TAMPA, FL — Former President George W. Bush is skipping the Republican National Convention.
Bush, a frequent target of President Obama, is sitting out next month’s Tampa convention because he’s enjoying his time away from the spotlight, his rep said.
“President Bush was grateful for the invitation to the Republican National Convention,” spokesman Freddy Ford said.
“He supports Gov. (Mitt) Romney and wants him to succeed. President Bush is confident that Mitt Romney will be a great President. But he’s still enjoying his time off the political stage and respectfully declined the invitation to go to Tampa.”
