Georege W. Bush was a bad tenant

As a landlord, I found it interesting to read in the NY Times today, that when George W. Bush vacated a rented bungalow in Montgomery, AL in 1972, he left piles of trash behind and a broken light fixture. He never responded to a letter demanding payment for the damages.
I've learned as a landlord, that how a person treats other person's property is a good indication of their character. Looks like what he did to that house, he's doing to the country.
Landlords unite. Strike a blow against bad tenants everywhere. Vote against Bush.

Story must be from Dan Rather, because using the term 'bungalow' to describe a rental unit in Montgomery, Ala. indicates a lack of veracity.

That was more than 30 years ago. Can’t keep throwing that up in a man’s face. The statute of limitations is in effect, as far as I’m concerned; same thing for his drunk driving and drug use…

jdc has a good point, but it seems that he hasnt gotten far since then. Kerry needs to tell people exactly what he wants to do, because nobody knows.

Tune into David Letterman tonight.
As to the type of tenant Bush is I sure hope that we aren't going to spend tax dollars cleaning up the bathtubs and engine blocks in the front yard when Bush leaves the White House.

Clintons trashed the White House

Remember when Bill & Hillary had to return $50K worth of stuff they stole from the White House?

RE: George W. Bush was a bad tenant

Lest we forget......

"The final, official report from the Government Accounting Office was released on June 11, 2002. The 220 page document says there was damage, although not as much as some of the early reports had suggested. The GAO says the damage included 62 missing computer keyboards, 26 cell phones, two cameras, ten antique doorknobs and several presidential medallions and office signs. The damage estimate was about $20,000.

This has been a subject of contention since President Bush took office. There were reports of vandalism, graffiti, and obscene messages in White House offices by outgoing Clinton staffers. Bush downplayed the reports saying he wanted to move on with the presidency. Clinton supporters, however, charged that the story was not true and that the Bush forces had made up the story to make Bush's staff look better than Clinton's. Former President Clinton offered to pay for any damage and his supporters called for an investigation.

May 18, 2001 the General Accounting Office issued a three-page letter that said that it was unable confirm the damage largely to a lack of records from the White House. The letter also said that the condition of the White House offices was "...consistent with what we would expect to encounter when tenants vacate office space after an extended occupancy."

In response, White House press secretary Ari Fleischer outlined the details of the damage, most of which was in the Eisenhower Execitive Office Building adjacent to the White House. On June 3, 2001 The Washington Post quoted Fleischer as saying that the damage included the removal of the letter "W" from 100 computer keyboards, five missing brass nameplates with the presidential seal on them, 75 telephones with cover plates missing or apparently intentionally plugged into the wrong wall outlets, six fax machines relocated in the same way, ten cut phone lines, two historic door knobs missing, overturned desks and furniture in about 20 percent of the offices, obscene graffiti in six offices, and eight 14-foot loads of usable office supplies recovered from the trash. According to Fleischer, there was one incident in the White House itself, a photocopy machine that had copies of naked people hidden in the paper tray so they would come out from time to time with other copies."

I like the nekkid pictures randomly among blank paper in the photocopier. That is smart and funny.

Er, I mean I am deeply offended.
