U.S. President George W. Bush and Republican gubernatorial candidate..for Massachusetts Mitt Romney pass one another on stage during a fund..raising event for Romney in Boston October 4, 2002. Romney, the former..Salt Lake Olympic chief, is in a tough rac
Ah, crap.
While Bill Clinton stumps for Obama, you've no doubt been wondering what the last Republican president, He Who Shall Not Be Shamed, has been up to. Surely, he's been using his massive popularity among Republicans and swing voters to get out the vote for the current Republican, right?

Alas, no. But George W. Bush has been given a very special job to do, one that I'm sure Mitt Romney himself tasked him with. The former president is today off in the Cayman Islands, where he will be giving a keynote address at the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit and no doubt popping in to say hello to some of Mitt's many investments. On tomorrow's agenda, no doubt: cashing the check given to him by the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit. Yes, nothing says political leader like scheduling a visit to the one place in the world that your party's current presidential candidate would really, really like people to stop talking about.

To be fair to Bush, it's not like he has a full plate these days. It was either that or attend a summit on the latest in automotive rooftop pet containment devices, and those people have way less money than "alternative investors."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
