Thank you, gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago...

This is very cool, and gives me a shred of hope for the Dems. (Thanks to the Anchoress) Thank you former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush—HillBuzz:


...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

Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000...and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day...


...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 tell them at 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.

You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, and you'll answer to us.

We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all they've done, and continue to do. They didn't have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

The Obamas should have done that.

But didn't.


What most people don't know about, because our slime-animal "journalists" wouldn't report it, is that President Bush, when in office, spent huge amounts of time visiting our wounded, and visiting the families of those who had died. And never once milked this for any publicity whatsoever. (And here's something similar George and Laura did--with no publicity.)

I also remember with deep disgust certain Lefties criticizing the President for not attending military funerals. In fact by longstanding tradition the president does not attend individual military funerals during war-time. (To understand why, read here.)

I also remember with loathing the massive criticism of Bush for not going to New Orleans during Katrina. (Stupid, since he would just have interfered with rescue efforts, but that's how people think the president should act in this Oprah-fied time.) But Obama gets a free pass.
