I’d rather be a forgotten critic than an accomplished, remembered mass murderer

You might not have liked or agreed with him, but George H.W. Bush lived an exceptional life of accomplishment. His critics will be forgotten, he won’t be.

It figures that the woman who annihilated Libya and brought slave-selling jihadists to power thinks the guy who bombed Iraq with depleted uranium is a “class act”.

George H.W. Bush was a beloved father & grandfather, a war hero, a public servant, & a class act. In my experiences w/ him, I always valued his desire to listen, look at evidence & ask for ideas, even from people w/ different beliefs. My heart goes out to the entire Bush family.

Walsh: Bush 41's pardons of his own close aides, several of whom had been convicted of lying to investigators, "demonstrates that powerful people with powerful allies can commit serious crimes in high office -- deliberately abusing the public trust without consequence."

I sadly don't have time today to pay homage to George HW Bush, so I'll rely on the 1992 statement of Lawrence Walsh, the Special Counsel investigating the Iran-Contra crimes, when Bush pardoned his criminal aides & thus ended all investigations into Bush's own grave crimes #RIP41
Soooo... I didn’t read .... r u saying he was bad?
I can read Twitter comments about George Herbert Walker Bush on Twitter.
bad to the boneeeeee....da na na na neh
whats with all the censorship?
i thought america was land of the free. seems like its land of "not mature enough to deal with hard truths"
from the intercept article quoted above:
"It is true that the former president refused to vote for Trump in 2016, calling him a “blowhard,” and that he eschewed the white nationalist, “alt-right,” conspiratorial politics that has come to define the modern Republican Party. He helped end the Cold War without, as Obama said, “firing a shot.”"
“When a political leader dies, it is irresponsible in the extreme to demand that only praise be permitted but not criticisms,” as my colleague Glenn Greenwald has argued, because it leads to “false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts.”
..."“You and George Bush will wear that to your grave,” (ROGER) Stone complained to Atwater. “It’s a racist ad. … You’re going to regret it.”
..."He made a dishonest case for war. Thirteen years before George W. Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction to justify his invasion and occupation of Iraq, his father made his own set of false claims to justify the aerial bombardment of that same country."
sounds like alot of BC members LOL

"I will never apologize for the United States — I don't care what the facts are... I'm not an apologize-for-America kind of guy."
- George HW Bush, Aug 2 1988, after the US shot down an Iranian passenger plane, killing 290 people, including 66 children.

44 oversaw the destruction of Libya, Syria and Yemen.
41 and 43 invaded Iraq on lies, killing and displacing millions, and turning the country into a graveyard infested with depleted uranium.
A club of war criminals is more like it.

44 + 41 + 43 = a respectful club

I would take a president with this attitude any day over one who goes around the world bowing to other leaders and apologizing for America.
when you do something wrong, you should apologize

The U.S. is an extreme right-wing nation and it didn't get there beginning in Jan of 2017. The revisionist praise of George H. Bush is just the latest evidence of that fact.
A leader needs to look strong to the world.
real leaders apologize when they are wrong. thats what happens when youre honest.
guys like bush are no leaders; they are just leading us off a cliff
....or obese senile and racist?
