    It should be called "How I abused my power to get rid of a man I did not like."

    And didn't care about anything else going on in my country !

    The guy had to make some hard decisions, not doubt. And it will be interesting to find out why he made the ones he did, since to the vast majority of the worlds population he consistently made bad ones.

    We all speculate it was because he was a nincompoop, or he had evil yes-men influencing his callow ideas of what constitutes policy, or he was under the evil influence of extreme fundamentalist religion.

    While I doubt it, this may help us understand why he decided to lead us all down a rat hole, leaving his followers to try and blame everyone else for the outcome.

    Wow!! I had no idea there were so many geniuses out there who are smarter than George W. Wake-up call folks... the statistics are not in your favor on this one. Bush has far more insight than most of you and your precious Obama. But don't worry, the Obama fairytale will end.... and I don't suspect it will be a "lived happily ever after" ending. Looking forward to Bush's book. Hopefully I haven't been taxed to poverty by the time it comes out because I would really like to buy it.

    How about naming the book 'How I Fooled Those Dumb Conservatives Into Voting For Me TWICE!'

    All of you who are so quick to judge should remember that your Obama is not perfect either. He is showing that he is even more incompetent than Bush. You should at least be grateful that Bush has kept this country safe since 9/11. And don't get so angry when Obama gets criticized because you certainly can dish it out, so I hope you can also take it.

    This man has lived a depraved life and portrays a PR world. More of his phantabulising is coming to light. A completely revolting human being right down to his core, wherever that might be.

    He became president, most of you will fade into history as 'no one special'. Mock him all you want but its just anger over your own failures.
