At least they aren’t all crazy

Despite Dubya being the worst president after James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Millard Fillmore, and Franklin Pierce, his messed up ideology is not wholly pervasive within his family.

She may have been born into a Republican family, but Barbara Bush, the 28-year-old daughter of former President George W. Bush, sounded more like a Democrat this weekend during an interview with Fox News. When “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked her whether she supports President Obama’s health care reform plan, she responded: “I guess I’m glad the bill was passed.”

“Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?” she said. “Health should be a right for everyone.” She is president of the Global Health Corps, an organization that champions global health equity.

The article goes on to cite Laura Bush’s support for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, as well as her support for abortion rights and same-sex marriage. It’s nice to at least know that whole family isn’t a bunch of loons.

Thought of the day

I will call no being good, who is not what I mean when I apply that epithet to my fellow-creatures; and if such a being can sentence me to hell for not so calling him, to hell I will go.
