Laura Bush Says The Tea Party Looks Like "Next Door Neighbors" (VIDEO)

Getting Laura Bush to comment on anything remotely controversial is like trying to extract water from a rock. This trait makes her a fine former First Lady, but a fairly bland talk-show guest.

So Kudus to Greta Van Susteren, who was able to get Bush to talk about the Tea Party during an interview she conducted with Mrs. Bush on 'On the Record With Greta Van Susteren' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on Fox News.)

"I think people are worried about spending, I think that's really the whole thing behind it," was how Bush explained the Tea Party movement.

Then Van Susteren started to present a point about how Tea Partiers are different from how Baby Boomers envision anti-government protesters:

"I sort of have my concept of what a typical protester is, having grown up in the sixties and early seventies," Greta explained. "And (the Tea Party) don't look like ... they sort of look like ..."

"Next door neighbors," Bush interjected, completing Van Susteren's thought. Though she neglected to mention if they look like the kind of next door neighbors you'd want to borrow a cup of sugar from, or the kind of next door neighbors who might motivate you to build a fence in your backyard.
