The elder Bush served as the U.S. president from 1989 to 1993. In recent years, Bush used a motorized scooter or wheelchair for mobility. He also battled Parkinson’s disease and was hospitalized in the past year for a blood infection, low blood pressure and fatigue. His cause of death was not immediately announced.

Growing up and literally until the last decade, I didn’t like him, but upon closer inspection while not a saint he seems to have been a good person from a number of accounts and individuals.

RIP and my condolences to his family.

He was there when Kennedy got shot.

So were Cheney and Rumsfeld.

Texas.

It’s where the dark deep insurrection began.

He was party to it.

I can’t say he was a good man, and nor can I say he was a good President.

He wasn’t inept like his son, at least.

But then, that’s why Cheney and Rumsfeld were there running things all purloined Machiavellian-style.

regardless of his policies, he was still a patriot and (assumingly) may have been a decent person. R.I.P.

No.

Kennedy was a great man.

Bush made sure we didn’t get to keep him around and have nice things.


#6

you hear that on info wars?

Kennedy was indeed a great man, and most definitely a better president than anyone who succeeded him so far.


#8

Was he really? Or did he not have a chance to fuck up because he died so early in his term?

Wow. Someone else who understands.

Never read this book but the title says it all.
