    Why? Is this whole forum not about hunting in Africa? This was meant as a condolences thread. Not a Trump bashing thread or a Bush bashing thread. I say again, if someone wants to bash Trump or bash this Bush, who I did not always agree with and voted against on his bid for re election,, then please start another thread. Its quite evident that he was a fine man, not a perfect one and in my view a mediocre president, but going back 20 years or more to dredge up old history or bash the current CIC, is not appropriate here.

    Goodbye Mr. President
    You sacrificed a second term to prevent the U.S. from going bankrupt,
    You found purpose in life as service to the U.S.
    You were a hero George H.W. Bush

    Why did you not speak up on @flatwater bill 's comments, if you are so non partisan?

    As a President, he had his ups and downs. I've had my ups and downs.

    He was my CIC while I served and he sent me off to war. I'll forgive him as I had a relatively easy assignment...

    His service through his lifetime to this country is amazing to me.

    May God bless him, I can't see it any other way.

    Guess I didn't see it as a negative (about Bush or Trump) comment;). "But tell me Two Dogs F***ing, why are you so interested?" :eek::eek::D And who the hell ever said I was non partisan?!?!o_O Boob.:(

    Rick, I'm pretty sure it's because I'm super rich, and married to a Rockette. :LOL: Wait....maybe it't because I didn't say anything negative about anyone. Or maybe he just likes me better than you. Hard to say ....could be a combo........anyway.....I say again: RIP Mr Pres 41.: You were the last fine example of a fierce political opponent who was still a friend and an American first and last, and I respect that more than anything else........................FWB

    George seniors vision saw a peaceful prosperous world as being good for the US. He believed in the traditional the American ideal of holding the higher moral ground and helping the underdog. He carried himself with dignity and he was not a blatant liar.

    If you haven't read 41 it is an excellent book. Also, the book "In the Presidents Secret Service" has some good stories (and some not so flattering ones about other Presidents). From reading, and speaking with people who have spent time with him, he seems like a very genuine man. I have seen GHWB at countless sporting events in Houston and you could tell he loved every minute of it.
