Not much changes in this family.

56. Backwards. He's trying to put her credit cards back in the purse.
He'd been out all day spending her money, and now he's trying to cover his tracks.

No doubt, Daddy will bail his sorry ass out of trouble.

13. I noticed the tie "thing" too.
That could be just an inside family joke I guess.

Not knowing what members of that brood became I'd think that was a cute family that looked delighted to be around each other. A bunch of kids cuttin' up.

But I can't "un-know" what I know now.

So I can't see this as a "charming" family photo.

And the cigarette is REALLY low class.

What? You couldn't put the damn thing down for a minute?

Very preppy. Any idea when this photo was taken? 1968 or so?
World was certainly not at peace but the Bushes were never into truthtelling.

38. strictly amateur
Not only is the syntax exceptionally bad, look at the layout. There's no balance or symmetry. It literally looks like bush sr or beautiful mind babs wrote it out at the printer's office and told them a proof wasn't necessary.

The wording is ridiculous, too. "All the George Bushes." How awkward, not to say etiquette-challenged.

Just one more example of ignorant, ignorant people. And to think the marlboro man is supposedly in charge of the world's biggest economy/military/demockery. As the arresting officer in the Larry Craig case said, "No wonder we're going down the tubes!"

58. George's juvenile desire to make statements in photos never ended.
The "hard ass" cigarette in the family Christmas photo, flipping off the camera, and his latest endless run of his dumbshit "hook 'em horns" symbol in photo after photo as President.

Some people never grow up.

I trying to recall.... has anyone ever suggested that Bush simply doesn't have the gravitas to handle the job? :sarcasm:
