The new Bush “White House”

George Bush brings all new meaning to the word “White House.”  Pres. Bush got himself new digs in an upscale Dallas suburb called Preston Hollow. Just 8 years ago — not 20, not 40, not 60, not in the throes of the civil rights movement or segregation, no, just 8 years ago, someone like Colin Powell or Secretary of State Rice couldn’t couldn’t move next door to the President. Why? Not because they couldn’t afford it — although most of us in the midst of this financial crisis can’t (thank you very much, Mr. President). No, it’s because of the following legal covenant, the text of which can be found by clicking here:  meaders_estates_covenant1. In case reading the whole thing makes you vomit, here is Section 11 of the covenant: “Said property shall be used and occupied by white persons only except these covenants shall not prevent occupancy by domestic servants of different race or nationality in the employ of a tenant.”

Hopelessly out of touch. That’s the real Bush legacy.

P.S. Congrats on finally saying the “R” word. It’s so refreshing to finally hear you say that we’re in a recession instead of the usual political double-speak that goes something like this: ‘well, the economy is growing at a more moderate pace than we would have hoped which is leaving a lot of people in the uncomfortable position of having to re-double their efforts to find that true can-do American spirit that will lift us out of these hard economic times.’

  1. Now that the elections are over, it is clear that PoliTalk has moved on to Truth and Justice for all. (Isn’t that Superman’s tag line?)

    By the way, let’s have so discussion on this morning’s revelation that Lynch’s Thain is pursuing a tidy $10 MILLION DOLLAR BONUS for averting a worse loss than it could have been. Yikes. I absolutely made the wrong career decisions. I’ve focued on getting bonuses for positive performance. I didn’t know I was supposed to be getting a bonus for failing.
