Say what you will about his policies, he was the right person to have in office on 9/11. As Mark Davis (local DFW conservative radio talk-show host) said, “I thank God every day that George W. Bush was President” on 9/11.
Critics have severely demonized him, called him evil for his action post 9/11. They call him stupid for his response at the elementary school. They call him an opportunist claiming he used these events for his own political gain. These people who say these hateful things are horrible, and their remarks don’t deserve attention, so I will not make this post about that.
I echo Mark Davis’s comment. I am so very grateful that he was the person in office. He simultaneously had resolve and determination in regards to our enemies, composure and grace in how he communicated to all of us, and love and compassion for those who were personally impacted by the tragedy.
And, we are all safer because of him.
Thank you, President Bush.
