9-11: George W. Bush and his bullhorn

Lots of people have written today about that terrible morning: where they were, what they remember, maybe honoring the victims or the many valiant heroes of the battle and its aftermath. I wondered what I would write. I decided that, rather than focus on the day itself, something others have done much more eloquently than I ever could, I wanted to share video of what has become one of my strongest memories from that time: the moment, when, three days later, George W. Bush stood amidst the smoldering ruins from which the dead were still being recovered and rallied a stunned and bloodied nation:

That was the day a man who won a disputed, contentious election truly became President of the United States of America, and I’ll forever be grateful for him.

Note: this is a reposting of something I wrote for the tenth anniversary. My sentiments haven’t changed in the years since.

    Except that Shrub II was the founder of the “Religion of Peace” lie. And let those Saudis saunter back to their homeland without being questioned.

    God damn him to hell for what he did to this country. And God damn every Koch-sucking piece of Rove Republican shit along with him.
