9/11: Then and Now

In Bush, Obama, Open Thread on September 10, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Then:  The Strong and Brave.

“I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.” —George W. Bush

Now: The Weak and Capitulant.

“Let me be clear, as a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.  That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”—B. Hussein Obama

From the Boston Herald:

“Not a word about Islam’s unique role in the events of 9/11, no acknowledging that a mosque near the site of the attack would be provocative or insensitive. Instead, merely a defense of Manhattan’s zoning regulations.”
