Re: What will be the legacy of George W. Bush and his Administration?

How people will remember his legacy:

A plane was about to crash. There are 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.

The first passenger said:

"I am Ronaldo, the best football player in the world. Our football needs me. I can not die, I owe to my fans. "
He takes the first parachute and jumps.

The second passenger, Hillary Clinton, said:
"I am the wife of the former ex-US-president, a woman politically largest in the world. I am a senator in New York and potentially the next president of America. "
She takes the second parachute and jumps.

The third passenger, George W. Bush said:
"I am the president of the United States of America. I have an immense responsibility in international politics. I am the most skilled and intelligent president in all the history of my country. For all these reasons and for my country, I can not die. "
Then he takes a parachute and jump.

The fourth passenger, the Pope, says to the fifth passenger, a child of school:
"I am already old aged. I lived my life as a good man and a pastor of souls. So, I leave you the last parachute, you have a lifetime ahead. "

The child responds:
"No problem! There is also a parachute for you! The more skilled and intelligent president of America jumped with my school's backpack."
