    I say his during his four years America had one of the finest times in our history. United most of the world in Dessert Storm, pretty much unheard of. Good leader and an excellent staff. Good man.

    He handled the transition to no Soviet Union in a way that kept things from going down the tubes.

    Didn't agree with some of his politics but.... politics does NOT define a man! nor should it!
    Respect the man for who HE IS not the position he holds.

    Don't know if anybody else posted this. Just making sure.

    Political cartoons are usually rather mean. This one wasn't. When I visited the Pensacola Naval Air museum last year, they had his old trainer on display and even had his log book from when he flew it.

    You should respect the position, your not gonna like everyone. Don’t know how these days we think we can disrespect positions because we don’t like someone. Is it ok for your kids to not listen to their teacher or principal because they have to earn their respect? You don’t have to listen to your boss at work....

    A great man who influenced an entire planet.

    On a side note, I'd like to thank everyone in the thread for keeping this respectful and politic free. The passing of a leader tends to bring out some strong views. This post shows how people who have differences can express condolences without arguments.

    slight misinterpretation there.... He is not just a dead guy. not just a dead EX-President.... but a well RESPECTED MAN!
    He earned his respect as a man....then coincidentally became President.

    Yes positions command respect. PEOPLE ....meh...
    I respect the office of The President Of The United States! thats a given (for me 100% ) ...but the INDIVIDUAL in that position may or may NOT be respected as an INDIVIDUAL.
