A Class Act


George H. W. Bush explains why he won’t be attending Trump’s inaugural. This was sent before he was hospitalized. Let’s hope and pray that he quickly recovers. He is a youthful 92 years old.

Poppy Bush is from the old school, when politics wasn’t a blood sport.

This is an open thread.

  1. I voted for GHWB in 1988, and he was the last Republican I voted for until 2008.

    You know how you feel after people have been mean to you , and then someone kind comes along, and yoiu just wantnto cry? That is how that letter made me feel. That was such a nice letter. Thanks GH.

  3. The Democrat protesters that are being bused in will get dropped off early near the event and then the buses will go park. The protestors will be herded around by the organizers and then they will have to stand around waving signs (homemade or issued to them) and chanting until the event ends. Then they will be herded back to wherever the buses pick them up to take them home.

    No sight-seeing or wandering off alone.

      I kind of hope there is a rain storm, ice storm, snow storm that’s cloud is only over the protesters 😉

      I did a “peace” march in DC several years ago. Still made my own hotel and travel plans. Thought I’d save money flying into DCA and staying in a Crystal City hotel. Whoops, the metro was shut down (repairs?), couldn’t get into the city, my travel buddy was looking forward to Laura Bush’s Book Festival on the Mall (another several thousands). Metro decided to do “maintenance” ? I will never do another “save money” event in DC again. We both finally made it to our events, but still pissed how DC runs these things. Walkies!

  5. Here is something Trump could start that nobody could object to – Once a year hold a weekend retreat at Camp David with all the living ex-presidents. No press. No politics.

    Just a meeting of the world’s most exclusive club.

    • NBD says:

      What would be the point of that? Seems like a colossal waste of time and money.

      • Somebody says:

        Unity, advice, understanding, a varied sounding board. The truth is just about all Presidents confer with former Presidents at some point.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Love that idea. The past 8 years of Obama dissed Camp David so bad, I doubted it was a functional family.

      • kanaughty says:

        I love maryland, it’s countryside/mountains are gorgeous. So personally i would have loved to spend time at camp david if i were prez. Obama missed out on the beauty of nature that was so close but would feel so far from dc.

    Last Booknado post this month – new novels from the “alt-write”

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Yes, please.

    Tim Kaine just brought up Russia and the Confederate flag among other things in the Tom Price HHS hearing. What a douche

    • votermom says:

      That must be so much fun, biking all the way from Texas to DC.
      Need ear plugs though!

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Before Mom moved in with me, I would go up to Pennsylvania for Memorial Day so we could plant flowers at the gravesites. I would see always see the bikers coming in the other direction down I-70 on their way to DC. It was loud – but very impressive.

    • Lulu says:

      It is like the inauguration of Andrew Jackson. The backwoodsmen deplorables came to town and climbed in the windows of the White House, stood on the furniture, had a drink or two. “Jackson had a huge, popular following, and his inauguration was a sea change for American politics.”

      “A crowd of 10,000 to 20,000 people showed up at the Capitol for the inauguration, some traveling from 500 miles away for the event. The sight stunned Washington society and Jackson’s political enemies, who already feared “mob rule” under Jackson.” http://blog.constitutioncenter.org/2013/03/the-story-of-the-wildest-party-in-white-house-history/

      Good times! Enemies fearing, socialites squealing, and the media afraid. May the mob rule!

      • taw46 says:

        I always love that story. Backwoodsmen rule!

      • blowme0bama says:

        That’s how Trump struck me, I guess August of 15 when I was starting to warm up to him. He is Jacksonian Democrat.

        • Lulu says:

          Populist. So was Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt but in a more refined way. LOL. The party labels are becoming obsolete and burdensome.

      • Dora says:

        I’ve heard Trump compared to Andrew Jackson several times during the campaign. No wonder Pocahontas hates him so. 🙂

        • Lulu says:

          I think it was Walter Russell Mead who wrote about this first. Or at least that was the first I noticed. The parallels are significant. People forget that Jackson was a very rich guy (for his time and area) too. And a Scot and born rebel and fighter with a messy personal life.

          • Lulu says:

            Trump duels with Twitter unlike Jackson who didn’t have Twitter but would probably have LOVED it. Jackson had a “smart mouth” on him too!

    • CiscoKid says:

      Now, now. She’s a Hollywood star and as such , a person who knows so much more than us peons.
      If rocks in her head haven’t hurt her, one or two down there can’t be all that bad.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I have been very bad the past few days. I keep referring to that chart that indicates that if you are a USA citizen then as of Friday, Trump is your president even if you did not vote for him. I see it as providing free mental health services.

      Now it looks as if I may need to expand my services to GYN to explain that steam, gravel and girls parts do not mix well.

    Check this out gang.


    • CiscoKid says:

      That’s why I use the Internet blogs for what’s really going on.
      Rubio, Cruz, Grassley, Schummer, why am I not surprised?
      And there’s an awful lot of Republicans on that list

      • cynic says:

        Look at what the top 3 Presidential candidates received (from that site):
        1 Clinton, Hillary (D) $2,028,353
        2 Sanders, Bernie (D) $309,575
        3 Trump, Donald (R) $225,906

    Haha, sorry I missed this. Because I saw how he went after Price.

    • kanaughty says:

      Oh god, that was so funny. I saw franken question him live, then later it came back up and there was mention of maybe franken didn’t know he had tobacco in his portfolio either, yadda yadda yadda. It was hilarious that within that time someone discovered it and he and everyone questioning price about his stock portfolio was made to look the fool.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Honestly, he was funny in Stuart Saves his Family.

    Just got a blip that Pence’s motorcade was struck and at least one of the DC officers is injured.

    I am laughing so hard at this.

    the term red light district came from the railroad breakmen hanging their lanterns on the door knob outside while they went inside to visit the hookers.
    guess a little bit more history should be taught


    • CiscoKid says:

      Not to far off base.
      A police district in Chicago was experiencing a rash of burglariesin the same neighborhood. One house would get hit, but two or three houses down wouldn’t.
      A bright young detective worked on the case and figured out what is called a pattern, a common thread in all the cases.
      The homes hit had one of those gun free signs in the window.
      Cops worked on that assumption and caught the guys involved.
      During interviews the bad guys said yes, that was the reason they hit those particular homes.
      If someone was home they knew they’d be unarmed.
      Case closed.

  26. taw46 says:

    OK, Denise, guess you are leaving early in the morning. I hope you will be able to check in with us and let us know how you are doing with all the festivities. Wish you had a smart phone, so we could get live updates and photos. We will be looking for you at the Deploraball and thinking of you at the other events. Stay safe! Hang out with the bikers. 😉 You are representing all of us the next two days!

  27. CiscoKid says:

    Speaking of crime, here’s a piece I chopped from the University of Chicago annual crime lab report for 2016.
    “What does remain abundantly clear is that the historically poorer, disadvantaged neighborhoods of Chicago saw the highest homicide rates, and African Americans continue to be affected the most by gun violence, comprising 78 percent of Chicago’s homicide victims.”
    BLM, Obama, Emanuel, any Democrat’s listening?
    Boycotting Dem’s stop on by.

    • Jadzia says:

      At least when I was a student there, the neighborhoods surrounding U of C were incredibly violent. That’s pretty much the first thing they tell you when you get to Hyde Park. The law school, which is on the school’s southern border, literally had a fence separating it from the hood.

    • Lulu says:

      “conversant in the art and popular culture of this country”
      As anyone with a brain knows it is a minority sub-culture and NOT followed nor embraced by the majority. It was rejected by a now loud and defiant at least plurality. These pockets of “Obama culture” are disconnected from the rest of the country.

  28. Dora says:

    (VIDEO) Jesse Jackson: Obama Must Pardon Hillary Clinton, a GOP “Trophy in the Name of False Justice”

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson has called for a blanket pardon for Hillary Clinton before President Barack Obama leaves office, similar to what President Gerald Ford did for Richard Nixon.

    The mane event! Trump’s wax figure is unveiled by Madame Tussauds and it took FIVE WEEKS to carefully coif that presidential comb-over strand by strand

    Someone just texted me this insane video lol

    • taw46 says:

      It’s gator eat gator out there in the wild, I saw one like that once. I have also seen gators walk around with pigs in their mouths. And all sorts of other creatures. Mother Nature is rough! 🐊🐖🐊

      • lyn says:

        You have more courage than I do! That photo freaks me out!

        • taw46 says:

          Oh no, no courage, I was on the bus, lol. I led tours out there for 10 yrs (the space center). There were a few times gators got too close at our stops, when we exited the bus. The driver and I had to constantly be on the lookout. And when I and my friends would go out there on our own, to visit old launch pads, I was scared to death one would show up, haha. But the huge pigs were more dangerous than the gators.

      That ship done sailed. And he looks like a lying ass now which of course he is. And Trump doesn’t care if he goes to a swearing in ceremony or not. Cummings played badly and lost.

    Woooooo-Woooooooo, from the “Trump” train, next stop Richmond !
