Skip to comments.Brokaw: George H.W. 'Most Underrated Modern President Of Our Time'
Posted on 03/07/2012 5:22:52 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Tom Brokaw is the man that our Brent Bozell recently described as having "used NBC and [his] anchor chair as a platform to promote Democratic agendas and delight in Republican setbacks for more than 20 years." But every once in awhile, perhaps out of Greatest Generation nostalgia, Brokaw has something kind to say about a Republican.
As was the case on Morning Joe today, when, after reciting a list of the 41st president's accomplishments, said that George H.W. Bush was "the most underrated modern president of our time."

Flying pig ping to Today show list.
Expert opinion from the most over-rated news reader of our time.
So Brokaw says the opposite of the ideas he advocated when Bush was president.
As always, liberals have denied themselves access to rational discussion. What was true yesterday is false today, because they have been fooled into believing the self-defeating ideology of relativism.
Tom Brokaw-—the most OVERrated newsman of our time.....
“I’m Tom Bwokaw, NBC Nightly news.”
Thanks, Tom, you’re a real mensch.
A round about way of saying Obama is the most over-rated POTUS ever.
Yea, o against his “No NEW TAXES” pledge was an act of pure courage in the eyes of liberals. Not that they would ever vote for him, but he “took a courageous stand” in stabbing the country in the back.
Brokaw is a flaming MORON, and George H.W. (and the Mrs.) have done an excellent job of showing us who they REALLY are since W. has left office.
Papa Bush may be a nice guy but he's worse than a liberal because you never know what kind of 'feel good' stance he's going to take on REAL (albeit conservative) issues.
You are right, and I hope Freepers don’t fall for this. Whenever the political times get hairy, the liberals always suddenly discover a new found love for loser Republicans.
You’ll see all kinds of liberal love this cycle for folks like Dole, McCain, Snowe, Collins, both Bushes. Why, these “nice” under rated Republicans will no doubt even come on the air and join the libs in decrying today’s Republicans. You watch. DONT FALL FOR THIS .
Brokaw thinks GHWB underrated because he is not properly credited with bringing us the presidency of Bill Clinton.
If it hadn’t been for the “little hand grenade with a bad haircut” (Perot), Clinton would never have been president.
I have an uncle who is the spitting image of Tom Brokaw (a fact which he openly laments)
When liberals praise former Republican presidents they are just trying to build cover and credibility for when they blast current Republicans. I see that with Reagan all the time. People who hated Reagan when he was president say things like, “what can’t so and so be more like Reagan was?”
HW Bush allowed himself to be Rickrolled by Democrats for 4 years, of course the left thinks of it fondly.
If Papa Bush hadn’t been such a globalist stooge, Perot probably wouldn’t have run.
I’ve come to learn that newsreaders generally have the brains and general intelligence of squirrels. And then they start to believe their own spew. I’m in better company here at FreeRepublic
Yadda yadda yadda, I remember all of the lefties that praised Reagan when he died, and commented on how Reagan wouldn’t support today’s GOP. Meanwhile, when he was in the WH they were just as nasty to him as they were to any GOP President, before or since.
Yep, they all loved Bob Dole after Clinton crushed him.
Bush was toast, even without Perot.
Gulf War I - Bush should have gone all the way to Baghdad when he had the chance, knocked down every Gov’t building, killed every Revolutionary Guard unit that was surrounded, declared the Kurds independent - and then left, except for Iraq’s southern oil fields, which should have been annexed and operated in Trust by the United States.
I can’t imagine that scenario causing any more problems than the way things actually did play out over the next 20 years.
So, after years of verbal abuse, we’re suddenly supposed to believe GHWB was the ideal President—I think not. If you think GHWB was ideal, you’ll love Romney, if he makes it.
Perot ran because he had a long standing feud with Bush that went back many decades and he succeeded in electing Clinton.
tom loves him some President “One World Order” Bush... surprise, surprise.
Bush name = liberal quisling. Bushes suck.
I was unaware of that, I stand corrected.
Frankly I can’t believe Newsbusters has a dolt that fell for this tripe. Very disappointing. Maybe Noel Shepperd will can the guy.
This is just a liberal tactic to appear to be fair and balanced.
If it hadnt been for the little hand grenade with a bad haircut (Perot), Clinton would never have been president.
READ MY LIPS BUSH.
One of the worst Presidents in history.
Lest anyone forget, George H W was the father of the “Earned Income Tax Credit”, where people who do not pay taxes get a “tax refund”.
LOL. Now Broken Jaw likes GHWB. Right.
FWIW, during the 2000 election, Brokaw did call out an Algore lie about the gun control act of ‘68 on national news.
