Skip to comments.Jenna Bush on mom Laura: She's a 'Secret Rastafarian'
Posted on 05/03/2010 3:51:43 PM PDT by Bad~Rodeo
Fairly certain you'll never see former First Lady Laura Bush with dreadlocks? Think again.
In an interview scheduled to air on Tuesday's "The Oprah Show," Jenna Bush reveals that her mother is "a secret Rastafarian" who "[plays] Bob Marley" around the house.

Needed, a pic of the former first lady with dreds
What is the implication of this remark?
So one of the best FLOTUS’ (Laura was one of the best, ever!) is way cooler than the current waist-belted wanna-be queen of America.
Works for me.
Relax, only humor
I think that’s what someone means when they say this.
Playing Bob Marley does not make someone a Rastafarian, secret or otherwise...
That Jenna has a sense of humor and is not aware or doesn’t care that anything she says will be used to reflect badly on her family.
Children should be seen and not heard. For over-indulged children, that should be forever.
I don’t know why but this column made me want a cold beer...
Not dope, ganja, you dope, ganja!
Humor? Humor? There ain't no humor around here anymore.......Too many people spoilin' for fights.
It doesn’t really matter now, but it seems like Jenna is saying her mother smokes that stuff.
Sounds like a daughter who has fun with her mom (and vice versa, I suspect).
I always liked the twinkle in Mrs Bush's eye when she spoke of her husband and daughters. There appears to be lots of warm, family humor in that bunch.
LOL! I just can’t picture her singing “I shot the sheriff” while vaccuming. Maybe she changed the lyrics (like we all do sometimes)
“Cheney shot his buddy,
but he did not shoot the President”
I am pleased that Jenna has not allowed herself to be manipulated into silence because of the FACT that the MSM and political enemies will attempt to use anything she says to reflect badly on her family. I wish more Republicans were like her. And in the end, the folks this REALLY reflects "badly on" are those who fall for the claptrap that this is somehow diminishing to Laura Bush and the Bush family.
They say that your "character" is defined by what you do when no one is looking, and I believe that is true. However, "character" is equally defined by what you do when EVERYONE is looking. My wise and wonderful dad taught me that if you make your choices based on what others will think of you, then others will control you.
Anybody stupid enough to think that Jenna's revelation says something "bad" about her mom is too stupid to be controlling anybody but themselves, let alone Jenna Bush.
Marley converted to Catholicism before he died. A speaker in Hawaii who travels the circuit giving presentations on his faith tells of visiting Marley’s gravesite, seeing rosaries and other Catholic representations of the faith, and talking with the Catholic bishop who presided over his conversion. Marley also renounced to him his former life of getting and staying stoned on pot.
Some more things we should never know.
I’d never heard reggae until my son’s wedding. His brothers-in-law had wired the family compound and played reggae pretty much the whole weekend. Although I’m a classical and bluegrass fan, I have to say there is much to be said in favor of reggae. Unlike rap, it is restrained, cool. Guess you could say I’m a convert. sd

My daughters would rib me like that and their father too.
Jenna is open and trusting and pretty high spirited and obviously adores her Mother.
I hate threads where people indulge in the kind of meaness I see on this one. NOt you, others.
I am worn out with hating, despising liberals. I don’t have any sympathy for those who look to judge the children of GWB.
Jenna isn’t a child. And you are not very nice.
there have great First Ladies and Laura Bush is one of them. She went about her job as FLOTUS and certainly didn’t pout or whine or complain (like SOMEONE else we all know & despise)about not having a special agenda,project,or cause. SLaura Bush is one of the individuals where her actions spoke louder than words. Of all the 1st Ladies she was one of my favs and she KNEW how to dress appropriately,too;the essence of conservative female diginity.
The first mental picture I had was of Laura with chicken fat dreads and a big spliff dangling from the corner of her mouth.
“Humor? Humor? There ain’t no humor around here anymore.......Too many people spoilin’ for fights. “
Just what the hell do you mean by that?
"Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright
~ Bob Marley
I wish more people knew this, especially his followers, or whatever they might be called.
I think I may throw up! Why is Laura going on Oprah?
She could sell her book without giving that cow her business.
So sad. Bad decision
Its code for Laura liking 420. :)
That she likes reggae music.
Laura believes Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia (aka Jah Rastafari), is the second coming of Jesus Christ on Earth, and she smokes cannabis to worship him? Weird.
