...Looking at the 8 years of Obama, I'd say we were dang blessed to have the Bushes.   

That I will definitely agree with.  I will always say I am damm glad we had President Bush 43 in the White House on 9-11.  Can you imagine what would have happened if Obama was president on that day?  We would be bowing to our enemies and begging for their forgiveness.  If Obama was president then, he would be blaming Americans.  I think he does now.  Obama never cared for America.  He was and is openly hostile to this nation -- a country that gave him everything, most of which it is doubtful he even worked for.  His 8-year reign was meant to destroy America and turn it into some third world banana republic.  And he nearly succeeded.

Houston service-

America the Beautiful- Congregational hymn

This is My Country - Choral Anthem
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I think it's the most powerful musical tribute to the military.

Commendatation, followed by prayer from Bishop of Texas

Ending with "Onward Christian Soldiers," one of GHW's favorites.......... NOT a "PC" hymn. It's been banished in many hymnals for being too warlike!

President George W. Bush is leaving the train now.  Family with him.

Sounds like a college glee club singing, "In the Mansions of the Lord."

Casket being removed from train.  (FOX is having a bad time with video feed!)

Hail to the Chief.

Now the band sounds like it's playing a school fight song.  Anyone from Texas know?

Ah......... it's the Aggie theme song!  (Thanks to Charles Paine for announcing that!)
