Gerald Ford, RIP

Posted: 27 Dec 2006 in Politics

RIP Gerald Ford.

Statement from Betty Ford: “My family joins me in sharing the difficult
news that Gerald Ford, our beloved husband, father, and grandfather,
has passed away…”

President Ford was 93. Here’s his official White House bio. Here’s the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum page.

A CNN commentator says President Ford will be buried at the Ford
library and museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan after funeral/memorial
services in California, D.C., and lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda.

Here’s President Bush’s statement.

Paul Mirengoff:
“My favorite Ford moment came in his 1975 state of the union address
when he declared, “the state of the union is not good.” Do you think
we’ll ever hear another president make a statement like that when his
party has controlled the White House for an extended period?”
