Skip to comments.Thank you former President George W. Bush (On Hillary Supporter Website)
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 dont 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.
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 youll answer to us.
We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all theyve done, and continue to do. They didnt have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.
The Obamas should have done that.
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 thats going on and speaking out when the current administration does anything too reckless and dangerous.
Cheneys 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 wed 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.
Were sure they will just stare at us and wonder why these gay Chicagoans are crying, but we dont 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. Were sorry we didnt appreciate you while you were in office, but we thank Heaven weve 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, heres what we said to President Bush on January 20th, at the beginning of The Golden Age of Hope and Change and Unicorns.
Its 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 werent being evil to the man as he left office.
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)!~
After her comments today that we are responsible for some of the terrorism coming from Pakistan I have NO use for her at all.
One of my favorite puma websites is www.pumapac.org.
That’s too funny.
Hard to believe it’s not from the Onion or Scrappleface.
She can do that,because she is not an American. She is a citizen of the World and her comments are always directed at US and not herself.
If she had the power, she would have all of us put to death, for the good of the masses and thee chillens.
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.
Pick me....pick me.........
Wow! I never would have thought but I appreciate their words immensely. God Bless Pres. Bush and his Laura.
I agree. I tear up every time I think about the stanch W took vs the one The One takes. I really wish that that the South could succeed one last time and take all of the producers with it.
Sounds like a convert who has had a rude awakening.
I’m praying Texas leaves the union so I can move there.
PUMAs. LOL! These are the people who boasted that they had upwards of 30 million Hillary voters who were going to vote for McCain.
They all voted for Zero. It was a scam.
I've been reading their commentary for over a year. Even though I don't agree with some of what they write about, I actually find this to be an interesting website. Glad to see their tribute to President and Mrs. Bush.
Well, I’ll be.
God BLESS these guys for having the common decency to see and understand the common decency in George and Laura Bush.
Don't get all wobbly. They didn't say they were going to support conservatives.
Everyone...be sure and read the comments. Zero is toast.
How many slaps do you reckon it would take?
It’s not satire.
During the election I read quite a few Hillary Clinton Boards. They hated Obama and all he stood for. They also hated that he stole the election.
Many of them voted against Obama.
Thanks Hillbuzz for having the courage !
