The bush family is nothing but war criminals. they desecrated the grave of Geronimo, they overthrow democratically elected governments, the lied to get us into war, the kill masses amounts of people. There is absolutely nothing good that they could have done to make up for the murder and crime that the Whole family has done. Jeremy Scahill laid it out best, http://m.youtube.com/watch?fbclid=IwAR1fJlibeO94uISZJBwfJ4V3Oy9tukVITr04wukRrCLxvV8gM2BU-NePKuI&v=k02EYvX0_jU&feature=youtu.be

AMY GOODMAN: Your final thoughts, in the last 30 seconds, on the review of President George H.W. Bush’s life that we’re seeing in the media today? JOHN R. MacARTHUR: Well, I’m horrified. There was a column in The Wall Street Journal yesterday by William McGurn headlined “George Bush’s Wonderful Life,” where he literally compares him to George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life, which is crazy on its face, because George Bailey is a kind of populist. He’s opposed to the power of Mr. Potter and his bank and so on and so forth. But George Bush was not a peace-loving guy. I’ll never forget George McGovern saying to me—and George McGovern—having been a bomber pilot in World War II—saying, “You know, most of us who came back from World War II had had enough. Bush didn’t get enough, didn’t get enough violence.” http://www.democracynow.org/2018/12/5/how_false_testimony_and_a_massive?fbclid=IwAR1Xnen932lYT7KclIY2Jjp1rwjKYoHKTRO0lhaCCfvdjuBe1wTzjsjg1M4

He may have conducted himself well and as a gentlemen, but behind all of that facade was a war mongering monster, who would stop at nothing to advance the interests of his wealth and his family, including sending soldiers to die for pointless causes, and having those soldiers bomb and murder innocent civilians, children, women and old people.

Sure Bush was far from perfect, and he did a lot of bad stuff, but a MEMORIAL just days after his death is actually a time to acknowledge the good he did. There will be plenty of time to speak ill of the dead later.

Hey everyone, could we give it a rest? Maybe give everyone a few months before attacking Bush? Look, I get it, he wasn't perfect, hell, he wasn't even necessarily a good person, but he wasn't terrible either. He served as President during a tough time and anyone in his position would have made choices that ended up killing people. He supported his son as any father would even if his view was skewed. Let him rest.

I Will Not Speak Kindly of the Dead. Bush Was Detestable. http://truthout.org/articles/i-will-not-speak-kindly-of-the-dead-bush-was-detestable/ He had some qualities of course, he wasn't fully in the pocket of NRA, he could speak in complete sentences and generally like an adult unlike Trump but there is quite a lot of revisionism from many articles on how his policies were. Clinton and others deserve a lot of criticism once they go as well.

I didn't feel it with bitterness. I just felt it almost generational. What I am missing?'"

This is an end of an era of failures that culminated in civil unrest i.e. Dallas shooting. A Failed Leadership. Nothing is really accomplished except more fear and loathing amongst left and right wing supremacists, followed by confused and insecure people in America trying to live an American dream that is really for White people and the privileged "Haves". And the current POTUS isn't helping to further compassion, understanding, and love for the fellow human.

I’ll tell you who: practically everybody including, evidentially, Mr Colbert and his writing team. Though I accept that the vile track record of Bush Sr. is a tough thing to make jokes about. Trump’s a hideous clown, to be sure, but he will literally have to go nuclear in order to to come even close to 41’s body count. Don’t speak ill of the dead?
