George H. Bush RIP

Good man, mediocre president, good foreign policy.

Had this sub not have rescued him, he would have been eaten by Japanese officers on Chichi Jima:

The loss of his gunner haunted him the rest of his life, so he said. Survivors guilt.

Is that what caused him to grab young women's arses?

virgil5 - 01 Dec 2018 13:30:34 (#3 of 142)

"H.W." you doofus.

HorstVogel - 01 Dec 2018 13:32:36 (#4 of 142)

#2 when did he start do that rendered? (apart from Mrs. Bush that is)

solomongursky - 01 Dec 2018 13:32:48 (#5 of 142)

Classy letter he wrote to Clinton.

HerrWalrus - 01 Dec 2018 13:32:54 (#6 of 142)

Charming.

Chastening to remember that George Bush senior once seemed to be the worst person in the world. And then his son seemed to be the worst person in the world.

Innocent times.

HorstVogel - 01 Dec 2018 13:36:50 (#9 of 142)

there will always be one worse

Moschops - 01 Dec 2018 13:37:15 (#10 of 142)

Jeez, who is gonna be worse than Trump?

mancurse - 01 Dec 2018 13:38:14 (#11 of 142)

Heh, perhaps in a couple of year's time I'll be reminiscing over how I once thought that Trump was the worst person in the world.

Young Barron has a lot to live up to.

virgil5 - 01 Dec 2018 13:40:19 (#13 of 142)

It'll be a Russian after this.

popstar7 - 01 Dec 2018 13:40:45 (#14 of 142)

Nearly everything about Trump is head-spinningly awful. But it shouldn't be overlooked that he named one of his sons after an alias he used to use to call the New York tabloids to plant stories about himself.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if this thread header read-

Donald J Trump. RIP

flowbagging - 01 Dec 2018 13:44:14 (#16 of 142)

- RIP

+ Horribly DEAD Hooray!

virgil5 - 01 Dec 2018 13:57:04 (#17 of 142)

H.W. Bush:

"Read my lips: NO NEW TAXES!"

"I see a THOUSAND POINTS OF LIGHT!"

Then he puked in the lap of the Japanese ambassador.

Famous for using a stealth bomber to drop a 2000lb bomb on the barrio surrounding his drug dealer "Pineapple Face" Noriega, killing 1000s of innocent people.

Great guy.

Rot In Perdition.

Gotout - 01 Dec 2018 13:57:37 (#18 of 142)

I used to think that George H. Bush's son was the worst creature in the world, then the American people found Trump.

Garden - 01 Dec 2018 17:36:35 (#19 of 142)

Me, I'd have preferred a second Carter term - the world would be an infinitely improved place had GHWB not had a go at the White House.

But he was an excellent example of his generation.

RIP.

Two terms for Reagan before he got his crack at it. He seemed competent in comparison.
