George W. Bush Joins Facebook

There a lot of politicians with Facebook pages. However, ask anyone and they'll tell you they didn't expect George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, to be one of them. Back in 2006, Bush famously said he's 'used the Google' on occasion. After that, there can't have been many people who thought the then President would ever have an online presence.

However, Bush has proved everyone wrong and joined Facebook. It's not a personal profile, but the fan page lists his birthday as July 6, 1946 and his location as Dallas TX. So far, he has a little over 114,000 fans.

Unfortunately, though the profile picture is of George, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any updates from the man himself. There are only a couple of updates so far and as far as we can tell, they didn't come from him.

If you click 'like' you can even post on his wall.

    So this is news telling us that someone made a fan page for him? Basically, this entire article has ZERO relevance to George Bush at all, gratz on making a completely irrelevant title.

    Can i be on the front page tomorrow if i make a fan page for Obama?

    I wonder how many liberals are going to go on there just to bash him.

    Of course. He approves of their (lack of) privacy policy.

    Idiot, Bush was and will go down as a much better president than the Marxist hack we have in there now. This was on the news and was said not to be from him. Bush would be the only reason I would want to join Facebook, NOT.
