bush worked on a segregationist campaign and then at PULL in Houston
Do those two things seem incongruous or is it just me. He worked for a racist and then out of the goodness of his heart went to help inner city kids in houston. Why doesn' t the press ask this question?

1. Maybe they are afraid of the answer.
Helen Thomas asked about the community service. Never got a straight answer.

2. Could it be because the Pull "volunteer"episode was court-ordered?

remember, there were rumors of a cocaine bust on GW.
There are blanks in his TANG in '72 that coincide with the rumored Bust.


Hummm....

3. Was this before or after his conversion?
It seems that after his conversion to Christianity Georgie actually went straight for a while. So it could be that he worked in Houston afterwards. Or it could be like the previous guy said, a court forced him to do it.

4. the 'conversion' was much later
i believe he was 40 when he gave up his 'youthful indescretions'

and it wasn't GOD so much as Laura putting her foot down.

5. asking about either one is not likely favorable
How do you pose the question:

So, after you worked for a well-known racist in Alabama .....

you did what? worked for a racist? can we expound upon that a bit, Mr. Prez

and, you said you were a uniter not a divider
go'on

1) Finding God for political expediency and 2) 911 for political expediency ... maybe he hasn't hit the Big Trifecta yet ... unless the stolen election should be in the #2 spot ...
