    No. No left handed slam. I hoped you knew me better than that. I meant exactly what I said. The topic is Bush Sr., not Bush Jr. If you want to start a topic about Bush Jr., I'll be happy to participate. I think I clearly stated that.

    Bush senior is an honorable man and a class act.

    That story is just too awesome. That the secret service detail did it too really is great.

    I read some of the comments at the bottom of the MSN story...There are some real hateful people out there.

    As bad as this place can get sometimes, those comments sections in those places are nasty beyond belief.

    I've always wondered if Bush Sr. was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when it came to his re-election. I just can't recall him being embroiled in scandal (real or manufactured) during his presidency.

    It's cool Bush Sr did this. Think I read in another article he also gave money to the kid's family. That's even cooler.

    I find it a great gesture and neat that he did that. Is anyone else shocked by how many personal secret service detail there is for an ex-prez who hasn't been in office for 20 years?

    Bear in mind that GHWB was punished for raising taxes.

    He was punished for raising taxes after he said he wouldnt.

    I suppose that somewhat justifies his defeat given how promises are highly valued in American political culture.

    ... no matter how impractical that is. You can vote for a man due to his character and vision, but extracting promises from your nation's leader is like a wife begging a husband going to the front line to come back alive. The nature of his work does not leave much room for pledges.
