    President Bush's term of office included one of the worst attacks on the U.S. in our history. He also presided over two of the longest running wars as well. So I could see why there would be some interest.

    No. . .that bulk purchases drive sales. Nova lives pretty close to Scientology central. This is from a Co$ website. They encourage bulk purchases, and give discounts for 'em.

    So...yeah.

    Oddly enough, I have no animosity for George Bush. I probably should, but between the perception that he wasn't actually running the country, and the stupid shit people accused him of, I experience the same kind of noise blocking that automatically engages when the people on The View are all talking at once.

    And of course, some of the same people who accuse him of this are the same ones who accuse him of masterminding 9/11. I personally love the idiots like you who believe that there were others holding the strings for Bush yet Obama is running the show now.

    I miss Bush more and more the longer Obama is in office. :p Don't get me wrong, Bush signed his name to a lot of garbage legislation and gross misappropriation of tax dollars, in addition to erosion of our freedoms and civil liberties. But Obama's done nothing but use that as a starting point.

    I don't think I've ever gotten more than ten pages into a president's memoir, with the exception of President Grant's - and that wasn't about his presidency.

    Hell, if Ride Me Roughly doesn't recommend it then this is definitely must read material.

    Why are you give to assume facts not in evidence?

    I have never accused Bush of making or letting 9/11 happen.
    I have never accused Obama of being in power. In fact, when a dear friend of the Quaker persuasion was telling me that he was supporting Obama rather than Hillary, because my friend and his wife (mostly his wife) opposed the war (Iraq) my response was flippant, "Oh, those things are decided at a much higher level."

    I'll also be the first to say that I am tremendously disappointed in Obama. I voted for him for one primary reason, I hoped to get SIngle Payer health care in place, or at least a public option so that my self employed family could buy secure health insurance at a reasonable price and that as a nation we could stop throwing money down a hole on healthcare.
