George W. Bush Library Dedication Attended By President Obama And Former Presidents

The caption:

Former first lady Laura Bush, U.S. President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, former President Bill Clinton, former President George H.W. Bush and former President Jimmy Carter attend the opening ceremony of the George W. Bush Presidential Center April 25, 2013 in Dallas, Texas. The Bush library, which is located on the campus of Southern Methodist University, with more than 70 million pages of paper records, 43,000 artifacts, 200 million emails and four million digital photographs, will be opened to the public on May 1, 2013. The library is the 13th presidential library in the National Archives and Records Administration system.

Fox News has a nice write up on the ceremony, and you can learn more about the GWB Presidential Center by clicking here.

Not many people would say this, but I miss the guy. Don’t like everything he did but I know one thing for sure: That man loves this country and everything he advocated while President he did so in what he thought were the country’s best interests. May God continue to bless President Bush and our former First Lady Laura Bush.

    Watching G.W.B. today showed a man of class. Watching Obama showed a man full of himself.

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    W’s deepest and abiding objective was and is the best interests of this nation instead of himself like the laughable pantomine of a superior being by which we are currently victimized.

  3. Agreed, ST, I miss him too. And commenter Bill is right when he says that he is a class act (as is his wife Laura) but Obama is just a narcissist. The contrast is striking.

  4. Carlos says:

    Any count on the first person singulars used by the current prez today? We all know that he considered himself the star of the show, but I turned the TV off when it was his turn.

    Couldn’t stand the thought of cleaning up my barf…

  5. Liz says:

    I never apologize for liking President Bush. He was a true American who tried to compromise (hence spend to much), but he never bashed the other side like you see today. Class.

  6. Lorica says:

    I must say, that this place looks alot nicer than the Bill Clinton Doublewide into the future. It is much more classical architecture. It looks like a beautiful building. Sadly, I expect that the “tolerant” left will attempt to deface the place. They are an odd thinking people. – Lorica

  7. Joe says:

    Completely agree!! He is missed. He made some errors in judgement, but he was honest and his patriotism was never in doubt! Class act all the way.

  8. Lynne says:

    Very moving ceremony… I’m looking forward to visiting this beautiful Presidential Center one day soon.
