Our nation, this generation, will lift the dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter and we will not fail. - George W. Bush Sept. 20, 2001.
Today is George W. Bush's 68th birthday. A man who, according to his father, "faced the greatest challenge of any president since Abraham Lincoln.

His presidency will be forever scared by the Sept. 11 terrorist attack and the Iraq War. The media loved to label the Texan as uncouth and uneducated. There is even a Wikipedia page called "Bushism," which is dedicated to his unique use of the English language.
Just last week, however, Americans began to realize Bush might not have been all that bad. A Quinnipiac University National Poll found that more people now dislike President Obama than Bush.
President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, 33 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Another 28 percent pick President George W. Bush.
Obama has been a better president than George W. Bush, 39 percent of voters say, while 40 percent say he is worse. Men say 43 - 36 percent that Obama is worse than Bush while women say 42 - 38 percent he is better. Obama is worse, Republicans say 79 - 7 percent and independent voters say 41 - 31 percent. Democrats say 78 - 4 percent that he is better.
The results must come as somewhat of a surprise to Bush and Obama as well. Happy Birthday, George W.
Happy Birthday! Boy do I miss you!
I miss him, too.
I miss his respect for the military, and the men and women in it.
Scared?? or Scarred?
The BS that is going on at the boarder is largely his fault. After September 11 and the country's panic over terrorist, sealing the boarder would have been completely acceptable.
And we won't even talk about the Department of Homeland Security!
And I voted for him five times (three as Governor and two as President). Still a million times better than the current idiot, but not what he could have been.
Last American president
Unfortunately he is a Bush, and his true allegiance is to the New World Order.
As do I. But damn little else.
GW Bush omly pissed me off a few times per year byt Obama pisses me off several times per day.
So do I.
a good man. i didn’t agree with a lot of his policies, and still don’t, but i respect him and i do miss him. an honest man and a first LADY between a pair of grifters,their unlady-like spouses, and their spawns of satan.
Not this Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan, Steaming Pant Load
Miss you. Big time.
GWB’s legacy: “He was better then Obama!”
Big freakin’ deal.
I wish him the best on his birthday. I think he’s a decent man. His record is mixed. On government spending, he was a failure.
I am willing to say happy birthday. I don’t miss him at all. He proposed amnesty for millions and a more open border policy within months of the 9-11 attacks. He allowed us to get bogged down in nation building rather than winning, kicking the ever loving out of the enemy and going home, he spent as much if not more than other presidents and lots of it on stupid stuff....including no child left behind.
I do not like the current occupant of 1600 but that doesn’t change the fact the overall W was a lousy president
All of the problems we are having at the border today, goes back to GWB. I’ll never forget him calling those who want to secure the border “Vigilantes.” He’s the reason why Republicans lost Congress in 2006 and why Obama is President now.
People for some reason are desperate to say nice thing about him but mostly all they can come up with is - he’s a really nice guy, his wife is charming, at least he’s better then Obama.
I can’t think of anything either.
Ross Perot brought us Bill Clinton.
Affirmative action brought us Barack Obama; Bush could have been the avatar of Reagan, and Obama would still have beaten McCain.
The unpopular GWB also declared that gay place in NYC in 1969 - I’ve forgotten its name — a national historic site.
The Stonewall Bar.
Happy Birthday President W. Miss you.
He cares about people, respects and appreciates our military, and loves and tries to do what he believed was best for the country (not to aggrandize himself). I didn’t always agree with his conclusions, but I’ll take a good, honest man any day over the Clintons and the Obamas. I sure miss him.
Happy birthday President Bush, and many more.
(and a stammering amnesty pimp to us)
Reagan earned that honor. Da Bushes & their adopted son Billy Jeff Clinton set us up for the abuses Obama has been able to inflict. W and his crew made putting GOP-E in power a priority. He loathed conservatives. GOP-E = DEM-E meaning DEM Enablers.
The GOP should have primaried him out in 2004. Da Bushes did us a lot of harm. Worse than that W instead of fixing what was wrong using a two house majority expanded federal agencies and their powers to be used against us. How can anyone respect a Republican who said he and Al Gore were not far apart on most issues? Move da Bushes to Juarez and let them be among friends.
Yes he does and I miss him and Laura also
