Pres. Bush stays classy in spite of Hannity

November 17, 2014 by


The former President held his ground and refused to criticize Pres. Obama on Hannity’s Fox News program last night. The host, who is on our Shameful list, also asked a question on a previous program seeking a negative reaction to the President’s policies. We’ve written enough about Hannity, who is not a journalist. (Search Hannity […]

A misguided charge of plagiarism

January 29, 2014 by


A speechwriter for President George W. Bush claims President Obama used parts of Bush’s 2007 State of the Union speech in his address to the nation last night. But an examination of Pres. Bush’s transcript reveals no clauses were lifted and used by Pres. Obama. Speaking to Megyn Kelly of Fox News, Mark Thiessen read […]

Limbaugh praises Pres. Bush for qualities the broadcaster lacks

December 17, 2013 by


A charter member of our Shameful list continued his bizarre comments today. We’re talking about conservative Rush Limbaugh, the syndicated radio host, who has the largest listener audience, a sad testimonial to the

Good for George W. Bush

August 30, 2013 by


The former President seems from outward appearances to be enjoying his retirement. Rarely, he’ll grant an interview. Today he talked to Fox News and the reporter tried to get Mr. Bush to comment on what to do in Syria.

Congress plays nicely. Really

July 17, 2013 by


If Congress c could get along the way former presidents do, what a wonderful world it would be. (Sorry. Somehow that phrase just seemed to fit.)  It was brief, but when two Presidents met at 16 Pennsylvania Ave. yesterday, harmony prevailed. Here’s how the Associated Press reported it:

Previous post, radio, this one, TV, Ed Schultz’s arguments still have flaws

September 3, 2012 by


On his MSNBC program tonight, Schultz also was a bit off the mark. Schultz then played a video clip of Pres. George W. Bush talking in September of 2008 about the worsening financial situation:  “Major financial institutions have teetered on the edge of collapse and some have failed. As uncertainty has grown, many banks have […]

Liberal host insults Republican candidates

January 3, 2012 by


So we ask why some politicians and broadcasters can’t talk about the opposition truthfully and respectfully. And the answer we have to give is that, in the case of the government folks, they have no shame and don’t understand the terrible example they set for young people, and everyone for that matter. As for the […]

Today’s embarrassing political statements by Wasserman Schultz, Perino, Bashir, Gingrich, Papantonio, Eric Bolling

December 9, 2011 by


The surprising thing is that many politicians and broadcasters seem not at all bothered by their exaggerations and falsehoods. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida repeated David Axelrod’s phrase (don’t know if he was the first) about Newt Gingrich, calling him “the godfather of gridlock,” claiming that Gingrich stifled Democrats’ attempts to […]
