Nation set to say goodbye to Bush

George H.W. Bush’s ‘quiet faith’ remembered at cathedral funeral

Rick Wilson - GOP consultant and a thorn in President Donald Trump's side - took to the pages of the Washington Post to laud late President George H.W. Bush, not for his life of public service, but for humiliating Trump with one of his final requests.

"You had seen a lot of chatty talk between the Clintons and the Obamas, the Carters", Wallace said, notes The Hill.

Waiting for his arrival inside, Trump shook hands with Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who greeted him by saying "Good morning". All four living ex-U.S. presidents and first ladies - Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, as well as George W. Bush and Laura Bush - are expected to attend.

"Let me tell you - when George Herbert Walker Bush was President of the United States, every single head of government in the world knew that they were dealing with a gentleman - a genuine leader - one who was distinguished, resolute and courageous", said former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. "He's a amusing man", she said.

Bush will be buried during a private service later Thursday at his family plot on the Bush presidential library grounds at Texas A&M University in College Station.

George W. Bush is expected to deliver the eulogy, the Associated Press reports.

Meacham remembered Bush as "America's last great soldier statesman, a 20th century founding father", who stood firm against both totalitarianism and "unthinking partisanship".

He and his late wife were also parents to daughter Pauline Bush, who died of leukemia at the age of 3 in 1953.

"That's not petty and small, that's real brother", Lemon said. This is not a funeral, this is a day of celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life. Trump also declared Wednesday a national day of mourning. Couldn't do it. I'm not that big a person. "I don't think anybody behaved badly", he said, recalling the bitter 2016 campaign between the two.

Trump's ascendancy to the head of the Republican Party saw him exchange vitriolic attacks with the Bushes, notably slamming the presidential son's 2003 invasion of Iraq as "one of the worst decisions in the history of our country".
