Talk about awkward.
When President Obama hosts former President George W. Bush at the White House on Thursday to unveil his predecessors official portrait, hell pay tribute to the man whom he has blamed lately for everything short of an outbreak of the flesh-eating virus.
The war in Iraq? An unnecessary and costly diversion that was Mr. Bushs fault, according to Mr. Obama.
The worst recession since World War II? The president says Mr. Bush and the GOP are to blame.
Soaring deficits? Mr. Obamas mantra is that he inherited the red ink from the Republican.
The Wall Street collapse? See Bush, George W.
Loss of Americas prestige in the eyes of the world? Mr. Obama has laid that allegation on Mr. Bushs doorstep, too.
At a fundraiser in California last week, Mr. Obama used Mr. Bush as his foil to raise more money for his re-election campaign. The president began by criticizing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for planning bigger tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, deep cuts in funding for education and Medicare, and deregulation of the banking and insurance industries.
But thats not new, Mr. Obama told the crowd. That was tried, remember? The last guy did all this.

obama-a real man /sarc
I expect W will be his usual, gracious self at this meeting when he really should give Zero a couple of pokes in the chops.
They both looked uncomfortable together —
Obama isn’t fit to shine President Bush’s shoes.
They can brag to each other about their own out of control government spending.
Obammy is a marxist metrosexual punk.
GWB looks like he might be saying “I could kick your skinny butt!”
I wonder if Obama will say something classless and or inappropiate?
Bush probably thinks the same of Obama as he does with Adam Clymer.
Who will post that pic of Cheney giving the hairy eyeball to the chosen one at the immaculation.
Of course... do you really have to ask? ;-)
Amen to that Buzz.
One of the biggest complaints of Bush I have is his desire to be above it all, and he ends up just looking out of touch.
I wish he would lay into Oabama for four years of blaming him and him alone for all the country’s problems.
God knows it is overdue.
Whoever snapped that pic needs to get a Presidential Freedom Medal.
