Thank you former President George W. Bush (On Hillary Supporter Website)
Hillbuzz.com ^ | 11/11/09

Posted on 11/11/2009 1:58:03 PM PST by MissesBush

We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura.

If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.

Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.

We were convinced that ANYONE who was president would have done what Bush did, and would have set that right tone of leadership in the wake of that disaster. President Gore, President Perot, President Nader, you name it. ANYONE, we assumed, would have filled that role perfectly.

Well, we told you before how much the current president, Dr. Utopia, made us realize just how wrong we were about Bush. We shudder to think what Dr. Utopia would have done post-9/11. He would have not gone there with a bullhorn and struck that right tone. More likely than not, he would have been his usual fey, apologetic self and waxed professorially about how evil America is and how justified Muslims are for attacking us, with a sidebar on how good the attacks were because they would humble us.

Honestly, we don’t think President Gore would have been much better that day. The world needed George W. Bush, his bullhorn, and his indominable spirit that day…and we will forever be grateful to this man for that.

As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.

FOR HOURS.

The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them at a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.

You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, and you’ll answer to us.

We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all they’ve done, and continue to do. They didn’t have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

The Obamas should have done that.

But didn’t.

Wouldn’t.

Thank goodness George W. is still on his watch, with wonderful Laura at his side.

We are blessed as a nation to have these two out there…just as we are blessed to have the Clintons on the job, traveling the world doing the good they do.

And we are blessed to have Dick Cheney, wherever he is, keeping tabs on all that’s going on and speaking out when the current administration does anything too reckless and dangerous.

Cheney’s someone else we villainized and maligned in the past who we were also wrong about. There has never been a Vice President, including Gore, Biden, or Mondale, who was more supportive of gay rights than “Darth Cheney”. There has never been a Vice President more spot-on right about the dangers facing this country from Islamic terrorism.

We live in strange, strange times indeed.

We are now officially committed fans of George W. and Laura Bush. We are fans of Dick Cheney. Our gratitude for them makes us newly protective of them, and the continued role they play in this country.

After the primary battle of 2008, we never thought we’d go back to Texas for anything, but sometime in 2010 we want to find some event in Dallas the Bushes will be at so at least one of us can go up to them, tell them we are deeply sorry for ever thinking ill of them, and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for their service to America.

We’re sure they will just stare at us and wonder why these gay Chicagoans are crying, but we don’t think we can get through a meeting with them without being emotional.

What they did at Ft. Hood for those families humbles us. Every day, the Bushes are most likely doing something just like it behind the scenes.

We hope if any of you encounter them you will let them know this is deeply appreciated beyond partisan lines.

We will never look at the Bushes, the Bush presidencies, or their legacies the same again…and someday when his presidential library is built, we will be so proud to visit there and tell anyone will listen about November 10th, 2009, the day we finally appreciated former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura.

Thank you for your service, Mr. President. We’re sorry we didn’t appreciate you while you were in office, but we thank Heaven we’ve wised up and can see the good you are out there doing, under the radar, today.

*******

NOTE: Because some of you wanted to re-read it again and have emailed us to ask for it, here’s what we said to President Bush on January 20th, at the beginning of The Golden Age of Hope and Change and Unicorns.

It’s actually really interesting to read the comments from way back then, to see either how mad at us people were that we dared to say anything nice about Bush or how pleased others out there were that Hillary Dems weren’t being evil to the man as he left office.

They may be on the way to rationality but the praise of HIllary Clinton is ridiculous.

This dame just blamed America for the terrorists in Pakistan.

Good find. However, liberals in general and gay men in specific are mentally ill, so I’m not thinking this line of thinking is going to catch on among the left, LOL!

Hillbuzz since before Nov 2008 have always been anti-Obama right after Hitlery got beat in the primary. Once in awhile, a blind squirrel finds it’s nuts. Hillbuzz is still a libtard site but shows more brain cells and sincerity than the iDUots and Daily Kooks.

.....just like they did, without fanfare or media, after the 9/11 attack.

I don’t trust this crowd either, but when they’re right they’re right. I’ll give them credit. They say things here none of our elected Republican reps. or senators have the guts to say so I give these guys props. I think the horrible attack at Fort Hood had one positive outcome—it woke up some to just how feckless and incompetent Oboober is, esp. in a moment of national sorrow. As the nation mourned, Obama went to Capitol Hill to twist arms to vote for Soviet healthcare. A real CiC would have been down to Fort Hood by the next day, not almost a week later. Funny how when it took Bush 4 days to get to NOLA after Katrina that was the crime of the century according to the Dems and the media (same thing), despite his not going being due to the logistical nightmare it would have created with the city being flooded and the general lack of security in the area not simply because he wanted to hang around D.C. to peddle his agenda.

Even the crazies can tell when “one of these is not like the others” and Obama is sticking out like a severed thumb.

They’re right about W and Laura—they understood and they care. They’re right about Cheney too. WHY AM I AGREEING WITH GODZILLARY SUPPORTERS? Obama makes funny things happen, even when he’s away from Larry Sinclair.

“...but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.”

A dubious distinction indeed.

Meh, they didn’t support President Bush when it counted and they support Hillary. Big whoop.

It's referring to a different article which apparently gave Bush some props or went after Obama. I didn't read it. If you click the link to the article and scroll down you can click the hyperlink to the Jan. 20th piece they're referring to.

Maybe this is a group of homosexuals who are familiar with Islam’s “tolerance” of homosexuals and homosexuality.

Unlike most liberals who embrace Islam as a “religion of peace” maybe these folks have seen the visual evidence of what happens when you are Muslim and come out of the closet in the wrong country.

Maybe they realize that any allowance for sharia law in the USA could result in them hanging from the end of a rope.

Don’t understand how the gays and lib-labs fail to realize that along with the Jews and Christians, they will be among the most persecuted people if Islam is ever allowed to take hold in this nation.

Hillbuzz is real. There’s a kind of ADHD quality to the site (style and number of posts), but they’re Obambi opponents and have been so since the primaries. A conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged, and they’re just on their way.

They didn’t have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

They DID have to do it. In their eyes, it WAS their responsibility. They love and appreciate this country and the warriors who keep it safe, just Like GHWB and Barb do, just like Ronald Reagan did.

The troops are not props for photo ops like weak sister Liberals.

And we love them back.

They’re called PUMAS and yes they are out there (still invariably on the left on some/most issues), but they realize what a danger Hussein is to the nation, and will be valuable allies (however many few) there are.

For the record I don’t support homosexual special rights, but if anyone is gay and they agree with me on the rest of the issues and DON’T make there sexuality the main focus of their politics, then I can ally with them, political (while privately praying for a God to Change their hearts)!~

They may have realized that the next bloodsoaked outbreak of Jihadism could well occur in a place like “Boystown”. Few things bring reality into focues like having the knife at your neck.

But I shouldn’t conditionalize. This blog post deserved kudos regardless of motives.
