A White House Wedding?

Jenna Bush announced her engagment today, and I think it's wonderful. America could use a White House wedding.

Awww good for them!

While I am happy for them, part of me wonders if Bush isn't using this wedding to try and help his approval rating. It wouldn't be the first time in history (and I mean world history) that a wedding has been used to help someones favor. I mean, people love a wedding.

Now, before I get misunderstood here... I am NOT saying that's what it is. What I am saying is I hope that's NOT what it is... and that this is truly what both kids want and that they have a happy life together. That's all.

Yes, I'm sure, that's it, that is why she finally got ENGAGED to a guy she has been dating for YEARS.

I only have a few words to comment on this topic: blah blah blah blah.

Sorry I'm not a Bush Fan,, nor am I a fan of anything Bush.. Though she deserves loads of praise for having him as a father..

(Sorry didn't mean to start any bad vibes or feelings,, just my political expression of Bush)..

It's good to hear something positive towards the Bush girls. Better then them getting drunk or arrested, whatever else.

I didn't realise one of them was a teacher. She looks very happen

Why does political views even enter into whether or not Jenna should be happy?

When I first saw this thread, my ONLY reaction was - Good for them! I hope they have a long and happy life together.

Now, frankly...I'm a bit disgusted. Like she is not a full person, just an extension of this hated political figure.

Oh, my thought for Jenna still stands - as it would for anyone entering this exciting phase of their life. Except for the blurb about the Bush daughters being busted for alcohol (and how many of us drank before we were 21 when we were in college???), we haven't heard much from these girls. Good for her that she has graduated from college and managed a somewhat normal life being the daughter of the President. Good for her that she found love!

I really feel for any daughter or son who is going though high school/college with their father being President. As if boys aren't intimidated by girls enough. Come on - they've made movies about this! And no, it doesn't matter if it's Chelsea Clinton or Jenna Bush. That's a difficult time in a young lady's life anyway, and being that high profile through no fault or doings of your own has to make it even more difficult.

Please show me where she EVER got arrested. I would love to see it.
If not, don't say things that aren't true.

Oh my goodness the girl drank alcohol before she was of age. Is that is the worst you can come up with? I think the Bush girls parents did a darn good job raising them. All kids should have the loving family they do.

I agree with you Heidi.

I wish them many years of happiness!

First of all, I'm hope that she is very happy in her marriage and that her life can return to normal once her father is out of the office. It would be h*ll being raised at that age in the public eye.

Whatever controversy she has been through in the past was I'm sure played up by the media. I hope she has matured and has this part of her life behind her.

But I feel compelled to respond to this:

Just do a simple google search on "Jenna Bush arrested". It returns 667,000 hits.

Hello! That's NOT what I said!

I'm happy she's engaged and happy and excited about her wedding. Really, I'm very happy for her.

However, I'm hoping her father doesn't use *the wedding* to try and up his image. Like I said, everyone loves a wedding, and being that the wedding itself could happen before he leaves office... I'm hoping he doesn't turn it into a media spectacle in order to up his image... being that, if it happens at the end of his term, he'll leave office with everyone feeling all warm and fuzzy because we just had a white house wedding.

The point is, there are bigger issues facing our nation right now and I would hate to see his administration use the wedding to keep us busy so we forget about everything else going on - in the same way that the media likes to spend weeks on things like Anna Nicole Smith and Paris Hilton instead of the war, health insurance, etc.

Okay, so here's a picture of the two of them.

She's cute... IMO

He's..... very well dressed.

Thanks!

I'm sure she has matured also. The majority (hint: not all) do something wild and crazy at some point in their life during college - even if its stealing boys underwear from the laundry and running around with

Anyhoo she just became part of the news only because she's Bush's girl. I'm sure that at 25 she's turning her life from partying to starting a family whether or not she and her soon-to-be have children.

I must admit, the White House IS a lovely setting, for a wedding. If memory serves, there hasn't been one there, since the President's sister Doro was married, during their father's term.

As for using this wedding, to raise the President's approval ratings, BOTH of Richard Nixon's daughters were married, at the White House and look what happened to HIM.

Best of luck, to both of them.

That's true. How many can say that they got married at the White House?
post #17 of 22
Good for her!!! The Bush family needed some happy news. A reception at the White House would be very unique.
post #18 of 22
I personally don't believe in weddings or marriage or even celebrating such a sad (IMO) occasion however,if they both wish to ruin their lives by getting married, then so be it. I wish them the best. As far as a White House Wedding, I could care less. Not everyone loves a wedding. I think they're as sad as funerals.

Lol! Cute - for someone who looks so disturbingly like her father...poor thing.

It must be very, very difficult to grow up under such scrutiny - not her so much, but it wouldn't be easy to have a father who is President - especially one who's stuffed it up so royally.

I doubt, though, that he is anything to her but Dad, and that's nice. I hope she and her fiance are very happy, as I would for anyone who is engaged, and if Bush wants to use it to make people look at him in a more positive way then I wouldn't blame him. There's no chance that a wedding would have any permanent positive change in people's opinion of him, but it might be nice to detract from politics for a while (yes, this really is me saying this) and just celebrate young love and future happiness. Goodness knows, Americans surely need something to feel positive about when they hear the name `Bush'.

I have always thought Bush was really handsome.

Hope, you have such a sad, cynical opinion of marriage. Even worse than mine.

I've been married twice. I KNOW better than to get married again. I honestly think that any woman who chooses to get married is giving up a lot of who she is, in order to take on HIS identity, and I think for most men, marriage is not a natural state of being, just a safe way for him to be able to have children, and a free and "assured" love life.

The idea of sharing ones life with another is just so unnatural. We aren't meant to be monogamous.

Hope, I agree with your above post, except for the last two sentences.
