George and Laura Bush will be here Thursday

Former President George W. Bush and wife, Laura, will be here Thursday.

Former President George W. Bush and wife, Laura, will be here Thursday.

Former President George W. Bush, who has been making the rounds in support of his new book, “Decision Points,” will be here in Atlanta to sign it on Thursday.

Former First Lady Laura Bush, who was in town not long ago supporting her book, “Spoken From the Heart,” will return to Atlanta accompanying her husband. (Here’s a blog post from her visit earlier this year, during which she dined at South City Kitchen and made time for some antiques shopping.)

The former first couple will appear at 11:30 a.m. this Thursday at the Buckhead Borders, at 3637 Peachtree Rd. In order to meet them, you need to obtain a wristband in advance. Wristbands are available beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday at that Borders.

To receive the wristband you need to purchase both “Decision Points” and “Spoken From the Heart.” (Limit of two books per person). It sounds like security will be tight during their visit. During the appearance, you’ll need to leave all bags, purses and phones in your car.

For more information call the store at 404-237-0707.

I wasn’t a fan of former President George W. Bush. Since he left office, I’ve gained a little more respect for him. Whether we’re seeing the real him or a good marketing man for his book, I don’t know. I’d be interested in meeting him on Thursday. (Quietly, I don’t really want to buy Laura’s book, but I would like to read his)

I’m not a big Bush fan, but I respect him for not criticizing President Obama. That shows a lot of class on his part (unlike Dick Cheney who is just a load of wet steaming garbage).
I do like Laura Bush (even if she has questionable taste in men).

Stu Padass…I can see your point. Compared to you, neither of them have really done much with their lives. I mean, they are only worth about 20 million each. I guess it’s from being dumb as hell, right?

To all of you stupid rednecks, remember President Obama was elected by the people while GW Bush was appointed by the supreme court!!!! LOL Then he scared all of you about we are going to be attacked by those evil people in middle east and you went out and appointed him again because he couldnt get elected based upon his record….how sad!

Steve,

Really? You, like most Libs, have a basic lack of understanding when it comes to the US constitution. GWB won every recount……and as such, he won Florida’s electoral votes. So, in effect, the US constitution was responsible for the election of GWB.

Hell if your Democratic Party stooge Al Gore had won his so-called home state, he’d been elected. Fortunately for the rest of us, the people of the great state of Tennessee saw through his Marxist BS.

Well, Bush tax cuts been in place since 2001 to create jobs, what next? 2 more yrs of jobs losses to 3rd world countries? and 2 million jobs lost. Do the math. Newt Gringwich plagurized Bush book for Bush.
No secrets here.

George W. Bush was an American President for Americans. Illegals and plantation inhabitants aren’t expected to like him. He wan’t their President.

A TRUE American supports the present and past president..All negative responses on both sides are truly sad and serve NO purpose.

Hey all you whining lefty liberal Socialists out there: your man Obama has turned out to be the worst President in modern times! He’s even worse than Jimmy Carter, and that is really saying something. Obama is an empty suit. No conviction, no passion, no leadership, no guts. Bush, on the other hand, had all of these attributes. The problem is that the leftist media portrayed him as an idiot, and you fell for it. Oration doesn’t equal leadership.

Wow! I thought this article was about the Bushes; not President Obama. Some of you probably dream about Obama since you make him a part of every discussion. It is possible to dislike someones politics and not hate the person you know. Admittedly, I was ready for Bush to step down from office, but I think that he and Mrs. Bush display a lot of class -something that most of you bloggers seem to know nothing about!

I am sorry, but what does Obama have to do with the fact George W Bush was the biggest retard, half-wit, panty-waste that has ever been in office? You can hate Obama all you want, makes no difference to me, but facts are facts, W was and is and will always be remembered as a complete idiot.

I find it ironic that people think the Bush’s are dumb when we have a president and a first lady that are not that bright and only got into school because of affirmative action.
Other than the first lady’s arms, what has she contributed?
