We know absolutely no one in Bush family circles and have never met former President George W. Bush or his wife Laura.So begins a post by the bloggers at HillBuzz. They go on from there ...
If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.
Read the entire post ... and then read the hundreds of comments that have been left.
The world needed George W. Bush, his bullhorn, and his indominable spirit that day [on the 9/11 Trade Center pile of rubble] ... and we will forever be grateful to this man for that.
As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.
The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.
If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.
Sometimes it just takes time for the truth to come out....
