    Thank God. I want him to live to see the day he is replaced as the worst president in the history of this country by Obama. In the meantime, he can continue telling everyone how great he is. Even Clinton, the lying scumbag that he is, doesn't do that.

    Great. This is good news. Although I was one year too young to vote for your presidency, I still admire your courage and strength. You are what most former presidents should strive to be. Not once have you sat on the sidelines since leaving the WH. I wish you many more happy years.

    Now what did Ronald do when he left the WH? Oh that's right he counted ALL the money he made while sending the middle class almost into extinction. Great job Ronald. I hope you reaped what you sowed.

    This ol' peanut farmer probably ate rancid airline peanuts. What with egg, beef, and lettuce contamination peanuts were bound to be next.
