It was just a matter of time.

The 152-year-old Texas Governor's mansion, where Bush once rested his head, sustained serious damage as a four-alarm fire set the mansion ablaze at 2 AM CST this morning.

100 firefighters fought the blaze -- no one was home at the time of the fire.

UPDATE: Fire investigators say the blaze was intentionally set, but there's no indication it was intended as a direct threat to Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

The President of the United States, no matter who he or she is at the moment, DESERVES the respect of every American. S/He is the Commander in Chief of our military forces and the Leader of the Free World. Whether I agree with the President's agenda is not the issue. When we Americans show such utter disrespect for our own President, how can we possibly expect others to respect America?

Grow up, TMZ. Along with freedom comes responsibility. How about trying to exercise your responsibility and not just your freedom to print what you please?

god works in mysterious ways to let us know exactly who he is mad at. It truly is a shame the entire state of texas had to suffer the loss of such an historic mansion, but the fact is texas voters voted bush and perry into office and god is obviously very pissed off at one of them, otherswise why would god have let it burn down.

There was at least one good thing to come from the Hillary candidacy, and that is that moderate Democrats FINALLY witnessed first hand the power and destructive nature of the blood-thirsty liberal media. For about 6 months they experienced the wrath of a left-wing extremist media who collaborated to take her down at all costs. Even as Hillary was DESTROYING Hussein by 30 and 40 points! Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a media creation. He has NO qualifications. He has NO experience. He has NO ethics. He financially funds the biggest RACISTS and ANTI-AMERICANS this nation has seen in many years. He has been propelled to the highest seat of power by the most dangerous radicals in the nation. But...but...he's black and he can read from a teleprompter. He doesn't even write the speeches that his ignorant sycophants swoon over (David Axelrod, a white man, writes his speeches). There is no entity in America more FASCIST than the mainstream media. And it, single-handedly, will elect a Manchurian Candidate.
