Must give you chills to remember that now.
Every time I see his face on a program it makes me realize how vulnerable we all are, and I think about those poor people on those planes.

I stood next to him in line at a supermarket and was scolding my son for whining about me not buying him something. He has a biblical name, and Atta must have thought that I was Jewish, so he turned around and gave me the most hate-filled look I've ever seen by another human being. It was chilling, but I didn't give it a second thought until I saw his photo on the news after 911 (I'm one of those people who never forget a face, but I'm not as good with names). That week we learned that he and the other terrorists had rented an apartment 2 blocks away from my child's elementary school for the months prior to 911 (Hollywood, FL). We truly cannot count on our government to protect us.

I believe that the terrorists are already here and planning another attack, they're just awaiting the go-ahead. What KIND of an attack remains to be seen.

I agree completely. This garbage we keep hearing. "Fight them over there, so we don't have to fight them here," is truly ignorant. It is comforting to some to believe that.
Didn't Bin Laden in one of his infamous videos tell America there would be another attack, but time was not a factor. It didn't matter to Bin Laden when it happened. That the next one would be more devastating.
That is scary, when you combine those statements with the belief of some that GW Bush is doing a good job protecting them. In my opinion he is adding to the terrorists list of potential followers. He doesn't protect the borders, the imports are unchecked, the troops are abused,to name a few. So many mistakes.

There's no doubt that he'll go down in history as our worst President ever. He has run our country like a frat boy at college and away from home for the first time.

I don't think there is a Democratic candidate that's any better. I think Hillary will be a complete mess (she seems scattered and not focused), Obama is only concerned with special interests and his "pet" projects (citizenship for illegals, expanding the welfare base, etc.) and the rest of them seem luke-warm on ALL issues facing our country's future. I've always liked Edwards, but he's another one trying to GIVE more of our country away than building (and FIXING) it from within.

I am leaning toward Ron Paul because he speaks with common sense and honesty (in my opinion), but I'm still hopeful that a 3rd party candidate will emerge to sweep all of them under the rug.

I heard it suggested today that Ron Paul is likely for a third party candidate. Largely due to the fact he previously ran as the Libertarian Candidate along with the large bank account he now has. I heard he raised 6 million this last weekend. A couple of weeks ago I heard part of an interview where he said they are having a hard time finding places to spend the money he's getting.

Yes, I'm impressed with his grassroots support and it seems to be growing fast. It will be interesting to see what happens in Iowa in a couple of weeks, then New Hampshire in contrast.
