LIVE THREAD: George W. Bush Presidential Library Dedication Ceremony
C-SPAN3 ^ | April 25 | Staff

Posted on 04/25/2013 7:57:49 AM PDT by PghBaldy

The George W. Presidential Center is a state-of-the-art facility located on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Opening to the public on May 1, 2013, the Center will house the George W. Bush Institute and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. The Library and Museum is the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, a Federal agency.

I hope I am doing this right, and not stepping on toes, but did not see thread.

Will be interesting to watch Obama turn his speech about President Bush into an fictional autobiography of himself and all his own ‘accomplishments’.

Not sure I can stomach it.

Me, too.

Loved the applause for Cheney and how quiet the crowd was when Barry0 was introduced. And how W’s chin quivered as the flag passed.

Very nostalgic today.

Watching. I plan on visiting when we go to Texas in July.

In summer of 2010, on our trip to TX we had planned to stop in Little Rock and visit the Billy Jeff library, then on the UT Austin for LBJ and A&M for Daddy Bush . . . but a little mishap on the River Walk in Little Rock, I fell and fracture my ankle so didn’t get to go . . . the TX libraries were in addition to campus visits for our then junior high school daughter. Ah the best laid of plans gone wrong.

I think I’ll sign up for the charter membership for GW Bush library, at least for this year. Gets us entry for our family.

But the one I really, really want to visit . . . Ronald Reagan’s. One of these days I’ll make it out there for a visit.

Apparently trips to Texas combined with trips to Little Rock to visit the Clinton Museum are ill-fated.

In August, 2010, I took a road trip to Dallas with my then-significant other. Decided I wanted to see the Clinton Library on the way home, so we routed our way home thru their.

Unfortunately, while in Dallas, she picked up a terrible case of food poisoning. It worked out that we got there late enough and she was hungry for the first time in several days. By the time we ate, the library was closed.

I want to get there someday!

Did I just hear Jimma say something gracious about W? The Sudan story was nice.

Pigs are flying.

(But the cutaway of W’s skeptical grin was priceless.)

Yes, GWB is looking better and better!

George W. Bush’s approval rating just hit a 7-year high. Here’s how.

Posted by Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan on April 23, 2013
Christian Science Monitor

Days before the official opening of his presidential library, George W. Bush is experiencing something of a comeback when it comes to his public image.

Almost as many people (47 percent) approve of how Bush handled his eight years in office as disapprove (50 percent), according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. That’s the highest approval rating for Bush since December 2005. Bush’s approval dipped all the way to 23 percent in Post-ABC polling in October 2008 and was just 33 percent in January 2009 when he left office. (His approval rating was below 40 percent for 26 consecutive months before his term ended, the longest streak of sub-40 presidential ratings since polling began in the 1930s.)

And, what’s fascinating is that it’s not just Bush’s overall job approval numbers but the intensity measures. In the new Post-ABC poll, 34 percent say they “strongly” disapprove of the job he did while in office; that’s the lowest strong disapprove number for Bush since January 2005.

Bush’s biggest gains over the past few years have come among seniors (30 percent approval in 2008, 57 percent approval today), non-college whites (34 percent in 2008, 57 percent now) and moderate/conservative Democrats (10 percent in 2008, 33 percent now).

Who hasn’t changed their views of Bush? African Americans (90 percent disapproval in 2008, 84 percent disapproval now) and Democrats (90 percent disapproval in ’08, 73 percent now).

Here’s a chart — courtesy of the good people at Capital Insight — detailing the comparison between Bush’s aggregate 2008 numbers and his showing in the new Post-ABC poll across a variety of subgroups.

Clinton says he told Obama that this was the latest greatest presidential library to attempt to re write history.

Not funny..crowd did not laugh.
