纪念老布什总统

 

 

墨农

"老布什人生万幸中的不幸是,先于他跳伞的两个战友,未能幸存,这成为老布什此生永远的隐痛。第二次经历生离死别的动荡,是四岁的大女儿罗宾被确诊白血病。当地医生建议布什夫妇抱娃娃回家,病人想吃点什么就给吃什么吧,不折腾,在平静中走完短短的一生。
战友的牺牲和女儿的早夭,极大地塑造了青年布什的三观。他理解什么是人生的悚然无常,思考为什么是战友遇难而自己独存。布什知道,自己以后的人生路,要对得起死难的人。"

前任总统小布什(George W. Bush)5日为他的父亲、美国第41位总统老布什(George H. W. Bush)致哀悼词时说:“他教我当总统的意义为何,就是对于我们国家的公民,都要以廉正服务,以勇气领导,以爱心来行动。”

小布什在华盛顿国家大教堂(Washington National Cathedral )举行的国葬仪式上说:“当有一天历史写下纪录时,将记载着老布什是位伟大的美国总统。”身为美国第43位总统的小布什说,父亲是位“接近完美”的人。

演说结尾,身为长子的小布什难掩情绪激动,低头落泪说道:“您的高尚、诚恳与仁慈将永远与我们同在。所以,就在我们流着泪的同时,且让我们感念能够认识您、热爱您这么一位伟大且崇高的人,是多么有福。对于为人儿女者来说,您是最棒的父亲。”

小布什在演说中提到,父亲在85岁高龄还喜欢驾船在大西洋出航,到了90岁高龄则享受跳伞,“到了他人生最后日子,父亲的生命仍充满启发意义。就在他岁数越来越大的时候,他教导我们如何体面的、充满幽默且和蔼的变老。当天父最后召唤时,要如何带着勇气去面,对也要带着喜乐面对未来。”

他说,老布什年轻时两度与死亡擦身而过,一次是青少年时期差点因葡萄球菌感染而丧命,一次则是战争期间在太平洋落难,在救生艇上祈祷著救难人员最好在敌军来临之前即时相救,“上帝回应了他的祷告,从后来发展可以看出,因为上帝对老布什另有安排。”

对于父亲在家庭中的角色,小布什说,父亲一直都很忙,但从来不会忙到没有时间把对生命的热爱分享给身边的人;老布什与各行各业的人都能打交道,是有同理心的人,看重的是一个人的个性特质而非家世背景,父亲也从来不会愤世嫉俗,“他在每一个人的身上寻找优点,他常常也都能发掘得到。”

谈到老布什后来败选,小布什说,父亲承担失败,也接受失败是生命的一部份,“但他教导我们不要用失败来界定自我。他以身作则,让我们了解挫败可以让我们变得更坚强。”

他说,就连在大选中击败老布什的对手克林顿(Bill Clinton),后来也跟老布什成了朋友。小布什说,我们兄弟姊妹之间常开玩笑说,这些朋友跟我们如同手足,“仿佛是不同母亲生的兄弟一样。”

小布什说,母亲在今年稍早过世之后,父亲虽然很坚强,“但他唯一想做的,就是能再次握一握妈妈的手。”演说结尾,小布什说,父亲现在终于在天上拥抱早逝的女儿罗宾(Robin),并且再度与母亲牵手。

休士顿圣马丁主教教堂(St. Martins Episcopal Church)牧师雷文森(Russell Levenson)在致追悼词时说,老布什临终之前有毕生挚友、前国务卿贝克(James Baker)一直陪在身旁。雷文森在演说中描述老布什与贝克的情谊,坐在台下的贝克忍不住哭泣。

(Jim Watson/AFP/Getty Images) Before this week, the American people had never watched a president stand before the casket of another president who was also his father. They were moments that proved to be as personal as it was historic.

As George W. Bush watched the coffin containing the body of George H.W. Bush being carried into Washington National Cathedral Wednesday, his face was a map of pain. The same was true Monday in the Capitol Rotunda, where amid the pomp and the honor guards and the echoing marble, the 43rd president looked like nothing more than a boy crying for his dad.

There has long been speculation about the relationship between the first father and son to reach the White House since John Adams and John Quincy Adams two centuries ago. (The younger Adams only learned of the elder’s death after his burial.) Historians have scoured the path both Bushes took — Yale, stints flying fighter planes, the oil business and politics — for every sign of rivalry, jealousy and intrafamily psychodrama. Oedipus Tex.

But the reality was simpler, historians say, and was visible in George W. Bush’s grief, which will be on display again Wednesday as the 43rd president eulogizes the 41st president at Washington National Cathedral.

“He gave us unconditional love. And some of us tested it, I might add,” said George W. Bush in a “60 Minutes” interview that aired two nights after his father’s death.

Rather than Greek drama, the Bushes had an ordinary father-son bond that played out in extraordinary settings, these scholars contend. There were good times and bad, periods of distance and rebellion, the pain of loss and the joy of triumph. But whatever the weather, the climate was always loving.

“I think it was a tense relationship when George W. was in his sowing-his-wild-oats phase; and that was a pretty long phase,” said Jeffrey Engel, director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University, who has interviewed both Bushes. “But by the end, they were peers.”

Presidential scholar Mark Updegrove spent years talking with the Bushes and those who knew them for his 2017 book on their relationship, “The Last Republicans.” Of all the anecdotes he collected, he finds one of the most telling to be a moment of everyday parenting: George and Barbara Bush were walking with their toddler son when little George went into a tantrum, wind-milling blows against his dad.

“His father just holds him at bay with a palm against his red forehead and until he tires out,” Updegrove said. “And then they just walk. There was a way in which George W. would transgress and his father would have the patience to know that his better angels would eventually take hold.”

Both presidents resisted any effort to “put them on the couch,” but the senior Bush left a rich emotional record in thousands of letters he wrote to family and friends through his life. In them, he makes clear the full play of fatherly emotion toward his often-rambunctious oldest child.

“Georgie has grown to be a near-man, talks dirty once in a while and occasionally swears, aged 4 1/2,” he wrote to his friend Gerry Bemiss soon after taking his family from Connecticut to Midland, Tex. “He lives in his cowboy clothes.”

And then when his son was 9 years old: “Georgie aggravates the hell out of me at times (I am sure I do the same to him), but then at times I am so proud of him I could die,” he wrote to his father-in-law. “He is out for Little League — so eager. He tries so very hard. It makes me think back to all the times I tried out.”

In 1953, the boy was old enough to understand that tragedy had come to the family. His younger sister Robin had been sick. The Bushes had taken her to New York for treatment and one day months later, he was thrilled when they returned.

“I remember seeing them pull up and thinking I saw my little sister in the back of the car. I remember that as sure as I’m sitting here,” he told The Washington Post in a 1999 interview. “I run over to the car, and there’s no Robin.”

She had died of leukemia, a crushing loss that by all accounts brought the Bushes closer together as a couple and a family.

Soon after, George H.W. Bush began his political rise that took him from local party boss to Congress, national Republican chairman, U.N. ambassador and head of the C.I.A. His son, meanwhile, fell in line on the father’s path to the Ivy League and then back to Texas to look for oil.

It was a well-documented stretch of both work and partying for the younger Bush. His drinking produced some public embarrassments — including one 1985 episode in which he shouted profanity at Wall Street Journal reporter Al Hunt in a Dallas restaurant over a political story that he felt slighted his father, who was then in his second term as vice president.

The boozing was worrying his wife, Laura, and, Bush would say later, alcohol “was beginning to crowd out my energies.” But Bush Senior’s lofty roles also loomed large. “He looked in the mirror and said ‘Someday I might embarrass my father,’” his friend Joe O’Neil recounted in Updegrove’s book.

George W. would quit cold turkey in July 1986. That same month, his father asked him to be a senior adviser in his presidential campaign.

“There is not one scintilla of evidence that he ever thought his son was badly wayward,” Updegrove said. “The narrative that George W. Bush was the family ne’er-do-well is vastly overblown.

”The younger Bush quickly became a full participant in the Bush apparatus, serving as pugnacious gatekeeper during the campaign and an enforcer of sorts in the White House.

“If he needed someone fired, it was often W. who did it,” said Engel.

Father and son had become political partners, even if there was a vast gulf between president and adviser. Remarkably, even that gap would close. Employing all the family assets — from fundraising to friendships — George W. began his own rapid political rise, from the governorship of Texas to, finally, the same Oval Office his dad had occupied.

If there was any rivalry in having to share the country’s highest title with his son, it didn’t show in the giddy, exuberant, detailed letter about George W.’s inauguration that the elder Bush wrote to his friend Hugh Sidey, a Time magazine writer. Friends were suddenly calling him “41.”

“It’s funny after all these years to get a new name; but, hey, what does it matter if your boy is the president of the United States of America so help me God,” he wrote.

They frequently called each other “Mr. President” when together, according to Engel, a respectful joke open to no father and son but them.

History may have gotten its best insight into this remarkable relationship at the very end of it. In his final minutes, George H.W. Bush was on the phone with George W. The last words the 41st president ever spoke were to the 43rd, a four-word epitaph of everything they meant to each other:

“I love you, too.”
