I'm a bit sick of this fawning over him. He was not a great president. He may have done some commendable things prior to becoming president but there was a reason why he was a one term president.
Exactly! He was bad enough to usher in the Marxist Clinton.

Here is my take on GHW Bush. He was never a conservative and a thoroughbred GOPe. To be elected president he had to run as a conservative. That being said, he was a hero, patriot and apparently a very good man. I think he should be given credit for managing the downfall of the Soviet Union as that could have deteriorated into a serious situation. Also, he let the military handle the Gulf War which turned out to be quite a success.

I think that's argumentative. I believe he botched the work Reagan completed. Bush allowed all kinds of nuke material to enter the black mkt, allowed Gorbachev to come to the US and start the ""Green Cross" movement, the father of the Green movement that helped usher in AGW and the push that we were killing the planet and needed to kill capitalism to solve it.
Nah, his "Kinder, Gentler" bull shit gave us the the Establishment appeasing GOP that nearly destroyed this country.
Being a nice guy, or was it all a facade? Because he certainly didn't have the best interests of the country as a priority.

A reflection.
The media is awash in a orgy of Bush adoration for a simple reason;
to draw an very unfavorable contrast versus Trump.
He was the grand-son of Samuel and the son of Prescott who "did politics"
in Ct; at which he was uniquely lousy. Next, he moved to Texas where he
repeated his performances against Yarborough and then Benson.
Had Reagan not tossed him a life preserver in 1980, doubt we would have
ever heard from him again.
As for his 'hero' label, he was one of some 250,000 Army Air Corpsmen who
were called to serve in WW 2 which was their duty rather than any achievement.
Ageless wisdom asserts that 'the Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend.'
If Bush ever knew this, he might have understood that Iran, not Iraq, was our
mortal enemy in the Middle East, since the the overthrow of the Pahlavi Monarchy,
which had been established after WW 1.
To this very, moment Iran remains the cauldron fomenting terror across that Region!!
