Obama Does Radio Interview on 9-11. No Mention of 9-11.

The headline speaks for itself. I tried hard not to get political today, but sometimes you have to call out insensitivity when you see it.

It started with Joe Biden’s reference to Flight 93 as a “bittersweet” memory (though some are giving him the benefit of the doubt on that one) and then it was The Onion joking about 9-11 on their site and twitter feed.

Now it’s learned that President Obama appeared on the DJ Laz Morning Show in Miami, FL and, although it was his first opportunity to speak publicly on the anniversary of 9-11, he spoke of the Miami Dolphins, he spoke of College Loan reform, he spoke of his campaign, but he left out the day that changed America forever.
