    Oh really, how did that work out for Carter when our helicopters crashed killing 8 soldiers in the failed attempt to rescue the hostages in Iran.

    This led to the development of seal team six....

    Fact there was only a couple of seal teams, six was to mislead the ruskies as to how many we had.

    Why not invite Jimmy Carter, George Herbert Bush, Bill Clinton and all descendants of former presidnets. This was done (after ten years of hunting for one sick man) under Obama's administration. Clear?! If we don't use this as a step go get the hell out of Afghanistan then we never will leave. All stated goals have now been achieved-get out now!!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I guess he has brush to clear...

    I say send a Seal team to the ranch, pick W. up, and bring him to Manhattan.
    I totally get that. "The King is dead. Long live the King."

    I've held two very high-profile positions in my life...a political one for four years, a nonprofit job for six. In both instances, I was front and center, so to speak. I had to watch what I said and did every minute of every day. In each case, when I left those positions, I was "done." I no longer wanted that scrutiny. In one way, it was someone else's turn. In another, I was damn tired of being the center of attention - and, sometimes, controversy.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Clinton's a DINO.

    Bill Clinton is a Dem.

    The point of inviting Bush was to show unity and give credit.

    Did you not understand that??

    I just can't figure out why liberals still don't know that Obama's policies are killing jobs.
    Catch me if you can.

    Bush doesn't want any credit and is not egotistical like Obama. Bush is done with politics he knows that Obama is a two faced dork.

    I liked it when bush went to Ground Zero too. There was a lot of hurt and fear and confusion and anger, and he had some strong words of encouragement. What he said left me feeling like he was on top of it and that something was getting done about what happened.

    I'm not interested in seeing the President make another speech on an otherwise insignificant day. He had his national address when it happened, if he wants to mention it in September that's fine, but there's no reason whatsoever to make a special trek out to New York months in advance.

    At any rate, unless by "still suffering" you mean the ones who are struggling with chronic health problems they picked up by breathing the air that day, I don't give a damn at this point. It's been almost a decade, for crying out loud.
    By still suffering... I was mostly talking about the families and children the victims of 9/11 left behind, and also the survivors dealing with health affects of course. For some people, it's still a very painful wound and many of them probably suffer depression, anxiety, or PTSD in addition to health issues. I see nothing wrong with the president trying to talk to them and join in their celebration or understand where they are today. I think seeing NYC rebuild and people heal is part of our reliance.
