Who cares! Stay the hell away from the spotlight George W Bush! You messed everyone's life!! Nice to know you can afford to go out and have a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant with your wife.

I'm sure that's the polite excuse, but the reality is why embarrass yourself standing next to this fraud. If he's true to form he'll use the opportunity to score zingers to the nutjobs like "hello". Blame G.W. for every one of his failures and take credit for things he had nothing to do with. Bush has more right to be at this event then Barry ever will.

I think it was a very Classy Move by bush.

Why Take Credit for what our men and women in the Military

Did, WHo have worked for over Four Years to capture and

Kill This Muslim Terrorist who killed 3000 americans in

One Day.

God Bless Our Troops

Bush like obama may not be good at math

But at least He doesn't need to stroke his ego

And is just happy knowing that the troops did their

Job and the killer was finally captured.

Yes, this is an interesting concept isn't it? The Bushites want credit for destroying bin Laden but do not want credit for ruining our economy and ruining our standing in the world.

Funny how that works!

That partisan Liberal mumbo jumbo isn't working anymore moron.
This is Obama's economy, higher gas prices, over regulation, lack of job creation. And just think, he is continuing all the things he ran on to discontinue, which were Bush positions. It seems that once you sit in that seat in the Oval Office it brings true perspective of what is right.

He didn't go because he is detested by alot of the family members that lost loved ones on 9/11. G.W. Bush and his administration are responsible for what happened on 9/11...along with many other atrocities that I won't go into...for once he did the right thing

Obviously I deserve the credit for Bin Laden's killing but I prefer to rest on my laurels, sip on some Jack Daniels, think of the noose around Saddam Hussein's neck, and all the executions I signed for death warrants as Governor of Texas.
A class act

Obama could have invited Bush or Charlie Sheen....both declared victory while life around them was going down the crapola....

At least Charlie has a pair of goddesses to ease his pain....

Not a member of the tea pary. Are you a member of the liberal bigot party? Fox does more research in 20 seconds than you will in your government controlled lifetime. I'm sure you got the maddow email about McCain starting the Forristal fire!

What's the difference between a Democrat and a prostitute? The prostitute gives value for the money she takes.
