    She has said some stupid things, but overall, I think, is a good person. A # of years ago she provided the $ for a new Children's wing at Maine Medical Hospital in Portland.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.

    Does Billy Grahams daughter think she is being punished by Jesus for not voting for Trump?

    Hadn't heard that one. I don't recall what 'stupid things' she has said; she always struck me as principled, smart, savvy and tough. I liked her.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    I wish her well. I wish her peace. I wish her as much joy as can be managed at that stage of things (some definitely can). I hope she has learned what she needs to learn during this loop, and comes back ready to learn more.

    I recall some stupid things, but mostly passed them off as the obligatory 'stand by your man' stance from a politician's wife.

    Now there's damning with faint praise!

    I actually said what I said to kind of get out in front of those who might point out some of the things she's said. I have had a chance to speak with her (way before her husband became president) & was quite impressed. Wicked sense of humor too.

    Barbara Bush shares with Abigail Adams the distinction as the only First Ladies who were also mother to a President.

    Pretty good company.

    But, Abigail did not live long enough to see JQA become president. She died in 1818.

    I don't think she had an easy time of it. Nothing is gained from detracting from her now. I do wish her peace.

    One of the smarter things she said when son Jeb was running, "We've had enough Bushes in the White House."

    Just had a friend that passed a few weeks ago from Liver cancer. Operations, chemo, then he declined to have(suffer) any more. I understand that he was on morphine at the end.

    Tragic.

    And Spicer was hiding behind every one of them.

    When the Bushes let ved in Midland and we're raising their kids, they would make a road trip driving back east to visit their families. They would refuse to stay at hotels or eat at restaurants that would not serve their black nanny.
