Awesome: Bush 41 rocks sweet pink socks at dedication of GWB Presidential Center

George H.W. Bush’s socks are always a crowd-pleaser, and his footwear selection was no exception today at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

The pink socks were a hit and so was the 41st president.


A shout-out to her grandpa (and his socks) from Jenna Bush Hager:


The socks now have their own Twitter account:

    Silent swipe at Code Pink. Under my foot.

    Notice the body positions of Bush 43, Clinton & Obama. Clinton & Bush standing close together & interacting. O, where he belongs: separated and alone.

    • ChelieinTX

      Nobody wants to stand too close to douchebag O.

    • rinodino

      Yes I notice that, I notice a lot of other differences as well with Obama and everybody else, hmmm I wonder what that could be? Would that have anything to do with him being where “he belongs” you know “separate” but equal? Hmmm

      • Heather_A

        Naw. Clinton and the Bushes like America ; Clinton maybe liked some Americans too much. I never get that feeling from Obama.

        Go get some Alpo, sparky; you’re the only one that ever hears the dogwhistle.

      • Lisa Dean

        WTF are you trying to say?

      • NRPax

        Let me guess; michael s is out of town so you’re stepping in to accuse people of racism? Give it a rest junior. The grownups are talking.

    • ⚔Christophuh⚔

      The Clintons and the Bushs HATE the Obamas.

    • Kate

      I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to notice that! Notice that W is even leaning away from O.

      Even though they campaigned for him, I don’t think the Clintons like the Obamas. I’m sure Hillary is still bitter about ’08.

  • Mike Merc

    Anyone check out the color of Barbara Bush’s socks? I mean they are kinda of old and maybe they got them switched.

  • Tucker Latham

    But what about the crease in his pants?

  • john

    H.W. is a badass. Flying avengers off of carriers in the Pacific in his late teens. Compare to a certain prez at the same age……

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Awesome how a man who flew planes, jumped out of them, headed the CIA, and worked his way up to the Vice-Presidency and Presidency, then went jumping out of planes again while 80 and retired, can still find ways to do something cool even at 88.

    Great man. What an honor for that fine soldier who gets to stand behind him and wheel him.

    • Justin Jurek

      That’s a marine my friend. Not to be nitpicky, but Marines HATE it when someone calls them “soldier”. (not a marine but I know this to be true).

    Nice socks!

    Had a little “missing Reagan” moment looking at the group shot.
