    Neither does W. That's another reason he ain't going.

    Yes, because MediaMatters said so. Gotcha. Regardless, it was the military's victory and both Bush and Obama deserve some credit but not all of it.

    It wouldn't have been Obama. I know enough about this subject to understand how things work

    I didn't blame Clinton for not "catching" Eric Rudolph nor did I praise Bush was Rudolph being captured on his watch

    That's the only thing I can think of too...

    I half way agree with you. Bush invaded Iraq, and it seemed like nobody cared about finding Bin Laden anymore... including Bush. I honestly thought we'd never get him.

    You could describe most of the national disasters taken on by and triumphs claimed by pretty much every modern President that way.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Re: Bush declines Obama invitation to go to ground zero

    Honestly, I don't get the entire concept of going to Ground Zero to commemorate the death of bin Laden. I could've sworn the nation had it's day of singing and dancing already, and I could've sworn that Obama had his opportunity to address the nation on the subject already.

    I think it would be far more appropriate to save it for a brief mention in a commemorative speech given four months from now.

    Bush has the right idea.

    Bush hasn't made a big appearance in America since he left office... If Bush did accept the invite, it would be weird just to see him again. I wonder if he'll ever make a big appearance again.

    Former Presidents tend to stick to lending support to campaigns and pet causes, or back-room diplomacy.
