Wingnut Blog Fail of the Day: ‘Bush Feels Slighted by Obama’

The outrageous outrage of the minute
Wingnuts • Views: 28,416

A New York Daily News anti-Obama article is spreading rapidly across the right wing blog echo chamber: Bush feels Obama ignoring ex-president’s role in Osama Bin Laden strike for ‘victory lap’: source.

The article by Thomas DeFrank quotes an unnamed “highly placed source” who says President Bush feels Obama is “claiming all the credit” for the Osama bin Laden operation, and that’s the real reason why Bush chose not to appear at the Ground Zero ceremony.

This, of course, is delicious red meat for people like Jim “Dim” Hoft (aka “Gateway Pundit”): Bush Wises Up… Won’t Be Prop For Obama’s Victory Lap | The Gateway Pundit

DERPBush wises up.
President Obama was wrong on waterboarding, renditions, the Iraq War, the Surge, Gitmo, military tribunals, and the Patriot Act. Now he wants to take full credit for getting Osama Bin Laden and wants to use George W. Bush as a prop.
Bush ain’t going for it.

The former president feels Obama is ignoring the Bush Administration’s role in the strike on the Osama Bin Laden compound. He won’t be a prop for Obama at Ground Zero today.

There’s just one teensy problem with this idiots’ narrative.

It’s completely false: Wife: Bush skips 9/11 NY event to keep low profile.

Laura Bush told The Associated Press on Thursday that she and her husband were out to dinner Sunday night when they received word that Obama wanted to speak with him. The former president went home to take the call informing him that U.S. military forces had killed Osama bin Laden in a raid of his compound in Pakistan, Laura Bush said.

The former first lady told the AP that her husband declined an invitation to attend Thursday’s event in New York because “that’s for President Obama to do at this point.”

She said she and her husband both felt great pride for military and intelligence personnel after hearing the news.

“It was risky and it was dangerous for our members of the military,” Laura Bush said at a Dallas elementary school where she announced grants from her foundation for school libraries.

It’s easy to predict the reaction, though; the claim that Bush’s feelings were hurt because he got short shrift from President Obama will become an impervious right wing article of faith, an eternally repeated factoid.
