What’s Your Take On President Obama, Barbara Bush?? Sorry, We Didn’t Get That?

Not a word about President Obama and the destructive policies he is using to destroy our country, but oh, she did not waste a second to take a dig at Gov. Palin when asked the following question, “What’s your take on Sarah Palin?” by Larry King on the Larry King Show.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush

The real question is why is Barbara Bush saying “she hopes Palin stays in Alaska”

Yep, that was a sly, nasty very catty dig made by the former First Lady toward Sarah Palin.  This was not a slip of the tongue because Mrs. Bush’s words were very carefully worded and measured.  She was prepared for the question and answered it perfectly to the liking of Larry King and other Sarah Palin detractors.

Unfortunately, Mrs. Bush’s remarks will be used over and over again by those who hate Gov. Palin to denigrate her and belittle her credibility.  Hmmm, something like what the mainstream media did to Mrs. Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush.  How ironic.

The quip, which is widely reported by the lame stream media, reveals several things, none of them complimentary to the former First Lady.
Baldfaced Sexism and Misogyny?

The emphasis on Gov. Palin’s feminine beauty combined with the “advice” to stay in Alaska is baldfaced sexism and misogyny and what makes it worse is coming from another woman. This is tantamount to saying that Gov. Palin’s “place” is “barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.” How else is one supposed to interpret, “she was beautiful..very happy in Alaska…I hope she’ll stay there”?

Mrs. Bush, what a pity, we expected so much more civility from you.  You have just lost a considerable amount of respect from many patriotic Americans who see former Governor Sarah Palin in a different light than you and Larry King do.

Mrs. Palin has a lifetime of accomplishments. She can run circles around our present occupant in the Oval Office.  I would advise you Mrs. Bush to be careful with your speech.  Your son, our former 43rd president, has just written a book in which he explains his decisions he made during his eight years of president and the process he used to make those decisions.

The very man, Larry King, who elicited that unfortunate statement from you about Mrs. Palin, is one of the leaders of the pack wolves who attacked your son, George W. Bush, while  he was in office, for what they in the mainstream media describe as ignorant, stupid and ill prepared to lead our country.

Those of us who love your son and believe that he was a strong president who kept our country safe during the last decade cannot understand how you could have said such a demeaning thing about Gov. Palin, who admires  and respects your son, former President Bush.

Home of the Bush compound

Mrs. Bush, maybe you should stay in Kennebunkport, Me.

Bristol And Mark Were Superb Tonight – This Is Your Last Chance To Vote Online For Them To Win

Bristol and Mark did not fail their fans tonight in the finals on DWTS.  Tonight’s theme was ‘redemption’ and ‘freestyle’ night.  Dressed in a baby blue sequined dress with a pink sash and white crinoline slip peeping out from under the bottom and Mark dressed in a baby blue sequined jacket, they hit the floor doing the Jive.

This was their chance to redeem themselves from that Monkey Suit business, when Bristol had a hard time getting out of hers.  Well, they did it!  They danced the Jive tonight to a different song and never missed a beat.  Bristol was bouncy and energetic and just fun to watch.  Her face was full of expression and joy.  She seemed stronger than ever and that was a feat to accomplish after all that has happened to her this past week.

I guess we can say she’s a chip off the old block.  Strong as steel with the joy of the LORD!  Mark is the gem of a gentleman.  He cannot be thanked enough for the way he has taken care of our girl.  He has been so protective to her and that has not been easy for him to do in Hollywood tinsel town.  He seems to not care what the others are saying or thinking about Bristol’s performance in this show.  He is an angel.

Let’s take a look again at their energetic Jive-

Good job, kids!  They received 3 9s from the judges for a total of 27 out of 30 for their superb performance.  Head judge, Len Goodman said to Bristol, “The last time you were a gorilla and this time you are a thriller!”  Way to go, Len.

Their last dance of the night was the Free Style which presented a bit of a challenge to Bristol at first.  Mark selected “Cell Block Tango”, from Bob Fosse’s “Chicago” but Bristol had never seen the Broadway play or its adaptation to the movie screen.

“I’ve never seen Chicago,” Bristol said in rehearsal. “I’ve never been to a Broadway show.”  Mark was able to convince her that everything would be fine and he was right.

Their interpretation was fantastic, with Bristol and Mark dancing a dramatic Argentine Tango, which started with Bristol dancing in a cage and ended with Mark in the cage.   There were a lot of sexual tensions and dramatic movements involved in the dance and for someone who has never danced before and has never been to a Broadway play, Bristol did a magnificent job!  She had the right emotion, the right attitude and plenty of determination in the dance.  it was quite entertaining to watch –

Head judge, Len Goodman, liked it and gave Bristol praises, “That was no disaster, I thought it was fantastic!”  Len’s colleagues Bruno and Carrie Ann both gave her low score of 8s.  Carrie Ann tried to compare Bristol’s performance to that of the actresses in the original Broadway play – people who have spent their life time singing, dancing and acting on stage!  Bruno gave her credit for determination and for reaching so high.  It was still appalling that the two of them gave her 8s when she deserved 10s.  She really came out of her comfort zone and performed as Mark had taught her. It was completely theatrical.

They did rent the movie of “Chicago” to help her get the feel of the tension and drama of the women in the iconic movie-

Bristol is a quick study.  She’ll need that because Tuesday night she will have to learn a Quick Cha Cha.  Besides doing their personal favorite she and Mark will be given another Insta Dance challenge.  Their song will be give to them at the beginning of Tuesday’s show and they will have to choreograph the Cha Cha to that song and perform it.

This has been an amazing journey for Bristol and she deserves to win.  So we pray and pray some more and cheer this beautiful young woman along her way.  The judges may have scored her to be last but God said the last shall be first when you honor Him.

I feel really good about Tuesday night.  Bristol and Mark shine like the morning day sun!!  God bless you both.
