GOP pundits and politicians love to point out that there hasn't been a successful terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11 (that last part is essential since it destroys the argument if it's left out). This is, they say, due to George W. Bush's masterful prosecution of the War on Terror. Some even go as far as to say that invading Iraq was proven correct after the fact because of this. IMO, this is a really simplistic way of rationalizing bad ideas. But that's not the point of this post.

My prediction is simple. Assuming a Democrat takes the White House and presides over a similar absence of terrorist attacks on US soil until their term ends, the same people will call it a coincidence or luck.

It's just how they work.
