Curious, George.

This is old news, but I just heard it, so forgive me. Here are the answers given by recent presidents, when asked to name the "best moments" of their time as LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.

Jimmy Carter: "I think the best time was probably dealing with the Middle East issue at Camp David," he said, "and even better I think was the peace treaty that came along six months later. I made a very difficult decision over the almost unanimous opposition of my cabinet and my staff to take the initiative and to go to Egypt and to go to Israel to try to get Begin and Sadat to agree on a peace treaty. And when they did sign-both of them signed the agreement-I guess that was probably my best moment."

Bill Clinton said: "So many things have happened here at home that have been important to me; passing economic plan, passing the Brady Bill and assault weapons ban, so many things have happened internationally, the role that I was fortunate to be able to play in the peace process in the Middle East and in Northern Ireland, but this could have the biggest long-term positive consequences if we do it right." He then went on to mention things like, you know, peace-keeping missions, promoting freedom, democracy and human rights around the world.
How did our current esteemed leader George W. Bush answer the same question? He said that his “best moment” was catching a big fish in the lake on his Texas ranch. "You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told the German weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked to name the high point of his presidency. "I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5-pound perch in my lake.
Later reports revealed that the largest perch ever caught was 4.3 pounds, and that Bush probably was talking about a large mouth bass.
Good-bye George. I'm going to miss you, you big meat-head.

Hey, all fishermen lie about their catches. ( did you really take the time to verify the biggest perch size for this blog?)
