    Default Now this is Presidential

    Hey Obama, this is how a President should act- definitely a man with principals, and "for the people".

    Character is something some have, others don't.

    All I look at is the 24 SS folks in the picture - they don't come cheap - but let's see, "Read my Lips" & the incident in the grocery store where he hadn't ever experienced going through the line. I'm just not sure how Pres he was . He's an elitist, his son was better but still didn't know how to balance the public checkbook, doesn't make one want to vote for another Bush .

    Maybe those 24 SS guys represent multiple shifts? I'm guessing that these guys have a better job than the fellas on the Clinton detail

    I just believe lifetime SS protection a bit much for the taxpayer .

    George Bush Sr. was one of the best presidents we ever had. His personal history even before he was president is worthy of being a book. If you don't believe me then read the book.

    No need to be so churlish Marvin; the thread was not about his presidency but about his decency and class, qualities sorely lacking in the current POTUS. And I'd bet, if you asked him, he too would think the no. of SS isn't needed nor was requested by him.

    I do not doubt the Bush's decency nor class - at least the image they project to the public. They have chosen to be public people & as such those of us you might class as churlish are paying their bills & living with the consequences of their actions/inactions. We have a right to criticize them. IMO the last POTUS that understood his position in the scheme of things was a guy named Truman. Though he did a few things I disagreed with, he did not believe being POTUS qualified him to a lifetime of leisure & oversight @ taxpayer expense.

    The rule in politics is (& I'm sure I do not need to pass this on) "they who are beloved probably didn't do much in office" .

    he and his son are a step above Obama
    They are both liars and globalists and have greatly aided in the destruction of our country.. Remember NAFTA,,, started by bush and put into effect during the clinton adm.

    Just because someone comes across a good and wholesome doesn't mean they are. They are known by the fruit they have produced.
