Come On Aggies! Cheer For The President! He's Almost As Good As Your Football Team!
It's not easy being a George W. Bush supporter these days. Even at Texas A&M.
The Aggies, of course, have the somewhat dubious honor of having Bush deliver a speech to their December graduates. If there's anyplace in the US outside of Utah, or maybe Kennebunkport, where this event would go over well, it's A&M.
After all, it's the home of the George H.W. Bush Library.
But the Facebook page touting the visit seems to be having an attack of the grumpies.
Here's the intro:
Now not everyone can get tickets to hear him speak, but I want us to give our president (for he will still be our president at that time!) a royal aggie welcome. I'm talking signs, banners, those loud hand-clapper things, the whole shabang. Please, if you don't like him, go home and enjoy your family...don't make a ruckus. This is strictly to show our support for our president, not a chance for you to show how much you hate him. You took full advantage of that for the past 8 years, and now...LOYAL FRIENDS OF W's! Let's show how much we love him!!!!!!!!!!
He speaks at 10:30, so let's meet at 9:00! Reed Arena! Bring signs and lots and lots of love.
oh and did i mention...don't come to this if you don't like the man...no one is making you. and stop writing on this wall.

Yeah, come on, you 77 percent of the country that doesn't think Bush is just OMG the best-est president ever -- stop writing on this wall!!
As a rallying cry, it's right up there with Reagan's "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
Alas, the wall is still getting entries like "Is it OK if I wave just one finger instead of five?"
Now, now. Remember the golden words: "For he will still be our president at that time!"
