    There is no greater quality a person can have than the ability to laugh at oneself. Bush had effortless charisma. I didn't like much of what he did in his presidency, but his likeability is undeniable.

  • There's still Hope

    I still have a lot of respect for President George W Bush. He has always and will always care deeply for his military personal. President Obama on the other hand well that’s a different story.

    President bush gave me an moded Xbox 360 controller and it saved my life back in middle school. My friend Joel taught I had the fastest trigger finger in the world. I would use an Barrett and I would start spraying niggas 1v1 quick scope. Everyone got so mad at me and start kicking me from every game I enter with toxic fireman!

    He now seems like a new and relaxed person who has had 1 ton of weights removed from his shoulders. As down as I was on him when he was in office, I would much rather have him there now than that guy sitting there right now.

    To anyone who is reading this: George W. Bush is almost certainly smarter than you are, he also happens to be funny and personable.
    He's certainly smarter than I am.
    The leftist media managed to convince much of the nation that he was a stupid man, they are using those same tactics with the current president, and they will continue to do so with all future Republican presidents.

  • icecreamforcrowhurst

    For those of you too young to have lived through Junior’s terms in office let me tell you the lies and Orwellian doublespeak never stopped, in those years every day brought a new outrage. All the damage: war, torture, death, the looting of the treasury to fund war, creating Dept. of Homeland Security (absolutely nobody know what it does except devour $), financial meltdown, Abu Gaib, Halliburton, Blackwater, the Florida no-count, destruction at home and abroad in massive doses the list goes on and on. It’s disgusting to witness the whitewashing of that catastrophic legacy especially by so-called liberal media like this.

    President George W. Bush and Laura were excellent parents! Their daughters have wonderful manners and good mature attitudes! President Bush was a great husband and father! He did a great job as commander in chief! His only weakness was the economy and even so, the Economic Meltdown of 2008 was not his fault.

    Interesting story about him pulling up to the White House in a purple gremlin. Not a Mercedes Limo. His family was very wealthy at that time. But his Father instilled in him that he had to make it on his own. He Graduated Harvard and Yale. And Could fly a fighter jet, with skin thicker than an Elephant. Pretty good man George W. Made mistakes, of course he did. But did what he thought was best at that time. Hindsight is 20/20 after all.

    President George W Bush was my commander in chief while serving and I believe in respecting everyone's opinion about him however there are some that truly underestimate and portray the magnitude of being in that position. I didn't care for President Obama however he was also my commander-in-chief and being a citizen and loving the country that I came to understand what it means to have served it would never say what most people say about their president no matter who is he liked it and I think it's downright embarrassing how people regardless of their constitutional rights can say what they say about their leader. I know and understood can't make everyone happy and no matter what someone's always going to never research or educate them self on a matter but they'll definitely have an uneducated opinion on what they believe and I say this not to disrespect anyone but only because that's how I thought myself until I realized about six years into my career that certain things might seem mediocre and unimportant but until you realize that maybe what you took for granted or misunderstood after being able to ascertain a different Outlook I have nothing but respect for anyone who tries to do their Duty and serve this country from the president down to the most novice civil servant support your country support your leaders do what you can and for those who just throw out there opinion of disrespect before doing that try to think of what type of solution would solve what you disagree with. There are preteens that talk as if they we're old enough to even know what the hell is going on and that just blows my mind

    My dad is a marine who proudly serve his country. He told me that America is the greatest, not by the citizenship alone, but mostly for the leadership. In the eyes of our enemies, Bush named America the strongest country through out the world. It will take many year for our enemies to forget the hard fought we deliver to them. Our man and woman didn't die in vain, but those who forget their sacrifice can put that in vain.

    They hated Reagan! Called him Ronnie Ray.-Gun. The press and the left hated the Bushes also. They loved Obama even though he was a terrible President. They wouldn’t say anything bad against Bill Clinton when he should have been impeached and imprisoned. Now they hate President Trump. Gee, no fake news throughout American news history

    My God, Kimmel is so ate up with his liberalism. This is what happens when you give somebody millions of dollars, that couldn’t otherwise make a living based on practical skills.....A microcosmic example of America in general.

    • Michael Tveten
      Michael Tveten 17 days ago

      Friday Night Lights I respect your comment. It is my opinion that “Sales” is not a practical skill........And, I do not accept Kimmel as a good “communicator”. He is blatantly divisive in his vitriol, whereas a good communicator, invites commentary to be discussed and weighed. Also, any person worthy of themselves, doesn’t use the luxury of their position to “cry” to an international audience and bemoan the object of their political targets. I am open to any criticism, and welcome thought provoking debate, but I also call it as I see it.

    • Friday Night Lights
      Friday Night Lights 17 days ago

      @ Michael Tveten - Somebody who makes millions of dollars a year easily has the practical skills to make a living in another way. I guarantee you that his communication skills are excellent and that he could make a lot of money in a variety of areas of sales. You are either being jealous or pretentious.

I still don't get it being that he his multi millionaire unlike me, struggling to make ends meet and forced to buy Obamacare...yeah, or pay that penalty on April 15.

    He's always made FUN of himself, even during his presidency, or snl, or whenever! Which- what decent human being doesn't laugh at themself?
    If people could only get past the political "side" that they're so eagerly to be on, they'd see this dude is a for-real, just, down to earth, Southern, Texan, father, person, who happened to be the Presidential Elect at the most devastating circumstance that had ever occurred on live news, in front of everyone to see. I think he did well ... more especially, with the circumstances he so happened to be a part of as a leader of a nation. Cut him some slack already! Trrrryyyyy to not already think the worst of this human being and instead (for laughs and giggles) listen to him as if he were actually another random human! Heck, imagine if it were the words spoken by the same president you voted for..... (ooohs and ahhhs...) C'mon y'all, lighten up a tad.... please
