Did GWB tell her, "Woman, you better mind me on this"?

The pervasive rumor in Dallas circles is that Laura spends most of her time in the house on Daria Place in North Dallas, and that George W. spends most of his time at the ranch in Crawford.

I have a feeling that Mrs. Bush doesn't take many orders from the former President. It's more that she is a very private person, and doesn't want to be thrust into the spotlight, except on her own terms.

Who cares what she thinks?She should go on Teen Mom and tell those (straight) people to use birth control before marriage.

Too bad. It was a good commercial, though they could get a better quote from Chaney.

Maybe she has had time to rethink her statement and has realized that good intentions always have unintended consequences.

“The positive role of limited government has always been the defense of these fundamental principles. The conservative movement is founded on the simple tenet that people have the right to live life as they please, as long as they don't hurt anyone else in the process."

"Religious factions will go on imposing their will on others unless the decent people connected to them recognize that religion has no place in public policy. They must learn to make their views known without trying to make their views the only alternatives."

“There has always been homosexuality, ever since man and woman were invented. I guess there were gay apes. So that's not an issue. The Republican Party should stand for freedom and only freedom. Don't raise hell about the gays, the Blacks and the Mexicans. Free people have a right to do as they damn well please."

"The big thing is to make this country, along with every other country in the world with a few exceptions, quit discriminating against people just because they're gay. You don't have to agree with it, but they have a constitutional right to be gay."

doubt he would have advanced progessive marriage rights or even civil rights if elected in 64. He came around later on these issues. And who knows what he might have done in vietnam?
