So...What do you think George W. Bush is doing right now?

    I mean right this minute.

    My guess: not reflecting on anything.

    Do you miss him that much?

    Yes. Yes I do. smile

    Actually no, but it's just weird how all ex-presidents disappear over night when they leave office. At least for a time.

    Hopefully, in his case, for a long time. Sometimes, though, I can't help but wonder what it's like to be him.

    Personally, I couldn't care less what the Shrub is doing now.  Being shoved down our throats for eight years was 7 years and 364 days too many.  btw, I was ROTFLMAO on hearing that 1800 tickets for his Welcome Home party the day he (thankfully and finally) left office went unused - and they were FREE!  Guess others also couldn't care less.

      So, is Obama now "being shoved down our throats"?

        Considering he beat McCain by a landslide, the answer is 'definitely not'.

          So "shoved down our throats" has to do with the margin by which a president wins an election? That doesn't seem to make sense.

            The Supreme Court declared him the "winner" in 2000, by ordering Florida to stop re-counting votes.  Personally, I don't think the SC had the legal standing to do so - that this is something only FL's state courts had jurisdiction over, but then my daddy wasn't an ex-prez with tons of family oil $$ and my brother wasn't the guv of Florida.

              You folks need to get over the fact that Bush was in fact elected twice. The Supreme Court did its job and their jurisdiction is not a matter of your 'opinion.' Those votes were counted over and over even after all was said and done and it always came out short for Gore. It was close but he lost. It happens. Let it go.

    One thing that stuck me was that after he was gone CNN and other media attempted to set him up as a misunderstood or may I say misjudged president. He was said to be intelligent, he was said to have read 300 something books during his last 3 years, he was said to have done what he did kinda sarcastically. And then we were left with that. I guest American history cannot and will not afford to have had a stupid president.

      Isn't that the saddest part? You know that over the coming decades and centuries it will all just turn into "he was just a lovable goof ball" at best or "he was an unrecognized genius in his time" at worst.

      Makes you wonder about other figures from history (US or or other) and what their contemporaries and/or people really thought of them...

      Comics and coloring books don't count. During the first 4 years, Bush bragged that he didn't read.  Gee, we never would've guessed...and pretty amazing since he was married to a former librarian...

      That's just CNN. Three/four versions of spin. Don't believe it's America.  The majority did get sick of the situation and did speak out clearly with a strong majority vote this time around.

      Maybe we could learn him to write with a pen. Or turn on a computer.

    I think G.W. is back at the ranch happy to dump the world of crap on someone else.  Being president would take a toll on anyone.  As much as I opposed Mr. Bush on just about every topic; I wish him well.

    In general I dont miss Bush in Office, that's my personal opinion those whodo please dont take offense there are things he did that have hurt and its unfair that Obama has to pick up after his shit he pulled. Bush saw a few things that he could have addressed and fixed and if he did we would be better off as a nation right now.
