Honestly while I don't agree with Bush Sr. I feel that approaching him/his family just to curse at him is rather stupid.
It reduces us, Americans, to performing the antics of the typical 3rd Worlder. Next we'll have Molotov cocktails.
Additionally how weak is it to attack a president who hasn't been in office in 18-19 years. Wow. Lets go find Jimmy Carter and curse at him.
I'll presume the maker of the video is in Houston- I only wish I could get a picture of him/them so I could laugh at them when/if I should ever see them.
Regardless of how you may feel about a former leader unless you're willing to take arms against them, shouting and yelling will do nothing except make you look like a jackass. There is such a thing as 'tact'- something I realize the tinfoil hat wearers here completely lack.
Bush Sr is a prime example of another huge flaw in our government and the way we chose our leaders. A former director of the CIA should never be allowed to be President of the United States.
The United States entered World War II early in 1942. In August of that year the U.S. government's Office of Alien Property Custodian, operating under the Trading with the Enemy Act, seized all property of the Hamburg-Amerika line. Two months later the same agency seized the Union Banking Corporation, of which Prescott Bush was a director. At the time, shareholders included Prescott Bush, E. Roland Harriman, and several Nazi agents. The following week the government also took action against two other organizations run by Bush and Harriman - the Holland-American Trading Corporation, and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. The following month assets of the Silesian-American Corporation were also seized under the same law. A government report characterized the Silesian-American Corporation as a holding company for German and Polish subsidiaries, that had been operated by the German government since 1939. The seizure order stated that the shares were held for the benefit of the Thyssen family, who were designated nationals of an enemy country.

The people that are criticizing him for cussing think about this.......what if your child fought in a war that was driven by power, greed and lies, and was killed? That is what thousands of parents are going through. If it were my child and I saw Bush in a restaurant, I would be screaming obscenities like there was no tomorrow. It isn't about having a low IQ like one of you said, it's about being ANGRY. A lot of people are angry. At least this guy had the courage to say what he felt.

Would you have had your opinion already there, politically correct and ready ?
You would have said whatever was uppermost on your mind in those few seconds
All very well to sit back in armchair judgement in a forum
but I'll bet MOST people would have turned to WATER
and would have been INTIMIDATED
even SUCKED UP to Bush, perhaps, when confronted by 'da President' and his entourage
The guy did well, VERY well. When challenged, he replied, 'This man is responsible for MILLIONS of deaths ' ---- and that is TRUE. And THIS guy, in the video, is the one who said it, out loud. He had the presence of mind to SAY that
I've seen people stumble and make NO sense at all in this and other fora, when provided ALL DAY to come up with an even half-intelligent post
So hats off to this man
He did WELL in my opinion
