Card had this to say on how George Bush reacted to his message on 9/11:

“He did it exactly right. And not only that, he gave me a chance to do the job to help him, because I could go back into the holding room and say that the vice president on the phone got the NSC staff on the phone, get the crew back on Air Force One, get the Secret Service to get the motorcade ready to go. And Dan Bartlett get some remarks written for the president. He has to talk to 600 people in the gymnasium, and he can’t say anything we do not know to be the truth.”
