KENNEBUNKPORT, ME – There’s ordinary folks, and then you have George Herbert Walker Bush. The 41st U.S. President jumped out of a helicopter in Maine to celebrate his 90th birthday and show the world how to blow out a candle like a boss.

President Bush, Sr. became an oil tycoon at age 40. He was a congressman, ambassador, chief of the CIA, Vice President, the President who witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the first U.S. President to become the father of another U.S. President since John Adams in 1825. So, there are good reasons for a toast.

On January of 2013, President Bush was released from the hospital in Houston after seven weeks of treatment for bronchitis, while he was already suffering from a form of Parkinson’s disease. Now he’s skydiving one more time. What a recovery, my goodness!  Even more so considering that a Dallas radio station falsely reported last year that he was dead.

So, congratulations Mr. President. And read my lips: Happy Birthday!
