    Interesting article, but I think it's a sublime attempt to equate him to Hitler. Capitol Hill Blue is not an official publication, and because of that they hold as much weight in my book as any personal webpage on the net.

    I like that they are retired newspaper reporters. They have the perspective of having experienced many White House administrations, they know Washington inside and out, they have their sources. They can write honestly and without fear of negative consequences to their careers. The fact that they do this without any financial compensation is also reassuring to me. Old people rock! B)

    Well, I was going to criticize the article for not mentioning one single source - and accuse them of being very slanted to the left. But before doing so, I checked out their website and also came across this article:

    Chip, your article is staged in the "Opinion" section of the site, while Martine's is in the 'Bush Watch" section. The Bush Watch section as according to publishing morals and practices is supposed to be first-person observed. While an opinion section is "Not necessarily the opinion of blah blah"

    ah. thx. So, I guess now I can criticize the article for not mentioning one single source - and accuse them of being very slanted to the left. :lol:

    Regardless of what you think about the guy (Bush), the pressure he must be under is unimaginable. Add to that, the 800+ souls sitting on his shoulders. Must not make for an easy night's sleep....

    The pressures of being a president should have come as no surprise to to GW as he had his father to observe earlier. It's amazing that he thought that he could actually handle being the president. He is definitely not as capable as his dad in many ways.

    GHWB, Big Daddy Bush, had a resume ?

    Lets see. Supplying the vessels for the Bay of Pigs trojan horse invasion - Check
    Head of powerful internation spy agency - Check

    Great guy, but I'm really convinced that none of these people are worth it.

    But I also predict a huge natural disaster in the next month. So I may be losing my mind.

    On June 12th 1942, on his 18th birthday, Bush enlisted in the US navy. He became the navy's youngest pilot. He flew 58 combat missions against Japanese targets, and was shot down once, to be rescued by a submarine.

    At the end of the war Bush went to Yale, where he graduated in 1948.

    Bush decided to strike out on his own, and went into the oil business in Texas. Bush's business dealing in Texas were successful.

    In 1966 Bush ran for Congress as a Representative from the Houston area. He was elected. While in Congress he was a supporter of the Vietnam War. He voted for the very unpopular ( in his district) Civil Rights act of 1968. In 1970 Bush ran unsuccessfully for the Senate. He was appointed in 1971 by President Nixon Ambassador to the UN. From 1973-1974 he served as Chairman of the Republican Committee.

    In 1974 President Ford appointed Bush head of the US liaison China, effectively the US ambassador to China. From 1976-1977 Bush served as Director of the CIA.

    In 1979 he began an unsuccessful campaign for the Republican nomination for President. He lost out to Reagan. From 1981-1989 he served as Vice President. Bush played an active role as Vice President.
