George H.W. Bush dies at 94 years of age

George H.W. Bush dies at 94 years of age

Postby oneh2obabe » Nov 30th, 2018, 10:39 pm

George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States and the father of the 43rd, was a steadfast force on the international stage for decades, from his stint as an envoy to Beijing to his eight years as vice president and his one term as commander in chief from 1989 to 1993.

The last veteran of World War II to serve as president, he was a consummate public servant and a statesman who helped guide the nation and the world out of a four-decade Cold War that had carried the threat of nuclear annihilation.

His death, at 94 on Nov. 30, also marked the passing of an era.

I was remarking the other day about how there are 6 presidents alive at the same time. Now there are only 5.

And how did Clinton repay this classy letter?
We all know.

We also know G.H.W. Bush was part of a war monger circle keeping the American military industrial complex humming.

They all do.

The video is great, especially the emphasis on his marriage.

I had no idea, 72 years!

Barbara Bush’s father was also president, of McCall magazine.
Justin Trudeau? NO! Trust in Judo!

He served 8 years under Reagan as vice president & 4 years as president, love or hate him doesn't matter to me right now.
My condolences to his family and friends on their loss, rest in peace George.

I had no idea he was in WW2, and rescued from being shot down.

All evidence points to the snollygoster scown Justin Trudeau being unfit to run this country. The LIEberal mantra: If you can no longer motivate with hope, you turn to hate. And it sure is a lot easier to hate, as the LIEberal scowns prove over and over.
