In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Former First Lady Barbara Bush Dead at 92

A very sad day. She was a great woman, and she just seemed indestructible. I somehow never expected her to go. She led a glorious, apparently very happy life.

Her obituary from the New York Times, which does the best, most comprehensive obituaries.

Here is a statement by President Trump. Interesting that he doesn’t mention any of the Bush men by name.

President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump join the Nation in celebrating the life of Barbara Bush. As a wife, mother, grandmother, military spouse, and former First Lady, Mrs. Bush was an advocate of the American family. Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection. She will be long remembered for her strong devotion to country and family, both of which she served unfailingly well. The President and First Lady’s thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mrs. Bush.

Bush ordered flags at federal buildings to be flown at half-mast.

  1. She won my heart when someone in the press asked her opinion when her granddaughters got caught using fake IDs to get into a club –
    She said with a smile – ..what goes around comes around.
    A down to earth, respected woman who raised a family of amazing children. RIP.

  2. It’s very rare for a Federal Government official to be hated by both sides of the aisle. But, Comey has a unique ‘talent’ to have it done. TWICE.

  3. I knew she had just started palliative care. I had no idea we would lose her so soon. Loved her book. I expect to see George H to go very soon too.
