    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Though reviled by many Republicans for agreeing to a deficit-reduction plan that raised taxes, many economists believe that Bush saved Reagan's legacy by partially solving such problems as the savings and loan bankruptcies and the increasing costs of Social Security. His failure to attain re-election may be attributable to the death of the ferocious campaign advisor Lee Atwater - one of the only people able to convince Bush to emphasize his achievements and point out the flaws of his opponents.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • George H.W. Bush: (televised address) Iraq will not be permitted to annex Kuwait. It's not a threat, it's not a boast, it's just the way it's going to be.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This second installment (sub-titled "CAVU") runs 90 minutes in length and was co-produced by Callie Taintor Wiser. CAVU is a flight term meaning "ceiling and visibility unlimited."
