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.

Yep, he's making the rounds. But I always find myself enjoying each of his appearances. Like him or not, he is a man of principals and character. A rare quality these days.

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?

Bush is speaking soon at 9PM (right now) at the Reagan Library. One can probably go to their site and watch it.

Please, dear G*d, don’t let him say anything else that defends TARP, amnesty, or socialized medicine.

How can you tell if your librarian is a liberal?

The person is a liberal if they put his book in the fiction section.

Yes, indeed, particularly if “pushing the book” was part of the contract for the book.

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.

Ronald Reagan was the last true Conservative Republican president in my estimate, in a lot of ways.

I hope those days return; 2010 gave me hope we can do it again, some 30 years later.

HUGH thank you Bumpity Bump!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm sure you won't be surprised, altura, by those who somehow blame President Bush for what his mother says, even though it clearly does not reflect his own views.

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.

Hey, streetpreacher..........the "lot of pictures" jab is a direct leftist critique of President Bush.

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.

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.

To: streetpreacher
Yes. I understood the context. And I understand that neither Bush 41 nor his wife were or are particularly conservative. I also believe that their son is.

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!
