That might be the most ignorant statement i have ever heard . If you watched the documentary on the events of that day, you would know that everything ric said is true. In an event such as 911, there is a federal protocol that goes into effect immediately. Be it a republican or democrat president. If gore was president the same thing would have happened and i personally would not have had a problem with it. Cheney and bush's staff were taken into the bunker in the white house. Cheney was quoted as saying the two secret service agents came into his office and physically lifted him up and brought him to the bunker. I'm not positive on this but i think it was the first time this protocol was ever implemented. At that point there were still two planes headed for Washington and 2000 planes still unaccounted for. Anyone with a half a brain would understand that at that moment, the last place bush should have gone was to Washington. Do you have any clue the chaos that would have followed if the president (Republican or democrat) was assassinated on top of what had already taken place that day? With all that was going on, the main objective at that point was the presidents safety.
It is amazing to me how people are so one sided in there views. Yes i normally vote republican, but i am registered independent. This allows me to evaluate each individual candidate and make an educated decision on who I think is best for the job. If i thought that a democratic candidate was more qualified I would vote for them. Always voting for one particular party, no matter what is insane. If all of a sudden cigarette stopped making high performance boats and started making sailboats, would you buy one because that's what you have always done? Or would you look at another manufacturer, because Cigarette no longer meet's your needs. Yes, it is a simple and mundane analogy, but you get the point. Wow that would really suck huh........ Happy bird day...
