Obama, Bush to be at 9/11 anniversary ceremony, N.Y. mayor says

New York (CNN) - Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush will be part of a small group of politicians to participate in the ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced during his weekly radio address Friday.

Also in attendance will be governors Andrew Cuomo of New York and Chris Christie of New Jersey, as well as former New York State Gov. George Pataki, who was in office at the time of the terrorist attacks.

    It really is unfortunate that some 10 years later, we still have not rebuilt the buildings. America went to the Moon and back in under 10 years under Kennedy's leadership. He wasn't in office when the achievement occured but it was he that provided the crucial, foundation leadership in the early days that allowed Nixon to reap the glory.

    Similarly, if Mr. 9-11, Mr. Pataki, or Mr. Bush (43) were such good leaders, shouldn't we at least have some office buildings rebuilt by now? Nothing, not even building in lower Manhattan, is as complicated as landing in the Sea of Tranquility.

    John is certifiably insane. Pay him no mind. They closedd the mental institutions and we have to bear with the idiotic birthers, deathers, obstructionists, haters, fear-mongers, etc. It's the AmeriKKKKan way.
