Yet, notice how the story puts Bloomberg and Ubama in the foreground, then adds in President Bush and America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, as guests...historic artifacts as it were. I am kind of dreading the anniversary.
I guess it it’s not political Sarah Palin, in fact
ALL the primary candidates could attend, just paying
their respects ya know.
Sarah should just show up in the crowd,
state, “ I’m just here as an American citizen
mourning our loss and showing respect to
those other Americans who lost their life
in this vile attack.”
>> “This cannot be political,” says Bloomberg.
What we do without the guiding principles of Mayor Bloomberg? /s
It sounds as though Bloomers is worried about his ‘RAT comrades who have sided with the Islamoterrorists against America.
Bush will be seated in such a manner as to get shots of him applauding Obama’s comments from behind him.
Look for those to re-air in the Octobet/November 2012 time frame in campaign Spots.
“Fearless leader universally respected...”
Bloomberg doesn’t want stuff to be political, yet he publicly performed a fake marriage for two homosexual men on his staff.
But he isn’t political.
Maybe bloomberg and Barak will get a real bad flu...
Under him we did not tire; we did not falter; we did not fail.
Tell me about it, I was literally 15 blocks away, right below Canal street when those towers fell, and people were red-faced-enraged screaming to rebuild the towers, you can even see that in some videos of that day.
Instead, what we got is a giant silver Al-Qaeda trophy which you can bet is exactly how Al-Qaeda and every other America hating scum will forever see it. I get sick to my stomach everyday I drive past it. Like Trump said: “If the Statue of Liberty was destroyed you don’t build the Eiffel tower in it’s place”
6 years it took to build those TWO towers. If it was started even as late as 2005 it would have been done already which would have been a TRUE tribute to the victims and the resilience of the American spirit.
Instead what we got is disgusting pushes by this Mayor and other liberati to build a Mosque of all things, and shove to the side the heroes and true leaders of that day who remained steadfast and strong. You think we’d be looking at a giant silver Islamic trophy and talking about Mosques if Giuliani was Mayor? Hellllll - no. This is the guy who kicked Arafats arse out of the city.
And look what they did to Benard Kerik. Compare his story to Charles Rangel.
I haven’t been below Canal St. since that morning. I was giving serious consideration to going back and attending the 10th Anniversary Memorial.
For some reason I never gave a thought to Zer0 appearing at the service.
I think I’ll stay home here in WV.
“O” needs to be uninvited. This is OUR anniversary of a horrific tragedy, and has nothing to do with HIM.
Obama is finally practicing civility—he didn’t order Bush to stay away, the way the Democrats told Cheney not to attend the memorial for Sen. Wellstone (even though Cheney was President of the Senate).
And Obama is going on Haj.
Obama will read about himself saying “I” 50 times, urge people to vote for him in 2012 because “he got Osama” single handedly, stress how we just need to talk to Al Queda, and have someone from the new Mosque praise allah.
Obama, Bloomberg, Schumer and Gillibrand should sit together on one side of the podium and Bush, Guilliani, Pataki and Christie on the other. Literally and figuratively, we know where the light weights will be!
Those lives snuffed out by terrorists mean something. Let the heartfelt and forthright speech givers speak.
SNIPPET from the article link in post no. 1:
"Speaking on his weekly radio show Friday on WOR-AM, Bloomberg said the lawmakers will read short poems or quotes. No speeches will be given."
I’ve had my issues with Bush, but at least he was an American president, and he took more on the chin like a man than the current Oval Office occupant could dream of, not least of which was pointed fingers of responsibility for the September 11th attacks when even al Qaeda is clear that planning started in the Clinton administration. It’s more than regrettable that the people, vox populi, weren’t listened to about rebuilding the towers. We should have rebuilt them to the exact same appearance, but faster, better, and a few stories taller.
Welcome to New York again, President Bush. Thanks for your continuing leadership.
