Bush family apparently hacked, photos published online

So a member of the Bush family had her e-mails hacked (some family friends also suffered the same fate), and some various awful things got published online—including implications on the health of George H.W. Bush, who recently left the hospital—as well as some amusing but innocuous things, like self portraits George W. Bush painted of himself. 

Update: Originally posted a pic of Bush’s artwork, but then felt guilty about doing so. So here’s a version of the story without the pics. *sigh*

'My man ran up $6 billion dollars in debt. What did Bush do?' Come on, it’s crazy!
Bill O’Reilly, claiming that Bush is old news and shouldn’t be a part of the debate.

Look, the guy was dealt a difficult hand, no question about it. But he’s had three years, his policies have failed. Rather than blame others … maybe offer some fresh solutions to the problems that we face. But that’s not going to happen between now and election day.
 Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush • Expressing disappointment that President Obama continues to point the finger at his brother, former President George W. Bush Sunday. Bush, who made the comments during an interview on “Meet The Press” on Sunday, also discussed his decision not to enter the 2012 presidential race, a move that both shocked and confused many within the GOP, citing a lack of motivation as the top reason he chose not to run for the nation’s highest office. source (viafollow)

Going up? George W. Bush endorses Mitt Romney from closing elevator
Well, that’s one way to do it: Former president Bush provided the opposite of a shocker when revealing that he was endorsing Mitt Romney as his 2012 pick, but the way he did it was weird. “I’m for Mitt Romney,” he said to a reporter after a speech he gave on human rights in Washington on Tuesday — while the doors were closing on the elevator he was in. What, you can’t make a speech on the matter? That said, Bush (whose parents endorsed Romney in March) has been keeping a low profile since leaving office, mostly sticking to Texas and rarely hanging out in Washington. (photo by the U.S. Army)

I believed at the time that the documents were genuine, and I’ve never ceased believing that they are genuine.
Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather • Discussing the saga of George W. Bush’s questioned National Guard service, and the documents Rather found which ended an until-then illustrious career with CBS. Years after the fact, Texas Monthly looks back at a case which Poynter suggests was doomed because CBS jumped the gun with sketchy information, from a mysterious source at a cattle show. Rather, meanwhile, is still trying to defend his roughed-up name. Now’s a good time to look back at this story — with eight years of distance from the controversial CBS report that made proportional spacing a political issue, it’s good to reconsider exactly what happened.

I wish they weren’t called the ‘Bush tax cuts.’
Former President George W. Bush, revealing that the his most prominent remaining namesake in national politics is one he’d rather not have. That’s not to say he has any regrets about his tax-cutting ethos — much to the contrary, his speech was insisting on more money left in the hands of upper-income earners — but he believes that with a less polarizing name attached, there’d be less risk of the rates going back up. That’s pretty honest self-awareness, all things considered.

So Dick Cheney just had a heart transplant. ”Although the former vice president and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift,” an aide to the former vice president said. Cheney famously has had a bum ticker for decades. (photo by Gage Skidmore)

I keep hearing the president say he’s responsible for keeping the country out of a Great Depression. No, no, no, that was President George W. Bush and Hank Paulson.
Mitt Romney • At a town hall meeting today. We’re no political strategists, but we’re wondering how helpful it is for a presidential candidate to make a statement now, in 2012, that’s both pro-George W. Bush and pro-bailout. TARP, for instance, is currently sitting with a net -13 approval rating. Not exactly a winning issue. source (viafollow)
