Skip to comments.Presidents Bush to Skip Obama Inaugural
Posted on 01/18/2013 4:13:23 PM PST by traumer
Former President George W. Bush does not plan to attend President Obamas second inauguration on Monday, joining his father, former President George H.W. Bush, among the living former presidents who are sending regrets, according to several officials with knowledge of inaugural planning.
The decisions mean Obamas second oath of office will occur with only Democratic former presidents sharing the stage. Both former President Bill Clinton and former President Jimmy Carter plan on attending.
The younger President Bush is citing his fathers health in declining the invitation to attend, according to the officials. The older Bush, who is 88, was just released from the hospital this week after an extended illness. President and Mrs. Bush wish President Obama and his family all the best for a wonderful inaugural weekend, said a spokesman from the younger President Bushs office Friday.

I’m sure it was STRICTLY a schedule conflict......
I'm thankful that the elder Bush is out of the hospital and apparently back in good health.
Bill Clinton will be seated in the intern section. Party!
His political payback.
Good. I wouldn’t be seen dead there either. Others should boycott it.
Great excuse by Dubya. Reading between the lines, what he actually said “I’ve kept my mouth shut for 4 years but don’t make me puke by being in the company of commie bastards”.
That’s OK, I plan to miss it too!
That’s OK, I plan to miss it too!
Thats OK, I plan to miss it too!
-——————————————————————————————Me too. Regretfully the cat box is scheduled to be cleaned.
Darn the luck. I can’t make it either. Wonder how much taxpayer $$$ they’re spending on this? Hope it snows...hard. ;o)
Good time to clean the cat’s litterbox.
Second CORONATION, ya mean?
I wasn’t invited....
But if I WAS, I wouldn’t go!
Yup, pardon the language by this is a giant “f*ck off” by someone who knows how to do so diplomatically.
And diplomacy is the art of telling someone to go to Hell in a way that makes them look forward to the trip.
Do not tune in to see this demon take the throne. Do not give this abomination good TV ratings.
Be a real shame if something happened to spoil things . . .
I think I have to poop that day, sorry.
Actually, it would. Other than the obvious human tragedy issue, it would make an even larger portion of dumb America think Obama was a hero and patriot. Look at how the lying, cheating, POS JFK is remembered.
We weren’t thinking of violence. But it would be kind of interesting if Obama had a nervous breakdown in the middle of the festivities, or Michelle finally cut loose and decked him, or something else dreadful and dramatic that they couldn’t explain away.
“Me too. Regretfully the cat box is scheduled to be cleaned.”
My toenails need clipped.
That would be worth tuning in for. I just wish the media would do their job, because there would be a scandalous and humiliating story on Obama twice a day if they did.
“Be a real shame if something happened to spoil things . . .”
Paging Vince Flynn......
. . This, too, shall pass. :o)
I am sick to my stomach and also won’t be attending.
jch10 and family will not be attending either.
“Im sure it was STRICTLY a schedule conflict......”
I actually believe you cannot tear him away from his father and his family right now. I would like to believe that he would never come after the crowd sand “ Nah nah nah, Hey Hey Hey Good Bye”, as a nice swipe at obama such people who support him. However, I know he would actually come if he really could, because he believes its the right thing to do.
I like the presidents Bush more and more..........
Well, that is really this time Bush’s fault!
Darn, I can’t watch or attend as I have “clean carpet with tooth brush” on my calendar.
Me too I think I have a bowel movement schedule during the Coronation of King Obama
Supposed to be a high of 34 and wind Monday.
That kind of weather gives me digestive tract anomalies.
I’ll be home putting voodoo dol...uh, wood in the stove.
I would love for obama to make some comment that soclearly shows how much he really hates the American people that the media cannot explain it away.
“....in the company of commie bastards.
Bush could have saved the nation from this commie bastard had he divulged Obama’s ineligibility for his office.
Does Obama have the goods on Bush?
Molon labe signs, etc?
The “others” are Clinton and Carter. They fit right in.
I was going to watch it on TV, but my wife has some paint she wants me to watch dry.
When Michelle sent me the invitation to the inauguration I regretfully had to turn it down. I was planning on spending the day at the Martin Luther King museum in New York. Now I come to find it is closed for MLK day! ;)
Then muttered an additional "bless his heart."
A war between certain groups?
I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Manson was/is INSANE.
I send my regrets, too. :)
Too bad we all couldn’t be there. There should be myriads and myriads of protestors compaired to attenders.
See post #44.
I’d rather see Molon labe signs all over the place along the streets.
Hey how about that...I’m skipping it too!
