The people I know that are close to the Bush family have told me the same thing.

re: Bush Funeral (non-political version)
Thanks for the link! I can’t believe the networks only had one camera there. With all the hype they should have had multiple cameras. Navy’s video was as bad as the pool’s. Leave it to a FOX News reporter to grab it on their phone camera. I don’t think you could have a better visual than that plane going up into the clouds. If they shot video from the plane I hope they release it. That missing man pilot had to experience one heck of a mindfrick going into those clouds blind and with that g-force.

If you’re curious Jim McGrath’s Twitter feed has a picture showing them folding the flag for his daughter. H.W. sure did one hell of a job planning this. No photos of the family at the internment site but rather that shot from their viewpoint. I heard that entire plan was 400 pages long and he had it done not long after entering the office. McGrath has a video showing his addendum laying out headstone and what he wanted it to say. Not surprisingly he has one just like those at Arlington.

I don’t think many will see a sight like this again. This is about so much...WWII hero, first envoy to China, Director of the CIA, Chairman of a major party, 8 years as a VP, President for 4 years (It would have been 8 if that little big eared freak didn’t grab 16% of the vote), and perhaps most importantly showed former rivals can work together for the good of the country. We’ll never have another President like that again in our or our children’s lives.


There are some very young legitimate war heroes already in government service, and elected office, in 40 years our kids and grandkids will be talking about one or two of them and their accomplishments just as we talk about Bush 41.

Oh no doubt. Though I disagree with her politics Tammy Duckworth could be the first OPENLY disabled president (FDR hid it.) Then you have the representative-elect who the SNL guy ate a big bag of shite for mocking. HOWEVER in totality I don't even think that's possible anymore. Look at his resume, the triad of War Hero/1st envoy to a growing world power/2 term VP-1 term President is nearly impossible. Then add in self made oil man and a being America's grandparents (along with Barbara) and it is just impossible. The interesting thing is how historians view him in 10 years. He's getting a nice bump now but will it last? I think James Baker was right on point when he said George was the best 1 term president ever.

I ran into this while searching to see if anymore photos came out from the burial service. I think it goes right to where his priorities always were and what made him so special for those that were tweens (aware of politics but still touched by demeanor) during his term in office. The mental picture of the search finally brought a smile to my face tonight.

re: Bush Funeral (non-political version)
And just to add, it had to be exhausting for the family... it was exhausting just to think about all the travel on top of normal grief on top of sharing it with the public. I still felt a bit empty when the camera shot ended. I'm sure it's cost to the feeling of those who lined the railroad tracks today. I know it was best for only family but thinking of the Reagans' funerals I remember so vividly Nancy clinging to the casket and receiving the flag. Then Ronald and his sister at Nancy's funeral. Those were touching moments.

Did I hear correctly that unlike the past few presidents, 41's burial site is going to be kept as a private area (away from library visitors)?

re: Bush Funeral (non-political version)
As I watched the Houston part of the funeral on C-Span 1 (minus any potential network comments), I was struck by the feeling that this was reflecting so much of what is so good about America - tradition, faith, unity, family, goodness, patriotism - minus all the hateful street theater comments, political lunacy, anger and partisan bickering we are fed on a daily basis by the commercial media of left and right persuasions. It was like seeing an America I grew up in, but that had grown distant over time. It was good to be reminded that it is still here - one can tend to forget from day to day. It was like coming home.

It's "private" in that you can't walk right up to the graves.

He thanked him for being the best father anyone could hope for, and was overcome by his emotions, briefly. It was a very "human" moment just about everyone who has lost a father can certainly relate to.


And you say someone cringed at that? Seems strange.


My bad I got caught up right after my original post.

the father/son bond that was on display is not normal today, sadly. definitely not something many care to have "rubbed" in others faces. it's "bad for society" for many, especially on the left. I will say millennials gen, and below for sure.

Heck, I would bet clinton, and obama felt something like "Why W got to have a good father?" during those emotional moments. While others that had/have great bonds with our fathers felt pride in that, when we heard the speech.

Anyway, sadly times have changed, and we've moved so far away from praising the traditional father/son bond that we saw. It was great to see for some, and for many it can't be connected to, sadly causing jealousy in some of them.

I will say that if I've been accused of any kind of "privilege" it's for being someone that can say he's proud of being his fathers son. Im in the millennial gen, but not reared like one....by my father. Older gen members may not have faced this, so perhaps harder to grasps.
