Presidents George W. Bush & Barack Obama with First Ladies Visit the 9/11 Memorial in NYC on the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terror Attacks
This morning Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, accompanied by their First ladies and their family, visited the hallowed area of ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial on the 10th anniversary of that fateful morning, September 11, 2001.
During this mornings 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in NYC as the names of the fallen were read, the bells tolled for a moment of silence six times his morning at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, DC and a field in Shanksville, PA, to commemorate the moments when the four planes crashed and the two Twin Towers fell 10 years ago. During this mornings ceremonies Presidents Bush and Obama were side by side; however, it was GWB who got the cheers and applause and rightfully so. Even those who never voted for W know he did a fantastic job in the days, weeks and years following 9/11.
The presidents both recited readings to the crowd. Obama read Psalm 46, which starts, “God is our refuge and strength,” while Bush read a letter by Abraham Lincoln, saying, “the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.”
Both men departed after the readings to go to other ceremonies in Pennsylvania and Washington.
George W. Bush, Laura Bush, Barack Obama & Michelle Obama personally shake hands and hug family members who lost loved ones on 9/11 at the waterfalls of the 9/11 Memorial
God Bless the victims, our fallen heroes and the families of 9/11.

n reflection upon the Anniversary of 9/11~~
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Please remember all the first responders, all the victims of 9/11, their families and all the dedicated workers who stayed at Ground Zero until every last piece of debris was cleared, every family member identified.
*~* WE WILL NEVER FORGET ~*~
“it was GWB who got the cheers and applause and rightfully so. Even those who never voted for W know he did a fantastic job in the days, weeks and years following 9/11.”
Uhh, do you mean by letting Osama Bin Laden get away, lying about WMD and invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11? Yeah, he was awesome.
SM: Sorry Mike, but are you going to say that the families that lost loved ones on 9/11 are wrong? They are the ones who cheered him and this was in NYC where most likely none of these folks probably voted for him or his father. They gave him applause for his handling of the days, weeks and months following 9/11. Sorry if you have that much hate that you cannot see it.
Obama talks about inheriting the economy. Guess what else Obama inherited … the GWB war on terror and all the intelligence that was gathered. The families of 9/11 know that and that is why he received applause. What one single thing did Obama do to gain the intelligence to nab Bin Laden? Had he, we certainly would have been told over and over and over.
You cant have revisionist history to the events that took place 10 years ago. History will show that GWB did the right thing. He started the ball moving in the war on terror. Imagine if we had done this after the first Trade Center bombing, how many terrorist wouldn’t be coming down for breakfast.
Just as Biden and Clinton said in Shanksville over the weekend, W united America. I know it hurts those of you on the LEFT, but it is the truth.
Sorry, but your argument makes no sense whatsoever. “…most likely none of those folks voted for him…” Do you actually think everyone in NY is a Democrat? And are you actually trying to credit GWB for the killing of Bin Laden? Wow. The truth is, I have no hate for the man. As a past president, I think he deserves a certain level of respect and I have no problem with him receiving applause from the 9/11 families or anyone else. But I’m not willing to let the emotions of the day revise his record as president, as you clearly are. Yesterday was not a political day. People on the left and right were hurt equally by the events of 9/11. You are the one who has made it political. And btw – why does LEFT need to be capitalized?
It’s clear which side our friend Mike is on. The terrorists’.
I vividly remember GWB walking out of the chopper across the White House lawn with purpose upon his return to Washington. He was not afraid, but in a hurry to get back to his office and run the country. My guess is Barack would have been cowering in his hidy-hole under the White House if not already somewhere in an underground bunker in the mid-west shaking in his shoes.
No one knew where all the terrorist were, if they were in a position to take the president out from some nearby building or what. Yet he strode unphased when (I read later) his security advisors did not want him in the open. He refused to hide because he said the American people needed to see him.
The big difference between Zero and GWB is that GWB LOVES America and the principles it is based on from the onset. Zero? He loves power and anyone who is out to change America from what it is and has always been meant to be. A FREE country without government bondage that is full of people who want to make a life for themselves with hard work and sacrifice. Least GW has a heart for America. Zero, never.
poor lefties . such sad waste of oxygen.
Yeah, I’m on the terrorists’ side. You’re a moron. It’s a waste of my oxygen to even try to have an informed debate with you idiots.
SM: Spoken like a true LEftist elitist who can’t get his way and loses the debate.
Who made it political, are you really that delusional? Stating fact is now a crime, I guess it is when the Holy One Barack Obama takes a back seat. Yes, GWB was cheered and rightfully so. He deserves some credit. That’s mighty big of you. Sorry, it was Clinton, Biden and Obama who stated the other day that he did. So coming from you, that really means a lot.
History will be the proof and it will show that W did the right thing. You might want to check your revisionist history and see what the intelligence agencies in the US and all over the world were saying back then.
Sorry, thank God Bush was the President if 9/11 had to take place. He is a leader, not a community organizer.
mike the terrorist…you dimwit leftist pig.
It’s idiots like you who question the government and call out all these alleged lies, etc except when it on your terms.
Do you really believe the 9/11 Commission Report which was done by people in Congress? LOL…Tool…
You’re a naive fool to think that there were no WMD’s. There is evidence they were moved to Syria before the invasion. And even if there were no WMD’s are you saying Bush deliberatly lied?
And you’re also a naive twit to think that IRAQ had no hand in the 9/11 attacks? Fool…do you know how many Al Qaeda fighters were in Iraq before the invasion.
See this is where you moronic twisted leftist libtard brain fails you….look at a map idiot. Who’s in the process of making nuclear weapons and has openly claimed they are going to wipe Israel off the map? Geez…where is Iraq located in relation to Iran and Afghanistan?
And of course an idiot such as yourself would say Bush let Bin Laden get away when in fact he tried his damnest to kill him. IMO, the Bin Laden killing was done to prompt up Obama because his numbers are/were falling so fast (and still so).
Bush received more ovation and cheer because normal thinking people loved Bush; because he is a man of conviction right or wrong; while Obummer lies through his teleprompter more than the boy who cried wolf.
Sorry idiot, the LIBTARDS like you made it political. Watch all the MSM and OMSNBC and the Clinton News Network.
Hey loser; you know so much; how about Clinton is the one who on TWO occassions had a chance to take OBL and failed to do so because he worried about getting hummers from fat interns!
It sucks for libtards like you who can’t use facts and logic but rather violent means of attacks by words or by physical action because you have no other leg to stand on.
I’d love for one of those union thugs to step on my lawn…I’d shoot them on the spot and NOT do anytime.
Go leap off a bridge libtard as you are the one wasting oxygen the rest of us need.
And yes….61% of Whites voted for Obama and that was the difference….
He’s done in 2012 and you know it and you hate it, so eat it beeyatch!
