Rev Al Sharpton: George W Bush Declined Obama’s Ground Zero Invite Since He’s ‘Clearly Embarrassed’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Al Sharpton, in a radio interview yesterday, praised President Obama’s “focused and laser mentality” for achieving the goal of killing of Osama bin Laden. Not only because he did “what George Bush was unable to do,” but also because Obama delivered on his own personal promise. Yet when the topic turned to President Bush, Sharpton’s praise abruptly ended.

Al Sharpton: “I think Bush was being Bush. Why wouldn’t Bush want to unite the country in what he claimed was his goal. Why wouldn’t he and others from his administration that are now clearly embarrassed that according to all intelligence Bin Laden was right there . . . I think that it tells us more about Bush than it does about Obama.”
