Politics muted on 9/11 anniversary

New York (CNN) - The mudslinging on the campaign trail will stop and at the Capitol, Democrats will stand with fellow Republicans in a moment of rare bipartisanship. Two acts that signal the solemnity of September 11.

Eleven years after the horrific terrorist attacks, Americans will again pause Tuesday to remember with words and tears.

    President Obama, I salute you for keeping us safe. Thank you for bringing our troops home from the unnecessary costly war in Iraq.

    It is appropriate on a day of national mourning to halt that kind of thing. It should also be done on 12/7, a day that will live in infamy. I am also willing to entertain other days as well.

    I am always struck by how President Obama WANTS to acknowledge the contributions and sacrifices of police, firefighters, emergency responders and all branches of the military. Mr. Romney consistently appears like he realizes he HAS to acknowledge these brave men and women ... and thus, his words and demeanor seem insincere and half-hearted.
