Full title: NYT Editorials About Deaths of Reagan, Bush Called Them Fortunate in Foreign Policy, Slammed Current Republican Presidents
The New York Times editorials about the last two elected Republican presidents to die, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, have strong similarities, calling them both fortunate in their foreign policy victories, comparing them positively to the current GOP office-holders, and bemoaning the negative state of politics under the current commanders in chief.
Reagan, the 40th president, died in 2004 at the age of 93, and Bush, his vice-president who succeeded him as the 41st president, died Friday at the age of 94. The Times in 2004 took the occasion of his death to mourn the George W. Bush administration's policies and "decade of political mean-spiritedness" while praising Reagan's "collegiality and good manners."

When George H. W. Bush died the NYT praised him and used it to attack president Trump.
The NYT wrote, "it is difficult not to take note of the profound differences between the 41st president of the United States and the current occupant of the White House, Donald Trump," it wrote. "Beyond a desire to be president Mr. Bush was more competitive and ambitious than his self-effacing personality sometimes suggested there is almost nothing in common: the one gracious and modest, the other rude and vain; the one prudent, the other brash; the one steady, the other unmoored."
Was the NYT one of the newspaper that had good things to say about Hitler?
NYT loved them some Stalin.
Maybe we should appreciate the fact that the lamestreamers were not in charge of Bush’s funeral and did not turn it into a huge political crapfest.
I guess the only good republican is a dead republican.
Gee, must have missed it!
