He informed me that he had a condo nearby, and he hoped to see me again. This was while he was the VP. He then went on his way. About 15 minutes later, a guy shows up, and hands me a bottle of water. he said Mr. Bush says you should have this. I found it refreshing as it seemed like every other person that I dealt with that day was a complete a$$hole.
Nice!

Overall I thought he was a good guy and a good leader for the USA during the GW1.

My favorite president was Richard Nixon though. The only thing he did wrong was resign. It was his patriotic duty to spy on the dimwitz.

Can Jim-mah take Billie and Hitlery with him so we can have a Trifecta foonrell?

I'd get drunk for a solid week if that happened.

I agree with a lot of what some of you have posted. I wished that that Saddam would have had his ass kicked all the way back to Baghdad during the Gulf War as well. I was very disappointed when we were promised no more taxes and then he signed the bill anyway. However as we all should know The President can have his plans go south when deals are made. I don't make excuses for his failures. I just liked him. George H.W. Bush is the the only President of the United States that I ever personally got to meet. He shock my hand and spoke to me like he was just a regular guy. My wife and I just loved Barbara Bush. Remember when she let it slip on TV and called Hillary a Bitch. That was priceless. We thought she was like the First Grandmother. She did a lot of things for kid causes. I watched Sesame Street with my girls when they were little one time and Barbara was on the show. She was great.

I believe you are confusing Barbara Bush's comments about Geraldine Ferraro with Connie Chung's 1995 interview with Newt Gingrich's mother, where Connie got Newt's mother to admit that Newt called Hillary a "bitch". Connie Chung lost her job with CBS shortly thereafter .

FWIW, I liked Barbara Bush, too. She was a bluehair that didn't pretend to be anything else, and seemed to speak her mind. I found her persona refreshing.

We;ve been fighting generational wars, one generation after another now since Korea, enough of this shit.

Anyone want to bet we won't be fighting and getting our people killed going up against Iran one day soon?

War/conflict has become a business model.

When the economy goes down, start a shooting war and keep it going until the economy goes back up.

All of our leaders involved in this shit can rot in hell.
