Smith in Oregon   May 11th, 2010 7:38 pm ET

Laura Bush acts like someone that has lived in a glass house for the previous 8 years as America sank into the deep abyss which she is trying vainly to climb out of today.

Question, does Laura Bush realize that her husband is actively seen as one of the WORSE former American Presidents in American History?

Does Laura Bush realize the possibility that human rights criminal charges might be enforced upon her husband if they travel overseas thru those country's?


Donald   May 11th, 2010 8:51 pm ET

Hi Larry ask Laura how was life around the white house on 9-11 ? Thanks Larry I'm from Augusta Ga


Smith in Oregon   May 11th, 2010 9:01 pm ET

Laura Bush what does it feel like to be married to a man that many in America and around the world claim is a War Criminal?


Rand from Spokane   May 11th, 2010 9:02 pm ET

Good evening all.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Your a great lady Mrs. Bush does Dick Chaney come over to bird hunt still .


Cindy   May 11th, 2010 9:04 pm ET

Larry,
Thanks for having Laura Bush on tonight. I think she was a great First Lady, very modest and gracious.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:04 pm ET

Tell Jeb to run for president .


Jessica   May 11th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

Question: How did it make you feel to hear the media criticize the former President regarding his response to Hurricane Katrina?

Thank you.


Glad Burr   May 11th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

Were any charges brought up against Mrs Bush for the tragic accident she caused when she was young and if so what were they? And if not why not?


jack   May 11th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

Larry, ask Laura if she feels that the Iraq war was a moral and just war.


brian   May 11th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

During your time as first lady. What were the favorite places that you visited.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

I dont care what other people say George was a good president and great at playing dodge the shoe .


Rand from Spokane   May 11th, 2010 9:12 pm ET

The Bush family is a good family whether you agree with their politics or not. My wife had the honor of sitting at the table next to Barbara at a lunch several years ago, said she was a joy to be with very gracious and hates to cook.


Kim in Naperville, il   May 11th, 2010 9:13 pm ET

Mrs. Bush.....
You are the absolute picture of elegance and grace and like Nancy Reagan, exactly what a first lady to the United States Of America. Thank you for the impact you have had on this country. Thank you to your Husband, President Bush, for his service and digified leadership especially after 9/11. I pray God's continued blessing on your lives.
I can't wait to read your book.


Chaney, La.   May 11th, 2010 9:15 pm ET

I am a Lib/Dem but I really think our FLOTUS regardless of party are really cool, they are all smart, gracious,and are the unsung heroes of the Whitehouse....it does'nt matter what sort of turmoil is going on around them they are always steady, calm, strong, maybe we should make the First Lady, president.


american citizen   May 11th, 2010 9:16 pm ET

I would like to know if Ms. Bush is going to donate the proceeds of her book sales to the family of the man that was killed in the accident she was in..it seems that would be the decent CHRISTIAN thing to do ...


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:16 pm ET

Mrs. Bush whats your thoughts on the Arizona bill and should Texas follow suit .


Joe G. (Illinois)   May 11th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

It’s not imperative for a nation in distress to reminisce about prior hiccups and bad decisions. Unless that nation is America and Borak Obama is president.. Because it would basically be a necessity to undermine and take away from the present, a much grimmer outlook.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:19 pm ET

Maybe that Crawford woman was cooking the meal that night .


Sonya   May 11th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

I would like to know what color/shade/brand of lipstick Mrs. Bush wears. She always wears that color as if that is her signature shade.


jack   May 11th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

Will she and her husband donate part of their book royalties to help the families of dead veterans, and help injured veterans?


IKHAN   May 11th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Hi Larry,
I feel sorry for her being married to a President who is responsible for committing the greatest folly in this nation's history, with his cohorts.
An act both insane & criminal in its ramifications for this nation & the world.
Iraq what else can one add.


Andrea in Ontario Canada   May 11th, 2010 9:23 pm ET

I wanted you to know that I appreciate you as an individual and as a former First Lady. You are an incredibly down to earth person. I enjoyed your appearance on Oprah's show last week.
I'm sure that you have some really positive White House memories, but if you had to choose your most memorable experience while in the White House what would it be?


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Whats your thoughts on the maranda rights .


john hutchinson   May 11th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

Did Laura and George see the movie W? Whta did they think of the movie and its accuracy?


Smith in Oregon   May 11th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Kennedy was never charged with involuntary manslaughter over the death of his passenger in a car accident either. It appears Laura Bush and Teddy did have a great deal in common. A Ironic meeting between them on 9/11. Teddy was haunted by the death of that young woman thru-out his entire life.


Rand from Spokane   May 11th, 2010 9:27 pm ET

Im sure President Bush is enjoying his retirement but I would like to see him doing some interviews once in a while. Like to hear his take on current events.


jack   May 11th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

Ask Laura the real story about the night her husband collapsed , and there were reports he choked on a pretzel.


mike farran   May 11th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

Just wondering if Mrs. Bush still smokes cigarettes?


Catherine Brown   May 11th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I'm wondering if Mrs. Bush is s purposefully TRYING to offend half the public by constantly saying, when asked if her marriage was ever in trouble, "Divorce is not in our DNA." Excuse me? The divorce that was thrust upon me was in my DNA??? Here I was thinking it was my abusive husband.

Not a good saying for her to keep repeating when the majority of her 'book buyers' are divorcees.


Daniel   May 11th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Mrs. Bush is a wonderful person. She has dignity and was a wonderful First Lady to represent America. She also must be a good mom, because her daughters seem down-to-earth and good people!


Z Rasheed   May 11th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Mrs. Laura Bush. Why did 911 happen? Why they thing us we are enemy of them. Why they try to kill our peoples and kids.


Trina Law   May 11th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

What is Laura Bush's future plans?


Daniel   May 11th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Does President GW Bush have a library? Where is it and when can people visit it? Does she have input for the library, etc?


jack   May 11th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Ask Laura if they are still close with the Cheneys. Also , does she think that the Vice President should have continued receiving huge income from Halliburton after he was in office? Why did Halliburton get a no bid contract for Iraq?


Daniel   May 11th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

omg! I had swimmer's ear and got vertigo once and that was scary.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Are you and George going to come to Grayson county when Reba comes .


Daniel   May 11th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

I think abortion is wrong, but it maybe should stay legal. In the future hopefully science will advance and people will not have to make this decision.


barbara   May 11th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

do you think you used the eight years you had in the white house efficiently or could you have done more to change the world.


Chris   May 11th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

Mrs. Bush,
Congratulations on the great job you and your husband have done in raising your two daughters. It was remarkable to hear their comments about your book and how touched they were by it. You clearly have a wonderful relationship with them.


Arlene Stenstrom   May 11th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

Hi Mrs. Bush,

I wanted to congratulate you on your book. I got it yesterday and am reading it now. Its really good. I really look up to you and your husband and I think he did a great job as president. I am looking forward to reading your husband's book when it comes out and also visiting the Presidential Centre when it opens.

Arlene
Alberta, Canada


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Looking at Carter just gave me vertigo .


Daniel   May 11th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Where is Barney? He in Dallas?


sandy   May 11th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Mrs Bush How do you think history will remember President Bush? I believe he was one of the best presidents. I felt safe with him in the White House. You are a wonderful First Lady and we love you both. Thank you for your service to our country.


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Larry get George to come on your show also .


elnora   May 11th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

I followed the Bushes from the first Bush family–i truely adore both you and the young pres bush. I always referred to you as mrs. laurie. Thanks for all the fond memories and the laughs. Thanks for the memories


Brian Dunbar   May 11th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

What does Laura think about the navy seals possibly being court marshalled for punching a terrorist?


Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   May 11th, 2010 9:57 pm ET

Mrs Bush

Did the family of the guy you accidentally killed forgave you?. Are you still in touch with them?

Is it true that you are a long suffering wife?

Thanks


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Mrs. Bush is a smart lady and know's not to make comments on present issues .


Mike in Texas   May 11th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

George is lucky to have a cute chick like you .


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

@ IKHAN

Laura's de-fense is protected and shrouded with solid gold sun-gods in the name of glory obstructing the Arlington view!


Mary   May 11th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Good evening Larry and team. I was never a fan of Pres. George W. Bush, however I was touched by Laura's candor and graciousness. Thanks for a revealing interview!


Alexa   May 11th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Mrs. Bush
Is it true that you'll be doing a book signing in Iraq?


Ron   May 11th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Laura Bush is an incredible person and her honesty, integrity and solid character should be a great example for any wife (and woman).

I hope that W and all of the Bush "clan" appreciate(s) her for the solid woman and influence that she has contributed.

I especially like her understanding (and apparent appreciation) of their strong and solid DNA!

Her dedication and commitment to W through good times and bad, sickness and health is commendable. She is also a great witness to some of the most important events of our time.


Carol beck   May 11th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

Laura Bush:
I am disappointed in your appearance on LKL tonight. I respect your husband , his presidency, and think you should respect him, get off LKL and get a real life. Your interview made me very angry. Do something good for someone.....you do your best when your'e working with kids.
Respectfully submitted,
Carol Beck


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:13 pm ET

@Arlene Stenstrom
.....your words..
I wanted to congratulate you on your book. I got it yesterday and am reading it now. Its really good......( I really look up to you and your husband and I think he did a great job as president.)...... I am looking forward to reading your husband's book when it comes out and also visiting the Presidential Centre when it opens.

You really have a dim view of accomplished leaders in the U.S. Out of all the presidents, that led this country, former President George W. Bush ranked as number 36th in a field of 42 surveyed, post service. Is it a distinct possibility you like the foul scent of failures?


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

@Carol beck

Tell me you view this country from abroad or have you been a tiny bit comatose during the eight years of Cheney-Bush? I seriously doubt that you would find a majority consensus of Republican Congressman and Senators that would share your view. You must be joking, but please make it a bit clearer when you are, because you have a sense of humor that is a bit on the dry side...


jack   May 11th, 2010 10:22 pm ET

@Arlene Stenstrom...He was a great prez. Wish you could have had him as your Prime Minister. I am sure you would have been quite thrilled.


Chris   May 11th, 2010 10:24 pm ET

@Cajazz,,
Funny how some always express concern about First Amendment rights but have a problem with someone exercising theirs. How Arlene Stenstrom feels about President Bush and/or Laura Bush really is no one's business except hers. It's interesting how so many on LKL continually criticize the religious and political beliefs of others, two areas where everyone has the right to chose. And, oh yes let me say it for you, they should not impose it on others. I did not see Arlene Stenstrom doing that; I have certainly seen many others here on LKL do that. I'm just sayin.


gerald Jolly   May 11th, 2010 10:27 pm ET

Definately, the class of the Bush Family.

You've just got to love her integrity and honesty.


gerald Jolly   May 11th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

@ Carol Beck.

Shame on you.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

@Mike in Tejas

Hey amigo, your one-liners are very humorous. I hope they were all made in jest and not meant to extrapolate conjecture for a job well-done toward a catastrophic, now defunct presidency....


gerald Jolly   May 11th, 2010 10:31 pm ET

@ Carol Beck.

Shame on you.

Do not blame the wife, for the sins of her husband.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:32 pm ET

@Chris

Are you forgetting the First Amendment is a two-sided coin...Which side came up tails for you?????..


jack   May 11th, 2010 10:35 pm ET

Will she be promoting her book on the Colbert Report?


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 10:36 pm ET

@ jack

Maybe we could ex-change him for some of the billions his administration removed from the American Taxpayers.


jack   May 11th, 2010 10:41 pm ET

@Cajazz76:24:8...He was the best unelected President in the history of our great nation. Where was all that worry about states rights when they snatched the decision from Florida, and crowned him the corporate king?


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 10:42 pm ET

Carol beck

Ah, you must have your eyes in the back of your head covered by your hair, since you have this scenario backwards with no clarity.


jack   May 11th, 2010 10:44 pm ET

@Dodie...Wonder what happened to that huge missing bundle of cash that was dropped in Iraq? Just wondering. One of the big mysteries from those terrible eight long years.


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 10:49 pm ET

@jack
I thought if Canada was gullible enough, we might ex-'change' Bush for a large picket full of gold coin! Maybe that is only a 'pipe' dream!


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:51 pm ET

@Dodie

How can one exchange zero to get gross negatives below zero and profit? We are all at an extensive loss because of the Cheney-Bush zero's. Wonder if @Chris can cipher that? I give him a clue..'double negatives'...add the Tea Bags for buoyancy...dry them first...


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 10:54 pm ET

@All

Ah yes, the sweet smell of the First Amendment...@Jack @Dodie..a real sugar high! Better than the sour grapes @Chris is chewing on...


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 10:57 pm ET

Cajazz76:24:8
Even if the tea bags were dried, they would still sink under the 'load' ..... of wooden crosses strapped to their necks. Try again...


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:00 pm ET

Cajazz76:24:8

Anything like the scent of a kum-quat tree leafed in cynicism?


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:04 pm ET

@Dodie

Nothing floats forever, especially wrinkled views of the shriveled and stingy persona's..on the tight side...Are pants worn as high-waters considered conservative outerwear? Just asking.


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:09 pm ET

@Dodie...Or , in your neck of the woods, an avocado tree arrayed in andipose.


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:09 pm ET

Cajazz76:24:8
I suppose their wet pants will give way to a wrinkled persona!


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:13 pm ET

@Dodie...Palinesque high wading boots are very chic with the conservative set.


Diana from Ontario,Canada   May 11th, 2010 11:13 pm ET

I enjoyed your interview so much tonight Laura. I have been in full support of your husband while he was President, and that is including all of his decisions. You and George are a couple of the highest integrity and I will always look up to you both for your strength in the times of trouble while he was President. I will continue to defend George when people criticize his decisions regarding Iraq and so forth. Laura I think you are a woman of grace and I wish you happiness for your future and success with your new book. I will purchase it as soon as I can get to Chapters. George, in my mind I will never forget your strength and protectiveness for the USA in the years of your Presidency. My husband and I respect you highly and I will definitely be the first in line when your book becomes on sale.
I wish you happiness and success with your new book too. May God bless you and protect you for all you have done for the American people during your Presidency and I wish you happiness in your future.

note: Laura – You are a very lovely woman and it is my opinion (please excuse me for my suggestion) I wish you could wear lighter shade lipsticks rather than the dark red that you always wear. A shade softer I think would compliment you. I am surprised that your daughters have not informed you of this.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:15 pm ET

@jack

Sounds like that avacado would be a bit fishy...


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:17 pm ET

@ Jack
drenched in bikinis by the surf, adipose is a true 'taster's delight


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:18 pm ET

@Diana from Ontario,Canada...Highest integrity? You really must have been in Canada.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:19 pm ET

Are those Canadians undercover agents trying to bring this country to its knees or is their translation a bit mixed with something in the water? Why are they kissing a frog?


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:21 pm ET

@Dodie...A sumptuous dish of Rubenesque delights!


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:25 pm ET

Diana in Ontario, Canada

Laura wears the deep red lipstick because after all the years of biting it while listening to your "Georgie Boy" it has left a stigmata that bleeds whenever he open his mouth..


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:26 pm ET

@Cajazz76:24:8..I guess is it is easier to fantasize from a distance. Whatever they're drinking, I'll have one. No, wait, I don't want to get intoxicated on ignorance.


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:27 pm ET

jack
If you are so inclined to enjoy large figur-ines


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:27 pm ET

@Diana noticed I said "in Ontario" and not "from"...please say you're in Canada..".from" makes me think you're closer than I wish.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:31 pm ET

@jack

They make tons of Chlorine there, can't they solve their water pollution problems? I know it all flows south...


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:33 pm ET

@Dodie

Do you know horny toads are extinct in Texas? Who the heck those Canadians think their kissing or what?


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:34 pm ET

Canada has been dishing out rose colored glasses when looking south


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:35 pm ET

@Dodie...Not huge, just so. Amply appealing but not gorgeously gargantuan.


Admiration to Mr. & Mrs. George Bush from Ontario,Canada   May 11th, 2010 11:38 pm ET

My husband and I believe that President Bush was one of the best Presidents. My husband believes that he will go down in history as one of the best presidents that the USA has ever had. We both felt safe and that the American people were very safe with him and that includes Canada as well. Every decision he made was in the name of rightousness. You are a wonderful First Lady Laura and a beautiful wife to George and we love you both. Thank you for your service and protection to America, and to those people you protected from harm in other countries where you acted on their behalf in your decisions, striving to make this a better world. God bless you both.


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:39 pm ET

Cajazz76:24:8
Canadians' intoxication may be the answer to californication? It looks as though Texas would be out in the cold!


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:41 pm ET

@Cajazz76:24:8...Maybe the Canadian cadre would enjoy a swim off the Louisiana drink where her hero's enchanted waters flow with generous red crude. They could swim with the dying fish, and say "heck of a job" big oil deregulators. We just love you up here in our pristine hidey holes.


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:43 pm ET

@Dodie ...That sounds better than Texas crude.


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:43 pm ET

Jack
volup-tuous is preferable to volup-theeous?


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:46 pm ET

Canadians, better be careful, or you might get what you wish for. Some things are best enjoyed at a distance. Trust me.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:50 pm ET

@Dodie
@jack

It must be an isolated environment found in Ontario. They are all high are on Bush, imagine that. I just might take a trip up there to smell the water and see if it is a bit fishy. Don't worry, tasting it is out of the question given the comments they're making..


Dodie   May 11th, 2010 11:50 pm ET

jack
You sound like a man of experience...like to share the concept of distance?


jack   May 11th, 2010 11:53 pm ET

Admiration to Mr. & Mrs. George Bush from Ontario,Canada...Maybe in one of those revised Texas history books, otherwise I doubt it.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 11th, 2010 11:58 pm ET

2jack

They aren't revised..they stand alone on the library shelves. The kids google all their knowledge.


Dodie   May 12th, 2010 12:03 am ET

You might like to check the hemp they use rope with their ships? It might have a dis'tinct odor!

They will find the commendation beside the picture of the man riding a dinasour.


Dodie   May 12th, 2010 12:05 am ET

A chick in the hand is worth two in the bush. Thank you Laura and GW.


jack   May 12th, 2010 12:09 am ET

@Dodie...Or don't count your bushes before they hatch.


Cajazz76:24:8   May 12th, 2010 12:09 am ET

@jack

On the way to Alaska, ride em DINO!!


Dodie   May 12th, 2010 12:11 am ET

@ jack

I would suggest don't count your bushes before they flower


jack   May 12th, 2010 12:16 am ET

@Cajazz76:24:8...Toward the Palinesque burlesque, where she can see Canada from her back porch.


New Yorker   May 12th, 2010 12:33 am ET

For all the negative Bush commentors in this blog, why don't you purchase both Laura's book and George's book, and learn the real down to earth truths? Reading their true personal accounts will be the best learning experience you will ever have; you will gain valuable knowledge and see for yourself all that happened and why. It is only right to place yourself in another person's shoes before you condemn him or her....


john   May 12th, 2010 12:33 am ET

Mrs. Bush. what do you say to the millions or orphans and widows left by the war that your husband cause in Iraq?


john   May 12th, 2010 12:36 am ET

have you ever tried to stop your husband from causing the death of innocent amercan soldiers and thhe innocent iraqi children left orphans. women beging in the streets for food because they dont have no bread winners?


Holly   May 12th, 2010 12:42 am ET

Dear Mrs. Bush,
You are the supreme example of a true lady.
You handled your "job" as first lady with grace and diplomacy.
Thank you🙂


Holly   May 12th, 2010 12:50 am ET

While reading all the comments about Iraq, it occurred to me that the critics apparently did not grow up with the Vietnam War as I did. You think Iraq is the biggest folly? Vietnam was going on during my entire childhood. That was a lot of years...
You guys slam the Prez for making the choice to go to war but it was Congress and Senate who made the decision. The citizens of this country has forgotten, the Prez. is a servant to us all and the buck stops at him. If you want to whine and complain, talk to your Senators and Congressmen.......they are the villains. The Prez is not the king of America (and let's hope it stays that way).


Stacie Myers   May 12th, 2010 12:59 am ET

Mrs. Bush, I am a evangelical Christian, how do you keep sep church and state?


Lynette DuFrene   May 12th, 2010 3:38 am ET

So sad that i just feel that she really can't speak her mind, very methodical. And such a disappointment to see that she has definitely had surgery on her face. Sorry that she lacks the confidance of Barbara. Barbara is such a gal. What you see is what you get. go Barbara!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Elaine   May 12th, 2010 4:27 am ET

I really enjoyed tonight's Larry King interview with Laura Bush. She is gracious, knows her own mind and can disagree without being disagreeable. These are qualities that are sorely missing in Washington today and it will be great if and when civility can one day return to America's political discourse.


Adedara Ogunleye   May 12th, 2010 6:23 am ET

Hello larry, pls kindly tell laura that she should be speechless because crimes committed by his family is more than to be spoken.


Jose Pulido   May 12th, 2010 6:48 am ET

Childhood accident? She was 17 when she killed the other driver. That's a teenager killing and it is called manslaugher. Nevertheless, she makes it sound that it was the other driver's fault when she ran a stop sign and killed him.
It is typical of the Bushes never to admit anything wrong thay have done in their life. She evades the facts and downplays the killing and switches blame to the victim just like her husband did for eight year as a selected president. She was probably coached by Karl Rove on what to say to Mr. Larry King. But she will carry for the rest of her life the fact that she killed an innocent person.

Funny how some have selective memories Larry.

Bush will go down as the worse Presidents in History.

Of course I'm sure certain issues were off the table with Larry asking Laura certain questions because she was there to talk about her book not issues of Bush/Cheney.

She made a stupid mistake as a teenager just like Kennedy did as a married man causing someone's death.

As we keep hearing Bush made us safe and Cheney and his gang keeps throwing that up to us in America bottom line is if they made us so safe 911 wouldn't have happen.The shoe bomber wouldn't have happen 3 months after 911 and other terrible incidents following years between till he left office.

I really wonder how she feels knowing that when Obama became President her party would throw everything Bush did saying it's now President's Obama's fault.
Cheney has made 34 million dollars off of Halliburton 'after' he became VP and I wonder how much Bush made.

Laura stated Bush stayed away from the bottle.Because she said it,it makes it true?

Before Bush left office,jobs were being loss,homes,health care,gas went over the top with truckers having their rigs pull over on the side of the road.Where was Bush??They had no TVs??
The only time he came out to talk to us Americans was when he wanted to bail out Wall Street before he left office because he and Laura bought a home.
John McCain kept on saying Obama should do like him,stop the campaign and go to DC to vote to bail it out,that's all we heard.Obama had no choice but to do so.

Time for the American people to wise up and stop listening to some on the right who tries to turn it around that it was great with Bush and Obama is terrible.President Obama walked into a mess and he is the better one trying to clean it up.
Cheney,his kid and others should keep their mouths shut because the Bush/Cheney days were the worse for America.

What did you have before you wrote this blog, it sure beats LSD or any other drug.
George Jr. may be the best president if you start counting at the bottom.

As far as being safe, just ask those iraqis and our soldiers who were forced to invade that country, how safe they were and still are today?

You are correct, the First Amendment guarantees everyone a free speech, however it does not guarantee that what you say is bright or stupid or it must be accepted by the others.

We have just the same right to voice our opinion and oppose your views.

Way to go Laura.

@Cajazz

Talking about lipstick, I think Laura Bush is wearing the color Cherry Jubilee.
I don't like her smugness when she said "divoce is not in our DNA."
I thought only your genes show up in your DNA, and not whether you are divorced or happily married.
Could the husband's ignorance seeped into her?


Jeff   May 12th, 2010 10:02 am ET

Just a few comments:

1. An accident is by it's very nature, is an accident; but, by not paying attention to your driving and running a stop sign, it is at least [legally]involuntary manslaughter; punishable by 5 to 7 years in prison. Why was she not arrested and prosecuted like everyone else in America would be? Was there a montary settlement to his parents? Did Laura and her parents offer to pay for the funeral at least, or did they simply add insult to injury by letting the the parents pay for that too?

2. I hate it when I hear things like she said in the Larry King interview;
Larry: Did you go visit the boys parents afterwards? Laura: No, I just
put it out of my mind ... I never talked about it" ... how 'chillingly'
convenient; especially when she said she knew it devastated his parents. Then follows that statement by saying, "That was just west
Texas in 1963, we just kept quiet about it." Really? Since when has owning up to something like that been something you just put out of
your mind, in Texas or anywhere else? I would have immediately gone to apologize to them in that situation, especially since the families knew each other as she claimed. Hey, I have an idea; how
about stopping the book tour Laura, and going to his parents or his family [siblings] 'today' and apologizing if they are still alive? How about donating the book monies to them in memorium? Besides, it isn't 1963 anymore, and you don't live in west Texas anymore ... that would do more for them (and you) than you think. Talking about it and doing nothing, is not 'cleansing' at all ... owning up to it, and making restitution, is.

3. Finally, in previous Laura interviews, she claims that she never had a 'relationship' with God "before that night" ... then got angry at God
because He [God] supposedly "didn't answer her prayer" to let the boy live. Lets disect that a bit:

A. If you 'choose' not to have a relationship with God beforehand, why would any intelligent person bother praying to Him for help after the fact? If you don't care for God, leave Him alone ... He isn't a 'cosmic grandpa' Laura. He doesn't sit in Heaven waiting to answer prayers for people that don't respect and care about Him; or bother to have a relationship with Him. Believe in Him, and I guarentee He'll answer
your prayers; avoid Him, and He owes you nothing.

He says, "Come closer to Me, and I'll come closer to you." So, the opposite is true as well. For example: If I don't pay attention to my
wife ... "ever" ... or try to have a relationship of any kind with her – then
I have a serious issue arise ... should I get angry with her if she
doesn't come to my rescue? Should I also lose all faith in her? No,
it's my fault ... not hers.

B. The she says that she lost all her faith in God because He didn't
answer her prayer that night. Laura, "you can't lose what you never had." You didn't have faith before, and you didn't lose it afterwards; True faith [in the God of the Bible] isn't something you turn on and off at will ... True Faith is something you walk in, whether you see the immediate results or not. True Believers "walk by faith, not by sight."

Laura, you 'chose' to not seek the forgiveness of the boys parents for your error; you 'chose' to not own up to it afterwards; and you 'chose' to eliminate God from the equation when He could have used that very
incident to bring healing to the boys parents ... and you as well.

Please, stop saying you're 'slowly' gaining your faith back ... what
faith? You must mean your 'religion' ... and 'relgion' has nothing to do
with faith!

You're simply talking up your book ... you haven't mentioned anything
about any type of restitution today, or since that night. I haven't even heard you once say, "I am so sorry that I killed that young boy" – "I am so sorry I never sought to contact his parents and apologize for what
I did, and put them through." – or even, "God, I am especially sorry I turned away from You, and blamed You all these years for something You didn't even do ... I did."

In today's venacular, "Man-up Laura; stop playing the victim, some else was."

DARK ANGEL   May 12th, 2010 10:24 am ET

How come Larry boy didn't ask Laura Bush if she had been drinking that night? She was quick to admit she ran the stop sign but went no further.She is talking about the very long past,how about talking about the recent past.I believe people would be much more interested in that.
DARK ANGEL


DARK ANGEL   May 12th, 2010 10:45 am ET

The car came out of nowhere really !!! Typical Bush just like her husband.Laura admits she blew the stop sign but blames the dead guy for doing absolutely nothing wrong (coming out of nowhere).She was the one that was coming out of nowhere.Rich and Famous are never wrong it's everyone else's fault but theirs.

Chris   May 12th, 2010 11:26 am ET

@Judith
It is so ridiculous for a couple of you to compare the accident Kennedy was in with the one Laura Bush was in. Laura Bush accidentally ran a stop sign and the outcome was horrific. Ted Kennedy was a married man, running around with a nice young lady, ended up in the water and basically left her there to drown and I seem to recall that he remained silent for a while about the incident. I am sure that it was a lot for him to deal with over the years, but:
You really make yourself look very ignorant to compare the two.


IKHAN   May 12th, 2010 11:29 am ET

@Diana from Ontario

Somehow I had the feeling that perhaps Canadians had a better perspective of what goes on here.
Well this writer proved it all wrong. I just feel sorry for those in Canada who had a long hibernation while the world went by.
The Iraq disaster, the scams that went with it, the profiteering, the loss of American lives in thousands, thousands maimed & scarred for life, tens of thousands of civilian deaths & a loss of a trillion dollar & counting. A country destroyed & turned into hot bed of perpetual violence, breeding ground for terrorism which was not the case before we invaded them.
Committing another folly of not focusing on Afghanistan at the time & leaving us with the mess that we are in there too. Civilians being killed along with the militants getting us deeper into the morass. Hatred brewing in a region which is vital for American economic & geo-political interests more than any other place.
Bush-Cheney agenda of a demonic mix of ideology & greed fueled by constant kicks in their backs by our close ally landed us into a nightmarish scenario which just doesn't seem to have an exit.
Yeah sure @ Diana & others we had a jolly good ride during those years that were.


Chris   May 12th, 2010 11:34 am ET

@Ted,
Why don't you voice your opinion again. I saw your comments suggesting that 90% of Wall Street was run by Jews and 80% of those in trouble are Jews. Your post didn't stay up long of course. So please express that again. And then you made the comment that you hope the new Supreme Court justice does not lean favorably toward Israel. A little obvious there I would say. Keep that First Amendment going because we would like to know what other ethnic groups you despise.

You said if you did what GS did you would serve time. I am quite surprised that given developing situations of the last week for those watching our money such as you, that you would be worrying about how much someone does or does not hate the Bush family. Do your clients whose money you are managing know how you spend your time during a financial crisis?

Just to be clear, everyone has the right to the First Amendment but does that mean you need to degrade anyone who has an opinion different than yours. But if you need to attack, go for it; perhaps your momma will be proud of what she raised.


edith Vancouver Canada   May 12th, 2010 11:36 am ET

Laura is a gracious lady. Judging by all the comments we do not have many gracious people left in America. I cannot believe how rude people have become in the last 20 years. I admire the former first lady. A women of courage and a great example to all other women. She has true class, a word as it pertains to social behavior is loosing its meaning.


IKHAN   May 12th, 2010 1:27 pm ET

@Chris

I do not think that @ Ted's comments had anything to do with bias against any ethnic group what the post stated was facts. There is no disputing the fact that the financial & media spheres are mostly controlled by the Jews in USA.
There are many Jews in this country & Jewish organizations doing admirable & courageous work against great odds. We just do not get to see or hear them , thanks to lobbies & special interest.
I repeat myself:
Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), respected writers & intellectuals like Uri Avnery,Adam Horowitz,Philip Weiss, M.J.Rosenberg & religious leaders like Rbbi Brent Rose. I'm sure you never heard of them.
As I'm sure most here do not know about the 'Coalition of Women for Peace' in Israel & other peace groups. You would never find their names mentioned on shows like Oprah or the View or other talk shows.
I quite agree with @Ted in apprehensions about Kagan favoring the state of Israel un-ethically. Her credentials are tops but we have yet to see her leanings on such issues.

@New Yorker...didn't know the RIGHT-WING had such YOYO's...

Buy a book? Are you joking? Not many New Yorker's have that great of a sense of humor...Who could in a concrete jungle of confusion?

I don't have to read his (Bush's) accounts of history because I saw it on the televisions and in the newspapers and on-line for eight years, in the VA Hospitals, and sadly, in a morgue and on the grounds of a National Cemetary.

Do I have to mention over 1,000,000 Iraqi casualties on top of what is still being assessed in Afghanistan?

It still isn't ALL in print yet. The affects and effects are still being felt and garnered worldwide. George W. Bush was a FAILURE using failed ideologies, failed information, failed in his use of military force, failed in his oversight of the banking and SEC...enough! the list is too long..Since you're an avid reader and an ardent fan here's a few things you can mull over and the YOU come back and tell ME how much I can learn from his BIASED book. You're an IDIOT entwined in ignorance flying on the wings of ineptitude..

Hey, New Yorker read and evaluate what Kelly Kramer amassed..you will NOT find them in a Bush self-gratified and BIASED account..of a FAILURE ....Ranked 36th out of 42 former presidents performances Sure buy his book if you like fairy tales...

While reading all the comments about Iraq, it occurred to me that the critics apparently did not grow up with the Vietnam War as I did. You think Iraq is the biggest folly? Vietnam was going on during my entire childhood. That was a lot of years...
You guys slam the Prez for making the choice to go to war but it was Congress and Senate who made the decision. The citizens of this country has forgotten, the Prez. is a servant to us all and the buck stops at him. If you want to whine and complain, talk to your Senators and Congressmen.......they are the villains. The Prez is not the king of America (and let's hope it stays that way).
-------------------------------–Maybe,, the likely chance being slim, that a few who comment on the eight-year failed debacle of the Cheney-Bush years also shared your experience "as a child" growing up in the era of Viet Nam. Maybe, a few even had the opportunity of an all-expense paid opportunity to go there. Maybe, one or two may even be benefiting by the disdainful effects of it. Maybe, one or two have been to the Middle East before the Bush orchestrated war of futility. Maybe, some still have American- born children there. Maybe, some even had children injured or killed there. Maybe, some of them who were sent there are online expressing their opinions. Maybe, those who may have formed opinions of the FAILED Bush presidency have a reason to express themselves freely. That is one freedom Cheney-Bush did not have support from their Republican majority in both House and Senate to repeal or erode. Maybe...!!!!!!

The President of the United States(POTUS) is the head of state and head of government of the United States. The president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is one of only two nationally elected federal officers, the other being the Vice President of the United States. I think former President George W. Bush got the POTUS mixed with COITUS...and we all were screwed.

@ Chris

Thank you for your attack, those who have a lot of enemies are important people, says an old chinese proverb. Or was it old jewish?

You are very, very wrong in your assumption that I despise jews, I always had and have jewish friends. I am also aware of the facts that without the jews we would have a much poorer world, as they are very talented in physics, art, music. among other things.
The Bible, as a record of hebrew history teaches us a lot and the 10 commendments are a good base for any laws in a modern world.
My brother married a half jewish woman and I had jewish girlfriend when I was young. (Greetings to Savannah, GA).

I love the italian people, their culture, language, food and women.
However I hate their Mafia and Cosa Nostra, two vicious organisations sucking the blood of decent people.
When I rage about the Mafia, nobody accuses me of being anti-italian.
However, if anyone mentions the wrong doings of the jewish mafia, suddenly you are an anti-semite.
As matter of fact, in the USA you can insult God, but do not say anything negative about jewish crimes, because you will be crucified!

During 1962-1964 I was stationed in Germany and we did a survey with polish refugees working for us on why did Poles cooperated with the nazis and turned jews over to them. There is not enough space here for a full report, however you would not like it!
Basicly the same story as we have in the USA today, they controlled the land!!

Shlomo Sand, an israeli author wrote that there is no such thing as a jewish nation, it is a lie used to give the state of Israel ligitimacy.
Jews are made up from hundreds of converted nationalities and groups, the real hebrews compromise less than 10% of the population.
It is the same as all catholics of this world take over Italy and claim it as their land promised by God.

Shlomo Sand is an israeli jew, would you have his book removed from the libraries, just because he tells the truth and you don´t want to hear it?

Ted   May 13th, 2010 9:36 am ET

@ Chris

If you believe in the First Amendment that guarantees free speech, why did you have several of my blogs removed by LKL??
Just one of them was written about jews and its language and content was correct and true.


IKHAN   May 13th, 2010 12:41 pm ET

@Ted, @Cajazz,@Dodie

great posts guys.

We need to be awash in the truth & facts instead of propaganda. About time to if we want some good to be done to this country & for this great nation.


IKHAN   May 13th, 2010 2:14 pm ET

@Cajazz

very enlightening piece esp in the context of Vietnam war.
You are right in pointing out the irrelevance of that war to the generation of today.
This the very reason that this generation focuses only on the Iraq disaster & blames the Bush-Cheney leadership as these two stand out as symbols of that folly.
I whine about the Iraq war too as in my opinion this insanity on our part has a much larger dimension in its consequences & ramifications for us & globally than the Vietnam war.
There too our soldiers went thru ordeals only a veteran could recount & witnessed horrors of death & destruction. There too one reads about the post traumatic stress & disorders our brave soldiers are enduring to this day. There too were devilish aberrations like the hamlets of My Lai & My Khe & there too we read of courage of a Hugh Thompson standing up to his own men. There too we read of horrors of napalm & mustard gas.
Iraq invasion too produced bravery & courage unlimited on the part of our soldiers, here too we witness post traumatic disorders & here too we have devilish aberrations like Abu Gharaib.Here too we read of cluster bombs & nuclear tipped armor piercing shells.

But Iraq debacle impacts this nation in a manner no other warfare hitherto has done in its far reaching consequences for Americans alone. We have unwisely created a nightmarish scenario where no wisely place exit is available. I don't have to explain this to all you learned folks, it is obvious to all except those who would rather keep their eyes & minds closed.


Ted   May 14th, 2010 7:50 am ET

Correct, we must bring the truth into the light, because certain interested groups want to hide it in the darkest corner of our memory.

Thank you for bringing on former First Lady Laura Bush.

Please discuss the divisiness of the Bush Admininstration.
If you are not with us, you're against us. The attitude of that administration was anti-american. It closely resembles the intolerance of the far right, and noted domestic terrorist.

I would like to understand better, where did Laura Bush stand with all of this.


Rosada   May 16th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Dear First Lady Bush, you are very intelligent, and a woman with very warm heart. It's these two components in your character that allow you to voice such sincere opinions on the social issues you commented on Larry King's show. I wish you had run for president. After seeing you on Larry King's show, I want to get your book and read more about you.

Laura Bush is indeed a fine lady.
But the world had eough of two Bushes as president to last us a life-time.


william   May 16th, 2010 11:50 pm ET

Kitty Kelly's book, "The Bush Dynasty" says that "Mrs. Bush was smoking & talking & speeding when she drove thru the stop sign"...when she first met w/the Bush family she said, "I read & I smoke"....her lipstick is so dark..shows her dark teeth from smoking....looks like they both were drinkers of alcohol way bk when ...


sammy   May 17th, 2010 12:01 am ET

I blame the American people who voted for GWBush twice..this country would have been in better shape had Al Gore won..perhaps it was God's will that Kerry EDWARDS did not win..Kerry is tops..down w/Edwards..he's a goner, he's toast..he went to Haiti..could not handle it & flew bacj,,scoundrel ///w/all his money he could have stayed there & helped...

Jeri   May 17th, 2010 12:26 am ET

I just want to say, as a Gay Democrat, I have been SO IMPRESSED with Laura Bush. I saw her on Oprah and still had some questions. After seeing this tonite, it confirmed, Laura is a GOOD WOMAN.. She respects ALL people. I never thought I would EVER SAY that due to her husband and what he stood for "then." Isn't this whay WE SHOULD ALL DO, just love each other............ regardless of beliefs...... I think Laura is a GREAT WOMAN..... I wish I could have heard that "then" instead of now......................

Indeed so true. Hope Jeb will not have a go.


Sheila   May 17th, 2010 1:42 am ET

Laura Bush is indeed graceful and seems to know all the right things to say. This polished southern belle could almost make you forget the miserable state her husband left the country in. This is just a white wash attempt to gloss over Bush's legacy...saved by the belle!


Smith in Oregon   May 17th, 2010 2:53 am ET

The CIA and spy masters in the Bush Family likely have a unspoken policy, never marry a woman who is honest about their 'nefarious family values' and never marry a woman that is outspoken or condescending. I suspect anything that Laura Bush speaks of in public has been patiently practiced, sanitized and is likely steeped in a veil of fiction.


Tony from covina   May 17th, 2010 3:31 am ET

Hi laura, I wanted to know how you and your daughters dealt and continue to deal with all the negative comments("war criminal" or "worst president ever" etc) directed at your husband. It must be difficlt.


Earle Richmond   May 17th, 2010 3:45 am ET

Laura Bush's book may be heart felt; however, she was married to a 'war criminal'. I wonder how she could justify the death of thousands of Americans not to mention Millions of innocent individuals from Iraq and Afghanistan? Killing is still killing no matter how you slice it. Laura, please tell me, how does one live with that?

Marry   May 17th, 2010 6:26 am ET

…she cannot and will not learn! It is all about the easy way out, THEIR emotions, about how THEY feel and how she and George get out of their responsibilities! They are just rich, spoiled, shallow people that had always everything coming to them. No concern for normal people. The tens of thousands of dead and destroyed lives around the world (not just that of our solders) and the enormity of these bad decisions have never hit her or any others in the GOP! And all this due to the lack of honesty, intelligence, real willingness to work that speaks out of Laura Bush just as it was seen in George (just leave it to Dick…). Perhaps they should have listened to some of the critic that was very justified instead of being offended by it! If they would have thought only half as much about the “people” as they did about their “many” (rich) friends (that they made richer every day they were in office), things may have been a little different. But, Laura and George just did not want to know any better. So, as still today typically GOP, they became what they wanted to be: The best White House and administration MONEY could buy.


Ted   May 17th, 2010 8:04 am ET

@ Jeri

As a heterosexual Independent liberal I ask you: do you know the meaning of the word hypocritical?
Laura was there when her husband commited all those crimes and no amount of sweet talking will wash her clean. One can be guilty by association, according the law.
Apropos, why did she not go to jail after killing a person in a car accident? Was she drunk at the time?


Mary Romeo   May 17th, 2010 12:43 pm ET

Question for Mrs. Bush:

For whom did you vote, McCain or Obama?

(Don't know if she'll answer, but my very Republican female friend voted Democrat for the first time in 20 years - for Obama. She admired his intelligence, though (correctly, as it turned out) that he was a moderate on most issues, and was turned off by Palin, whom she believed was unqualified to be VP, let alone President.)


IKHAN   May 17th, 2010 1:16 pm ET

@Salma
an eye opener for us Americans. Thanks for posting it.

The irony is that those responsible for perpetrating this crime, the Iraq fiasco & causing thousands of Americans to die besides tens of thousands of civilians who never harmed America, still go smugly around yapping and posing in public.

A news item today which would go unnoticed thanks to our mainstream media. Chew on this folks:
Naom Chomsky the respected Jewish-American professor & writer was stopped at the borders of Israel by authorities & barred from entering. Why? Because he dares to speak out against their policies & wants to tell the truth to Israelis & Americans about what really is going on in the occupied territories.
He was supposed to deliver a lecture at a university.
Well so much for touting democracy & freedom of speech.


C Fisher   May 17th, 2010 2:33 pm ET

I was wondering since Laura Buch ran a stop sign and killed someone, was she charged with vehicular man slaughter or was her family so rich and influential that it wasn't a possibility. Also given the Bush family history, could she have been drunk?


rickinmo   May 17th, 2010 2:57 pm ET

I understand why Luara Bush did not take a stand on the rights of gay marriage and abortion rights during her time as First Lady but, the country would have been better off if she had. The Bush presidency was certainly the most divisive in my lifetime. The pandering to the christian right did a great deal of damage to our country and our reputation abroad.

The republican party professes to support individual liberty but, only as long as you agree with them. I am not gay and find the notion of having a sexual relationship with another man repulsive but, no one is telling me that I should or is forcing me to engage in that type of activity. I do, however, believe that gays have the right to share their lives with someone they care for and someone who cares for them in a legally sanctioned manner. Likewise, no one is forcing women to have abortions.

Leave the gays alone and spend the time working on the issues that effect all Americans-jobs, the economy, the environment, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, etc.

Stop dividing people by pandering to groups who want their beliefs forced on others. Too many good pieces of legislation have been hijacked by the gay marriage and abortion issues. Protect the rights of all Americans and stop playing politics with these divisive issues that have nothing to do with running our government.


CindyM   May 17th, 2010 4:20 pm ET

@Ted,
No, she was not drunk at the time. That was a rumor that simply was not true. Why judge a person's life by one tragic accident? How many people go to jail because someone was accidentally killed in an auto accident. Your hatred goes to extremes.


Rose   May 17th, 2010 4:42 pm ET

@ "Admiration to Mr. & Mrs. George Bush from Ontario, Canada"

If you are actually from Canada (and sober), read the following:

Canada sent soldiers into Bush's war in Afghanistan for apparently "just" reasons (NATO etc). Canada was always famous as an international peacekeeper but broke from this. Over 50% of Canadians now oppose their troops being in Afghanistan. Your "admiration" of Bush should be questioned, as it has led to many young Canadian lives being tragically lost for no true gain. Afghanistan is even a more dangerous place than before.

A growing number of Canadians believe either that the war is a tragic waste of life and money or that it's not one that intruders in Afghanistan can win. Canadian intelligence officer and ex-Diplomat Richard Colvin first started red-flagging for Canada's Parliament “serious, imminent and alarming” problems with the treatment of Afghan detainees in May 2006. i.e. Torture.

In a damning indictment of how Canadian soldiers handled prisoners early in its Afghan mission, Colvin stated all captives that Canadian soldiers transferred to local authorities ended up being severely tortured – even though many were likely innocent Afghans. Canadian PM Harper rejects inquiry into this matter. Canada's involvement has heightened its risk for terrorism since the war. Nothing to be too proud of – GW Bush's war mongering re: Canada.


Rose   May 17th, 2010 5:23 pm ET

@ Ikhan

You're right. Prof. Noam Chomsky was denied entry into Israel and the West Bank. They did not like the fact that he was due to lecture at a Palestinian university. Chomsky has criticised many countries re: their unjust policies. This ban is making headlines everyone.

Israel's Haaretz reports: "The Association for Civil Rights in Israel slammed the Interior Ministry for "using detention and deportation to prevent a man (Chomsky) from expressing his opinion", calling it "characteristic of a totalitarian regime." The ACRI further stated: "A democratic country where freedom of expression is a guiding principle does not close in the face of criticism or ideas that are not comfortable. . ." Chomsky is a Jew, an academic – is one of the world's foremost intellectuals.

Right wing member of Israel's parliament Otniel Schneller praised this ban stating Chomsky should try one of the tunnels connecting Gaza and Egypt. So much for free discourse in a democracy.


Rose   May 17th, 2010 5:45 pm ET

@ Ted

You are right on with your response to Jeri. Laura Bush benefitted greatly from the Bush family's war profiteering and more. She participated in supporting Bush throughout his reckless Administration. Now after all the damage is done, she is a so-called "private citizen" and wants to "speak up". How convenient.

Per Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: "The ultimate measure of a person is not where s/he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy".

By this measure, Laura Bush has failed miserably. Let's get over this rotten slice of American Pie with worms.

@Cindy M

Ted is not judging Laura Bush by "one incident" re: car accident. Her silent support of her husband's crimes far outweigh her accident. GW Bush and his policies are responsible for the deaths of hundred of thousands of civilians and the displacement of millions of internal refugees in Iraq. Mrs. Bush stated he and his Administation all "meant well". Now that is criminal.


IKHAN   May 17th, 2010 10:17 pm ET

@ Rose
thanks for this added info. Hope this gives fellow bloggers a point to ponder.
What is disturbing is that we do not hear of an incident like this on our mainstream media.
We are constantly reminded by propaganda machines of what a great democratic sate Israel is. Whereas the good upstanding Jews there & in America are constantly struggling to be heard over this cacophony. For example the 'Coalition of Women for Peace' in Israel & other groups. They are driven by patriotism & love for their country where they see policies which are blatantly apartheid & do not serve either Israel or USA.
You would however not hear even a squeak from those in this country who are always the loudest in touting free speech & democracy & such.


CindyM   May 17th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

@Rose,
If you read Ted's blog, he suggested she go to prison. How absurd. And then a couple of people compared this innocent accident to the accident Ted Kennedy was involved in. I don't understand the hatred you and a few others have. It appears ubiquitous on LKL. We cannot change the mistakes of the past; however, if we think the current administration makes no mistakes then we have learned nothing from the past.


Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   May 17th, 2010 11:20 pm ET

@Ted

The important thing is has the family forgiven Laura Bush?
If not, she will be haunted by the guilt for the rest of her life.


Nana Brown   May 17th, 2010 11:22 pm ET

Mrs Frankenstein has been enjoying very bit of her husband evil empire. When will the tax payers wake up? Our economy is ruined by this family that lied to to our service men and women. Who is responsible for the millions of innocent victims in Iraq, Afghanistan and the world? No God forgives any evil done to mankind . How can the Mrs Frankenstein sleep at night ? You can build the biggest Church's, buy all the Priest in town but you can not buy your self forgiveness from the innocent dead. The nightmares and horrors live on for seven generations. Wake up! wake up ! and see the ugliness. Remove that mask you hide behind and go to the homes of each victims family our media does not let us see. Talk to the parents of the beautiful young men and women who were killed. Talk to the wives and husbands and feel there pain and loneliness. Talk to the children who will never have a mom or a dad and feel there emptiness,fear and pain. Bring all the US victims family in to your studio Larry King.
Please, please don't let the innocent die in vain. Please give there families a voice. Don't let evil win!


Sheila   May 17th, 2010 11:43 pm ET

For those that bring up Ted Kenedy's accident to somehow minimze Laura Bush's, may I remind you that even now, two wrongs STILL does not make a right !


Smith in Oregon   May 18th, 2010 3:19 am ET

By shunning evil people and evil leaders you starve them from what they seek the most, your fear and power over you.


Ted   May 18th, 2010 8:54 am ET

@ CindyM

I was just as upset that Ted Kennedy was not indicted for leaving an accident with fatal results, although I worked for John Kennedy in Boston during his presidential campaign and met Teddy in person.
There should be no examption from crime regardless who you are.
However, he reembursed our nation with his hard work for the workers, passing laws to improve their lot.
I doubt very seriously that Laura and George ever want or can make up all the damage they caused this nation, even if they live to be 200 years old!

As far as the Bush family goes, no amount of soap and detergent applied will get the dirt off.
On the other hand, there are people who just loved Hitler, Stalin and similar bloody dictators. We all have different views and tastes.


Ted   May 18th, 2010 8:57 am ET

@ Rose

As always, I admire your precise presentation of facts.


Ted   May 18th, 2010 9:06 am ET

A great percentage of israelis are ashamed of their government, however they have no opportunity to change the system, because no goverment can be formed without the ultra conservative and the religious parties.
Those are the villains who wants to drive all arabs out the land and form a great Israel that never existed!!
Even at the height of old Israel it was not bigger than RI is and was as important as that state is in our nation.


Rose   May 18th, 2010 10:53 am ET

@ Cindy M

You summarize my responses as "hatred". I call it a reality check. Let's say I'm not exactly in love with people who support crimes against others on the planet. Administrations make mistakes however the Bush government went far beyond the realm of "mistakes" and into war for very wrong reasons. They willfully lied to the American people, sacrificed our sons and daughters for their own greedy purposes. Wasted trillions of dollars in war.

If you don't "understand" our responses, I urge you to look into the background of the people and situations we condemn. Read info about: The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) – formulated by US neo-conservatives since 1997. They clearly outline their wanting to attack Iraq well BEFORE 911. It's basic goal is to promote US world dominance at "any cost". This includes killing civilians, starting wars based on lies, control oil supplies, regime changes in other countries by force etc. Militarization at all costs.

The Bush Administration completely ingested this approach and reflected it in their foreign policies. Bush and his cohorts made a lot of money from the war in contracts etc. We attacked a country that had nothing to do with 911 and you question our feelings about this.

I actually do not blame you in a way Cindy. Your perspective is not very different from many Americans who have no real idea of what the Bush Administration has done, both to Americans (curbing our civil liberties etc), as well as to people in other nations (deaths). There are a number of prominent international groups who want to try GW Bush for war crimes. This isn't based on "hatred" but on cold, hard facts. Total disregard for international law is not acceptable in a president.

And Laura Bush said GW Bush and in his Administration had "good intentions". Big, big problem here.


Rose   May 18th, 2010 11:40 am ET

RE: 911 – GW Bush continued to insist that his word be accepted as truth, time after time his statements have been revealed as blatant falsehoods. The FBI came up with the names of the 19 hijackers quickly. There names are still on their site.

The BBC reported on September 23, 2001:

Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker turned up alive and well. Saudi Arabian Waleed Al Shehri would apparently crashed Flight 11 into the WTC was in Morocco protesting his innocence.

Abdulaziz Al Omari also accused on Flight 11 is alive and is an engineer with Saudi Telecoms. He had his passport stolen in Denver. Another man with the same name is alive and is a commercial pilot for Saudi Airlines. Saeed Aghamdi accused on Flight 93 is alive and was interviewed by a London-based newspaper. The FBI listed him specifically as a hijacker on the flight that crashed in Pennsylvania.

Later FBI director Robert Mueller acknowledged that the identity of several of the suicide hijackers are in doubt. So where did the Bush Administration get this information? Why do we not even know who the hijackers are when this was the basis for all sorts of actions?


IKHAN   May 18th, 2010 12:56 pm ET

Hi Larry,
Hi folks

@Rose
you bring up a pertinent point re 9/11.The recent assassination of a politician in Dubai by assassins using forged British passports clearly establishes this point.
Fellow bloggers would be intrigued to learn that a thousand qualified engineers & architects in California have refused to accept that the twin towers were destroyed just by planes crashing into them.They have refuted this on the basis of their technical know how, the eye witness accounts & evidence since pushed under the rug.
They are planning to legally get the investigations into the circumstances surrounding 9/11reopened. Apart from the deceits leading up to the Iraq war there are other matters shrouded in a cloak of darkness.


Rose   May 18th, 2010 2:49 pm ET

Incidentally, although BIn Laden is on the FBI's most wanted list for his connection with the August 1998 bombings in Dar Es Salaam and Nairobi – he is NOT wanted for 911.

The FBI confirmed that "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on the Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11".

On September 20, 2001, the Taliban had offered to hand Bin Laden to a neutral country for trial if the US presented them with evidence that he was responsible for the attacks on 911. This offer which repeated by the Taliban on Oct 1, 2001, six days before the US began bombing Afghanistan. The Taliban said they were ready for negotiations.

GW Bush responded: "There's no negotiations. There's no calendar. We'll act on our time." The Justice Department has not formally indicted and charged Bin Laden for the 911 attacks.

The US "Operation Enduring Freedom" began on Oct 7, 2001 against Afghanistan. Thousands upon thousands of Afghan men, women and children have died. Bin Laden not found – as it was never about finding him. Bush then moved on into Iraq.


Rose   May 18th, 2010 4:24 pm ET

@ Ikhan

There are so many Americans who falsely believed that Iraq was behind 911. That Iraq posed a threat with WMD when UN investigators confirmed there were not any. That going into Iraq was acceptable although it was condemned by international law. That remaining in Afghanistan will help us "get" the terrorists when General McChrystal said last September that there are less than 100 Al Qaeda left in Afghanistan. Americans who cannot even identify who we were fighting in Iraq.

That the so-called video of Bin Laden accepting blame for 911 was conveniently "found" however the man in the video does not resemble Bin Laden – who is left handed. The man in the video was right handed and other discrepancies. Same for the gym bag that was "found" with all 19 hijackers' names. The immense profits made by Bush and his associates in the war. It's going to take a long time before a lot of people begin to digest events.

Many were so lost in patriotic stupor and the quest to "get the enemy" that even the most basic facts remain elusive. Democracy is damaged when people don't question nor make an effort to understand. The immensity of what the Bush regime has done confirms that misinformation continues to influence many in the US.

To anyone out there who may be reading this internationally – many of you opposed what Bush did (as many Americans did also). You had facts, we had propaganda. Unfortunately it did not prevent all the killing.


IKHAN   May 18th, 2010 4:59 pm ET

@Rose
valuable contribution for getting a correct perspective as to how it really unfolded.
Pity is that majority of the Americans are not aware & some may event no want to learn the facts.
And propaganda machines are gearing up to push us into yet another war. You read some of the posts re Iran & you shake your head in pity seeing how uninformed they are. The lip smacking war drum beaters are itching to see us get us deeper into quagmire of follies.
No sense of the geo-political & economic consequences for us, the futility, death & destruction, the blood lust just makes them hungrier.
There was no time in the history of this great nation when sanity & wisdom was needed most in our leaders & politicians.
