George W. Bush cries delivering eulogy for his father, George H.W. Bush (Full Eulogy)

I once heard it said of man that the
idea is to die young as late as possible at age 85 a favorite pastime of George
HW Bush was firing up his boat the fidelity and opening up the three 300
horsepower engines to fly joyfully fly across the Atlantic with the Secret
Service boats straining to keep up at age 90
George HW Bush parachuted out of an aircraft and landed on the grounds of
st. Anne’s by the sea in Kennebunkport Maine the church where his mom was
married and where he worshiped often more like to say he chose the location
just in case the chute didn’t open in his 90s he took great delight when
his closest pal James a baker smuggled a bottle of Grey Goose vodka into his
hospital room apparently it paired well with the state
Baker had delivered from Morton’s to his very last days dad’s life was
instructive as he aged he taught us how to grow with dignity humor and kindness
and when the good Lord finally called how to meet him with courage and with
the joy of the promise of what lies ahead one reason dad knew how to die
young is that he almost did it twice when he was a teenager a staph infection
nearly took his life few years later he was alone in the
Pacific on a life raft praying that his rescuers would find him before the enemy
did God answered those prayers it turned out he had other plans for George HW
Bush for dance part I think those brushes with death meeting cherished the
gift of life and he vowed to live every day to the fullest dad was always busy a
man in constant motion but never too busy to share his love of life with
those around him he taught us to love the outdoors he loved watching dogs
flusher cubby he loved landing the elusive striper and
once confined to a wheelchair he seemed happy a sitting in his favorite perch on
the back porch at walkers point contemplating the majesty of the
Atlantic that horizons he saw were bright and hopeful he was a genuinely
optimistic man and that optimism guided his children and made each of us believe
that anything was possible he continually broaden his horizons with
daring decisions he was a patriot after high school he put College on hold and
became a Navy fighter pilot as world war ii broke out like many of his generation
he never talked about his service until his time as a public figure forced his
hand we learned of the attack on chichi Jima the mission completed
they’ll shoot down we learned the death of his crewmates whom he thought about
throughout his entire life and we learned of the rescue and then another
audacious decision he moved his young family from the
comforts of the East Coast to Odessa Texas he and mom adjusted to their arid
surroundings quickly he’s a tolerant man after all he was
kind and neighborly to the women with whom he mom and I shared a bathroom in
our small duplex even after you learned their profession
ladies of the night that could relate to people from all
walks of life he was an empathetic man he valued
character over pedigree and he was no cynic he looked for the good in each
person and he usually found it dad taught us that public service is noble
and necessary that one can serve with integrity and hold true to the important
values like faith and family he strongly believed that it was important to give
back to the community and country in which one lived he recognized as serving
others enriched the giver soul to us his was the brightest of a thousand points
of light in victory he shared credit when he lost he shouldered the blame he
accepted that failure is a part of living a full life but taught us never
to be defined by failure he showed us how setbacks can strengthen none of his
disappointments could compare with one of life’s greatest tragedies the loss of
a young child Jeb and I were too young to remember the pain and agony he and
mom felt when our three-year-old sister died we only learned later that Dad a
man of quiet faith prayed for her daily he was sustained by the love of the
Almighty and the real and enduring love of her mom dad always believed that one
day he would hug his precious Robin again he loved to laugh especially at
himself he could tease a needle but never out of malice he placed great
value on a good joke so I chose Simpson to speak Oh an email he had a circle of friends
with whom he shared or received the latest jokes his grading system for the
quality of the joke was classic George Bush the rare sevens and eights were
considered huge winners most of them off-color George Bush knew
how to be a true and loyal friend he nurtured and honored many his many
friendships with a generous in giving soul there exists thousands of
handwritten notes encouraging or sympathizing or thanking his friends and
acquaintances he had an enormous capacity to give of himself many a
person would tell you that dad became a mentor and a father figure in their life
he listened and he consoled he was their friend
I think if Don Rhodes Taylor Blanton Jim Nantz Arnold Schwarzenegger and perhaps
the unlikeliest of all the man who defeated him
Bill Clinton my siblings and I refer to the guys in this group as brothers from
other mothers he taught us that a day was not meant to be wasted he played
golf at a legendary pace I always wonder why I insisted on speed golf he’s a good
golfer well here’s my conclusion he played fast so he can move on to the
next event to enjoy the rest of the day to expend his enormous energy to live at
all he was born with just two settings full throttle then sleep taught us what it means to be a
wonderful father a grandfather and great-grandfather he was firm in his
principles and supportive as we began to seek her own ways he encouraged and
comforted but never steered we tested his patience I know I did
but he always responded with the great gift of unconditional love last Friday
when I was told he had minister live I called him the guy answered the phone
said he I think he can hear you but he hadn’t said anything for most of the day
I said dad I love you and you’ve been a wonderful father and the last words he
would ever say on earth were I love you too to us seem as close to perfect but
not totally perfect his short game was lousy he wasn’t exactly Fred Astaire on
the dance floor the man couldn’t stomach vegetables especially broccoli and by the way he passed these genetic
defects along to us finally every day of a 73 years of
marriage dad taught us all what it means to be a great husband he married a
sweetheart he adored her he laughed and cried with
her he was dedicated to her totally in his old age dad enjoyed watching police
show reruns the volume on high all the while Holdings mom’s hand after
mom died dad was strong but all he really wanted to do was hold mom’s hand
again of course dad taught me another special lesson he showed me what it
means to be a president who serves with integrity leads with courage and acts
with love in his heart for the citizens of our country when the history books
are written they will say that George HW Bush was a great president of the United
States a diplomat of unmanned skill a commander-in-chief of formidable
accomplishment and a gentleman who executed the duties of his office with
dignity and honor in his inaugural address the 41st president of the United
States said this we cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car a bigger
bank account we must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal
friend a loving parent a citizen who leaves his home his neighborhood and
town better than he found it what do we want the men and women who work with us
to save when we are no longer there that we were more driven to succeed than
anyone around us or that we stopped to ask of a sick child had gotten better
and stayed a moment there to trade a word of friendship well dad we’re going
to remember you for exactly that and much more and we’re going to miss you
your decency sincerity and kind soul will stay with us forever so through our
tears let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you a great and noble
man the best father a son or daughter could have and in our grief but a smile
knowing that dad is hugging Robin and holding mom’s hand again

  1. No wonder he speaks like this ….he is praising his own father…..when talking about somebody who has died…….it is rather to talk about this….although George W Bush was known as TEXECUTIONER as he was governor of TEXAs…What a sheme…..This is not something to be very proud of ……

  9. George Herbert walker Bush. A war hero. A patriot. He was probably one of Best leaders of the free world ever. As war Reagan. Who they loved. My heart bleeds for his loss of Barbara Bush. They were together so long. America's last great couple. Who selflessly served. The rockefellers should build monument and we as Americans should all jump off the golden gate bridge and we can be united in heaven with papa Bush and if he's not too busy mixing with the underprivileged boys from boys town in heaven we can all I don't fucking know what is going on.

  15. Regardless of politics these people – father and son – are aspirational and exceptional. Seeing George Jr breaking down during this beautiful eulogy shows that ultimately it’s your mom and dad who count. Love them whilst you can cause one day all you’ll have is memories

  16. Baby dont cry soon u ll meet him in hell with ur king satan . Make tears like millions of women children killed because of u and ur father devil

  17. It doesn't matter if you cared for either of them as a president. The tears and speech are as genuine as they come. No one wants to say goodbye to their parents.

  24. Biggest notorious terrorist on earth Texas coward cowboy cow slaughter George Bush.

    Then USA television network should telecast all over the world. No eulogy. But happy pyrotechnics 🧨 never comes his legacy on surface again

  25. All those suits, presidents, they're all related. They're not all bad. The late Princess Diana for example…..

  26. I find the concept of a eulogy at a funeral very interesting.In my country eulogies don't happen.People gather at the casket grieve but there's no speech per se.Nobody gives a speech along the lines of 'Old Bill was always a prankster i remember 12 years ago' it just doesn't happen.I wonder what cultural specificity makes eulogies at funerals something common in the US?In my country in fact it would be considered borderline weird and even distastefull to give a eulogy.So again i find this western habit of eulogies fascinating very weird to understand though and i can't quite figure out why they happen.

  27. The Bush family have done so many dirty things behind closed doors over generations that’s affected so many people to a point where it’s evil…you don’t deserve any condolences – burn in hell, all of you (the quicker you leave this Earth the better). 🖕🏻🖕🏻

  28. Eulogy is not appropriate for a funeral. It's about the living. The dead are judged to Hell or Heaven. I'm not sure about Bush. I don't like the Bushes. I was a Reagan Buchanan fan

  29. Pause it at 4:44 and ponder this: There is the current President of the United States of America, and four more previous Presidents and their families in that Church. Can you imagine how many Secret Service individuals are protecting that place at that moment? Let that sink in for a bit…

  30. Daddy's gone to hell to wait to see his kids again, the Bush's will pay by man and God for what they did to new York on 9.11.

  31. My father only kill JFK but I have kill thousands of people, and I am very proud of that. Larry Silverstein keeps sending me money because he wants me to do it again. But I told him I am going to be very busy down in Guantanamo Bay trying to save my own ass. They executed my father and now they are trying to do the same thing to me, just because I knocked down those buildings in New York. Why don’t they go after that guy Obama and his boyfriend, they keep going around pissing on everyone. Stupid Hillary lost the election, why don’t they go after her.

  32. It doesn't matter what party, this is a great human being who loved his father & it breaks my heart to see him break down talking about him. God bless everyone. We are all fellow human beings & Americans. We need to get back to that one nation love.

  33. Good. Maybe you'll also cry for the millions of Iraqis whose lives you have caused. If you don't here, you'll do afterlife. With much bigger and redder tears.

  34. I bet he wishes he didnt kill so many people .i guess he has his reward now. Justice from the righteous judge
