Bush Snubs Obama's Ground Zero Invite

The circus surrounding Osama bin Laden's death continues today, as the NYT reports President Obama has invited former President Bush to visit Ground Zero with him, which Bush has declined to do.

"'President Bush will not be in attendance on Thursday,' said his spokesman, David Sherzer. 'He appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight. He continues to celebrate with Americans this important victory in the war on terror.'"

The visit will entail Obama visiting with families impacted by the 9/11 attacks.  I wonder why Bush has refused the invite-- maybe it's because last time Bush made a publicized visit to Ground Zero he practically promised to kill bin Laden with his bare hands?  Or maybe he just knows he says stupid shit in front of cameras and is tired of being made fun of on SNL.
