    Thank GOD!!!!!

    Last free meal on us. May you go back to Texas "W" and disappear into oblivion.

    Arrogant and unapologetic to the ned. I hope someday someone takes the time to read this fool a newspaper from "mainstream media so that he can really find out what he really did to America. And by mainstream, I don't mean his fan club paper called "Fox News" and all of his cheerleaders who work there.

  4. Barack Obama is still just B.O.

    Farewell Mr President.
    Hoping that congress gets it's act together although with Pelosi and Reid I don't hold much hope.
    I am holding judgement on Obama until he actually does something rather than just talk.

    So how do you think the white house chef would prepare humble pie, because GWB surely needs some right now? They can't kick him out fast enough.

    Thank you to the Bush family for administering with truth and dignity. Sadly, tomorrow the neighborhood goes down the porta-potty.

    To Ann Jacobus: How does it feel to live in fantasyland? Truth is not a choice word to describe this presidency.

    You're just one of the bitter bees who will not waste time trashing our president even before he's had a chance to prove himself.

    You do not represent the New America

    But have fun brooding for the next 4 years. 🙂

    Thank you Mr. President for all the good you did for this country and freedom loving people around the world. Some people feel safer when they have a government that takes control of their lives instead of protecting them from tyranny, but thank you for promoting and defending freedom like all the fallen heroes from the past wars that this country has courageously fought in. God bless you and Laura.
