Ask for your wife’s advice and then do the opposite.

I listened to Laura Bush, the wife of the former president George W. Bush, coming to the defense of President Obama‘s back-to-school speech. At least she has some sense.

She sounds like a Democrat who is married to a conservative. Many questions come to mind about this woman: a woman who is clearly intelligent and has a lot of common sense. How did she marry someone such the opposite of her?

Certainly some of George W. Bush’s troubles did not come from her bad advice but rather from the people who surrounded the president. She certainly did not agree with her husband’s policies all the time. But, she was certainly her husband’s first adviser.

Did George W. Bush listen to his wife sometimes? I doubt it. As the Arabs of Egypt might say to him, “Ask for your wife’s advice and then do the opposite.”
