    What a guy. Sends them off to get mangled so his rich friends can get richer, then if the Vets can survive long enough to jump throu all the hoops they need to to get the coverage they deserve, they can maybe go for a pr bs ride with one of those rich guys at one of his 1,500 acre ranches.
    The only thing about him I respect is that he is smart enough to remain, for the most part, silent and in the shadows, just too bad that happens now, after he's sold out our people, economy, military, freedoms, and tarnished America's image worldwide.
    At least the rest of the world sees him and others as they are, and he can't travel to too many counties abroad without fear of being arrested. Not me, I can go anywhere my country tells me I can, just gotta love freedom, lol.

    Regardless of anything else - all the negatives you can think of - based on my experience, I can tell you that it means a lot to these guys. Let's try to keep it about them.

    Would hope there's no denying that.
    But even to that, why should any vet feel like they're getting a hand out instead of the county they sacrificed for tripping at their feet for whatever they need to recoup. Do we learn from our mistakes? Does it always have to be about money? Or is it just ok if we pretend it's not? Guess for one mtb ride it's ok, but for Bush, really?. Now if they got Cheney or any other fat greedy out of shape higher up from over at halliburton to do it, that'd be admirable, and even more sadistic.

    I'm a vet. I have zero respect for Shrub. I was serving while he was deserting.

    The one positive about this article is that it's excellent Journalism, as good as anything Theodore White ever wrote.

    As far as Big Politics/Big Money goes, it's built into the system. Even Eisenhower had Sherman Adams.

    Anybody here wouldn't love to make that ride?

    So, no opinions allowed? I think it is great that these vets get to ride, and that it means a lot to them. I still agree with what Meat says... wait, there he goes! Whistling a happy tune!!! Wait up! Nothing to see here...

    Re: Former president Bush has 41 miles of MTB trails

    Is there a review for these trails on MTBR? I'm curious if they are rocky and technical or smooth and flowy.

    Also, I've got a shiny nickel for the first rider who starts an authentic, unauthorized 'GWB Ranch' Strava segment.

    Best mountain biking president ever. I am pretty sure this is a mountain biking sight right? So, I give him a big thumbs up.

    I wonder if he's letting them share in his immense wealth out of a sense of shame and guilt, I hope so and I hope that Tony Blair is watching.

    I think I saw if published that he often rode 1-2 hours a day when he was in DC- primarily at Camp David. Supposedly, he is actually a good rider.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    I hope that I'm still riding dirt at 66 y.o. That is all.

    Lance has a ranch with singletrack, too.
    He is still a douchebag.
    Those two should get together and start the Texan-has-been-loser-fvchup club.

    Karl rove gets an honorary membership!

    See, here's the problem.
    Most of those vets would still HAVE their damn limbs if George hadn't of accidentally wandered into a false war in the wrong country.
    Then those vets would jest be mountain bikers, like us.
    Not damaged ones.
    Over and out, no more from me.
    But I think it needs to be pointed out.
    A few miles of singletrack doesn't make up for thousands of US servicemen and women....dead.

    Ha!!

    Politics aside, I'm sure those vets were honored to have had the opportunity to take that ride. I know I would have been. I'm sure nobody forced them to ride with the former President just as nobody forced them to serve in the first place. Remember, it's an all-volunteer force.
