Bush on 9/11

Here's some more of that famous Bush "resolve". What did our President say that I can reflect upon as I go to sleep tonight?

''Whatever mistakes have been made in Iraq, the worst mistake would be to think that if we pulled out, the terrorists would leave us alone,'' the president said. ''They will not leave us alone. They will follow us.''

The answer is, nothing.

I think it was shameful for him to talk about those things instead of 9/11 itself. Why couldn't he just honor the dead and leave off the politics for one day?

I agree. He should have stayed away from defending his invasion of Iraq. The honorable thing would have been to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11 and leave it at that.

Here is an interesting piece that talks about rememberance in what I think is a respectful way (vs. what has been done to 9/11):

I would say that this attempt to "rally" the nation has fallen firmly on it's face. Only the 30%of hardcore Republicans out there who support Bush no matter what can possibly buy this language anymore.
