    •  Michelle Obama (10+ / 0-)

      has been consistently vocal about the fact that Laura Bush was extremely kind to her and her children.

      As to the Blair house business, the Obamas DID move in there a few days off their ideal schedule since former PM JOhn Howard of Australia was staying there as a guest of the Bushes.  As soon as they got him out, the Obamas moved in.

      I vote Democratic because I am a woman with self-respect , who rejects bigotry of all kinds, subscribes to science, believes in universal health care, embraces unions, and endorses smart internationalist foreign policy.

    •  To be fair, the Obamas were asking to (2+ / 0-)

      move in earlier than usual because they had left Chicago early, but Bush turn down the request because he already had the Australian PM Howard, who had clashed with Barack Obama.  They were allowed access as protocol, just not early like they asked for.

      We just didn't like the idea that the soon to be ex-PM was granted more hospitality than the incoming US president and his family.  However, the Obamas still had a nice place to stay, they just had to pay for it.
