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.

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.

Ovomit looked like a lil boy up there with Bush today.. What a sad sack..

How many visitors will Obama get to his library in Chicago? It will have to have 7 layers of armed guards just to keep the Chicago brothers he hangs out with out from emptying it out on day one.. ..

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.
