Happy Birthday President Bush
A World War II veteran who was shot down and rescued in battle, Bush served in a variety of government posts before being elected President in 1988. His time in office started well, but his handling of the economy eventually gave voice and rise to a young Democrat from Arkansas named Bill Clinton. Clinton eventually would defeat Bush in a bitter race though the two combatants from 1992 would become the best of friends.
However you feel about him politically, George H.W. Bush is a good man, and he is deserving of the respect he's due. Happy Birthday Mr. President, and I hope to see him skydiving at 90.
