George Bush Forgives Kanye West

Former President George Bush has forgiven rapper Kanye West for the public pot shots West aimed at Bush in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when he famously said on TV that Bush didn't care about black people.
Bush said that he appreciates the rapper's regret after West was questioned in a taped interview on Wednesday's Today show about his 2005 comment, which Bush mentions in his recent memoirs as the lowest point of his administration.
West now says that "I didn't have the grounds to call him a racist. I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that we as human beings don't always choose the right words."
Bush was shown the tape of West during his live Today interview and said: "I'm not a hater. I don't hate Kanye West."
The olive branch has been extended and the hatchets have been buried between Bush and West.
Do you think Bush should guest star in one of West's videos?
