    I was tough on the guy but I wanted to be the first to thank Former President George Bush for his service. He gave of himself to serve this nation and did what he thought was best. Now I pray the Lord continues to keep you in His caring arms and watches over you the rest of your days.

    Thanks You... :thumbsup:

    He made mistakes... but I am thankful that he was our president. The thing is, Obama will make mistakes too. Believe it or not...

    I agree with the above.

    unfortunately, it appears that many have no class: from MTV's blog...
    If I could wish these people under Taliban rule for a half-hour, I would.

    Yes, I hope the Lord protects him, and I hope G.W. Bush has a mansion waiting for him in heaven. But I cannot thank him for the last two years. He personally set the conservative movement back at least 28 years.

    I was critical with Mr. Bush's policies when I needed to be. However I don't think I ever thought he was a bad person. In fact I happen to think his father, George H.W. Bush, was one of the best Presidents of the modern era. Not just because of his policies but because of his belief in and support of his family. He is a real proud father and it shows. George W Bush got my vote in '00 and '04. I came to disagree with several of his choices but I agreed with him more than I disagreed with him. I also think many people are critical of him for things over which he had little/no control. I am sure he has been looking forward to this day and I pray that his retirement is peaceful and productive.

    The lack of civility by many people in the crowd was disturbing. Chanting Obama at the inauguration ceremony is unacceptable. Also mocking the current President (Bush) was a grand display of many people's lack of respect for our country and the Presidency. People in this country need to learn some manners, respect, and civility.

    I liked President Bush even when I disagreed with him which happened more than I liked. The crowd booing and hissing - such distastefulness, but we have seen a downward cycle of disrespect for others.

    When in Rome I suppose.

    I agree with you, there. I don't like Bill Clinton, but I couldn't be disrespectful of him, in person. In this nation, we have really become boorish.

    He seems likable, on a personal level, in what I've seen over the past eight years, but I don't know Mr. Bush (we can say that now). I feel one needs to at least meet someone before passing judgment on whether or not they or likable.

    No, not many of them, but I do like that, according to you, Mr. Bush (we can say that now) has set the conservative movement back at least 28 years.


    BTW, my comments in parentheses are directed to Revmitchell. :laugh:

    I agree. But when generations now have been raised with abortion on demand that does not respect the sanctity of human life, that leads to disrespect for all people and institutions and lack of manners. It is typical of what we have become as a Nation. Sadly. And it is irreversible IMHO, too late, too far gone.

    I have always been respectful of the Office of the President of the United States, even though some who have held that position have not shown proper respect for it.

    I hope this president will respect the office he holds and approaches his responsibilities seeking God's face with humility. He is responsible now and Laura finally has her husband back. I wish them blessings, peace, and health.

    So now abortion leads to bad manners? This coming from a Christian who couldn't bring them self to pray for our new President?

    The removal of God from our society leads to the destruction of the nation.

    Dragonfly, you don't like what he did, but do like the results ? I don't get it.

    Yes, it does. Lack of respect for human life leads to disrespect for anything and everything, including God.

    I really don't need your personal attack and condescending remarks. How many times did you pray for President Bush?

    I have prayed for the new president BTW and posted it in another thread in the News forum. I pray President and Obama and his supporters will be convicted about the grevious sin of abortion, of destroying the life God says He knew before that life was formed in the womb.

    I also pray that President Obama and his supporters will have a life changing experience to know God in an intimate way like never before. In fact, I pray that for all of us.

    Thank you for your post, LB. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to add to my prayer for our new president! :thumbs:

    Now can we please get back on topic. Do you have any kind words of gratitude for our Former President, GW Bush?

    Half of all Russians want Stalin back and Hitler would get the vote in Germany. Half of all Americans would vote a 3rd term for Bush.

    So people who support Bush are akin to Hitlerites?

    You may have put up the most astoundingly ignorant post in the history of the BB. Perhaps a third-grade history book and a rudimentary course in logic would be beneficial.
