George & Laura Bush Secretly Visited Fort Hood


Caroline Glick admires the classy, non-political gesture.

A couple of days ago I heard the news that George and Laura Bush paid a private visit to the wounded soldiers at Fort Hood. They specifically requested that the base commander not inform the media of their visit. They came. They comforted the wounded soldiers and the Fort Hood community for a couple of hours. And then they left. And they never had their pictures taken saluting the troops or holding their hands.

When I heard the news, I felt this pain that hasn’t gone away. It’s a pain that I have been feeling fairly often since last November. …

For all that he disappointed me, I miss George W. Bush. I really do.

I second Miss. Glick’s sentiment about Mr. Bush.


The difference between people of faith with a sense of honor and duty, and a poser…

Matthew 6

1Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

2Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.


He was a man walking in the light of God as best he knew how. He always sought counsel of the Lord, not like the Kings of ancient times or the person in the presidential office today. It is obvious to all who watch with an open heart what is going on. Pray for America and its leaders that they turn back to following God’s will.


I’m involved watching and discussing The Truth Project from Focus on the Family. Tour 9 is about the role of government from God’s perspective. God’s plan is that citizens be governed by Godly individuals who rely on God’s Truth. I believe W did his best to follow this principle. I disagree with some of his decisions but I respect the way he viewed his role as a Christian who happens to be president not the other way ’round.


George and Laura Bush are a credit to our country. He stood tall in the face of adversaries at home and abroad as all real Americans do in the face of crisis. Oboma on the other hand is in a race to the bottom, with a good chance of kicking Carter off last place among presidents.
