George H.W. Bush dead at 94

Former President George H.W. Bush is dead at 94:

"George H.W. Bush, who in one term as president reasserted the U.S. as the world's lone
superpower, rallying an international coalition against Iraq's Saddam Hussein in the first
Gulf War and presiding over the fall of the Berlin Wall and subsequent collapse of the
Soviet Union, died on Friday. He was 94.

The announcement of his passing was made in a statement by his son, former President
George W. Bush."

I loved GW Bush's emotional eulogy. I, however, will remember the eulogy by Senator Simpson's for couple of things he said:

YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

"Hatred corrodes the container it's carried in" and "Humor is the universal solvent against the abrasive elements of life."

Rest in peace!

HW's and James Baker's efforts that culminated in the passage of the UN resolution authorizing the first Gulf War in 1991 was the finest piece of American diplomacy in my (now rather lengthy) lifetime.

I had many disagreements with the Bushes, pere et fils, but still respect HW for his strategic vision and diplomatic skills.
