Jenna Bush: (On her mother Laura's impact on her father George's success) I think that if he had never met my mom, there is no way that he could have been as successful as he is. Just because she is so stable and so supportive, and so giving; she travels and works for him. But she would never think not to. They have a pretty unconditional love. But she's really great. She's really supportive.
Jenna Bush: (On her parents demanding her and her sister Barbara to be anything other than normal kids) I'm sure there were times when I wish I had thought, 'Gosh, that might really embarrass mom and dad,' but our parents didn't raise us to think about them. They're very selfless and they wanted us to have as normal of a college life as possible. So really, we didn't think of any repercussions. We were working really hard to make sure we accomplish everything we want in life, but we don't think about being the president's daughter; we don't think about that, really.
Jenna Bush: (talking about her mother Laura Bush in an A&E network interview) Sometimes she will say something and Barbara and I will be like 'Mom!' (laugh) I mean every once and a while she will say a cuss word and Barbara and I will be totally shocked, and she does it only for shock value because she's so calm. My dad thinks she's hilarious. They laugh at each other all the time. She has a dry sense of humor. She has so many quirks in her personality and she's really cute acting; she has a really cute personality, we think.
Jenna Bush: (talking about her parents in an A&E network interview) I'm more like my father, personality-wise. But my mom and I get alone really well - obviously, because my mom and my dad get along so well. We never really had a disciplinarian. We never really needed someone to. Well, we did obviously. They both played different roles, Dad was the funnier one that would get angrier, and my mom would be calmly disappointed, which is painful.
Jenna Bush: (about her father as President) I think he has done a really great job. He's obviously under a lot of stress. It's hard hearing the criticism; we're very protective. I see him as a completely different person than the rest of the world. He's my father, and that's a different role. He's so goofy and funny; he always keeps me laughing.
Laura Bush: Our girls are not public figures. They're the children of a president.
