If these great forefathers sat down with George Bush today, as part of a Commission to reform the United States, after almost eight years of destruction, what advice would they give Bush, and most importantly, would he take the advice of such great American leaders?

No, they would misunderestimate the Decider's intellectualityism.

NO! GWB does not take advice. He knows what he knows and that is that.

No GWB deals with reality and facts not feelings and fantasy.

GW Bush deals with horrendous profits for the rich CEO's and their shareholders- which includes oil companies, drug companies, and health insurance companies.
He also deals cold heartedly in the death of young American men and women and does not bat an eye-

I am rather insulted that anyone could compare our founding fathers to anything remotely "Presidential" about Bush.

Those guys were actually very literate and well spoken. I think George would have trouble understanding them. But if they did have a discussion, it might go something like this...

Abe Lincoln - "Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed."

George Bush - "I will not withdraw, even if Laura and Barney are the only ones supporting me."

George Washington - The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion.

George Bush - "God told me to strike at al Qaeda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam [Hussein], which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East."

Thomas Jefferson - All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

George Bush - "Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

Default Confession

Many years ago, I had what may be called a "hero". He was a huge man, but very gentle. He lived in Nevada, beneath snow-capped peaks. He was part of a prominent family, who sort of dominated the whole neighborhood. He ate dinner each night, served by a foreign cook. (Don't know for sure if this put any American cooks out of work). He was kind and self-effacing and humble. And, by some quirk of genetics never fully explained, he was [u]the ONLY MEMBER OF HIS FAMILY WHO SPOKE WITH A TEXAS TWANG[u]. I loved that man, and felt sorry when he passed away. I learned much from him; he was my "Big Buddy". His name, by the way, was Hoss Cartwright.
Much later, another man entered my life. His name wasn't Hoss, it was Bubba. I don't know about his personal chef, but he's quite a fan of foreign labor. He, too is part of a prominent, powerful family. He doesn't live in Nevada, though; he lives in a big place up on Pennsylvania Avenue, behind a big old gate. He, like my Big Buddy, is also the only one in his family who speaks with a Texas twang.
At this point, though, the comparison begins to unravel....don't quite know what to think about this "other" guy. I somtimes feel he's not "shootin' straight" with me....I still miss my "Big Buddy"...
