Having exhausted that topic (Geo. Bush it turns out is courageous because he ran like a bunny all over the country on 9/11 because the SS told him to do so; or something like that), I asked Dad to name one Geo. Bush policy that had not been a complete failure. Dad's response: "He lowered my taxes."
What I should have said (version 1): That doesn't count, it just made everything else worse.
What I should have said (version 2): That's right and he raised the taxes of Young William and Young Alexander.
In my defense it only took me about 3 minutes to think up version 1, but it did take a couple of days for version 2 to occur to me. So, Dad, if you're reading this, that's what I should have said.
