Obama invited former President George W. Bush and former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani to hear him speak at the former site of the World Trade Center. Bush declined, and Giulianis status is unclear, but those are the kinds of guests one would invite for a major political event.

Hell, he has never stopped campaigning.
Good for Bush. So far he’s being a great former President, riding bikes to fund raise for wounded vets.
Yeap _ Obama is going to try to capitalize on the Intelligence Community’s success - and say it was his...it’s not - the IC works daily on location, tracking, targeting insurgents worldwide - it doesn’t matter who is the CIC - they are going to track these guys down one day or another...Obama is a sham and fraud!
and not trash-talking his successor
I'm sure he was really thinking that he didn't want to be a backdrop prop for ObaMao's boasting. But he had too much class to put it that way.
hopefully Rudy will do the right thing as well.
Bush knows that Obama will use him as a prop if he appears. Obama would say “me, me, me, i, i, i,” and not give Bush any credit except for him to stand there.

NO, you can’t insult Pres. Bush for yrs and then suck up for photos & vote.
This is outrages,BO going to Ground zero to take a bow! GW would not have done this at this point, yes he might have gone on SEPT 11/11 but not this Thursday.
And if Rudy G goes, he is only helping Obama. I guess Rudy misses the love so is seriously considering going.
Rudy helps BO if he attends.
Ya Rudy, go and campaign with your buddy BO as he takes a improper bow.
Hey maybe BO will ask Rudy to be his running mate ...roll eyes
Did BO have a accomplishment? I thought it was the military
Obama likes to invite people to events and then smear them, as Justice Alito and Rep. Paul Ryan well know.
Smart of Bush to pass on this.
FIRST time Obama is setting foot at Ground Zero.
He is a shameless campaigner and narcissist.....as far away from the character of George W. Bush that a human being can get.
STAY AWAY, MR. PRESIDENT. STAY AWAY!!
I so agree.
First smart decision Bush has made in quite some time.
To hell with that marxist muslim America-hating POS.
What point is the muzzie in chief trying to make by dancing on the graves of natural born Americans?
Agree....I can see Obama going on the 10th anniversary, but this is just plain wrong...campaigning!!
Class with a Brain. GHWB would probably show up if Bubba or BO asked , even after all the blame Bush politics that Barry has excelled at.
Class never means being used.
