Do they miss Yellow Fever?

Sometimes the cure can render us forgetful of the disease, but maybe in this case Bush will go down as the most notoriously bad president of all time.

Lord Byron famously said of his mother ‘How can I call her mother when she is not my friend?’.

How can you call Bush a good president when he is not even a friend to the American public?

He will NOT be missed at all!
