That is a big bucket list. Now, maybe he will get to see his 1,000 points of light.

I was just a kid then so I wasn't paying much attention. I always thought it had something to do with the people not really wanting war.

Ross Perot is what damned his chances at a second term. Every vote Ross Perot got is one that he took away from George Bush.

You've got to be fucking kidding me. That war was wildly popular and after our victory he had the highest approval rating of any president in history.

His real problem was that he was a bit of a pansy ass and was afraid to follow through with the Iraq War and he wanted to be gentlemanly about us defeating the Soviet Union so he didn't rub it in and demonstrate the world how truly evil communism is. That is why we are sitting in the mess we are in today.

Well, there's that and not being able to answer how much a loaf of bread and gallon of milk cost on average. Slick Willy was being portrayed as charismatic as JFK. Bush had no chance.

I'm just not much of a fan of the Bushes. Their legacy is the deep state, wars, shitty economies, and broken promises for the conservative base. Good family men, though. RIP.

Ross Perot should have won, that is for damn sure.

Sully, former President George H.W. #Bush's #servicedog, lies next to his casket ahead of national memorial services for Bush this week. "Mission complete," Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath said when he posted the photo on Twitter tonight. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...r-hero-n942831

Wish he had. Our country would be quite a bit different today if he had.
