The Character Of A Good President
Commentary: This an older story, but it is worth retelling, because it highlights the character of a Christian. Former President Bush after learning of the massacre at Foot Hood visited the victims hospital bedsides in private. No cameras, no press, no fanfare. In fairness, others have reported that the Obama White House asked Bush to leave, but a Bush spokesperson said that did not happen. However, the visit does illustrate that good character is not about politics, but who a person is at his or her core. Bush illustrated the character of Christ, and statesmanship of a President.

Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent “considerable time” consoling those who were wounded in Thursday’s shooting spree, Fox News has learned.
The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.
The couple was described as “deeply concerned” about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38.
The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.
