      VERY NICE PICTURES TAKEN. EVERY PRESIDENT GETS A BEAUTIFUL LIBRARY FORMER PRESIDENT BUSH MADE SOME HUMANTARIAN GOOD DEEDS BY SUPPORTING PREVENTION OF THE SPREAD OF AIDS IN AFRICA AND THERE MIGHT OF BEEN A FEW OTHER GOOD DEEDS ALONG THE WAY. BUT THIS IS WHAT A LOT OF AMERICANS BELIEVE ABOUT THE BUSH AND CHANEY ADMINSTRATION DURING THEIR TENURE: BUT FORMER GEORGE BUSH PLACE AMERICA IN A VOLITA STATE POLITICAL AND DEBT WISE. PRESIDENT BUSH DID NOT SECURE OUR BORDERS OF AMERICA, HE CONSIDERED LETTING OTHER COUNTRIES DO SO SECURE OUR PORTS ABD BORDERS, NO OTHER COUNTRY WOULD DO THAT. WHAT WAS HE AND HOMELAND HE WAS GOV. OF TEAXAS AND COULD NOT EVEN SECURE TEXAS BORDER LET ALONE AMERICA BORDERS. SO IMMIGRANTS FLOOD ILLEAGLY IN TO TEXAS AND THE OTHER STATES. THEN HE DID NOT DEPORT ALL THE CRIMINAL BACK TO THEIR COUNTRIES DUE TO POOR FEDERAL HOMELAND SECURITIES AND STATE POLICIES WHICH WERE NOT ALWAYS CARRIES OUT. THEN HIS FRIEND GOV RICK PERRY SERVING 3 TERMS AS GOV OF TEXAS DID NOT SECURE TEXAS BORDERS AND TRIED THE BLAME THE CURRENT US PRESIDENT FOR UNSECURED BOARDERS......GO FIGURE!!! TOO MANY TUNNELS FOR DRUG SMUGGLING AND ILLEAGAL PERSON DRUG FROM MEXICO INTO TEXAS..... THE FEMA DEBACLE FOR KATRINA VICTIMS WAS SEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD. THEY WERE CALL ALIENS AND TREATED LIKE PEPLE OF THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES. THE STATE OF AFFAIRS DURNING THE BUSH & CHANEY ADMINSTRATION LEFT AMERICA IN SHAMBLES. THE ELUMINATING COST OF TWO WARS AT THE SAME TIME, BUT YET THE ADMINSTATION STILL CUT PROGRAM NEEDED FOR ITS PEOPLE IN IN AMERICA AND CHANEY INVESTMENT OF BODY BAGS FOR PROFIT FROM DEAD AMERICAN SOLDIERS THEY LIED ABOUT NO RECESSION IN AMERICA AMERICA;S HOUSING MARKET DEBACLE WAS DUE TO KARL ROVE ... HE REALLY SCREW AMERICANS ROYALY NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND WAS A NICE THOUGHT WITH NO PUSH OR REALNESS BEHIND IT .....LOST OF TEACHERS, SCHOOLS CLOSING, HEAD START IN JEOPARDY, DROP OUT RATES SORING. ALLOWING COLLEGS TO JACKUP THE COST OF TUTIONS, LESS GRANT MONIES FOR STUDENT LOANS. USA IN DEBT TO AT LEAST 9 COUNTRIES WE BORROW MONEY FROM AND STILL OWE, FORMER PRESIDENT CLINTON HAD AMERICA IN THE BLACK AS FAR AS AMERICA DEBIT BEFORE HE LEFT OFFICE PRESIDENT BUSH & VP CHENEY KNEW IN ADABOUT FANNIE MAY & BANKING ISSUES & BAILOUT NEEDS. HALIBURT FRAUD DUE TO CHANEY MIS USE AND CONTRACT APPORIATIONS FOR WARS AND REBUILDING.
