    Whatever you might think of the Bush dynasty’s legacy, no one can ever accuse the family of not showing class and decency. And their sterling example of this, while saying goodbye to their beloved patriarch, has also served as an important reminder of just how awful the McCain family is.

    On November 30, 2018, George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, died of vascular Parkinsonism, a disease with many of the same risk factors as those for strokes and a heart attack. However, he did not have the two major risk factors for heart attacks: He was not overweight and he exercised regularly (and vigorously, at least in his younger days). -snip- details -snip_ He Did Everything Right Readers of my biographical articles on the deaths of notable people often comment on how frequently I criticize my subjects for their self-destructive lifestyle choices -- lack of exercise, a...

    President Trump exchanged greetings with his predecessor Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama after arriving at George H.W. Bush ’s funeral Wednesday, but there was a noticeable lack of warmth between the commander-in-chief and the woman he defeated to win the White House. Bush’s funeral brought together all of the living former presidents – Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter – as well as Trump and first lady Melania Trump. The pair was seated in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral next to the Obamas. Trump shook hands with Obama and former first...

    Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their place in the front row at President George H. W. Bush's funeral at National Cathedral yesterday morning, right next to the Obamas. It was a bit awkward considering the past war of words between the two couples. Trump has accused Obama of authoring some of the worst deals the U.S. has ever signed and is currently upending his predecessor's legacy, while Obama has sounded off on Trump's policies. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama wrote some unflattering things about 45 in her new book, including how she'll never forgive him for his role in...
  • Corrosive Hatred of the Washington Post Tries to Steal Bush Eulogy

    There is no light coming from the Washington Post, but only the kind of darkness that corrosive hatred brings The Washington Post headline on the Bush funeral shouts volumes: ‘Bush funeral: Trump sits with fellow presidents but still stands alone’. WaPo wants a grieving world to believe that “from the moment he crossed the transept of the soaring Washington National Cathedral, tore off his overcoat and took his seat in the front pew, President Trump was an outsider.” Wrong: Donald Trump “was an outsider” from the day he won the 2016 presidential election, something the mainstream and social media saw...

    Alan Simpson will speak today at George H. Bush’s tribute. His speech will be likely heart felt and perhaps sometimes light-hearted. Here are some of his funnier lines from the past._____________ “I watch Republicans, they give each other the saliva test of purity, and then they lose and they bitch for four years.” — — On the need for a socially tolerant, big tent Republican Party, in a Feb. 2012 interview with CBS’s Bob Schieffer. “[Social Security is] a milk cow with 310 million tits.” — in an August 2010 email, which he later apologized for. “If this had happened...

    President Trump and first lady Melania Trump met privately Tuesday evening with former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush on the eve of funeral services for former President George H.W. Bush. The president and first lady traveled via motorcade across the street from the White House to the Blair House, which is used to accommodate guests of honor. They appeared to warmly exchange pleasantries with George W. and Laura Bush before the four entered the building without taking questions. Melania Trump earlier in the day hosted a tour of the White House Christmas decorations for Laura...

    When President Donald Trump didn’t attend Barbara Bush’s funeral earlier this year, it stoked chatter about a rivalry between the two powerful families who have a history of sniping at each other. The former first lady criticized Trump during the 2016 campaign for saying “terrible things” about women and the military, and was long displeased with Trump’s insults toward her husband and sons. But many of the family’s confidants said Saturday former President George H.W. Bush wished to put that all aside when it came to Trump attending his funeral. “If anybody at anytime knew anything about the 41st president...

    Musician Kanye West told reporters at the White House on Thursday that a "welfare mentality" led him to accuse former President George W. Bush of racism after Hurricane Katrina. "I was very emotional, and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality. Of a welfare mentality," West said, sitting across from President Trump in the Oval Office. West, wearing a Trump campaign hat, said the concept of racism was used by Democrats to control voters.

    (Newser) – Michelle Obama and George W. Bush have long had a special relationship, and at John McCain's funeral, a video of the former president handing the former first lady a cough drop as they sat next to one another in the crowd went viral. Obama, appearing on TODAY Thursday, explained. "It was a simple gesture," she said. As Bush got out a cough drop for his wife, Laura, "I looked over and I said, 'Hand me a cough drop,'" and he did. "President Bush and I, we are forever seatmates because of protocol. That's how we sit at all...

    President Donald Trump said former President George W. Bush’s decision to go to war in the Middle East was the biggest mistake in American history, in an interview published on Wednesday. “The worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country — going into the Middle East by President Bush,” Trump said in an interview with The Hill.TV. “Obama may have gotten ‘em out wrong, but going in is to me the biggest single mistake made in the history of our country.” Trump said that the American Civil War was “different” and that he could understand the motivations...

    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

    Today marks the 17th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks that left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 others injured in the United States. The horrific day began when hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93-99 of the World Trade Center’s North Tower at 8.46am. Minutes later at 9.03am, United Airlines Flight 175 was crashed by hijackers into floors 75-85 of WTC’s South Tower. Everyone aboard both planes were instantly killed along with those on the affected floors inside both towers. Within less than an hour of the two attacks on the Twin Towers, a...

    In April 2005, a Republican-led Department of Justice did something quite unusual. After catching a Democratic operative stealing and destroying highly relevant classified documents, the DoJ punished him as though he had stolen the Snickers bars from the office vending machine. On October 28, 2005, another curious event took place in those same halls of justice: an allegedly Republican special prosecutor indicted a White House advisor of his own party for a series of process crimes unrelated to the original intent of his investigation. As will become clear, this double injustice not only foreshadowed future injustices, but it also served...

    Vladimir Putin, wannabe cowboy and newly minted close buddy of President Bush, eagerly wanted to ride a horse in Texas, so he may have been disappointed to learn that Bush zips around his ranch in a Ford pickup. That's what was awaiting the Putins as they landed at the Bush ranch outside Waco in midafternoon. The Bushes, in ranch gear and carrying umbrellas to shield their guests from the rain, met the casually attired Putins when they arrived by helicopter for an overnight and barbecue at the Bush home. "The president brought the rain, for which we're always grateful in...
