  1. Wow! A fast 20 minutes to “tour” and then a (probably) brief speech and off to lunch with a Fat Cat!

    I read elsewhere that the flight back to the WHy will be his 1,000th and that Bush used AF1 some 1,600+ times. And I wanted to say, “Obama’s got another two years! Don’t hold your breath!”

    • Thanks for the link, but no thanks. Some time ago, i started watching a documentary about 9/11 and couldn’t finish it.
      It’s just too soon, it’s too awful, and stuck in my head.

      How anyone could even visit such a place, no matter how thoughtful or careful the presentation. is a mystery.
      IMO, a simple memorial of some kind on the site would have been enough.

      • I agree . Tough stuff. I cannot bring myself to watch or visit. My personal preference runs with the simple memorial.

        The Vietnam War Memorial is strong. And I hear Oklahoma City is also very profound.

        All those lives lost. And the men at Benghazi as well. Barack Obama disappeared as they die.

        So the hypocrisy of this man going to this memorial on this day is stomach turning to me.

        • Especially knowing that by attending this event, we helped pay for his trip to those fundraisers. How convenient for him.

          Of course, downtown will be in lockdown, they don’t care about that either.

          • I don’t quite see the connection betw the speech and Benghazi–maybe just a connection of distaste for this president, which is something, I guess. Still….

      • OT. Here is part of a speech by the new Exec. Editor NYT.

        When it was his turn to speak, Baquet said: “There are too many people for me to thank for this 40-year career, too many people who helped support a young black southerner whose parents had only grade-school educations and who became addicted to newspapers through the daily accounts of the ups and downs – mostly downs – of the fledgling New Orleans Saints.” (Daily Beast)

        He has good credentials as a journalist and apparently also co won a Pulitzer.

        But somehow that pales with the first AA in this position. He should watch his back however when the new flavor of the month comes along. JA was the first woman.

  2. So who tried to shut down Michelle Malkin last night? Google Google chrome? Dems?
    I was trying to check comments on MOTUS, when suddenly a screen flashed with “Malware” warning for the site ahead, which, it went on to say, “has been infected with malware fom the site of michhelemalkin.com, a known purveyor (distibutor?) of malware.
    Other engines worked, but not chrom.
    MOTUS has repaired her site – haven’t been on michellemalkin.com yet this a.m.

    • No joke. Nothing worse than a boring speech, but hey, it put taxpayers on the hook, so why not?

      Anyway, for what it’s worth:

      Was at the VNV Nation show in Alexandria, Virginia, last night. The opener was Whiteqube, and toward the end of his set, he yelled, “I want you guys screaming so loud Obama can hear you in the White House!” Evidently, dude didn’t know the fundraiser-in-chief was up in New York. Crowd did get loud, though–my ears are still ringing the next day.

      VNV was awesome, too. I made the mistake of being on the dance floor when they got into “Chrome”, and that was more self-preservation than moving to the beat. And yes, they did sing the song “Darkangel,” and as you may well imagine, I highly enjoyed that. The set wrapped up with “Nova,” followed straightaway by “Perpetual.” I don’t know how long we sang, “Let there be, let there always be, neverending light,” but I had no tears left before it was over.

      I found Ronan Harris after the show and told him that he’d just saved my life. I don’t want to get into a lot of details, but I’m in a really bad place in my life right now. Operation American Spring hits DC tomorrow, and it would have been very, very easy for me to just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      I’m not going to do that, though. I got myself into this, and I’m going to get myself out of it. I don’t know how, but I will.

      But that’s a whole other discussion. As you were, guys…

  3. There’s just something so, so wrong that the museum meant to remind of the horrors of Islamic terrorism is dedicated by the one man who has done more to erase the term from our memory.
