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.
