Former President George H.W. Bush, who spent a lifetime in public service and as the nation's leader scored a decisive victory over Saddam Hussein but battled a faltering economy, died Friday at age 94. Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush. He is survived by five children, including former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. A sixth child died in early childhood. The late former president also is survived by 17 grandchildren.

Rot in hell.

He saw a NWO, didn’t he?

Now I hope he sees fire.

I NEVER EVER hope a Traitor is RIP.

Kids learn from pop. And his son, GW, was a NWO piece of garbage too.

And they were ALL in bed with the Sauds so often I’m surprised they didn’t get pregnant by them.

Rest in Peace WW2 veteran who saved the whole World...

...his later decisions to invade Iraq numerous times cost a lot of people their lives, and his family wrecked the Republican Party of the Union, straighten it out with God now.

Bush Senior was surely a genuine war hero,unlike either of his opponents.And although he was far from being the best President of the modern era he was at least as far from being the worst.At least since LBJ the Rat Party hasn’t nominated anyone who was worthy to carry his gym shoes.

Not surprisingly, all of the mediots continue to claim that he was defeated by Clinton in the 1992 presidential election, when in fact, he was defeated by a stunningly arrogant and ruinous H. Ross Perot: (Popular Vote)

Clinton 44,909,889

Bush 39,104,545

Perot 19,742267

My Dad, also 94, a highly-decorated WWII Vet (Platoon SGT) - Dad-Day, all thru Europe, Battle of the Bulge whgere he was shot by a nazi sniper while rescuing 2 soldiers in his platoon from machine gun ambush, also passed on Oct 13. The York Color Guard did a 21-gun salute, flag-folding ceremony, and 4 A-10 Thunderbolt “Warthog” did a 1,500ft flyover. I gave a 10min eulogy that brought everyone to tears. He was the best man I ever knew. He was my hero and I miss him terribly.

He reached his hand out to the Democrats, they tore his arm off, and clubbed him over the head with it.

War hero, republican POTUS who turned against the best interests of the country and supported obama and Hillary. His end was ignoble

Greatly admired George W.W. Bush’s war record. He eventually became President only because Ronald Reagan had difficulty selecting a Vice President running mate in 1980. (Remember the Ford/Kissinger fiasco and the “sharing of power”) Ultimately the final history of Bush is yet to be written. Historians will have to closely analyze his political and personal business dealings with the Saudis and other Arabs. There is no doubt that the Bush family became incredibly and quietly wealthy in the oil business after 1990. The Saudi relationship affected G.W. Bush as well and mitigated the US response to 9/11 and the subsequent military involvement in the Mideast. It made the Obama Presidency possible. IMHO history will not be kind to either George Bush.

When I heard the news of President Bush's passing I had to ask myself whether he was a great American and yes, I think he was. No doubt about it...

RIP.

2 shall be taken and 3 shall be shaken. 2 shall go to prison and 1 shall barely escape from going there. When the first one dies the judgment on the Deep State shall begin.
