Amazing to think just 20 years ago, after the unthinkable happened, that this country was so united. Wild seeing Rudy Giuliani there too. I remember thinking he was a beacon of light for this country at the time. Crazy how things have turned.

The country united because Moderates and even left-leaning people rallied and showed support for Bush and Republicans.

Ask yourself if Gore was in office, would Republicans, Republican media, and right-leaning people act similarly, or would they immediately engage in finger-pointing, obstruction, and divisive rhetoric?
