They (Democrats) didn’t treat Bush this way when he was president, like they’re trying to act like they did not. They gave him grief for the way he lived his life, they gave him grief for the way he was born, they gave him grief for driving around speedboats. They gave him grief for the Gulf War for kicking Saddam out of Kuwait. “No blood for oil.” They said that was what Bush was doing was not worth the loss of American lives.
The Democrat Party was joining with environmentalist wackos on this, and saying that Bush had a secret deal to prosper and benefit because Bush was in the oil business and so everything he was doing, even losing American lives, was so he could profit personally. Everything they continue to do today that they’re doing with Trump and this Russia collusion, they tried to do with Bush during the Gulf War I with his ties to oil. It’s really frustrating to watch this stuff, if you have a memory and remember the way he was treated when he was president. – Rush Limbaugh 12/3/18
FoxNews.com reports that
“The View” star Joy Behar erupted when colleague Meghan McCain attempted to keep the show focused on honoring the late President George H.W. Bush, instead of Behar’s favorite punching bag, President Trump.
The show opened with a tribute to Bush and co-host Whoopi Goldberg laughed as she compared him to the current president — perhaps setting the tone for the segment. Many members of the mainstream media have used Bush’s death as an excuse to bash President Trump.
Behar was no exception when discussing Bush’s legacy, which includes a key environmental statute.
“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that [Bush] did and Obama did,” Behar said. “If I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect.”
McCain then interrupted, asking if they could focus on Bush, who died at age 94 on Friday.
“I don’t want to talk about Trump… we’re honoring a great president,” McCain said.
“Excuse me,” Behar snapped back. “Excuse me a second… I want to talk about the differences.”
McCain then said she wasn’t interested in Behar’s one-issue voter feelings when “a president just passed.”
Behar responded, “I don’t care what you’re interested in, I’m talking.”
The panel then erupted into a shouting match.
“I don’t care what you’re interested in, either,” McCain shouted before Goldberg quickly tossed it to a commercial break. Behar and McCain appeared to continue the feud as the camera pulled back prior to the commercial. The duo appeared to have moved on when the show return from the break.
Behar has rejuvenated her career with over-the-top anti-Trump rhetoric and last week she declared that it would be “a good day for Donald Trump to resign.” She recently apologized after saying “God forbid” Trump lives another 20 years and has come under fire for mocking Vice President Pence’s Christian faith.
Meanwhile, McCain isn’t exactly a fan of Trump herself, as the president and her father, late Sen. John McCain, had an ongoing feud until he died earlier this year. McCain, along with Abby Huntsman, offer conservative voices to the ABC News daytime chatfest.
Bush’s funeral service will be held Thursday at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.
This is not the first time that the death of a political figure has been turned into the opportunity for a political rally by the Democrats.
Back in October of 2002, Minnesota Democrats used the memorial service for Democrat Senator Paul Wellstone as a political rally and an opportunity to push Walter “Fritz” Mondale as his successor.
Of course, back then, the entire nation was appalled by the Democrats’ boorish behavior and lack of decorum.
My…my…look at how far we’ve come…in the wrong direction.
The “smartest people in the room” are not even blinking an eye to their own blatant hypocrisy.
They could not stand George H.W. Bush when he was our 41st President.
Now, they want to place him on a pedestal as every available Liberal Talking Head, anchors and pundits included, laud his “bipartisanship” with every other word that they speak, using a professional Politician as a measuring stick of how to be a President in comparison to President Donald J. Trump, who has never claimed to be a politician.
Every American is entitled to their own political opinions. However, the old saying that there is a time and a place for everything still holds true.
Those overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome, who are attacking Trump 24/7 by lauding Bush 41in tones in which they never referred to him with when he was still here to hear them, are showing as much grace and decorum as the sketch from “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour” where Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Ron White, and Larry The Cable Guy were talking about a relative who opened up a can of beer in the middle of a funeral and how it was not a good idea to show up drunk to a funeral. At one point, the guys were looking down into a make-believe coffin, talking about the deceased, when one of them remarked, “Wait. That ain’t Mama!”
But, I digress…
As far as “Joy-less” Behar is concerned…well…allow me to defer to Mr. Robert James Ritchie, better known as “Kid Rock”…
“We can disagree and still be cordial with one another and just talk about things without going for each others throats and protesting everything.”
“God forbid you say something a little bit wrong you’re racist, homophobic, Islamophobic… people need to calm down, a get a little less politically correct, and, I would say love everybody.”
“Except I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch, everybody but that.”
About that last sentence, while I would not advocate the verb, I totally agree with his definition of the subject.
Like the rest of the Far Left Democratic Party, including the Show Biz Branches in Hollywierd and New Yawk, Joy Behar is still throwing a temper tantrum over the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
She lives under the mistaken impression that those of us who voted for the President give a hoot ‘n holler as to her opinions of him.
What the deaths of Senator John McCain and Former President George H.W. Bush have showed to us average Americans who live between the coasts is that our perception of the Washington Establishment and the Far left Democrats sharing the common bond of Trump Derangement Syndrome has proven to be right on the money.
For those individuals to show their hatred for the President of the United States of America at such solemn occasions as the deaths of McCain and Bush 41 is unseemly…but sadly predictable.
They still don’t get it.
Or, as we say in the South,
“Well, bless their hearts.”
