This Veteran’s 9/11 Comparison Of G.W. Bush And Obama Is Going Viral
Fourteen years ago our nation was hit by the worst terrorist attack to befall us.
Three-thousand innocent lives were lost, and a plane load of every Americans, wrestled Flight 93 away from the terrorists and flew it straight into the ground. We each lost a part of America that day; either personally or in spirit.
We have never been the same.
We can all recall the galvanizing manner with which President George W. Bush led our nation, in mourning and in recovery.
We are also very aware of what a failure our current Commander-in-Chief is by comparison, and most of lament that fact.
One such man, an American Army hero, took to Facebook this past September to publicly declare his grievances in this regard, in the form of a comparison between the two leaders.
Here is the post in its entirety:
“14 years ago, I had a President who was certainly neither the brightest crayon in the box nor the most eloquent.
He didn’t fill everyone’s ears with shi* they wanted to hear. He made mistakes, as all leaders do, but he owned up to them.
14 years ago, I had a President who made me proud to take the Oath of Enlistment.
14 years ago, I had a President who shared the sorrow of the nation instead of blaming the nation for the heinous deeds of others.
14 years ago, I had a President who never let the people forget he was one of them, instead of setting himself aside and higher than the people he swore to serve.
14 years ago, I had a President who was proud to be an American and who shared that pride with the people.
Today, I have an eloquent but petulant schoolchild pretending to be a leader.
On the worst day in American history since Pearl Harbor, I had a President who told the world that America will not bow down.
Today, I have a charlatan snake oil salesman who bows to my enemies.
But 14 years ago, I had a President.”
