ALOHA, ALL!! I didn’t agree with George Bush on everything. In fact, he infuriated me a few times. But I never doubted his sincerity, love of country and our military, and true empathy for others. On Wednesday – Independence Day – most of us were watching (or even marching in) parades, going to cook-outs and enjoying fireworks shows. Check out what George and Laura Bush were doing: Zambia – July 4, 2012 The Bushes visited the Kasisi Children’s Home, in Lusaka, Zambia. Kasisi is home to approximately 230 orphaned children between infant to university age range. This was part of a week-long trip to Zambia and Botswana, Africa, to promote the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon initiative of the George W Bush Presidential Center. OMG…looks like Kanye West lied when he said this (not only that, he’s basically incoherent and Mike Myers should have slapped him):
Happy Birthday, President Bush!! You are a class act and true patriot!!
Meanwhile, Preezy has started his marvelous Midwest tour (on his Canadian-made bus) and stopped in Ohio on Thursday. Gotta love this photo of Barry at Ziggy’s pub in Amherst!
Apparently when Barry walked in the door of the pub, Fox News was on. He told them they should turn it off. Way to go! That’s a great way to make friends in rural Ohio. Maybe next time you should say “How about those Wolverines?”
In Other News:
Romney Campaign, RNC, Raise Over $100 Million in June “Dems are also countering the Romney fundraising boon by raffling off a cup of coffee with Joe Biden and lunch with Debbie Downer.” LOL!!!!
Team Obama Celebrates July 4 With Paris Fundraiser “The Obama campaign will host events in Geneva, Switzerland in August as part of their “European outreach effort.” George Clooney will headline a fundraiser there, with 150 tickets going for $20,000 per piece. There’s even more to the bargain: if you go as a couple, the second ticket is half-off!”
White House: “Don’t Read Too Much Into Unemployment Numbers” “If the size of the U.S. labor force as a share of the total population was the same as it was when Barack Obama took office—65.7% then vs. 63.8% today—the U-3 unemployment rate would be 10.9%. Even if you take into account that the LFP should be declining as America ages, the unemployment rate would be 10.5%.”
31% Give Obama Positive Marks on Handling the Economy “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows just 31% of Likely Voters believe President Obama is doing a good or excellent job handling economic issues, including 12% who say he is doing an excellent job.” Gotta wonder who those 12% are!
Teacher’s Union is Hemorrhaging Members “The National Education Association (NEA) has lost more than 100,000 members since 2010. By 2014, union projections show, it could lose a cumulative total of about 308,000 full-time teachers and other workers, a 16% drop from 2010. Lost dues will shrink NEA’s budget an estimated $65 million, or 18%.” HOORAY!!!!!
Final Thought: “America is a nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.” George W. Bush
