HW’s highlights as our 41st President include Operation Desert Storm, in which a UN coalition drove out invading Iraq from Kuwait, and an example of how international conflict should be handled in today’s world.

Another highlight was having the distinction of being the President during the fall of the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc, effectively ending the Cold War. However most of the credit in having a role in that goes towards his predecessor, Ronald Reagan, and Mikhail Gorbachev.

HW was perhaps an example of someone being President at the wrong time. He had to live up to the legacy and charisma of his predecessor, which he never did of course, as no one could. And while, by in large, he continued Reagan’s economic policies, took the blame when the economy suffered a debilitating recession towards the end of his presidency, since only surpassed by the Great Recession. As a result, he was the last President not to be re-elected.

Regardless of the politics, he was a leader, statesman, a war hero... many respectful things can deservedly be said about him as both a man and a president.

I hope they don't let Cadet Bone Spurs speak as the memorial service.

A recession may not be needed this time to see him voted out. It isn’t all about the economy anymore like it used to be, as evidenced in the 2016 election.

She could have had it Leon. Americans could have broken the trend and stayed blue after 8 years of blue.

If only one of the other GOP candidates won instead of ernge-man.

President George H.W. Bush led a long, successful and beautiful life. Whenever I was with him I saw his absolute joy for life and true pride in his family. His accomplishments were great from beginning to end. He was a truly wonderful man and will be missed by all!

Tonight I watched a few shows (documentaries) on 41.

Some of it I knew.

Some I had known, but ha forgotten.

Much of it I never knew.

I now more impressed with him (and much less impressed by Cadet Bone Spurs).
