Washington (CNN) – He was succeeded in the White House by the most web savvy administration in U.S. history, but that has not stopped former President George W. Bush from joining Facebook.
The office of the 43rd President recently established an official presence on the popular social networking site, CNN has confirmed.
"Our office hears from citizens all the time: 'How's President Bush? What's he up to? Please tell him thank you for his service,'" Bush spokesman David Sherzer told CNN in an email. "President Bush is grateful for all of these kind messages. A Facebook fan page is the ideal forum on which to keep people up to date on what the former president is doing."
The former president has nearly 30,000 Facebook fans connected to his Facebook page which is located at www.facebook.com/georgewbush.
The George W. Presidential Center also recently joined microblogging site Twitter (@GWBPresCenter) where Bush's office currently has just 50 followers.
When did Bush learn how to turn on a computer?
he is the definition of failure
Oh great. who is going to type his responses into FB. An AI program could most likely do a better job.
Thanks a lot Mr. Bush for running my country into a ditch.
Forget Bush become a Ron Paul fan on facebook! Paul actually obeys the law and can think for himself! Ron's ideas are great and they spread like wildfire, check him out!
It's official Facebook is dead.....look at what happened to Myspace after news-corpse took over......
if he writes like he speaks how are we ever going to know what he
is saying or is he going to get his wife to proof read just to make
sure he is not being himself, stupid
miss you GW
OMG!! First that imbecile from AK and now this man.
ISO really good hackers to take down, now two, facebook accounts before the world ends! Add twitter to the mix.
Just when you thought these two "social" networks couldn't get any worse. Ask the woman who's facebook friend stole electronics while she was out because she told all her "friends" she was going out.
That's facebook for you.
i love ya, george!
No, no, please! Hahahahahahahahaaaaa! Now the Republicans are trying to be hip while they mess up the country. Lovin' it!
too bad he won't be writing his own comments (a handler will) that would be great comic relief!! I miss Bush's goofiness :(
What a bitter, rotten, slimy bunch of haters the supposedly enlightened libertards are. Their own hero, Hussein Obozo is up to his neck in ethics violations, corruptness, incompetence and just plain slime and they find time to knock the ex president for joining Facebook? The Mexican drug cartels must be slipping something extra in the dope they are selling them
If you cant beat the Interwebs, join them...
one thing is certain ... he is no friend of mine.
History books will record Pres. Bush stood up to Liberals and the terrorist, and did all he could to keep America safe from another 9/11 attack. Thank you, Mr. President.
There goes the neighborhood! Please go away.....I stopped listening to the radio for 8 years while this idiot ran this country into the ground.
He finally made it on to the internets.
