Letter President Bush Left Behind Is a Sign of How Bad Our Country Has Become – ‘I wish you well’

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by CNN:

When Bill Clinton entered the White House, he found a letter from the man he beat: George H.W. Bush. Notes from outgoing presidents to incoming ones are a tradition, but Bush’s letter on January 20, 1993, is a lesson on grace in defeat.

“He made us feel at home, as much as he could. Total class,” Clinton said of the letter.

Here’s the full text of the letter:

Dear Bill,

When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.

I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.

There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course.

You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.
Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you.

Good luck—

 

Young Conservatives shared a story about Bush Sr that’s touching the hearts of Americans around the country:

One of the hardest things for any parent to deal with is the loss of a child. Former President George H.W. Bush did a lot in a lifetime of public service. But for him and for his wife Barbara, the loss of their daughter, Robin was the worst.

Robin was their oldest girl who died from leukemia at 3 years old.

And when cartoonist Marshall Ramsey thought of what he wanted to do in his cartoon on the passing of the former president and his final flight, he captured it perfectly, reuniting him with his wife of 73 years, Barbara and Robin.

From USA Today:

Clarion Ledger cartoonist Marshall Ramsey shows Bush flying his TBM Avenger, the same plane he flew in the Navy during World War II, up into the clouds to join his wife who passed away in April and their young daughter who died from leukemia at age 3 in 1953.

Ramsey’s latest cartoon is a follow-up to his viral cartoon depicting Barbara reuniting with her daughter after decades apart.

“I received a very kind note from President George H.W. Bush’s Chief of Staff for the Barbara Bush cartoon. President Bush was unable to write due to his Parkinson’s, but it was his sentiments. And it was very humble and gracious,” Ramsey said.
