“If I had to choose, Laura’s. I heard a little bit about it this morning and I kind of want to read the part where she thinks she and the president were poisoned. ”

“Laura’s would be more interesting, George’s would be more comical.”

“I’ll take a pass, I’m a busy guy.”

“Laura’s because I think historically any successful man does need the partnership of a strong woman who believes in his philosophy, and in who he is, and thereby complements the leadership of a man.”

Hard to believe but I still have an open mind about George and Laura.

Maybe he stepped in a pile when he took office and he lacked the experience to see what was happening around him.

Maybe I am naive about the Bush family.

Cheney, Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, and the rest of them you can toss in the toilet.

I would only be interested in reading his memoirs if he were currently serving time in leavenworth, for the crimes he commited against the working class people of this country.(those of us who pay his salary) Otherwise I could care less about the scumbag... besides, who wants to read about somebody who has led a priveledged life, having everything handed to them... basically stealing from the american public, before he ever even managed to purchase his two terms in the white house. How stupid can you people be to think that ba$tard ever truly gave a damn about america or it's people??? Are you all just a bunch of idiots?

uhhh tom, speaking of creepy avatars?

also, did you just see "Ghost Writer"? Cause I did and it was good. Not awesome, but good

also, Copperheads are way more interesting than Bushes.

I haven't found any snakes yet on my new country property. LOTS OF SKUNKS THOUGH! Double digits at least since I moved in this year. Most were road kill and a couple were shot by my neighbors. Live ones have been as close to my front door as a couple hundred feet chasing each other! eww...

Catching copperheads is a good afternoon's fun, some of you men are weenies! On another topic..

In the news: Austin is overrun by feral pigs. There's a saying there that if a feral sow has a litter of 6 piglets, only 8 are expected to survive.

Team Obama apparently feels threatened by Laura's book. Organizing for America has hijacked her web address.

Neither, I rarely have time for fiction, unless I'm on a plane. Then I prefer action/adventure/historical...

I just took some andini. I'm hallucinating. Is Rob Zombie's book out yet?

Quantitative Researcher...? Whatever pays the bills I suppose.

Where is Andini?

With these books coming out, there is no better time to be illiterate! If I want to read a book about killing someone with a car, I would read Ted Kennedy's book. If I want a book about coke, I would read Rick James's book as both of these books would be better reads than the Bush's books

TOB, that's over eight summers. One year I don't think we had one copperhead. One summer I'm thinking 4-5. Surprised one of our two dogs haven't been nailed yet. Your google pic appears to be a very mature copperhead. Like everything out here---different year to year. This year for example, the morels just flat were not to found. I found 20 after several days of checking my 'confirmed' spots. Last year, I found a grocery bag full.

Tom - The pic is just a google pic. I wouldn't be that near a copperhead if it was that pissed off. 18? Jebus. That puts me to shame. Fortunately, I have a lot of black rat snakes that I have heard will keep copperheads out of the area. I've seen youtube videos of king snakes whooping up on copperheads, so I have no clue if the rat snake thing is true.

I really hope that they don't really have to read one or the other.

I already know whats in the books: Bush's book, paraphrased, "I'm stupid." Laura's book, paraphrased, "I'm with stupid."

Wow, I actually agree in part with Tom.

I do not read self serving bios either. Regardless of which side.

Tom Shewmon 3 years, 11 months ago

TOB, same here with copperheads. Eighteen as of last summer, not including 'roadkills' along our property on the road. Maybe you don't want to say, but what do you do with them? What about the one in the picture? What always lurks in the back of my mind is somewhere out there is grandpa and grandma and daddy and mommy copperheads because the ones I've encountered are never more than 2' -----maybe 27-28" tops. I've seen 3-footers plus in SE Missouri----that's a big copperhead.

The_Original_Bob 3 years, 11 months ago

Tom - Yep. A Copperhead. My place is lousy with them. I had to change my biscuits and gravy pic because it always made me hungry.

Sarah Palin. But then again I don't think she read a book let alone wrote one. And agree with your post Spacehog.

0

Tom Shewmon 3 years, 11 months ago

Oh, the book? I won't read either, just like I don't read any other memoirs. 'Who cares? ' is my take. But I'm sure W's book will be picked apart and ridiculed more than most. The "he didn't even write the book" thread will likely circulate, when it's common for these to have "ghost writers".

TOB, your avatar is creepy. Did you take that.....appears to be a copperhead? I'm looking down all the time now, especially on a day like today.

George W. Bush: A great president, or the GREATEST president?

0

spacehog 3 years, 11 months ago

I'll probably catch heat for this, but I don't blame Bush for screwing things up as much as I do Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld. Bush is definitely not very bright, but you have to remember, the President makes very few decisions on his own, even though W. said he was "the decider". He was surrounded and listened to the wrong people. I think Cheney has secretly been the Puppet Master since George H.W. Look how relativley little Obama has done so far. Cheney won't let him do anything. And I voted for Obama. Now we're occupied with this stupid thing in AZ. How freakin' hard is it? If you're here illegally, get the hell out.

I've already read Chronicles Vol. 1 by Bob Dylan. Can't wait for Vol. 2. I would also recommend "Down th Highway", a Bob biography by Howard Sounes.
