    May God bless the president and Mrs. Obama; may He keep them safe as they go from place to place today to comfort so many with their presence and love. It will indeed be a long day for them. May they be encouraged and given the emotional and physical strength that they will need.

    They look wonderful. I’ve been tweeting my love and appreciation for our pres for killing bin Laden and keeping us safe.

    Happy BD to the birthday girl.

    OT: Pres O passed 10m twitter followers.

    Good morning, TODville. I want to wish those whose birthday fall on this day, a surrounding of the love of family and friends.

    This is going to be a hard day. I will take in the comfort of PBO and Mrs. O representing all of us in peace.

    Sincerest THANK YOU for being here for all of us, Chips.

    Good morning Chips & all TODers! Live coverage of the ceremonies everywhere on TV and ‘Net.

    Immediately on waking, I began praying for President Obama and Michelle, then for all the families and friends who were so directly touched by this horrible day. I know I’ll be praying off and on all day.

    The YouTube description says:

    Republican presidential Herman Cain pays tribute to the fallen of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 as he sings, “God Bless America.”

    And, of course it ends with “Herman Cain President 2012.”

    This is pathetic

    The president and FL are doing what they have to do, but I will be glad when this day is a wrap. I was relieved the further we got away from 9/11 when the yearly remembrance lessened, with just a respectful observance. But this 10 yr. anniversary has sent everyone overboard. It looks to me like the media is trying to provoke and take advantage of peoples’ emotions and vulnerabilities, with all the replays and funeral music etc. I couldn’t believe the photo on the front page of our paper. It was a family in 9/11 Never Forget matching t-shirts. Too much.

      I agree and they are doing this in an effort to create nostalgia for GWB and/or a Repub presidency. That’s exactly what they are doing and they know it.

        I have also noted that most of the interviews are with Bush era culprits—-lots of Guiliani and now even Karen Hughes etc.—–they’ve unearthed all of them—-all on a revisionist history mission with the media obliging. They keep zeroing in on Laura Bush crying. And the fear-provoking and the anti-Arab, anti-Muslim provoking—–I think it’s creepy and not helpful in the least.

        The whole thing has been incredibly disconcerting…

        The brazen revisionism and the resurrection of the culprits of some of the worst crimes against this country…

        May God continue to bless, guide, guard, instruct and defend President Obama and Mrs Obama…

        • September 11, 2011 at 10:10 am

          I have to agree Chi, and seeing Bush there turns my stomach. No mention of the pointless war he started in Iraq after 9/11 that cost thousands of Iraqi and American lives, when Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11. The guy should have stayed in Texas today, it’s where he belongs.

    I am certain they are nice young women but why are Bush’s daughters with him?

    This happened on August 3rd…2001. It was also ignored by the Bush Administration.

    Psalm 46 (New Revised Standard)

    1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. (Selah) 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. 5 God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns. 6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah) 8 Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 10 “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah)

    The President is holding FL’s hand from the time they left D,C. upon arrival. They are truly a loving couple. I have never seen a president do that in my life. She is truly PBO’s rock.

    Cain’s video represents the worst in wringing emotion out of the public for political gain–really bad use of the tragic event–shame on him!
