Bush has been honored by some of his neighbors

What POS writing! The AP wouldn't write that Obama was greeted by SOME of his disciples.

Pres. & Barbara Bush have more class in their belly button lint than the Obamas have in their entire background.

“Pres. & Barbara Bush have more class in their belly button lint than the Obamas have in their entire background.”

I couldn’t agree more.

Classy people who have sacrificed much for this country.Class and sacrifice are clearly words that the Obamas will *die* never having learned how to spell,let alone exhibit.

Probably not, but I’d bet he has the balls to do it.

I really don’t care much for the Bushes tho they certainly were better than what we have now.

On the other hand, he did serve honorably in WWII and does deserve credit for that.

Liberalweight. Those pesky things wander all over if you don’t have something to keep them in place.

I had the same reaction. Compared to Carter and Clinton, he couldn’t be less deserving of it. He’s got lots more class then they do.

While the First Lady has aged gracefully, I still like this image of her in 1940.

As newly weds, they had a flight training assignment not far from where I live on Grosse Ile, MI, at the Grosse Ile Naval Air Station. Here's a picture of the GINAS, from the air.

I have a dear friend, that in the early '40s was active with the USO at GINAS and clearly remembers playing bridge with Barbara Bush, the wife of a young officer here for carrier training at the big circle in the middle of the airport, something called an "aerodrome", where they'd line up a "make shift" carrier deck for take off and landing drills. She remembers BB as a very nice and friendly young lady and great bridge player.

I have friends at that field today.

Do not land in the pattern wrong, and overfly the Canadian Airspace, the FEDS will send the Predators out after you.

BTW.....

Their is a public beach not far from that anchor. Younger and Bolder I swam in it's 59 degree water after about a 4 mile run to get their....

My mother had that hair style.

Seeing a photo like that reminds me of my desire to turn back the clock on so many things....... er, except the computer, widescreen color tv, my AR, well, and a few other things, but I love the history of that time.

We are not allowed to post at this link, but it’s a revival of the GWB worship threads of last year. As far as I know only GWB gets this protection, I think because he gives up the pictures to the site. December they forgot the warning, and so I posted “Please go President Bush, you have done enough” and all hell broke loose. I got yelled at and zipped and all that followed me. This post here is free land.,

The Bushbots make me sick. You’d have to be a complete nitwit to fall for a New England blue blood, Yale educated elitist who pretends to be a cowboy yet is deathly afraid of horses. George W. Carpetbagger is the worst thing to happen to the GOP since Nelson Rockefeller.

I was born in 48 and I’m convinced I should have been here 40 years sooner.

Gator,

I was born in '43 and wish I could go back to '48, as a five year old, with a five year old's body and the experience of an almost 66 year old. Talk about dreaming an impossibility but worth the typing.

Stay well and have a good time, too.

Some argue that I am a 5 year old trapped in a 60 year old body... they may be right.

You take care too.

That’s a weird thread. Seems almost religious in nature.

So by “trolls, disruptors and other idiots” they mean conservatives who have taken the blinders off? Bush “disrupted” the conservative agenda didn’t me?

Sanity Island? They don’t mean Fantasy Island? Whatever.

But anyway RAO1125 wasn’t he a kid when they moved to Texas? He has lived most of his life there.

RE :”That’s a weird thread. Seems almost religious in nature.”

Every week for four years. Imagine Ron Paulers trying that. I was almost tempted to copy the site and replace GWB with Obama and family for laughs. Probably get kicked off.

GWB had the chance of a lifetime to be another Reagan .
