    George W. Bush, Chris Christie Talk Taxes in NYC

    “I have decided to stay out of the limelight,” Bush said. “It’s not good to undermine our president. I’ve been asked if I miss the presidency. I really don’t, but I really do miss being commander in chief. We have a calling to save lives in the developing world. We can’t be isolationists and hope for a peaceful tomorrow.”

    With his characteristic sense of humor, Bush also spoke of his mountain bike rides with wounded war veterans, saying, “I don’t like being beaten by a one-legged veteran on a mountain bike.”

    No wonder he missed being the commander in chief.

    Context can be your friend. You don't always need to be a bottom feeder.

    The context is the guy lost his leg because Bush sent him to Iraq for reasons still unclear. Terrible. Terrible and awful.

    Scraping the bottom of the cesspool, as usual; how utterly typical of you.

    what is the problem here? You don't think a one legged man can ride a bike? They run triathlons now, get your head out of your ass.

    President Bush was paying the veteran a compliment. Instead of complaining and whining and crying about their plight, wounded warriors are taking their new limbs and continuing on with life.

    A visit to Walter Reed once in awhile does wonders for my occasional crybaby attitude about a little pain, a limp, and a few scars. I write this from the experience of seeing one and no-legged people moving on and making the best of their situation. We all did as ordered and some came back a little less whole than others. I saw the TV piece about Bush and veterans riding bikes in the desert. They all considered the ride to be an honor and rode their asses off, regardless of number of fake limbs.

    You'd think he'd be grateful.
