Bush jokes, reflects at White House portrait unveiling

Washington (CNN) – There were smiles, laughter and tears - but little politics - when former Presidents George W. Bush and his father, George H. W. Bush, joined current President Barack Obama at the White House for the unveiling Thursday of the younger Bush's official portrait.

An emotional ceremony in the East Room saw the new White House residents thanking their predecessors for their service to the nation and for helping them out during the move more than three years ago.

    This gesture of the presidential couple inviting the former occupants of the White House for the unveiling of their portraits painted by such talented Master, was of utmost elegance, a sentiment that is simply impossible to those who have been barking for the past three years and a few months. Well, some even lack of the finesse to know the true meaning of the adjective "ridiculous", their snappy reaction proving that in fact, they think it's an insult. Anyway, all I can say is that those who cannot stand the guts of President Obama cannot get to sleep without the help of sleeping pills, as long as the election is over...

    "Is CNN really caring about their own news, or Obama's re election!!!"
