      Why would I waste my beautiful mind thinking about Barbara Bush.
      SM: Why did we allow this post? To show just how misguided and evil the LEFT really is. Barbara Bush never hurt anyone, she is the wife of a former President. She never got involved in politics.

      However, she falls ill, needs some prayers to get better and the psycho left make derogatory comments. You people are really a sad lot.

      However, as I say … every one in life serves a purpose … some are just put on earth to be a bad example.

      Red, same posts are made by republican supporters.

      for me a sign that there is something very wrong.

      for me a sign that there is something very wrong with the US.

      (the way the left and the right is treating each other)-

      Scared Monkey, (and unfortunately DOLF) your ignorance is showing.

      Here’s Babs on the eve of the Iraq war, you know the one wherein her son lied and it’s led to 4000 plus American deaths:

      “Why should we hear about body bags, and deaths, and how many, what day it’s gonna happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Or, I mean, it’s, it’s not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?
      • March 18, 2003, on ABC/Good Morning

      Babs just couldn’t be bothered with hearing about the human toll that a war instituted by her son was going to bring.

      So if I’m evil, I guess I’m right up there with Babs.

      And here’s your beloved Babs, who never hurt anyone, on the fate of displaced Hurricane Katrina victims, you know the people who had to live in the Astrodome for weeks after having almost died in New Orleans:

      “And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this — this [she chuckles slightly] is working very well for them.”

      And for those who still suffer the delusion that wonderful Babs never hurt anyone, then you have never read a biography that describes her cold, distant manner (she played tennis within 24 hours of her daughter’s funeral ) in which she raised all her children, thus inflicting on the world at least two alleged leaders whose callousness and callow beings could not give a crap about the lives and deaths of ordinary citizens.

      I’ll care about Babs getting her chest cracked open when she and her brain disabled sons apologize for ruining the country and the State of Florida. And it has nothing to do with right and left politics, it has everything to do with recognizing an evil person and not pretending otherwise.

      why is my ignorance showing?

      I just make an observation.

      The US has got 2 sides, both hate each other

      (the ppl in the middle get shafted by both groups)

      Go away! I’m sick of you posting about how bad things are in the U.S.A. when you do not live here and have no idea what you are talking about. Do you think your country is perfect? Do us all a favor and STFU.

    9. Michelle on March 5th, 2009 9:51 am

      #6 You really need to do some soul searching.

    10. donna on March 5th, 2009 10:06 am

      God Bless you Barbara.
      I have always loved you and George.
      You and George have always been true people.
      Get well soon!

      Ignorance because you did not recognize the “beautiful mind” quote in relation to Barbara Bush which most on the left do because it was just so egregious on her part.
      And since you added the last quote, there is not and never has been just two sides to America. My dad and I are both Democrats and we fight like crazy over proposals that differing Democrats put out. The same could be said of the right with Repubs ranging from Ron Paul (No immperialism no spending ) to Thad Cochran (Give me that good ol American Empire with a side of pork barrel spending please.) It is an absolute myth that there is a left and a right, a red and blue to this country. I think the electoral map shows a trend toward purple actually, with voters picking and choosing what they prefer from each side. I met more than a few die hard Repubs this past time who early on committed to vote for Barack because of where George Bush led their party and the country.
      And the alleged two sides do not hate each other or have you missed the Orrin Hatch/Ted Kennedy love fests and the McCain/Feingold engagements? (or the Barack/Tom Coburn infatuation if you will)
      My comment on Babs had nothing to do with left/ right, red /blue politics. It was a recognition that Babs is not a person, because of her past display of indifference and ill will towards others, worthy of care or concern by anyone except maybe those who have to cause they’re related to her.

    12. SenecaFalls on March 5th, 2009 11:18 am

      I am quite comfortable knowing where my soul is and knowing Babs has none. Jesus himself gave us lessons on who would get into the kingdom of heaven and who would not and I can assure you Babs of Ohio/New Haven/Kennebunkport/Dallas with her wealth and cruelty will not.

    13. Augie on March 5th, 2009 12:43 pm

      Ahh Babs and her pop beads will be just fine because of two things: Evil lives forever

      and…. WE THE PEOPLE pay for the finest Doctors to be found for her and her ilk to live another day to mock, deride, rape and pillage WE THE PEOPLE who paid for the finest doctors to be found for Babs and her pop beads.

      We kept Reagan from wandering the streets like his fellow mentally patients he filled our streets with to be the ubiquitous victims and homeless. He was coddled at home with the finest 24/7 care our money could find.

      Isn’t life grand?

    14. Michelle on March 5th, 2009 12:48 pm

      #12 We are not to judge. You do not know about her soul, that is between her & GOD. Leave the woman alone, she is not evil.

    15. Maggie on March 5th, 2009 1:54 pm

      Never was a big fan of Barbara bush’s until I read her first book.. Great sense of humor..She lost a daughter, Robin, to leukemia when she was a child. Had a lot of funny stories in it. George Bush has led a great life.. They got their wealth the old fashioned way, they worked for it. They do much for charity too.. George still travels with Clinton to raise money for causes..They did one for Galveston , when it was hit by a hurricane last year.

      Get well soon Barbara!

    16. Michelle on March 5th, 2009 3:01 pm

      This is a blog regarding get well wishes for Barbara Bush not for trolls like Augie & Seneca Falls to come here and start bashing the woman about something she said in an interview which was taken out of context and posted here to try and make yourself look better for hating the woman. She is not evil but you people that twist words to fit your agenda are the ones that are evil. Typical liberals will find any reason to hate on the Bush family. They are good people so leave them alone.

    17. Maggie on March 5th, 2009 4:30 pm

      Just read a few ago that Robin Williams is cancelling his tour…to go in for surgery..same thing aorta valve replacement..

    18. Dolf on March 6th, 2009 1:22 am


      good to hear.

      might want to tell the media that, they just love the red-blue stuff.

      Michelle, sorry for reality
      no Holland is no where near perfect

    19. Scared Monkeys on March 6th, 2009 6:04 am

      OH Senaca you are just so brilliant, let us all just sit here in awe of you. Talking about showing your ignorance.

      Please do not even attempt to discuss what Jesus taught … seems to me you are a bit on the judging side. Typical.

      I am just so impressed by people who think they know it all and have hatred in their hearts.

    20. Scared Monkeys on March 6th, 2009 6:08 am

      BTW folks, under an Obama nationalized health care system Barbara Bush may never have been provided heart surgery.

      Now you can say, if you are a hater, that good. However, what if it was your grandmother?

      He stated that unnecessary procedures would be done away with to save costs. We have seen this same BS before when HMO’s first came on the scene and insurance company execs, not drs, were making decisions as to who go what health care. We all know how well that went.

      Now Obama will be making the decision whether your 97 year old grandmother should have heart surgery. I know that instills confidence in me.

    21. Scared Monkeys on March 6th, 2009 7:56 am

      We make a simple get well post to a gracious lady and some how that irks the LEFT.

      What a sad commentary from the Hate side of the Left.

      When Ted Kennedy became sick, we wished his well. We did the same in the past with Clinton. We would do the same if Obama became ill.

      Just because I disagree with this people does not mean I wish them harm or ill. I just wish they would go away. However, the LEFT cannot seem to do that. Talk about a serious character flaw. Don’t worry, you will have more than enough time to explain it at the Pearly Gates.

      Get well Barbara.

      to the left, to the left, seneca, your shit is in a box to the left . and a very small box.

    23. super dave on March 6th, 2009 9:03 am

      augie file ? thought he was dead !

    24. bob on March 6th, 2009 10:49 am

      Barbara Pierce Bush is of the Eastern Liberal Establishment. She is a decendent of President Franklin Pierce. She is an Anglophile and if anyone thinks she has one iota of loyalty to the US, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them. PS–I am a conservative.

    25. wolf on August 20th, 2009 2:28 pm

      I wonder what kind of health insurance Barbara Bush has and how much she pays for it. Do you think she might get free health care through a government program that all of congress has? I wonder what her co pay is.
