He never changed course, no matter how disastrous the course someone else set for him, because to do so would have required courage and awareness of ones mistakes, and George W. Bush has neither.
Same can be said of Barack Obama.

Big ego,....never wrong,.....throws temper tantrums when the congress doesn't bow to his wishes.

Thank goodness we have a congress to stand in his way.

I wager a dollar or two that Obama had rather be ANYWHERE in the world instead of Dallas.
So why would he give up a chance to have his pic taken with all the other presidents? That would look strange.

"President Bush on Monday promoted his campaign to boost homeownership among minorities, saying he wanted the number of black and Latino homeowners to increase by at least 5.5 million by the end of the decade. "And that's got to change for the good of the country," Bush said. "And I believe those of us who have been given positions of responsibility must do everything we can to spotlight the [American] dream and to make sure the dream shines in all neighborhoods, all throughout our country."

In his current budget, Bush is seeking nearly $2.4 billion in tax credits for developers to help spur the rehabilitation or new construction of up to 200,000 homes for purchase by low-income households."

DECEMBER 16, 2003: Bush Signs American Dream Downpayment Act of 2003

"One of the biggest hurdles to homeownership is getting money for a down payment. This administration has recognized that, and so today I'm honored to be here to sign a law that will help many low-income buyers to overcome that hurdle, and to achieve an important part of the American Dream . . . Last year I set a goal to add 5.5 million new minority homeowners in America by the end of the decade. That is an attainable goal; that is an essential goal. And we're making progress toward that goal. . . . This administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country. And this is a good time for the American homeowner."

Excellent.

The right-wing shills will shamelessly try to rewrite history, but Bush has his fingerprints all over the Great Recession.

As far as blaming Congress for the Iraq War...just embarrassing.

GWB = the worst ever

Oh, and The Elder is standing.

Where's the Kleenex!

I think I heard him say, "Was that too long?" He didn't speak much but he is very feeble. The next time they all get together may be at his funeral.

I think the best speech President Clinton made was for the memorial of the Columbine deaths.

You never heard the joke about Clinton's library and massage parlor? I think Leno told it.

What happened to all the George is illiterate jokes? I left the thread for a while and they seemed to fade. Everyone got serious..I guess a library is a good thing....I was just wondering - Is all the material contained in the library about George W Bush? Is there a pop up book with him flying a fighter?

See what happens when a president caves into what the Dems want? Barney Frank was pushing this hard and saying it would work and all was just fine.
