President Bush at Harding University

As many of you know, former President George W. Bush spoke at Harding University last night.  From what I have heard, the former President was great — interesting, engaging and very funny.  I had family members who attended the speech and the reception and got to meet Mr. Bush.

What I found sad was Harding professor Mark Elrod’s comments on Twitter during the event.  He criticized, disrespected and made fun of President Bush throughout his speech — questioning his intelligence, second-guessing statements (and having his disciples fact-check those statements).  But even worse, he made fun of the audience (which contained fellow professors, students and administrators from Harding).
