    ...that George Bush somehow didn't react "appropriately" at the precise moment Andy Card leaned over to inform him of events at the WTC on 9/11 while Bush was in the company of those schoolchildren - I have always wondered what they would rather he had done.

    So - let's hear it.

    I think that he did react the way a statesman should react, especially with children present. I think very few present day statesmen would have reacted with such decorum.

    What did they expect him to do? Go into a telephone booth and change into a superman outfit?

    Really.

    Well, then, quickly - find for me the video of FDR's stoic receipt of the news of Pearl Harbor.

    Fake it, if you have to.

    Funny thing...four years after Pearl Harbor, we WON THE FUCKING WAR.

    Eight years after 9/11, bin Laden roams free and we're still mired in Iraq.

    You really want to compare and contrast the styles/results of Bush and FDR?
    Really?

    Yeah, I gave it all the attention it deserved.
    "An ongoing complaint from liberals"?

    Like that one little incident is what people have been focusing on for eight years?
    Bull.

    You attempt to trivialize the outrage over the eight year travesty that was the Bush administration by marginalizing it to reaction to a video clip...that's what you think "liberals" are upset about?

    No, not at all.

    I merely want you to discuss your having dwelt on it so exhaustively when (one assumes) you have complaints of greater substance to entertain.

    I might easily answer you by asking which of us is trivializing, given your preoccupation with the video in question.

    What "preoccupation" are you talking about?

    Prior to this thread, I don't recall saying anything about that vid clip.

    You're just making shit up.

    No, I merely used the editorial "you", and you leapt into the breach like the good little liberal water-carrier you are.

    You are (in this instance) acting on behalf of the forum's pet five-sided vegetable, whose participation on the board I recognize only peripherally, and usually with this methodology.

    I will grant you leave to extract yourself without penalty as it is entirely possible you overlooked this in your fervor to provide loyal opposition.
