Mr. Bush couldn't make it to New York.
He had a previously scheduled farting contest with Dick Cheney at the Crawford Ranch.

Bush thought Cheney was going to be there and he did not want to take a chance Cheney may shot him by mistake.

The moron probably can't find ground zero. He's done way to much for the country already.

Yep, I know the feeling. That is precisely why I was afraid to show up also back then! Thought I may shoot (or is it SHOT) the wrong Custer! Being a man of color, they NEVER wished to show up on stage with me. They did NOT want to ruin their reputation by appearing with me, a dumb phony colored leader, since I was such a very poor leader of my people. Can't really blame them though!!!
