    I think it would be far more appropriate to save it for a brief mention in a commemorative speech given four months from now.

    Bush has the right idea.
    I see it completely different... A lot of people must see it differently too, because they went to ground zero when they heard the news and waved the American flag and celebrated. It's always good to see our leaders get involved in those moments, because we are not thinking about our parties or politics. It's about our country. I liked when Bush went to ground zero, so I think it would be good to see this president go because Bin Laden is dead now and people are still suffering from 9/11.

    He's trying to unite the country. Bush was more comfortable to keep things divided.
    No, he just has nothing to gain. If he was running for something, he probably would, but he's just not an attention whore. I'm sure Trump will show up whether or not he's invited.

    McCain: Soft on Al Qaeda? | Swampland

    A curious passage from John McCain’s victory speech last night:
    Or will we risk the confused leadership of an inexperienced candidate who once suggested invading our ally, Pakistan, and sitting down without pre-conditions or clear purpose with enemies who support terrorists and are intent on destabilizing the world by acquiring nuclear weapons?

    Did Bill Clinton get an invite?

    Sarah Palin would have done something really vindictive and stupid which would have caused McCain to blow up and have a stroke... She ascends to the Presidency. The economy collapses, the country falls apart, the energy grid goes down... we're back to the barter system. China owns us. End of the U.S.A. Osama is still at the mansion...
