Er, no

From the files of the Glass Homeowners’ Association Stone-Throwing Club:
First, it’s telling that Kerry is using Michael Moore’s propaganda as a playbook in his campaign. This has a definite whiff of desperation about it.
Secondly, where exactly was John Kerry that morning when America was under attack, and what was he doing?
In an interview with Larry King on CNN, July 8, 2004, Sen. Kerry was asked where he was the morning of September 11th. Here is part of his response:
Kerry: “…And as I came in [to a meeting in Sen. Daschle’s office], Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid were standing there, and we watched the second plane come in to the building. And we shortly thereafter sat down at the table and then we just realized nobody could think, and then boom, right behind us, we saw the cloud of explosion at the Pentagon…” (emphasis added).
It should be noted that the second plane hit the World Trade Center at 9:03 a.m., and the plane hit the Pentagon at 9:43 a.m. By Kerry’s own words, he and his fellow senators sat there for forty minutes, realizing “nobody could think.”
In other words: Sen. Kerry, who criticized President Bush for not rushing out of the Florida classroom for seven minutes, sat paralyzed with his colleagues for a full forty minutes. He is hardly in a position to criticize President Bush for “inaction.”

This whole “how fast did he leave” debate is beyond moronic. Can we all just agree that what Bush should have done is say the following:
Hey kids. I’m very sorry, but something’s come up that I’ve got to deal with right away. I promise you I’ll come back soon. Have a good morning, and God bless you all. God bless America.
Not too upsetting to the kids, and not slothful enough to worry the Kerrys and the Moores. I just said those words out loud. They took less than 15 seconds to recite, allowing for several Bushian pauses.
