I always like Bush. As a man, you compare yourself to other men. It will probably come as no surprise to many here than I when I compare myself to most Presidents, I don't have any sense of being the lesser. Bush is the rare exception. Obama, somewhat, because he is my age, also a halfbreed, also a lefty. But Obama lacks a certain passion that leaves me cold, to be kind (that I find repellent to be honest) that tells me he spent too much of himself to become who he is. But HW struck me, from my earliest years, as being a genuine person with a passion for life that, and a truly decent man, that put him head and shoulders above all his other political contemporaries. Like me he is a Connecticut Yankee born and bred, like me AND Obama a lefty, like me and Obama he set out on his own journey, purposefully separated himself from those he grew up amongst to find his own path and person. But where Obama scaled the heights only to lose his own soul, where mickey scales the foothills so as to keep his, Bush both scaled the heights AND kept his own soul. If he was a failure anywhere, it was that I think George Bush, like me and Obama, I think HW was a bit so much self-focused that his relationships suffered, hence George W and the damage he inflicted on this nation. I am solitary, Obama may be affectionate, but doubt he has any deep love for wife or children, HW did truly love Barbara, had one true true friendship with James Baker III, but I think his kids, in the end, probably got shortchanged. We've all got only so much energy in our lives. One of the most impressive things I ever learned about George Bush was that in his childhood, his nickname was "Have-Half", because whatever he was given, he always wanted to share with another. I am impressed by his military record, he had courage I frankly don't think I have, I am impressed by the steel in his spine. During Reagan's first term, Edwin Meese tried to play HR Haldeman and control access to the Prez...one time he tried to stop Bush from entering the Oval Office and Bush just laughed in his face and brushed him aside. I don't mourn him, because I don't mourn those whose lives I envy, they come very few and far between because I am so stuck on mickey, but HW is one of the few men to whom, as a man, I bow in respect. So RIP George, for a live EXTREMELY well-lived.

As former president George H.W. Bush is being laid to rest, his service dog Sully is among those mourning the 94-year-old's death.
