Did GWB's wife (I can't remember her name, Laura?) kill someone in a drunk-driving accident when she was a teenager? Somebody mentioned it in a coversation last weekend and it sounded familiar, but is it true?

It is partly true, and apparently had a huge impact on her personality. Alcohol was not involved - it was a pure accident. She went through a stop sign and hit a car that was in the intersection, killing one of the occupants, who happened to be at least a very good friend of hers, and possibly her boyfriend (depending on who you believe). After the accident, she became much more shy, cautious, and introverted - as a teenager, she was apparently more like her daughters than you might expect.

She described the whole thing on the Today show or similar last week.
Thanks (nm)Dwayne Barry

Actually at a speech he gave for Kerry last week, he almost put his phat foot in his mouth. He was relating the story about Kerry's heroism and how he went back to retrieve a a GI that had fallen overboard during a firefight. I can't find the exact quote, but he said something about "John Kerry won't leave soemone behind do die" or "drown"? Something to that effect. Too bad Kerry wasn't there for Maryjo Kopechne!
If the '60s are fair game let's talk Nixon. LOL! Good stuff!!BottomBracketShell

He is derided by liberals even in his grave. Teddy Boy is current news. He is a Senator in our congress who killed another person and who delayed telling authorities until the next day. The poor girl drowned because he was more than likely drunk. I know it's of no consequence to you, but I am sure her family and friends think of her each time they see his phat a$$ on TV giving some sanctimonious speech about right and wrong!
"More than likely drunk"? Like Bush in '76?czardonic

And still won't come clean about it.

Of course, we know he is a coward with no integrity, so that is hardly news.

At least Laura is honest about it. Better-half indeed.

appalled at what I thought of CMB selling her vote/support, calling my assessment slanderous. How about providing proof for your slander, I mean allegation of cocaine use? Or don't the same rules apply to Republicans?
How about proving Bush fulfilled his Nat. Guard duty?czardonic

Yep. And its working!czardonic

That honorable discharge is receiving some long overdue scrutiny -- and it ain't looking good for our President AWOL.
