George W. Bush
It’s been a long time since the executives at CBS News have had something to cheer about in the ratings, and that trend continues despite the replacement of the previous Evening News anchor Jeff Glor with female host Norah O’Donnell. In addition, the network is paying O’Donnell at least $7 million per year, much more than the $2 million Glor received during the 18 months he sat in the anchor chair.
On Thursday, the ladies of The View weighed in on Hollywood’s reaction to liberal comedian Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush sitting next to each other at a Dallas Cowboys game. While some of the co-hosts acknowledged that they thought it was important to have friends on both sides of the political aisle, co-host Sunny Hostin understood why some liberal celebrities were “put off” by a liberal lesbian having a friendship with a Republican President who dared to support traditional marriage.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute has published a new paper, “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.” Keep in mind that many of the grossly wrong environmentalist predictions were made by respected scientists and government officials. My question for you is: If you were around at the time, how many government restrictions and taxes would you have urged to avoid the predicted calamity?
In a thought-provoking conclusion to Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell seemed inspired by the friendship between former Republican President George W. Bush and liberal comedian Ellen DeGeneres, and encouraged viewers to seek out people of a different political opinion and befriend them.
Late last week, after word came that the former ambassador to Iraq, Joe Wilson, had passed away, MSNBC repeated some of the misinformation that journalists and other liberals pushed during the George W. Bush era as anchors Joy Reid and Katy Tur lauded Wilson for disputing President Bush's claims that Saddam Hussein had tried to acquire uranium in Africa before the invasion of Iraq.
While Republicans were celebrating victories in both North Carolina special elections on Tuesday evening, the host of The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell was yet again slamming President Trump. As always, the MSNBC host viewed the topic through an anti-Trump lens since after leaving the administration, Bolton “could write and deliver” the “most explosive Trump book ever” if he finishes it before the 2020 presidential election.
Former George W. Bush's Bullhorn Speech is one of the most defining and iconic moments in American history, the only thing that compares to it is Franklin Roosevelt's Day of Infamy speech. Unfortunately, CNN Newsroom co-host Poppy Harlow tried to use the sense of national unity in the circumstances of Bush's speech on the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to push gun control.
It was another par for the course night of nonsense on Hardball Tuesday, featuring MSNBC host Chris Matthews waxing-poetic about past presidents providing leadership in challenging times compared to Donald Trump. His panelists then suggested his rhetoric led to the death of Latinos in El Paso that he truly doesn’t care about.
There were times when watching the new Netflix teen fantasy series The Order I genuinely wondered if they were intending for the show to sound satirical. In the first half of the first episode, viewers were treated to a reference to "one percenter parasites," new students at Belgrave College, where the show takes place, were directed to "male, female, and non-binary bathrooms" and given "how not to rape" pamphlets, and former president George W. Bush was compared to Mussolini. Unfortunately, I think this is the state of young adult content in 2019.
In a stunning example of the liberal media’s hypocrisy, they showed off their ballet skills on Wednesday when they collectively pivoted from bashing President Trump for not spending Christmas with U.S. troops to bashing him for not visiting them sooner after he made a surprise trip to Al Asad Airbase in Iraq. During their evening news broadcasts, both CBS and NBC brought up criticism of the President for taking two years to travel to a war zone to visit troops.
Recently, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas struck down the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a ObamaCare) on the grounds that since the law’s “tax” was currently at zero it was now unconstitutional. Fresh from whining about it on Sunday Today, moderator Chuck Todd grilled Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during Meet the Press because he and other Democrats confirmed the Judge after President George W. Bush nominated him back in 2007.
Dan Rather, the longtime CBS anchor keeps showing he has no self-awareness, whatsoever. The veteran, disgraced journalist took to Twitter during George H.W. Bush’s funeral Wednesday to offer his thoughts, dripping with condescension for our current president, and completely obtuse in light of his own behavior towards both Bushes when they were in office.
