The Bush Response to 9/11

Despite what Halperin says, President Bush didn't do anything on and after 9/11 that any other human being would have done as president. In other words, there was absolutely nothing special or extraordinary about the way President Bush responded to the attacks -- other than to sit there in stunned silence for nine minutes. Beyond that, he was nothing more than average.

Tell me, Mr. Halperin, name one thing he did that was so awesome?
