a bush barb

Apologies for posting a Bush video, but the last line made me 🙂

    I spit out my water too when I heard Mrs Bush say that 😆

      I had to laugh at that too. Barbara Bush has had other comments about wackjobs in her party. Didn’t she say something about SP needing to stay in Alaska? 2 thumbs up on that one!!!

    I can’t put aside the harm this family has caused. In any other situation, this scene would be touching, but I just can’t forget who these people are, and what they’ve done in the world – and what they still want to do with their other son, Jeb. I just can’t.

      I absolutely agree with you but you got to admit any barb going at Boehner from one of his own is fun 😉

      I have to agree. I’m still scratching my head over his conclusion in the ceremony.

      But hooray and congrats to the other recipients.

    Apology accepted. Now don’t do it again. 😉

    I was so pissed yesterday when I woke up to the Today show doing the “news” segment and mentioned that Mrs. Obama said it was important to keep the romance alive even in the White House and the woman who was doing the reporting added her personal commentary, “Perhaps a little TMI,” yet in the next breath, they introduced the segment about the Bush love letters! OMG! Talk about cognitive dissonance.

    BTW, Sec. Clinton is supposedly giving a “big” speech right now about internet freedom (as it relates to the democratic uprising in the middle east) and there’s not one media outlet (that I can find) showing this “big” speech.

    Anybody got a link?
