Bush is a leader To the editor: George W. Bush is by far the most honest, ethical and straight-talking leader we have had since Ronald Reagan. Since the Arab extremists prefer Kerry, that should tell all of us that Bush is the man to protect our country and our freedom. Heaven forbid that John Kerry would ever be at the helm of our nation! Kerry, his actions after Vietnam and his senate record reveal him to be unworthy to lead the United States! If anyone has any intelligence at all, they would vote for our President, George W. Bush, to continue to lead our great nation in a time of war. We are at war with terrorists, and W has the backbone and the fortitude to defeat them.

Bartlett signed up last month to be the former vice president's Maryland campaign chairman. "What Dan Quayle stands for is what I stand for," Bartlett said. Bartlett said Quayle sold him in 1992 with his famous "Murphy Brown" speech, in which he criticized Hollywood's portrayal of family values. "Now, even the media's admitted maybe Dan Quayle was right," he said.

The Air Force flies the president on Air Force One, Marines fly his helicopter, the Army drives his vehicles, but when he’s hungry, he turns to the Navy. Tal Sims of Kearneysville was a Navy chief chef and member of the White House Mess from 1999 to 2003, the year he retired as a chief petty officer after a 20-year career. He cooked for President Bill Clinton during his last year of office and for George W. Bush during his first three years in office.

Bush, the Republican governor from Texas, and Gore, the Democratic vice president, ended the race in a virtual tie.

Obama must quit blaming Bush for problems To the editor: I am not a fan of the policies of President Obama nor am I a fan of the direction in which he is taking the country. There are several facts to back up my opinions on his performance - largest federal budget ever, largest deficit ever, most worldwide apology tours ever, fastest dive in popularity ever, etc. But I guess what has bothered me the most is the number of times Obama has blamed George W. Bush for his problems.

With increasing frequency, articles are being published which compare the performance of George W. Bush with that of earlier presidents. But there is a very real difference in the present ranking system and what was used on previous presidential studies. Earlier studies of presidential performance used categories which had been accepted for many years: excellent, above average, average, below average and failure. At least two of the recent articles rank Bush only in relationship to presidents who have, by common agreement of recognized historians, been judged to have been poor presidents.
