“People Spoke. Move On, Get On With It” Says Barbara Bush After Elections

Filed under: World News |

On Thursday, Barbara Bush, the former first lady attended a conference in Austin where she was in a forum on America’s first ladies. Sharing her desire to move beyond the campaign madness, just a week after President Barack Obama’s re-election, she said,

“I’m tired now of the elections. People spoke. Move on, get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly.”

Bush, who had endorsed Republican Mitt Romney, was with former first lady Laura Bush on a panel for the Enduring Legacies of America’s First Ladies conference at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library.

While the women seemed unwilling to speak on their own opinions about politics, Barbara Bush, the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, did say,

“They are going to have to compromise. It’s not a dirty word.”

Both women shared fond memories of the time they spent in the White House.

When asked if a woman can ever be prepared to be a first lady, both women agreed that it was possible. Barbara Bush added that if the woman was married to a governor or vice president, then that was good preparation and Laura Bush added that she had had the advantage of having a mother-in-law who was a first lady so she was able to benefit from following her example.

  1. Once they convince Mitch McConnell anad John McCain and their group of Haters to step aside,(RETIRE) maybe our country can get back on track to being normal. There is too much Racism and Hatred existing in American Politics especially with the “Old Time White Guards” of what they think is right and correct for their way of living. It does not include anyone of color. People like this are afraid of the “Browning Of America.” This is something that is very unfathomable by their standards. They will never accept the fact there is only one group of people and that is the Human Race. I must agree with the former first ladies, they need to get over it and move on.
    For the good of our country and for the world to see, they should start working together making life as we know it, Better! Not devisive!

  2. THank you ladies for the truth is the truth. We need compromise with both parties. How sad the wives have more common sense than their husbands.
