    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."

    W has more class, dignity, honor, and "American" in his pinky finger than Obama will ever know.

    Say what you will about his term, but there is no question that that family are true Americans.

    And that's something the Obama's would consider an insult.

    That is a surprise. Considering that Bush sent them off to Iraq with old and rusty equipment. Trapped them there tour after tour. Failed to get Bin Laden. Let thousands of Americans die and crippled nearby 50 thousand young Americans to create another right wing hard core Islamic Theocracy modeled on Iran.

    And couldn't find the money to take care of these brave soldiers because he had already given it to his rich friends so they could move American jobs overseas. LET'S KEEP THE BUSH TAX CUTS!

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    Signs from a "thankful" people? Is this what they look like? Bush said, "We won't leave until they have the kind of military we thought they had when we went in". And Republicans eat this shit up.

    But...but...where is the nasty, trollish, cynical and rude thread talking about how they're only there to try to resurrect his pathetic legacy?
