Did anyone else find it odd though? From the C-Span broadcast they showed it on camera for a few seconds, it looked as if she was being escorted from the back through the audience to a side exit. Why not a back exit which she was much closer to. Maybe I was thrown off by the camera angle but it seemed to be a long route to take...

The way he spoke about 9/11 made him almost seem proud that it happened during his Presidency. He almost seemed glad that it occurred so that it could boost his profile.

He was exploiting it. No doubt about it.
DaveC, I think you are the only one who thinks Bush is proud to have 3000 people die in my country. That is a pretty radical statement. What we are proud of as a country is how we reacted to that horrible day. There is a huge difference.

I guess I was wrong about her location then. Interestingly enough they didn't show the second protestor on TV, hmmmm.

Pictures of both protesters here:

The first protester was really close, just five rows away from the president. The other one was much further back, just under the Fox News box.

He is "exploiting" it just like Kerry is "exploiting" Vietnam. It's all bull

Kerry went to Viet Nam and put his life on the line.



W could not even DIGEST a daily breifing that said "Binladen determined to attack in the U. S."

and then he went and hid in a fortified spider hole in Nebraska.

In W's defense he did bravely throw a strike in Yankee Stadium after 9/11.

You have to admit, if it was a Democrat in office they would most likely exploit it too.

I think Giuliani said something to the effect that Bush not using 9/11 at the convention would be akin to Lincoln not using the Emancipation Proclaimation - I thought that was a bit odd

As for Larry King, Marvin and Bush Sr were of course defending W - and the nephew was sort of weird

Does anyone know if Bush even mentioned the almost 1,000 American military deaths in Iraq?

I am not a big fan of "in convention" protestors. I really think they do a poor job of getting their message across.

And then there is the fear of a violent protest against the President....and we all know that could lead to Cheney becoming president.

I personally believe this was a heart-felt speech, probably the best of his tenure as President...

This was a great speech considering GW isn't a great public speaker and half of it was policy and some of it a rehash of politcal jabs at Kerry, war on terror, etc. The last 5-10 minutes though were pretty touching. Bush seemed to get emotional when he talked about meeting soldiers and families. Pretty touching actually. I believe Bushwill get a big bounce and Time poll and a crappy AOL poll indicates it may have done the job. Kerry needs to fire his campaign manager. LOL.

Actually, I think this was his best speech yet. It was a good speech, nothing particularly special, but his delivery was worthy of praise, I felt. He's come a long way since his early days, at least in speech delivery.

It was probably his best speech yet, very touching and genuine... You could see he was on the verge of tears when talking about meeting the families of soliders who died. A lot of his campaign people begged him to drop that part of the speech becaue during rehersals he broke down and cried each time.
