THE ZERO WON'T COME TO GROUND

Inviting George Bush to the Ground Zero ceremony is in line with President Obama's efforts to bring the country together. I won't speculate on the reasons for Bush's refusal; but he must be aware that many Republicans are trying to diminish Obama's success in bringing down Bin Laden by lathering their praise on George W. while ignoring the President's efforts entirely.
In the name of closing the yawning, partisan gap between the administration and the gaggle of mean spirited ignoramuses and self-inflating hucksters who remain the dominant mouthpiece of the GOP, I would advise President Bush to come to New York and stand beside the man who finished the job he began.
