Skip to comments.Obama to skip 9/11 Ground Zero ceremony
Posted on 09/07/2010 12:57:43 PM PDT by Justaham
President Obama will mark 9/11 at the Pentagon, as he did last year, rather than risk facing angry demonstrators at Ground Zero, where his convoluted remarks and walk back on the Ground Zero mosque might subject him to criticism "like a dog." So the families of the vast majority of 9/11 casualties will be stiff-armed by a thin-skinned commander in chief.
Not exactly a profile in courage.

But he’s sending his bowser of a VP instead.
Unrelated, but I laugh to myself every time I hear or see the phrase, “profile in courage”, especially considering that the man it’s attributed to was a drug-addict and serial philanderer. Yep, what “courage” there.
At the rate he’s going he could lose New York in 2012. How sweet would that be?
Does a shout out in support of his brothers to build a mosque, but skips the American ceremony. Typical.
Profiles in Namby-Pamby
Ohaha knows full well that building the Ground Zero mosque is another version of "Triumphalism".....brough to you from another group of hyphenates bent on mischief. Latinos are itching for Reconquista. The mosquevites are looking to impose Sharia law on the US.
All of us are sick and tired of these foreign-born "hyphenates" sticking it to Americans. Americans know all the world wants to live like we do---even our poorest live handsomely compared to some of these backwater Third World hellholes. Now instead of blending into the US melting pot, the hyphenates want to radically change our culture---they want us to be like them.
That ain't gonna happen.
Think what you will about JFK, but as he authored “Profiles in Courage,” it was his fellow soldiers he wrote about who were courageous. He was not writing about himself.
Is not the phrase "like a dog" more likely to be uttered by a Muslim, or am I wrong about that? Muslims do not like dogs.
In today's pampered pet culture being treated like a dog is not bad; just consider dog motels with air conditioning and pools, pampered kennels, dog burial grounds, dog toys, etc.
Barry is really going to regret that "dog" ad lib. He gets in trouble every time he goes off teleprompter.
He’s going to the Pentagon instead, isn’t he? Maybe he’ll toss a rose on the site.
There we go! Thats our Man!
....recognize it for what it is.
Ahhh, hows he leading , and who is he leading in Afghanistan and Iraq? Who is he helping in Iran? Gee, lets give hamas more money and weapons to fight Israel, pakistan? Hell lets send them more money too.
The really sad, and scary part is...our enemies already know this....
He knows that at the Pentagon the crowd will be made up of restrained military personnel that won't boo.
“Think what you will about JFK, but as he authored Profiles in Courage,
Profiles in Courage was ghost-written by Arthur Schlesinger.
Of course, that didn’t stop JFK from accepting a Pulitzer Prize for it.
“it was his fellow soldiers he wrote about who were courageous. He was not writing about himself.”
The latter statement is undeniably true. But he wasn’t writing about his fellow soldiers either. He was writing about people who exhibited courage in politics—most Senators.
Would that we’d seen some of that same courage when the Senate deliberated on Clinton’s impeachment or when Blue Dog Senators were being asked to vote against the clear interests and desires of their constituents in the final vote on the health care bill.
Obama,you low-life POS.
Not to mention the book was ghost written.
The one aspect of the Kennedy family that I do think reflects decently on them, is the service of Joe and John Kennedy in WWII.
Joe was KIA and John was WIA. One could argue that John wasn’t much of a PT boat commander, if his boat got cut in half by a larger ship in the middle of the night. If there was no moon, I think that might be a bit harsh.
Yes, the old man was tied to the mob, made his money from running illegal booze, and tinkered with elections to advance his son’s political aspirations. I think the mob was involved in John’s election to be president too.
John was on major narcotics as he served as president. He was a philanderer and even toyed around with mob molls and at least one Iron Curtain spy.
His time in the service may or may not have reached the level of a profile in courage. The pain he endured while he served as president may or may not have reached the level of a profile in courage.
There was certainly a dark side to him. I don’t think the guy should have been president.
That said, the Democrat party in Kennedy’s day was nothing like the Democrat party of today. He supported the military, pushed through tax cuts, and opposed the Communists with a passion.
He was severely flawed as a man, and I think even contributed to the mindset of a young Bill Clinton, and what he would grow up to be in time.
So was he to be taken to task? I think so, on a number of grounds, but this lout we have in there now makes Kennedy look like a founding father by comparison. Of course that’s not the level of guy Kennedy was, but he certainly had more on the ball than Obama.
Hell, most fifth graders have more on the ball than Obama.
At the Pentagon, Zero and his minions can control the make-up of the crowd. There will be cherry-picked Obama uber-lovers, all ready to act enraptured as Zero ladles it on.
At Ground Zero, Pam Geller and company would be waiting for him.
He’s not going because he knows it would be seen as a Muslim standing over the site, equivocating. He won’t be able to resist defending the Muslim hordes and trashing U. S. citizens in the process.
-—they want us to be like them. That ain’t gonna happen.
Exactly. A BS photo-op is there ever was one. I hope stone faced silence greets him at the podium.
-I am glad he is not going. It would be an insult,
a slap in the face of America.
He would have been booed by the New York crowds.
He knows that at the Pentagon the crowd will be made up of
restrained military personnel that won’t boo. -
AMEN! I was going to say that but now I’ll just agree with you.
People can bitch that he’s not going to NY,
but the SOB doesn’t deserve to show his face at the site
of the fallen Twin Towers, where Americans were murdered
by by the evil ‘religion’ he defends and upholds.
And yes, the Pentagon is the obvious choice because
he has to be somewhere, and the military will be much quieter
than the crowds in NY will be.
Notice mrs posotus will also not be in NY.
If JFK had actually written the book, your argument would hold a little more water.
He’s a moslem.
Absolutely. He knows Americans don't want him anywhere near Ground Zero after his vocal support of the Ground Zero Mosque.
Does that remark show how he regards his own pet dog BO? I think he was lobbing a word bomb at the conservatives because muslims don’t have dogs as pets and to regard him as one would be interpreted as lowly.
I was reacting to the statement made that JFK was the ultimate narcissist in writing Profiles in Courage. My point was that at least JFK could at least honor others. I did not realize the politics attached to that piece. I’m guessing the 40 years since I’ve read it, it has lost some lustre.
I like my dog. I never criticize my dog except when she steals food from the dinner table. If our dear leader was treated like a dog, he would be loved by all.
Something more important on his schedule, golfing or another, his 160th, vacation at the tax payers expense.
Barak Hussein 0bama woof woof woof. This has a better ring to it than mmmmm mmmmmm mmmmmm. Woof woof woof dawg!
IMHO the man is not intelligent and isn't even a particularly good speaker. I think he's gotten along in life by affirmative action and being able to parrot back to liberal academicians and politicians what they want to hear. I'd sure like to see those school transcripts.
I thought he had a ghost writer.
Yes, she has made it abundantly clear she was not proud of her country at that time, or any time for that matter, before her husband was elected.
“He would have been booed by the New York crowds”
I think he would be crucified.
What a POS.
And that's another thing he got wrong.
We do not treat him like a dog -
We don't like him nearly that much and it's disparaging to dogs.
I see him more on the level of a dog's favorite leg.
His wife is going to PA to the let’s roll site. She is joining Laura Bush.
Biden is going to ground zero.
Obama will probably get a round of golf in if he stays for the pentagon ceremony.
Here to hoping some of the soldiers give Obatboy a “Woof, Woof”!
He was gonna go, but its date night and Michelle won’t let him.
chickensh*t as usual.
I couldn't put my finger on what PO'ed me about his whining about being treated "like a dog" (grammatically incorrect, BTW. Should be "as a dog"), then I read your post. That's it! He thinks being treated as a dog is a bad thing, when for most Americans, who love their dogs, it's the opposite.
He must treat Bo like crap.
I’d pay money to see Deborah Burlingame tear him a new one.
His handlers are afraid he’ll be roundly boooooed by the shepple since they can’t control the crowd and only allow SEIU thugs.
You know; I hope he doesn’t. He doesn’t belong there.
Good! Good people don’t need a loser like Obamao belittling things.
