Bush has had a few years to leave a legacy and he certainly left one. For a conservative I'm pretty on the hard on guy, but he makes Clinton look good, and you have to dislike him for that. One thing Bush could have done was put an enormous amount of energy and money into rebuilding the towers. I know there was a lot to consider, and blah, blah, blah! Do you think Reagan didn't think is complicated when he said, "tear down this wall." or when Kennedy said we are going to the moon. They did those things and we can't put up a building!
It ticks me off. Everyday they are down the skyline is broken and the terrorist still have hope, a glimmer of past success. Then the Iranian President comes here and smugly waves his hand at us. I wonder if he want to the site or just looked at the skyline and smiled. How much better would it have been if he came here and a shadow was cast upon him by the enormity and grandeur of the tallest building in the world. But instead those buildings are being built in other countries.
We should have built that taller. They should be done. They should have been the craftsmanship of American pride and resiliency. Instead it will be another task left undone by this President.
