Quote of the Day 4/ 10: Second Chances

"I quit drinking -- and it wasn't because of a government program. It required a little more powerful force than a government program in my case"

- President George W. Bush, after signing the "Second Chance Act" -- a government program to aide recovered substance abusers -- into law.

The law is a prisoner re-entry program that helps convicted felons transition back into society and provides additional federal funding to reduce prison populations by creating job training programs, along with substance abuse and family stability support.

This is the third time he has brought up his history with drinking publicly in recent months.
