Laura Bush: George Now Has A ‘Man Cave’

Laura Bush: George Now Has A ‘Man Cave’

He doesn’t have a White House staff making the coffee anymore, but former President George W. Bush now has a man cave.

That was among the revelations made by former First Lady Laura Bush on “Fox News Sunday,” where she appeared to plug her new book “Spoken from the Heart.”

The Bushes’ new home in suburban Dallas boasts a satellite dish. “We have the huge-screen TV. That was one of the first things we bought and put upstairs in George’s man cave, that we call it, the one big room that’s upstairs, and where his desk is and his computer. And that’s where he likes to watch the Texas Rangers every night,” Laura Bush said.

On the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Bush recalled the military patrol planes flying over the capital keeping watch for possible additional attack planes. “The very first night of September 11th, they wanted us to sleep down in the bunker, and George just said, ‘No, I’ve got to sleep in my own bed. I mean, we’ve got to get some rest.’ And — but he said, ‘Come get us if you think you need to.’

Pretty interesting stuff.

Most sports fans now a days either have a man cave or has a friend who has one. At least by my experience anyways.

Sorry for your loss.

Some of my fondest memories were walking through the orange groves in the late '50's when my dad was at the Cape!!

Since she had been a teacher, I was not really surprised that Laura was more liberal than GW, but, when I compare her to the FLOTUS that preceded and followed her, she comes out WAY on top. She is a true Southern lady who knew how to keep her opinions to herself while her husband was POTUS. At least, with the weight of the world on his shoulders (somehow, the present occupant of the White House does not appear to be so burdened), W did not have to worry about anything Laura would do or say!

Keeping America safe for eight years is worth a lot... Keeping America safe for eight years meant a lot...

Let's not forget this that he did for our country. He absolutely surprised Osama Bin Laden and his bloody fanatics who were not expecting the kind of retaliation Bush gave them. They thought they were going to get the kind of amoral liberal double-minded leaderless response they got for eight years under Clinton. (Maybe they're still trying to figure out Obama - they don't get that all liberals are pretty much the same - leaderless, weak, and double minded.)

Bush proved what has been said about these homicidal maniac Islamists - they rattle the sword and will use it given the chance, but a show of deadly force and a determined resolve will soon send them fleeing for fear back into their caves.

For all the things Bush screwed up, God bless him for meeting these nut cases with a response that prevented any follow-up attacks until now. Nevertheless, the sleeper cells and porous borders aren’t helping.

My man cave is my computer workshop, which also contains a rotating fishing rod rack in the corner, my tackle box, and a closet with shelves, loaded with a half dozen tool boxes and about every hand and power tool known to man (I'm underprivileged - I don't have a garage, just a carport, so portability is a prime consideration). I do have a pool table in storage, though.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I toured the William Jennings Bryan home in Lincoln, and a historian told us how Bryan feared for his life and would sleep in a different room every night. This was at the turn of the century, I wonder why he was so afraid, even hiding in his own home in the middle of nowhere, Lincoln, Ne? He really was the cowardly lion portrayed in “The Wizard of Oz”.

I miss him too, badly. It must have been hell for him to endure the constant attack of those left wing bastards. I wish he was back instead of the loser we have now. I never felt the entire world was in peril with him as our president. I do now because of the insanity of the current president. He is going to leave Israel with no choice but to strike first and alone.

To show how bad the media is about facts - the Bush home is in suburan Dallas if being 4 miles from downtown with a Dallas zip code is a suburb. Gee you would think they would have some real web researchers.
