And he trumps the opposition again:

"This girl lost her mom in the World Trade Center on 9-11."

Bush stopped and turned back.

"He changed from being the leader of the free world to being a father, a husband and a man," Faulkner said. "He looked right at her and said, 'How are you doing?' He reached out with his hand and pulled her into his chest."

Thanks for sharing that, and your subject line was right on target.

The girl's father was quoted as saying: "I'm a pretty cynical and jaded guy at this point in my life," Faulkner said of the moment with the president. "But this was the real deal. I was really impressed. It was genuine and from the heart."
Ya' know, one would have to be pretty jaded to find some kind of nasty political cr@p in this decent story. This grieving widower and motherless child were comforted by someone - that's just dang awesome in my book.

....GWB didn't need a poll to tell him what to
do in this situaton. It wasn't staged or otherwise
choreographed. Didn't wait for the TV cameras to
position themselves. Instant reaction to the moment.

And you probably also noticed that the main stream
(leftist) media hasn't given it much air time or ink.

Yep, Right Man, Right Place, Right Time
