  1. True Patriot Says:

    True. Bush was smart to decline. Good for him.

    Appears everyone is rejected the Usurper Obama these days.

    The Obamas were even uninvited to the Royal Wedding.
    William said they did not want the Obamas to attend and steal his bride’s wedding day.

    These frauds are hated throughout the world and a complete embarrassment and disgrace.

    Sorry to get a bit off subject but it all ties back in to Bush’s decision not to be used by this fraud.

  2. Big Frank Says:

    Former Pres. Bush like him or not has always acted like a gentleman, and has not second guessed or made any comments concerning the present administration.

  3. Silvana Says:

    Good for Mr.Bush, I was praying for that answer, always thinking of you all Mr. Bush and miss you very much.Let Obama be in the spotlight, that is where he belongs.

    I believe that GWB already had plans to visit to ground zero on the tenth anniversary coming up in September.

  5. CavMom Says:

    I greatly appreciate the fact that former President Bush continues to serve this country on his own time, without announcing intentions to the media, hence avoiding making his acts silly circus events which are all about him. Class Act
