    In a story titled THE AFTERLIFE, W. Bush recounts a recent day when the family feared their patriarch was about to pass away. "In November 2012, Dad checked into Houston Methodist hospital with a bad cough. When Laura and I went to visit a few days later, he was wearing a brace around his abdomen and obviously suffering serious pain. 'How you feeling, Dad?' I asked. He smiled. 'It's not the cough that carries you off; it's the coffin you go off in,' he quipped. In typical fashion, he lifted our spirits. His condition worsened in early December. The brutal,...

    A British study has identified the age at which men finally grow up -- and it's 43. That's 11 years later than their female counterparts, according to research commissioned by Nickelodeon UK. Men demonstrate their immaturity by being amused at farts and burps and playing video games, among other things, said women who participated in the survey. Not being able to cook simple meals, re-telling the same old stories and jokes when out with the boys, and owning a skateboard or BMX were also high on the list. Nickelodeon UK released the results in support of its launch of a...

    DALLAS — Shortly after Barack Obama was elected in 2008, a fellow reporter who’d covered President George W. Bush all eight years told me she’d had enough of the travel and stress and strain of the White House beat, that she was moving on. We reminisced about all the places we’d been, all the crazy days and wild nights, all the history we’d seen — first hand. Just before we said our goodbyes, I asked her if she’d miss covering President Obama. “Not at all. He’s an inch deep. Bush is a bottomless chasm, a deep, mysterious, emotional, profound man....

    As we enter April 2009 we are being bombarded by the media hyping up the first 100 days of President Obama I thought it would be nice to look back at the first 100 days of George W Bush Presidency. The White House Website for the Bush Administration had a photo essay for the first 100 days which I am sure will provoke fond memories. At the weekend I will post photos covering the first 2 weeks of April 2001 which once again I am sure will make us all feel nostalgic for the President we supported, respected and trusted...

    You have to hand it to President Bush — he is persistent. The Iraq war would be a good case of persistence, if not exactly a good war. But let’s not get distracted by that war this week as there are many more examples of Bush’s persistence which don’t carry the emotional baggage of Iraq. Without taking time to analyze each and every one of them, there were the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, the proposal to turn U.S. port security over to the Mideast city-state of Dubai, the dogged loyalty to Donald Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales,...

    A Most Solemn Call Christine Darg Dear friends, The following call is a very serious one and right on, I want to add again the call to pray for New York as this City represents by my understanding the main target of the next attack in the US, also as until recently it had the largest concentration of Jewish People in the world. They call it the "Big Apple" and the Jewish people are the "Apple of God's Eye". I really felt that was a lot of the reason that it became already the target on 9/11, and it will...

    Former President George Herbert Walker Bush spent a significant part of his speech in Los Angeles on Monday night talking of his love of family and his pride in the son who currently occupies the White House. Yet as the 82-year-old former chief executive recounted his years as president, the tale of how he governed stood in marked contrast to what critics, a few of whom were in the audience, say are the official actions of his beleaguered son. Enumerating the crises and triumphs of his term — among them the successful coalition-building before the 1991 Persian Gulf War, the...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Dec. 5) - Former President George H.W. Bush came here Monday to talk about leadership and opened his remarks with advice on working with rivals, being patient and building personal relationships. He then broke down in tears mentioning his son, Gov. Jeb Bush, as an example of leadership and the way he handled losing the 1994 governor's race to popular incumbent Democrat Lawton Chiles. He vaguely referred to dirty tricks in the campaign. "He didn't whine about it. He didn't complain," the former president said before choking up in front of lawmakers, Gov. Bush's top administrators and state...

    President Bush discussed his policies with conservative radio hosts last month at the White House, including, from left, Mike Gallagher, Neal Boortz, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Michael Medved. WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 — On an overcast Friday morning last month, White House aides ushered an influential group of conservative radio hosts into the Oval Office for a private audience with the president. For an hour and a half, Mr. Bush discussed his case for the war in Iraq, his immigration proposals and even the personality of his Scottish terrier Barney, who scratched on the door during the session until the...

    WASHINGTON, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress on Friday moved to block the Bush administration from building permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq or controlling the country's oil sector, as it approved $70 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The restrictions included in a record $447 billion military funding bill were a slap at the administration, and Republicans have stripped them out of legislation in the past. Democrats and many Republicans say the Iraqi insurgency has been fueled by perceptions the United States has ambitions for a permanent presence in the country. The administration has downplayed prospects...
  • Bush not a winner in 'home' state, but not alone

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush boldly, albeit light-heartedly, announced that he was "going to stay out of Connecticut" and its senatorial race, adding he may be "the only presidential candidate who never carried the state in which he was born." When Bush made the remark at a Monday press conference, he admitted it may not hold up to extensive research. And in this case, fact-checkers didn't have to dig too deeply. His father George H. W. Bush -- born June 12, 1924 in Milton, Massachusetts -- lost his "home" state by decisive margins in his two runs as a major...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 — President Bush seized today on Democratic calls for withdrawal from Iraq to make an election-year case that his political rivals did not properly understand the threats to the nation and would create a more dangerous world. It was the most direct attack Mr. Bush has made yet against the Democrats from a White House lectern this election year, and it effectively marked the beginning of a more outright political season for the president and his aides as they work to help Republicans maintain control of Congress this fall. The appearance marked an early, pre-Labor Day start...
