That's what Presidents do, present and former. It was an event; of course they're all going to say nice things. They're politicians, afterall. Bush looked like he was crying when President Obama spoke. Barbara Bush was sitting next to the President having a grand old time. Pres. Bush Sr. looked unwell.<quoted text>
The joke about the sketches was most appreciated by Bush himself.
Thousands of Africans are alive today thanks to Bush's humanitarian efforts in the AIDs epidemic.
Do you not find that admirable?
Thousands of women in the Middle East now go to school, have jobs and even hold office thanks to Bush's belief that freedom belongs to everyone.
Do you, as a women, not find that equally admirable?
Iraqis now vote for elected leaders thanks to Bush's courage in doing what even Clinton would have done post 9/11.
All former democratic presidents couldn't praise Bush enough for his contributions and service to this country and to humankind.
You don't agree with your party's former presidents?
Did you see Obama's speech? I'm convinced he now sees Bush in a whole different light.
Yesterday was a great day for America. It reminded us why Bush's approval ratings are now tied with Obama's. He was a much better president who had strong convictions than the weasels made him out to be for political gain which, as we are witnessing, is backfiring.
But as the old saying goes, "what goes around, comes around."
The quip about the nude paintings was hilarious.
All Presidents share that commonality that no one else will ever know. Jimmy Carter was close friends with Gerald Ford.
