Where to find enthusiasts of u.s. presidents, specifically G.W. Bush?

Asked by Ria777 (2677points) December 14th, 2009

simply put, I want to find out as much trivia about George W. Bush. dogs, favorite foods, etc. the personal rather than the political. I want to write some fiction about him and want to get the details correct. I think I probably need to know about a place where people interested in that kind of thing will gather so I can ask them. only thing, I don’t know where to do it.

please don’t answer with general information about general sources of information. I can look up those myself. I can easily search for biographies on him, too, so I don’t need those, either.

and please please don’t answer with smartass answers. you’d just waste my time and yours and I don’t want to deal with that shit.

thank you much.

bottom line: I posted to get some information and I specifically said I wanted strictly informative responses. now under those circumstances, I think that any other sort of response counts as downright rude. then I check the button that says “reply was totally unhelpful”.

the political opinions of Fluther or, for that matter of me, does not really factor into it.

How do the political opinions of Fluther not factor into it? Asking for unbiased personal information about Bush around here is sort of like going to an anti-abortion rally and saying “Hey, does anybody know which abortion clinic in the area has the cleanest facilities?” Why would you even ask there? Honestly, forget “Reply was totally unhelpful.” Try “Question was completely out of place.”

Damn, my edit time ran out.

And, by the way, I think “I think asking for no smartass answers to a question about Bush enthusiasts has pretty much guaranteed you won’t really get any answers at all” was a very helpful answer to this question. It’s a fair warning not to get your hopes up, since you’ve asked a(n admittedly really good) question in an inappropriate place to get good answers.

I would try getting touch with The Texas Rangers Ball Culb, There may be somebody that may give you more information. (since he was their former owner ). Also you may want to check out the city of Crawford, TX homepage . as well. http://www.crawford-texas.org/

Also there was na espodie of King of Hill that had a freature on Mr Bush. inovleing Bobby and Hank meeting him.

Golly, I have never heard any enthusiasts of G.W. Bush, so I am probably of no help either. Wait, that’s not true . . . if you send a letter to Mrs. Barbara Bush, c/o General Delivery, Kennebunkport, ME (you have to look up the zip), I bet she would be one of his biggest fans and could share a lot of information about the personal side of her son. But you run the risk that she doesn’t like him much either . . . wasn’t Jeb her favorite?

@Ria777: Have you seen W.? I found it to be a surprisingly fair and sympathetic portrayal of Dubya.

@MacBean: I didn’t have stratospherically high hopes of getting a decent reply. still, you can’t succeed if you don’t try.

as for W., yes, of course I know of it, and like I said, not interested in general sources, as I said. apart from that, while, obviously, all biographies involve certain amount of fiction, I wanted to steer clear of dodudramas and the like. (for one thing, I wouldn’t want the lead actor’s performance to bleed into the way that I wrote about the actual GWB.)

@MacBean: as for your first answer…

How do the political opinions of Fluther not factor into it?

because I didn’t ask for it. my question had nothing to do with my political opinions, nor did I ask for others’. (if any of you have followed me on Fluther, you’d have guessed that, to make a massive understatement, I don’t deify the man.)

Asking for unbiased personal information about Bush around here is sort of like going to an anti-abortion rally and saying “Hey, does anybody know which abortion clinic in the area has the cleanest facilities?”

wrong analogy. I wanted to do more like find out, where can I find a yellow pages so I could look up the information myself. and BTW, quite a few conservatives hang out on Fluther. (or should I say, born again types who I tend to ID as politically conservative.)

Well, in that case, @toomuchcoffee911 gave the only necessary answer.
