So Bush died.

Personally I never liked the guy.

He seemed smug, superior, elitist, remote and only interested in the patrician class.

While I'm not glad he's dead, I won't shed a tear for his legacy.

I feel sorry for George W and Jeb Bush. It's beyond heartbreaking sad that they lost both parents in the same year .. :(

I think history will judge him well. He was the leader of the free world when the Berlin Wall fell. When Germany reunited and the evil Soviet Empire fell.
Rest in peace.

I was sad when he sold out his own platform as a moderate to be Reagan's VP. He had to buy into two things specifically he was opposed to, anti-abortion stance and supply-side economics, and he did. So I do hold those two against him. But otherwise, he was a very good President.

There is a discussion at DT about GHWB, where I gave my thoughts already.

Briefly, I think he was an average president. Of the six Republican presidents in my lifetime, I'd rank him 4th. Personally, I don't feel any strong connection. The best thing I can say is he never made any big mistakes. He was very prudent. I have nothing against prudence, but it isn't exciting. That is probably what women say about me. I'll shut up now.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I remember when he had his state of the union after desert shield, he stuttered/was interrupted when saying "...in aid of this small country" but it sounded like "in aid of this small c#nt". You would probably have to get an original recording of it to hear it, this kind of thing gets edited out and corrected later on.
Careful man! There's a beverage here! Being good is no fun. I want to make ignorant jokes too! :-| The Cleveland Browns look for another victory to build on their impressive two-game winning streak...

He represented the deep end of the deepest state. Thank goodness, Donald Trump put the grandson out of business. I wonder how he will be judged by his maker? He always knew what the people would do if they were to judge him on real facts.
