4:08 pm
back to you, jon. jon: jennifer, thank you. joining me now, serve as deputy and acting attorney general under president george hw bush. george, your thoughts tonight as we remember the president 41. >> paul, my thoughts about president bush 41 are tinged with sadness today of course. it's great to have an opportunity to express condolences to the bush family. but when i think back on serving in the justice department when he was president, i think the thing that comes across to me is how much he cared on a very personal level about what crime at the time was doing to america. he put it into the 1992 state of the union address and i had the privilege of sitting in the oval office and breathing him on a program that we wanted to start, seeking his approval for, which we did.
4:09 pm
it started a seachange and how federal resources were used to fight violent crime and particularly in our inter- cities. that program continues to this day. it was continued in the clinton administration through the second bush and ministration, obama in ministration and in the trump administration today. the people who is designed to benefit where people that in the inner cities of the united states and president in that discussion in the oval office specifically asked about that. jon: it was such a time of turmoil. the breakup of the soviet union and ending of the cold war and the us emerged as the lone superpower and of course, invasion of iraq in response to saddam hussein's kuwait invasion and are you sometimes when you look back at what took place during those four years, are you surprised that the world changed so profoundly?
4:10 pm
>> it was a time of profound change and if we look back at what the president had to say about that at the time he recognized that and moved not just with it but ahead of it. there were so many things that he did that were looking around the corner and over the horizon into what american needed to do next to continue its leadership but more than anything i think what defines the bush presidency apart from policies and a brave decision to make sure that what had happened with iraq invading kuwait were not stand, as he put it. i think more than anything with this out is what an honorable man he was. i think history will recognize that he was one of the most honorable men to serve in the office of president of the united states. jon: i recall being in saudi arabia and covering the first gulf war when i read that the
4:11 pm
governor of arkansas had announced he was going to run against president bush as he was attending his second term and at the time the president was enjoying popularity rating near 90%. i thought this guy bill clinton is crazy. but the economy faltered and that, in large part, is what led to his being a single term. >> the people that are experts in politics, i think, will agree with you on that, jon. it was the economy and the state of the economy and turning direction that undercut all the compliments of his ministration and that was -- look, let's face it. that was a sad occasion for the president and those who served in. i will never forget standing on the south lawn of the white house with many other people
4:12 pm
serving in the in ministration when the president and mrs. bush came back from texas right after the election and there were tears streaming down mrs. bush's face. but the president pasted in the way he dealt with governor clinton in both the transition and "after words" i think again is an example of how it ought to be done. jon: we all knew once barbara bush passed away earlier this year that her husband would be joining her, not long after. talk a little bit about the relationship you saw between them. >> tremendous relationship between them. i think if you look at the way the entire bush family looked at his bush she was a leavening in those. no one got too big for their britches in the family, including the president of the united states. she was also a plane speaker and spoke her mind in an appropriate way. i think people, american people,
4:13 pm
and indeed, people across the world, but denies she was a source of strength to the bush 41 presidency. jon: as though world mourns the passing looks back on what he published not only in his four years as president but tremendous record of public service after that how do you think history will remember this man? >> they will remember him as an american statesman of the highest order. let's consider that by the time he became vice president he was already a towering presence among american statesman. his service as vice president and then president only added to that. that combined with his commitment to the people -- this was a person who was born to privilege but shunned it to go to west texas and start an oil company. as you mentioned earlier in the
4:14 pm
show, he went off to war at a very young age. my own dad also went to the south pacific the year he got out of school and served in the navy there. i've always had a particular admiration for a president who came from circumstances where he did not need to do that but volunteered it. not only is he a statement but an american hero. jon: more on his military service right now. george who served as equity secretary of state under president bush, thank you. >> thank you. jon: i'm sorry, i gave you a bit of a promotion. >> they did not quite get that far but jim baker was taking care of that.
