George W. Bush pretty much wins at being the coolest president of all time. The guy visits troops in hospitals, gives everyone nicknames whether they want them or not, paints nude selfies (TFTC), makes Jay Leno entertaining — he does it all. Apparently W. spent some time watching the Iron Bowl a few weeks back and he couldn’t help but feel for ‘Bama’s much maligned kicker, Cade Foster. In light of the loss, and the vicious backlash directed at Foster, old Dubya decided to send the poor guy a note, letting him know everything will be okay.
Foster Instagrammed the note, saying he was going to frame it, which he definitely should.
Dear Cade (#43), Life has its setbacks. I know! However you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best – Sincerely – another 43 George Bush.
Simply put, this is incredible. No idea why W. went out of his way to do this, maybe the kinship of 43? Don’t know, don’t care, doesn’t matter. All I know is that a spontaneous note from George W. Bush would pretty much make any embarrassing or awful moment I had worth it. Unfortunately I don’t think George W. Bush sends consolatory notes for when you get too shitfaced, get thrown out of a bar, pass out in a cab, and your friend spills his spitter on your favorite slacks. If only.
The only thing missing is W. assigning Foster some goofy nickname like “Loser Legs” or “Wide Right.” Then again, maybe that would’ve defeated the purpose.
