Except for the Socks Of Course
George H. W. Bush is one of the few American Presidents who was defeated in his bid for a second term. But given his post Presidency actions and a realization of what he did do in office it is clear today that if the voters knew then what they know now Mr. Bush would have been handily re-elected. In particular Mr. Bush recognized reality when he agreed to raise taxes to close a rising budget deficit, even as he had pledged not to, and his decision NOT to invade
Iraq was a
terrific one, and one which his son should have emulated as well.
Now comes the news that Mr. and Mrs. Bush were witnesses at a wedding, but not just any wedding.
George H.W. Bush is witness at same-sex
Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara served as an official witnesses Saturday at the
wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, co-owners of a Kennebunk
general store. Thorgalsen posted a photo on Facebook of the 41st commander-in-chief
signing a set of documents for them at an outdoor celebration: “Getting our
marriage license witnessed!” Maine

Well nice going George and Barbara. Nice going.
