Re: Old Quotes

Jim, I don’t disagree in any particular about that Bush video, but consider: 1999 may seem like a long time ago to a young man such as yourself, but it isn’t, really, in the life of a man who soon will be 70 years old.  People change their minds about things from time to time: My beliefs about taxes are not today exactly what they were when I was 25.
