George Bush Sr. Heckled at Houston Restaurant


George H.W. Bush was heckled while dining at a restaurant in Houston.

Writes the heckler on YouTube: "As if a restaurant's shrine to a mass murderer and featured menu items in the name of the diabolical traitor to America weren't enough, George Bush Sr. himself arrived when I was eating lunch with friends. Although I'm aware of many of his countless crimes against humanity, my mind went blank when it came to speaking out. It's a wonderful thought for me to imagine these killers being scolded each and every time they appear in public."

  1. Eh, the guy goes off into NWO/illuminati/conspiracy territory. Papa Bush actually comes off looking good.

    Also I wonder if his security detail is secret service or private security he's paying for. Lord knows he and all the former presidents are wealthy enough to pay for their own.

  2. This nut job can only be a libertarian.

  3. All living ex-Presidents have a Secret Service detail paid for by us.
    A giant waste of tax dollars.
    Bravo to this guy in Texas for calling him out.

  4. George W. Bush is the first American President of the modern era NOT to get lifetime Secret Service protection. From Bush on the President will receive 10 years of protection.

    Jimmy Carter, George HW Bush, and Bill Clinton will all receive lifetime protection.

  5. Milhous discontinued his SS security detail in 1985.

    As tasteless as this is, the bush family is a cancer on this country's history. They are poison.

    That said, this sure isn't going to get him to reflect on a life spent enthusiastically undermining this country's founding principles.

  6. This guy sounds like Danny McBride! LOL!

  7. Seriously? He's a killer how? For liberating Kuwait from annexation by Hussain and his crime family? Bush Snr. steps in an prevents the occupation of a sovereign nation, a member of the United Nations and the Arab League, and he's a killer? Bullshit. That guy needs to get real.

  8. thanks davyg for being sane, balanced and not instinctively hateful. i completely agree.

  9. I'm guessing the people that are equating Bush Snr with W. are too young to realize that H.W. was the last of the moderate Republican presidents. And a decent man too.

  10. I think it makes sense to provide former presidents with lifetime secret service protection. Though sometimes it's pointless. Lady Bird Johnson used her guys at the end to carry her luggage. George Senior was rather moderate, but he's gone very right wing in his old age (and he put in a lot of time with the Carlyle Group). Have you ever seen any of his post-presidency speechs? He totally rabid and irrational.

  11. I guess we are all guaranteed freedom of speech -- and everyone is certainly entitled to his/ her own opinion, but does he really have to use the profanity? How does he think he came across to the other patrons of the restaurant? Does he think he changed anyone's mind about Bush after his hissy fit? Jane Roe is right -- he came off more like a paranoid conspiracy theorist than someone with sound arguments (much less a sound mind)

  12. I admire the guy who spoke out against Bush. Yeah, he comes off pretty strong, but you know what? He's right.

  13. About as effective as Lane Hudson trying to call out Bill Clinton.

    Time and a place, folks, time and a place.

  14. It doesn't matter whether he's "right" or not. Ranting and swearing like a lunatic just makes him look/sound like a disaffected nutjob, best ignored. I feel bad for people who share his point of view -- this guy just dealt them a setback.

    Posted by: Dave | Jan 11, 2010 7:23:28 PM

  15. This is incredibly tacky, and I wouldn't complain if this guy, whose inflated ego is probably telling him right now, "You're a hero for doing this. You really, really are" got a quick punch in the head from the Secret Service.

    What a lunatic.

  16. "I think it makes sense to provide former presidents with lifetime secret service protection."

    It makes sense for them to have protection, yes, but do we have to pay for it?

    The new rule that goes into effect for GWB and all presidents after him was enacted because modern presidents make boatloads of money after their presidency from speaking fees, book deals, etc. They can afford to pay for their own security.

  17. This guy just came off like a tool. Profanity and conspiracy theories will only get you so far. Same with disorderly conduct.

  18. @Rodney Wollam: George HW Bush was a 'decent man'?! When asked about gay rights, Bush Sr. stated "I just wish it would go away." If that is your definition of a 'decent man', then you and I will never agree on what makes a man decent.

  19. @PeterP: When Bush Sr. was president, gay marriage wasn't even an issue. Though he and I disagree on many issues, I believe- in his heart- he had hatred for no Americans.

  20. Rodney's a true believer! What about his involvement in propping the hussein regime up in the beginning? Go to church...please. Clutch sarah palin's book close to your breast, and see no evil.

    Posted by: TANK | Jan 11, 2010 10:05:32 PM

  21. Have we really reached the point where it's mandatory we hate everyone we disagree with? Really?

    Posted by: Rodney Wollam | Jan 11, 2010 10:08:45 PM

  22. Some disagreements are too important to have any other responsible reaction. Human rights and government corruption are two of them.

    Posted by: TANK | Jan 11, 2010 10:23:39 PM

  23. I've never heard anyone refer to hate as responsible.

    Posted by: Rodney Wollam | Jan 11, 2010 10:27:39 PM

  24. Those "magnetic" topics (re: dr. williams) about which these disagreement occur are such that neutrality or civility are symptoms of mental illness (e.g., sociopathology, if that still exists as a classification) than etiquette.

    Posted by: TANK | Jan 11, 2010 10:28:51 PM

  25. Yeah, rodney intolerance of intolerance is intolerance, and intolerable! Those poor downtrodden homophobes. Simpleton. AU revoir, douchebag!
