Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today issued the following statement.

“President George H.W. Bush embodied a bygone American era of civility, respect and bipartisanship,” Rep. Cooper said. “The leader of a patriotic family, he was a war hero, CIA director, honorable commander-in-chief, and the proud father of a fellow President and a governor. No President is perfect, but it’s certain we’ve lost a national hero. President Bush and his beloved Barbara are deeply missed.”
