Barbara Bush reveals close friendship: ‘I love Bill Clinton’

barbara bushSarah Palin is known to say that America is governed by a “permanent political class,” and recent comments by former first lady Barbara Bush about how she views former President Bill Clinton lends credence to that point of view.

Before Bush’s recent health issues, she sat down for an interview with C-SPAN, part of a series of profiles on America’s first ladies, Investor’s Business Daily reported.

In a candid conversation, Mrs. Bush reveals the bond of friendship that has formed between former President George H.W. Bush, herself and Clinton, whom she said visits “every summer.”

While noting that they do not agree politically, Mrs. Bush seems to almost excuse some of Clinton’s more questionable behavior by stressing that his father “was not around.”

“I think that he thinks of George a little bit like the father he didn’t have,” she said. “And he’s very loving to him and I really appreciate that.”

Pointing out that Clinton looked out for her husband when the two traveled to Indonesia as part of the “Bush-Clinton Tsunami Fund,” she added, “I love Bill Clinton. Maybe not his politics, but I love Bill Clinton.”

      Your last name starts with K as does your alliterative rant. Devilishly clever.

      It’s a pain having to correct people. There is no such thing as a communist. You are referring to Bolsheviks.

    1. A_Government_of_Traitors says:

      Of course she loves George Sr.

  3. sfcmac says:

    Beggin’ yer pardon, Mrs. Bush, but anyone with ethics and integrity would not love Bubba Clinton.

    Just a few reasons why:

    Bubba preferred Monica’s mouth-to-crotch resuscitation over protecting this country.

    Several terrorist attacks occurred on his watch—Khobar Towers, USS Cole, the U.S. Embassy attacks in Kenya and Tanzania, and the FIRST attack on the World Trade Center in 1993—all of them went unanswered. Instead, he wagged-the-dog in Somalia and the Balkans.The Sudanese arrested Bin Laden in 1996, and offered to extradite him. Bubba refused. Three times after Aug. 20, 1998, when Clinton ordered the only missile strike of his presidency against bin Laden’s organization, the CIA came close enough to pinpointing bin Laden that Clinton authorized final preparations to launch. In each case, (Clinton’s) doubts about the intelligence aborted the mission. Bin Laden got away.

    He also committed treason in exchange for Chinese cash. (Chinagate)

    FileGate:
    Clinton illegally obtained as many as 900 FBI files on individuals who were former employees (“political enemies”) during the previous Republican Administrations, including
    President Reagan’s and your husband’s.

    TravelGate:
    Bill and Hillary used an Arkansas travel agency, World Wide Travel, working with Clinton’s cousin Catherine Cornelius. The firm had provided a million dollars in deferred (fly now- pay later) travel for the Clinton campaign, freeing up much
    needed cash for campaigning. Employees of the firm donated to the Clinton campaign. The apparent pay-back to the firm was supervised by supervised by Hillary. When the story broke, she fired all the employees and threatened them with FBI investigations if they talked.

    Hi Tom, how about learning to correctly use who and whom? But you are not alone since I saw whom misused in 2 other reports this week. My advice: play it safe and always use who. Re political dynasties, we had the fading Kennedy clan started by rum running patriarch Joseph, now the Clintons if, perish the thought, Hillary gets elected with Chelsea in the wings, or possibly Michelle following Barack? May God have mercy and spare us such disasters!

  5. willyd says:

    Mrs. Bush again shows she has class and a maternal nature in looking past Bill Clinton’s shortcomings and embacing the caring individual beneath the politician. Clearly there are some posters here that could not pick up on that. What a shame we have to be so hateful.

  6. Faithful American says:

    Barbara Bush AND Laura Bush were CLASSY First Ladies! God help Michelle Obama, because SHE is NOT!

  7. A_Government_of_Traitors says:

    Barbara Bush shows once again that the Democrat Party and the Republican party are two sides of the same coin.

    The Bush family is the royal American family in the international banking cartel that ru(i)ns the world.

    We must ask ourselves, “Why are so many ultra wealthy people (Bush, Soros, Bloomberg…) left wing Bolsheviks? Why do they want to plunge the U.S. into totalitarianism?” Obviously it’s about the two class system, the haves and the have-nots.

    They want to destroy the 2nd Amendment so you will not be able to defend yourselves against them and that you will not be able to repay them for their crimes against humanity.

  8. tired says:

    She is senile and has been sick so I don’t believe she knows what she is saying. I hope she doe NOT really love this evil man.
