    Bush Cites Gustav as Reason for Missing RNC

    That and that alone was the reason he stayed home.

    Well, that and republicans threatened to shoot him on sight if he tried to enter the arena. :rolleyes:

    I doubt that's the reason. They would have given him a standing ovation. And [B]that [/B]is why the McCain people don't want him there. It's pretty pathetic, tbh. A current president not welcome at his party's convention.

    I don't agree at all, to me, distancing themselves from Bush and picking Palin is the McCain's camp way of saying, "Hey, all you new voters, this isn;t your father's Republican ticket, check us out...."

    maybe if the man was not such a bumbling idiot. His has enough misquotes to last a life time.

    Tomorrow marks one of those outstanding quotes:

    "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

    Bush was scheduled to speak, as was Cheney. That is the reason he isn't there (although, he might be, depending on how bad the storm is during the rest of the week).

    I am glad that he did not have an opportunity to blemish this convention, although the means by which this happened were unfortunate.
    McCain has a chance this fall if he just stands clear and stays quiet for the duration of his term.

    You're delusional on this. If undecided voters see a huge crowd of McCain supporters looking like idiots by standing up and cheering their asses off for Bush, it's over, plain and simple.

    Jesus, it's lose-lose. If the guy goes to the convention, people would have been all over him for attending it rather than being there for yet another hurricane. If he doesn't go and attends to the hurricane, then McCain doesn't want him there and the Republicans are big meanies. Hilarious.

    If you consider McCain and Bush one and the same, then it's lose-lose. Otherwise, it's not a lose-lose. McCain wins if Bush doesn't go.
