George Bush takes on ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Pres. George W. Bush Takes Ice Bucket Challenge


Former President George W. Bush joined the ALS ice bucket challenge today, and he put his own "Dubya" spin on it.

Bush initially joked in the video posted to his Facebook page that participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge wouldn't be "presidential" and sat down to write a check instead. That's when his wife, the former first lady, jumped in to splash him anyway.

"That check is for me. I don't want to ruin my hairstyle," she said smiling.

Bush then nominated Bill Clinton, saying he was happy to give the gift of a cold bucket of water for Clinton's birthday, which was yesterday.

Have you done the ice bucket challenge yet? Tell us about it in the comments.

He was an earnest lover of the United States and you always knew he had the best interest of this nation. I miss that so much.

The haters of GWB just keep on coming with pure vitriol. Regardless of party affiliation, no sane person with any measure of knowledge could honestly say our country is doing well at home or abroad. If W found the cure for cancer the haters would continue to find a reason to both critize and malign him.
