11. No, those become gov't property, not personal property.
I remember seeing a display of all the stuff that had been given to Clinton. It included a lot of items with no appreciable cash value, and many that had been handmade. But it was not considered within the rules for him to keep them, so they all sat in a gov't warehouse.

I have no doubt whatever that Bu**sh** will keep just about anything he wants, and see nothing wrong with it. Nor will anyone in his maladministration bother to keep track.

5. When asked what was his greatest moment in his residency...
his response was the large perch he caught in his lake at his pig farm.

Didn't you know that Shrub fishing keeps them from coming over here? Why do you hate America? :eyes:

3. I think he needs a one way ticket to Paraguay
Actually I would prefer he get a new suit (orange one piece) but I would settle for the plane ticket if he would leave today.
