Daddy Bush: A ‘Little’ Jealous Of Obama

  How refreshingly honest and cute!  I am waiting for ‘W’ to call a press conference to say that Daddy (#41) was misinterpreted. 🙂

There’s been plenty of second-guessing from Republican critics about Barack Obama’s large-scale public events and speeches scheduled for his visit to Europe this week — but former President George H.W. Bush isn’t one of them.

Asked today whether, as a former head of state who has a sensitivity about protocol, he has any thoughts about the appropriateness of Obama’s planned events, the former President replied, “A little jealous, is all.”

The former president, who says he’s just returned from a visit to Germany’s Brandenburg gate, added that Obama will “figure it out.”



  1. He is honest. I never had a problem with the elder Bush. It’s is idiot son I have the issues with. Obama’s foreign policy positions are pretty close to Bush 41 as well. (I read that yesterday someplace … I cannot find the link again though.)

  2. I agree, George H.W. was an OK president.
