    I guess they're all looking to jump ship.

    Heh heh... not that I like horses either. Dumb and flighty beasts.

    Some of my best friends are horses. You just have to know how to talk to them.

    Forget knowing how to talk to them, just bring an apple with you. :)

    You could probably say the same thing about George W. Bush.

    Maybe someone just needs walk up to him and softly tell him that "sometimes what seems like surrender isn't surrender at all. It's about what's going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater."

    Should that be said in a hoarse whisper?

    Sometimes hanging by the neck is the only way.

    I think it's quite normal for some people to be scared of things that are smarter than them :D

    No wonder some of you are scared of President Bush.

    C'mon. The guy is an utter failure... worst president in many many decades. Thick as two planks with a reprehensible record.

    You'd be hard put to it to find two planks with such a reprehensible record.

    For the record, of all the farmers and ranchers I know, none of them use horses. ATVs are a much more popular (and cheaper) means of transport. The only people I know that ride horses are people that live in the 'burbs and have it as a hobby...

    C'mon. If it wasn't the Iraq war, he'd be in the top half of presidents. Not in the top 25%, but definitely not riding the list down with Grant and Carter.

    A President who makes a lot of people look back at Nixon fondly.

    If Bush is cleverer than we think, then he really is the most reprehensible and evil piece of work imaginable. It's less scary to believe he's just a dumb muppet. "Best presidents" doesn't come into it – neither of these options are a positive thing.

    Horses are creepy, but I don't mind them, unlike Bush.

    On what grounds? Certainly not his economic record, his foreign policy successes, his domestic competence or his grasp of the big picture (or any picture at all). What else is there? :confused:

    Top half? On what basis? Tell me how well things are going over there compared to just before he came into office. What has actually improved that he can take credit for? Name any achievement of any credible or substantive value for the nation.

    He's kept the oval office entirely free of oral sex.

    From what I hear, it's strictly hand jobs with Bush.

    My commute into work yesterday was interrupted by a horse standing in the road and preventing my bus from passing, so I'm not exactly a fan of them at the moment either. I'm with the President on this issue.

    Not surprising there's only five cattle on the ranch when the human inhabitant generates sufficient ******** to fertilise most of Texas.

    I like horses though, even the ones at football matches :)
