Farewell, Mr. President

by @ 5:30 pm. Filed under Milblogging, Politics

I’m not going to pig-pile on President Bush. He’s done plenty of things to raise my ire but he’s also done things that earned my everlasting respect and thanks.

To me, President Bush will always be the guy in this picture:


This story is over 4 years old now, but it has stuck with me ever since I saw Blackfive’s post. Amidst the constant barage of 24/7 BDS “news”, I keep seeing Pres. Bush on that plane making sure every Guard member knows how grateful he is.

“May God bless you all,” the commander in chief said over the plane’s public address system. “May God keep you safe.” As he worked his way up and down the plane’s aisles, posing for photographs, signing autographs and shaking hands, the happily surprised troops called out to him.

“That’s my president, hooah!” shouted Sgt. Wanda Dabbs, 22, a member of the 230th Area Support Group, a Guard unit from Tennessee. Others seconded her cheer.

I don’t think it’s an accident that we haven’t had another terrorist attack in this country since 9/11. I believe GW had more to do with keeping us safe than we (the ignorant public) will ever know. I’ve always believed his military mission was sound and I still believe in the mission! We’ve won in Iraq and have an equally good chance of winning in the mountains of Afghanistan if the Obama doesn’t screw around and lets our military do what it does best.

Good Luck, Mr. President! I wish you and Laura nothing but a great life that you’ve certainly earned.

    I must echo this feeling also. Almost all of the people in this country haven’t a clue as to how much sacrifice these troops put themselves through every day to keep us safe at home in the good ‘ole USA. Mr. Bush has endured the stone throwing and the press badgering but knows this secures our lomg term safety for all the people of the US here at home. His approval rating may be very low but he still has me on the plus side in his favor. Thanks GN for a great post. And thank you Mr. President and all of our volunteer troops for keeping us safe. God Bless.
