They don’t make ’em like they used to. Politics aside, the so-called Greatest Generation earned that moniker fair and square.
The wife of the 41st president of the United States, Barbara Bush exuded poise, wit, and charm as a class unto herself.
She passed away Tuesday evening from complications of COPD and heart distress but had bourbon at her bedside all the while.
May God rest her soul.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Few women can claim to be as tough and spunky as Barbara Bush, former first lady, and wife of George H.W. Bush. So much so that I’m wondering if Chuck Norris is all he’s cracked up to be.
Barbara is famous for her wit and charm, and it would appear that there is no shortage of it, even though she’s currently suffering from severe failing health.
According to CBS Politics reporter Katie Watson, a fellow reporter was told that even though Barbara is bedridden, she’s still very alert and carrying on conversations.
Oh, and she’s also enjoying bourbon.
A source close to the Bush family tells CBS News’ Jenna Gibson that, while Mrs. Bush’s COPD makes it difficult for her to breathe, she is alert and was having conversations last night. She was also having a bourbon.
