Thank You, President Bush

This happened over a week ago, but I just heard about it now. There was no press coverage, because the Bushes wanted it that way and kept the visit secret – Lord only knows how the Bush-deranged press would have handled it anyway – but “Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood … and spent ‘considerable time’ consoling those who were wounded in [the] shooting spree” according to Fox News.

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News. The couple was described as “deeply concerned” about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38. The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.

This is the way a President is expected to behave. This is a class act. And, according to a really good post over at HillBuzz.org (a Democrat pro-Hillary site), “The Obamas should have done that. But didn’t. Wouldn’t.”

We hope if any of you encounter them you will let them know this is deeply appreciated beyond partisan lines. We will never look at the Bushes, the Bush presidencies, or their legacies the same again… and someday when his presidential library is built, we will be so proud to visit there and tell anyone will listen about November 10th, 2009, the day we finally appreciated former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura.

I know the Bushes didn’t want publicity on this, but this is something that I need to share. And to remember.
