    Gee, I wonder why. I mean, he's famous and had all kinds of power for eight years and had the world's biggest charge card.

    Why wouldn't he be just as welcome as the daisies in May?

    As far as I'm concerned, Texasss can have him.

    If any Bush never attends another Republican convention then I'm okay with that. As far as I'm concerned, Dubya should go to the Democratic convention.

    I saw a headline a day or two ago. But if that's the scope then that's interesting.

    According to George W. Bush, himself. He is done with politics. He won't criticize a sitting president and no longer wants to be active on the political scene.

    I see no reason to disbelieve him. He doesn't like politics. Unlike democrats who are running away from obama.

    Democrats have no compelling need to attend their convention since Obama is already the incumbent nominee.

    Uh........that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. You do know more than just nominating a president goes on at the Conventions right? Have you been to one before, I have )
    Look man I know you would never say anything negative about Obama or democrats, hence why you're ass kisser number 2 after Moonglow, but it's a little more than just, hey it's not worth it,

    Aren't you the master apologist. You know damn well that the stakes are high. Such matters as attendance can't be ignored.
