Bush should have gone to Ground Zero

May 08, 2011

Is former president George W. Bush ill? I was shocked when I heard that he declined president Obama's invitation to share the special moments at Ground Zero. I decided that he must be have some affliction that is keeping him out of the public eye. If true, he has my prayers.

If it is not, I am very disappointed! There is no excuse, other than a serious illness, for a former president of the United States to turn his back on his supporters , the dignity of the office of president, and the victory we are now celebrating. I was not fond of President Bush, but he was my leader, and I respected his presidency. If he is that uninterested in the spirit of this nation, than I am pleased that he chose not to attend the ceremony.
