Let's see, he praised Bush for a smooth transition during a difficult time. That was entirety of his speech, he never blamed Bush or made any comments to that effect during the presentation. He also praised Bush on Haiti. The Bushes were gracious hosts toward the Obamas, and the Obamas have alway reciprocated.
This always looking for the stupid little negative spin on Obama is so... Sean Hannity/ Sarah Palin. Just makes the dopes who buy into it look like total freakin retards.
The former POTUS was welcomed and honored by the current POTUS to the WH. It was a nice American moment. Live with it and stop with the desperate looking for something to bash.
Your source attempted to take the quotes of context and put a little negative spin on the comments, but there were no 'digs', plain and simple.
Be well, friend.
"The months before I took the oath of office were a chaotic time," Obama told a crowd of mostly former Bush administration officials and members of the Bush family, including Bush's parents, former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush.
They had gathered in the East Room of the White House for an official ceremony -- one that has traditionally excluded politics -- unveiling the portraits of the 43rd president and his wife."
What is there that is so difficult to understand? It was uncalled for to go into Obama's little version of history at this event. He has the same sense of good form as Jimmy Carter, who bashes the other presidents without consideration.
The Bushes are polite people; Obama is not.
