Apparently Barack Obama didn't have time or the good manners to wish former President George W Bush well after his heart surgery. No class. How does Obama respond to the fact that he can call everybody else (gay married couple, Sandra Fluke, etc.) but he can't find one minute to call his predecessor?
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday: Obama "obviously wishes him well." No, there is nothing obvious about it.
MOSCOW, August 8 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has wished former US President George W. Bush a speedy and complete recovery after his heart operation earlier this week, the Kremlin said Thursday.
Bush, 67, had a stent implanted in his heart Tuesday after artery blockage was discovered during a routine check-up Monday. Bush spokesman Freddy Ford said the former president is “in high spirits” and eager to resume his normal schedule.
Russian-US relations have soured recently following Russia’s decision to grant asylum to fugitive intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.
The White House said Wednesday US President Barack Obama has canceled a planned summit with President Putin next month.
