The Atlantic thought it would be a good idea to explain how the late President George H.W. Bush, who died less than two days ago, had good manners but didn’t possess moral courage.

What a thing to write about someone who has just died.

Also, why is anyone questioning the moral courage of a man who became the youngest fighter pilot in Navy history, flew 58 combat missions during World War II and who survived his plane being shot down over the Pacific Ocean?

Now imagine if a conservative had said this about … dunno … Barack Obama?

Not agreeing with Bush’s policies as a president or legislator is one thing.

Questioning the moral courage of a man who died less than two days ago is quite another.
