    I'll grant you GWB was never a drama teacher, so he could never have led a liberal party, but not everyone looks for the best actor when choosing a leader.
    Dubya got to where he was because of his father. Everyone knows that.

    Pierre had no hesitation in responding to Québécois terrorism.

    You mean Pierre didn't try to understand why Les Québécois were terrorists?

    Seems like Justin Trudeau is a better evolved socialist than his Commi-sympathizing father. (vomit icon)

    He got to be a successful businessman and successful governor of Texas because of his father? He was elected twice to the Presidency because of his father?

    He may owe more of his success to higher education, such as at Harvard and Yale.

    Yeah, Pierre didn't spend a great deal of time looking for 'root causes'. He would have been laughed off the national stage had he did.

    Now the phrase is intended to sent a message of deep empathy, a Clinton "I feel your pain" moment that has never received the ridicule it deserves.

    If your idea of running a successful business is running it into the ground, then yeah, okay. For others, who have a sense of reality, the answer is no.

    And, like I said, he got to be governor because of daddy.

    He made millions in business and he got to be Governor of Texas and President of the US because of the electorate.

    It's laughable how short the Libs memories are. What was Obama's answer to have executive experience? He was running his campaign. ROTFLOL... Trudeau Junior... not even that.

    Oh yeah... he certainly had the midas touch. Ans still, he managed to **** things up pretty good, even despite having help from his pappy.

    It was later revealed that Bath made an investment of $50,000 while representing Salem bin Laden of the Saudi Binladin Group. This fact became controversial after the September 11, 2001 attacks due to Salem bin Laden being an older, half-brother of Osama bin Laden, who is alleged to have planned and financed the attacks. Upon Salem bin Laden's death in a 1988 airplane crash, in Texas, his interest in Arbusto (along with other Binladin Group assets), passed to Khalid bin Mahfouz.

    In 1982, Arbusto became known as Bush Exploration, a year after George H. W. Bush became Vice President. A friend of the Bush family, Philip Uzielli, invested $1 million in 1982 in exchange for a 10% stake in the company, at a time when the whole company was valued at less than $400,000. As it neared financial collapse again in September 1984, Bush Exploration merged with Spectrum 7 Energy Corp., a company owned by William DeWitt and Mercer Reynolds. G. W. Bush became Chairman and CEO of Spectrum 7.

    In 1985 Spectrum 7 reported a net loss of $1.5 million and was bought in 1986 for $2.2 million by Harken Energy, with Bush joining the Harken board of directors and finance audit committee.

    In 1987 the Saudi investor Abdullah Taha Bakhsh bought most of Union Bank of Switzerland's shares in Harken becoming its third largest investor owning 17% of the company. He was represented on the board by Talat M. Othman. Another investor was Ghaith R. Pharaon, a partner of Bakhsh's, who would later be involved in the Bank of Credit and Commerce International scandal, and is currently the target of an international dragnet.

    In January 1990 with the company in the same state as its previous incarnations, it was awarded a contract to drill for crude oil off the coast of Bahrain, a move that shocked industry insiders as Harken had no previous experience outside of the US or of drilling offshore.

    In June 1990 Bush sold more than half of his shares in Harken to a Los Angeles broker named Ralph D. Smith. One week after the sale Harken announced an overall loss of $23.2 million triggering an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission into the sale.
    Again, if you think he was successful, then your idea of success is different from people who have successful judgement. Seriously. It's like really believing the sky is **** brown because it's Conservative.
