A lot of us cry when President Obama speaks - not because we're moved to tears.<quoted text>
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.
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.
However, it was clear Obama sees Bush in a whole different light.
Bush, Sr. is almost 90 and just got out of the hospital recently. It was amazing he was able to be there.
