To try to get his moment in the sun and wallow in his perceived glory with Bush as a guest. Bush is much too smart to become part of the Obama "victory" circus.

He'll never experience the raw emotion that greeted President Bush following the downing of the Towers. He'll never be the man that President Bush is.

Why would Bush go. Obama has a habit of inviting people and then bashing them, to their face. Think, Paul Ryan and the Supreme Court.

It is pretty predictable....most of these folks simply come on here to entertain themselves with short little "shots" which I am sure they find so very funny..never a fact...never anything but smart cracks about other people. I suppose it must be nice to be on such a lofty perch looking down on all the schmucks.

They actually call people names..people who they could never measure up nor achieve as much, nor be even in the ballpark as a human being. My experience with people who have little pet names for people they dont like or disagree with is mostly with losers and children. I suppose that is what makes up what they call a troll on the net...looked up the definition...

TROLL...."v.) (1) To deliberately post derogatory or inflammatory comments to a community forum, chat room, newsgroup and/or a blog in order to bait other users into responding.

(2) To surf the Internet.

(3) To hang around a chat room reading the posts instead of contributing to the chat.

(n.) One who performs any of the above actions.

IT REALLY FITS THESE FEW who simply call out the names they think is so funny. Do you recall these kids in grade school ?

Bucco -

I thought a troll was one of the people who is in the troll booths on the Florida Turnpike.

Hope you had a great day in The Villages, Bucco, my friend. Just so many great things to do everyday. I played golf at Hawkes Bay and did reasonable well, the Cinco de Mayo celebration at Lake Sumter Landing was great, and a wonderful dinner at Thai Ruby. Have you tried the Thai Ruby Talapia? Ask for it with medium "heat" as it is too bland without any added spice; but excellent with the "medium heat". Just enough burn on the tongue to make it interesting.

I think a lot of readers of the Political Forum, a lot of people who don't post here much, either read and move on, because of the spirit of bullying, or read and dismiss much of what they read because of frequent references to online political theorists, or just plain decide that this isn't a place where much valid information is exchanged.

I often wonder how people would think and answer on their own on this forum just using logical thinking and an attempt to hear what the other person is saying. There is so much anger, and so much posturing and so much bullying that a lot of people who are interested in how this country is run just stay away.

But...that's politics.

Remember Gracie to not tar the majority for the few that do fit the profile you post.

And you are 100% correct that we the people choose not to be involved because of the pandering, lying, cheating, partisan, special interest, self centered nature of politics. And that is the problem! And the incumbents thrive on that attitude.
