Well bless her heart.
Stay out da Bushes.
Laura is into Bush I knew she was a bed wetting liberal Bless her heart
I have absolute contempt for George W. Bush. Now I’m not too crazy about his wife. In fact, I hope never to see another Bush in public office. They just can’t be trusted.
I’ve always had a suspicion that the former First Lady was a full-bird liberal. Makes me wonder how influential she was in some of her husgband’s particularly stupid and ill informed budget busting stupidities: No Child Left Behind, Prescription Drugs and all the kissy face stupidity with democRats, looking the other way on Sandy Burglar, Harriet Myers, immigration reform.
Laura doesn’t read much talks a lot.
Talk about disappointment.
I've seen that phrase used here in the South
Associated with Extraordinary Vituperative Diatribes
Another pod person
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
There’s been a lot of that lately ;-)
Laura - do your homework.
“I think she sounds like a very interesting and good nominee,” Bush said of Sonia Sotomayor, the federal appeals judge Obama picked.
Mrs. Bush said in an interview broadcast Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “as a woman, I’m proud that there might be another woman on the court. I wish her well.”
She’s becoming another Jimmy Carter.
Both sides paly identity politics.
Laura bush, what an idiot. If there were two men on the court would she think its great to nominate adolph hitler?
It seems Laura Bush is not too bothered how this administration has treated her husband George!
Gwb is the sole reason we have obama.
Throw ‘em all out. They are all trying to subvert this Republic.
re: Laura Bush tells “Fox News Sunday” that women should be represented “in all parts of American political and civic life.”
Fine. Is Kagan a real woman?
If her qualification, in Laura Bush’s eyes, is that Kagan is female...well, over half the nation is qualified to be a supreme court justice then...and the vast majority would be a better one. And if you limit it to just female lawyers...you’d still find plenty more qualified.
Laura Bush isn't a lawyer, nor has she ever written about or commented on pressing legal matters, especially as they relate to the Supreme Court, and the qualifications of candidates who aspire to that Court. Why couldn't she say, "I just don't know enough about the law to have an informed opinion?"
Laura supports gay marriage, abortion and Kagan. What a gal!
Betcha I know who she voted for President last time around.....
Fine. Is Kagan a real woman?
I'm sorry dear Laura but that is one of the most sexist statements I have heard. It's implying that all women think alike. Women do have much different views across the board that profoundly effect legislation. Not just any woman will do.
I believe you are right, a few years ago I would have not thought so,
Laura has really disappointed me, I am shocked and dismayed.
I was thinking the same thing.
I saw the original lead-in question and it set her up for the answer she gave. As I recall, she was asked what she thought of another woman being nominated; What was she supposed to say? Would you expect her to say ‘no, there are already enough women on the court’?
The original question was not specific to Kagan as the candidate...about whom she would not likely have any specific knowledge.
She was sandbagged.
The answer is being taken and used out of context to indicate support for this particular candidate.
What a dingbat. Still the classiest First Lady ever, however.
Laura Bush, in case you haven’t check, Elena Kagan is a
‘woman’ on an even shakier level of ambivalence than Ginsburg
and Sotomayor. Well, I guess she might qualify as the SECOND
“wise Jewish woman” on the Court, after Ginsburg.
The whole point is, we are sick and tired of “identity politics”. It should have no place in our political life.
Rulings from ANY of these three women on , what , “women’s
issues”???? will not change the general “dialogue” on “abortion rights,for example,more than any other Supreme Court , like one featuring ALL MEN, as long as a majority of them are “pro-choice”. What THESE three particular women WILL ensure, however, is a LOCK on this pro-choice,
anti-Life issue for the next 20 or so years.
I didn’t realize that she was quite that shallow and vapid.
There should be a clip available of the entire segment..
sandbagging? on Fox? Oh my.
So........under that placid facade was a rabid liberal. Thank you for showing your true colors All this time it was my belief you were a solid and serene individual supporting your husband but now the truth comes out.
When I see your photo now...the ugliness of your soul will be glaringly obvious.
Isn’t this why zero nominated her...she’s a woman so is immune from criticism for her lack of experience and her leftist positions? Who understands immunizing oneself better than the mulatto won?
Nope, people who failed to defend the relatively conservative Bush administration and let the left trash it with impunity and push the squishy moderates to the left for one election are the reason we got Obama. This includes people here who were constantly trashing Bush because they did not agree with every single thing he did. I suspect that includes you, so congratulations for giving us Obama.
As for Ms. Bush, I see she learned nothing from her mother-in-law saying equally stupid things in 1992.
I’ll give her credit—she had me fooled. And she was quiet and classy enough as a first-lady that I never imagined she was not worthy of the respect I was giving her.
This is exactly how we got into this mess. Superficial reasons for backing a nominee. We live in a lazy society. Don’t bother looking behind the lipstick on the pig or the bow on the tail.
Most Americans don’t have a clue as to the vicious radical agenda of the “dem” party
Set up...my ass. There is always a way out of a set up but it does require thinking. No...out of the mouth proceedeth the thoughts of the heart.
Never will I see Laura Bush the same. And Kaslin...bless your heart...stop posting the island of sanity because it was all a front. These people had as much regard for us and our country as Benedict Arnold.
yes, bless her heart
You go Laura, honey
As well as her two daughters.
Whatever. George Bush brought the disdain upon himself. I voted for him twice considering the alternatives but consider him to be and was a miserable failure as president.
LOL. I guess Jesse was right.
The key person who didn’t defend the Bush administration’s policies was W himself. He should have gone on the attack against the MSM immediately after the 2000 election was kept from being stolen by Gore and against Mayor Nagin, Governor Blanco and the MSM immediately after the Katrina flooding occurred. Quite frankly, the city and state of Louisiana had primary responsibility for NO’s legions of drones—not the federal government.
