President Obama is in NYC today if not to spike the football, to at least spend a little time in the end zone savoring the moment. The President will travel to Ground Zero for a wreath laying to mark Sunday's killing of Osama bin Laden by US commandos who stormed his Pakistan home.
This September is the tenth anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, so there will no doubt be heavy duty ceremonies then.
Today's ceremony was passed up on by Presidents Bush and Clinton who were invited. Maybe Jimmy Carter would have come.
The President has also taped an interview for 60 Minutes which will air Sunday.
On the one hand the White House won't release photos of the raid as it would inflame Muslim sensitivities, but then the President is on a media tour to keep attention from...the pesky deficit...
Today's trip to NYC is unnecessary and gratuitous.
