Bush's 7 Minute Pause
Much has been made of Bush's 7 minute pause in the elementary school after the 9-11 attacks. I personally think this is the biggest non-story of all time since NO ONE has come up with a cogent arguement expressing what he could have accomplished during those 7 minutes that would have made any difference whatsoever. Nevermind also that John Kerry said he sat in Democratic Senator Tom Daschle's office "unable to think" for 45 minutes after learning of the attacks. Here's an interesting article from Townhall.com that discusses President Roosevelt's initial reaction to the Pearl Harbor attacks (he did nothing for 18 minutes). Check it out.
