CAIRCO Note: Many good things have been said about former President George H.W. Bush. Here, Michelle Malkin discusses some crucial aspects of his presidency. 

Michelle Malkin described former President George H. W. Bush’s legacy as an impoverishment of American workers and growing of the “deep state,” offering her remarks in a Monday interview with Breitbart Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight....

Malkin continued, “The lesson of the Bush regime and the Bush dynasty is something that impoverishes the American worker. It grows the deep state at the expense of small businesses and liberty...

Malkin added, “The elitism of the Bush wing of the [Republican] party is what Trump defeated, and I think [Donald Trump] has to remember that’s why he’s in the office — because of the adamant rejection of that attitude and those policies.

This, of course, was the absolute opposite of the line that the Bushies were feeding gullible Conservatism Inc. ideologues...
