Bush Compares Raising Twins To War

CHARLESTON, West Virginia (AP) -- President Bush says between going to war and raising twins, he'd choose war.






Bush's visit to West Virginia last week included a chat with Bob Kiss, Democratic speaker of the West Virginia House of Delegates.

While they hail from different parties, they found plenty to talk about -- although while both have twins, Kiss' 5-week-old twin boys aren't quite old enough to cause much trouble.

Kiss told Bush that if he wasn't doing anything the next morning, he could come by for their 3 a.m. feeding. Kiss said Bush joked, "I've been to war. I've raised twins. If I had a choice, I'd rather go to war."

Bush's 19-year-old twin daughters have had trouble with the law since their father became president.

Barbara Bush pleaded no contest in June to a charge of minor in possession of alcohol. She and her twin sister, Jenna, were ticketed after their visit to a Mexican restaurant in Austin in May. Police said Jenna tried to use someone else's ID to buy liquor; a judge convicted her of underage drinking in an unrelated April incident.

No that statment is putting some light on Mr. Bushs brain. Maybe he should have spent more time on raising his dughters before they got into trouble?

I have twins, and I agree with him  Smile. J/K I love my twin girls, and I am under no illusions that they won't get into some trouble. Every kid does. And if underage drinking is the least one, I'll be happy. Let's see ,they are both in college and they aren't pregnant (yet) sounds like he is doing pretty good to me. You have kids?

I agree with Toadpipe (and Bush!). Any man who has teenage daughters (including me) would know that the old adages "Daughter's are God's revenge on men for being men", and "Fathers live in the fear that their daughters will meet someone like them" are absolutely true.

Bush's daughters are just taking everything out of life. They shouldn't be punished for that Big grin

The 21 year drinking limit is so idiotit anyway. You can cause hundreds of times of more harm by driving a car than drinking. Yet you can drive a car in the US at 16 and drink at 21...

Wise decisions.

I'm no Bush fan. But on this non-issue, cut the guy some slack for God's sake.

This was in no way to be a flame war.

Jenna is the greatest thing about the current Presidency.

Well I think it is in bad taste for the media to go after peoples personal lives. Whether it's an affair or a naughty daughter, it's none of our business.
However, if it was any other teenager, they would have got in to a lot more trouble.
This goes to show that Bill and Hillary Clinton are much better parents because Chelsea conducts herself in a much more dignified manner. This shows that she was raised right! Parenting was Bill, Hillary's, George and Laura's most important job before politics. I am sure if it were the other way around, you Bush apologist would would be ripping the Clintons apart.

I am 17 years old and my parents let me drink while I am at home or out to dinner. They say I am going to do it with friends anyway so I should enjoy a nice glass of wine with my dinner.

174thfwff, that's really cool of your parents to do that. So many parents here in the US have hang-ups from alcohol.

That's the biggest load of hot air I've ever heard.

I have friends who had some strict upbringing, and when they went away to college they'd drink, smoke and **** every night.

It's all up to the individual to decide on how they're going to act, not the parents.

Atually, Real_High, I disagree with your comment that it's not the media's to comment on the Bush Twin's private lives.

This article from CNN pretty well sums up my views on this issue:

Are the Bush Twins Public Figures?

I'm not impressed with both girls and Chealsea. They seem to have this "high and mighty world revolves around them bitchy my parent's pay for everything so I don't have to work a day in my life complex"

I hate women who smoke(I'vew kissed one on the lips and it was NASTY AS HELL!!!)

I despise Bush, but all college kids drink. I say that they lower the drinking age here to 18 (preferably 16). It's screwed up that at 18, I'm old enough to go to war and see people get ripped apart by bombs and machine guns, but I'm not old enough to go out and have a drink. There's nothing wrong with getting drunk every once and a while, as long as you don't hop in a car and kill someone else or yourself.

I'll be the first to agree that it's a stupid law, cba, but the fact remains that is is the law and they knew that and they still willfully chose to disregard it. And apparently, their father, Presdient Bush agrees with the law or he wouldn't have passed a zero tolerance ordinance while he was governor.

If we only obey those laws that we feel are just and ignore the others, there would be no point in havings laws at all.

25 DC10Tony : "Who said strick upbringing was good?" Um, well, let's see, YOU did, in that post I quoted.
26 Superfly : Hmmm, well to compare the Clintons parenting to the Bushs is a stretch and I can understand why DC10Tony is shooting holes in RealHigh's argument. How
27 Saint-Exupery : This question may be quit stupid, but didn't Bush enjoy the war in texas national Guard at home ?
