Recently there’s been a bout of Presidential crying. Both Presidents Bush have recently publicly displayed emotion. Elder Bush wept at a ceremony when speaking of his son, Governor Jeb…and yesterday, Younger Bush cried as he presented a Medal of Honor to the family of a New York Marine who literally dived onto a grenade to save his comrades. Article is here.
There’s been all sorts of blogosopherical attacks on the Bush’s about weakness, blubbering, whimpyness, etc. But as an emotive man that tears up when he sees someone attain their life’s goal before his very eyes…or sees a family torn asunder with the valiant death of their own child that honorably saved a dozen more sons and daughters…I’m glad to see that the President hasn’t let the job numb his soul.
