God forbid people take the time to listen to Bush talk the few times he has since leaving the Presidency, but if you'd step out of your stereotypical bubble you'd likely realize the reason for him not. He has stepped out of the political spectrum primarily. This is Obama's show and he doesn't want to be intruding in on it, popping his face up constantly, having the media start going into back and forths with them, etc. He's content with his 8 years in, was happy for the opportunity, has shown immense class in refusing to attack or degrade Obama during this entire time, and generally is staying in the background and letting things go forward. He likely doesn't want to be there because he knows it'll cause a big ruckus and get a lot of attention, and its not his place to be that any longer in his mind.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.

FLASHBACK 2008: McCain, Clinton Slam Obama For Saying He'd Go Get Bin Laden In Pakistan (VIDEO) | TPMDC
Then, you can throw in the huge political risk Obama took. Had this failed in the manner the hostage rescue of 1979 failed, it would assure him as a one-term president. He never would have recovered.... A cruise missile strike would have been the safe answer. Sorry, you have a long way to go to convince anyone that McCain would have done the same thing. The record says otherwise.

"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
