      We don't hate people usually; we hate cartoons we create of people. I remember many things that GWB said and did that were kind. Maybe they were faked. But he did say to Gore that, although he couldn't wish him success, he did wish him well. He also spoke to a young Senator called Barack Obama and told him that he had tremendous potential and could go all the way to the top but to be wary of people around him who might seem friendly but didn't have his interests at heart (he was probably thinking about Cheney at the time). He also suggested that Obama use Purel frequently to avoid colds. Listen, people who get to be President have got to possess some charm. They have to be very competitive and they have to be interested in people. Bush had those qualities and Romney doesn't.

      I can't believe I am defending George W. but, after what I have seen this last year or so, somehow he doesn't look so bad.

      The universe may have a meaning and a purpose, but it may just specifically not include you.
