George H. W. Bush Continues To Look Like a Much Better Person Than We Thought He Was

Except for the Socks Of Course

George H. W. Bush is one of the few American Presidents who was defeated in his bid for a second term.  But given his post Presidency actions and a realization of what he did do in office it is clear today that if the voters knew then what they know now Mr. Bush would have been handily re-elected.  In particular Mr. Bush recognized reality when he agreed to raise taxes to close a rising budget deficit, even as he had pledged not to, and his decision NOT to invade Iraq was a terrific one, and one which his son should have emulated as well.

Now comes the news that Mr. and Mrs. Bush were witnesses at a wedding, but not just any wedding.

George H.W. Bush is witness at same-sex marriage in Maine

Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara served as an official witnesses Saturday at the Maine wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, co-owners of a Kennebunk general store. Thorgalsen posted a photo on Facebook of the 41st commander-in-chief signing a set of documents for them at an outdoor celebration: “Getting our marriage license witnessed!”

Well nice going George and Barbara.  Nice going.
