PRATT, HAMMOND: Republican Anti-Gunners Are Repeating Bush’s ‘Read My Lips’ Mistake

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush committed one of the greatest betrayals in modern political history. He backtracked on his “Read my lips, no new taxes” pledge, and he got hammered in the next election for his betrayal. He lost.

Rush Limbaugh has warned that Republicans are making the same “Read my lips” mistake by pursuing a gun control compromise with Democrats. 

He pointed out that Bush “never recovered from [his broken promise on taxes] and it’s probably one of the key reasons he did not get reelected in 1992. Same kind of potential pitfall is out there again awaiting Trump [on gun control].”

Now that President Trump and the congressional GOP leadership are beginning to talk favorably about gun control, it’s important to remember some important history.
