President Bush Declines Invite From Community Organizer BC Challenged Obama To Go To Ground Zero ~ Good For Bush!!!!

Bush declines NYC invite

President George W. Bush has turned down President Barack Obama’s invitation to join him at ground zero on Thursday, citing his desire to avoid the media glare.

“President Bush appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight,” Bush spokesman David Sherzer told POLITICO in an email Tuesday night. “He continues to celebrate with all Americans this important victory in the war on terror.”

Obama — who has sharply criticized Bush for neglecting the hunt for bin Laden by invading Iraq — made the offer to Bush shortly after he decided on his New York trip, according to two people familiar with the situation.

Obama, who last visited the site as a presidential candidate in 2008!


Wild Thing's comment.........

So glad GW said NO. Obama would just use him and especially after all the blame Bush from obama, too much for too long.

What still gets me is how obama goes there now and has not been there since 2008 during his campaign. He is soooooooooooooooo horrible.

Bush was smart to say no especially in light of how Obama has used affairs like this to strike at others. He invited Rep. Ryan to an economic speech and then lashed out at his plan. At the correspondents dinner, him and his boy Seth Myers went after Trump. Obama would only use this venue to belittle or attack Bush.

GW Bush is a Man of Honor and chose not to criticize Obama, something Bill Clinton didn't afford Bush. As president, Bush never criticized Clinton and still hasn't. It's too bad neither Clinton or Obama have the integrity or honor Bush possesses.

Bush is doing exactly the right thing decling this invitation. He would just be a prop used by obama.

Despite W failing US miserably on not closing the southern borders, the Bush Family (41 & 43) have 100% CLASS and this is why we love George W and the other George W in 1776! F*CK Obamanation!
