We need more of George H. W. Bush's spirit in this country today

We need more of George H. W. Bush's spirit in this country today President George H.W. Bush embodied a value that seems to be vanishing from our nation: public service, writes Julian Zelizer. He was part of a generation in American politics when working for the government was a virtue, not a vice. His career was remarkable. After serving in World War II and later making millions in the oil business, Bush entered the rough world of politics in 1966 when Texas voters elected him to the US House of Representatives.

Dana Tyrone Rohrabacher (/ˈrɔːrəˌbɑːkər/; born June 21, 1947) is a former American politician, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1989 to 2019.

Now, Rohrabacher — who worked in the Reagan administration before winning his first House race in 1989 — says his focus is turning to something he's been doing for years: penning scripts.

"People forget I was a writer by trade," he told the entertainment industry publication. "I was not Ronald Reagan's best speech writer — but I was his fastest. That's my style. Work your damndest to file on time, then tinker with it until it's perfect."

None of the current projects he's working on tackle politics or life in Washington, says Rohrabacher, who was knocked ahead of the election for his perceived close ties to Russia. Instead, the congressman describes a "comedy" he's writing about a team of robbers who make their way into Fort Knox before realizing there's no gold there.

He also explains another script: "I'm a 71-year-old surfer, so I have some treatments involving surfing. I have real-life stories about attending pop festivals with Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Grace Slick. Two weeks later, I was a teenager fighting Communists in Vietnam."

Losing his reelection bid, Rohrabacher insists, made him feel "liberated."

"I can communicate with a lot of people via the film industry," he says.

Two of his screenplays have already caught the eyes of some entertainment bigwigs, according to Rohrabacher.

"I can't name them, but they're serious people and it looks positive," he says. "But, of course, there's no deal until the contract is signed and the check clears."
