Mostly, I remember "that smirk" as he mocked us for being on the side of caution or even, peace.



Bush pressures Hill Democrats over Iraq vote
September 14, 2002

WASHINGTON - With rising international support for confronting Iraq, President Bush ratcheted up pressure on Congress yesterday, mocking Democrats who want to delay a vote on authorizing force until the United Nations acts.

"Democrats waiting for the U.N. to act?" a chuckling Bush said. "Seems like, to me, that if you're representing the United States, you ought to be making decisions based on what's best for the United States.

"If I were running for office,"
he added, "I'm not sure how I would explain to the American people. You know, 'Vote for me, and oh, by the way, on a matter of national security, I'm going to wait for somebody else to act.'"

Poppy smiles at the thought of a "deluded gunman assassinated President Kennedy":

9. It was a Tell...

...like Dorian Grey where everything in a corroded soul is exposed, except no one involved ever goes to jail. More background from DU2:



Poppy Bush brought up JFK Assassination and ''Conspiracy Theorists'' at Ford Funeral

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x3029417

More complete video in which Poppy smirks or laughs or grins at the moment he says "deluded gunman" near the 1:09 mark:





George H.W. Bush’s Eulogy for Gerald R. Ford

The New York Times
Published: January 2, 2007

Following is the transcript of the eulogy for former President Gerald R. Ford delivered today by former President George H.W. Bush in Washington, as recorded by The New York Times.

EXCERPT…

After a deluded gunman assassinated President Kennedy, our nation turned to Gerald Ford and a select handful of others to make sense of that madness. And the conspiracy theorists can say what they will, but the Warren Commission report will always have the final definitive say on this tragic matter. Why? Because Jerry Ford put his name on it and Jerry Ford’s word was always good.

A decade later, when scandal forced a vice president from office, President Nixon turned to the minority leader in the House to stabilize his administration because of Jerry Ford’s sterling reputation for integrity within the Congress. To political ally and adversary alike, Jerry Ford’s word was always good.

PS: Of course, to Gerald Ford Warren Commission skeptics presented "no problem."

PPS: What's even more telling is how there are still people interested in scrubbing the assassination record of any reference to Poppy.

PPPS: For those interested, background...

Know your BFEE: Poppy Bush was in Dallas the day JFK was assassinated.

10. His face says, "Can you believe they bought it?"

I had heard about Poppy in Dallas, but not the Ford statement. I wish one of these guys, looking into the abyss of death, would spill it.
