This Is What A President Sounds Like

Twelve years ago today we heard these words from President George "dubya" Bush on his visit to Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks.

Every time I hear this short impromptu speech, I'm nearly brought to tears. Say what you will about his administration, his presidency, his legacy, or this visit to Ground Zero itself, this is what a president should sound like - telling it like it is, straight from the heart, not from a teleprompter.

He wasn't the best president we've had, but on that day, he truly rose to the occasion.
