    President to release memoirs!!! Historical first!!! Read all about it!!!

    So lame and childish...
    It was initially a press release through the Bush administration in, I want to say 2007 or 2008 (if this was the first attempt to do so). It was largely seen as either a fluff piece or a fluff piece meant to rebuke liberal complaints of his lack of intellectuality or reading habits.

    And you think he got in AND graduated because of who his grandfather was?

    I don't think people are "defending" Bush as much as people are attacking the undeserved denigration of the education of the former president.

    Did I ever say I was a fan of Bush? I am merely pointing out the double-standards of the left...
