    Columba Bush and her husband are active Catholics
    OK, I do know that unless a candidate is a Morman, a Catholic or a Muslim, religion doesn't matter unless they also happen to be a Democrat.

    •  mysteriously enough (8+ / 0-)

      Mysteriously enough wikipedia doesn't include negative information about a politician's wife.  How odd, almost like someone edited it.

      Here's an article:

      http://www.independent.co.uk/...

      Mrs Bush had been on a shopping trip to Paris, and she seems to have got a little carried away.

      She bought $19,000 (pounds 11,875) worth of clothes and jewellery, but she didn't admit it to Customs at Atlanta airport: she declared only $500. "So we asked her for receipts," said a spokesman for US Customs, "and they were a little bit more." She had to pay a fine of $4,100, putting herself and her husband, Jeb, on the television and in the newspapers for days.

        Every one of their kids has been the subject of a criminal complaint.  

        Stalking an ex-girlfriend for the eldest.

        Prescription drugs abuse and falsifying prescriptions for the middle child,

        Property damage resulting from doing donuts in the lawn of an ex-girlfriend's father for the youngest.

          wake up with a hangover and maturity all at once, fry some eggs (or, as they say, huevos), and all will be well.

          •  Yeah.... (0+ / 0-)

            And ALL will have their 'escapades' expunged from any mention by inquisitive reporters, who will be fired if before-mentioned escapades are exposed.
            And then we'll get another dose of 2001-2009 shoved at us.
            God help us all.
            The Gorgon spoke the truth....this Country has had quite enough of the Bushes and their ilk.

          Two of the three kids on something involving lashing out at their ex-girlfriends?

          Oh, this bodes SO WELL for how Jeb would treat women's issues in the WH. (See Paul, Rand.)

          Just like everything else about the Bushes....the real stuff is deleted and the fake stuff inserted as the 'revised' truth.
          This family does NOT have the country's best interests in mind.  
          Never did, never will.

        The explanation, he says, is that she had spent more than she should have done and didn't want him to know. [...] The trip was, ironically, his gift to her [...]
        So she lies, and then thinks he won't notice when he looks at the bills?
        Mrs Bush, from Leon, a town in central Mexico, has neither sought nor found the limelight in the past. She met her husband when she was 16, and found her role model in his mother, Barbara, not political wives like Hillary Clinton.
        Learned it from Barbara, did she?  Maybe she should have paid a little more attention to Hillary.
