“We are surely a kinder and gentler nation because of you” Obama toasts Bush

Kevin-Lamarque-Reuters

Ok, war is hell, art is life and the truth is often scarier than fiction…

A picture, they say is worth a thousand words – and the picture above, (by Kevin Lamarque / Reuters,) is a virtual novel, a novel about power and politics in America today.

And so, what are words worth? To ensure that the above relationship be not misunderstood, President Barack Obama said out loud, and we quote verbatim: “On behalf of all of us, let me just say that we are surely a kinder and gentler nation because of you, and we can’t thank you enough,” referring to former President George HW Bush.

The article, which details the encounter and Bush’s “rare and warm (White House) appearance” to hand out the 5000th Points of Light Foundation award appears on the NBC Politics website, linked here.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for I Claudius.

(thx, Steve!)
