Grover Norquist, the “tax pledge” guy, called former president George H.W. Bush a liar this morning on This Week. “When George Herbert Walker Bush ran for president, he promised the American people he wouldn’t raise their taxes,” said Norquist. “He lied to them. He broke his commitment to them and they threw him out of office four years later.” For some history here, Bush famously said “read my lips – no new taxes” during his run for president in 1988.
