    Okay, that`s an interesting perspective.
    I don`t think he handled it right, but I`ll be less critical now.

    Hmm...
    I do understand that it made the kids feel better, but honestly, it did seem like your country was under attack. Perhaps minutes counted but it may also have been true that they had to prep a chopper or something first so they told him to sit tight.
    Damn you perspective challenging my paradigms.

    I suspected this was from that clown 5cats, but I wasn`t sure.

    Usually his posts have some sort of pro-republican or pro-conservative message that is not only useless and boring but takes a fair bit of time to debunk.

    This time it was just "Bush did the right thing by not overreacting". Is that it?

    I`m pretty sure most people would have done the exact same thing

    There have been times in my life when I wish I had done things differently. I will afford Bush the same.

    I have complete respect for him for staying with the kids. Its easy to walk out, it takes guts to stay composed.

    As much as I disliked him, I never had a problem with his reaction. It looked like shock and trying to decide his next move, to me. It always bugged me that people criticized him for it. Many of us would have done the same thing.

    madest: You still have a child`s mind, I`ve rarely seen you comprehend the consequences of an action more than a few feet in front of your nose. But you are not alone, most of the youth of this country is growing up ignorant like that.

    Grace, etiquette, poise, manners, and common sense are disappearing fast. American has become `fast-foodized`, By that I mean everyone wants what they want, their way, and they want it now no matter what others may think or the consequences to be paid later.

    Whatever CJ, This man you constantly make excuses for allowed OBL to walk free while persuing a war of vanity. He acted just like a child looking for acceptance from his daddy. Must have been a huge disappointment for him.

    No Madest, he has a point. You never argue with calm, sane arguments. You are always inflammatory and hateful, like a child.

    Why even ask these kids? Do 17-year-olds have great insight into world events? Their answers are the same now as they were ten years ago.

    True enough @LazyMe, but still the MSM gave him HELL for years! He waited SEVEN WHOLE MINUTES!!! Zomg! Michael Moore had a huge chunk of one of his movies about that looooong delay, eh?
    Truth was, the Secret Service needed the time to get things going.
    Now: Bush could have gone off and waited in a secluded place, but he didn`t. He stayed with the kids and finished the storybook.
    He was in TEXAS (iirc) what could he possibly do about attacks in NY? Once abord Airforce One there`s stuff to be done, but before that? Zilch.

    So it`s nice to see that those who actually were there have a clearer understanding of what went on than "media pundits" in their LA offices...

    I am glad most everyone here could have handled that situation better. Question is; what would have done?

    Well @Cartunze, soon enough those 17 year-olds will turn 18 and some will enter the Armed Forces to keep the USA (and Canada too!) safe!

    So YES we should care what 17ers think about the very events their country may send them off to fight in.

    It would take a childs mind to understand the actions of a moron.
    Ah! That explains why no one understands you @madest! lolz!
    I`d better "dumb it down" in case Baalthy reads this:
    See: no children are here to understand @madest, who is a moron, get it Baalthy? Good boy.

    @Cartunze Please don`t generalize us, I`m sure you would actually be quite surprised by some of us. I can`t speak for every one in my generation as some of them are complete dumbasses, but I keep up on current events. I probably know more than some people in your age group.

    Do any of you have evidence that the extra minutes Bush spent in that classroom had any impact whatsoever on the response to the attacks?

    No madest, it gets a bit tiring that every time someone has a counter point to something you say, all you ever do is call them names or question them personally. It makes everyone involved not give a poo about what you say, because it`s just tiring to read, and 95% of the time, it has no substance.

    Ok.. so was he supposed to do? Jump up and scream holy poo! Oh my gawd? Leave the room in hurry, confusing the children, perhaps scaring them? Or perhaps remaining calm and collected while considering the situation and wait for more information will continuing to read to the kids. There was nothing he could do at the moment but remain calm and be a role model to those kids. Dumb poo liberals.

    *sigh* Sit there and read to the kiddies, Dubya. Country`s under attack, but maybe if you pretend nothing`s happening it will all just go away. WORST PRESIDENT EVER.

    "scare 20-30 children and tackle the terror attack situation properly, like the we have invested billions of taxpayers money on, and take cover in a secure area, because if they get me, the country will be in chaos or find out what hapens to the goat..."

    this was your president`s ultimatum... thank god somebody thought of the children
