God Bless You, Barbara Bush

Outpouring of tributes to former First Lady at news of her failing health.

College campuses have been hostile territory for Republicans for a long time. George H.W. Bush was slightly less popular…

Maybe leftists had better manners back then. Or maybe Barbara Bush was a woman who was impossible to hate. I'll never forget meeting her that day. The secret service was having kittens as she walked through a crowd of 2,000 students down on the athletic fields. But Mrs. Bush walked calmly through, shaking hands and smiling. As we stood there, she looked up towards the campus and pointed to Tyler House and remarked "I used to live in that house right over there." It was a wonderful moment.
