The Good President

AP reports:
FORT HOOD, Texas — Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, have visited wounded soldiers and their families after the mass shooting at Fort Hood.

The Bushes made their private visit to Fort Hood's Darnall Army Medical Center on Friday night. Bush spokesman David Sherzer said in an e-mail that the couple thanked Fort Hood's military leaders and hospital staff for the "amazing care they are providing."

And what about the current occupant of the White House? He took Michelle and the kids to Camp David to get away from it all. He might be able to schedule a visit to Fort Hood next Tuesday.

Oh -- the Bushes kept everything low key. No reporters or news photos. They have class -- something Obama has only heard of.
