Bucking conventional wisdom, Ann Coulter in her latest syndicated column calls President Bush a “great president” and predicts that “the man responsible for keeping Americans safe from another terrorist attack on American soil for nearly seven years now will go down in history as one of America’s greatest presidents.”
She adds: “It is unquestionable that Bush has made this country safe by keeping Islamic lunatics pinned down fighting our troops in Iraq…. Our servicemen must be baffled by the constant nay-saying coming from their own country….
“Monthly casualties in Iraq now come in slightly lower than a weekend with Anna Nicole Smith. According to a CNN report last week, for the entire month of May, there were only 19 troop deaths in Iraq. (Last year, five people on average were shot every day in Chicago.) With Iraqi deaths at an all-time low, Iraq is safer than Detroit — although the Middle Eastern food is still better in Detroit.”
She closes with a swipe at John McCain: “The sheer repetition of lies about Bush is wearing people down. There is not a liberal in this country worthy of kissing Bush’s rear end, but the weakest members of the herd run from Bush. Compared to the lickspittles denying and attacking him, Bush is a moral giant — if that’s not damning with faint praise. John McCain should be so lucky as to be running for Bush’s third term. Then he might have a chance.”
