Bush: Jenna's wedding was 'spectacular'


President George Bush and first lady Laura Bush pose with daughters Jenna and Barbara. (White House Photo)

- Against the backdrop of a stunning Texas sunset, near a lake on the Bush family's 1,600-acre ranch, President Bush walked his daughter, Jenna, down the aisle to her groom, the White House said.

Jenna, 26, married Henry Hager, the son of a well-connected Virginia Republican.

"The wedding was spectacular. It was all we could have hoped for," the president said Sunday before boarding Air Force One.

"We're mighty blessed."

Wearing a white silk organza Oscar de la Renta gown, the bride stood with the groom before a beige-colored cross and altar made of Texas limestone.

    I feel sorry for those soldiers this Bush man sent to die fo oil sake; so him and his oil budies can make money for themselves.

    Here we have him laughing and telling the world how his daugther wedding was made in heaven; while parents of those young men and women that have died will mourn their children till they depart this world.

    I thought the devil was even better than that.

    I am wondering why anyone cares?

    Bush isn't royalty. What his family does means nothing to the general public.

    We might see 1 million people die in Burma and THIS is the crap CNN has on the ticker.

    I can't remember which drunken daughter Jenna is: the one who forged fake ID? Which shows she has the brains of Dad as well.

    The First Daughter. Forged ID.

    The Bush girl's wedding is so irrelevant during the term of the worst president in history that it's almost funny. I hope they have plenty of money to count from kickbacks from oil corporations because that's about the only "well wishing" there will be from this country.

    No one gives a crap about her wedding.

    If it's one thing, President Bush has some pretty daughters. He got good choice in women too. I wonder if his other daughter is available? I hope or Dr. Phil can hook us up.

    What a pretty family. One of the girls look like the Bushes, however the other looks a bit like Chelsea. I wonder what Bill was up to?

    President and Mrs. Bush look so proud, and Jenna is beautiful :). But back to business, Democrats '08!!

    Hey CNN, the "Political Ticker" heading link is missing at the top. It's been so for a couple of days. It took some work to find out where you guys were on your website. Just a heads up...

    Bush is a war criminal. Impeach & convict the Bush administration.
