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.

I never said that I was a conservative, but no one should ever wish harm to anyone especially the President. Only worthless pigs who don't have a thought for anyone have those types of things to say.

I think its a terrible loss(no joke), and the silver lining is all the artwork and furnishings had been moved out. But its apparent that god is mad. Its looks like perry is to blame for god's wrath. I guess god disagrees with the voters of texas and doesn't want perry living there anymore. Perhaps the texas voters should wake up and listen to god's warning before even worse things happen.

The Democrats are all commie socialists. When Obama takes over, it will become the Socialist States of America. Commie heaven.

28 percent people - that's the Drunken Monkey's approval rating. From the looks of things, about half of his supporters visit TMZ regularly. But fear not, Dubya and his wasteful cronyism (soldiers dying and our taxes being raised so that his oil buddies could make a couple billion more before they croak) have made unlikeable ol Al Gore into the closest thing we're going to see to a philosopher/king. Admit it you Goopers - if Katherine Harris had let the people of Florida elect Al Gore, we wouldn't be in this mess right now.

Rob, get a clue! You've been BRAINWASHED by a liberal media. Allow me to educate you:

In 1993, under the Bubba Clinton administration, Islamic terrorists bombed the World Trade Center....REMEMBER THAT!
In 1996, terrorists bombed the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, killing 20 American military personnel and injuring 250
In 1998, terrorists destroyed the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and in Tanzania.
In 2000, terrorists bombed an American destroyer, the U.S.S. Cole
And I left out the domestic terrorism of Oklahoma City and the Olympics
And terrorists planned the 2001 9/11 attack under CLINTON'S administration
Do you read much?

Clinton dismantled the CIA and weakened the military, making us susceptible to attacks. AND his administration ended with a RECESSION! We, on the other hand, are NOT currently in a recession. Get a clue. And Clinton's surplus was a direct result of Gingrich and the Republicans curbing spending. You must be a product of public education. As a tax-payer, I want my money back!

You people who support Obama might as well back your bags and move to Russia. Or maybe we will be just like them in a few years or so. You may not have to pack after all.

I have read your site for several years but will not delete it from my viewing. How can you attribute this to President Bush.? As you sleep safe at night thinking up more vile things to say whether you like it or not, Bush has been keeping watch for you , whether you like it or not.

We are going to become the North American Union anyway, We will have zero borders. Anyone can come in whenever they feel like it too. Our system won't be able to sustain all the illegals coming into our country. We will have to fight with them for the jobs.

"Indeed, Obama makes no bones about his plans to go on a tax rampage. Not only would he increase the capital-gains tax rate from 15 percent to as much as 28 percent, he wants to allow the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts to expire in 2010, which effectively raises taxes on Americans by tens of billions of dollars.

He also wants to do away with the $102,000 FICA payroll tax cap, which means anyone making over $102,000 would pay an additional 7 percent in taxes on earned income.

And the loan dividend tax rate George Bush implemented? Under President Obama it will be DOA! "

People will be dumping their stocks on Wall Street when Obama becomes elected which will have an even more negative effect on the economy.

Hey geniuses - DUBYA BANKRUPTED THE USA. That is not and will never be President Obama's fault. Hillary's support of Bush's Folly is why she didn't get the nomination. Your days of tax cuts and giant SUVs are in the past. Get over it and get busy recycling your household trash - you've been recycling Pat Buchanan's Nixon-era talking points for 35 years and they're really tiresome, not to mention burdening the nation with trillions in debt.
