Good point.Abraham Lincoln built and financed a railroad during the middle of the Civil War and the Congress was still passing legislation just as if nothing was happening. It was just business as usual, minus a few southern congressmen.
No, I understand you can see no reason why he should stick around when Americana are under attack. Any idea what he might have been doing instead?.I see no reason why Obama would need to sit there and wait once he was briefed and the orders were given. Any further updates could be relayed to him via modern communications and technology. Personally, I prefer a president who can do more than just one thing at a time.
But of course he did give a different story as well.
Do you still believe it was the fault of the Internet guy too?
