example

There are a lot of mean things I could say about those who deliberately misrepresent the largely uncelebrated work and quiet grace of Laura Bush.

There are many ugly names I could call Michelle Obama, who has lately been acting like an ignorant, self-absorbed, bitter, vindictive human being.

But I won't.

Instead, I'll try to be gracious and conduct myself with class. I'll act like a (former first) lady...

...who could probably teach our current one a thing or two.

I always thought Mrs. Bush epitomized "Quiet, understated elegance".
But I sure won't disagree with you about Mrs. "O"!

I could not agree with you more! Laura is and was a class act. I always perceived that she did not want to be in the spotlights, not the case now.

I agree 110%. Laura is one classy lady. Way better than her predecessor or successor.

Something our current 1st lady wouldn't know a thing about.

Say what you will about the Bush Administration, but Laura Bush was always the epitome of class, tact, and grace

Well, the Left wanted to start a class war.

On one-side, we have high class, opposing we have no class.

When it comes to class ... President Bush has made it a point to be quiet and make no criticisms of President Obama.

President Obama has blamed everything on Bush from the economic crisis (to the extent government was to blame, the dems were as much to blame as the repubs) to the pork filled spending bill passed by the new congress and signed by him.

Hopefully 4 years from now we'll be seeing how classy Mr. Obama is after he's out of office ...

That's not acting.

I always thought the Bush men married very well, both Laura and Barbara made me feel special even when I disagreed with their husbands about stuff. Graceful Ladies both, but then men are the Bulls in the China shoppe.

Sorry. You can't teach those who cannot learn. Laura Bush is an incredible lady. It turns my stomach to think what kind of beast is sleeping on the white house linens these days.

Justin said...

In order for the current 1st lady to learn anything, she would first need to accept that she may be flawed (GASP!). Not gonna happen.

Comparing Laura Bush to Michelle Obama is like comparing a fine long stem red rose to a steaming dog turd.

Y'all get the picture right?

I'm just sayin'...
