Bryan Schnell, on the grounds of the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas June 13, 2004. It was the second of two tandem jumps Bush made on Sunday to celebrate his 80th birthday

Fantastic man, doing this on his 80th birtday,
I imagine Barbara was sitting worrying a little,
although she wont admit it. She will just continue to give him heck for doing such a thing,
she is such a funny lady.

Bless him on his 80th, a good man.

A little tinny bit off his rocker, maybe to do
this, but he wants to get his pin, or wings or
something like that and he will. The Bush family
perseveres until the goal is met.

What a dumb stunt for an ex-president no less.

And just what is he trying to prove ? That he can be bottom man on a tandem parachute jump ?

Yes we know its his birthday but why would he pick the week after Reagan's funeral to make a national spectacle out of it.

Whatever happened to dignity and humility ?

Humilty left during the first Clinton term.

Dignity departed it during the second.
