I Hear You. The Rest of the World Hears You

Keith Hennessey shares his recollections of the President and people he knew:

Nine years ago today President Bush visited Ground Zero in New York City. One lasting image is of the President, standing on a pile of rubble with his hand on the shoulder of a firefighter named Bob Beckwith, talking to the rescue workers with a bullhorn.

Awesome. Hat-tip: Terri

That speech, and that moment, still gives me chills to this day.

That's the George Bush I will always remember.

And that's the George Bush that was re-elected in 2004. You know, "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists?" Who knew that even the President's State Department wasn't with us?
