Perino: No Terrorist Attacks In America Under Bush
Source: Huffington Post

Dana Perino, recently nominated by President Obama to the Broadcasting Board of Governors, made an odd claim Tuesday night.

On Fox News, the former press secretary suggested President Obama was playing politics by refusing to describe the massacre at Fort Hood as a terrorist attack. "We should call it what it is," she said.

"We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term," she told Sean Hannity. "I hope they're not looking at this politically. I do think that we owe it to the American people to call it what it is."

For those with memories as spotty as Perino's, President Bush took office on January 20, 2001. On September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the U.S. in terrorist attacks coordinated by al-Qaeda.

Sorry. I tried to stop myself from saying that. I just lost my head.

2. You have to understand, prior to 9/11 Bush was not acting as
a president. He didn't start taking the job seriously until after the attack on 9/11, therefore, the attack doesn't count. x(

:argh:

3. So is she saying Bush knew this was coming?
And therefore it wasn't terrorism?
Thought I would try to twist it like Limpy.
This woman makes Palin appear intelligent.

5. huh?
did hannity mention...911?

on facebook recently - actually it was on 9-11-09 - someone who's a friend of a friend said much the same. her claim was that at least bush kept us safe and now with obama we're at risk. i followed up her post by saying as of today, obama has officially kept the USA safe from terrorist attacks longer than gwbush did.

6. neocons believe they create reality
so she is behaving as expected.

What is amazing to me is that she has ANY credibility whatsoever outside neocon circles.

And for the Life of Me, I can't understand why Obama try and lend her credibility by giving her a job.

9. Why he would "nominate" that Parisian bitch to anything but dog...........
..........catcher is just ANOTHER one of Obama's "what the fuck?" moments. I can't wait until the 2010 mid terms, I am going to sleep late, drink all day, get high and most importantly STAY HOME. The US is unique in the sense that our fascist government has a "two party dictatorship" and not the low class, outdated and inefficient old style one party type like the old Soviet Union or China. "We're Amurika"!!!!!!

11. and Anthrax and E.L.F. Reasonable people wouldn't consider ELF terrorist
Edited on Wed Nov-25-09 09:25 AM by Exultant Democracy
but if you recall the Bushies changed the definition of terrorism to include them so every hummer that burned was an attack under Bush too.

12. No, no, no...9/11 was CLINTON's fault
See, Clinton decimated the military, and our intelligence system, and fired missles into Aspirin factories to cover up the Lewinsky affair, so HE's responsible for 9/11. AFTER 9/11, Bush gets credit for no attacks UP UNTIL 2007, when the investigation of Major Hassan started, which was pro-actively Obama's fault. got it?

17. She's an idiot...
...there...I've said it...she's an idiot.

Then I got thinking...how many people were "terrorized" in killings,
rapes, shootings, and the like, not to mention how many innocent persons
were picked up and rendered away (tortured and killed) when BushCo was in power.

Honey, if you want to split hairs...there was lots and lots of "terror"
during the Terror Reign of BushCo.

18. Does this mean Faux has to kick her off the show?
Or is their new pink slip policy only for the idiots who create incorrect graphics and show incorrect photos of protests?

19. she clearly meant to add "since 9/11" but whatever
it's not like that helps her argument or anything. of course, they always forget about the anthrax attacks.

30. Olbermann must be rubbing his hands together
These kinds of nitwit statements from right wingers, of which there's an endless supply, make Keith's job easy. I expect that he'll have a lot of fun with this tonight.
