    What would you have had them do? Where do you think the Prez should have been? Under the circumstances, and seeing that one plane had already hit the Pentagon, and another was possibly going for the White House, where was he suppose to be? On the roof of the WH shaking a defiant fist?

    The safest place was to be in the air, in no set place; but constantly moving around with jet fighter escorts, while he and his national security team (which was also on board) was communicating and coordinating what was going on.

    You may think that is cowardice RF; but If Gore had been elected, guess where he would have been? In that airplane, with Leiberman in a bunker. They would have had no choice.

    Apparently you guys don't watch "24".

    The freakin' president hasn't been off Air Force One all season.

    Al Gore - Went to Vietnam
    Dick Cheney - 5 deferments
    Bush - Who knows

    Now why would you think the Gore would hide under a desk and cry for Mommy? I don't believe he is the type. Plus, he couldn't fit under a desk.

    Did I say that?

    I replied to a post that implied Gore would of hid under a desk and cry for Mommy. I just can't see how anyone would think Al Gore would do that.

    It was poking fun of someone I picture choking in the clutch. Do folks have to take this stuff so personally?

    Re: Just for the Record

    People realize that the bin Laden family has nothing to do with Osama and that Saudia Arabia had long ago revoked his citizenship, right?

    The fact is the US gov't has long been in bed with Saudia Arabia due our dependence on their oil. These Saudi nationals are living a life of luxury due to our SUV-loving, gas guzzling ways. They are not going to jeapordize it. These were not the people who carried out the 9-11 attacks. So they put them on a plane and sent them home for their own safety. Whoop-de-do. This is just a big juicy story for silly Michael Moore conspiracy theorists.

    Just to get the spin straight: Before it was an outrageous lie, now its no big deal.

    I'm starting to feel the way Cbus does. After a while all of these P threads seem like a "my son beat up your honor student" kind of threads. The Terri Schiavo thread is an exception though, because I have strong moral convictions about that situation.
