The Oklahoma City Bombing saved Clinton's presidency, didn't it? http://www.jacktimes.com/world/america/ ... dency.html Its something to definitely think about. Terrorist attacks have strengthened presidencies, given them more opportunities to further take away our rights such as the Patriot Act, warrant-less wiretaps, and may have even helped get Slick Willy re-elected. Remember, Slick Willy was hurting in the polls right around this same time in his presidency, as in right now in Obama's presidency. OKC brought his poll numbers back up. Not to mention Slick Willy has been on National TV lately warning that the latest rise in people upset with our government, also people know as "Hatriots" as he calls them, will lead to another OKC Bombing, soon. Then of course 9/11 allowed Bush to scare everyone into passing the Unconstitutional Patriot Act right under our noses. More government control. If the public gets scared and your are able seem like you've got the solutions with more government control and bringing a torn nation back together, people will come running back to you. Think about it.
