Like him or dislike him, he was president and stood his ground. 
You have to at least respect that.

There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    "The change in culture has a lot to do with the eclipse of integrity and honesty and decency, and the normalization of corruption, deceit, and mendacity.  It's all about manipulating your political opponents to diminish them and show that they have nothing to say or contribute.  People no longer have dialogue. It's all monologue."  - - Cornell West

    Great VP, and Good President, more moderate than my taste in Presidents, but he was a great American. RIP

    He was a good dude.  And a boring president (that's high praise by me!)

    Will he be the best one term president?  I doubt it, at least until he gets a song like James K. Polk.  But he's up there.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    George W. broke down while he was talking. very sad ,but so touching to hear an honest emotion from a politician.
