Obama Ground Zero Thread: What Happened Sunday Sent a Message Around the World, but It Also Sent a Message Back Home

I think he means that in some kind of "good way" but of course my gloss is "We sent a message that people should vote Democrat."

Condescending Elitist Media Alert: Speaking to a firefighting chief who received Obama, a member of the media actually asked him this question:

"Did you have concerns about the men's behavior in a formal setting?"

Yes, that's right -- the chief was just asked by a member of the media whether or not he feared his "men" would be able to refrain from throwing feces in a "formal setting."

A Few Quotes: He actually didn't give a formal address, unless I missed it. He just greeted the families and dignitaries there. No microphones. Then bowed his head for a moment of silence.

His quotes come from previously meeting firemen; microphones and cameras ran there. His most noteworthy quote was "When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say." He also said it didn't matter what party or what administration was in charge. Which is debatable.
