What is Shrub up to nowadays, anyways?

There are a ton of news stories about Poppy (apparently he's feeling better) but W's disappearing act seems to be remarkably complete. Is he still doing that AIDS relief thing? Mugging grandparents for fun?

2. I like to think he's waiting for spring training

I understand he landed his dream gig as a 'Ball Dude' for an East Texas minor league baseball teem. Free hot dogs and beer, WooHoo!

6. Did not hear that he has visited his ailing father in the hospital

Wonder if his father's filters have quit working and he is saying what a fuck-up and disappointment, Jr. turned out to be. I think he is furious Chimpy, wrecked Jeb's chances of running and leaving a better family legacy.
The family has been trashed, the party and the country ruined, by his one man wrecking team of a shallow son.

10. I suspect Poppy always viewed W with some resignation-- like, too bad W took after the >>>

>>>drunken doofus branch of the family (I'm sure there are several who stayed out of the limelight while Poppy's thieving patron genetic strain and Barbara/Jeb's Big Giant Head branch did the heavy lifting)

14. It has been discussed and widely believed that this photo is bush, sr. crying at the end..

of jeb's reign as governor because they both (jeb and poppy) realize that
this is the end of jebby's political career and that junior ruined it for all of their futures.

ps...jeb always looks like an unmade bed...

20. He hasn't been back since he left DC

His "Beloved Prairie Chapel Ranch" (formerly know as the Sowell Hog Farm) has been on the soft market since the day after he left the WH - no takers.

According to friends of mine who live in Preston Hollow, he rarely leaves his house.

16. probably too hard to sober him up for the cameras

otherwise, you'd be seeing him visiting his daddy every 5 minutes.

He's more likely waking up only when he hears Pops takes a turn for the worse ... inheritance time to blow on more booze (he is, after all, the "first-born", and thus gets the legacy ...)

I have a relative who attended and he was a speaker at their breakfast gathering. No pic taking was allowed.

19. Sitting in a recliner in his underwear, watching a football game

while partaking of Jack Daniels and Cheetos. Which is fine with me, since I don't want to see him out in public ever again unless he's doing the perp walk somewhere.

23. OK. You made me curious, so I Googled.

The only thing that I can find is that he is offering his pickup truck (2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4x4 SuperCrew) up for auction with the proceeds going to a charity, the Fisher House Foundation, which provides no-charge temporary housing for the families of military members being treated for injuries.

He has autographed the passenger side air bag panel.

32. If Shrub disappears and goes unmentioned long enough,

more people may forget how much of a disaster his pResidency was. They say that former presidents become more popular the longer they're out of office.

36. Shrub may be the only substance, other than sulfur, that never stops stinking.

Referring to Bush's own U.N. speech yesterday, Chavez said, "The devil came right here... And it still smells of sulfur today."

...he's a speaking gun for hire...

http://www.washingtonspeakers.com/speakers/speaker.cfm?SpeakerID=6436

President during a momentous period in American history, George W. Bush offers his thoughts on eight years in the Oval Office, the challenges facing our nation in the 21st century, the power of freedom, the role of faith and other pressing issues.


I'm sure if you've got $25 or 50k lying around, he'd be glad to chat ya up.

35. When he left president position he said he was out of politics & so it was.

Last edited Sat Dec 29, 2012, 03:31 PM - Edit history (1)

I don't know what he is scared of? Young ex-president Bush never even appeared at the republican primary or with Romney. Not one speech with the party who elected him ever again.

Guess we will never know why Bush is terrified of his own party and the people in his own admin.

giving the keynote speech at some investors' conference there. The event was closed to the media.
