  1. I LOVE President Reagan. The very first President I ever voted for (was old enough to vote for). Voted for him over Jimmy (UGGGGH) Carter. Those were terrible days for our country. But I don’t think that they were nearly as bad as they are today. We haven’t even “hit” the inflation YET. It will be bad.

    I remember, I was in college, and had JUST had my first daughter in September (on the 11th, the same birthday as Coach Bryant – I was a Bamabelle at The University of Alabama) and I took my daughter who was just 1-1/2 mos old in her little “pumpkin” seat into the voting booth with me, drew the curtains shut and thought, oh no! What do I do now? I saw all of these levers and gadgets in front of me. I figured it out and then we left. I was so happy.

    We went home and watched the returns. And then, MIRACLE of all MIRACLES the American hostages in Iran were SAVED on the day that Reagan took office. It was a perfect day.

    He was so hopeful and optimistic. He brought patriotism back to America. Carter was so bleak and his wife wore the SAME BLUE DRESS for four years. I just remember that.

    Nancy Reagan was such a breath of fresh air and she adored “Dutch”. He was our last REAL PRESIDENT. He couldn’t be bought. He used to fight House Speaker Tip O’Neil tooth and nail but after hours, they’d sit together and smoke cigars and tell stories. They didn’t treat one another with disrespect and disdain like these creeps do today. Classless, that’s what we have today.

    I CRIED the day Reagan left office. I broke down and CRIED all day long. Although I worked for G.H.W.Bush’s campaign, I never liked him. For one thing, he sent my husband overseas to Saudi and then to Iraq. Desert Storm. I did get to meet Colin Powell and Norman Schwartkopt (or however he spells his name, I can’t ever spell it right – he is a DANDY and a TEDDY BEAR). Powell, a big fake.

    I MADE my husband retire from his “army” job after that. He lost his retirement benefits. It was the Army or me. He chose me and I’m sure he regrets it now.

    President G.W. Bush was a big cut-up and I worked for his campaign. I loved his wife, Laura. I think he did a great job and kept us safe. THANK GOD WE DIDN’T GET AL GORE! What a nut.

    Anyway, I just wanted to comment on “Dutch” Reagan. What a great American. What a wonderful story, if you haven’t read the story of his life, you should. And, you should read the love story of him and Nancy.

  2. Oh, did you hear about the ceremony for President George Bush and his “official” portait. When he took the podium, he said, “I hear they’re going to hang me today…”

    ROFLMAO

    The man was hilarious. But Laura Bush and Condoleeza and Lynn Cheney were very funny. They snuck out one night and went to a bar to see the Chippendale Dancers. This came out at the President “Roast” ceremony. Laura Bush gave a speech and had everyone in the room rolling, and holding their sides. I can’t remember everything she said but it was unbelievable. She told all kinds of stuff on her husband. Then she told the story about the three “girls” sneaking out of the White House. And said, “what happens in the White House, stays in the White House…..”

  3. Sorry WG, you got me onto this Laura Bush funny thing and I couldn’t get my mind off of it. Being the ex-engineer that I am, I had to go with it. So, here’s the COMPLETE SCRIPT from the Correspondent’s Dinner. I thought it was side-splitting. You may not find it so funny but you must remember that Laura Bush didn’t get the chance to say much. This WAS her night.

    Laura Bush: First lady of comedy?
    The complete transcript of Laura Bush’s comments from the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, held April 30:

    President Bush: Thank you and good evening. I always look forward to these dinners, where I’m supposed to be funny — intentionally. I’m really looking forward to hearing Cedric the Entertainer. I kind of think of myself that way.

    Cedric, did you hear that hilarious line I ad-libbed down in Arkansas? A woman in a town meeting told me she was from DeQueen, and I said, ‘That’s right next to DeKing.’ You gotta’ admit that’s pretty good, Cedric. That’s what you call sophisticated re — par — tay.

    Then out in Montana, I told a joke about a cattle guard, which, to be honest, didn’t get a very big laugh — actually, none. But Cedric, I think you’ll appreciate this, and you can use it if you want to. See, there was this city slicker who was driving around lost and he came across this ol’ cowboy. And so the city slicker asked the old guy how to get to the nearest town, and —

    First Lady Laura Bush: Not that old joke — not again.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been attending these dinners for years and just quietly sitting there. Well, I’ve got a few things I want to say for a change.

    This is going to be fun because he really doesn’t have a clue about what I’m gonna’ to say next.

    George always says he’s delighted to come to these press dinners. Baloney. He’s usually in bed by now.

    I’m not kidding.

    I said to him the other day, “George, if you really want to end tyranny in the world, you’re going to have to stay up later.”

    I am married to the president of the United States, and here’s our typical evening: Nine o’clock, Mr. Excitement here is sound asleep, and I’m watching Desperate Housewives— with Lynne Cheney. Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife. I mean, if those women on that show think they’re desperate, they oughta be with George.

    One night, after George went to bed, Lynne Cheney, Condi Rice, Karen Hughes and I went to Chippendale’s. I wouldn’t even mention it except Ruth Ginsberg and Sandra Day O’Connor saw us there. I won’t tell you what happened, but Lynne’s Secret Service codename is now “Dollar Bill.”

    But George and I are complete opposites — I’m quiet, he’s talkative, I’m introverted, he’s extroverted, I can pronounce nuclear —

    The amazing thing, however, is that George and I were just meant to be. I was the librarian who speant 12 hours a day in the library, yet somehow I met George.

    We met, and married, and I became one of the regulars up at Kennebunkport. All the Bushes love Kennebunkport, which is like Crawford, but without the nightlife. People ask me what it’s like to be up there with the whole Bush clan. Lemme put it this way: First prize — three-day vacation with the Bush family. Second prize — 10 days.

    Speaking of prizes brings me to my mother-in-law. So many mothers today are just not involved in their children’s lives — Not a problem with Barbara Bush. People often wonder what my mother-in-law’s really like. People think she’s a sweet, grandmotherly, Aunt Bea type. She’s actually more like, mmm, Don Corleone.

    Cedric, am I doing all right?

    I saw my in-laws down at the ranch over Easter. We like it down there. George didn’t know much about ranches when we bought the place. Andover and Yale don’t have a real strong ranching program. But I’m proud of George. He’s learned a lot about ranching since that first year when he tried to milk the horse. What’s worse, it was a male horse.

    Now, of course, he spends his days clearing brush, cutting trails, taking down trees, or, as the girls call it, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. George’s answer to any problem at the ranch is to cut it down with a chainsaw — which I think is why he and Cheney and Rumsfeld get along so well.

    It’s always very interesting to see how the ranch air invigorates people when they come down from Washington. Recently, when Vice President Cheney was down, he got up early one morning, he put on his hiking boots, and he went on a brisk, 20- to 30-foot walk.

    But actually, in all seriousness, I do love the ranch, and I love the whole Bush family. I was an only child, and when I married into the extended Bush clan, I got brothers and sisters and wonderful in-laws, all of whom opened their arms to me. And included in the package, I got this guy here.

    I think when you marry someone, you unconsciously are looking for something in your spouse to help fulfill something in you, and George did that for me. He brought fun and energy into my life and so many other things. George is a very good listener, he’s easy to be around, and on top of it all, he’s a loving father whose daughters absolutely adore him.

    So in the future, when you see me just quietly sitting up here, I want you to know that I’m happy to be here for a reason — I love, and enjoy being with, the man who usually speaks to you on these occasions.

    So George and I thank you for inviting us, thank you for all of the good work that you and the press do, and thank you for your very kind hospitality this evening.
