A Child After My Own Heart

Politically speaking, I've been completely open with y'all about my love of all things conservative.

And I've been completely open with the fact that I adore President George W. Bush.

And not to sound stalkerish, but I've even confessed that I have a picture of W on display in my living room. Well, that does sound a little stalkerish, but the picture is there none-the-less. It's from a speaking engagement he did in 2004 on social security that I was lucky enough to be able to attend. A friend of my Mom's was sitting really close to the stage and got his autograph, and that's how I got such a close-up shot.

I was just beside myself that I actually got to be in the same room as the President of the United States, and I was giddy like a school girl. Fast forward 6 years, and that picture is still on display in my living room.

The other night Jackson got to looking at the picture:

Jackson: "Mama, who is that up there in that picture?"
Me: "That's President George W. Bush. He used to be the President of the United States."
Jackson: "Why do you have his picture?"
Me: "I got to see him a few years ago and I really, really like him, so that's why I have his picture."
Jackson: "I want to go see him."
Me: "Well, he's not our President anymore. Obama is our President now."
Jackson: "But I don't want to see him because I don't like him."
Me: "Me either, sweetie. Me either."

He really is a child after my own heart...
