The American people have experienced three men whose last name is BUSH. The father George H.W.Bush, unlike his sons, joined the military in World War II and fought with honor and courage in combat. He alone of those with the name of Bush can look in the mirror of time and feel proud for his accomplishments. He supported civil rights,he refused to allow Israel to push the United States around, and he did urge his son, George to think twice about going to war
George H.W. to son. “You know how tough war is son, you’ve got to try everything to avoid it.” Sorry, the son did NOT know anything about war, he avoided it during the Vietnam war.
George H.W. on Rumsfeld: “An arrogant fellow. I think he served the president badly. There’s a lack of humility, a lack of seeing what the other fellow thinks. He is more of kick ass man.”
George H.W. on Dick Cheney: “Just an iron-ass.
But, in the end, dad made clear to son, “it’s not Cheney’s fault, it’s the President’s fault. The buck stops there.
