Former President George W. Bush signaled on Thursday that he sees not reforming Social Security as his greatest failure from the eight years he served in the White House, the Chicago Tribune reports. In 2005, the president unsuccessfully tried to partially privatize Social Security.
"I would like to be remembered as a guy who had a set of priorities, and was willing to live by those priorities," explained Bush. "In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amidst a real danger."

Then claiming he "kept us safe" .....We had the largest / worst terror attack on our soil with him as President, never got the "mastermind" and did we arrest the ANTHRAX killer?? Don't think we did...
I agree to a point... in some ways he thought he was 'keeping us safe"... Just not as effectively as MANY Americans truly felt. But I also think that Clinton should have done more after the first WTC bombing, then after the Cole Clinton said~If, as it now appears, this was an act of terrorism, it was a despicable and cowardly act. We will find out who was responsible and hold them accountable"... then 9-11... The writing was on the wall and very little was done by EITHER administration. Then add to it the transition from one admin to another and lack of continuity and communication. Many failures.
