    Yup, nothing iffy about this story at all.
    Nothing more concrete than anonymous comments from people who got it secondhand, no doubt from someone else who was told secondhand information from another anonymous source.

    Good grief. Sounds like a bad game of telephone.

    Oh I know it wasn't the takeaway Monte. I saw note's post about the ranch. I was just surprised that's all he spent on the Dallas digs.

    Preston Hollow?

    No he couldn't, but then negative rumours get started this way.

    Me too. I have friends in PH and I've been there. Nice houses, don't get me wrong, but not ex-POTUS Bush nice... you know?

    If you live there, I don't mean to disparage your neighborhood in any way.

    Haha, I can't quite live there. I did live 12 years in Dallas. The houses are typically older nice, real nice, but agreed, not typical ex-POTUS nice.

    Is it possible that these "speaking engagements," ex-presidents make a killing on, are merely deferred bribes?
