Bush’s Shanksville Address

Bush’s Shanksville Address

I may not have agreed with many of President George W. Bush’s policies in his eight years in office (although compared to the current occupant of the office, Bush and I have the same mind), but his strength as president was how he handled 9/11 and its aftermath. Each speech, each impromptu remarks, each moment with those affected by the events was always pitch perfect, never merely weepy and emotional, but always evoking the best of America.

The president’s speech in Shanksville, Pa., on Saturday at the Flight 93 memorial are another example of that.
