    You may not be a fan of the Bush family but Barbara Bush is a great woman. Thoughts to her family.

    A frugal woman. She once bought a pair of $29.00 shoes for G.H. Bushs Inauguration.

    She started the Barbara Bush foundation for family literacy.

    "The American Dream is about equal opportunity for everyone who works hard. If we don’t give everyone the ability to simply read and write, then we aren’t giving everyone an equal chance to succeed.” Mrs. Barbara Bush


    Here's a clip of her talking about Trump. She wasn't a fan.

    Sad news, but 92 years is a full life. Bush and his wife always handled themselves with class in the White House and outside.

    92 is a very long life. It's so old you don't feel 'bad' for her, obviously sucks for the family.

    To confirm....in your opinion Hillary and Melania are equal to the wife of a man who

    His secret police, the Securitate, was responsible for mass surveillance as well as severe repression and human rights abuses within the country, and he suppressed and controlled the media and press, implementing methods that were among the harshest, most restrictive and brutal in the world......

    And

    he perceived the demonstrations as a political threat and ordered military forces to open fire on 17 December, causing many deaths and injuries.


    Hmmmmmmmm?<AckbarTrap>

    92 is actually the most optimistic length I have for my own life. Anything farther than that would stun me. Anything after your 70s really becomes uncertain.

    You're entitled to your opinion, and I'm not offended or anything, but that is still a piece of shit thing to say and reflects poorly on how you were raised.

    Well yeah, Trump was putting Jeb on blast and humiliating him.

    Its doubtful Trump has called Bush 43 for advice.

    Heck of a lot better than Nancy Reagan. I like her and H.W., though I disagree with much of their politics.

    Sad to hear. She always seemed to conduct herself with class and grace in her position
