Yeah for the tax cuts! It would be nice if they actually benefited anyone other than the mega wealthy. Here's some good info for you thanks to your buddy W who's had such a hard, hard 8 years. As he said, "It's hard work being the President." N_ s*&^ Dick Tracy. Can't wait until he's gone. Worst President Ever. Undeniable.

Hi: ####
Point 1: In my mind I see this way: Those people that "get it" are earning more money, building more job creating businesses, paying more taxes and generally doing quite well ... Thank You! The lower earners are those that listened to their iPod's and text-messaged their buddies during school time ... And joined the 40% of the current US crop of "students" that dropped out of school, ended up in dead-end jobs, went to the Emergency Room when they were sick (because they preferred to have a "hot car" and/or a gigantic plasma TV rather than medical insurance) and ... complain loudly about the great division between "have's and have-not's." The later group is in the "I want it NOW" group, but have no desire to WORK for it.

Point 2: While I certainly don't endorse everything JWB has done, (Or Carter, Clinton, Nixon, Johnson, JFK or Theodore Roosevelt and many others, for that matter) the problem is the country has needlessly become very polarized, like a school-yard fight. No one listens, or wins, but even worse, no one learns. J W Bush has done an excellent job under an excruciating situation. It's almost unforgivable to toss tomatoes when you are comfortably sitting at home in the greatest and safest country ever known to man. Easy to do ... But not too smart, in my opinion. "Worst President Ever. Undeniable" ... I don't think so!

Best regards, ####

Ps: I wish I were Bush's "buddy," but I don't run in those circles. About the only thing we have in common is we both flew F-102's. Everyone I knew that flew F-102's was a very accomplished person. (The F-102 was a single-engine, single-seat, supersonic all-weather fighter-interceptor. You either "had it together" or you made like a lawn-dart!)

"Worst ever" needs to be qualified, worse at what? Some say JEC was the "worse", in some regards he was ineffective. Getting Egypt and Israel to stop fighting was pretty cool. He did warned us about foreign oil...

President George (spelled with a "G", BTW), hmm, what is his greatest accomplishment? Strengthened constitution, increased regard in the eyes of the world, peace? To quote RWR, "Are we better off today than we were eight years ago?" Oh wait, "we" are not, by any reasonable measure We are not at peace, out constitution has been eroded and the world thinks less of of now than they did. I guess GWB may be the "worst ever". Just my opinion though, PMD.
