George W. Bush is part of a very important American family. The Bush family roots are in two very opposite places: Texas and New England. No two places could possibly be less similar. His Yale, and Harvard Law School, upbringing certainly did not signal any chance at all of his becoming Governor of Texas! Yee-Haw. You'all. "W" was a baseball team owner, of all things, And he brought to the White House that All-American kind of guy who could play center field or lead the most powerful nation on Earth. He was a quiet, humble Christian, but his faith showed in every way -- in everything he did, as Governor, President and now as former President.
The "L" word? Legacy, of course, What is his legacy? I think I know. Walking through life, George W showed the world that God had a plan for his life and it all took place just as the Lord planned it -- naturally. He was a man of faith, and a man of stalwart courage and stability. He launched the war against Afghanistan to crush the Taliban, earned the total respect and loyalty of the Armed Forces, then went on to remove Sadaam Hussein from power and restore Iraq as it had never been restored before. Ancient Babylon has joined the world of the 21st Century because of "George's war."
He had no racial prejudice in his bones. He was a former Texas Air National Guard fighter pilot who brought his plane in safely for a good landing, i.e. he gave our nation 8 years on the right flight path and brought us in for a landing on solid ground. When he left office, Black Americans, and Africans, British and Canadians and Mexicans, all had the greatest of respect for him. His manner was self-assured, so his enemies called him arrogant. His speech was relaxed and casual, so he was called "dumb." His decisions were always right, so he was called a despot. So be it. His enemies, in the 66 per cent Camp, mostly Democrats, love to hate George. Hate is a destructive thing in and of itself, and they will be destroyed by their own hatred and their own words. Meanwhile, "W" will live out the rest of his life in a very pleasant way, rooting for brother Jeb to get ahead, and maybe buying another baseball team. God bless him some MORE. I am in the 33 per cent who say "boy, were we lucky in America to have you when you were needed."
