Well, if that's NOT the pot calling the kettle "beige".

I guess that she forgot her husband's 1988 campaign that openly embraced racism towards blacks with Lee Atwater pulling race cards from the bottom of the deck.

I guess that she forgot her son's 2004 campaign with all of the anti-gay initiatives in the swing states for the get-out-the-bigot vote.

I guess that she forgot when she referred to Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 as something that "rhymed with witch".

Either she's the best liar in the country or she's got a serious case of dementia.

Barbara Bush: GOP race is 'worst campaign'
My favorite Grandma Bush moment was when she put in an appearance at the Houston Astrodome with the Katrina victims, and said, considering their level of poverty in pre-hurricane NO, camping out in the Astrodome was "a step up" for them. Almost makes me feel sorry for Shrub (almost).

That being said, she's got a point. Watching Romney trying to dig out of the rubble of this mess and mount a general campaign should be high comedy.

You're right. I forgot about that "gem". Gramms shoots out some good ones now and then.

I agree with her, I have never, in over 50 years of voting seen candidates attack other candidates over and over like this one. We are not talking about 2 candidates we are talking over and over.....

Yeah it's been undecided this far in, but it's unusual to have the lead change so many times and to have so many people still in the race. While Paul is a loser, he's still in and taking votes. Look at the '76 race. It went to the convention, but there were 2 people coming in vying for votes.

In so much as what she said, it's more an indictment of the thought of many people that compromise is a dirty word and that things are overly polarized. I can't say I disagree.

I don't get her attitude, but I notice the MSM is doing it's best to push this meme. This has been a great GOP election cycle, with all sides of the GOP family teeing off against each other - moderates vs. conservatives vs. libertarians - what could be better? We know the Democrats have become inflexibly beholden to ultra-liberal side of the party, and most likely will ride that horse to defeat. The GOP has been forced to grow and examine it's priorities, and despite the attempts by the left and the MSM to hijack the process by portraying it as something else, IMO they will turn Obama out in a landslide. And I suspect internal polling data by the Obama re-election team confirms that, or else why would they be pushing this silly contraception contretemps on the American public?

This administration is hollow and unpopular, and they know it.

Did you hear the interview, because this is not what it was about or what she said.

This is the complete interview. Barbara Bush is a sharp lady and she knows it's time to get behind one candidate and focus on the bigger goal.

Barbara Bush is the epitome of an uncaring nasty old blue blood. Her world is one where people "know their place".
