it looks more and more like George W. Bush was a good representative of America's financial elite
spoiled, cruel, and incapable of supporting themselves by any means other than scams that hurt average Americans and hurt businesses that actually produce useful products and services.

6. He was raised and spent most of his life in Texas
Aside from a couple years of prep school, 4 years at Yale, and a couple at Harvard. (and that short spell in Alabama.)

His patrons were the wealthy businessmen and entreprenuers in the energy business, the homebuilding and commercial real estate business, and the military industrial complex -- mainly in Southern California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida.

Companies like Exxon Mobil, Centex, Countrywide, General Dynamics. Entrepreneurs like the Kochs.
