Eight years have passed since that awful day when terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center buildings killing 3000 people.
It’s difficult to listen to the memorial service and to view pictures from today’s memorial. It brings back the memories of the fear and the anxiety and all the other emotions which took place that day and the several days following.
After the emotions settled, I began to wonder, why didn’t our President address the American people right away? We needed to hear some words of assurance from a leader and the only leader that stepped forward was Mayor Rudy Guiliani. It didn’t matter if he was competent or not. What matter was Rudy gave the appearance that someone was in charge. In the meantime, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were no where to be found. They both went into hiding. The idiot, Denny Hastert who was the Speaker of the House at the time, was no where to be found either. This left Guiliani in front of the TV cameras.
Something just wasn’t right about this whole thing. I don’t believe the story that was given to us by the “press” and I don’t believe the conspiracy theories of Alex Jones either. Because of how the President and Vice President handled this crisis on the day of this event, I believe that the truth lies somewhere in between. Bush and Cheney did many vile things while in office. Abandoning Americans on September 11, 2001 was THE worst thing they did. When Americans needed someone to turn to, they were missing.
To show disrespect for those who died and for their surviving family and friends, Glenn Beck and his 912/teabaggers plan on marching on Washington, DC on September 12, 2009 to protest the tax cuts that they received from President Obama and to tell Congress that they do NOT want affordable health care coverage. These fools are tools for big corporations, the insurance companies and for people like Limbaugh, Hannity, Malkin, Rove and Beck who make millions of dollars by spitting hate over the airwaves. Little do these Beck worshipers realize that the media hate mongers will never do anything that benefits them. The 912/teabaggers/birthers/deathers are slaves to Fox and Ruppert Murdoch is smiling all the way to the bank… the very bank that received a government bailout. How ironic. If they only had a brain.
Bonus reading here. Cheney acted as President and directed the government on September 11, 2001. He would not allow Congressional members to show their faces to the media.
