George W. Bush shows up for jury duty, is rejected
Former President of the United States George W. Bush showed up for jury duty in Dallas on August 5, but in a move that surprised no one, he wasn’t chosen (Vietnam, anyone?)
Could he have charmed his way out of it with his boyish grin and his special way with words?
While we may never know why he wasn’t chosen, we do know the hearts of the ladies in the George L. Allen Sr. Courts were all aflutter.
“He was very personable, very friendly, just ‘hey I’m here to serve,’ he asked questions and was very nice,” potential juror Sheri Coleman told the Dallas Morning News.
“I loved it.”
Pictures soon ensued.

Bush’s spokesman Freddy Ford confirmed the 43rd President was in the courthouse for jury duty for nearly four hours before being whisked away by Secret Service agents.
Bush had many special moments during his eight year run in the White House, but his favourite memory of his presidential career?
“I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a seven and-a-half pound largemouth bass in my lake,” he told German newspaper Bild am Sonntag on May 7, 2006.
The Dallas Morning News posted an interview on YouTube with someone who witnessed this historic event. Watch below:
