George H.W. Bush: A Man of Character

I first met the man who would become America’s 41st president in 1968. He was a Houston congressman and I was a young reporter for a local TV and radio station.

My first impression was how kind he was to this “kid,” who had just moved to Texas from the Washington, D.C., area and was just starting to learn the “language,” like “fixing to go” and “y’all.”

Everyone who worked for George H.W. Bush, or knew him, has a story to tell. I have several.

Bush was a letter writer like none other. I think I have an almost complete collection of his notes and letters, some typed, some handwritten, from every position he held in public life. These include congressman, Republican National Committee chairman, chief liaison officer to the People’s Republic of China, U.N. ambassador, CIA director, vice president, and president.

When he became president, I wrote him a congratulatory note and he responded on White House stationery. I later told him I was keeping the letter “just in case you amount to something.”

He laughed.

SORRY. But hind sight is 20/20 when it comes to the Bushes. Not very flattering. They did NOTHING for AMERICA but taking care of the ESTABLISHMENT elite. Look at how the BUSH family treated our PRESIDENT. Look at how warmly they treated the CROOKED OBAMA'S and Clinton's?? Tell me they aren't in cohorts with each other. The media talk trash about how they ALL got along. How we need to come together. They ALL are together.
