"I was collecting my thoughts."

"Well, I had just been told by Andrew Card that America was under attack. And I was collecting my thoughts," Bush said. "I think what's important is how I reacted when I realized America was under attack. It didn't take me long to figure out we were at war."

I imagine the thought collection went something like this:

Something was said. Not good. What was it? "My Pet Goat." No, that's okay. What was it? "America is under attack!"

Thus Bush's realization that America was under attack.
