“Read my lips: no new taxes.”
That pledge was the centerpiece of Bush’s acceptance address, written by speechwriter Peggy Noonan, for his party’s nomination at the 1988 Republican National Convention.
What will President Trump’s political epitaph be?
“Read My Lips: I’ll Build The Wall.”
Amid the slush of sentimentality over the death of George H. Bush, nobody in media made mention of where “W” (shrub Jr.) had been when he bid farewell to his father.
Looks like the final words spoken by former President #GeorgeWBush to his father, former President #GeorgeHWBush, were on SPEAKERPHONE. "W" wasn't even present for his dad's passing, which was no sudden event. https://t.co/TW7AsPxXbs

The State, remember, is not The People. The interests the dead pursued, for the most, were not those of ordinary America.
