*Although regarded by many in the public as a "lightweight," especially for his lack of active-duty experience in the military, Vice-President Quayle is present at many of the Presidential National Security Briefings every morning and meets with the President on a frequent basis. As second-in-line to the President, he was kept well-informed on the day-to-day operations of U.S. forces in the Gulf and attended the policy-making meetings inside the White House that determined the fate of operations.
Publicly, Quayle was used to drum up support for U.S. policy and rally American's behind the troops. He traveled to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield and visited the families of troops during Operation Desert Storm. Although some may have been looking for a giant "gaffe" to give an excuse to the Republican's to drop him from the '92 ticket, he has performed loyally and admirably during this crisis.
