I agree with jsobecky's point that Laura Bush is not an elected official, so there's no point to giving her too much grief about it (even though it's fun), but as to the point that she is a "decent,caring " person---that's a rather big assumption to make if you don't actually know her, isn't it? I mean, she looks to me like a real-life version of a Stepford Wife, but since I don't know her, I really can only say that is how she seems to me, I can't say she definitely is one way or another.

Here's a video of the First Lady urging those affected by Hurricane "???" to look after their children.
Hurricane Carina? Corona? Kuleener?
Just goes to show how much those at the top really care about this whole disaster. I miss the days when Reagan was POTUS...at least he was an actor and could pretend he cared with some measure of believability.

The first time she says karina, she keeps going like nothing is wrong, smiley and cheerful. Is she aware she messed up? I wouldn't say so judging by that video.
The second time, she temporarily forgets the name. Why would this happen?
I'll tell you why, because she has been "under a rock" concerning the issue. The reason it slipped from her memory is because the word hasn't come up much in her environment. It is not a reinforced word. She has not seen it or heard it much. Hypocritical at the very least, since she is talking about helping victims.

Loats of twists and spins here, and while the subject matter is not as relevant as others, it is a lively thread, By the way, the "I support Saddam" line---you know that could have appleid to George Bush 1 right up until the time of the first Gulf War,right? He was "our boy" for a lot of years, anyone who has seen the photos of Rumsfled shaking hands with him after greasing the wheels to get chemical weapons sent to him---the same ones we later excoriated him for using---knows that.

Jsobecky, i love your new avatar
I think this thread is getting too petty... but why do you take such offense at shots at the first lady?
My goodness, Look at what Hillary had to put up with. If its good for the goose its got to be good for the gander...thick ankles, fat, homely, a bit--, hillbilly, stand by her man idiot a la Tammy Wynnette....And its never let up..
I think for the most part Mrs Bush (Barbara, is it?) has had support from all of us. Perhaps poor taste in men, but nevertheless a good provider...
Its not so bad..
Why politicize this?
