Last time they rushed Bush down to the bunker, it was because of a cloud approaching the White House, bizarrely enough.

blimey!! must be scarey being that much of a target

edam Wed 11-May-05 17:25:59

this is all BBC has so far

why did they rush him down to the bunker, surely they would have thought it was his best mate god coming to pay a visit

swiperfox Wed 11-May-05 17:27:59

yep sky news says security have given the all clear. That was a scary few moments

It's hardly the brave leader standing by his people is it, though? Cowering in a bunker, terrified of clouds and leaving the public in potential danger ... not exactly the Blitz spirit. If I was a US citizen I'd want someone who led from the front, not someone who hid behind us.

crumbs! mind you all the leaders have bunkers always have had ,,,or is that bunk ups?
