    President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush will attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration this month. In a statement Tuesday, the former president’s office said the Bushes are “pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy — and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence.” The decision makes Bush the second living president to attend Trump's inauguration ceremonies. President Jimmy Carter announced his decision to attend last year. President George H.W. Bush, 92, is not expected to attend. His spokesman cited his advanced age in a statement to Politico...

    When Donald Trump destroyed and derided Bush Family heir-apparent, Jeb “Low Energy” Bush, in the GOP primaries in 2016, eyes turned toward the dynastic Republican family in Texas. Would the Bushes cross party lines to back Hillary Clinton or stick with the Republican standard-bearer? In September, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend revealed that George H. W. Bush said he would vote for Clinton, which the former president’s spokesperson later confirmed. His son, President George W. Bush, noticeably refused to endorse Trump, but his nephew George P. Bush, the Texas Land Commissioner, last week let it slip that his uncle may vote for...

    Dems giddy over reported Laura Bush endorsement for Hillary Clinton April 11, 2016 | Carmine Sabia | Print Article Democrats giddy about Laura Bush‘s recent comments on the presidential election are getting a dose of reality. Last week, the former first lady was speaking at the Women In The World summit in New York when she made a statement that caused some to jump to the conclusion that Mrs. Bush is “ready for her.” “I want our next president — whoever he or she might be — to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will...

    ABC 13 ^ | 17 MARCH 2016 | ARLETTE SAENZ
    Former First Lady Laura Bush won't say whether she would vote for Donald Trump if he's the Republican nominee. "I'm not going to answer," Bush said in an interview with USA Today. "Don't ask that." Bush campaigned alongside her husband George W. Bush on behalf of her brother-in-law, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush earlier this year. The Bush couple reportedly is not planning to endorse again in the Republican primary this year. "We don't have any religious test in the United States. And that's what we need to remember. We need to remember what our own values are," she said.

    Laura Bush is hitting the fundraising circuit to help reinvigorate her brother-in-law’s presidential campaign.

On Oct. 6, Laura Bush will host a group of donors in suburban Orlando. The next day, she’ll jointly host a second event in Palm Beach with Columba Bush, Jeb's wife. The former two-term Republican governor has tried not to tie himself too closely to his brother former President George W. Bush’s administration. But in recent days, Bush has...

    Yesterday, the media and leftists kept whining about there being zero Republicans at Selma for the anniversary march. As is typical for the media and leftist progressives, there were actually 23 Republicans in attendance yesterday. Even George W. Bush, the devil to the media and the left was at the march, though you wouldn’t know it if you saw today’s New York Times with George Bush and Laura Bush cropped out of their photo.

    The New York Times commemorated the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma, Alabama by running a frontpage photo that is raising some questions.The paper of record, the anointed gold standard of journalistic integrity, appears to be playing games with its audience by conveniently cropping out a long-time political foe of the newspaper: President George W. Bush.Here is a wider angle photo of the marchers in Selma, Alabama, as reported by Newsbusters. Look below.

    The Manhattan mistress of married “60 Minutes’’ newsman Steve Kroft sent him sexy lingerie photos during their affair, but he insisted she dress low-key — like “Laura Bush” — with him in public to keep things hush-hush, according to newly revealed texts. A source close to Kroft’s lover told The Post that the TV hotshot was “really paranoid about right-wing zealots” finding out about their affair and using the tawdry details to try to destroy his career and CBS.

    Michelle Obama should not receive a salary as First Lady according to Laura Bush, who could definitely be said to be an expert on the subject. But these comments happen to stray into the political mine field of income inequality and the gender pay gap. In a related report by The Inquisitr, Michelle Obama’s school lunch portions have been criticized heavily by students who are actually forced to eat her school cafeteria plans. In recent times, Barack and Michelle Obama have spoken about their plans for ending income inequality in America. The White House also came under fire when it...

    Bizpacreview ^ | February 3, 2014
    For some, Animal Planet’s annual “Puppy Bowl” is more sacred than the Super Bowl. CNN summed it up in a nutshell: . . . the sublime result of pairing a bunch of wiggly puppies — 66, in fact — with squeaky toys and a mini-stadium set. Add a “rufferee” and a kitty-filled halftime, and every floppy tackle or slobbered-on football inspires an unintelligible burst of baby talk and giggles. That’s the power of puppies! Maybe it’s not for everyone, but those who love it want to keep politics out, and who can blame them? This year, Michelle Obama had to...
