Apparently Obama had a previously planned trip to NYC and he has decided to lay a wreath at Ground Zero. There White House word is: Following the killing of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Obama plans to mark the occasion by visiting the most famous site of bin Laden's destruction.
This is Obama’s first visit to Ground Zero since being elected. He will also have a private meeting with family members of 911 victims. Anyone who thinks this is NOT completely political, please raise your hand. Thank God Bush declined to play politics and give Obama credence for this event. Remember….
IN 2009, Obama avoided a racial controversy on Memorial Day by sending wreaths to separate memorials for Confederate soldiers and for blacks who fought against them during the Civil War. [flutters from the MSM]
In 2010, he skipped the Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington entirely in favor of making a speech in Chicago, which God washed out. His 2011 Memorial Day plans are as yet unannounced.
As an aside, Obama will have a CAT scan as part of his annual physical – he may have dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back.
