Listen: George H W Bush, President And Obama discussed on Rush Limbaugh
"You're listening to Rush's week in review in. Oh, man. I'm watching all of this praise for George H W Bush. Unbelievable. I can't help. But wonder where was all this when he was president all of this all this admiration all of this phrase, all of this devotion. What a great guy. What are you meant disability? Where was all this because I'm telling you it wasn't there. And I'm going to have more audio sound bites today as the program unfolds demonstrated they never covered this man this way when he was alive. They never covered this man this way when he was president of the United States. And we know what they did do we saw. Literally tried to destroy the presidency of George W Bush just like they're trying to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump. They even came up with a false rumor, they said that George H W Bush had an affair with one of his secretary. Remember this? It was totally untrue. It was during the campaign. It was a massive smear. And it was right there in the drive by media. And this is one of the few times that I saw the Bush family rise up in indignation to stop and oppose this. Bush was running for office. There was none of this. There was none of this respect. There was none of this admiration. There was none of this. Oh my God. What a great guy what he means four civility. They never talked about the contributions to civility that George H W Bush made while he was I'm not kidding, folks. Where was all this? If this man was this great on reflection. Then why wasn't he covered this way? The reason he's being covered this way. Now is because he's gone. That's what you have to do to get respected and to be revered by the drive by media leave. However, you do it. Once you're no longer a factor. That's when we'll praise the hilt out of you. On one hand. She would miss not to admit this on one hand. It's it's it's nice to see. But on the other hand. It's so phony. And it so I'm the president that I can't help but make. The observation. I mean, the drive by media still turning out articles. That'd be loaned the difference between the golden age of civility under George H W Bush compared to the nightmare. They claim we're suddenly experiencing under Trump. Wait a minute. Are you telling me that they're saying the last time we had any kind of civility was back during George H W Bush. What about Obama I thought Obama was the architect they loved Obama? They didn't think Obama was divisive. They covered Obama the way they're covering George W Bush. But somehow we have to go all the way back to Bush defined when Washington was civil. What did Bush do that they liked? He lost in nineteen ninety two. And even Paul Ryan yesterday. During the ceremony is in the capitol rotunda. The former president is lying in St Paul Ryan said what he learned. Did you hear this? What you learned from George Bush was how Lewis. Let me I've got the audio sound bite here, and I've got him separated in the stack. Let me see if I can find this here. Grab grab sound bite. Number sixteen. This is how the Washington establishment likes. They're Republicans this this if you're a Republican if you're going to Washington, this could be a guiding lesson for you. He was the first president I had the chance to vote for him. And he was the first president to teach."
