On not selling out

George W. Bush 40 9-11 airplane pic

“One of my proudest moments is I didn’t sell my soul for the sake of popularity.”

–George W. Bush

The story of the picture: This is one of my favorite photos of President George W. Bush. It was taken on Air Force One on September 11, 2001, as he flew from Florida to Washington D.C. The U.S. had been plunged into war by the terrorism acts of 9/11, making the president, who had been in office only nine months, a wartime president who vowed to protect the American people. He kept his promise through his two terms in office.

    He didn’t have to sell his soul. Isn’t his popularity rating now about 85% ??? I somehow admire “W” more than Reagan – who when active had the greatest following of all. YLSF
