The reason Bush won't show his ugly mug at ground zero

Aside from the fact that 911 happened on his watch even after an August Presidential Daily Briefing entitled "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in U.S."

A few skeletons in the closet Mr. Bush?

And from his own mouth he sealed his fate in history with the words: "I don't know where Osama bin Laden is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him to be honest with you … And I wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure. ..."

I could just see the crowd now with Obama and Bush standing there. One accomplished the goal that the other didn't care about. For Obama it's a political victory. For Bush it's nothing more than an economic one. For if you bothered to read the link you'd know that the Bush crime family is still making money hand over fist with oil and arms.

To the Arab world Bin Laden had become a liability anyway. Nothing like being suspect just because you're from the Middle East or even look like you're from there. And he certainly did no favors for the Muslim religion either.

As we go forward be mindful of the facts behind the scenes. The Saudis are not what they appear to be on the surface. Even though they are not the oil players they once were they're still able to do some back room dealing and have us jump through hoops at their whim. But I suspect there are a few other games going on while the celebrations continue. It always seems the perfect diversion for yet more underhanded shenanigans. So keep your eyes peeled.

Very interesting stuff.

I can think of three reasons Bush might not want to show up. First, Bush was booed at Obama's inauguration. It's an experience he has no intention of letting himself in for again.

Second, the Bush family apparently knows, and could consider themselves friends of, the bin Laden family. A desire to not generate hard feelings with the bin Ladens might explain a lot of things, from the epic fumbling at Tora Bora, when OBL could have and should have been captured, to Bush's remarkable lack of interest in getting OBL when he made that inane news conference statement.

And now, Bush showing up at a ceremony to, in part, mark the killing of OBL, might very well put him on the wrong side of the bin Laden family, like he's celebrating or gloating.

I'm keeping my eyes pealed for a sale on gun powder. Had a 25% off coupon last week but they only had one pound of the powder I wanted.

Oh well one pound is better than none.

He is the dumbest President in History not just the worst and most inept. I still refuse there were those stupid enough to elect him. Not just knowing him but his entire family history from Prescott on.

I think Bush didn't accept the invitation because the GOP doesn't want to show any kind of approval of Obama in any way. For Bush to show up could have been seen as the Republicans giving Obama a pat on the back, or as giving him credit for something. Especially something this momentous.

Bush made a gracious statement after the Seals got Bin Laden, and he was undoubtedly as glad as anyone else that Bin Laden was killed. But I also think the GOP (and Bush) did not want to have "the guy who didn't get Bin Laden" standing there next to "the guy who got Bin Laden".

In fact, I doubt that Bush would ever want to be photographed standing next to Obama.

American needed a new enemy after the collapse of the FSU. The Saudi funded Wahabbis have been instrumental in ensuring that the world sees Islam as the enemy. That is why the Saudis have never been fingered. It is beyond oil and investments.
Very interesting article. Why the Dems didn't haul the entire bush admin into court charged with a dozen crimes is beyond me. Unless they are just as complicit?
