Well as George and Laura Bush’s memoirs are about to be puiblished let the revisionist history and “cover thy ass” passages begin!
“In 2004 the social question that animated the campaign was gay marriage. Before the election season had unfolded, I had talked to George about not making gay marriage a significant issue. We have, I reminded him, a number of close friends who are gay or whose children are gay. But at that moment I could never have imagined what path this issue would take and where it would lead.”
Now I never really likes Laura. I always thought of her as Barbara Bush lite. And I truly think this is a way of trying to rewrite history and is just an attempt to soften the Bush legacy historically.
When asked about the Gay marriage issue in 2004 her response in her best clenched anus, librarian swarmish way. “I think they should welcome the debate”. Why I remember it was because of that cold, indifferant, heartless tone.
IF they did ever have gay friends like she said.
I can only hope that they had some self respect and they are their enemies now.
