Barbara Bush is ready to move on.

“I’m tired now of the elections,” the wife of former President George H.W. Bush said at an event at Lyndon Johnson’s presidential library, according to Reuters. “People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly.”
Barbara Bush also weighed in firmly on the side of working with President Barack Obama: “They are going to have to compromise. It’s not a dirty word.”

1. Oh please.

 

She is just pretending to be kind so she can push her grandson into office.

If Americans put another Bush by any name into office then it is official - something in the water is making people stupid.

5. It means they want to be sane so Jeb is the nominee in 2016- and it's working

 

we have heard from Karen Hughes
we have heard from Jeb
we have heard from W
we have heard from others

be vigilant and remember, it takes a Clinton in 2016 to beat a Bush, like in 1992.

10. Huh, I guess she can "waste (her) beautiful mind" on this but not on...

body bags and death when it comes to Iraq. She is a despicable POS.

"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"
