Noting The Passing Of A President

     George H. W. Bush, June 12, 1924 – November 30, 2018, carried the office of President with what at times appeared to be reluctant grace.  President Reagan's easy handling of the Press meant whoever followed him would look less deft and President Bush was far more strait-laced than his predecessor.  He did the job and didn't whine, not even when Congress fouled his hopes to reduce the deficit and torpedoed his chance of reelection.

     He served well in many jobs for many years, and his passing leaves us with a little less perspective on current events.

Thank you for a different perspective from what I see elsewhere.

More telling, '41' left specific instructions that Trump was to be invited to his funeral.

Anyone care to offer a wager as to who of his successors will decline that courtesy, putting personal amicus ahead of the office?

I would like to say he was the best Commander in Chief I ever served under, and I thank him for that.
