Hugh Hewitt: George H.W. Bush: 1924 – 2018


The nation mourns the death of President George Herbert Walker Bush, our 41st President. And what a President. What, in fact, a man.

An honest to God war hero, a congressman, an ambassador to China, a party chair, a CIA Director, a Vice President and a model president, model post president and father to a president.

His greatest achievement was the careful management of the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet empire. He won the war against Saddam if not the peace. He put Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court – a cornerstone of the originalist renaissance. Bush got crucial amendments to the Clean Air Act through dealing with acid rain and ozone, and he embraced Nelson Mandela on the White House lawn in the first year of that great man’s release.

Kind, gentle, far-seeing, tough as the fighters he flew, he was the epitome of leadership.

George H.W. Bush earned a country’s love and respect and we shall miss him all, all tens of millions of points of light he inspired.
