I miss having a Commander in Chief who respects us

or even LIKES us

Via Hot Air

Whatever you say about George W. Bush (and his father, for that matter), at least he had utmost respect for his troops and gets max props for that.

Recently my former Commander in Chief surprised troops arriving at DFW with a handshake courtesy of the USO and SLANT 45;

PhotobucketAs 145 American soldiers walked from their plane into Terminal D at DFW International Airport Wednesday morning, they were completely surprised to be greeted by President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush in a rousing SLANT 45 reception.

The crowd included military veterans, key members of Big Thought, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee and a large group of shining faces belonging to the Patriots football squad from the Boys & Girls Club of Collin County.

Jeff Fegan, DFW International Airport’s CEO and the Chair of the Host Committee’s Aviation Action Team, also joined the crowd.

The Patriots, 33 of them ranging from ages 4 to 12, compose a winning football team in Collin County. And they have banded together under Regina Higgins, their Community Service Director, to form a winning SLANT 45 team.

As former Presidents go, the Bushes are a class act.
