    Everyone needs to say a prayer for everyone in the Texas area and for Anderson, Gary and others to stay safe.

    Anderson you be very careful, I think this is one hurricane to be reckoned with. They had one really horrible there in the 1900's.

    Hi Anderson. I pray that you and your staff will remain safe in Texas. I hope that the people in Texas are providing buses and etc that will help people evacuate. God Bless!

    To all the reporters in Houston...put up some cameras and get out of there.These warnings sound way to serious to take any chances.

    Let's get Sarah Palin to pray for the hurricane to "Peace Be Still". Since she seems to know the mind of God and has an inside track, she can start serving the country in that regard.

  15. Don, WA

    Get outta town Galveston...get outta town.

    Sarah Palin...don't blink? No...think and blink Sarah...think and blink...we need someone who will think and blink.

    All of you in Ike's path, stay safe!!! That includes the tough reporters.

    That is a good question about coastal southwest Louisiana. I haven't heard much about it. Hopefully plans are being taken.

    @Mike, I 100% respectfully disagree with you. Obama is an extraordinary candidate and leader. He is more than qualified.

    The Palin interview was hard to watch. It was a train wreck.I really want to get on to the debates! They should be very interesting.

  20. EJ (USA)

    I bet "Bush Doctrine" is going to be one of the most googled phrases tonight and especially tomorrow when we hear the entire interview.

    Charlies Gibson is direct in his questioning. If this ruffles her, she needs to step aside.

  22. David, Indiana

    Thanks for showing the tribute in light in NYC

    Ike is filling up the gulf, I am worried about the flooding along the Texas coast and into inland areas, a 22 foot storm surge is double that of Gustav

    Everyone getting on Sarah Palin, but I bet she comes through this grilling. Is magic involved in this campaign because there are so many comebacks?

    September 11, 2008 at 10:55 pm |

    Instead of trying to raise America's image after eight long years of the "Bush Doctrine" mentality, we place someone like Palin into a position to do even more harm to our standing and once great reputation in the world. Enough!!!!

  24. Rick in NJ

    Anderson you and your crew be careful and thanks for reporting from TX in this dangerous storm.

    Ok . . . Sarah, Sarah, Sarah . . . . really now. I think it's a shame the Repubs have talked her into this mess. She is clearly out of her league. I pray John McCain lives through his presidency if he is elected.

    God bless everyone on this 9/11 anniversary and everyone stay safe. I'm not in the mood for politics tonight! Peace.

    Biden has not been doing a very good job in his role as a VP attack dog. He can attack Palin and McCain's policies without referring to gender.

    Biden and the Campaign should treat her like any other man running for office

    September 11, 2008 at 10:53 pm |
  26. EJ (USA)

    I'll also say a prayer that this hurricane will significantly weaken before it hits Texas.

    Anderson, you just said that only 1 in 10 Americans feel terrorism is an important issue in this election. If that is true we only have one person to thank for that.
