Bush Attends Carrier Christening Named For GHWB

Yahoo News:

President Bush recalled his father's heroics as a World War II Navy pilot, during a rare joint appearance on Saturday by the two men amid a report of strains in their relationship over Iraq.

A new book, "State of Denial," by journalist Bob Woodward, says former president George Bush was "anguished" over the Iraq war and its aftermath, although the elder Bush has dismissed that account.

On Saturday, the two Bushes took part in the christening of the Navy's newest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, named the USS George H.W. Bush after the 41st president.

[..]Bush's sister, Doro Bush Koch, christened it by cracking a bottle of champagne on its bow.

The president jokingly likened the new ship to his mother, who is known for her feistiness.

"She (the carrier) is unrelenting, she is unshakable, she is unyielding, she is unstoppable. As a matter of fact, (the ship) probably should have been named the Barbara Bush," he said.

I'm just not sure if that's more of an insult or a compliment to either parent.
