As I’ve mentioned before, there’s no shortage of beautiful tributes to George H.W. Bush on Twitter. Here’s a brief taste:
President George H.W. Bush led a long, successful and beautiful life. Whenever I was with him I saw his absolute joy for life and true pride in his family. His accomplishments were great from beginning to end. He was a truly wonderful man and will be missed by all!

The letter George H.W. Bush left for Clinton after his defeat is the definition of elegance, grace and statesmanship.
“You will be OUR President – Your success is now our country’s success. I’m rooting for you.”
Where did this dignity go?

President Bush 41 – wore many hats during his 94 years – college baseball player, fighter pilot, congressman, ambassador, CIA director, VP, President, husband, dad, granddad & great-grandad. His final role – angel. May he Rest In Peace, reunited with all those he loved in life.

RIP President Bush. You fought for your country in WW II and your presidency was marked by dignity, courtesy and grace. You will be missed.

Karen and I were saddened to learn of the passing of President George H.W. Bush and we send our deepest sympathies to the entire Bush family. President Bush loved his family, loved this country and his legacy will be a lifetime of service to the United States of America.

That leads me to this. What on EARTH was the AP thinking???
George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94. https://t.co/LaSU5ho2os pic.twitter.com/ld9KqRHdaU

Really guys? That’s what you decided to go with? Who approved of that tweet? It’s horrible.
Really? Is that all you can say about the man? Your description is pretty pathetic.

You people are an utter disgrace to journalism! This is shameful!

Oh right, now I remember why people hate the media.

Your social media person (AND whoever came up with this headline) should be fired. How pathetic.

Such an incredibly inapproriate headline.

Shame on you.

Classless. At a time meant for reflection, for an “unbiased” news source to put spin on the loss of a war hero and lifelong public servant is gross at best. Learn from legislators on both sides of the aisle right now who can at the very least appreciate his love for his country.

What the hell even is this??? Have some respect.

Congratulations. You've managed to get even liberals pissed off at you for this garbage headline.
Quite an accomplishment. Maybe someone will put it in your organization's obit.

The @AP sticking the knife in Bush's legacy on the night he passes away.
And then they wonder why so many people don't trust them. https://t.co/VotMQzrr76

It’s pretty sucky tweet.
This is why people hate MSM. This right here.
