Thanks to a previous articulate post by PD contributor Cordeiro, I am reminded of the many reasons I have continued to admire and appreciate the Presidency of George W. Bush.

George W. Bush is a class-act who has never allowed his critics to define him or diminish his spirit. The reason so many continue to suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome is because he has withstood their onslaught with dignity and a smile, never flinching to their vulgarities, fingers, bumper stickers, mockery or shoes. For those of us who are able to recognize and appreciate W’s efforts we, too, have taken the blows with him.

Here are just a few of my favorite “W” moments.
