    Third rate? You might need to go to Mississippi or Detroit and convince some folks there that they can afford the Bush's.
    Just curious- which countries would you call first rate?
    that's just plain stupid.

    how did he get an "unearned" seat at Harvard

    You obviously know little of the history of Yale as well

    Bush's acceptance into HBS is far less bogus than say obama's acceptance into the law school

    Really? How do you know his seat at Yale was unearned? (His GPA was better than Al Gore's, after all.) How do you know his seat at Harvard was undeserved? He did not dodge his military obligation. Did he not win the 2000 election under the terms of the Constitution?

    They are Goldilocks, always unhappy at every thing.

    If Harry had gotten into a drunken stupor and tried to defecate in the middle of Times Square then I think a little criticism may be warranted.

    But just going to give honor to the fallen at Arlington does not deserve this kind of pathetic trash talk.

    He wasn't just doing it for the PR like our politicians who cry crocodile tears. Harry doesn't need the PR he isn't running for any BS election. He did it because he felt the need to.

    Hats off to him.

    It's odd how some want to believe the worst about Bush, even when the misconceptions have been proven false, over and over again.

    It's also odd, on the other hand, that we are expected to just accept the media's word on BHO's schooling, and his GPA, since he has yet to release those records.

    Just common sense.

    It only counts as wisdom to the brain-starved masses who think that running around in a helicopter in Third World desert at the behest of cosksucking pols has anything at all to do w/serving one's country.

    If the spoiled brat wants to serve his country, he needs to pay back all the taxpayer $$ used to subsidize him.

    Making one's own way in the world is the first step toward becoming responsible. Once harry reaches that level, he can consider doing something noteworthy.

    There won't be much bitterness if the taliban manage to capture the wimp one of these days.

    Although the Afghan extremist groups aren't the nicest people on Earth, a Royal hostage is a good way to ensure that their country doesn't become a corporate owned slave-labor powered mining pit that the US and UK want it to be.

    Saving one's country from industrial exploitation, FYI, is considered serving your country

    Because he would never be taken alive.
