He was funny on Leno last night.

Sorry to all those in line, you'll most likely not get a chance to meet him, and if you do it'll be for long enough for him to sign your book.

'Hundreds lining up at Sandy Costco for Bush book signing' - Article


It's like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn't happen.

"The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons.' - George W. Bush - Ohio Speech 10/7/2002

'US gives up search for Iraq WMD'
'Former head of UN weapons inspections Hans Blix also said there was no surprise in the announcement.
"We have believed that there weren't any weapons since around May or June 2003...' - BBC News - 01/12/05

*'Body of fallen Grantsville soldier arrives home to neighbors, thousands of flags' - By Alex Cabrero - Deseret News - 10/19/10

'TOOELE Less than a month after leaving Utah, Army Pfc. Jordan Byrd came back home Tuesday, though it's not the way his family would have ever wanted. (sic)
Byrd was shot and killed in Afghanistan last week.'

P.T. Barnum was right.

Pagan keeps posting the exact same news articles for his sources. Why not post the deaths of soldiers since Barack the annointed one came to office? Why not post the escalation of the wars since Barack came to office? Remember the civilian deaths in Pakistan because of Barack?

God Bless George Bush! He will go down as one of our finer presidents.

And did you forget that Obama had promised to get us out of this silly war back in 2009?
I guess you have that convenient short term memory eh...if you can call 2 years short term.

I would love to see Obama do a book signing on how I scammed America and see how many people wait and line up for him.

A good man, an honest man, and a good President, with a good book.

Far better than his predecessor or successor in every respect.

As a Democrat, I disagreed with GWB most of the time.

HOWEVER, I think it's sad that we are so polarized as a country, that SOME HERE have lost respect for the United States of America AND its duly-elected President.

I respect our President, and ALWAYS with him or her well, no matter who it is. I reserve the right to disagree and protest when I believe he is wrong.

But disrespect? Absolutely not.

Why? Because I'm ethical and moral, and unlike MOST here, I am the wife and daughter of proud US Veterans (dating back to the Civil War).

I can't believe the police are there and they aren't arresting this lawless criminal for admitting to torture.

Odd that they're not using airport scanners or pat-downs. I guess the ex-prez is not as important an aircraft. Wait a minute...maybe it's because those airport searches aren't any better than what they're using at Costco, ya think?

By the way, I'm an ethical veteran who thinks a president needs to EARN respect before it's given. This one didn't earn mine.

"It's like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn't happen."

In case you didn't notice the war is still going on two years after your boy friend took office. Didn't he promise to end the war? Bush probably could have got us out quicker that this.

"It's like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn't happen."

In case you didn't notice there is still a war going on. And guess what? Bush has been out of office for two years. Didn't Obama promise to end the war? Bush probably could ended it quicker than Obama is. Oh, and did you forget that little thing Bush had to deal with called 9/11?

Queen Creek, AZ

Wasn't there a reason for the war in the first place or have some of you forgotten. If or current President was in office when 9/11 happened, he would have apologized to the terrorists for us Americans having those big buildings.

Tell me again what 9/11 had to do invading Iraq?
Tell me how the worlds greatest military power, with the latest remote sensing capabilities and ordinance for the most hardened fortification let BinLaden escape through the remote hills of Tora Bora?
Re: Ted
Time will tell if history has the same fondness for GWB as you do.
I think the clarity of years will place the perspective of Bush as perhaps a willing puppet of a manipulative and deceitful vice-president and secretary of defense.

God bless George W. Bush.

He is sorely missed.

Salt Lake City, UT

Wow! x4 responsese!

Thank you.

Now, are some willing to take responsiblity for the over 4,000 dead Americans due to 'faulty inteligence?'

It appears not. Some offer nothing but opinion and place blame on others.

'GOP chairman: Afghan 'war of Obama's choosing' - By Philip Elliott - AP - Published by DSNews - 07/02/10

'WASHINGTON Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele says Afghanistan is "a war of Obama's choosing" and the conflict "is not something the United States has actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in," comments that drew an immediate rebuke from Republicans and Democrats.'

Watch some claim they kept America 'safe'...

after 9/11.

Not before.

Sandy, UT

@Pete: of course there was a reason for the war, but not the one you're most likely thinking of. A U.S. invasion had in planning stages for some time, but 9/11 gave the Neocon-in-Chief the excuse he and his administration were looking for. I really wish you and so many people like you would do a little more investigating into the workings of the Bush administration, especially at how they "cooked the books" for these wars. They were all so unnecessary.

Are you bent out of shape more than normal since you weren't the first to comment? Did you forget to hit refresh between from 11:30 until 11:39?

It's ok bud, we all fail sometimes.

Anyways, ditto to Liberal Ted and MVH.

Bush is great!

Pete, which war are you talking about?

The false Iraq War, which was supposed to pay for itself (per Donald Rumsfeld)?

The poorly-managed Afghanistan War, that has been such a quagmire that we're stuck there ... and the NON-veterans want that war to continue!

Your false claim against our current President is just another sign of the anti-American attitude infecting our country.

... and such an elegant, dignified venue... befitting of his presidential stature.

-sold 600 whole books... at $20. a whopping $12,000. That will cover the cost of a quarter of the security costs from the airport. Good economics... the same we are living from his 8 years.

Bush is a decent man and served honorably. Didn't agree with some of his decisions as pres but he led well immediatley after 911 and the first 5 years of his presidency the economy was booming. The Iraq war was a sad mistake and I think he could have waited before jumping in but hind sight is 20/20.. he acted on the intel given him at the time. I think his book is a way for him to at least explain why he did what he did for anyone who honestly wants to know (many don't). The thing I miss about Bush was his straight talking style .. no hidden agenda. With Obama you KNOW what you hear isn't the truth and his stupid teleprompter makes him distant and predictable. Also, you would never see Bush appearing on comedy shows and on other "unpresidential venues" like Obama. Bush respected the presidency unlike Obama. Finally, Bush hasn't said a single word cricial of Obama because he is a principled man. Obama is a cheap shot artest.
