Can You Say Awkward? Obama is Hosting the Traditional Reveal Ceremony for Bush
Although the 44th President Barack Obama has made it publically known, even before is election, that he feels the 43rd President George Bush’s policies and failures as a president were the cause of the state of the US. Obama has continues with these charges still today.
However, it is tradition that the current US president unveils the previous president’s permanent White House portrait. This should be interesting. There is no love-loss between the two. Obama will not only be hosting George, but Laura as well.
The public can expect more uncomfortable photo ops and not so funny jokes from both the President and the former President. This is always great “water cooler conversation” the next day and the public eats it up. Some of the most entertaining parts of the political world are these formal traditions where everyone has to put on their big boy pants and get alone, if they want to or not.
