While CNN’s John Avlon thinks that the words of President George W. Bush’s eulogy for his father were exclusively for memorializing his dad and not about making veiled digs at the current president, he believes the other eulogies were not quite as innocent.
“The clips that we just played from (Jon) Meacham and (Brian) Mulroney were not an accident, that was an implicit dis to the current president,” he said. “And it’s because of the contrast between the two men and you make choices when you write speeches.”
