    I like him. He just wants to paint and play cowboy at his ranch. A dignified retirement for an ex-President if there ever was one.

    I didn't think there could ever be a worse President in my lifetime....now regardless of who wins there's a good chance of that happening.

    Yeah, say what you will about his presidency, he's been the model ex-president. He's taken the high road and refused to talk shit about Obama (even when the current administration blames him for things). Didn't always agree with him, but I always thought he was probably a good dude.

    I think he is a good man with good intentions, but he was a bad president. The war in Iraq was a blunder that cost an acute loss of American lives, money, and made a volatile Mideast situation worse. Not to mention the wounded servicemen and women and their families who will suffer forever.

    I'm not a bush fan, but I don't get why he gets so much blame on Iraq. Congress declared war on Iraq, not bush. Bush requested a declaration and Congress gave it to him.

    He wasn't the only one who thought that. Besides, he's not the one who declared war, Congress did. Congress looked at the same information he did.

    I supported the Iraq war--someone had to get bombed to fuck
    then I thought his administration were the ultimate fuck ups for it

    now I've come to feel that there was no correct response
    no action that could have done any good
    Bush,Obama--the next guy/gal
    fucked if they do/fucked if they don't

    until the followers of islam decide it's time to join the modern world
    the modern world will have to hold on tight-it will a bumpy ride



    and again
    I feel people goofing on his paintings were just doing it to be mean
    he's pretty good

    He was the Commander in Chief. To Quote Harry Truman "The Buck Stops Here".
    Ultimately History will be the judge of George W. Bush.
