Laura Bush Blunders
On a recent trip to Saudi Arabia, Laura Bush chose to submit to the enemies of western civilization by wearing an abaya. An “abaya” is a loose black robe worn from head to toe by Muslim women. It’s commonly seen as a symbol of Islam’s oppression toward women.
Mrs. Bush’s horrific display of this garment can only be met with shame and disappointment. Any positive results she sought to achieve going in quickly evaporated as her poor judgment turned into yet another treasure trove for Muslim propaganda.
In a single act, Mrs. Bush’s blunder reached the level of Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Syria. Admittedly, I now find myself questioning the sanity of sending women to the middle east for any reason. Their pattern of appeasement is troubling not to mention the loss of fashion sense. If you wouldn’t wear drapes at home, why do it there?
