He was 'my guy' too, but lets not forget the day after he got the Israelis to sign over land to Palestine, the "PERFECT STORM" (as in the movie) hit Kennebunkport dead on. R.I.P, HW.

Same. That was a rough one for me, and I voted against him in his re-election bid because of it. I was just a kid, then.

But that is all I can really call him out on, to be honest. I think he was a good man.

Same situation with me guys. It cost me money because he also re-instituted or lowered the threshold on Capital Gains (can't remember which), and after selling a house I lost quite a lot of money because of that. Never forgave him either, but like you Engineoops I forgave him yesterday. As you said Phatv, he was a good man, and far from the worst president we've seen in our own lifetimes.

And their callsign was SAM41, in honor of the special passenger onboard.

IIRC, George H.W. Bush was the first president to fly on this AF 747, no?

R.I.P., Mr. President.
