In Response To: Unlike Cadet Bone Spurs. . . *PIC* (LongGone)
(by Max Boot via WashPost) . . . During World War II, Bush volunteered for the Navy at age 18 and two years later was shot down over the Pacific. Trump won five draft deferments to avoid the Vietnam War.
Bush held a long series of appointed and elective government positions before becoming president, making him one of the most knowledgeable occupants of the Oval Office. Trump had no government experience and still has next-to-no knowledge of policy.
Bush was so self-effacing that he hated to use the personal pronoun dont be talking about yourself, his mother instructed him. Trump, by contrast, hardly talks about anything other than himself.
. . . As with the death of John McCain, we again mourn the passing of a patriot who served a cause larger than himself and lament that there are so few like him left.
