I would not have thought this was possible 25 years ago (the Bushes witnessing their friends gay marriage) when he was President.  Also the Bushes are a stark contrast to the craziness of the Tea Party Republicans and their opposition to gay marriage,  who claim to believe in freedom and limited government but  want government to control who you may love and marry.

Former President George H.W. Bush was an official witness at the same-sex wedding of two longtime friends

So, no surprise.  Don't let this fool anyone for a second.  Wealthy right wingers aren't necessarily socially conservative at heart.  If their rich buddies are gay or whatever that's fine, but if its politically convenient to mobilize the marching morons against vulnerable minorities, they'll still do so.  This is still the rich, ruthless old man who ran the CIA, helped Reagan spread murder and rape through Central America for a decade or so, and appointed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.

He was good at foreign policy, being on first name basis with most heads of state from his previous jobs of VP and CIA Head.  Didn't put ideology over economics entirely.  But he didn't do much for anyone with a job, like most in his party.

He did okay given the Reagan economic meltdown we were facing and he didn't ruin the environment or try to inflict some righteous God on us or punish the poor for their misfortune. He knew that we had things we needed to be spending on and he knew that meant we needed revenue. He was a a decent and principled leader that my side of the aisle vilified for no good reason. And he worked with Congress and the opposition even when he didn't have to.

I completely agree with you. The GOP has really gone batshiat since him. I would say though that part of why he wasn't reelected is that he didn't know how to handle the media and and got burned at the stake by them. It's a shame. Not that I regret Clinton's years in office (but fark him for caving to the "welfare reform" crowd) it's just that he has a decent man and did a decent job and I miss his kind.

Not the Bushes I expected, but not a total surprise.

To be fair, the Bushes are surprisingly good friends with the Clintons, and Bush Sr. was always more of a fiscal conservative than a social conservative. I expect that on this issue he is more liberal than Obama and possibly his children.

Even back in the Nixon days, there were some conservatives, like the Mitchells, who had gay friends. This is normal in the upper and governing classes.

No doubt, as America and belatedly, the GOP, adjusts to the new normal, people like the Bushes will come to the fore and official homophobia will be relegated to Tea Partyists and Christian Jihadis.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose, as John Kerry would say.

Washington may get pretty vicious when it breaks down into the old game of skins versus shirts, but after the game is over, people have to shake hands and to have dinner with each other.

From The Garden Party

The rich arrived in pairs
And also in Rolls Royces
They talked of their affairs
In loud and strident voices.

The husbands and the wives
Of this select society
Enjoy independent lives
Of Infinite variety.

Hilaire Belloc


Belloc was a Roman Catholic and with C.K. Chesterton formed the romantic conservative counter-weight to people like H.G. Wells and George B. Shaw. As his children's voice shows, he had a sense of humour and a touch of cynicism or realism despite being profoundly religious and like many Roman Catholics, hopelessly idealizing the Middle Ages and the Medieval Church. (As opposed to the medievalist Umberto Eco, who more sensibly points out that the Middle Ages have never ended, so everything conservatives hate about modern society was already prominent in the 1300s or earlier. See The Name of the Rose for a masterful analysis of how medieval theology translates into modern politics and vice versa. Being Italian and a medievalist, Eco is sort of a J.R. Tolkien when it comes to understanding how the fantasy fits into the reality and vice versa.)

I love the Biblical and apocalyptic ending of this poem:

They married and gave in marriage
(And some of them kept a carriage)
And the Flood destroyed them all!

Recommended reading: All the children's poetry of Hilaire Belloc. Optional: everything else.

Monkeyman935: Senile ex-president can't match his socks.  Probably thought the one with the butch mullet haircut was a man and that he was signing an autograph for a fellow good ole boy.


I expect that he wears mismatching socks intentionally. This is a classic prep school affectation and after being dressed by a Mrs. Bush and the GOP for decades, if not his whole life, I expect it is a defiant gesture and symbol of his independence in retirement. Bush has a typically upper class mind. I don't think there is an original bone in his body. He's a company man. He's The Company's man.

hmm. i bet you 20 zillion dollars he wouldnt support gay marriage if his daughter wasnt gay


You're probably right, but from a cold, pragmatic point of view, the fact that he does support gay marriage is far more important than why he does.  More specifically, from the point of view where "Does this help or hurt the cause of gay rights as a whole, in the long run?" is the prime criterion.

If I could go back in time, I would kill his father.

You have a very loose acquaintance with history. GHWB was actually a very good president. And he's been a great former prez. I wish there were more of his ilk in today's GOP.

No, he was NOT a good president.  He got us into the stupid Iraq mess, which was a major event that helped cause 9/11.  Kuwait was NOT our problem, we should have left it the fark alone.

He was also a huge part of the cause of the current surveillance state, or are you forgetting that he's a former CIA director?

I'll give you that he's a decent former president.  But his presidency was worse than Reagan's, and Reagan was the worst president in our country's history until W came along.


That's quite a few inaccurate statements.

I don't know about that, but I can say, when GHWB was president, I thought he was terrible and marched in protest against his policies.  By the time his son was up for re-election, GHWB didn't look nearly so bad.

G. H. W. Bush was a WWII hero; if you eliminate him from history, Hitler wins.  http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel



I was referring to PRESCOTT BUSH, war profiteer.
Eliminate him, and Hitler has to hold a bake sale to finance the blitzkrieg.

Eliminate him, and neither of the Georges, or Jeb would exist.

You do realize that the fact that H. W. Bush was between W. Bush and Reagan makes this impossible, right?

Nope. WERE.

There were a couple of Bushes in the wedding.
There were some Bushes in the wedding.
There were several Bushes in the wedding.

"Couple", "some" and "several" are modifiers relating to Bushes, plural.

There was a Bush couple in the wedding is fine though, where "Bush" modifies "couple", singular.

Learn moar.

Doesn't matter.  Any alteration of history results in a Hitler victory:

Wow Barb hasn't aged. She has looked about 70 for the last 30 years. That is impressive.

Buchanan was our worst President - so damn bad that anyone who doesn't actually directly cause the successful destruction of the country is at best in distant second. Harding was also worse than Reagan or GHWB, as was Grant, arguably.

Yeah, I'm filing his rant in the "did America quit when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor" category.

Yep, that's gonna happen any second now.  Why not sit here and hold your breath until it does?

fusillade762: his wife, Laura Bush, and their daughter Barbara Bush support gay marriage, as does his former vice president, Dick Cheney, whose daughter Mary Cheney is openly gay.

So... not 100% evil, then?


He only supports it because it personally affects one of his clan. Thatd doesn't indicate a lack of evil.

Stop scratching him - he'll leave a scar.

First, I'm not convinced that old Mr. Bush even realizes where he is half the time.

Second, what you do after serving is of no consequence.  If your later actions contradict your actions as president, it only shows that you have no conscience as a human being.

Third, hasn't that old man died yet?

No Such Agency: Former President George H.W. Bush was an official witness at the same-sex wedding of two longtime friends

So, no surprise.  Don't let this fool anyone for a second.  Wealthy right wingers aren't necessarily socially conservative at heart.  If their rich buddies are gay or whatever that's fine, but if its politically convenient to mobilize the marching morons against vulnerable minorities, they'll still do so.  This is still the rich, ruthless old man who ran the CIA, helped Reagan spread murder and rape through Central America for a decade or so, and appointed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.


Your need to try and fit square pegs into round holes to justify your hatred of conservatives disturbs me.
