    After 9/11, George Bush was the most popular president in US history. Not only was the country firmly behind him, but also much of the rest of the world.

    The question:

    If the United States were attacked again, would Republicans stand behind Obama? Or would they want him to fail?

    This thread doesn't even warrant a response.

    I didn't vote for him and I remember being behind him, even had some friends talk crap to me for supporting him after 9/11. They also said something to my roomate and I for having an american flag up.

    I hope we dont find out.

    I think it would depend on Obama's response. People rallied around bush because of his response to the attacks. I would hope Obama would also stand tall, proud, and strong as an American with his response and gain the same level of support.

    and I think most of the Republicans would surprise you and stand behind Obama. Of course there would be the wacko's who wouldn't. People ask "what has happened to america?" but after 9/11 we proved that we can still come together.

    If, God forbid, we were ever attacked again

    The right wing would hang Obama out to dry.....No question about it

    Because of his initial response. I wonder, if Bush had to do it all over again, would he still have created the Iraq debacle?

    Socialism will only work with a society of prisoners, slaves, and robots who can be controlled by the ruling elite (which will always exist in that type of system).

    Doesn't that sound like the Republican party? Prisoners to dogma. Slaves to the wealthy. Robots controlled by their elite who tell them what to do without question.
