I was inspired to do this post by one over at Wigderson Library & Pub. Anyway, James celebrates the birthday of President Jimmy Carter with a picture of a Time magazine cover, featuring Carter and Ayatollah Khomeini.

And, overall, I would agree that the Carter presidency was not an effective one. However, Jimmy Carter, the man, stands tall over the current resident of the White House, with his work for Habitat for Humanity and his other post-presidency pursuits.
So, in the spirit of that post, I decided to find out what George W. Bush's birthdate was ... I almost gagged ... it's the same as my ex-wife's ... July 6th. It figures.
Here are some pictures to remember George's birthday by.
