Bush and President George H.W. Bush," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. "He has routinely expressed his deep appreciation for the 43rd President’s commitment to this country we love, and is looking forward to returning to Texas later this month."

You have to be fracking kidding me.
obama spends five years trashing this man, and attends a dedication.
Bush should tell him to bugger off.

Yeah, that good old “noblesse oblige” of the Bushes. “When your done kicking me in the butt, you can kick me in the groin, then we’ll go over to our house and eat momma Barbara’s cookies and milk.”

I did and do like President Bush. He was and is a gentleman and decent person. The one thing he did and apparently continues to do that I don’t favor is to ‘turn the other cheek.’ I guess he’s more of a Christian than I

That pretty much defines “noblesse oblige,” even if you didn’t mean to do so.

I understand that Obama's successor will be there, as well.

Dubya's a gentleman and will conduct himself accordingly.

President Obama tends to be poorly disciplined, self-referential and ill at ease; he could do or say something goofy.

No shame on W.

He is a statesman who looks at the office of the Presidency, not the man occupying it. W is a big man; he can handle a little one like Obama.

Obama just wants to see what a library looks like.

Besides, what kind of library will Obama build when he has no paper trail?

Can you imagine what the festive blow-outs will look like when they dedicate the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library and Choom Gang Museums in Hawaii, LA, and Chicago?

I'll be my next SocSec deposit that the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library and Choom Gang Museum will be larger than the next 3 biggest POTUS libraries combined.

Just the awards he's won will fill up a football stadium.

Back in 2007 Bush should have started quietly undermining the evil bastard. By then they knew who he was and what he was all about. Obama could have been stopped with no implication of W having anything to do with it at all.

How can they publically associate themselves with this evil America hater/destroyer? It gives the bastard credibility and approval.

IMO

Obama just likes to travel, he doesn’t care where it is-——or what it costs, he isn’t paying for it.

From another article: Also set to attend: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—both of whom have been frequently mentioned as possible 2016 presidential contenders.

Very nice library. Not as beautiful as the Ronald Reagan Library but much better than the Clinton Trailer House Massage Parlor.

The barack obama presidential library of forged documents will probably be the most interesting part of any legacy he leaves behind.

Oh come on. This is tradition. Bush went to Clinton’s dedication. Carter went to Bush’s dedication. I am not sure if Reagan went to Carters but he most likely did. I got me answer in the link below.

This is going to BLOW ALL FREEPERS MINDS!!!!!!!!

The elites ran that Obama Bush good cop/bad cop stuff pretty well.

The Bush’s fault crap has been and continues to be used to great effect, but look at how many of the Bush-era policies have been kept in place and expanded upon, with nary a peep from anyone.

We’re mired in a BS war, our liberties are all but shredded, our debt is astronomical, our economy is in shambles, and the buddy-buddy ruling class rolls on.

What a load of crap that statement was! So Zero has established a “close relationship” with 41 and 43??? This, after blaming 43 for everything wrong in the entire world?

Who the Hell invited the SOB to Dallas? He’s only coming for the photo op and to steal away some of the attention that should be Bush’s on that day.

Ya gotta remember that GWB isn’t a Native Texan; he was born in CT. Must be something in the water up there that results in people being pacifists by nature. ...Recall that Bush 41 stopped the Gulf War short of getting Saddam, because Gen. “Colon” Powell asked him to stop. Then, Bush 43 forgot all about fighting a war to WIN and decided to try nation building via democracy. How has that worked out?
