5,000th Daily Point of Light Award? Almost as meaningful as a Byerly's coupon.

Ironically, the dems and the media made fun of this phrase from the moment it was uttered. Now that he's harmless, we can thank GHWB, decades later. Classic.

When the message board comments come out there always has to be a critic. I for one applaud George H.W. Bush and President Obama. Bush was a WWII hero and a former great President. How awesome it would be if leaders could only come together as a bipartisan group. Respect and listen to each other's differences, but please come to a COMPROMISE!! Of course compromise seems like a dirty word in Washington today, but I hope lawmakers will return to decency and respect instead of loud mouth shouting.

Qbiker, ironically the last President to compromise was GHWBush when he agreed to raise taxes. Clinton used Bush's phrase, "Read my lips,no new taxes" to narrowly defeat Bush. Even though the tax increase paved the way to grow the economy, Presidents and both parties now know it will cost them in elections. No Compromise!

So freedubay, your point is the last compromise helped the country, so we should no longer do it? And candidates and parties know that tax increases cost them elections, so the only candidate that spoke of raising taxes on anybody wins the last 2 elections? Spoken like a brilliant conservative.
