Obama: “We don’t need to spike the ball” … then heads to Ground Zero to start victory lap … W. says “Count me out”

Couple of head scratchers:

President Obama caused a stir in the Muslim world by authorizing the release of pictures of alleged abuse by American soldiers.  But, he’s not releasing the UBL photos because they might cause a stir in the Muslim world.

Hmmm.

His rationale: “We don’t need to spike the football.”

Then he started packing his bags for his first trip as President to Ground Zero” … that is, starting his personal victory lap.

He invited President Bush to join him, but got a regrets card back.

Pundits say it’s because Bush now prefers staying out of the spotlight.

I have a further explanation …

Remember when Obama invited Rep. Paul Ryan to sit in the front row at his budget speech and then proceeded to excoriate Ryan in public.  Calling him names and accusing him of going after autistic children.

Bush probably realized that if he went to Ground Zero with Obama he (1) would  probably end up is some of Obama’s campaign videos and (2) would have to listen to Obama rake him over the coals for enhanced interrogations, Gitmo, etc.

Maybe W isn’t that dumb after all.

PS Late word: President Clinton also got an invite … and sent his regrets.
