Dubya’s Sway and Smiles to the Battle Hymn is My Favorite Thing About Today

There are times when I low-key miss the George W. Bush presidential years. Ok I admit, the only thing I miss about him is the ability to lambast him. Dubya was the guy who invited everyone to the kegger in college and was a BEAST at beer pong. He was not supposed to run to the store, let alone run a country. But he did. For 8 years. And ruined a lot of shit. The only joy we had was in making fun of him because he is so laugh-at-able.

Dubya Dance

He’s been mostly quiet and out the spotlight during the Obama administration’s time in office so we ain’t heard or seen too much Dubya. He makes his triumphant return, doe.

There was a memorial service for the five Dallas police officers who were killed last week, and POTUS Barack Obama and FLOTUS Michelle were in attendance. Next to them were their predecessors: Dubya and Laura Bush. During the singing of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, which has a chorus of “Glory, Glory Halleluyah” number 43 got his sway and smile in as they all held hands.

It might not be appropriate but it surely is HILARIOUS. Let’s watch and break this down:

Posted by CNN on Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Lawd, we can’t take Dubya NOWHERE. When I tell you I have watched this thing about 15 times, I am not lying. It is the gift that keeps on giving and I have cackled every single time I watched it.

First of all, Laura looks like she is just fed up of his shit. Like she’s thinking: “Why do I even take him places? Why do I let him out the house, Fatha Gawd?”

President Obama is on the other side like “My name is Bennett and I ain’t in it.” See, he knows how to act. Michelle deserves an award for not snatching her hand away and maintaining her composure as she babysits the grown toddler next to her. Dubya over there swaying like it got windy. Sir, stahp! She looks like she wants to pop him in the head and tell him to sit his ass down. Especially since he’s carrying on and tryna include her in his shenanigans by swinging his arms all high.

YOU KNOW the only reason he didn’t start stomping across the stage marching is because Laura and Michelle had that death grip on him cuz he was one loose hand from pop locking all over that stage. Bless the women for keeping him together. They are the real MVPs. Our girl, Auntie Shellie, especially with those biceps of steel. She has been working out all these years for such a time as this.

Dubya over there jolly as fuck, refusing to take any cues from anyone else. Ol’ “OMG SANTA I KNOW HIM!!!” face. Sir, why you got the Christmas spirit during a hymnal? You ‘posed to be solemn and introspective. Who didn’t tell him they were going to a funeral? Did someone forget to give him a list of rules? Over here getting his life from this like he’s at karaoke. This is clearly HIS JAM. It came on and he was like “OH THIS MY SHIT” and went to work on that sway. Did he catch the Holy Ghost? Why could he not stay still?

Dubya Dallas Memorial

This picture is the perfect capture. Laura looks like she is used to George’s shenanigans. Michelle looks like she is trying not to tell him to get his shit together. President Obama is like “I’m just here so I don’t get fined” and Dubya looks so happy with himself. Like TURN UP.

George W. is the guy your teacher assigns to be your “buddy” on the field trip in 2nd grade so you end up having NO FUN because you spend half the day at the Museum of Science and Industry chasing him around so he won’t step over the rail and ruin the giant diorama of the Chicago skyline. He’s the kid who ruined the $10,000 Lego display when his parent turned their back for 30 seconds. He is the one who Grandma has to mean mug from the other side of the pew on Sunday because he keeps acting up during sermon.

For 8 years, THIS dude had the nuclear codes. We almost ain’t make it. How many near misses? It’s okay. I don’t even wanna know. We just thank Jah for seeing us through.

Related, Laura Bush is a saint. A HUMANITARIAN, even. This is the shit she gotta put up with everyday. Her husband is just out here couth-deficient and simple as a broken rope. He needs a chaperone always.

Whew. But lemme go watch that video 5 more times so I can get my life.

Michelle George Get your Shit Together

Dubya: Can I just do cabbage patch?
Michelle: *through gritted teeth so only he can hear* George, you got one more time before I get you together! Try it if you want. 
Laura: Do you understand why I’m always tired? Anyway, thanks Michelle. 
Barack: LOLLLL I’ll just be over here. Behaving.

We really can’t take Dubya NOWHERE.

    FLOTUS glanced at Mrs. Bush trying to get a hint on what to do with Mr. Dubya. I saw Mrs. Bush trying not to look at FLOTUS but I bet she caught how it looked in the TV monitors.

    You know how when you were like 6 and your Auntie would snatch you by the arm super hard and then stare at you and say “if you don’t keep your narrow behind still” with her teeth clinched and her lips barely moving….that’s the look FLOTUS had. She was 2 seconds from getting him all the way together!

        The Bush speech was excellent, I suggest that you read the text if you haven’t already, These slain policemen were innocent victims of racial hatred, which is what caused the lunatic to shoot them in the first place. Your comments above about “white folks” are racist. I would never speak about “black folks” the way you have spoken about “white folks” above. We are all brothers and sisters, children of God and until this division ends, we are trapped in a vicious circle of hatred that is only growing and making our world even uglier. Two wrongs never, ever make a right.

          Do you really believe that ‘we are all brothers and sisters and children of God’?!? By slipping ‘alllivesmatter’ into this by using it as your name suggests otherwise. I don’t believe that they meant anything racist in their comment. They were highlighting the differences that are quite apparent. It’s funny, though, that some people want to come into this space screaming all kinds of racism when people are just highlighting the truth. Yes, all of the speeches were touching and what President Bush did was out of the ordinary for such a somber occasion.

      I agree with you Jennifer. I think he felt the Holy Spirit. It is endearing the one with his power and wealth is close enough to God to feel the Spirit. He may have felt a little embarrassed that he couldn’t keep still, so he tried to smile and laugh with the other unmoved stiffs. Don’t quench the Spirit.

      It amazes me how little people know about Christianity and how willing they are to criticize Christian beliefs and culture.

      The Battle Hymn of the Republic is a deeply religious song based on the imagery of Revelation 14. The song is intended to remind men who die protecting freedom that they will soon be united with God in Heaven.

      “In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
      With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me.
      As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free
      While God is marching on.”

      The song literally calls upon people to march with joy…

      “He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
      He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
      Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
      Our God is marching on.”

      Bush was very emotional and shed real tears over the loss of life. But, for that final song, he was reminded of the joy that comes from knowing these officers are now in Heaven in the presence of God.

        Please go to another site with that comment. Black people cant speak freely in a forum about what interests US, without others criticizing and condemning our point of view of this world. Baby Bush’s administration allowed the global economy to be ruined. Outside of that, he is NOT a highly intelligent man; that can not be debated. He he’s NEVER exuded proper social skills, so this outburst is not a surprise.
        Who are you to say how amazing it is that SOME people aka the black people on this black site don’t understand Christian culture or beliefs. 95% of us grew up in the church. We grew up seeing people catch the Holy Ghost, weekly. Clearly, you, Dave Hiersekorn, don’t understand that culture.
        So his display wasn’t the divine spirit, it was a lack of social graces and decorum; which he has displayed over and over again.
        So please go somewhere else to break down Christian culture, beliefs and the presence of God. No explanation needed for the average reader of this site. Thanks.

      NIce try. Remember, this is the same guy who continued to read “My LIttle Goat” while our country was being destroyed, who failed to protect us thru 9/11. The same guy who (we now know) lied us into Iraq, slaughtering nearly 1 million, mostly civilians. The same guy who’s actions resulted in the loss of thousands of American soldiers. Who’s actions gave rise to ISIS. The same guy who re-introduced the world to torture. Holy Spirit? I think not. He’s oblivious. A sociopath incapable of empathy. The only way he can cope is by dancing in his bubble. (But a nicely written promo!)

Dubya was like this from day one and continues to lack fucks to give. I liked this quality about it and he made me smile yesterday.

  11. July 13, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    Dubya told her before they left the house: “Laura, if you wear them kitten heels outside I’mma cut a fool; don’t try me.”

    Michelle looks like she’s trying to refrain from yanking his stupid arm out of its respective stupid shoulder, prior to beating his stupid ass with it.

    And the side-eye. .. OMG THE EPIC SIDE-EYE that Michelle is throwing!!!

    My husband is Danish, and HE even caught it!

    I can’t stop laughing! I keep watching the 43rd President of the United States on stage getting jiggy like he’s at the club, invading people’s personal space, and grinning ear to ear at a… funeral? It’s like a nightmare only it was broadcast on CNN.

    Michelle’s face just says “Jesus, take the wheel!” Laura looks like “Jesus, take me now!” Barack is just glad he’s not in arm’s reach lest he get sucked into the rabbit hole of foolishness with his wife.

    The interesting thing is that the people for whom President Obama can’t do anything right, who spend their lives looking for the least little flaw in the Obamas to pounce on, have nothing to say about Bush straight clowning at a memorial service for slain police officers. Interesting…

    Even weirder, he spoke earlier in the program and seemed fine. Coherent. Not stumbling or pausing for a while between words, and I was thinking retirement had been good to him.

    Then he grabs Michelle’s hand and starts swinging their arms and swaying and puts on that goofy grin. Maybe he thinks it’s like some churches where swaying and kind of dancing to the music is not unusual, but it’s a funeral and the song is Battle Hymm of the Republic — nobody’s dance tune! It was the weirdest thing.

    Laura Bush — I always wondered how she stayed with that man, and the look on Michelle’s face? Like … This cannot possibly be happening. I must be having a weird dream. All these people are watching this solemn event, and I’m on stage with W and I think he’s trying to get me to dance with him?

  53. July 14, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Did you notice how President Obama does a little mercy swaying after he notices George W. doing the jitterbug thing? He slips him a mercy dance! So people don’t thing GW is completely uncouth!

    Barack is the best thing ever.

    On behalf of white males who haven’t busted a decent move since roller disco, I feel like I need to apologize for the Shrub.

    He looks like he’s following Miss Pam on Romper Room as an encephalic shut-in child.

    The SHADE being thrown by the FLOTUS when his half assed Glory to Jesus Electric Slide starts to interrupt her solitude is epic!! She’s like, “what in the hell….” And Laura is like. “gurl – behold my burden.”

    You know Barack and Michelle are breaking this out for pre-dinner entertainment – and will for a loooong time to come.

    Like others, I have coughed, wheeezed, peed on myself, and laughed so hard (I’m still laughing) my chest hurt.

    My thoughts were Mr. Rodger Neighborhood, immediately. Then Sesame Street, as a guest. The Bozo show popped into my mind also.

    Skip, skip, skip to my lou, Dubya! Skip man, skip.

    Michelle was like, no da hell you not. You might be able to do that shit at home, but ‘cher today! No sir, not today!

    Skip, skip, skip to my lou
