The fact that he was a Governor means he is more qualified than who is in there now and he didn't run his state into the ground.

I never thought I'd miss a president like Bush, but Obowelmovement did the job of forcing me to yearn for the good old days of George Bush. Whoddathunkit?
There isn't going to be a good president until the financial house of the US gov is in order. When diplomacy doesn't mean guns anymore, but investment in foreign nations political and financial well-being is emphasized the goal and armed conflict is avoided.
China doesn't send in armaments when the have foreign policy issues, they bring money, something they've got, and, unfortunately, the US doesn't have any.
Once the US gov has trillions in the bank to invest in good will towards others and not trillions in debt, there will be a good president and not until then.

EarlyBird that is trillions not quadrillions.
The first group of numbers is hundreds, not thousands.
Zrider.. Thanks, I stand corrected. I forgot how exponents work in scientific notation. Wow and to think I was a Math Tutor in college and my students all passed with flying colors. Thanks again for the refresher. 100 is 10exp2 1000 is 10exp3.
Could you imagine the over taxation uproar if the US had a 2 trillion dollar reserve? So, it will never happen.
Actually, there is no reason for the Fed. government to have said reserves.
Our State has huge reserves and no one is complaining loud enough to suit me. I wonder what happened to property tax relief?

I can understand the state having some reserves.
The legislature is almost done and I have no idea what they've passed, other than anti-abortion bills. Where is the reporting?
I have a feeling the taxpayers are going to get shafted.
Tax relief??? I just got my notice of my land value increases and their assessed values. Apparently they don't have enough reserves yet.

His daughter Noelle has been arrested for forging a doctor's name on a prescription to obtain Xanax.
She has had problems with prescription medicines and abuse of them.
Too many problems associated with the Bush's at this point in time and another Bush in the White House will be more like Ground Hog Day than Ground Hog Day.

Addiction is a medical issue not a criminal issue. Mild drugs like aspirin and pot are somewhat addictive if they help the person using them, I don't think they get addicted to the drug but instead get addicted to feeling better. Personally I have tried both and both do reduce the medical issues I have suffered in the past. The trade off for aspirin was it made my stomach sore and added another medical issue where the trade off for pot was it reduced my pains but made my brain seem a little slower. I choose to live with a clear head and more pain so far, although pain will cloud my thinking way more than any pot I tried back then. Medicine should be left up to the Dr's to decide what is best or works best for us is what I have learned about it.
They bailed out their own retirement funds is all, and the Social Security retirement funds too I imagine. It was comical to me to hear people say they lost money, they did not they lost hope to make money for awhile. I don't think it's money until it's in the bank and you paid taxes on it.
