Why Women Support President George W. Bush
Written by guest blogger Patti Dahlstrom of Babes for Bush.

If you ask why women like President Bush, the reasons are probably parallel to why men like him. As one woman, I can tell you the reasons I like him.

George W. Bush loves and respects his mother, Barbara; he loves and respects his wife, Laura. According to Laura, his best friend is Condaleeza Rice, another strong, intelligent woman. He truly enjoys and admires strong women; he “gets” women and appreciates them, knowing their equal importance in the scheme of things. Women like this quality in him. This speaks to the strength of his spirit over ego.

George W. Bush is a man of his word. He has to make the tough decisions; still, he has stood by his principles. Even when it has not been popular, he has walked the road less traveled. When has it ever been popular to walk the higher road? An Atlanta radio host, Martha Zoller, said that he “means what he says and says what he means.” That’s George W. Bush, and that speaks to his courage over fear.

Some of his decisions have called for the ultimate sacrifice from our men and women in the military. This, I am sure, has been the most difficult of all his burdens to bear. When I spoke with President Bush at a fundraiser in March, I gave him a message from my nephew, a Marine Lieutenant. He was extremely concerned, sending a message in return expressing gratitude for my nephew’s service. President Bush feels deeply about each and every one who is serving, those we’ve lost and those still in peril. He is profoundly conscious of the Americans in uniform. This speaks to the weight his heart carries for the sake of all Americans and freedom in the world.

When you meet him, he understands that you might be nervous because he is the president, and he puts you at ease with his kindness. He knows it is not about him, the man, but the office of the presidency, which is overwhelming. This speaks to his understanding.

Lastly, though certainly foremost in this woman’s mind, is the honor with which President Bush claims his relationship with God. The founding fathers of this country not only spoke of their belief in God with pride, but also based the foundation of the United States on their spiritual principles. George W. Bush approaches that office, the most powerful position in this world, every morning with that same sense of responsibility to a higher power. He never stands so tall as when he kneels in prayer. He knows that to have any hope of handling the power entrusted to him, he must entrust himself to God. This speaks to his humility.

Bob Woodward was on Larry King one night saying that he had interviewed many presidents, and that George W. Bush was the only one who was telling the American people the truth about what he knew. This speaks to his sincerity.

President Bush is easy to trust because he is telling the truth. His love of America, its people, and its principle of freedom inspire confidence in his leadership. The thoughtfulness with which he carries the burdens of this country, while not allowing the attitudes of others to deter him from that true and difficult course, helps us all do the hard things more gracefully.

Women trust him because he trusts women (and he looks good in that flight suit).

Women like and will vote for President Bush to continue running this country because he is a good and courageous man, and, history will prove, a great president.

God bless America; God bless President George W. Bush.

    Nah, women fall for serial killers all the time. That’ll be why.

  • (and he looks good in that flight suit).
    yeah, i’d fuck him in that flight suit.

    jack e. jett

  • HW Saxton Jr.

    Jack E, I don’t think you would both fit
    into that suit.

  • hal:

    you know..you are right. we would have to cover ourselves with that mission accomplished sign. that would cover most of my beer gut.


  • RJ


    Just scribble out “Mission Accomplished” and write in “Bareback Sex”… :-p

  • boomcrashbaby

    I clicked on some of the pictures of members, on the babesforbush site. Now I’m kinda confused as to what a babe is.

  • RJ

    You? Confused about what an attractive woman is?

    Shocked. I’m shocked. 😉

  • boomcrashbaby

    yet another definition you all keep changing.

  • RJ

    Here’s a clue:

    Jenna Jameson is HOT.

    “Ripley” from Alien is NOT.

  • You had to have liked the one in the boxing ring…

  • boomcrashbaby

    that sure wasn’t jenna I saw.

  • bhw

    Omigod, it reads like a freakin’ Harlequin romance novel over there. Here’s one woman’s description of meeting Bush:

    There he stood. Not quite as tall as I’d imagined, probably about six feet, still I was surprised by how handsome he was, much more so than in photos or on TV. As I glided toward him (I don’t remember walking), every thought I brought to share with him evaporated in his presence. I got about two feet from him, stopped, looked up at his gorgeous face, and said, “I love you.”

    He reached out his hands to this childlike creature, gently pulled me toward him, and gave me a hug. It was the kind of hug you get from a family member who really loves you and hasn’t seen you in a while. Oddly enough, it felt familiar, and I felt safe with my cheek resting against his chest. It lasted for several seconds and then he said, “In that case, let’s get a really good picture of the two of us together.”

    The needle on the unintentional comedy meter is PINNED!

  • boomcrashbaby

    yeah EWG. sigh. the initial point, that was missed wasn’t so much who fits into the category of ‘babe’ or not, as much as it was just using the term babe. Is the political arena ready for a lobbying group with the word babe in it? Is there some Studs for Bush that perhaps gets a little less coverage? Looking at their website and seeing they are serious made it funnier, actually. I always thought women were offended by being referred to as babe, generically, or en masse. So it was surprising to see it in use.

  • Feminists hate the “babe” word. I doubt those women fall into that particular category.

    It’s kind of like when you go to one of those diners where the waitress calls all the guys “honey” (You want some more coffee, honey?). I doubt they would be offended if you answered them with a “sure thing, doll”.

  • bhw

    I think they’re borrowing an idea from the gay community and taking back the term “babe”!

    Or something.

  • RJ

    Oh, chicks love being called babe. It makes them feel young, and hot.

    They don’t like being called scag or cunt though. Or bush pig. Or red river hog. Or slut-bunny. Or too-ugly-to-be-a-hooker…

    Some things, you learn the hard way…

  • Of course, those waitresses probably aren’t members of a lobbying organization, but my point was that not all women, even in these PC days, are offended by such terms.

  • bhw

    I think those “babes” have been watching too many daytime soaps.

  • boomcrashbaby

    So it’s that small town community appeal factor? Babe implies appearance, and I don’t see what appearance has to do with political leaning. You know what I mean? Blue Eyes for Kerry? Short Men for Bush? I guess it’s just odd to see it in a political context.

  • No luck finding “Studs for Bush”, but I did find a guy named Studs Terkell who writes over at progressivetrail.org.

  • boomcrashbaby

    Oh, chicks love being called babe

    Do babes love being called chicks?

  • How about this?

  • I wonder if Studs Terkell has offed his parents for naming him that? Man, that’s a horrible moniker to have to carry around.

  • bhw

    Now, those are some BABES.

  • RJ

    “Do babes love being called chicks?”

    These are pretty much synonyms.

    I’m glad to be teaching you a little about women, BCB.

    Your interest has me curious: Are you considering converting? 🙂

  • boomcrashbaby

    Interesting calendar, EWG. So what I can conclude from this is that while the Right rants day and night about Hollywood actors speaking from the podium, and worries about the influence of the entertainment industry in politics,it’s now become a ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ philosophy? Start marketing the Republican ideal like a product, knowing that sex sells best?

    The whole concept almost looks like a ‘what an ideal Republican woman can be’ guideline for stepford wives everywhere to aspire to. What is Miss December’s view on global warming? Is Miss August comfortable with our current relations with China? Are her measurements included with her answer?

  • RJ

    “Now, those are some BABES.”

    True, my potentially bi-sexual friend.

    But they are far more than mere “babes.”

    These broads are so hot, I wouldn’t even bother to pull out.

    I would view child support as a blessing, with these vixens.

    “Uh, what’s that? You’re preggers? And you need to have me come over quite often for the nexxt 18 years? Uh, OKAY…”


  • It’s just a themed calendar. Don’t read so much into it. It’s just a way for some guy to make a few bucks.

  • Or woman, I don’t know who actually produced the calendar.

  • boomcrashbaby

    Your interest has me curious: Are you considering converting?

    No. Women are wonderful, I love them all, but I’m not looking for anybody right now.

    Just surprised to see the use of sexuality this way, to promote politics.

  • bhw

    I agree, Boom, it’s an odd campaign, particularly given the conservative rants about liberal agendas bringing the country down.

    From Babes for Bush:

    There he stood. Not quite as tall as I’d imagined, probably about six feet, still I was surprised by how handsome he was, much more so than in photos or on TV. As I glided toward him (I don’t remember walking), every thought I brought to share with him evaporated in his presence. I got about two feet from him, stopped, looked up at his gorgeous face, and said, “I love you.” He reached out his hands to this childlike creature, gently pulled me toward him, and gave me a hug. It was the kind of hug you get from a family member who really loves you and hasn’t seen you in a while. Oddly enough, it felt familiar, and I felt safe with my cheek resting against his chest.

    This has got to be the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time. This isn’t about politics, it’s about these ladies getting their panties damp over Dubya (is it okay to love God and lust after the President at the same time?). Do you think they write dirty Bush/Cheney fanfic, too?

  • I did find a guy named Studs Terkell who writes over at progressivetrail.org.

    Good grief – is he still alive? How old is he now?

  • Got it – Terkel is 92 and going strong.

  • HW Saxton Jr.

    Studs Terkels “Giants Of Jazz”(1956)is a
    great read for anyone interested in the
    evolution of Jazz from Swing to Be Bop.

  • I haven’t been following this discussion, but the original post is silly.

    Bush “trusts women”? How about trusting them with their bodies and procreative rights?

    Bush feels deeply for each man and woman in uniform? Tell that to the countless disgruntled troops who have lost morale and feel they’re fighting for nothing with no support or reward.

    We love focusing on silly stories like the Wendy’s encounter with Kerry, but the fact remains that soldiers on active duty are increasingly disappointed in their commander in chief.

    That is all.

  • Oh, and by the way:

    Just as there has been for roughly the last decade and a half, there’s a marked gender gap in voting. Kerry is overwhelmingly winning the women’s vote and he’s fairly close to Bush among men (where Bush won the election in 2000).

  • Way to go, Bob. Someone thought he could slip this pass without acknowledging the gender gap, which has favored the Democrats for as long as anyone has kept count. An apt title for this entry would be, “Right Wing Women Like Bush.” No surprise, there. They like anything Right Wing. Unfortunately for the GOP, it is moderates of both genders it needs to attract. I haven’t seen any evidence Shrub has made much progress in closing the gender gap. A Pew Foundation poll reported here puts the differential in potential female voters at 12 percent, definitely not favoring the Republicans. The article adds:

    “Women are sick of Bush and all the macho strutting; it’s gotten pretty old,” says a Republican strategist.”

    As for being “childlike,” as the Babe for Bush describes herself, I can see why that sort of person would be attracted to Shrub. But, I’m not looking for a Daddy. I’m looking for a president.

  • All women want a man to spank them and be their Daddy. All the ladies know what I’m talkin about.

    But calling Bush “gorgeous” is just creepy. I’m sure the “Babe” who wrote that is hideous and haggard or a man. What woman uses phrases like “childlike creature” in reference to themselves? That phrase stuck in my head too.

    Bush isn’t a bad-looking man and he’s apparently our fittest President at his age, but he’s not gorgeous. As we’re seeing with the digs against Edwards in the past year, the rule of politics is that you always want to be the 2nd or 3rd best-looking man in the room if you’re a candidate, not the best-looking. People take you more seriously and resent you less if you’re pleasant-looking but not overwhelmingly hot.

    Now you know why I opine on politics from the sidelines. Just kidding. Sorta.
    All the ladies know what I’m talkin about.

    I suggest Al Barger lose the Girl Scout beret. Too damn sexy for the electorate — bound to cause a scandal.

    That is all.

  • Re: “All women want a man to spank them and be their Daddy”

    I doubt Hillary “knows what you’re talking about” 🙂

  • Shark

    ALL of the testimony by the “Babes for Bush” reads like Nora Roberts on a really bad day.

    “He slipped his hot, throbbing hanging chad into my privatized, no longer locked box…”

    Wait! “Babes for Bush” — hmmm, wouldn’t that make ’em lesbians?

    Whoo-hooo! Cheney’s daughter is ‘gettin’ involved’ in the ‘campaign’!

  • shark:

    i have five girlfriends that are babes for bush and they are all democrats.

    maybe i should start a dudes for dick website….

    i know that dick army has always been one of my favorite names.

    jack e. jett

  • boomcrashbaby

    On Directv’s soundscapes channel there is a good composer named Richard Bone. (Dick Bone for short?)

    There’s somebody in NASCAR racing called Dick Trickle. Although no word if he married someone named Tess. (say it fast)

    I just think it shows that they grew up in a more naive, innocent time perhaps?

  • Joe

    Back in the day, Melrose Place had a character named Peter Burns. Dr. Peter Burns. I don’t recall any special guest appearances by his cousin Dick Hertz.

  • Jack,

    I have a couple of gay friends who just got married in Massachusetts but want to join Dudes for Dick. Perhaps you know them: Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick. They’re good Irish boys who’ve turned their back on Kerry and the Democrats.

    That is all.

  • Eric Olsen

    my ex-wife had friends named Harry and Iona Dickey – this is the gospel truth.

    The mythology around politicians is a fascinating subject that hasn’t been explored all that much other than for Kennedy, for whom it has been vastly overdone.

  • Now I’m confused, I always thought “Babes For Bush” meant he was a good ol’ pig-fucker.

  • Joe

    Well, if we can somehow get Mike Hunt in the picture, I think we’ll really have brought the conversation full circle.

  • Eric Olsen

    and don’t forget Helen Zass

  • boomcrashbaby

    Apparently there really is aHaywood Jablowme

  • bhw

    Don’t forget to bring Mike Litoris!

  • Joe

    There was that guy, Hugh something, worked in the bar that avertised “Liquor in the Front, Poker in the Rear”. What was his name? Jass? Dick? G. Rection?

  • I can’t believe nobody linked “Heywood Jablowme” to this week’s Six Feet Under.

    And I really have known a Mike Hunt (poor bastard).

    Does anybody know the number for Moe’s Tavern?

    We could call for Stan Dupt and Sid Down.

  • Joe

    Well, to give this conversation the semblance of relating to the post: Did you hear about the newest Bush family members to join the campaign? Nephew Eaton Bush and his wife, the lovely Ida Shaver-Bush.

    Latest Headline:

    “Magic Johnson Goes For Bush”

    I had a bumper sticker that said,


    –but everytime I left my car parked in public, I returned to find a new dent. I had to remove the sticker. It got to be dangerous.

    I live in Texas. What can I say…

  • It’s a little known fact that Mike Hunt has a distant cousin on his father’s side who lives in Scotland named Phillip McHunt, and the rumor is that he is very popular with the ladies.

  • boomcrashbaby

    Didn’t he eventually marry Phyllis Todahilt?

  • RJ

    In junior high, I knew a kid named Miles Head.

    Terrible. Simply terrible.

    (But better than Richard Head!)

  • I once saw a Larry King Live show in which Larry asked something like the following question of two interviewees: Representative Dicks, how do you respond to Representative Cox? I couldn’t find the transcript; I think it was around May 25, 1999.

    Dicks and Cox cross paths every now and then.

    From Rep. Cox Praised for China Spy Probe (May 25, 1999):

      “Most of all I want to say to Chairman Cox, you did a first-rate job,” said Rep. Norman Dicks of Washington state, the committee’s ranking Democrat. Dicks said Cox conducted the investigation while “the political environment … was as partisan and as mean-spirited as I’ve seen it in 30 years here.”

    Can you believe that I spent twenty minutes searching for this? Where the hell are my priorities?

  • RJ

    You have fine priorities, Dirt. I got a chuckle. And that means it was WORTH THE EFFORT. 🙂
