Barbara Bush gushes about Bill Clinton, says he treats George H. W. Bush like a father
NY Daily News ^ | 7/14/12 | JONATHAN LEMIRE

Posted on 07/14/2012 6:53:58 AM PDT by jimbo123

Bill Clinton may have forced her husband out of office - but Barbara Bush still considers him family.

The former First Lady lavished praise on the man who defeated George H.W. Bush in 1992, lovingly saying that Clinton is “a good fellow” who is “very thoughtful about calling.”

“He never said a mean word about anyone,” she said in an interview with Parade Magazine set to appear this weekend.

She even revealed that her sons - including, of course, George W. Bush, who followed Clinton into the Oval Office - call him “My brother by another mother.”

“He’s very nice,” Barbara Bush continued. “I think she thinks of George [Sr.] as the father he never had.”

If Clinton had a father like George Bush he might actually have amounted to something. Just kidding, sort of.

Bill Clinton spends more time in Kennebunkport than he does his own home. He was there a couple of weeks ago. Probably still there now.

If Barbara Bush had another daughter-in-law she'd look like Monica Lewinski.

This is just an example of the characteristic of old ladies to always see the best in people and ignore their failings, call it the “Such a nice boy...” syndrome. It doesn’t help that she was a liberal country-clubber to begin with.

The Bushes are elitist a##holes, might as well call them what they are, they agree with ‘rats, just want to get to the same political goals a little differently, maybe.

But he is "very thoughtful about calling", and that's all that matters. Everything else is whitewater under the bridge.

She’s an old lady, kind of unseemly to attack her at this stage in her life. Who she likes and what she says doesn’t really matter all that much.

Bill Clinton really never had a father nor much of a family, so he's found one with the Bushes, and politics aside they are a big, loving, good-hearted, welcoming family. I don't think there's anything nefarious, and I wish he wasn't hanging around with them, but I sure can understand his relationship with them.

Who knows, maybe it will be good for him.

Thats a good point. We should start an over/under on how long it will be before the Democrats nominate a presidential candidate who knows who his father is.

It will come and it will trample. They may not even fully comprehend what this beast will be. It cannot be stopped from coming. It *will* come. It can only be stopped at the end by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Because this thing is ultimately powered by Satan, the “god” of this world (for now - 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4).

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+13:1&version=KJV

Revelation 13:1

King James Version (KJV)

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+17:3&version=KJV

Revelation 17:3

King James Version (KJV)

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel%207:7-8&version=KJV

Daniel 7:7-8

King James Version (KJV)

7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel%207:19-25&version=KJV

Daniel 7:19-25

King James Version (KJV)

19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

“Statist birds of a feather.”

Thank you. I was going to post essentially the same thing. They all share the common trait of being proponents of big government.

For Clinton, his attachment to the Bushes has been a convenient (if not clever) way to repair his tawdry image. IMHO the Bushes really need to question the wisdom of welcoming a notious philanderer into their family circle. Just sayin...

Barbara Bush and I had a falling out when she attacked Sarah Palin. She can take her husband and her two boys and
