  •  GHW Bush was a naval aviator (10+ / 0-)

    It seems (to me) appropriate to name an aircraft carrier after a president who served as a naval aviator, and was shot out of the skies while flying in WWII.

    Funny how the presidency of his son did so much to restore the credibility of GHW Bush.

      They're not "assault weapons"; just call them "Freedom Sparklers".

      ...when Bush ran in 1988 and 1992 and the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station was often used in Bush's biographical narrative during the campaign as the place where he learned to fly. Oddly enough, NAS CC didn't play a prominent place in John McCain's campaign biography narrative as the place where he learned to crash. (The first of John McCain's five airplane "incidents," including several that resulted in the loss of the aircraft, occurred while he was stationed at NAS Corpus Christi for advanced flight training. He crashed his plane into Corpus Christi Bay having failed to properly monitor his altitude.)

        by failing to properly monitor his ATTITUDE

        Help American return to sanity - vote the GOP OUT OF the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate in 2014 elections. America requires Democratic action in order to survive!
