George W and Laura Bush surprises troops at the USO in the Dallas/Fort Worth TX airport

The picture says it all – genuine love between the former Commander-in-Chief and First Lady and our military troops.

LATimesBlog.com:

Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, made a surprise visit to U.S. troops this afternoon.

They showed up at the USO in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. There they mingled with the returning soldiers, thanked them, chatted and posed for photos as proof of the unexpected encounter for folks back home.

The USO just posted an assortment of the photos on its Facebook page, which quickly drew a growing list of appreciative comments.

“What an AWESOME moment,” Robert Rowe wrote. “If anyone can’t see the President and First Lady’s love for our nations troops, they must be dead or blind. May God Bless them ALL !” Richard Cruz wrote: “The look on that kid’s face says it all….”


And Shirley Lovely Fry added: “A President and First Lady who love their country and their country’s military.”

You can tell how much they miss their former leader, so does most of our nation. “Do You Miss Me Yet?” Yes, Mr. President we do.

I think this is the sign of a true patriot and a caring man.

Nice… I bet the troops appreciated seeing a Commander in Chief they actually respect.. And who respects them back.

Good morale boost for them.

That’s my President! History will be far kinder to him in the long run.

What a great story. One thing I loved about former President Bush was his unwavering commitment to our troops.

Now—-THAT is a President !

Like him as President or not George W. Bush always showed appreciation for the men & women who sacrifice for us daily. Such a glaring difference between Laura & Michelle….Notice please liberals-why I know you do not like President Bush-please notice this visit like ALL his visits to troops, even when President was done without press, without fanfare & most of all without even a teleprompter.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED OOPS IT WASN’T. Now that Obama is returning our troops home Bush is taking the credit. Our troops know Bush never cared about them for the 8 years he was in office but their respecting the title of President. When you see the thousands of soldiers cheer Obama but these are a few smiling for a photo op for Bush. During the years Bush was President my son said an ad was made for Bush with soldiers making statements of support but they were paid a bonus of 1000 dollars to do it. I asked why the soldiers had to be paid he said because they were told to read a statement that everyone knew was a lie, but they needed the extra money. One soldier had to be paid to greet and cheer for Obama. Obama listen to the troops and Americans who wanted the War to end and it happen. Bush made a deal with Satan and nothing will change that. Look the picture of the African American soldier smiling and getting paid to do it. I guess this is another fake story we’ll read about in Bush’s book of lies. I’ll never forget when Bush said God told him to be President and we see the results was Satan told Bush to be President we see the results.

A REAL PRESIDENT!

How nice of them to take time out and visit our troops.
Yes, I do miss Bush. He may not be the gracious speaker Obummer is, but there is no doubt that what he says comes from his heart and not a teleprompter.He loves our troops.
He did what he thought was right when he was in office and every democrat agreed that we should invade Iraq because of the weapons everyone thought Hussien had. He has left Obummer alone as a courtesy to the incoming president and has not said one critical thing about him and his party. Obummer on the other hand can only blame Bush or scream racism when someone criticizes him.

I can’t understand the venom that has been voiced about Bush. He’s honorable, stubborn, knowledgeable, forthright, in other words, I like him. He’s unafraid to expose himself, flaws and all.
Comparing his policy’s that where challenged by the left, then after a year in half of “Change to Believe in”, what I see is a great deal of Bush’s policies still in place.
Where is the left, why aren’t they crying, marching, burning their Obama for president posters? The reason is simple, Bushes policy’s worked then and they are working now….. What the country needs is Obama retired and Jeb Bush president or Palin President and Jeb Bush Vice President….. thats a ticket we could believe in……………

I love GWB. I am so sick of Nancy Pelosi and her crew. Democrats mean one thing – higher taxes, political slop about being a do gooder and then taking as much as they can. Just look at Clinton – born in an outhouse and now worth millions. His big problem is that he will always be remembered for the stained dress. America is so pathetic.

Jacieca !!!! You drank Obummers Koolaid

Posted by: Kingaire | August 11, 2010 at 08:54 PM

I cannot believe that people still think this man was anywhere close to being a good president. Thousands of these men and women are dead because of his total disreguard for the value of peoples lives, and totally destroyed everything our great country stood for. He will go down as the worst president ever. Is this country better or worse than it was when he took over ? Time will tell how bad he and his cronnies really raked us over the coals. He makes Nixon look like a girl scout. The only good thing is that he showed how far off the grid a republican is willing to go. The world has been enlightened. Bubeye GOP . At least you all got rich from selling out the people.

Too bad he couldn’t meet the caskets coming back, but they didn’t allow cameras at those events, did they.

Worst President in the last half century, at least.

I just recently left the military and I can assure you could be no further from the trouth. Talk to someone who is actually in the military and see for yourself how they will compare our past two presidents.

What a devoted servant of the New World Order and the G-8! He has no obligation whatsoever to give these loyal troops a visit and he does so on his own free time. He truly understands how bad this economy needs its poor people to go fight for our resources in energy rich countries. Its too bad there is no audio so we could hear his endearing southern drawl.

WAR CRIMINAL!!!

Posted by: hf2hvit | August 11, 2010 at 09:27 PM

Obama: teleprompter-reliant, even young Scouts BOO HIM !!!Bush: These troops are BEAMING ! YOU CANNOT FAKE THIS !!!
My heart is heavy for all our troops – they deserve a true leader – someone who has their back, prays for them every night (you know GW did/does), respects them immensely, and loves them whole-heartedly.
Libs always did and will disrespect the military. And the military knows this.

Posted by: Terika | August 11, 2010 at 09:28 PM

W and Laura are very genuine people and the love and admiration they have for our troops is quite evident. The smiles and the looks on the soldiers’ faces are beyond heartwarming.

I wouldn’t view this and use it as an opportunity to discredit the current President – as much as I disagree with his policies – but I just love these images because the joy in them is overwhelming.

Just wonderful. What a contrast to the two who currently inhabit the White House. President and Mrs. Bush make my heart swell with pride.

A good man, a great president, and a great Commander-in-Chief.We miss him. Semper Fi.
