Fake Praise for GHWB: Where Were
Media When He Needed Them?

Townhall, by Larry Elder

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/6/2018 7:41:01 AM

As with the passing of former President Ronald Reagan, the media are in full praise mode following the death of former President George Herbert Walker Bush. Where were they when the one-term President needed them? In Reagan´s case, even his haters grudgingly acknowledged the overall success of his presidency. As for Bush 41, the media´s praise of Bush´s "grace" and "class" serves to indirectly to attack President Donald Trump by showing the contrast between the two Republicans´ styles and characters. But what did much of the liberal media think and say about Bush at the time? When Bush announced his

They hated and ridiculed him, as one would expect. They used the "read my lips" statement relentlessly after smooth-talking him into conceding on a tax increase. Remember the song lyrics, "kinder and gentler machine gun hand?" They drove the Bush/Quayle thing into the ground. Hypocrites, all. Then they elected a communist, draft-dodging, bicycle seat sniffing, trailer park troll and he was the best thing that ever happened to America.

Just another example of how the left manufactures situational positions to appear as values. GHWB was a real man but without the outward swagger we have seen vilified as toxic masculinity. If they had any core values he´d have been their guy as far as masculinity goes. But no they called him a wimp.

As for my position on the President: He spoke words that chill me to this day, helped me awaken to something bigger than I had ever envisioned threatening our country; "New World Order."

And the tax betrayal, no forgiveness. Increasing taxes when we know the net effect will be to reduce collections is pure theft, a seizure of freedom, an incremental step away from individual liberty and toward totalitarianism.

As for my position on the man, I have a lasting great respect for him.

The left has gotten worst since GHWB was president. The media and the demosluts are about equal to what Russian Pravda and the Russian government was back in the 60´s and 70´s. The media will want a 42 gun salute for Obozo and a month worth of public mourning.

The media has no shame. They are in it for the buzz and the viewership. They are vultures.

And none of this should be a surprise. We KNOW them.

The Bushes betrayed us in the end. To me their goal, the family´s goal, turned into the NWO and then loved up on the Clintons going as far to say W. Bush voted for Hillary and GHWB didn´t vote. All of this because Jeb couldn´t purchase the win in the primaries against the crude, boorish, racist Donald Trump who will proved to be the best we´ve had for the dark hard times Obama left.
Fake praise and I´m not moved by the Bush family any more.

A trio of senators who have been critical of leaks of classified information are asking a federal judge to spare a former aide from prison time after he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with reporters. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., vice chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., and former chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., have asked for leniency for the committee’s former security director, James Wolfe, who in October admitted he had made false statements to investigators “concerning whether he had provided unclassified, but not otherwise publicly available, information to reporters.”“Jim has already lost much through

UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday told Conservative Party lawmakers that she won’t run in the next general election — a stunning development as she faced a no-confidence vote in Parliament, Reuters reported. May also vowed to win the vote triggered by angry Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party on Wednesday, saying her ouster would jeopardize Britain’s divorce from the European Union. Less than four months before the UK is due to leave on March 29, Brexit is in chaos, with options ranging from a potentially disorderly no-deal departure to another referendum that could reverse the whole thing.

Tucker — who criticizes Trump when he disagrees with him — gave props to the president for standing firm on the need for Congress to fund a border wall and for taking responsibility for a government shutdown if the wall is not properly financed.“Trump

As media institutions stumble into the tar pit of irrelevancy, they tend to do two things: stage temper tantrums and then lose themselves in the media echo chamber.CNN is a great example of the former. The left-wing cable channel has not broken a consequential story (that wasn’t later exposed as fake news) all year, its ratings are abysmal, and its reputation throughout the country is, to say the least, in tatters. To hold on to some kind of audience, CNN is now a 24/7 circus parade of outrage and anger where the self-righteous spew divisive hate and engage in antics

In California´s never-ending quest to tax everything, there are new reports that the liberal state may soon levy a tax on text messages. California state regulators are working on a plan to charge cell phone users a fee for text messaging, all in the name of collecting taxpayer money to pay for programs to make phone service cheaper to low-income residents, the San Jose Mercury News reported. No one yet knows how much cell phone users would be charged, but the News says the fee would "likely would be billed as a flat surcharge per customer — one of those

Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump.

One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday.

In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
