White House Regains Leadership Today For A Brief Moment
Myself | 05/31/2012 | Myself

Posted on 05/31/2012 10:55:20 AM PDT by cquiggy

My eyes are tearing up as I long for the good old days when George W Bush was in The White House. For a brief moment leadership, Christian values, and character returned to The White House today. Along with a true first lady. Unfortunately it was only for the official unveiling of George W and the true first lady Laura's portrait.

Loved W’s portrait. From what I could see, I wish Laura’s had her smiling. She is beautiful either way, but she can light up a room when she smiles!

I am biting my tongue, trying really hard not to make comparisons and contrasts which would be interpreted as political.
So I'll just ask a neutral question : Does anyone know if it is possible to get suitable for framing copies of that presidential portrait?
Or all presidential portraits, for that matter. I have never before felt the need to have any at home, but I do this time.
With all his imperfections, my President.

I noted that Obama referred, not to “President Bush”, but to “George”. Still keepin’ it classy, I see...

What a great ceremony. The Bush humor is wonderful and reflective of just one side of him - I loved the line “What would George do?”

There were several decisions made during George’s tenure that I didn’t agree with but their presence today reminded me of things that I miss from when they were in the White House. Life was not about them and there was a sense of respect, dignity, appropriateness and orderliness. I do believe that George W and Laura truly recognized, cared about, understood and appreciated Americans first. Such a gracious couple.

Get a grip. GWB’s last two years in office are why we have obama in the first place.

This isn’t what they were wearing in the White House today, Laura had on a blue dress...

At least at the Press conference.

So when was this photo?

That wasn’t the same Art rendering either. Thouse must have been at another time.

So far all the photos have a reflection so we can’t see the portrait. That’s intentional, and petty.

Those aren't the official portraits, either.

Here are some photos (none by Reuters, yet) from today's event.

Hmmm...don't know. I searched the web for George and Laura portrait unveiling and this popped up. I figured it must be it. Guess not.

Drats.

Whatever President Bush’s faults, they were few & minor compared to the nazi in the WH. Anyone notice how classy Laura looked, sure miss both of them in OUR White House!

Pookie18 has, for the gazillionth time, made me snarf a fluid that I was drinking out of my nose and all over my monitor.
