George W. Bush To Be Hung In White House Ceremony
Well, to be more precise, his official portrait:
George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, are expected to return to the White House later this month to be honored by President Barack Obama with the unveiling of their official portraits that will hang at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The White House confirmed on Friday that the Bushes are slated to revisit their Washington home of eight years on May 31 for a rare joint appearance between the current and past president.
Additional details about the event, first reported by The Dallas Morning News, will be released in the next couple weeks, and we’ve put in a call to Bush’s Dallas office as well.
The ceremony, which will be the former president’s first public visit to the White House in over two years, is sure to draw lots of attention given that it’s an election year and that Bush informally endorsed Obama’s GOP rival, Mitt Romney, earlier this week.
And no, I could not resist that post title.
