    I admired Bush, damn good American and President. RIP sir, had we ever met I'd have been honored to address you as Mr. President.

    During the Gulf War Bush showed the word that he had the sack to take charge and LEAD. He reminded me of one of those gunslingers with that "I'll give you until (such a time) to do whatever. If not done he made damn sure kept his word and followed up. On could speak of Bush with pride s being the leaded of this nation, Haven't seen much of that since.

    He had a Mister Rogers voice but he was a courageous Navy pilot, CIA director and President. Too bad his son was no where near his plateau.
