Bush may address the convention via satellite Tuesday.

(CNN) - President Bush may still address the Republican National Convention via satellite from Washington Tuesday evening, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.

Perino said the White House is still awaiting world from the Republican National Committee about scheduling possibilities.

"We're waiting to hear what the convention decides on scheduling, so we haven't made any definitive plans yet," she said.

"We're not planning to travel tomorrow," she added.

    McCain would rather not have Bush speak...LOL. even though hes agreed w/ him 90% of the time he wants to distance himself.

    Lets see what kind of comedy good ol Georgie can bring this time.

    I hope he speaks at the convention so everyone can see how identical he is to John McCain. For how unpopular George Bush is everywhere, it is strange that someone that voted with him 95% of the time could even be competing with Barack Obama.

    Just goes to show how party politics really hurts our political process. John Adams had it right from the start....

    I agree with Earl too. When I look at McCain and Palin, Bush and Chaney are looking pretty darn good!

    Everyone is missing the story here.
    Bush and Chaney have been asked not to attend the republican convention to avoid the horrible photos of McCain standing with Bush on the podium...Why isnt anyone talking about this? This is the story, not the Palins pregnant daughter!!!

    In other words, McCain told him to keep his distance!

    I am sure McCain is so disappointed that King George will not be at the convention. Because we all know how important that it was for Bush to be there! I would just love to hear a new speech about his strategery in Iraq or about how "more and more of our imports come from overseas, or my how there are rumors on the INTERNETS about the Republican party or "Pubs". The history books will tell of how Bush was one of the worst Presidents in (as he would say) AMURICUN history.

    Hopefully this will be "live on location" and we will be able to look forward to W taking an extended vacation in outer space.

    He didn't want to attend anyway. I wonder what the percentage of Republicans not attending the convention is?
