TIDBIT: YOU JUST CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP FOLKS: GHW BUSH GIVEN ...
You just cannot make this stuff up, folks, and sometimes you have to marvel at the brazen idiocy or arrogance of these people. It seems G.H.W. Bush has been given the LBJ Foundation award:
Now, gee(he said with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek), I wonder what G.H.W. Bush, and L.B. Johnson, had in common, besides the presidency, and both having been ...well, mediocre at best? Hmmmm.... well, both were Vice Presidents when other presidents were assassinated, or nearly so... Hmmm.... I wonder if there might be anything else? ... Oh I guess I'll just have to go on line and Hunt for it...

I Loved The Comment Posted For This Story On The Huffpost, “These Two Have Teamed Up Before!” …. !!!
whats so great about (the great society)?? no new taxes!!!
From Yahoo News:
“With apologies to the suit, perhaps it’s the socks that make the man. To prove it, here’s George H.W. Bush wearing socks with a picture of his face on them. The former president, who was accepting the LBJ Foundation’s “Liberty and Justice for All” award, is known for his whimsical and eye-catching sock choices. See the close-up photo: ”
What did GHWB do to deserve this award answers anybody?
The “Et tu, Brute?” Award.
good one, Robert!
I’m beginning to get the feeling that the answer to the question “Who shot JFK?” is turning out to be an Agatha Christie “Murder on the Orient Express” solution:
Everybody took a shot.
Loved it Debra!
I’ll never look at the mystery of the “Orient Express” in quite the same way; and that’s good.
RE: what do both men have in common? uhhhh, Neither one remembers being in Dallas “that day.”
Perhaps both should have been given the ‘Huntsman’ award instead. Just look at that, you know what, eating grin on GHWB’s face. Looks exactly like the grin spied on Dick Cheney’s face, when trigger happy Dick emerged from a corn field, allegedly mistaking 78-year old Texas attorney Harry Whittington’s face for a quail while ‘Hunting’ on a ranch in ‘Kenedy’ County, Texas.
Very few historians of any political stripe would rate the LBJ presidency as “mediocre at best”.
Even if you have an ideological opposition to the policies of “The Great Society”, it seems silly to pretend they haven’t significantly shaped the America we see before us today.
The man got a lot done.
For what its worth, this is not me arguing against the central premise of the piece, just the word “mediocre” being applied to Johnson. It fits the GHWB Presidency perfectly.
These two characters are the nation’s Baines/Banes…
He He, caught that huh?
