point/counterpoint: today's required readings
Atrios takes his millionth stab against Bush and how he handled 9/11: bq. September 11th happened on Bush's watch, after his administration completely ignored the threat of terrorism. Right now, We All Know that George Bush showed "great leadership" after 9/11. How do we know that? Well, because the goddamn Democrats keep saying it. Truth? Bush ran and hid and then didn't stop wetting his pants until 3 days later. I'm not touching this one, because it's been done with perfection. Ed Moltzen gives Atrios a pretty good Fisking, backed with facts. bq. Where to start? If Bush "completely ignored the threat of terrorism," than how did President Clinton react to it? By letting street cops do all the work. After the first World Trade Center bombing, Clinton never even used the word "terrorism" to describe the attack. Go read the whole thing. Ed's a master at this stuff.
