Thanks for that....I can live with those comments.
They are reasoned and well intentioned.
Well, I *can’t* live with Christie’s comments. SHAME ON HIM, that a Governor of New Jersey should have such an attitude!
9/11 is about America, first and foremost. It’s also about New York and NEW JERSEY.
How many of those 3,000 innocent people were from Jersey? When all public transportation was halted, Jersey Transit coming in from the Hudson to the World Trade Center was impacted. Many people were rescued from lower Manhattan (remember the choaking dust plumes?) by ferries to Jersey. How many watched the Twin Towers burn and collapse from the Jersey shoreline?
Christie’s reaction reminds me of Dukakis’ bloodlessly well reasoned answer to the debate question regarding his possible attitude towards capital punishment if his wife was ever raped and murdered.
