and Bush about the missed opportunity for leadership by the Bush Administration:
After September 11, Americans were told to shop, not to sacrifice. Far from being asked to pay additional taxes to fund the war on terrorism, Americans were told they would pay fewer taxes and we would pay for the war and additional security by passing the costs to our grandchildren.
Want more of the same? Then vote McCain.

If i wasn't so nervous about Barama be able to win because of his race i might be looking forward to him blowing McCain out of the water in a debate.
