George W. Bush Nixes Denver Visit, Citing Invite To Assange

DENVER (CBS4) — Former President George W. Bush has canceled plans to visit Denver. The former president made the decision after learning that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was also invited to attend the same event.

Bush planned to speak at Saturday’s Young Presidents Organization’s “Global Leadership Summit” at the Convention Center on Saturday, Feb. 26, but backed out when he learned Assange was invited.
The annual conference attracts about 2,000 business leaders from 75 countries.

John Nicolakakis from South Africa told CBS4’s Tom Mustin that Bush’s decision was a disappointment.

“I do understand, but in the same breath he has let down a group of people who might have come just to see him,” said Nicolakakis.

Wikileaks has been criticized for releasing secret U.S. government and military documents.

Bush spokesman David Sherzer spoke to Mustin by phone. He said the former president “doesn’t want to share a forum with someone who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

Assange spoke to the group by teleconference on Friday. He’s in Britain, fighting extradition to Sweden in a sex crimes inquiry. YPO members have strong opinions on both sides.

Eric Kurtzman from Las Vegas said, “If Bush had a problem with Assange or anything he said, Bush should have come and represented his case,”

Roger Chasteen from Tulsa disagreed. “We really wanted to see him here. But as an American we respect his decision.”

Bush also had planned to attend a separate education discussion in Denver but won’t attend that either. The YPO issued a statement saying it regretted the president’s decision, but looked forward to working with him in the future.

    The people of the City and County of Denver offer a hearty THANK YOU for choosing NOT to attend.

    1. Liberty says:

      Spoken like the useful idiot you are.

      1. Laughs at hypocrites says:

        Wow, if Bush is an idiot, then Obama must be a…oh wait, there isn’t a classification for one who is lower in IQ than an idiot. Guess we’ll have to create a special classification just for His Majesty.

      2. oldmangruff says:

        I don’t think “useful idiot” means what you think it means. You probably just meant to call him merely an idiot. In the midst, you’ve assisted in indicating that you’re both morons — and, hey, idiots too; why not?😉

      3. HansJurgen says:

        He be a monkey – a human who hasn’t fully evolved.

      4. Liberty's Comrade says:

        Pretty sure Liberty mean “useful idiot” as in its original meaning: a dupe for the Left

      6. IvanK says:

        How’s the Hope and Change working for you?

      7. Alamosq says:

        HansJurgen, I don’t care for President Obama either, but I would not resort to calling him names like that. Very rude.

      8. smprfi33 says:

        “Useful idiot” was the term Stalin used to describe those progressive types that can be counted on to side with the enemies of their own country and against their own best interest.
        Liberty’s Comrade got it right: leftist dupes.

      9. ric says:

        ! second that……..and Stalin had 30 million just like him!

      10. kyrandos says:

        @ Oldmangruff – Better to keep your mouth shut and let everyone think you’re stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

      11. Jim Busse says:

        how do you classify an IQ lower than Idiot?

        How about “O” bama

      12. Jim says:

        Bush canceled Denver & a recent visit to Europe because of his possible arrest for war crimes. Bush’s world continues to shrink. If he were proud of his accomplishments while President, he should have faced his accusers and told them so. I misunderestimate him no more.

      13. SlapHappy says:

        Wasnt it Voltaire who said liberty was the freedom to choose when youll get beaten to death or shot in the face…?

      14. SlapHappy says:

        excuse me…the freedom to choose whether….not when

      15. Dimslie says:

        Obama won’t have to travel to Europe. We’re going to try him HERE.

        “I didn’t join the International Criminal Court because I don’t want to put our troops in the hands of prosecutors from other nations. Look, if somebody has done some wrong in our military, we’ll take care of it. We got plenty of capability of dealing with justice.” — George W. Bush, Niceville, Fla., Aug. 10, 2004

    2. BooHoo says:

      Either a welfare queen or a useful idiot

      1. Laughs at hypocrites says:

        And Obama is an unuseful idiot. No wait, I forgot that we have no classification for the Incompetent of the United States.

      2. Henkv says:

        Oh yes, we have a classification for that: elected Democrat.

      3. jake-OB says:

        You mean the banksters thief in chief in 2008? You’d like to meet him in the airport bathroom I bet.

    3. Golly Polly Stupid head says:

      Polly want a cracker?
      Bird brain!

      1. Laughs at hypocrites says:

        Let’s see, if Bush is a “bird brain” then Obama is a pea brain.

    4. Ivan Fernandez says:

      Polly, you may be a fan of Assange but making money by theft of official secret of any country is not leadership to me. Assange is nothing but blackmail artist in a different way. His articles are fodder for some who help him make money on the internet. George Bush took the helm when USA was under fire from Muslim extremists. He got the country behind him as one to start fight against terrorism. He made decisions based on information that was available but he didn’t steal it. Assange is stealing information vital to many countries. Under Bush we were not attacked by terrorists but Assange attacked (with his leaks) many countries after Bush left. Assange is a cyber terrorist. Without internet he has no place to hide and attack. Why don’t you start fund raising for Assange because very soon he will be heading to USA to face charges?

      1. Billy Nino says:

        Assange clicked on the light on the liar Bush. He is a hero.

      2. im with polly says:

        Hmmm BUSH is a war criminal, satanist and an all around moron, And Assange is a MK Ultra CIA asset so they are both complete idiots.

      3. Chad says:

        Billy,

        You’re hilarious. To call Bush a liar is about as counterfactual as you can get before you start getting back. Especially in light of his tyrannical regime – a regime that disregards court order after court order.

        Couple that with Obama breaking every single promise he makes and Bush is suddenly the most honest man ever to walk the Earth in comparison.

        So Bill, either get back with reality or get to the bank to cash in that paycheck from the White House.

      4. David Brito says:

        Ivan, your starement, “Under Bush we were not attacked by terrorists” leaves me to question your intelligence, sanity or both.

      5. Jim in Houston says:

        Billy Nino: You are beyond stupid. You are complicit in criminal behavior or your supposed hero. Julian Assage.

    5. Jake says:

      Thank you Polly for supporting enemies of the United States. I suppose you also were one of the haters who supported barrack hussein obama when he stood in his plastic temple in Denver.

    6. Tedd Haggard says:

      I would love to attend!! How do I get tickets?

    7. Donna says:

      I say good for you President Bush – a true patriot. I won’t be visiting Denver if this is what the city leadership stands for

      1. Not Denver says:

        It’s not the city of Denver it’s a private organization.

      2. The Voice of Reason says:

        Donna I have to doubt you could ever afford to, or have reason to travel.

      3. Owl Creek Observer says:

        Denver has been a dump for several years. Bush didn’t miss a thing.

      4. fred gill says:

        Exactly. And what I want to know is why Assange isn’t arrested the second he steps off a plane in the US. He’s violated thousands of official secrets acts. Send him to Gitmo where he can take the turban.

      5. Derek says:

        IVoice of Reason = Troll = another ‘useful idiot’

    8. Donald Duck says:

      Believe me Polly, if most of the other residents of Denver agree with you, then the city deserves Julian “The Rapist” Assange. Perhaps you and some of your girl friends would like to spend some “quality” time with Julian. Yes? No?

      1. Polly says:

        Yes, butt only if he is SUPER hung, I like them BIG!!!

    9. Mike says:

      I agree Polly, Denver is much better off without him.

    10. Koots says:

      You don’t speak for me. I happen to support George W.

    11. AtlasObjectivist says:

      Tell us Polly, how is the weather on Planet Loon today?

      1. wes says:

        Polly…what color is the sky in your world?

    12. Chili says:

      Polly, I don’t believe that you speak on behalf of the people of the City and County of Denver. That is hubris. I do think that your hate has clouded your judgment. Last time I checked, Denver is NO Place for Hate.

    13. Rich Pope says:

      Oh bologna! Bush showed CLASS not to attend. The City of Denver should NEVER have invited Assange.

      1. Andy says:

        The city of Denver did not invite him. It is a private convention. The City of Denver had no more to do with Assanage being invited than Bill gates being invited to a software convention.

    14. Boggie Mann says:

      Well Golly Polly, why did you and the peeps of the city and county of Denver ever offer the invitation in the first place?????

    15. BJ says:

      presi Bush was one of the greatest presi. He kept us safe for 8 years. Another thing I like about Presi Bush is that he never bad mouth any presi. he didnt have to bad mouth another Presi to look good. For example Carter just made himself look bad and a nut when he open his mouth.

      1. DanaDee says:

        BJ, you are so right! I disagreed with Bush on many things; however, both he and Laura have class, brought that much needed class to the White House, and continue to exhibit class in their daily lives. Another great sign of America’s dumbing down is that people have so little class–something evidenced by many now in leadership and people hurling their nasty insults in these postings!

      2. jake-OB says:

        Was that BEFORE he ignored CIA and FBI warnings and ALLOWED 3000 Americans to get murdered?

        He didn’t keep safe the troops who needlessly died in Iraq, cheered on by cowardly traitors such as yourself.

    16. nonya says:

      Hey pollyanna……… I am sick of you phony self righteous hags
      ruining a great state. MOVE. You know nothing except what your faux
      friends and liberal teachers tell you…..YOU need to get out more and you should pay more taxes. and by all means dont have kids ( I’m sure your sterile).

    17. ray maurice says:

      You mean for assange not to attend—right? polly want a white cracker.

    18. Horsedoc says:

      what an ignorant comment about a man that gave years of his life for the United States. But then i dont expect you to understand

    19. dean says:

      What a lousy typical stupid liberal attitude. Maybe if you shut your idiot trap and liisten to an intellegent and honest person you would learn somthing. But wait….. Oh yeah your too dumb to figure it out/

    20. gary says:

      with 20% of the auto accident in CO reported as caused by people under the influence of Pot, I totally understand your comment. As a veteran, I am take pride in knowing that my service protected your right to speak out and say truly dumb things and that you have the freedom to support those who would do damage to this country. While Bush will probably not be recorded as our greatest president, rest assured that he will rank considerably higher than his successor.

      1. CC Ryder says:

        Higher than his successor or PREDECESSOR!

    21. Al Moreno says:

      Mr. Bush… I miss you man.

    22. Texasmom says:

      We offer you a hearty thank you for giving everyone something to post about. You are a moron.

    23. So Cal Mike says:

      Polly want a cracker?
      Polly likes Julian Assange.
      Polly is a nut case.

    24. JustAGuy says:

      Polly is glad Bush won’t attend but offers a hearty welcome to the US hating Julian Assange.

      …you just have to shake your head at liberals and their twisted sense of priorities.

      1. DanaDee says:

        Yes, because that is quite literally all you can do for them . . . and pray. I grew with liberalism in my family, and they honestly have no sense of logic. They are always arguing from an emotional stance, never utilizing any common sense. They have no understanding of human nature, either. I concluded along time ago that liberalism is their god; it is what makes them feel good about themselves because otherwise, they don’t. That’s the only explanation.

        P.S. I no longer communicate with these people because I just couldn’t stand having their liberal views shoved down my throat at every single little opportunity. And they would never ever listen to my side–they are the elitist and I am inferior as far as they are concerned! With relatives like these, you can do without!

    25. Polly says:

      1. Jaboni says:

        Did u eat paint chips as a kid? I think I speak for the rest of the forum when I say that I hope you are sterile

      2. bigtimeliberal says:

        uh, the democrats where in control during those yrs.i think gay frank and cris dodd were dems. president cant spend money unless congress oks it. the dems controled congress.

      3. Dee in Pa says:

      5. Knucklenose says:

        Last I heard democrats could not be located

        Fact- The Republicans came before Congress in 05 and presented the results of a third party study of Fannie mae and Freddie Mac showing disaster on the horizon.
        Fact- Pelosi, Bwaney Fwank and Harry Reid all screamed “RACISTS!” at the Republicans.
        Fact- This scared the Republicans witless, as intended and it always does, and they shut up.
        Fact, Bush signed on to the Democratzi notion that “every American deserves a home”, (or was that health care?….lawn care?….Car Care?……..No..it WAS A Home!.. I remember).

        Fact-Here we are. Deal with it Democratzi. YOU put us here.

      7. Bob says:

        Oh Polly,,,, I think it’s time to change your pull-up and get out of your p.j.’s time to turn off the cartoons on NPR.

    26. Josh says:

      Just as I would thank Barack not to darken the doorstep of San Diego.

    27. Jaboni says:

      Why do Barney frank and Chris Dodd get to decide new banking rules when the meltdown happened on their watch as long time senate finance cmte members? I would love to hear a rationale argument for their inclusion, other than the gerbil procurement special interest crew

    28. Jon says:

      You’re a jerk, you liberal puke

    29. mark says:

      speak for yourself… you can’t speak for all of us in Denver.

    30. Derrick says:

      Buy some new batteries for your vibrator beeotch. It’s Obama’s fault.

    31. richard cheney says:

      Chickenhawk proves his mettle….one more time.

    32. matt says:

      That is because Denver is now a suburb of Berkeley and it reminds me of what SWC once said. “I like Pigs. Cats look down on you. Dogs look up to you. Pigs treat you as equals.” It sounds like you are a cat!

    33. Some Guy says:

      My guess is you’re a class act in everything you do. Bet you have a lot of friends.

    34. Jack says:

      What a stupid comment!! Not surprised tho, Liberals are stupid to start with. You live in another world.

    35. Cassandra251 says:

      Isn’t “useful idiot” the term supposedly coined by the Soviet Union to refer to liberals who inadvertently helped them spread communism? So, Polly, not Bush, is the useful idiot.

    36. Stone Hendge says:

      The people of Eagle County thank YOU for staying in Denver next weekend. There actually is no prize for how much cr@ p you can fit on top of your SUbaru.

    37. Missy says:

      Even out of office Bush’s got more class and the ability to make the better decision than that community organizer in the white house. The “O” just can’t make the right decisions. He’s either playing golf, basketball or hobknobbing with the goober smoochers. He can’t deliver on his pre-election commitments and is an overall disappointment for many voters. He sides against taxpayers and stands with the unions……….someone please fast forward the clock so this man can be out of office. Let’s see when he’s a past President if HE can keep HIS MOUTH shut like Bush has with him, but we already know what he will do.

    38. Smark says:

      I’m not a W fan. He’s as much a liberal big-government politician as any democrat ever dreamed of being. However, he did the right thing here. If Krutzman had a brain (doubtful), he would have understood. But….(crickets)

    39. stmichrick says:

      Polly;
      How silly of you.

    40. Rusty says:

      Oh – I guess the fact that the shyster former mayor (now governor who ‘passed the hat’ at rallies) made your great city a sanctuary city didn’t bother him. Useful idiot would be correct – I may not agree with GW, but it seems we’re going in the wrong direction a lot faster now – sanctuary cities that flaunt our laws like Denver – and people who don’t understand that there are threats to our country and freedom such as yourself – are part of the problem.

    41. rehtrh says:

      Polly your not too bright are you?

    42. Bailey says:

      How stupid can you be to type that?

    43. jim pierce says:

      Looks like pres bush told the event he would not come if assange spoke, so what a surprise ! also what value does assange bring to the table , like none, what is his claim to fame . he sold out everone for some fame and cash .pres bush can do what he wants he is in the private sector , if i was in denver i would be more upset with the event than pres bush , they had a choice , ok pres bush or assange they went with assange , a very poor choice ,also mr bush showed some good values like it or not . alot of world leaders would have done the same. God bless this great nation .

      1. GSNP says:

        to jim pierce – “they [Conference] had a choice , ok pres bush or assange they went with assange , a very poor choice ,also….”
        BOTH bush & assange were invited – bush was trying to intimidate Conference w/him or assange…….. Good for Conference for NOT being BULLIED.
        it was BUSH who reneged on invite….. CONFERENCE SAID THEY STILL WANTED HIM TO ATTEND. it was Bush’s decision to not attend.
        Conference was then TOLD [by whom – USG?] not to air Assange speech to media. DON’T BLAME IT ON CONFERENCE OR ASSANGE.
        GOOD FOR THE CONFERENCE not to be bullied by BUSH – but THEN the USG prevailed with its PUNISHMENT to Conference.
        What corruption of USG we have.

    44. Icare2 says:

      Poor, poor Polly. What entitlement program pays your rent? Or maybe your a teacher. Nah… probably a lifetime student. Sad thing is your vote counts.

    45. gumpy says:

      bush is a fugitive; he is wanted for crimes against humanity. bush will not touch-down in switzeerland for his orders for torture.

      bush lied the usa into a war with iraq and hundreds of thousands of innocent people were killed…they are still being killed.

      the people around bush should be in jail: wolfowitz, abrams, perle, et al.

    46. GSNP says:

      why would people of Denver want people NOT to attend?
      NO Reason for not wanting people to attend was given.

    47. vince says:

      i believe the blame lies with the moron that invited assange to the conference. cut me a break the guy is wanted around the world for a alleged sex crime. even if he’s not guilty (yet) he should not be invited to any conference let alone to a “leadership” conference. thank you mr. bush for once again making the correct decision.

    48. Tommy says:

      I see you libs still cannot respect past presidents unless they are Democrats. Do you teach your kids this disrespect?

  2. Larry O'Daniels says:

    Finally, George Bush making a tough decision the right way and for the right reason. Wish he could have done such when he held office.

    1. nightwriter999 says:

      Oh, and I suppose you are supporting the loon in the Red House that voted present everytime a vote came about and is now partying like there is no tomorrow while his communist friends are out screaming that they are losing their golden parachutes!

      I’m from Wyoming and I would really like to know what happened to the folks in Colorado. When were you invaded by the politically correct California fruits and nuts and when did you leave sanity behind??? When are you going to take your state back and evict all these mentally deficient libs?

    2. Jaboni says:

      And what tough decisions have u made lately? Paper or plastic? Ur a coward or an idiot, I can’t decide, for minimizing the decision of sending 18 yr olds to war, how dare u

      1. Artemis says:

        Well, the first decison I made today was to spell “You” correctly. “You” have a keyboard, use it. Although, your education isn’t very clear.

      2. Jim in Houston says:

        You must be a product of public education with your total lack of proficiency in spelling, other than that you sound like any other liberal moron.

  3. Susan says:

    Polly please don’t presume to speak for all the citizens of Denver. I’d much rater hear him speak than Assange who should be in jail now.

    1. Garrett Schaefer says:

      Julian Assange is a hero that the world has been asking for. He deserves praise, not condemnation for the simple task of SPREADING THE TRUTH.

      1. DAFT! says:

        Is that just like SOCIAL JUSTICE, and SPREAD THE WEALTH?
        aRE YOU ONE OF THE POD PEOPLE OR JUST A SLEEPER AGENT FOR THE RUSSIANS?

      2. mcc says:

        Gareth, How strange that Wikileak has NOTHING ON RUSSIA- if he get a real picture of the barbaric russia that desintegrate or rather drown in its own excrements – where 90% of people live like animals no runnning water, no electricity, no gas, hungry, on their knees. Where 80% are incurable alcoholics, and 50% on young russians are on Afghan heroin. Where army is a joke, and almost 1 million chinese crossing non-existant chinese-russian border, where Moscow is 80% central asian muslim city, where in certain regions e.g., Mayak, Chelabinsk, Magnitogorks the generations of monsters are being born because of radiation. Had he poblished anything of this sort HE WILL BE DRINKING THAT TEA WITH POLONIOU SO FAST THAT HE WOULDN’T KNOW HE IS DEAD….

      3. nightwriter999 says:

        Okay, now I’m projectile vomiting across the room! Mental illness alert…

      4. John Breland says:

        What he deserves is a bullet between his eyeballs. As a U.S. soldier, I would be honored to put it there if authorized to do so.

      5. titus says:

        This is not about either bush or Assange. is about honesty. One lied to the American people and the other one spilled the beans on corruption and deceit of “our” government.

      6. Artemis says:

        @ Matt:

        Actually, we do care about what’s in the constitution. Which is exactly why “our” party formed.

        Taxed. Enough. Already. TEA. See? Not very hard. Are you one of those Wisconsin students that the teachers are ignoring? To be as willfully stupid otherwise is a tragedy against potential.

        Quit worshiping a failed idea and put functional, proven practices back in place.

      7. Jim in Houston says:

        You still smoking that funny stuff. You definitely aren’t thinking straight. Do you understand the term treason or is that too advance for your dope infected brain to comprehend?

      8. Bailey says:

        You ass!

      9. Tommy says:

        And if people died because of what he printed you would feel the same? Why don’t you move to Europe where your social democracy is already in practice.

    2. Chris says:

      Jail? Sorry, no US law exists “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” He’s not the leaker; he’s the publisher.

      1. Matt says:

        These teabagger drudge bots don’t actually care (or know) about what’s in the constitution.

      2. GenderBender says:

        It’s not a “freedom of speech” or “freedom of the press” issue, its a “spreading state secrets with the intent to cause the state or it’s intrests harm” issue. IE. espipnage. And Bush and his ilk aren’t the only one who thinks this. The Obama Justice Department is going after him. And Obama is like, totally smart, and he’s got like, such a huge IQ, and he’s like, totally different from Bush

      3. Flayer says:

        So, if Assange publishes your social security number, bank accounts, history of stds,abortions, divorce procedings and other other personal info, causing much harm to you and your family, would he still be a hero?

      4. nasti says:

        wrong again…. hes a HACKER you |diot….

      5. Chris says:

        …and I am all for the Tea Party and check Drudge daily.

        Every news outlet in the country published these leaks. By GenBen’s logic, they’re all guilty of “espipnage”.

    3. Fanny Forbes Franklen says:

      If you’re not savvy enough to know the Bush and Assange play for the same team … you’re out of your league. Do some research. You are living in a delusion created for you by the media, government and Hollywood.

      4. John Paulstrom Southwalk says:

        What’s really hysterical is that nasti thinks there are real political parties and that there is a difference between them.

        Delusional degenerates usually use that tin foil hat line that stopped working in the 1990’s … how last century of you grandpa.

    “willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

    I think that more accurately describes Bush than Assange.

    1. Ha Ha U LOST! says:

      Only if you are a leftist that hates your country….

  5. Det says:

    Assange is just a leaker, passing on info that could cause chaos.

    Nothing great about that…Any nut job could do that.

    1. Garrett Schaefer says:

      Not really, he’s a pretty elite hacker, and I don’t see “any nut job” being willing to endure the unjust persecution Mr. Assange is receiving.

      1. berrin says:

        Please get your facts straight. He is not a hacker. Some little twit (who will thankfully be in a federal prison for a long time) HANDED him the information. How clever or ‘elite’ do you have to be to publish something that someone else stole. You just have to have big b@11s. An egomaniac that will get what is coming to him.

    2. nasti says:

      berrin…. just because someone gave him this info this time doesnt take away for him being a self proclaimed hacker

    Bush is right not to attend – you don’t lend individuals like Assange or events that host people like him the prestige of a presidential visit. If there are miscreant citizens who think Bush is less welcome then Assange, then you’ve validated his decision in spades. Oh, and your basketball team sucks now. Enjoy.

    1. bunky says:

      Your football team sucks as well

  10. David says:

    I love how morons like polly assume to speak for a entire city. Good job president bushm Assange should be arrested but the current admin has no balls.

    Polly, your an idiot!

  13. John says:

    History will view George W. Bush as one of the greatest U. S. Presidents of all time, and continues to make the tough decisions that illustrate his greatness.

    1. WhosWho says:

      GWB will be remembered as a courageous leader of freedom and a one of optimism. However, he will also be remembered as uber fiscal failure. Biggest republican tax spender that I can recall.

      1. John says:

        If we get out of this financial mess and on solid footing, 50 years from now his spending will only be a footnote

    2. kari says:

      gwb was a absolute big government failure that paved the way for the huge 2006 dem wins and the subsequent horrible dem rule we had. gwb spent like there was no tomorrow, increased the debt, invaded a country that didn’t attack us on 9-11, and stole liberty via the patriot act. he is a disgrace. i am a tea party conservative….you know a small gov’t conservative, a real conservative, which bush was NOT! I own my own biz so don’t go there with liberal welfare queen. good riddance to bush.

      1. John says:

        Current, emotional flaming stuff that won’t even be remembered in 50 years. Your getting too emotionally involved in current lib propaganda.

    3. Dr Logic says:

      I hope you got a good deal on all the rock you smoke, John. At least you might have a couple of bucks left in your wallet, because you certainly haven’t got a brain in your skull.

    4. Jaboni says:

      Truer words never spoken

  14. Rick says:

    If President Bush will not attend because he does not want to share a forum with someone who has “willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States” I guess we won’t be seeing him with Obama any time soon!

  15. Uncle Bill says:

    Barry is a radical muslin who is hell bent on destroying America

  16. SCM says:

    Bush made some mistakes for sure, but Assange willfully weakens the US position in the world (just like BHO). That any organization in the US would invite Assange to speak is a joke. I don’t even understand why the YPO – an organization for young business execs – would want to attract this scrutiny by inviting either of them is beyond me.

  17. I miss W says:

    Oh yeah, this is what a President does when he cares about his country’s interests. I almost forgot.

    1. Matt says:

      He lets us get attacked on Sept 11th 2001, starts 2 wars he can’t finish and collapses the global economy?

      Bush has a strange way of caring about his country’s interests…

      1. c ya says:

        Let me guess…..you think president Obama is a much better president? I guess the “Global Economy” was the clue…..

        At least Bush could prove he was born here. Also Bush is not a filthy communist.

      2. Amelia22 says:

        Matt, you really want to go there? How about Pres. Clinton having 10 CHANCES to take out Osama Bin Laden before 9/11, and refused every time because of wanting an oil sale with the Saudis to go through?

      3. Good Job Denver says:

        Matt – bless your heart! We have to love those that can’t help themselves. Doesn’t make you any smarter, but at least you’ll know you have the right to spew ignorance and hate wherever you may go.

      4. Auggie says:

        Ok, but we were never successfully attacked after that on Ws watch, and the global meltdown was due to Barney Frank giving home loans to anyone, hell my dog could have had a home loan from Freddie, Fannie, and Barney.

      5. Matt says:

        @cya

        Let me guess, you dropped out of school before finishing the 5th grade.

      6. BillV says:

        Sept 11th happened within the first 4 years of his presidency, so the blame goes to the prior administration. That’s how it works, right?

      7. Amelia22 says:

        BiHV, no it doesn’t. Clinton was to blame for not taking out Osama Bin Laden, and also to blame for a barrier between the FBI and CIA sharing information with each other. Several people from the CIA have testified to this and even written books about it.

      8. Creaton says:

        Matt you really are a moronic tool, what do you do all day idiot, sit around in your underwear watching galdiator movies and waiting for the mailman to bring you your government check you did’nt earn. You can’t possibly have a job, your comments indicate you are an imbecile.

  18. Ayn R. Key says:

    Bush doesn’t want to speak at any forum. that invites someone who has “willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

    So Bush never speaks anywhere?

  19. mike says:

    We Denverites love anything that hates or hurts this country. This country sucks and we all know it. Bush bad, Assange good. End of story.

    1. w says:

      Honesty ! I can’t fault an honest leftist….

  20. William Vincent says:

    Does anyone care that Clinton sold secrets to the Chinese.

  21. LibertyPoet says:

    You guys have got to be kidding me, Bush has done more harm to the US than any person alive at the moment. He started our country’s collapse, and Obama is finishing the job…

    1. Amelia22 says:

      LibertyPoet, really? Like Clinton letting Osama Bin Laden get away 10 TIMES?? I guess 3,000 people dying in 9/11 don’t matter to you, huh? Not to mention Clinton could have done something about Rwanda and didn’t, letting thousands more get killed. Lovely Democrats, aren’t they?

      1. Lucas says:

        Seriously? Bringing up Bill? He took Bush’s massive deficit and turned it into an unprecedented surplus, only to have Bush II create a massive deficit again. Yet it’s the Dems that are the party of big spending.

      2. Why Don't You Explain It, Amelia says:

        So Amelia, why don’t you list these ’10 TIMES!!!’ that you keep referring to over and over and over again. What’s that? You haven’t a single fcking clue what you’re talking about? Gee… never saw that coming.

      3. Amelia22 says:

        Hey WHY (who refuses to even use a name), there was an interview on the radio with a CIA guy in charge of the Osama Bin Laden desk who said Clinton had a chance to kill Osama 10 TIMES – if you would get out of your mom’s basement you might have discovered it –

      4. AmerlialovesKoch says:

        Amelia. Are you 9 years old?

    2. kari says:

      exactly. any conservative who claims to like bush is NOT a conservative.

    3. Amelia22 says:

      Yes, bringing up Bill Clinton – who is to blame for thousands of people dying in 9/11, thousands of people dying in Rwanda. And it was not due to Clinton that there was a surplus during his presidency, it was due to the dot.com boom. In fact, the U.S. was going into a steep recession six months before Clinton left office, leaving major doubt as to whether Clinton would have been reelected if he had run for another term. What are you, into revisionist history or something??

      1. Yikes says:

        What are you into, huffing gasoline? Because you come off as somebody is firing on their last neurons.

      2. Amelia22 says:

        Yikes, I guess when you fail history, all that’s left to do is insult people. Sorry you never graduated high school.

    4. alveys America says:

      You must be living in Moms basement my friend. Bush showed the Mid-east we were serous about kicking butt when that was needed…..Obama looks like a door matt to everyone in that area of the world, and Asia and Western Europe.

  22. Jujubar says:

    Well, well, well. As Gomer Pyle said, “Surprise, surprise, surprise. Shazam!”

    If Bush would start canceling events involving Clinton and Carter on “common ground” issues, I’d start to believe he might know his arse from a SOCIALIST.
    But, he doesn’t.

  23. Lucas says:

    Both Bush and Assange were/are responsible for grave harm to the citizens of the U.S.

    1. Texasmom says:

      Hey Lucas, why don’t you ask Polly to marry you

  24. Polly says:

    Maybe he should send his brother Neil instead, you know the one who brought down Silverado Saving, circa 1985, and cost over $1.6 Billion, not including what he and his cronies outright stole.

    1. Geoff says:

      Polly, you really want to throw around a figure like $1.6 Billion?
      Let’s spell it out with zeros:
      $1,600,000,000
      Obama, Pelosi and the Dems have cost us taxpayers over $5 Trillion
      $5,000,000,000,000
      Now-a-days, $1.6 Billion is a rounding error.
      Stop stealing my tax money to bribe your demonrat friends

      1. Polly says:

        News flash “Geoff” in 1985 one thousand six hundred million was equal to 1/4 of the total deficit. And on a personal note, you have a pretty name, I think I will name my first born daughter Geoff. You are a totally brainwashed nutjob, now get back to your FOX news.

    2. Lukifer says:

      Polly
      I am looking to make some babies, so lets get started. These boys here aren’t interested in you so I am. Lets get the party and harem started.
      I hear your a hot lass from Denver and I expect that hot love making sessions with you are mandatory on both your part and mine. I work miracles under the covers and on table tops equally well.
      I must warn you however I expect you to be tested for STD’s and be drug free during the baby making process. And when the protection comes off I figure once you ovulate we will be having twins within those 10 months. I name our boy you name our daughter. Do Geoff proud but Gabriella is a nicer name IMO.
      I must warn you that I can perform for hours on end without Viagra but if you insist that I use it then You lass will be saddle sore for weeks on end when I do. I also must warn you that I am a very selfish man who does not share his woman with any other men period. If you insist on another female partner being with us then she must be also good looking, also tested for STD’s and drug free and also be able to least handle 5-6 hours of good sex per night or at least every other night when your too tired to perform.
      I do not practice polygamy but would if you insist that it would work. I am not Muslim nor Mormon in this case but if you have hot sisters and good looking girl friends then I am willing to start a commune for us under a new faith or religion of some sort. We can talk about veils and other proper attire for the other women after the wedding. Note: I do not practice Incest or sex with underage girls, so they must be at least 18 to participate in any love making sessions. However if you insist I must take on a Hispanic or Jewish bride after you then she can be 16 or older and I prefer she not be a US citizen at the time. Another note: However your lovely single female cousins over 18 are welcome to opt in to our health-care plan as family participants for more baby making sessions which I am sure I can handle and we all can afford together. If they are also Hispanic or Jewish ladies 16 or older is suffice for me or whatever the law is in Colorado or where ever we decide to reside. We can do gardening and conserve everything in our household and each of us can share the choirs of watching the children grow to ensuring the home is perfect for all of us. We will make sure our vehicles and homes are green as most people these days have also done.

      I am sure we can find some compromise with all of this after we get started.

      Sooooo????? How About It?

  25. Jakartaman says:

    The ex-President did the right thing. He was/is an honorable man.
    Whether you agree or disagree with his politics.

    I wish I could same the same for our current President

  26. Ted Haggard says:

    George, I sure wish you were coming, I was planning on giving you some more of my “spiritual counciling” yours truly Teddy

  27. Tom says:

    It sure was great to ive in a country that once had a president who loved the United States of America.

    Obamao hates the United States of America just as much as darling of the America-hating, leftist freakshow fringe Assange does.

  28. J says:

    Bush’s Rep: Bush doesn’t want to share a forum with someone who has” willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

    Now thats IRONY!

    1. Texasmom says:

      Another village idiot

  29. Rolf Steiner says:

    I did not always agree with W., but unlike the Lunatic Left, I never doubted his resolve or his integrity. No American should be willing to share a podium with Julian Assange, a worthless excuse for a human being and an enemy of the United States.

  30. JayP says:

    Why Bush would have originally accepted an invite to a Communist bastion like Denver is beyond me. Western Colorado isn’t much more than a LA suburb and is a joke along the same lines as San FranSicko.

  31. Lt. Walker says:

    As an American living overseas, I get to see two sets of news – The U.S. News and then the REAL news. Most people who are mad at Polly, sound like you’ve sat and lapped up the nonsense you’re being fed. What is happening to my country?! Each day I defend you but you must first learn to defend yourselves. The first step to that is arming yourself with knowledge. Next week, I retire with honour from 15 years in the field. And in those 15 years I have learned, there are far greater monsters in Washington than our “news” would have you believe. Assange has put many of us out here in danger. And nothing makes me angrier!

    But you have to accept the fact that we aren’t innocent in all of this either. And once you accept that, maybe then you can look at the situation for what it truly is, a global mess where everyone’s wrong. Look before you leap.

    1. Amelia22 says:

      Lt Walker, thanks for your service. Secondly, sounds like you’re being brainwashed by liberal media. Please read something other than Daily Kos, okay?

      1. Lt. Walker says:

        Ma’am there is no such thing as liberal and conservative in my world. I’ve been seeing the front lines of what’s really going on and I’ve then read the exact opposite on US sites, and closer (but not fully accurate accounts) on British, Muslim, European and Russian news outlets. My issue is that somewhere someone decided Americans needed protection from themselves. I completely disagree. Why shouldn’t we know what’s happening in places where our country is concerned? The rest of the world sure knows!

        People can agree and disagree with Polly all they want, I’m pointing out the fact that most people who disagree instantly say that that person is an enemy of America when most of them don’t have a clue – it sounds like they are regugitating what they hear on the news. There are two sides to every scenario. You have to see the whole scenario in order to make sound decisions. It pains me to hear any American (liberal or conservative) say to another, “If you don’t get over over here and bury your head in the sand with me, you’re an enemy of America!” Get online, investigate other news outside of America and read how it’s being reported, not only will your eyes be opened but you’ll understand why people are being fuelled to hate us and maybe Americans will stop hating each other. At the rate we’re going, our divided house will not stand.

      2. Amelia22 says:

        LT Walker – you are saying that radical Muslims just hate us “just because”?? Not because they consider us infidels in the Koran?? Seriously, do you not know why 9/11 happened? Because that opened my eyes plenty, and a lot of others as well. We are supposed to just sit back, let other countries attack us?? Be openminded, that’s what you are saying here, right?? Oh, and being condescending that I don’t look at other news online – excuse me?? I lived overseas for years and have a pretty good understanding of what’s going on in other countries. It sounds like you actually hate and look down on Americans who have a different opinion yourself – that they can’t disagree or they are horrible if they do.

        I

      3. NorthDenver says:

        @ Amelia – You are the exact problem in this country. Get a grip. This man who is fighting for your freedom is telling you to take the wool off from over your eyes and all you do is come back with circular rants about ‘mooslems’. Seriously, it is disturbing to see the level of disrespect you stand for. GET A GRIP.

  32. James says:

    Well, since Bush is out the logical replacement is Carmelo Anthony.

    Good for Bush!

  35. denverrep says:

    Dems started the down fall of the economy when they, in 2006, stated they would tax the rich…so the rich took their ball and home….and guess what…they will stay there until their invenstment can be rewarded not taken.

    Obama always says “when we got there” When he got here, in congress, there was under 6% unemployment and the DOW was over 13000 pts. Does he think we don’t remember “when we got there” ?

    @Lucas yes it is the Dems fault…presidents always get saddled with the budget, but it is congress that spends…and spends…and

    1. Lukifer says:

      Its both the GOP and DNC’s fault. Its Neocon big business around the globe for bankers and wall street thugs and us meddling in the affairs of other nations without the power to do so. Bush is a part of this consortium as well as Clinton, Bush Sr, and now Obama. They are puppets on a string for the NWO. They even tell you who they work for… duh!

      They are the same party with different heads or rather masks…..

      This entire war is fabricated to secure Oil contracts in Iraq and Mineral Rites in Afghanistan for China and to devalue the US dollar as George Soros has said openly. I am not saying 9-11 was fabricated but the undeclared war is in fact a distraction to our failing economy and our eventual demise. They are legally robbing us as they did in the great depression. Even in 2012 with new leadership we still are sunk, the damage is already done and I am not so sure even Ron Paul could save our sinking ship without massive cuts like the Fed and DOE( Other agencies too) and conservation not seen since the foundation of this once great nation.

      I guess as a Veteran & Patriot I really am a Libertarian or at least a Constitutionalist at heart.

      In 2012 we will be the new Nazi Germany unless we put an end to it now.

    Assange is a POS who should be arrested and tried for espionage if he enters the U.S.

  39. Karl Quick says:

    Surprised at the ignorance of some on this forum about the year 2001:

    1) 9/11/2001 was less than 9 months into Bush’s first term (inauguration was 1/20/2001 I believe.)
    2) vetting and confirming many of Bush’s staff had been delayed by the debate as to who won the 11/2/2000 given the legal appeals by Gore;
    3) many of the acting security staff were hold overs from the Clinton administration.

    Blaming 9/11 on Bush given the history is as rediculous as blaming the 2009 recession on Obama. Both problems were festering well before the new administration was on its feet. (E.g. the USS Cole was bombed in Yemen harbor by Al Qada terrorists in December 2000 on Clinton’s watch. The 1st bombing of the Trade Center, the bombings of African embassys and the Al Quada involvement in Somolia all happened during Clinton’s terms.)

    Those first 8 months were consumed in vetting staff, addressing the recession of 2000 due to the bursting of the Internet bubble and the year 2000 computer bug fears, etc. The goal Bush had was to be a “domestic presidency” and the major legislative accomplishment that spring was the “No Child Left Behind Act” in which he partnered with Teddy Kennedy for passage…. talk about reaching across the asile in the first 6 months of a presidency!

    The major hit against him was his reluctance to reopen the failed peace talks between the Israelies and the Palistinians. He felt it was time to deal with domestic issues and stay away from international issues.

    Terrorism on the scale of 9/11 and the resulting wars certainly were not in his mind during those first 8 months… nor it seems the security advisors from the Clinton administration that were held over pending congressional approval of Bush’s personnel.

    When the market crashed due to 9/11, predictions were that it would take 20 years for the American economy to recover.

    It is remarkable, given this start, that we had enough economy to have a recession in 2007-2009!

    I guess memories are short and words are blame and hate are an easy substitute for historical facts.

    1. Lakelevel says:

      Actually the 2009 recession can be blamed on Obama since his party (and he personally) had been in control of Congress since January 2007.

  40. Polly says:

    The BUSH PLAGUE, as history will most likely term it, will haunt this country for generations to come.

    1. Yippee says:

      Polly, the only PLAGUE is you and your dumb comments polluting intelligent conversation!

    2. Jaboni says:

      Polly is a republican fundraiser trying to get us to hate democrats!!!!! Don’t be a hater, be a free thinker!

      Lets wait till 2012 and see Polly. i feel your might be wrong on this one.

  41. FedUp! says:

    Bush is absolutely right! What an outrage! Why any org. in the U.S. would want that traitor (assange) is unfathomable! Hope the traitor gets his, if you know what I mean, like bend over, here it comes, in prison. Then I hope he fries in hell!!!

  42. Mike Hunt says:

    Is the word “EVILDOERS” in the Webster Dictionary yet?

    Putrid Polly’s mother should have had an abortion.

    No wait, Putrid Polly’s grandmother should have had an abortion and then be spayed.

    President George Bush…..A great American.
    J. Assange a Marxist rapist.
    Don’t think I would want to be anywhere near that leftist criminal Assange either.
    Smart move Mr. President, I salute you!

      Both the same in different sheep’s clothing. Wouldn’t be surprised if they both weren’t members of the Fabien Society or at least Skull and Bones or some other masonic fraternity.

    Would someone please arrest this trash & expidire him to face charges for treason & war crimes, under universal jirisdiction!

    1. Lukifer says:

      He “Assange” cant be charged for treason – he is not a US citizen and his acts did not occur on US territory. Espionage charges would have to be like a “status of forces” agreement or Treaty. Another nation does not have to recognize our laws legally if they feel they impede there own unless they are treaty bound to do so.

      US law only applies to US territory not everywhere on earth. Why do people think our law is the law of the world? Morons and Buffoons, that’s why the Arabs hate us you freak’n idiots. They WATCH US and they do the same thing we did and we cry foul about it. We are not good examples anymore to the world because all we care about is the almighty dollar here in the USA.

      Bush cannot be tried in any international court for war crimes. Especially the ones the US Government does not recognize and won’t anytime soon and for good reason. Neither could have Milosevic former president of Yugoslavia accept I believe they ratified the International court as a lawful tribunal for his former country. We have tried former Presidents of other nations in our courts illegally and no one has stopped us. This is a precedent in our nation that will eventually bite us in the ass. People better understand that courts really aren’t their to protect anyone except the state they are apart of.

      Dumb both on the Right and the Left, Stop drinking the kool aid folks and wake the hell up. Read your Bible for a change and turn off CNN and FOX just for a day or two and watch em all go crazy about something new. You will be glad you did turn it off.

      They are all puppets to the NWO…

  50. Henkv says:

    Thank you George for stepping aside so that Assange can earn some cash to put together his rape defense team. Though Assange need not worry; Europe is very kind to famous rapists, though he might have been smarter rape a minor (you set one nice precedent mr Polansk.!)

    I always have and always will respect you Mr Bush. I bet with all those rows of boots on your farm you didn’t have anything that could handle the filth spread by Mr. …ange (sorry, can’t use certain words or the censor will throw me out)

  51. Not Myprez says:

    NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT – the party is hijacked by marxist / communist / socialist / idiots….Most democrats fit into one or all of those catagories – – obama fits in ALL of them

    1. Henkv says:

      But fitting in all of them is just a great thing: more votes when even the weirdest far out lunatics can relate to you.

    2. Fred says:

      I was a 100% Democrat. Now I would never pull the lever for ANY Democrat. They undermined the country while at war shortly after 9/11 and are now being exposed for the corrupt party that they are. In bed with the unions and using taxpayer money, funnelled through unions, to run the Democrat National committee. Now Obama is judge and jury with this DOMA BS. He should be impeached for this and hopefully will be.

      1. Finley says:

        I used to be a mindless Democrat too. It took a few decades until I matured and realized that Democrats lied and refuse to answer questions. Hell, if things don’t go their way with votes, they’ll just run away to prevent government from working or they’ll do some other illegal stunt — anything but play by the rules.

      2. Lukifer says:

        You guys should be more Libertarian and Constitutionalist because both sides are playing us like the fools we have been. I vote Republican in the primaries because the Dems put out idiots here and because we only have 2 parties on the ballot in PA but I vote differently in General Elections.

        This needs to change because how do two parties lawfully subjugate other smaller parties and their primaries? Now that we have computers at the ballot box we can have a 3-4 or even 5-6 party system that votes our morals and conscience more independently than as in the past. We once had more political parties in the ancient days but look at these guys today.

        Sad indeed to have two parties rule over us. I don’t recall that in the US Constitution either.

  52. John Svengali says:

    I’m very proud to say I voted twice for that man. Not only my pride, but my respect for him runs deeper with the passing of time.

  53. John Svengali says:

    Liberal Denver, only separated from San Francisco by half a million butt plugs.

  54. American 1st says:

    the world will never be the same since his selection. its been down hill from day one. it seems we haven’t bottomed out yet. if not a crime its at the very least a heartbreak to see this country decline over the past ten years.

    1. Lukifer says:

      this is what happens when we throw God out and people worship Mammon instead. it takes more than one man to ruin a country.

      If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14:

      And I feel that most won’t be doing that anytime soon…. So the end comes and near it is…

  55. Sparky2 says:

    Bush again proved his courage and respect for principle. I don’t know of any president who was so vilified by a very liberal media for so long, and managed to stick to his principles and values. If anyone wanted to describe a ‘man, Bush is a ‘man’ and highly respected by nearly everyone except of course the kool-aid drinkers of media soundbitres.

    1. Lukifer says:

      Bush was a good little trooper for the NWO and has been paid very well for it.

  56. Fre says:

    First you lose Carmelo and now Bush. Doesn’t anyone, except an America hater, want to go live in denver….NO!!!!
    Have fun all ya comunist traitors!

  57. Marc R. Azous says:

    I’m torn as Assange should be tried for treason in the US as an enemy combatant but at the same time the information released is eye opening and really declares our leaders are as incompetent as the day is long

  58. RJ says:

    So Liberals spout that Bush lied for going into Iraq and caused many deaths…
    Well then so did 98 percent of Congress Democrats who voted to give President Bush authority to make war against Saddam Hussein

    But, who is the biggest liar? The OBABA who made campaign Promises to get America OUT of Iraq, out of Gitmo, do away with the Patriot Act, and to reduce unemployment. The OBABA who hasn’t completed one promise! And human beings continue dying all over this planet under OBAMA’s leaderless ship.

  59. Ster says:

    Soooooo GLAD I moved out of Denver.

    What a bunch of idiots.. everyone’s mean, nasty and since I’ve left (two months ago), I have not once been asked for change or seen someone with a sign at an intersection.

    Good riddens, Denver.

  60. Steve says:

    To all conservative, why waste your time arguing with liberal /progressives. We
    all know that their version of the truth is vacant at best. Lets allow them to self
    implode along with ltheir leader while giving them a fleeting last glance in the
    rearview mirror and dismantle the tyranny they have constructed.Their lies and
    dogma are bare for all to see and as dead as all the victims of all the
    communist regimes.

  61. August Franklin Dunning says:

    thats why he stayed away, he is supporting his masters…

  62. imatelau says:

    Typical American hating lefties, hipocrites!!!! You hate America, love dictators, cry free speech but will do nothing to defend the Constitution!!!!
    Rome is burning, play on Nero…. play on!

  63. Ralph says:

    That’s funny, I heard Assange had also declined to attend, saying the exact same thing about Bush!

    Well, Dubya doesn’t need Denver anyway. he should head out to, say, Switzerland & get in some real skiiing…oh, wait, maybe not…

  64. Jackie says:

    I wouldn’t go near Denver with all those libs hanging out there.

  65. Jones N Charles says:

    hmmmm..who claimed to have campaigned in 57 states? Why B Whosaine Obama, of course. He’s a mensa,

  66. dhicks0559 says:

    The left loves to vilify Bush. Say what you will, Bush is a man of his word and his convictions. Disagree with him all you want, but the man who currently holds the office is a liar. History will paint Obama as a Marxist who attempted to destroy the capitalist system of the greatest economy the world has ever seen with increasingly more and more brazen and unconstitutional actions. If Sarah Palin were president and she was acting in such an imperial manner, the media would be clamoring for her impeachment. God help us all if he somehow manages to win reelection in 2012.

  67. David says:

    Jones N Charles, the 57 states comment was code to the Arab world. There are 57 current Caliphates. Yes our Muslim Prez bows to Mecca every day. For those who respect George W, I highly recommend his book “Decision Points,” a very thoughtful well written book. Bush was anything but a “cowbory.” He studied every single issue in depth with input from the finest thinkers. I do not expect brain dead liberals to have the courage to read it.

  68. Alamosq says:

    After reading the comments here, I have a new found respect for Denver. Most of the posts seem to be pro Bush. Maybe there are more conservatives there than you think. It seems that the libs are usually the minority; they are just so much louder and obnoxious making it seem like they are the majority – hope I’m right.

  69. rose says:

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, is great at least he had the guts to show and tell the world how crooked their leaders are and were

  70. Archie Bunker says:

    Don’t be so hard on Assange. If he treats all government leaders/dictators equally, then Assange is a modern day Robin Hood of sorts.

  71. Hec Jervae says:

    Bush started a war against a nation which had not attacked his country, without the sanction of the United Nations. Tell me why he is not a war criminal? Because you voted for him?

  72. American 1st says:

    LOL. This is hysterical. We sound like a bunch of cry babies. It doesn’t sound like the winning team. Whining team maybe. George Bush sucked and we’re adrift. What are we doing to set things right? Time will tell if we’re deserving of our heritage. Step up people. Your country needs you. If not now when? Quit complaining and DO SOMETHING! We’re failing on all fronts. You’re Americans! Exceptional? read your comments and you decide.

  73. Dr. Led Peint says:

    This is a tough call. Both Bush and Obama want to usher in the New World Order. That means horribly bad things for those of use who are not in the Power Elite class (most people aren’t).

    However, Obama, with his overt “in your face” anti-American attitude and his defiant “I will rule you or kill you” defiance of all that is moral, just, and good is clearly more dangerous than any American regime since Woodrow Wilson.

    Besides, Obama isn’t even our President. He is an ineligible usurper who came to power through the willingness of the opposition to run an Obama-lite candidate (RINO, John McCain) in 2008.

    Even worse, we don’t even know what this man’s real name is: is it Barry Soetoro or is it Barry Dunham? We don’t know what country he is a citizen of… is it Kenya, the U.K. or Indonesia? The world knows he was born in Kenya and ushered into Hawaii with a COLB… where is his birth certificate? Where is his passport?

    This man’s radical, communist, subversive, and terrorist ties are enough to disqualify him from even the smallest security clearance, yet foolish Americans believed the media hype of “Hope and Change” and paved the way for their own destruction.

    America has changed: there is no hope as long as the despot Obama reigns. He is our enemy.

    Elections have consequences and the 2008 vote set the stage for the most colossal demise of a nation in the history of the world.

    With all that said, the case can easily be made that Obama is worse than Bush, although the ultimate objective of both are identical.

  74. Scott Dance says:

    I would guess Assange would decline upon learning Bush was there.

  75. Steve says:

    “Bush doesn’t want to share a forum with someone who has “willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”” I guess that means he doesn’t want to share a stage with himself.

  76. Ruckus says:

    George Bush is the First Harvar MBA to ever be President. You can hadly call him stupid

  77. Jose Agosto says:

    The reason Bush is that his old self would have shown up from his drinking days. I think everybody would like him with things he had to say to Assange. Then again Wikileaks does not have nothing saying he ordered 9/11

  78. jimmycrackkorn says:

    The last thing I saw that resembled Polly, was the thing i flushed down the toilet this morning!

  79. Polly says:

    Oh, geesh, that reminds me, I just sharted myself!!

    1. iworkforaliving says:

      Go away Polly ..you sure have a lot of free time

  80. Olan says:

    To use vile and demeaning g language about a former President of the United States shows a lack of class.

  81. Dave says:

    He probably didn’t want the T&A feeling him up.

  82. Pouncekitty says:

    The Young Presiden’ts Organization is really stupid. Why not invite some Jews to speak, then invite some Islamic terrorists or neo-Nazis. Do you think you might have a problem with your invitation list? Who are these people, where did they learn how to put a conference together? Stupid!

  83. grundoon says:

    You know, in the good old days, it would have been months ago that Assange would have been tied to a post with a blindfold and the last words he would have heard would have been “ready, aim, fi—” That’s what should happen to the little jerk who sent him all the US material and if all US personnel holding top secret clearances got their own DVD of the event I guarantee you that it wouldn’t happen again.

  84. Gary Plyler says:

    Fantastic decision by the former president. This is the kind of action necessary to dissuade lefty activists in these types of organizations with getting away with inviting traitors like Assange. Their cute little stunt just cost the entire group a visit from a former president.
    Don’t let a small radical group of lefties control your organizations, then you will not have this kind of disappointments. Live and learn.

  85. Ernesto M says:

    Is it that easy to keep W back home? Good to know …

  86. Rob says:

    Integrity is lost of the vacuous drone that is the Liberal. They’re simply fortunate that breathing is an involuntary action. This lesson is lost on all of them.

  87. Hank Warren says:

    Forget Bush and Forget Assange, his big business movie deal and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel who the media hates, E.A. Blayre III.

  88. bman says:

    He probably just didn’t want to go to Denver. I completely understand

  89. Russ Hicks says:

    “I do understand, but in the same breath he has let down a group of people who might have come just to see him,” said Nicolakakis.” Really? Bush let them down? How about the idiot who invited Assange? Does he have any responsibility in this?

  90. jackspratts says:

    Bush has nothing to defend – he would have had my permission to attack – you are in La La land somewhere – Assange is as enemy of the USA and as such you have aided and abetted. Shame on you to assume that a President of the USA would think it’s okay – Jungle savvy hey like the Kenyan?

  91. cwm says:

    Shrub is actually a rather smart and clever guy he just plays the idiot to his followers the white trash wannabe wealthiy dopes who are the real idiots.

    1. Rascal69 says:

      Kinda like the idiot that Obama plays to his followers? You just can’t fix stupid.

  92. gary says:

    Assange is the one who should be insulted. Assange is a hero and I voted for Bush.

  93. Kfor Christ says:

    looks like they the code message is out.. ALL SEEING EYE… then DENVER next to it… There is a huge event about to happen, this is code for them to fly to Denver Airport, There will be something KNarly going on in March.,. THEY CALLED BACK ALL US AMBASSADORS?? COMET? FEMA TRAINING FOR NEW MADRID FAULT DESASTER??? Whats going on?

  94. radarnj says:

    Wow! Now I remember what it was like to have leadership with convictions and actions to back up them up with courage.

  95. James Hilyard says:

    I’m not sure why Bush would of canceled, Assange is going to be in Jail in one country or the other, either for Rape, or for Treason. With that said, some of the hate mongers need to lighten up a bit. Practice that tolerance that you preach so much about. Bush is no longer the President, and the current one has been on the Job for 2 years now. I guess voting “Present” just doesn’t cut it when you are in charge. Maybe it’s time for another vacation.

  96. Crazyhorse says:

    How many of you Idiots are there in Denver anyway?

  97. president_assange says:

    It just shows that Bush has never believed in anything. Like Clinton and Obama, he’s a Progressive who has always lived off the taxpayer. Julian on the other hand is a most-righteous dude, who may sacrifice his freedom for world peace and reform of Western Fascism. Thanks W, for telling us what we already know. Oh, and have fun looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life.

    1. president_assange says:

      This is too good not to addend. It should be remembered that “W” used collusion to dodge the draft in the National Guard, and (like FDR) he instigated carnage-for-profit. Which makes it all so gratifying to see the repudiation of a century of Western Fascism, occurring (coincidentally) with the emergence of freedom and free markets in Arabia. This diseased planet is not worthy of patriots like Mr. Assange or Gandhi.

      1. Wanders says:

        GOD……I wonder how much of this guys credit load we paid for….

      2. Rascal69 says:

        How long have you been of your meds?

  98. Sandalwood says:

    Bravo! Brave! I still love the guy.

  99. GSNP says:

    So WHERE can Assange speaking at Conference be viewed since no media was allowed to report on it.
    Denver Post: “Assange appeared by video on Friday at the YPO conference, but the news media were not allowed to view his appearance.”

    Here also is interview on DemocracyNow.org of Glenn Greenwald [constitutional lawyer] regarding Assange and our government etc.
    http://www.democracynow.org/2011/2/24/glenn_greenwald_on_the_assange_extradition

  100. GSNP says:

    there’s that “awaiting moderation” thing again.
    Our government is hard at work.
    News Media is for me not thee.

  101. John Kelly says:

    I am a fan of a fan Assange. He told me what the government does not what me to know. We use to have a free press that did pretty much the same thing, but that was long ago. Assange did no harm to the US. He did not get us involved in either Iraq or Afghanistan. He did report that the US has no clue as to where all of the money went. Assange did not send a drone that killed a family during a wedding ceremony. He did get it reported. The truth is dangerous, mostly to those in power. That is why they are so determined to silence Assange. I wonder. What did happen to our press? Went Hollywood I think. Became entertainment. Blonds with big hair and tight blouses telling me what Obama wants me to know. I’ll pass and wait for the next Wikileak report.

    1. RayMaxwell says:

      That is a naive approach. There are secrets that need to be kept in order to protect lives of innocents-foreigners who want the freedom that you and I enjoy and are willing to risk their lives to help us win it for them. Also our brave soldiers and spies who are fighting to make sure that we do not have another 911. Wake up-there are bad people in this world and blindly publishing everything helps those that would cut you throat open as easily as you clip your toe nails.

  102. John Doe says:

    Who’s Obama?

    1. Jane Dough says:

      What’s an Obama?

  103. Jesse James Payette-Steinberg says:

    Sort of hard for Assange to attend, Bush has nothing to worry about.

  104. RayMaxwell says:

    Assange’s actions have cost people their lives. He is a dangerous terrorist-an enemy of the United States. Bush was right to not allow the dignity of his office to be diminished by the appearance.

  105. Bob Carson says:

    Bush made the only decision a sensible operson could make. For fun, I read some of the Bush hater left wing posts concerning this event. Pathetic little creatures, aren’t they? Of course, we are fortunate that they live in a country that does not punish people for stupidity. Actually, we seem to reward it.

  106. five2eightOH says:

    Damn people are quick to denegrate, discriminate, and differentiate each other. Guess what, we all crawled from the same primordial sludge. I guess 6 million years aint enough time to figure out that survival is a team sport, might work better if we put down the rocks and clubs. Hatred doesnt seem to have gotten us very far, maybe give love a chance? If you want change, take up the reins and do something positive in the community, set an example for others; haters and criticizers aren’t doing anthing but wasting resources, the most valuable of which is their own life! And to all you Denver haters, mile high baby, mile high!! Hate somewhere else, we’ll be just fine witout ya

  107. Allenl says:

    Haven’t seen W share a forum with O either. Probably for the same reason. “doesn’t want to share a forum with someone who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

  108. tzopilotl says:

    …yeah, dey has klass, well, it was bush’s last chance to meet an intelligent
    human being, guess he’ll just have to stay in texas where people are friendly.

  109. Jim says:

    Regardinng Jim’s comment at 4:33am Feb-26… You are not worthy to be called Jim

  110. Bush supporter says:

    I find it very interesting that most of the LEFT complains that GB went to war in Irag to FREE the people from a dictator but are quiet regarding Libya. At least GB was trying to bring freedom to others. Wasnt perfect, but at least he tried. What will Obama do for Libya? NATO? Nothing will happen until 1000’s are killed!!
    Assange is NOT a hero!! Some of our government secrets should be just that, secret. We DO NOT need to know some of those things and Assange is a terrorist who should find himself in a Texas electric chair……

    1. bob says:

      When I read posts like this, I see that with our ignorant populous base we have no chances of ever being a great country again,

  111. Morris Berry says:

    All you liberals need to look the term “useful idiot” it as a phrase coined by the Russians to refer to the Democrats in the 70’s

  112. Hank Warren says:

    Forget Assange, his big business movie deal and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel who the media hates, E.A. Blayre III.

  113. davec says:

    So the measles outbreak is Bushes fault TOO?

    Oh, wait, he didnt go there.

    But logic and evidence arent needed by radical Liberals to foist their hate-mongering.

  114. Spence Covey says:

    I can’t even believe Bush can show his face in public. This guy was such a loser. As for Assage, he’s ten times the man that Bush would ever hope to be.

  115. solo_poke says:

    Anybody who would kill, maim, torture in the name of freedom is an inbred hypocrite. Next come the sellouts who would bend over for a dollar. This group of loosers has been taking over power bit by bit. Today you are all about to become usefull idiots to be used at will by CORPORATE BIG BROTHER.

    If you are not willing to fight for your freedom like the Egyptians, you are all doomed to a future of American Idiot Idol and slavery trough debt.

  116. BUSHTRIMMER says:

    Hank, Assange has huge lawyer bills to pay, nobody there is getting wealthy. Wall street on the other hand, every clown there stuffing their pockets with your money while deflecting attention anywhere else.

    Open your eyes and your mind will follow, quit voting against your best interest just because some day you may possibly perhaps have money. The odds are much better you will be in jail somewhere being opressed. Those who have a few million better watch out, they are next on the banksters lists for being relieved of their $. Unless you are a BUSH you are not safe, lucky for us we have BUSH contained and if he dares show up here in Calgary this fall, we expect to see handcuffs on him.

  117. JohnnyJoJoJabbarShabbadoo says:

    “doesn’t want to share a forum with someone who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”
    really george? what about a million dead in iraq and thousands of u.s. soldiers killed and maimed for your lies? i guess that doesn’t count. ditto the u.s. economy you put in the toilet, and for trampling the bill of rights and spying on americans. you gotta lotta nerve monkey boy, lotta nerve.
    the best part is you set up all kinds of illegal precedents that obama is continuing. fannnntastic. rise up people, the rnc and the dnc are just two criminal syndicates playing the people for chumps.

    1. Missy says:

      I guess you had a problem with Clinton in Bosnia too?

  118. David says:

    Bush rocks. Libs suck. Obama is worthless. This forum is hilarious. Now for a few more pages of leftist whining.

    1. Vivian Bennett-Cohan says:

      Spot on David..

  119. Missy says:

    Even out of office Bush’s got more class and the ability to make the better decision than that community organizer in the white house. The “O” just can’t make the right decisions. He’s either playing golf, basketball or hobknobbing with the goober smoochers. He can’t deliver on his pre-election commitments and is an overall disappointment for many voters. He sides against taxpayers and stands with the unions……….someone please fast forward the clock so this man can be out of office. Let’s see when he’s a past President if HE can keep HIS MOUTH shut like Bush has with him, but we already know what he will do.

  120. Vivian 23 says:

    This is called having CORE VALUES, Obamites…Of course, I’m sure you don’t understand that!!

    1. Vivian Bennett-Cohan says:

      From one Vivian to another, I agree. Bush has Core values and it shows.

  121. Pot says:

    I love how he chose not to attend due to his claims that Assange has caused “great harm to the interests of the United States”. After all, his policies have done more to harm this nation than almost any President in history.

  122. Vivian Bennett-Cohan says:

    Assange has done great harm to the United States, and I love that W has decided not to go.

    George W Bush is one classy gentleman.

  123. Vivian Bennett-Cohan says:

    Thank God for the Tea Party, Thank God for the freshmen republicans who are going to do what they were voted in too do…

    Bring America back…

  124. bob says:

    Well let’s see. Bush

    Introduced us to the stimulus
    Dropped taxes buy $4.4 trillion adding to deficit spending
    Pushed Greenspan to drop FED interest causing a subprime bubble
    Attacked a country killing over 120,000 people without provocation
    Invaded a second country leading into a unwinnable war situation
    Introduced us to Cheney and Runsfield which created the monstrous Halberton/Blackwater fiasco
    Grew the government by 19% (more than his last 7 predecessors)
    Signed into law 11 onerous bills that deeply impaired civil liberties (like patriot act)
    Broke three world laws of the Geneva convention
    Substantially progressed in making the country a prison state
    Signed in to law Part D o Medicare which is expected to cost more than Obamacare
    Endorsed the bail outs of AIG, Bears Stern and Morgan Stanley
    Didn’t even attempt to follow through with main campaign promise shoring up SS

    I could on for a while here. I live in Denver and I’m glad he is staying in Texas. What ever crimes Assange did (if any) are small potatoes compared to Bush’s abuse of power.

    1. Oren says:

      And you stay out of Texas. We get even. Don’t mess with Texas.little mind.

        Oren, thank you for your advice. As I understand Texas, you folks love to kill people down there. I sure you are OK with the 120,000 dead as result of invading and devastating a unprovoked country. Quite frankly my “little mind” doesn’t advocate needless killing.

    2. Bob says:

      Did I mention that Bush also breached three constitutional amendments and Habeas Corpus.

  125. MichaelEdits says:

    Don’t worry about it Dubya, when it comes to doing harm to America, we’ll always know that you’re number one.

  126. Truth says:

    Sausage is a wanted child molester its no wonder Bush doesnt want to be in the same room…It funny to see who the heros to the liberals are??? Child molesters …pathetic

  127. wncchester says:

    “Eric Kurtzman from Las Vegas said, “If Bush had a problem with Assange or anything he said, Bush should have come and represented his case,”

    Let me see if I understand this; YOU want BUSH to come to you to try convinece you to let him speak to your silly groups meaningless “Leadership Conference” without A. Strange? You have a BIG ogic disconnect there kiddo and you are probably better suited for the weird little guy anyway.

  128. BOStinks says:

    I for one, miss President Bush!

      1. bob says:

        Oren, you live in a state that has killed more people than all other states combined in the last ten years. The collusion in Texas is renowned. Texas imprisons more people per-capita than any other state. Your state has the second highest state deficit. Your state is filled with other flag-waving morons who define life by words like hero, red/white/blue, patriot and allegiance – people who have no capacity for objectionable thinking. You can’t possibly miss GW Bush. Your state IS GW Bush.

  129. DawnJ says:

    There seem to be a lot of dim people here. Liberty and Golly Polly were obviously referring to the comment left by useful idiot Polly. Geez, must be the thin air.

  130. bozo says:

    Eric Kurtzman from Las Vegas said something, but nobody knows who Eric Kurtzman is, so nobody paid attention.

  131. Oren says:

    Bush is a class act and his detractors are low level morons. If Assange is quality material, hell, go for Obama he’s worse. He now has the authority to declare something unconstitutional. How we’re not sure.

  132. Oren says:

    ASSange is a promiscous Aussie that can’t keep his pants on. And he’s selected to address them. I’d stay home too. Denver has lost it’s good sense.

    ASStrange has a personality disorder or the worst kind.

    Time to take Denver off the list of places to go back to.

  133. William Ripskull says:

    Good for Bush. He’s 10 times the man Assange, Obama, or any of the liberal morons are.

    RE: “SlapHappy
    Wasnt it Voltaire who said liberty was the freedom to choose when youll get beaten to death or shot in the face…?”

    French ‘philosophy’ offers only despair. So, what does that offer to the US where we are so un-french?

  135. Vince Foster says:

    Bush isn’t qualified to lick Assanges backside.

    1. rschulte says:

      Why!!!

      Vince, are Are you offering to lick Assange’s backside???? Go ahead, make your self happy!!!

  136. dee♠ says:

    thank you, president bush, for standing up for america with class and conviction. lthe hateful, juvenile language of denver liberals is inconsequential.

  137. HStephen says:

    To those of you who think Assange is a hero for doing what he did, can you please give us all your personal data so we can post it all on the internet. I.E who your doctors are, where you were born, where you went to school, SSN, drivers license number etc, etc,

  138. Annerkist says:

    You halfwits all STILL believe in the left/right paradigm, amazing–it was concocted to get the imbecilic underclass arguing, classic divide and conquer. Mission accomplished, apparently. Y’all probably still believe in the Easter Bunny too…morons.

  139. GSNP says:

    OK so Bush cancelled — So WHERE is the speech to be heard of Julian Assange?

  140. GSNP says:

    Bush cancelled but did USG get its way…. again?
    “Assange appeared by video on Friday at the YPO conference, but the news media were not allowed to view his appearance.”

    So WHERE can Assange speech BE heard?

  141. GSNP says:

    So, did USG get its way…. again?

    “Assange appeared by video on Friday at the YPO conference, but the news media were not allowed to view his appearance.”

  142. derp says:

    Sure does smell like Koch in here. Lemme guess, Drudge linked another CBS Denver article? You can always tell when the drudge factor has been brought to your hometown news site. Hundreds of comments, very little reason.

    RE: smprfi33

    “Useful idiot” was the term Stalin used to describe those progressive types that can be counted on to side with the enemies of their own country and against their own best interest.
    Liberty’s Comrade got it right: leftist dupes.

    Dont confuse liberals with facst! They’ll just look at you with a dumber than usual stare at you

    1. bob says:

      The term liberal actually means the opposite if fascist by true definition. Where you may be confused is when you endorse the collective progressive Democratic agenda calling yourself a liberal. Democrats are NOT “liberal” by true definition. You cannot name one Democrat value that endorses “liberty” (as in the world definition of liberal). The collective progressive Democratic agenda is SOCIALIST by partisan directive. Socialist directives are very much fascist my friend. I’m afraid it is you who may suffer from an identity crisis.

  144. Chippy55 says:

    Obama raised cigarette taxes on his base as soon as he got in office, remember that in 2012. Obama says he “backs the unions” in Wisconsin, and weekly visits by Trumka and Stern to the White House verify his stance, which essentially is that the unions want to keep having the good citizens of Wisconsin continue to provide them with free health insurance and free (or low cost) retirement benefits. If you put $9K into your IRA, and it will be worth $150K, duh, that money comes from ALL taxpayers in the state.
    Obama, Pelosi and Harry Reid are still acting if Federal Judge Vinson did not issue his 78 page opinion that the Affordable (lol) Health Care Act is illegal and Unconstitutional. Obama’s administration has issued 733 waivers to the illegal and Unconstitutional Health Care Act, so, how can you waive something that’s illegal? Duh, would that not mean that Obama’s waiver not makes it legal to tax individuals, under threat of a $2,500 fine, if they don’t follow the instructions, i.e., purchase an Unconstitutional item?

  145. Norwegianbear says:

    President Bush is a principled man. That’s why he was a good president. We miss him.

  146. Rschulte says:

    When the Wikileaks dump came out, all supposedly was to embarrass Bush, all it did do is proved he was right, It mentioned that Iraq had WMDs, it showed the efforts the US made to protect Iraqis lives and showed Irans involvement with helping the terrorists. The MSM has finally realized this, that there is nothing here otherwise we’d still be hearing this. What the leaks did accomplished was expose Obama’s own incompetence.

    You “Bush haters” have nothing left in your little warped world view, Just take your meds and get over it. Your guy Obama has clearly won out as the very worst president we’ve ever had (beating Carter and LBJ) a fact I never thought could happen. You can’t defend anything he’s done for this country, so attacking others is all you’ve got. It’s really pathetic!!! This proves character matters,… Assange is a fool and his 15 minutes of fame has just faded out.

    1. seribol says:

      usa is great country, i love USA,americans are great national,we are love USA,i want to visit to usa,i live in mongolia,Barck Obama,bush is great mans,i love Obama and Bush,i love Hillary Clinton

  147. Liberty0rDeath says:

    What’s worse than unrelenting Bush bashing? Using every possible forum to spout your venomous hate

  148. sailordude says:

    Is it just me, or is Bush in the news more then when he was the President? I guess it’s from the book promotion thing. I was a big supporter of the man, but he really lost it during that second term, so much so that he got us Obama, and that has been a real disaster. I hope he doesn’t end up like a retired Democrat President and never go away. Then again, maybe the liberals can get a taste for what the rest of us have to put up with always listening to Carter and Clinton! That would swerve them right!

  149. mister C says:

    Bill Clinton would stand in for Bush

  150. justavet says:

    Once again I will not argue with an idiot because it brings me down to his level and he will win by experience

  151. DavidK says:

    Sounds like someone has class and will not be associated by being on the same stage with a lowlife. Maybe appearing with people putting countries in disrepair due to their actions is not a big thing for some these days. The taunting of this article is dissevering of the armpits of the street.

  152. Steve Johnson says:

    Jim writes: Bush canceled Denver & a recent visit to Europe because of his possible arrest for war crimes. Bush’s world continues to shrink. If he were proud of his accomplishments while President, he should have faced his accusers and told them so. I misunderestimate him no more.

    Well Jim, President Bush did NOT cancel his visit to Europe, the invite was withdrawn out of concern some fringe elements may demonstrate their intellectual vacuity by holding rallies urging the arrest of the President and turning the event into a thrid class circus,,, kinda like the regressives in the Wisconsin legislature who are afraid to show up and do their jobs. I’d say Jim here is the definition of a useful idiot.

  153. Donato says:

    Good for hou, George!!

  154. Tommy says:

    Now Denver is another place I will not visit. I am going to start only traveling to vacation places that do not kiss the left’s butt.

  155. Mike Brooks says:

    Let’s see, a choice between listening to some fat dumb blowhard like Bush (or either of the Clinton’s or Obama) or a genuine investigative jounalist like Assange. And you seem to think most people think that is a difficult choice?
