Bush passes on Ford funeral to cut brush in Texas

The wingnutia were in a uproar a couple of days ago when Harry Reid and his delegation announced they were going to be on a scheduled trip to meet with leaders in South America and wouldn't be able to attend the service in DC for President Ford. How horrible they roared. Reid would rather be sightseeing at Incan ruins than showing respect to a former president. I mean, everybody knows the local tourist sites should never be part of the itinerary for a state visit. It's not like Incan ruins have more historical importance than say Graceland.

So how interesting the right wing screech machine is strangely silent now that it appears their man Bush will refuse to cut short his vacation just to attend a silly state funeral on the doorstep of his house. That brush on the ranch isn't going to cut itself you know and besides, the prez can just go to the Tuesday ceremony, which conveniently won't interrupt his holiday. You know he hates it when his holiday is interrupted by messy realities so what's a little insulting breach of protocol? It's not like Bush isn't paying attention. I guess he just needs to crisp up his mind again.

I thought for sure I saw President Bush speaking today at the funeral service. How can that be?

Hey Bubblehead. Yeah he showed up on Monday or Tuesday but there was nobody there of importance to receive Ford's body when it arrived. Reading about how they're scrambling to find bodies to fill the seats , I thought it was very sad and disrespectful.

It's not like he couldn't have popped up in AF1 for a couple of hours. He's done it fundraisers.
