    Bush declines Obama invitation to go to ground zero

    Bush declines Obama invitation to go to ground zero

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama plans to visit New York City on Thursday to mark the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

    NBC News reported that Obama invited former President George W. Bush to attend the event but Bush does not plan to attend.
    I guess he has brush to clear...

    I say send a Seal team to the ranch, pick W. up, and bring him to Manhattan.

    Not sure why Bush would take part in such an event. It will be, at some level, a political event and it's easy to see why Bush would not attend.

    Bush the elder. He would be my choice too.

    Why would Bush ingratiate himself like that? This was Obama's victory.

    It was also part of Bush's as well. But I just think President Bush is just trying to continue to stay out of the spotlight.

    You know what? AS much as I would like to say a liberal won this pissing match, the truth is that it was simply that the opportunity came along with Obama president. Obama really only gets credit in that he was the president when the opportunity came along.

    If you read the article it says Bush would prefer to go to Ground Zero in 9/11 for the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Obama didn't get the job done, the military did and both Bush and Obama contributed to the military's success.

    When I said this is Obama's victory, I was being kind of tongue in cheek (which doesn't translate well online). The general public is going to think that Obama is the man of the hour. Keen observers will know better but... you have to think of this on a simpler level when it comes to the masses.
