James Baker pays tribute to his longtime friend

James Baker III, one of President George H.W. Bush’s closest friends for 60 years, said he’ll forever remember Bush as a friend and role model. Baker began his eulogy by apologizing to his long-time friend for bragging about his accomplishments in his 94 years.

Baker called Bush one of the nation’s finest president and “beyond any doubt the nation’s best one-term president.”

Although Bush wasn’t considered a skilled speaker, Baker said, Bush’s deeds were eloquent and that he “demonstrated their elegance by carving them into the hard granite of history.”

Baker said Bush believed “humility toward, and not humiliation, of a fallen adversary was the very best path to peace and reconciliation.”

Baker said that one of the things Bush liked most about him was that Baker always told Bush what he thought, even when Bush didn't want to hear it. Baker recalled he and Bush having spirited conversations, and when Bush thought the conversation was over, he would tell Baker, "Baker, if you're so smart, why am I president and you're not?" Baker recalled.

Baker ended by saying, "We rejoice, Mr. President, knowing that you are safely tucked in now ... with God's loving arms around you, because our glory, George, is to have had you as President and such a friend."

Astros Owner Jim Crane said Bush was instrumental in helping the Astros win Game 5 of the 2017 World Series. It was a back-and-forth affair with the Los Angeles Dodgers that the Astros ultimately won, 13-12, in extra innings.

"He helped us when that fifth game, he threw out that first pitch," Crane said.
