The apple doesn’t fall far from the Bush

(Clever title, no?)

U.S. Embassy Asks Bush Twins to Leave Country

Stories of the twins' visit took on wild proportions in the Argentinean press. One tabloid headline had the young women running nude in the hallway of their hotel, a report the hotel staff denied to ABC News.

Now if photos of such a stunt surfaced, that would make for some good punditry!

"Those poor Bush twins. Why won’t this world just let them party?"

Because we are a nation at war, and for a President that has asked so much of many young men and women, to have his daughters travel about acting like spoiled sorority girls just goes to show how disconnected many folks are from reality. The truth is most American’s are not at war; the American military is. It is rather sad that the President asks so very little of the populace, let alone his own daughters.

To be honest, it doesn’t bother me that the Bush twins drink and have a good time. Lord knows I try to do so when the opportunity provides itself. But Bush and his family must know that they are our people’s representatives, whether they like it or not. Fair? Not really, but that is the price First Children pay. Bush should rein his daughters in for the good of the country.

Not only do I miss Bill Clinton, I also miss his daughter Chelsea and the example she set.

I would love to say “thanks for the post!” But I have no idea what you just said.

I know it is hard not to be hedonistic when young (he says as a forty-something going on 90!) but a they are so heavily in the public eye they should have learned a bit of discretion by now, surely?

Yep Jams, the fact that they are in the public eye (whether they liked it or not) should force them to act a bit more mature than they often do. But hey, this is the Bush family! Maturity is only a thing you pretend during elections!
