Apparently, as with so many other things, some people who hold the Presidency have class and some don’t. To all appearances, former President George W. Bush is the former, and current President Barack Obama is the latter, at least if this afternoon‘s unveiling of former President Bush’s Presidential portrait is any guide.
This event – which is, at least in theory, supposed to be free of partisan sniping, got an earful of just that when President Obama gave his introductory remarks welcoming Bush:
President Obama on Thursday twisted the knife he‘d stuck in his predecessor’s legacy, reminding former President George W. Bush that he left the economy a mess and al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden alive when he left the White House three years ago.
It’s Barack Obama’s house now, but his predecessor and political foil, George W. Bush, stole the show at the White House on Thursday with his wisecracks and grin.
“The president reveals he gave the order to shoot down planes on September 11 — and at first thought the plane in PA had been shot down,” reports Matt Drudge in an exclusive story about George W. Bush’s upcoming book Decision Points, set to be released on November 9.
As we have documented for years, all the evidence indicates Flight 93 was shot down. Here’s a summary of evidence.
