George H.W. Bush has died at the age of 94.

On the Donald - "I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader," said George Bush Sr, who was president between 1989 and 1993.

He also told the author of the book, Mark Updegrove, that he felt Mr Trump ran for the presidency because he had "a certain ego", in remarks reported by US media outlets including CNN and the New York Times.

Can't wait for the Trump Tweets!

Sure, his handlers will prevail to make him appear presidential for the moment, but most know in his heart he couldn't care less.

13. Well you are easy to deal with.

You think you are intelligent, but you are not.

You think you are an independent thinker, and you are anything but.

For such a sterling intellect, your TDS is dulling your IQ obviously.

18. I'm so depressed after reading this.

Why do you do this to me?

My only resolution is to spend $58,000 on our next international trip. You know, an elite small group tour where we fly business class, enjoy world class dining, $900 per night hotel rooms, special tours reserved for the most discreet travelers, interesting travel companions, etc. etc. etc.

You'll enjoy this. On our first trip to Africa, another small group tour consisting of 13 following the great migration, incredible tented camps and cuisine, a noted figure in the Watergate scandal was in our group. Absolutely fascinating. So tell me about some of YOUR travel adventures, you know, just to get me out of the severe depression you've caused me!

Our Africa trip ended up being such a perfect, one-of-a-kind travel experience that I can't see another ever replacing it for 1st place.

But there's always the battle for runner-up!

I merely stated that he has died, along with a few quotes from him.

Where is the lack of sympathy on my part?

Oh, and by the way, yesterday I did TWO loads of laundry AND took a shower. Downright disgusting, eh?

stopped talking about it himself.
if you are smart enough to complete a sentence, you are smart enough to see the difference.

10. I respect GHWB. He was a great Houstonian

I ever agreed with his political goals. But he left his country and did everything a man could for his adopted city. RIB. You’ve given everything a man can for his nation and you deserve long wonderful rest now.

15. This we can agree on. Didn't like his politics, but he was a hell of a nice guy... always was.

And when the time came, he signed up and put his ass on the line.
The Bush family is about as nice as they come.

We raise money for our Adult Literacy Center in my town. It’s an off shoot Barbara’s literacy foundation. I’ve paid good money to listen to Neil Bush speak (event though he’s an asshat) because the cause is worthy. RIP George and Barbara.

25. Spot on

At the time I felt he had squandered the previous 8 years but I never doubted his sincerity and desire for what was best for the country. During his 4 short years he presided over a tumultuous period in history. Between the collapse of the Iron Curtain and the Middle East exploding he managed to avoid the very real potential for global conflict. I can't ask for much more than that.

RIP.

GHWB was an American when it counted, instead of being a limp noodle to stay in his party’s good graces. I commend his strength of character.

20. Some times it does.

Yet the contrast, one leader who said "read my lips, no new taxes" who then increased taxes, versus another leader who said he was going to lower them and then did.

In terms of actions, one versus the other, I'll take the guy that campaigns on lowering taxes and then lowers them, over the guy that says 'no new taxes' and then 2 years later signs his name on new taxes, every time.

Wouldn't you?

30. So one guy said

"No new taxes" and raised them


The other guy said, "We're gonna build that wall and Mexico IS GOING TO PAY FOR IT!!"

So far Mexico refuses.


So if Mexico doesn't pay for the wall, who does?

32. Key words: "So far".

If mexico does not, I'd be happy with temporary tax increases to pay for it...


Because no matter who pays for the wall, we NEED the wall., and our current leader is spot on about that.

Not many people will ever come close to all he accomplished in his lifetime. It doesn't excuse the covert operations and shady business deals he had a hand in, still he did manage to keep the Nation together for four years.
