FOD

I realize I am late today.  Sorry, life keeps getting in the way of blogging.

And, a few weeks ago I mentioned how tired I was of political matters.  Obama stinks, and pointing it out week after week is tiring, but FOD is still very much 'celebrated' in my home each Monday.

Here is an upbeat FOD topic:
Political opposites turned friends, former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush launched a new scholars program at four presidential centers with an opening act that might have been mistaken for a comedy routine...

The 42nd and 43rd presidents joined together to announce the Presidential Leadership Scholars program, a partnership between the Clinton, Bush, George H.W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson presidential centers. At a time of partisanship and gridlock, both presidents said they hoped the scholars program would attract people in business, public service and the military interested in learning about presidential decision-making and applying it to their own careers.
Clinton revealed that he and Bush would speak twice a year during Bush's second term, 30-to-45 minute conversations about policy and politics. While they didn't always agree, Clinton said he never talked about their discussions and said the talks "meant a lot to me." 
Two men, with both faults and successes, both recognizing that their unique shared experience as president could lead to shared ideas and positive programs for society.

Obama doesn't give two shits about the American people.  And, I really can't foresee any living former presidents that would want to have any sort of relationship with him.  Heck, at this point, even Carter recognizes what a pariah Obama is and wouldn't want to tarnish his reputation by hanging out with him.
