NY Daily News- Bush not joining Obama at Ground Zero over petty asshattery


My interpretation of course. Who the hell is Obama supposed to credit? Bush for giving up the hunt or the members of the dismantled Bin Laden Task Group he dismantled? Via Taegan-

George W. Bush won't be at Ground Zero with President Obama today "in part because he feels his team is getting short shrift in the decade-long manhunt for Osama Bin Laden," the New York Daily News reports.

Said a highly-placed source: "He viewed this as an Obama victory lap. He doesn't feel personally snubbed and appreciates the invitation, but Obama's claiming all the credit and a lot of other people deserve some of it."

Associates familiar with his thinking say Bush does not believe Obama or his handlers wanted to exploit his presence. But the tag-team idea "was for the benefit of Obama, and Obama withheld credit from people Bush believes deserved it," a source said.

    Looks like he is suffering a little under the green eyed monster.

  • If Bush had bothered to go, he would have had the perfect opportunity to give credit to those he believed deserved it.

  • When Bush comes out and apologizes for binging this country to the brink of total economic collapse allowing bin Laden to go free in Tora Bora, deregulating our oil industry so badly we've ended up with the largest oil spill in history (not to mention the 11 deaths), lying us into a war that costs us thousands of lives and trillions of dollars, Katrina and almost everything his administration put their filthy hands on, should we give him even 1% of the credit!
