Former First Lady Laura Bush has faced some very unfair criticism coming from left-wing “feminists” recently. Governor Palin defended the former first lady via a statement published over on Gretawire:
“It’s such a shame that some can’t put partisanship aside to recognize the good work done by one woman who used the platform she was given to help women around the world. Laura Bush continues to work tirelessly to help women in the Middle East get access to breast cancer treatment and preventative care. She has helped shine a light on the plight of women in Afghanistan and has encouraged women small business owners. These are things all women should applaud and encourage, not criticize or dismiss. And all of this was accomplished by a woman who did not seek or aspire to the position of First Lady. In fact, I’m told that she always preferred to be referred to simply as Laura Bush and not First Lady. When she found herself in a position to serve, she stepped up to the plate and hit a home run for women, and she still does to this day as she continues her work helping women at home and around the world.
