Skip to comments.Barbara Bush to Palin: Stay in Alaska
Posted on 11/20/2010 8:38:20 AM PST by kristinn
Sarah Palin may not have the biggest fan in former first lady Barbara Bush.
"I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful," Barbara Bush said. "And she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there."
Bush, along with her husband, former President George H.W. Bush, spoke to CNN's Larry King in an interview set to air Monday.

Agreed and thats what I like about her. She isn’t of that class and makes them nervous. Good.
>>The Ruling Class has spoken.<<
WOW! I would say!
Just another reason why I have no interest in George’s book.
Indeed... isn’t Jeb making noises about running?
Barbara Bush is more liberal than her husband.
Wow, the whole dang establishment needs to be rooted up, hauled off and replaced with real conservatives.
Barbara Bush - Don’t you have some books to catalog, starting with Palin’s?
First time I layed eyes on Baarbara Bush I thought she was George Bush I’s mother rotflmao
Is Larry King still alive? And Barbara Bush, too?
Ms. Bush has welcomed a rapist ex President into her life as an adopted son.
They hate Sarah Palin, as all women of their ilk do.
what is it with the ruling class? The Bush family..all of them owe there political existance to Reagan...no one else.
They bad mouth Palin, tell us to get over Reagan and so on...
Little Jebbey said they were afraid to go out during the amnesty/open borders fiasco. And does lil Jebby’s wife have a mexican passport??????
“Barbara Bush is more liberal than her husband”
I find that very hard to believe, he is very socialist.
I like Barbra but the whold Bush family are RINO’S. Period
What a snob. By not saying much you know where she stands too.
Who knew that Barbara Bush posts on FR?
Stay out da Bushes. Their pro-illegals amnesty goals cloud rational thought.
Not surprising that this would be the response to Gov. Palin. Also, take note of whom they agreed to have interview them.
The Bushes seem to be very happy in Texas. Let’s hope they stay there.

I’m so sorry to hear that Barbara Bush isn’t still in silent retirement.
“what is it with the ruling class? The Bush family..all of them owe there political existance to Reagan...no one else.”
AMEN! The Peanut Farmer would’ve beaten Poppy in ‘80.
Two lessons here:
1. The Bushs are and always have been part of the ruling elite which includes a lot of Republicans, and while not socialists like O and crew, they are still big, benevolent government types, and,
2. because they are “nice guys”, or people we like and feel a connection to, does not mean we should vote for them or that they would make good representatives.
I’d say Barb has been pretty traumatized by the beating Dubya took in elite opinion. Jumping on Palin is an easy way for her to regain cred with them.
I would prefer to have Sarah Palin as my president than another country-club RINO. She does not crave or pursue power for power’s sake but humbly bends her knee and bows her head to God Almighty. For THIS and loving America unashamedly, she has been deemed by the so-called political elites to be unelectable and targeted for destruction. Should she run for and win the presidency in 2012, I could truly die a happy woman for I would know my country was in truly competent hands. (Unlike the cadre of Marxists in the White Hut now.)
Amen to that. In the meantime, Senior Bush might be pleased to know that his hispanic omigos might get a stealth bill to vote out Palin:

Whatever happened to the idea the first ladies are suppose to be “cordial and gracious”? Me-thinks Barbara wants to dis anyone who isn’t JEB. Please, Bush family, go away. Your time is up. Your reign is over. Just a thought.
That family has done a heck of a lot of damage to this country.
Whoops, nevermind. Got Laura and Barbara confused.
Don’t try to fight it Barbara hehehehe...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrGw_cOgwa8
Barbara Bush took a cheap shot at Sarah Palin and she smiled like she had made a great sarcastic statement.
She was much better thought of when she was keeping her mouth shut.
One of the best decisions the Bush’s ever made was to leave poffice and keep quiet. It’s a good move they should stick to.
The globalists are scared of Sarah. BB/GHWB doing Larry King ...that will draw a room full of viewers.
Stick it where the sun don’t shine, Babs, pro-abort fraud.
The word you're looking for is Progressives. They are American Liberals.
I’m sure Karl Rove is in the mix too.
Pretty sure Barbara Bush will be asked about this and she will laugh and berate the left wing media for making such a ridiculous statement up.
I’m not one to attribute the views of George H W Bush to George W. Bush or the views of Barbara Bush to either of them. However, I would note, and I’ve said this many times, George W. Bush was not a conservative. He was at best a moderate, and more realistically, a left-leaning moderate. When you try to figure out where exactly Bush and Obama’s policies differ, you run into difficulty. Bush did not have a trillion dollar failed stimulus. Bush did not nationalize the health care system. Bush banned federal subsidies of embryonic stem cell research on new lines of embryos. But except for those three policies, there really isn’t much difference.
No. In fact he declared that he wont run in 2012.
Since when did Larry King care about Republican-has-beens? They have been used as a tool to destroy future Republican leaders, in this case Sarah Palin. They should watch their mouth carefully.
Well - it’s on CNN so it must be true................
“Houston, we have a problem!”.
Meeeow! Nice little jab there babs, first praise her then stab her in the back. Well I guess that is the RINO ruling class way. And we are all sick of it. All you do with your vile petulant remarks is make us support Sarah even more. If you had all just kept your traps shut and left Sarah alone she would still be governor of Alaska and back into obscurity.
