How sad is this?
The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.
This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it's not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.

The administration's plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group's senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.
They view Sept. 11 as a "Republican" day because it focuses the public on supposedly "Republican" issues like patriotism, national security, and terrorism. According to liberals, 9/11 was long ago hijacked by Republicans and their enablers and unfairly used to bludgeon helpless Democrats at election time.

I think that would be very sad and I don't think it will go over well with those that lost loved ones in that horrible event. No doubt, some of the more rabid supporters that lost loved ones that day will blindly support anything this wolf in sheep's clothing pushes, but I think the majority would have a negative opinion of this type of agenda. It should be a day of mourning and remembering what was lost and how we got to where we are now.
Unfortunately it wouldn't surprise me if he pushed this. He doesn't seem to have a grasp on the blood, sweat and tears that helped form this country. He doesn't respect those that don't agree with him and criticize him. He is a weak leader and a weak patriot.
