George H.W. Bush to Receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Well, President Obama is busy blaming his son for everything from the economy to the Tour de France doping scandal, but George H.W. Bush will appear at the White House early next year to receive the presidential medal of honor.

He’ll appear along with an eclectic group that will feature, German Chancellor Angela Merkel; Congressman and civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.); basketball great Bill Russell; author Maya Angelou; Natural Resources Defense Council founder John H. Adams; painter Jasper Johns; Gerda Weissman Klein, a Jewish Holocaust survivor who has written several books about her experiences. Dr. Tom Little, a doctor who was murdered by the Taliban; baseball great Stan Musial, Jean Kennedy Smith; Cellist Yo-Yo Ma; and former AFL-CIO President John Sweeney.

6 Responses to George H.W. Bush to Receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

  1. Exactly how does one earn this honor? The honorees list is certainly diverse; from basketball skills to cello mastery. MrsMerkel? didn’t she just kick the Prez in the shins while they were in Japan? Some might believe that the POTUS is condesending by giving an honor to the German leader.

    The last time we saw MrBush,Sr, he appeared to be frail and somewhat disabled. Maybe Junior will accept the honor on his Dad’s behalf.

  2. QUESTION: WHY are they giving the Medal of Freedom to President Bush?

    ANSWER: He was our nation’s first Socialist President. He caved into the banking industry’s (heroin-like) need for cash, followed President Clinton and his father’s anti-Semitic, pro-Islamic Middle Eastern policy toward Israel (equating law abiding Jews with suicide-bombing Palestinians) and continued the tradition of being a “Citizen of the World.” George Bush has more in common with latte-drinking, cocktail swilling liberals (and RINOs) than he does with hamburger-munching, beer-guzzling conservatives. He is receiving the award because he is now part of the club, part and parcel, paid for by billion dollar corporations, the U.N., and for maintaining the current “judenrein” policy of our State Department.

    What a f——-g joke.
