I think POTUS flew home

'Cause he'll have to lead the country in the funeral rites of a former President. And the GOP, as craven as they are, will thank the gods for the week's worth of distraction.

But I think this is why.

1. That doesn't make any sense.

He could just as easily pull the plug on his vacation if GHWB passes.

If GHWB passes it will take a week for funeral services to be set.

And last but not least, GHWB could linger weeks.

2. Oh, yes.. If/when he dies, we are talking at least 7-10 days worth of "mourning" events...

before the final "goodbye"

Surely some here remember the whole Reagan spectacle?

5. no. he will make sure the Repukes don't get to say

 

he wasn't in town to get this deal done in an 11th hour. He is politically shrewd to head back as soon as practical after Christmas day.

6. I'm not so sure.


Wasn't PBO supposed to come home before news of xPGHWB came to light?
