July 18, 2012: Texas "I have no desire for fame and power anymore."
"Within his lifetime Cincinnatus became a legend to the Romans. Twice granted supreme power, he held onto it for not a day longer than absolutely necessary."
"His immediate resignation of his absolute authority with the end of the crisis has often been cited as an example of outstanding leadership, service to the greater good, civic virtue, lack of personal ambition and modesty."
"I have no desire for fame and power anymore."
Says someone being interviewed 4 years after he left office. Right.
I said it then and I'll say it now, "W" can leave his boots under my bed any time.
Boy, I miss him. I know he lives here in TX, but still...
Let him enjoy his retirement in peace.
Mixed emotions. I love the man. He is the real deal. A person of honesty and modesty.
That said, I would wish that he believed enough in the cause of conservative values to join in the fight. We need all hands on deck.
