Generations celebrate as Jeb Bush's son gets married
Miami Herald ^ | May 29, 2010 | JOSE CASSOLA

Posted on 05/29/2010 9:11:19 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Three generations of Bushes descended on a Brickell area church Saturday for a wedding and Memorial Day weekend family reunion of the Republican Party's most enduring dynasty.

The two former presidents -- George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush -- were on hand, along with the former first ladies to watch as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's youngest son, John Ellis Bush Jr., 26, known as ``Jebby,'' married Coral Gables resident Sandra Algudady.

I wonder if she’s a lib on abortion and homosexuality like the other Bush women.

Let’s hope he goes into a nice career as an insurance agent, or a butcher, or a software designer ...

Nice day for a very accomplished family. “Algudady” - is that Persian origin? Arab?

I happen to be reading Laura Bush’s book right now-—a lot of it is interesting, especially her account of what went on in the White House during 9/11—stuff I had never heard before.

All in all, I think I’m enjoying reading it, as it does have a lot of history in it. They are obviously a very tight-knit family, and I wish the newly weds well.

Yes, the ceremony took place in a Catholic church, so I assume the bride and her family are Christians. Hmm, “Algudady” - I’m guessing Persian or South Asian origin. Anyway, congrats to the happy couple.

If Jeb had been elected POTUS instead of his inept brother, the Bush name would have been rescued from their father’s horrible one term debacle.

I had a college roommate back in the 1980s who was Lebanese, Catholic and very Conservative (passed away last year).

It said they were married at a Melkite-rite Catholic Church, so she´s probably Lebanese. She looks it.

She´s very pretty, and her new husband is very good looking. Kind of refreshing after the strange ¨First Family¨ we have had to put up with for the last year or so.

Pres. Bush did a remarkable job under very tough conditions. I believe history will be much kinder to him than the ungrateful citizens of his time.

Are you kidding me?!!!! W will go down as the Republican's version of Jimmy Carter. He, and others like him - such as McAmnesty, are the reason we have the most liberal president in U.S. history (aside from FDR) and, as a silver lining, the reason the Tea Party was reborn in the 21'st century.

Please.

He didn’t deserve the opprobrium heaped on him, that is certainly true.

But he expanded Medicare, furthered the role of the feds in education, bloated the budget deficit, tried to give amnesty to illegals and gerally refused to take on the left head-on.

On the positive side, he gave us two VERY good SC justices, which are very strong points in his favor. One demerit, though, for trying foist Harriett Myers on us.

He handled the War on Terror well also.

Bottom line: C+

Wich admittedly is better than the F- performace we’re getting from the present occupant. But great? Hardly.

Yeah, that Bush/Hasteret/Lott era was just fantastically conservative. The 9/11 intel debacle, no plan for post Baghdad, firing the poor smuck that said the occupation might be expensive, TARP, debts on future generations forever, mucking about in the Insane Clown Posse of Afghanistan, becoming debt junkies to China, open borders, hand in hand with Kennedy spending.

Next to the current president George Bush was the second coming of Ronald Reagan (that’s right, they called Reagan inept, too.) Obama has given new meaning to the word and brought “inept” to an art form...

I would not wear black either, but apparently it is “tres chic” to do so. I have been to several weddings where the bridesmaids wore black as well. If either of my gorgeous almost thirty-year-old twins ever gets married, I will certainly NOT be wearing black!

Most of the comments on the Miami Herald are terrible! Since they do not know either the bride or the groom personally, why not just wish them much joy and happiness just as the ones on this board will wish Chelsea Clinton later this summer?

I hope the new Lebanese member of the Bush family holds up to the ravages of time better than Helen Thomas! Although Helen was probably pretty odd looking to begin with...

I did read them. The worst ones came from the same person who obviously has such an ax to grind against GWB that he is blinded to how good we had it then compared to now. He blames Bush for the fact that Obama was elected when I think that most of the blame falls on McCain and the irresponsible MSM who refused to report the facts that were known at the time about Obama. In the newspaper’s comment section, the negative comments were the rule rather than the exception.

Thank you, deport. That cane looks like a medical device. Perhaps it was used right after his hip replacement surgery. The cane in the wedding photo is fancy. He’s aging. He needs to use a cane. God bless him.
