Now, Donald Trump is the second oldest living President. (After Jimmy Carter.)

The Ignored Legacy of George H.W. Bush: War Crimes, Racism, and Obstruction of Justice
The Intercept, Mehdi Hasan, Dec 1 2018

"When a political leader dies, it is irresponsible in the extreme to demand that only praise be permitted but not criticisms," as my colleague Glenn Greenwald has argued, because it leads to "false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts." The inconvenient truth is that the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush had far more in common with the recognizably belligerent, corrupt and right-wing Republican figures who came after him- his son George W. and the current orange-faced incumbent- than much of the political and media classes might have you believe.

He ran a racist election campaign... He made a dishonest case for war... He committed war crimes... He refused to cooperate with a special counsel... He escalated the racist war on drugs... He groped women.

Facts matter. The 41st president of the United States was not the last Republican moderate or a throwback to an imagined age of conservative decency and civility; he engaged in race baiting, obstruction of justice, and war crimes. He had much more in common with the two Republican presidents who came after him than his current crop of fans would like us to believe.

Barbara and George Bush were married for 73 years. The longest marriage of any POTUS. (Will Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter beat their record?)
