Cowboy Bush Is Scared of Horses?

All Hat and Five Cattle

This this new nugget of info about our swaggering faux-redneck president underscores why it is important to put quotemarks around the word “ranch” when describing Pres. Bush’s vacation home in the hinterlands of Crawford, Texas:

Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a “windshield cowboy” — a cowboy who prefers to drive — and “the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life”.

He recalled a meeting in Mexico shortly after both men had been elected when Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a “big palomino” horse.

Mr Fox, who left office in December, recalled Mr Bush “backing away” from the animal.

”A horse lover can always tell when others don’t share our passion,” he said, according to the Washington Post…

The article also points out that there are five cows and no horses on the Bush “ranch.”

    This is old news that is never remarked upon by corporate media. Did you also know that Bush bought his “ranch” about six months before he announced his candidacy for pres? Or that Laura killed a lady in a driving accident in which she was at fault? Look it up! There is a lot one can find if one wants to(including supposed “informed” progressives.
