From today



On Tuesday, the former first lady, 72, took members of her family, including new son-in-law Craig Coyne, on a tour of the White House, where she and husband George W. Bush lived during his two terms in office from 2001 to 2009. The visit took place after Melania Trump extended an invitation to the Bush family to see this year’s “American Treasures”-themed holiday decorations.

The broadcast tributes revived some ugly memories of 1992.  How so many could be taken by an obvious lowlife con artist I will never understand.  They seemed to recognize their mistake the moment the election was over.

The missing man flyover – a high honor bestowed by the military – “is a symbolic final farewell to a great man who left a tremendous legacy of selfless service to his nation and his family,”

Indeed.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

You kidding? Anyone could have beat Bush in '92 because this idiot spent his whole 4 years flushing what Reagan did down the toilet. He was a lousy president.

I believe that Carter is the last President to serve in WWII..

I'm not a huge fan on Dole, but I must admit that this picture brought a tear to my eye.  It took all the energy he could muster to show his respect for his friend.  God bless him!

Trumps arrive. He did not acknowledge his predecessors as he arrived. Mrs. Trump and President Obama shake hands. Once seated, the Obamas shake hands with him. Clintons, Carters never looked over to acknowledge him.

The Trumps are seated next to:

1) The president Trump said was illegitimate (Obama)
2) The president he said assaulted women (Clinton)
3) The first lady/SoS he said should be in jail (Hillary)
4) The president he said was the second-worst, behind Obama (Carter)
