However, I was disgusted that the article featured a cheap shot at President Bush. That kind of ruined the story for me, as it caused me to look at the couple in a different manner.
I wouldn't 'credit' that to the couple, but the writer. I thought it was pretty tacky myself. To include politics into a story about marital bliss and longevity.
I suppose that you could scorn the writer for including the couple's political views in the story. You could also blame him for bringing up the subject in the first place. Regardless, one thing is apparent, he let his political bias get into the story. When he quoted the old woman's opinion of President Bush, he followed it by saying something to the extent of, "she said with a twinkle in her eye."
However, though the writer may partially be at fault for this inappropriate addition to the article, the woman can be abhorred for stating her opinion in such a crude and disrespectful manner.
