It has been somewhat of a rarity in American history that a sitting president has had the wise council of his predecessors. Luckily for Barrack Obama, boy president, the elder Mr. Bush is still around to guide him through this troubling period of adolescence.
Presidential aides describe how Mr. Bush put a firm hand on young Barrack's shoulder and guided him into the oval office."When I saw what a mess he was making of things I knew it was time to take things in hand." Said the elder Mr. Bush. It was a full two hours before they emerged, Mr. Bush looking as proud as any father and the reticent President Obama looking bashful and contrite.
"I think he'll be alright now.", said Mr. Bush responding to a reporters question afterwards,his hand still resting on the boy president's shoulder. Obama nodded in agreement, his head bowed and his feet scuffing the ground in embarrassed silence."My own son was just the same at his age, just spit and fury.And look how he turned out.Sometimes all it takes is a father's touch. A firm hand and some well-chosen words of wisdom. That's all. A firm hand and words of wisdom."
