    I've watched a few interviews with George W. Bush the last few days.

    I can't believe how refreshing it is. Seriously, if a presidential election were held today, with Bush vs Obama, Bush wins by a landslide.

    I can't believe the contrast in honest patriotism, HUMILITY, class, and just overall presidential persona Bush has when compared to our current president.

    The overwhelming contrast I feel from watching the two is the humility factor. Bush comes across as so humble when contrasted with the arrogant demeanor of the constantly whining Obama. Anyone else get that sense?

    No. Bush was an illiterate douche...although he has recently admitted he fucked up over a few things, so kudos to him... Mind you, it took him over two years to do so...

    Let's ask Bush's speechwriter:

    "I always believed as a speechwriter that if you could persuade the president to commit himself to certain words, he would feel himself committed to the ideas that underlay those words. And the big shock to me has been that although the president said the words, he just did not absorb the ideas. And that is the root of, maybe, everything."
    David Frum - Speechwriter for George W. Bush

    Some of us have more to be humble about than others.

    America has a serious case of buyers remorse. What makes it worse is Obama doesn't care. He's not a politician, he's a community organizer.

    It easier to talk once your out of office. You can look back and reflect on the woulda, shoulda, couldas and get a little more perspective.

    But lets be blunt; Who would you rather share a beer with? A man that knows what it is like to do a days labor? Or some asshole that wants you to pay? :lol:

    You're right. Obama made his guests pay for those beers, and Bush was not a Connecticut transplant rich boy to Texas, and totally knows about a day's labor.:lol:
