Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Bush and Barney, Just Like Old Times

Bush and Barney

You may have already read Bill Minutaglio’s piece about George Bush’s post-presidential life in this week’s dead tree issue of Newsweek, but you won’t see this quote in it: “And there I was, former president of the United States of America, with a plastic bag on my hand.” That’s what the former President told some graduating high school seniors in New Mexico Thursday, referring to some quality time he’s been spending with former first dog Barney. “Life is returning back to normal,” he added. He also told the graduates that he’d been relieved of the great sense of responsibility he’d had when in office. “And frankly, it’s a liberating feeling,” he said.
