George W. Bush hasn’t often looked back longingly at his presidency since leaving the White House, but he also hasn’t found an airline to compete with Air Force One.

“A lot of people ask me, you know, do I miss much about being president,” Bush said Wednesday. “The answer’s really no. I mean I miss the people I served with. I miss Air Force One. In eight years they never lost my baggage.”

Bush’s comments, reported by Politico, came during an event at his eponymous institute in Dallas.

“I do miss saluting the men and women who volunteered to defend our nation during the war,” Bush said. “Many are coming home and are preparing for new missions as civilians, and I intend to salute these men and women for the rest of my life.”

And he's still looking for those WMD's in Iraq too.  Reminds me of Elmer Fudd.

Poor Mr. Bush!!!


I'll bet he also misses being able to fabricate evidence and trump up lies to allow him to go ahead invading countries whose leaders he doesn't like.


I'll bet he also misses strutting onto aircraft carriers under big "Mission Accomplished" signs when the death toll of Americans in wars he started has only begun to rise.


I'll bet he also misses being able to relax regulatory oversight on financial industry operatives so they can speculate with other people's money and trigger massive recessions.


I'll bet he also misses being able to campaign against gay marriage.


I'll bet he also misses smearing Sen. McCain's family because he has adopted a dark-skinned daughter.


I'll bet he also misses having all sorts of shills going around badmouthing, screaming at and hacking away at people who disagree with him.


I'll bet he also misses screwing up completely armed incursions in Afghanistan, failing to get bin Laden and then being able to start another war as a diversion.


Yup, I'll bet he misses all sorts of things.

To those who have been criticizing and insulting Dubya, now you got what you wanted all along. The worst President this country ever had. He just beat Carter through no effort on his part. Just being what he is. An incompetent nincompoop.

And many are not coming home. They'll never have the chance to fly on an airplane or be civilians.

Go away.

@MarshalMauer  I'm never going to forget his purposeful joke about not finding WMD's.   


Here's part of the agenda on empowering our nations warriors:   Two panels of national thought leaders who will help set the stage for a future path of collaboration, cohesive action, and established accountability.


How about some accountability for that lie he sold the American people - then thad the audacity to find it hilarious and make a joke about it?  He thought it was funny.  Do you understand that?  Can you grasp what that means?  


At least LBJ's snide comment about the Tonkin Gulf situation wasn't done purposely at a huge dinner on national tv.

Yes, the majority did give McOldMan and Willard the atomic wedgies they deserved.

@DavidStrayer  I'll bet Obamawill  miss being able to fabricate evidence and trump up lies to allow him to go ahead invavade countries that have done nothing to us. Bet he`ll also miss being able to kill innocent civilians in other countries without having to answer for his crimes. I`m sure he`ll miss his being able to lie to America daily, bet he`ll also feel good about lying to the World about exactly his birth place. He needs to go back home and get a spear to throw around .....he`ll love that
