What's scary is....this coverage of the services is being heard by millions who are too young to know GHWB.

So they are all hearing this maudlin gushing endless praise of this mediocre president...but they will come away thinking some stellar person has passed.
Sure to the Bush family he was, but not to everyone else.

So as this incomplete (certainly far from accurate) portrayal because fact, a new generation moves forward with half the story so future A.net members can argue about GHWB being great or not.

No question our current state of being stuck with the miserable TTrump... is adding to elevating the veneer of the late president.

Sometimes mediocrity is what a country needs. He did many things that were good in the world, and he did some things that were bad for the world.

But perhaps the best presidents are the ones who don't receive much in the way of lime light, and after they have served, move on with their lives.

There are plenty of resources available to anyone who wants to know every detail of our 41st president. That's on them to research and make their own conclusion. The death of a former president isn't about criticizing their policies. It's a time of mourning. Look at how many in the UK acted after Margaret Thatcher died. It was disgusting. You don't see that type of behavior on a large scale in the US. I disagree with plenty of politicians but I'm not going to dance on their grave when they die.

Solidly middle of the pack President who lived to a ripe old age with the love of his life and a large family. He won. Let's all move on.


He(and St. Ronnie) won the battle but they lost the war. Hope he's enjoying hell(not that I believe in that kind of thing).
