(CNN) - White House Press Secretary Dana Perino has confirmed that President Bush will address the Republican National Convention on its first night.
Perino told reporters today at the White House briefing that President Bush will deliver a speech on September 1, Labor Day. She said incumbent presidents traditionally address the RNC on the first night of the convention.
The White House has not yet said whether Bush might appear with presumptive nominee John McCain at the convention. The two men have made few joint public appearances since McCain effectively claimed his party’s nomination this spring, as the president’s approval ratings continue to hover near historic lows.
Republicans will hold their convention September 1-4, 2008 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Democrats are slated to hold their convention the week before in Denver, Colorado.
Neither of these guys want to be seen with each other. Doesn't that tell you something?
Why does the media try to turn this into an issue????
How can President Bush show up at the RNC without his shadow?
My guess is... they get bush "out of the way" REALLY early... and hell no.... jonny-mac will NOT be appearing with "the decider"...
(can you imagine the democratic commercials with the two of them hugging it out on the convention stage, with chants of "four more years")...
will never happen.... that's a democratic strategists wett dream...
Both of these self serving, ancient thinking, elitest, old men spell nothing but trouble for the Republican cause, especially if they appear together.
McCain won't be in attendance. He'll be in Czrekoslovakia.
TWO (2) peas in the same pot "DINKY AND DOO DINKY"
Who really cares.....
DUMB AND DUMBER!!!
BARACK THE VOTE!!!!!!!!
BARACK / SEBELIUS 08
Bush's presence with McCain will give more support to Barak Obama!
Two old peas in a pod
Told you: "TWO PEAS IN A POD!"
For those who hate President Bush, I have a message: Get over it.
Now let's work together for the good of the country.
WHO CARES!!!! The GOP days are numbered!
i'D LIKE TO SUGGEST THE WORDING OF HIS SPEECH:
"D d da dib da dib- That's all folks!"
Then he can leave the stage, leave the whitehouse and leave us to sort out his mess.
Lesley – No, what does it tell us. if you have nothing to say then please don't make comments. McCain is his own man has been his own man and will continue to be his own man. Unlike Obama, who will be the BOY of, Kennedy, Kerry, Pelosi, Kerry, Dean, Byrd and etc of the DNC. He can not affect change unless it meets the approval of these MANY, MANY, MANY COMBINED YEARS OF OLD OPPOSITION SITTING IN CONGRESS AND THE SENATE. YOU THINK THEY WON'T HAVE TO APPROVE EVERYTHING OBAMA DOES. THEN THINK AGAIN OBAMA IS NOT HIS OWN MAN. FIRST PLACE HE DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE OF BEING HIS OWN MAN. HE CAN'T DEPEND ON HIS UN-PATRIOTIC WIFE MICHELLE TO TELL HIM WHAT TO DO. MAYBE HE CAN GET SOME INFORMATION FROM REV. WRIGHT AND REV. JACKSON. BUT I THINK HE BURNT HIS BRITCHES WITH THEM ALSO. SO HE'S A LAME DUCK EVEN BEFORE HE TAKES OFFICE.
I wish I had something witty to say...twiddle dee and twiddle dum
I see Bush and McBush in the photo. Please help me and tell me which one is which.
He should, they are twins. North carolina gov. can't tell them apart.
HEY , BUSHWACK ASK MCSHAME DID HE RETURN ALL THE $28,000 DOLLARS, EMBEZZLER CRAIG BERKMAN DONATED TO HIS CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR, THEY JUST FOUND CRAIG BERKMAN GUILTY!!!!!
Who cares, RNC / Bush, no one will be listening! We are just waiting patiently for Obama!
They dont have to be seen together for everyone to know they are joined at the hip.
Rumor has it that the McCain campaign desperately wants Bush to appear with Obama! If not Bush, Cheney.
