Wyatt Earp died on this day in 1929 in Los Angeles. He was 80 years old. To date, his funeral is still one of the largest in the history of Hollywood. During the funeral, early movie star Tom Mix wept.
The entire course of his life was determined by the events that occurred around 2:30 in the afternoon of October 26, 1881. A once promising political career went down in flames. His dreams were destroyed.
Wyatt Earp had the courage to stand up to the forces of evil – and do what was right. It wasn’t popular, but it was right.
Years after his death, Wyatt Earp is still denigrated by his critics, most of them liberal Democrats. You see, Wyatt Earp was a Republican. He loved baseball. He loved his country. And his loved Christ. I think he would be honored to have a great man like George W. Bush compared to him.
There is no other character in American History more like Wyatt Earp. Flawed, and to some a total failure, George W. Bush loves his country. He loves freedom. He loves baseball. And – he loves Christ.
He has sacrificed his reputation to do what was right, to keep us safe, and to take out the forces of evil, no matter how powerful they are.
May God Bless George W. Bush.
