Barbara Bush - Not a Big Sarah Palin Fan
There is a right of passage you reach when one gets older, which allows exemption from criticism or judgment, regarding strong comments you may make. You can call it being forthright, or opinionated, or whatever, but often it is also humorous.
Enter Barbara Bush, who at 85 years of age has earned the right to say what’s on her mind. Recently in an interview with CNN’s Larry King, the former First Lady spoke frankly about her feelings regarding Sarah Palin, "I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful," Bush said. "And she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there." She sat quietly after, with that smug look, that ends up being endearing.
The Bushes, who have been married for 65 years, were guests on the Larry King Live show promoting their son’s (President George W. Bush) recently released book, Decision Points. As one would expect, the always supportive parents endorsed the book fully, calling it “good” and “from the heart.”
President Bush, sticking his foot into the cold political waters, commenting that some of the Tea Party's ideas made a lot of sense, but he wasn’t sure if the movement would fit into the “larger political landscape.”
The interview is scheduled to air Monday, Nov. 22 at 8PM PST, on CNN.
