Is it odd that none of the Bushies have been invited to the RNC in Tampa? Seems Raisin Brain is in hiding these days. Given Mitten's recent verbal gaffes, you would think he'd LOVE to have Dubya stammer around, just to make him look better, if nothing else.
Bush had this to say in a July 18 interview with the Hoover Institution uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday:
"I don't want to undermine our President -- whoever's President -- and a former President can do that. Either you're in or out of politics. ... You can't be that halfway."
[you can't be that halfway? Is that like "you can't take the high road and claim the low horse? Gawd I miss him!]
"Look, eight years was awesome," he continued. "You know, I was famous and I was powerful, but I have no desire for fame and power anymore. I have found that life after the presidency is awesome," Bush said during the hour-long sit-down.
Near the tail end of the interview--taped near the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, slated to open to the public in 2013--Bush was asked why he chose to vacation in Crawford, Texas, rather than Maine like his father. "My dad bequeathed me three great gifts," Bush said. "An awesome name, an unconditional love and being raised in West Texas."

One guess as to what Dim Son's word-of-the-day calendar was on July 18.
Neither Pappy nor Brunhilda, er Barbara will be in attendance, either. Naturally, Jeb is on the guest list, but you have to wonder if Mittens' minions will let him in the door ... he could upset their entire applecart.
