tvoivozhd---Bush didn't have the mental capacity to start and run a 
successful business in Texas---his were utter failures bailed out by 
Daddy's political cronies---but he did learn how to milk local  
taxpayers for the Texas Rangers---that was entirely enough---money in 
the bank.  You can always rely on a corrupt politician to learn how to 
steal money from taxpayers---and Bush was corrupt as hell.
