Forgotten Fact: The day before 9/11 Rummy announced that the DoD could not account for almost 2.5 trillion dollars (almost half the national debt). And on 9/11 the Pentagon gets his and guess what, where the records and personnel were to track this missing money were the target.

Bush's Legacy:
1) Not preventing 9/11 although he had clear intelligence of what would happen, and on 9/11 showing utterly no leadership but making sure his photo was taken at a school.
2) Going to war with Iraq on trumped up charges of WMD.
3) Violating the basic rights of Americans
4) Torturing foreign women and children in his war of terror
5) Turning the 250 billon dollar surplus budget into a $1.4 trillion budget deficit
6) Running up the National Debt 89%
7) Doing nothing about the price of fuel and wall street corruption leading to the economic depression we are now facing.
8) Cutting the taxes on himself and his rich friends
9) Breaking the law by giving no-bid contracts to Halliburton to build nonusable buildings in Iraq.
10) Took 977 vacation days while POTUS.
11) Allowing CIA doctors to experiment on prisoners.
12) Raided Social Security to pay for his tax cuts, then claimed social security needed to be privatized as it was going bankrupt.
13) During an interview Bush admitted he would have done nothing different in regard to Iraq, although it has come out there were no WMD, no link to 9/11, thousands of American lives lost, and billions lost to corruption due to the sloppy book keeping of the war. In short, he has no problem causing the loss of American life and public funds.

Will they cheer the fact that his only orders that day were to get airborn, after his photoopt, andn 8 hours later to return to Washington D.C.

Even the 9/11 commission, headed by a Bush appointee and composed of Republicans admitted to the above.

What school photo op are you talking about? You mean the moment the planes hit and the school he was already reading too. Seriously? The first plane hit and he stayed calm as not to upset the children. The second hit, he was stunned as EVERYONE in the world was but he as The President had a lot to think about at that moment. He needed to stay calm as not to frighten the poor kids and needed to remain calm and show poise being he was being filmed. I

Look, I am NOT a fan of Bush an got out of Active Duty because of Iraq. But I hate when people pick on that one moment as if he did something so horrible. He remained calm and poised. He had other people taking care of things at the moment. What was he to do? Panic and teleport away? Wheels were in motion to figure out the next step while he calmly wrapped things up and NOT traumatize the little kids.

If memory serves he wanted to return to DC immediately but the Secret Service wouldn't allow it.No ne knew if there would be further attacks (and there were)

I believe he also ordered all flights over the US to land ASAP and all planes grounded unitl further notice.

He also ordered all military to full alert in the US as well as abroad.

I'm sure he gave further instructions and orders that day, but since neither you or I were on Air Force One that day, neither one of us is in any position for conjecture or assumptions.

Im sorry, but I don't understand the logic behind your comment. I understand that you're referring to the book he was reading to the students at Booker Elementary when he learned about the attacks.

But, you do realize he was reading the book to children and not for his own amusement, correct?

You also realize that he isn't the first President (or First Lady) to read to children in a classroom?

I'm not trying to be snarky or direspectful, I'm only trying to understand the relevance of your comment in context to the article.

The only president in our history that can and would be arrested by every other country on the planet if he left the US.

The only country that won't arrest him? The United States.

If you think Bush is a war criminal then so is Obama. He has continued his policies and is now bombing two soveriegn countries but no outcry there from you.

No offense intended, but your comment is blatantly untrue.

Pres. Bush has travelled freely to many countries around the world since leaving office.

I would suggest you do some research before posting erroneous information on these boards.

There are plenty of articles and information supporting my statement.

I won't post a source. I found the information,and from what I've gleaned from reading some of your previous comments you seem to be an intelligent individual so I'm sure you can find it, also.

Again, I mean no offense, I just want you to be informed with the correct information.

Take care.

You'd think the guilt he should feel for allowing it to happen would prevent him from showing his ratface there. He should be in chains rotting in a prison cell.

It happened under Bush's watch. It's his responsibilty. Acting on the daily briefings that spelled out what was going to happen would have prevented it.

You liberals may hate Bush, but most normal people don't. How do I know? Just watch how Obama tries to cozy up to the ex president on 9-11, in order to try and regain the Independents he's been hemoraging at an alarming rate; Then you'll understand what I mean. After the disrespect Obama has shown Bush for the last 5-6 years, Bush should just turn his back on Obama's disingenuous advances, but knowing him, he won't because that's the kind of man that he is.

Seriously? How about the THOUSANDS of times Obama blamed everything and anything on "the last administration" even two years into his OWN presidency. Past presidents did that on their initial campaign trail,but grow up once they are in the Oval Office.
