Former first lady Laura Bush said George W. Bush decided not to go to ground zero with President Obama Thursday because he believes only acting presidents should participate in such official ceremonies. “That’s for President Obama to do at this point,” she told the Associated Press. Laura Bush also said that she and her husband were at out at dinner Sunday night when they heard Obama was trying to reach him. The former president returned home to take the call informing him that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
