Michael Gerson Death: A Washington Post obituary says that Michael Gerson, a former speechwriter for former President George W. Bush and a Washington Post columnist who wrote about conservative politics and religion for more than 20 years, died Thursday at a hospital in Washington.
How Did He Die? Reality Behind His Death!
Gerson was 58 years old when he died, and complications from his cancer led to his death. Gerson is an evangelical Christian and a writer. In 1999, he joined the Bush campaign and helped Bush write speeches that had a lot to do with religion and morality.
The Post says that Gerson was close with Bush, who was also a religious person. Bush said in a statement on Thursday that he was “heartbroken” when he heard about Gerson’s death. Bush said, “He was a great writer, and I was lucky to have him as my chief speechwriter and a trusted advisor for a long time.”
“His big heart made his smart mind even better. So, Mike used the power of the pen to do more than just write about good policy. Gerson helped Bush write famous and powerful speeches after a number of events happened during his time in office.
There were also more peaceful times. In Bush’s first inaugural speech, Gerson talked about democracy as a “seed in the wind” that is growing in many countries. He also wrote the famous Bush campaign line about ending “the soft bigotry of low expectations” in the education of minority and low-income students. Bush said this in a speech.

After the 9/11 attacks, Bush used Gerson’s writing in a number of his speeches as people tried to deal with the tragedy.
On September 14, 2001, Bush said, “Three days after these events, Americans don’t yet have the distance of history.” “But our duty to history is already clear: we need to stop these attacks and get rid of evil in the world.”
In his speech on September 14, Bush also tried to comfort Americans by saying, “Grief, tragedy, and hatred are only for a time.” This was typical of Gerson’s moral and religious views.
Bush said, “Goodness, remembering, and love have no end.” “All who die and all who mourn are held by the Lord of life.” But Gerson also pushed the Bush administration to invade Iraq in 2003 based on false claims that the Middle Eastern country had weapons that could kill a lot of people.

The Post says Gerson never said he was sorry for pushing the U.S. to invade Iraq. In a memoir he wrote in 2007, he said it was important for the U.S. to fight terrorism. Gerson started writing for the Post in 2007 and wrote columns twice a week, some of which were negative about former Presidents Obama and Trump.
Gerson was born on May 15, 1964, in Belmar, New Jersey. Gerson wrote more than just columns. He also wrote several books.
