George W. Bush isn’t going, but I’ll bet a gallon of gas that Bill Clinton manages to wiggle his way into the spotlight on Thursday.
Former President George W. Bush has turned down President Barack Obamaâ€™s invitation to join him at ground zero on Thursday, citing his desire to avoid the media glare.
â€œPresident Bush appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight,â€ Bush spokesman David Sherzer told POLITICO in an email Tuesday night. â€œHe continues to celebrate with all Americans this important victory in the war on terror.â€
Part of me wanted Bush to show up with the bullhorn and yell “let’s hear it for waterboarding!” — But I know he’s too classy for that.
