    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...
  • Would an Endorsement by Laura Bush Seal the Deal for Hillary Clinton?

    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...

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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

One can debate the validity of these claims, but for now, let's give equal time to the other war on women. This one is manned not by men but by a dwindling number of women whose understanding of equality is so narrowly defined that only a certain kind of woman can be recognized as having achieved anything of value.
