RE :”In another video, the elder Bush says she is “a great respecter” of Michelle Obama, and resents her critics’ focus on combating obesity who think “government shouldn’t tell you what to eat.”
“Well, somebody’s got to tell these people what to eat,” she says”

She's pro-abortion pro-gay marriage too,

Maybe she's trying to knife Christie in the back to help Jeb.

Michelle Obama is just Barbara Bush 3.0, after Laura was 2.0. I know people would give me trouble, but I don;t respect either of these ladies any more than Mrs. Obama. There is no reason to.

Barbara Bush has jumped the shark. She is not the woman I used to respect and admire. Her words are cruel and insulting. Shame, shame on your Barbara!

The MSM proclaims the wookie as a fashion icon. Not exactly any scrutiny or critique there.

The Bush’s just need to go away. Please.

I don’t like Barbara Bush at all, and I’ve lost a lot of respect for Laura Bush over the last six years.

Barbara Bush is the manliest First Lady we’ve ever had.

I don't have a problem with what Laura said. The First Male will undergo scrutiny if we ever get one.

But Barbara Bush's comment? That's another story.

Please, Laura Bush is a classy woman. What has she done to you?

So who do you like as First Lady? Moochelle the Gorilla or Hillary the Cankles?
