Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

George Romney

He was the CEO of AMC. His great grand parents were polygamous. His mother was German. Hmm, well, I guess you can't be all bad.

Oh, today is a good day! The Shrub gets his one last bite of the apple with his State of The Union message tonight, marking an ever lowering measure of relevancy. His potential successors either use him as a pejorative or they ignore him outright. He will be uttered along with the names of Hoover and Benjamin Harrison by future historians.

In thirty years, children will know the names Reagan, Carter, Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ford, and the others from federal buildings, meaningful legislation, and decisive leadership.

Who will know George W. Bush?

You do read Scott Adam's blog, right?

George Bush could be viewed as the greatest president in history.

Ugh.

Hmmm... What comedy special have I missed?

I wonder if his presidential library will be in Baghdad? If it not, it should be.
