    41 & 43 both ran up deficits. Took democrat Presidents to clean up their mess.

    By the time he's done, 44 will have run up more than both combined – TWICE.

    George W Bush along with Cheney, Pearl, and Rumsfeld should all be tried for crimes against humanity by the world court.

    They have reduced the United States to at the least irrelevant and at the worst a breeding ground for those who would commit genocide.

    We should all hang our heads in shame.

    Happy Birthday H.W. You're 89 and and I love your socks. You always seemed to be a man of integrity and I admire that trait. At the same time, I'm sorry your eldest disappointed you too, at times.

    My family sends their best regards also.

    Can we kick down for a new pair of presidential slippers for #41. Looks like he's loosing the sole on one.

    I'm a Democrat and a bit older than most of you. He was a good president and 40 years from now we will probably learn how he saved us from Regan. Happy Birthday Mr. Bush!
