We all know where we were on that horrid 9-11 morning, and how we learned of the terrorist attacks. We all know that our dear president thought it more important to finish reading a story to the class he was visiting, than to simply say sorry kids, there's been an emergency, I have to leave.
Alexandra's Video Friday feature includes an interesting video of Bush's memory of how he learned of the events in NYC.
I didn't know that after reading the story he still did not leave. I recently saw a tape of Mr. Bush in the school assembly hall filled with teachers and students, explaining that he had to leave because "a terrible thing has happened in our country." There was an audible moan from the crowd. But, they should have already known since there was a TV outside the classroom? Don'tcha think?
The sad thing is, that this president would feel the need to stand before people and tell an outright, detailed lie, about that morning.
And, if he would lie about something so simple...........
