Classy Laura Bush Defends Both Barack Obama and Dick Cheney (Video)

Former First Lady Laura Bush says that it's okay for President Obama to address schoolchildren via a back-to-school speech.

"I think there is a place for the President of the United States to talk to schoolchildren and encourage schoolchildren," but that parents had "the right" to not let their children hear his speech.

Also, she didn't think it is fair for Obama to be called a socialist by foes - just as her own husband was the brunt of criticism under his watch. "We're polarizing a lot of people," she says. "I think it's just what happens."

She also comments that President Obama is "doing a good job," and his wife Michelle is "doing great."

Finally, she says that former Vice President Dick Cheney "has every right to speak out, and I appreciate that he's defending the Bush administration. I think that's important. I think there's a place for that."

Still classy; what a great woman.

  2. SUGGESTION TO THE RIGHT WING:

    Just sit back and relax, folks. Barack Obama is only performing a routine presidential duty that has been performed by presidents for generations. There's nothing to be afraid of. He's not trying to turn your babies into mini Marxists. This isn't the Trotsky For Toddlers program. The president of the United States merely wants to have a heart to heart talk with the children of America about the importance of a good education, that's all. I promise you, we Progressives do not believe in evil, subliminal messages. Chill out!
