The 7 Types of Comments on George W. Bush’s Instagram

Photo: @georgewbush

Perhaps hoping to capitalize on his sudden, bipartisan popularity as an animal-portrait-painting artiste, George W. Bush joined Instagram over the weekend. It turns out he hasn’t really gone soft: In the Bushiest of fashions, his debut photo (seen above) was taken at Southern Methodist University and hashtagged #PonyUp #GunsUp. (The second was on a golf course.) And in case there was any doubt that W. remains polarizing, a quick scan of the comments reveals that history has not yet been rewritten entirely in his favor, and passions still run high. We’ve categorized public opinion, as expressed beneath each image, below.

The Overexcited/Incomprehensible:

My motto back then was “I’d rather be ” stuck in the Bushes than covered with Clinton’s Gore”! So blessed to have a truly Godly man that was serving as president! His class in dealing with people of ALL walks of life shows what a “true” Christian is! kauaikids - a day ago

Thank you President Bush for serving as president of our great nation! May God bless your beautiful Laura and you beyond measure! You stared the enemy in the eye and did not blink! I am ever grateful for your fortitude! I so remember the morning my son called and asked us to turn on the TV, just in time to see the 2nd airplane headed into the TwinTowers! My son who was also my Pastor for 15 years took me to hear you speak at the Pomona Fair! At that time, I knew you would serve us well. My son has been called home to The Lord since but I can tell you that he felt you were a real man of God!! kauaikids - a day ago
