I thought some of you might be interested
He was keeping his head low until he had a book to push.
Thanks. Even though I don’t watch TV, it’s nice to know he’s on and the public has a chance to see past the BS they have been fed for years.
Maybe he was busy actually writing the book, when he was ‘keeping his head low’.
Now that it’s available, it wouldn’t make any sense to not ‘push it’. Wouldn’t you do the same?
Please, dear G*d, don’t let him say anything else that defends TARP, amnesty, or socialized medicine.
The person is a liberal if they put his book in the fiction section.
God Bless Former President Bush. It takes a big pair of cajones to go on shows that ridiculed you, lied about you, and then called it ‘comedy’...wouldn’tya say?
Thanks for the heads up!
Thank you for the reminder.
Yes, indeed, particularly if “pushing the book” was part of the contract for the book.
GOOD that you spotted this posting!
You think W will be on David Letterman’s show anytime soon?
I increasingly think the critics of TARP should not be characterized as fiscally conservative.
It is one of the view government programs in history to:
1. Come to an end
2. Be paid back— quickly too
3. Be paid back with interest
If other government programs even met one of these awesome fiscally conservative criteria, it would be impressive. The fact that it does this while enacting one of the largest government expenditures in history is equally staggering.
I’m looking for a reason to blame Bush for something. Any ideas?
view = few
It sold out for weeks. I wouldnt mind driving from Hollywood to the Reagan Lib but only if I had a ticket.
He already did defend that crap to Rush, who did not challenge him.
Leno said after all the fun we've had at his expense, he's a stand-up guy for coming.
He will be off TV screens until his library opens after Thanksgiving...his media tour is about finished.
W is hysterical - laughing at himself as well!
I hope those days return; 2010 gave me hope we can do it again, some 30 years later.
I remember when Bush and Lindsey “I’m going to tell the bigots to shut up” Grahamnesty tried to legalize millions upon millions of new Democratic voters. Thank God we adverted that disaster.
Those who CHOOSE not to see what TARP was about, and any benefit from it, are certainly not about to start now. They can call themselves any thing they want, but I have my own word for them.
Why would President Bush try to defend Reagan’s amnesty?
Really? You must have been very interested since you took the time to click on the link, scroll down to read the comments, actually took the time to hit "post reply" doing a cut and paste of another's comment and responding by typing words...ending the exercise by hitting "post"
Seems like a lot of time and work for someone not interested in the subject.
I heard that THE President was very, very funny on Leno.
GOOD to see this man of character back in the public eye where he can set the record straight (at least with those who care what that record is, eh?)
I’m not interested enough to watch Leno. Sorry if I was ambiguous.
It is awesome seeing and hearing OUR President again. The memories...the nostalgia...the sanity...American exceptionalism...the flight suit pics...sigh...
Love your combination of memories, Justa! :)
But seriously......anyone who doesn't miss having a President who loves this country dearly, and who believes that America is the most exceptional country in the world, is just plain nuts!
(Maybe they don't love America like we do, eh?)
I was until his “momma” decided to insert herself into the 2012 Republican primaries. He can sell his “memoirs” somewhere else. It probably has a lot of pictures.
Oh, come on. It’s ridiculous to hold Dubya accountable for his mother’s off the cuff and off the wall remark.
He’s been nothing but gracious all his life and he said nothing of the kind beyond wishing that his brother could run.
My daughter could tell you not to blame her for what I say.
The ‘a lot of pictures’ remark tells me you never liked Bush and are probably a liberal troll.
So now the “test for conservatism” is whether or not one “liked Bush”?
I could give a **** about whether or not you think I’m a “liberal troll”... lol.. those words don’t any hold any power anymore on FR, they’re thrown around so much.
Some people like to stretch a long way to make Bush a villain......even if it's something as trivial as what his (now elderly) mother says.
I would guess that none of us have views in lockstep with our Moms (even if they're as cool as Barbara Bush)..........and if we do, it's kinda sad.
I know better, but when you use a 'Bush-is-dumb' bashing technique it's only logical to think you're not conservative. Conservatives know the man is not stupid. YOU know that President Bush is not stupid.
Hey, I’m venting right now... so sue me. Yeah, the son needs to tell mom to put a pipe in it...
I do KNOW he’s not stupid, but it still pisses me off. The Bush women are so freakin’ liberal...
And even if they are "freakin' liberal" this affects you how??
You do realize the context of my comment was in regards to Barb attacking Palin don’t you? I think it affects conservatives when the former first lady gives ammunition to Palin’s critics on the left and sends the signal that she is putting her weight behind an establishment type like Romney.
And I’m sorry, no matter what you think of the son, the parents were rather petty in how they treated the Reagans. They were never invited to the White House until after Bush lost the election to Clinton. They were not Reagan conservatives. In fact, Bush 41 wasn’t a conservative at all. It was one of Reagan’s biggest mistakes in making him his V.P. and they apparently are the gift that keeps on giving to conservatives. It’s a pretty low blow that “Bar” took at Sarah when her own son wasn’t considered “smart enough” to be President by the liberal elite.
It’s funny because I am on record on FR as not being a Palin cheerleader; I actually liked Christie. But the more I see the media and the establishment of both parties attack her, the more I realize they see her as a threat (much like Daddy Bush when he saw Reagan as an “extremist” and called Reaganomics “voodoo economics”)... so I hope she runs and I can’t wait to vote for her in the primary.
That being said, I just don't see how anger at Barbara Bush for dissing Sarah Palin does us much good. I don't think she'll have one iota of influence in the 2012 election, and if we didn't call it to everyone's attention, you've gotta figure that since Larry King gets absolutely no audience, it would have had minimal negative effect at worst.
And if you're worrying about how the left will treat Sarah should she decide to run for President, do you think it can get any worse? They've already butchered her, and will certainly continue to do so.
I just can't get worked up about Barbara Bush. Sorry.
It was a good show...perhaps the *only* mass media event that didn’t have the Left inserting anti-Bush jabs to “balance” the Bush positives in any given story.
W came across as humble, honest, and patriotic. Funny, too! Bush’s story about what he said to the 50 year old woman while he was still back in his drinking days had Leno rolling on the floor laughing!
Consider the source?
BTW, when did conservatives start liking Bush, much less liberal trolls?
Wouldn’t watch and won’t read the memoirs either. No more Bushes.
Won’t be watching. GWB has split his britches with me, long ago. Of course, I don’t watch Leno anyway.
