What is the Bush Family's Interest in Paraguay? | The Thinkering News
WMR's Paraguayan sources have confirmed that George W. Bush recently bought 42,000 hectares (over 100,000 acres) of land in Paraguay's northern "Chaco" region. <snip>
Bush Family Paraguay Hideaway Update
You said that you were not aware of a sitting president making large expensive purchases and the Bush/Paraguay hoopla popped in my head. I just Googled for some links referring to that issue. I do not vouch for the websites or any agenda they might be pushing. Just trying to point out that once upon a time, the libbos were whining about this much in the same way the wingnuts are whining about Obama doing his thing.
Look on the bright side. That's something you guys have in common with each other. Build on that.
Myself, I think that extravagant purchases like this zero in on something we all should pay attention to. Our presidents, somehow, amass a lot more money in their piggy banks than their paychecks add up to. That should be a red flag.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
I for one can't wait for the day that he leaves office, moves far away from me, and becomes a subject of the ideology he pushes.
Funny thing, the speculation was never confirmed.
Btw, thought I'd add in the reporting of the only semi-reputable org that ran this bull****, The Guardian:
http://www.theguardian.com/world/200...on.tomphillipsRumours of Mr Bush's supposed forays into South American real estate surfaced during a recent 10-day visit to the country by his daughter Jenna Bush. Little is known about her trip to Paraguay, although officially she travelled with the UN children's agency Unicef to visit social projects. Photographers from the Paraguayan newspaper ABC Color tracked her down to one restaurant in Paraguay's capital Asunción, where she was seen flanked by 10 security guards, and was also reported to have met Paraguay's president, Nicanor Duarte, and the US ambassador to Paraguay, James Cason. Reports in sections of the Paraguayan media suggested she was sent on a family "mission" to tie up the land purchase in the "chaco".
Erasmo Rodríguez Acosta, the governor of the Alto Paraguay region where Mr Bush's new acquisition supposedly lies, told one Paraguayan news agency there were indications that Mr Bush had bought land in Paso de Patria, near the border with Brazil and Bolivia. He was, however, unable to prove this, he added.
