    I don't think he said, but it just goes to show how much class he really has.

    And Rev, what if the president doesn't turn his visit into a victory parade? Would you acknowledge that or still say he shouldn't have done it?

    Tomorrow's visit to ground zero is nothing but another part of his campaign running for president for a second term. This dork is milking the killing of Bin Laden.
    Catch me if you can.

    You really think thats true? Assuming it was...dont you think he would have scheduled it on a more politically advantageous occasion? 9/11/11...closer to the election?

    This MAY be a purely political stunt...but really? To what political gain? I think you guys are underselling the politician...he's smarter than this. He gains very little from campaign appearances 18 months before the actual election.

    Hey... the American public knows this guy and that's why many relatives of 911 are not attending.

    Tomorrow is not Sept. 11.

    Quite the contrary. The guy is comfortable knowing history will judge him well, that with time and the cooling of political passions, when docs are declassified in decades they will learn that when America needed leadership to protect her and her citizens, he and his cabinet did everything in his and their power to achieve it... and did.

    And Obama seems to agree, for they've kept the entire structure in place, sans waterboarding. Put that in your bong and smoke it.

    Now Carter and Clinton... they are obviously uncomfortable with their places in history, and it shows. Not only that, they're classless.

    The Clintons are what happens...

    The fact that some see anything Obama does as just a political stunt is really telling. Is it not possible that the President of the United States is going to Ground Zero because of what seriously just happened? Eighteen months before the election will have little electoral impact.

    I know and thats my point. There really is little to be gained politically from this and from a partisan persepctive there is so much to be lost by being grumpy about it. I understand Bush not going...it is in-line with his public persona. But speaking out against it or trying to make an issue about if it is or isnt an issue just looks petty.
