    88 years young today. A true American hero that served with valor during WWII. As President he showed astute statesmanship, was able to reverse much of the damage caused by what he coined "Voodoo economics" and used the military in a way that would become a template, I believe, for "Smart Power". He surrounded himself with brilliant men like Jim Baker and Robert Gates. And he gave the Central Intelligence Agency a new found respect and protection for it's agents..making it a crime to reveal their identities.

    Kudos Mr. President..enjoy your day.

    Fuck you, you worthless hypocrite.

    Bush broke his "no new taxes" pledged and lost to Bill Clinton. His mistake, like his son's, was thinking he could work with Democrats. They fucked him every time. He should have gone on the Baghdad and finished the job but the weenies in State objected.
    He was a great public servant, with a long resume of public service.
    Let's see you say the same thing when GW's birthday comes along.

    Remember the part where they say 'until death us do part'? Well, after a while you realize you were actually setting a goal.

    Yeah. I did the goal set. He moved to Ohio with another woman. We're still married at this point in time.

    You were saying.

    Well back than they actually meant that, nowadays most young people just want the overpriced wedding and honeymoon and than get bored quickly when the real married life starts.

    Meh, I have a sneaking suspicion that he has a good amount of blood on his hands...and oil.
