comparing ford and bush

Gerald Ford's death prompts some thoughts on the similarities and differences between Ford and the current occupant of the White House, George W. Bush.


Ford was from a humble background, Bush was the son of a President and grandson of a Senator, from a wealthy family.

Ford was a distinct improvement over his predecessor.

Ford's wife Betty never killed anybody behind the wheel.

Ford wasn't an alcoholic, but his wife was. Bush was an alcoholic, but his wife wasn't.

Ford was a star for the University of Michigan football team. Bush was a cheerleader.

Ford was a uniter. Bush is a divider.


Neither were elected President.
