    To the bolded part: Dude, WTF are you talking about?

    Am I the only one who believes that this could be seen two ways. One, that over time his interest in one man subsided, and another, that Bush, in saying he didn't care about Bin Laden, was illegitimizing him in the eyes of the world? Basically saying "he doesn't matter?"

    I dunno, Bush fycked up in Tora Bora. I've had a military guy I know personally who was there tell me that.

    Bush won't attend mainly because he actually practices good post president's etiquette, unlike one we have had in the past.

    Where have you been "dude" that you don't know about the ties between the Bush family and the Bin Laden family? He was protecting Osama Bin Laden either because he wanted to or for some other unknown reason including possibly total ignorance

    Let's get the facts straight. Lets give Obama credit just like we give Ronald Regan credit for tearing down the Berlin wall. They both were that "final push" but they are not in anyway the end all of it. Hence, this is why Obama invited Clinton and Bush to the ceremony because this was their fight too. Anyone that tries to paint this in large favor for democrats or republicans is just a blind fool.

    Since when does the president have any power over whoring the media? The media covers/swings in opinion towards whoever they want, and whatever sells. If the media supports obama, thats probably because a majority of their viewers supports obama...if the media hates on Obama....thats probably because the majority of their viewers hate on Obama. Just like Fox news HATES Obama, so do their viewers...because their station appeals to a small majority of anti-government conservatives. Very simple to understand really. Obama has nothing to do with this....anyone who has a view like this obviously has allowed their Obama hate to cloud their logical thinking. You think Obama constructed this whole issue for election reasons? You are HIGHLY mistaken my friend. The media covers whatever and whomever they want. The news has changed alot over the past 10 years. They no longer just report on the news, they also report on what their opinions are, and this actually really offends me. I dont need someone to tell me that Obama is a great president, or Obama is a terrible president, I can make those decisions on my own...

    This is why I can only watch the news for about 30 minutes a night anymore. They no long report on real hard issues, its just all about conspiracy and why not and what if issues. When I watch the news, I want to know the FACTS and not the conspiracy bull****. The media fuels these damn conspiracy theories with their "Why has Obama not released the photos?" "Why has Obama taken credit for this killing?"

    This can be a very dangerous situation for the American people. Some people are just not capable of drawing their own opinions.

    Although when prior presidents have a disagreement in policy or belief with his predecessor, etiquette dictates that prior president decline a invitation if he or she has any doubt about holding his or her tongue.

    Bush won't attend because he doesn't want to be the "guy who didn't get OBL" standing next to the "guy that did get OBL"
