I love calling BO by his initials. It has such a fragrant aura about it!
I'm sure he smells fine (unless he's been smoking ). But his policies so far sure do stink.

Can't wait 'til 2012.

Obama would have done whatever Hillary told him too, but I'm sure Nancy Pelosi would have had her say.

He would have stopped reading right away and realized his reaction was being recorded for history for all to judge how he handled the moment. That moment is one for the ages and will haunt Bush for ever.

For those who have suppressed the moment I offer you the above to relive. For those of you to young to know I offer the above for you to learn. For those of you who want to just watch it again for your own personal reasons I offer you the above also.

This thread begs the question, 'would there have been a 9-11, if Obama had been the sitting president?', and the answer is no.

How many of our current problems would we have if we had gone from Clinton to Obama and skipped the Dud in between.

Yeah, the twin towers would still be standing, the economy would still be good, 55,000+ young soldiers would still be alive among othe things. I'd be retiring instead of working to recoup my lost retirement and home equity.

Wow, how much of that Koolaid did you drink. You are seriously delusional. That is one of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard. What will you say if we get hit again during Obama's time, God forbid? 9/11 was carrried out by seriously disturbed people who didn't care who the leader of our country was or is. They hate us, ...me, you all of us for reasons that are illogical and beyond rationale. When will some of you get this whole terrorism thing? We had terrorist attacks all through Clinton's administration on American entities and lost lives, we had 9/11 during Bush's term...not directed at them, but at us and our country and entire way of life.

And besides, Clinton was far more responsible for 9-11 than Bush was. Terrorists respect strength..not pandering and limpwristed responses. Did we have a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9-11? Nope...but England, France, and Spain did. Why? Because of weak leadership in the face of terrorism. Now that Bush is out of office and Nobama the appeaser is in..we can expect another attack very soon.
