‘Proud and praying’: George H.W. Bush salutes the men and woman aboard his namesake carrier

georgehwbush0810newestThe country’s classiest former president is proving it again.

With U.S. aircraft flying combat missions over Iraq from the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush, the carrier’s namesake posted his prayers for the safety and wellbeing of the men and women aboard.

The 41st president of the United States, whose career in public service started as a naval aviator in World War II has spent his 20-plus years since leaving office as a credit to the country.

He hasn’t engaged in the relentless hucksterism of Bill Clinton, his immediate successor who’s spent his time in office cashing in personally with lucrative speaking engagements and politically with a wife potentially aiming for a return to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

He hasn’t become a fatuous critic of his own country like another one-term president, Jimmy Carter, whose name is practically synonymous with national futility.

Instead, he and former first lady Barbara Bush have set a modern standard for class after the White House the current occupants are unlikely to even attempt.

And as the responses to Bush’s Twitter posting showed, the sane parts of the country are grateful.

This one says it all.
