The tributes to former president George H.W. Bush poured in this weekend, each in their own way exposing the pitfalls ahead this week for the Oval Offices current resident.
The 41st president was remembered by Barack Obama, the 44th, as a humble servant. Honorable, gracious and decent were the words Bill Clinton used in praise of his immediate predecessor. House Speaker Paul D. Ryans encomium described Bush as great in his character, leading with decency and integrity.

And whom did WaPo endorse in 1992?
WaPo has to control the narrative... once again interpreting others thoughts..
Bush was a pushover. That’s what a Republican president is supposed to be.
The media is disappointed in Trump because Trump believes he’s supposed to be in charge, not the Democrats.
Your comments are spot on.
WaPo is the yardstick for communist propaganda.
They were vicious while he was president but he is now their guy. The despicable media and their rat accomplices continue to fool the uneducated and the mentally ill in their herd. Bush was a globalist and an about face to Reagan, this they were happy about
Is this the same guy the media mocked as being out of touch with the average American and blamed for almost destroying an industry when he said he hated broccoli? They were pretty nasty to him while he was in office.
The blatant hypocrisy of the MSM is on full display and it will never change.
To Democrat Socialists, “reaching across the aisle” means total, unilateral Republican capitulation.
Your opinion is well written, and the truth of the rise of Trump is in your words. There is no Trump without the Left, and especially the medias, never ending attack on the descent conservatives. The problem is that the left doesnt get what they have caused or created, they blame old white people and ignorant racists. Trump reminds me of Grant. Trump and Grant were eventually chosen out of the need for survival in a brutal war.
We see what the corrupt Democrats are like when we look at CA,where they harvested the illegal alien vote to defeat all Republicans. They are no better than the Communist thugs who run Venezuela.
Dead Republicans are saints. Of course.
Its impossible to measure up to a dead man. What a slam at Trump.
The man they loved to hate
A yardstick I’d love to smack Barry Obonzo with.
When some one charged Gen. Grant, in the Presidents hearing, with drinking too much liquor, Mr. Lincoln, recalling Gen. Grants successes, said that if he could find out what brand of whisky Grant drank, he would send a barrel of it to all the other commanders.
This is why I wanted to send Stormy Daniels gift certificates to Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, but nobody would listen.
Bush was lashed unmercifully by the press, the Democrats, Ross Perot, and by conservatives in his party. He failed to continue the Reagan revolution, and his tenure, marked by the end of the Cold War, was by all accounts a failure.
As Bush Milquetoast I he is celebrated today. Instead of the Deep State bushwah He should be given the treatment that was good enough for Lincoln. A quick train ride to Maine and a decent burial.
“And whom did WaPo endorse in 1992?”
Unh, Ross Perot?
Nope, wasn’t him. But more than anybody, Perot got Slick elected on a plurality.
EVERY vote that Perot got, was taken directly from George H.W. Bush.
41 really should have invited Ross Perot to that family gathering years earlier. Perot was still a little torqued up because he believed the Reagan Administration, and Bush in particular, had been concealing the presence of American soldiers still being held in Vietnam years after the conflict there had ended.
Perot would get a notion in his head, it was a little hard to talk him down from it.
A re-write of history - what if Perot had NOT been in the 1992 race? Bill Clinton would have been an asterisk in history.
Kurt Schlichter nails the WaPost and others on the Left on this:
The Only Good Republican Is A Dead Republican
