Why Bush was out of the loop.
Were the protocols written because Bush reacts to unscripted surprises like a deer in the headlights? Is he a threat to the nation because he can't react fast enough? Did someone decide that he can't be relied on to make a decision to evacuate, scramble fighters, give the shoot-down order?
9:05 a.m.: Andrew Card walks up to Bush while he is listening to a Goat Story with 16 second graders in Sandra Kay Daniels’s class at Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. Card whispers in his ear "A second plane has hit the World Trade Center. America is under attack." Bush (commander-and-chief?) keeps listening to this Goat Story with these children for at least 7 minutes, and perhaps as long as 18 minutes. Why didn't he excuse himself from these children right away, and immediately address this national emergency, is totally unexplainable.Look at the shiny watch... you are getting sleepy. Bush keeps you safe. Bush is God's chosen leader. Think I saw that on Wonkette first. I hope and pray that this is a joke, but I won't put it past the rapture right. I'll let you know when I see the first one here in the buckle of the bible belt.
