Rush Limbaugh on Foreign Policy

Conservative Talk-show Host


Gorbachevís ouster gives world peace a chance; end Gorbasms

[In Gorbachevís speeches, he says] the Cold War is over but it is not an affirmation of anybodyís particular values and it shouldnít be considered a victory for the West. Well, heís dead wrong [but the media agree with him: a Gorbasm]

A Gorbasm, ladies & gentlemen, is fake. A Gorbasm is a phony feeling of bliss and euphoria. Mikhail Gorbachev was credited by the media, and by many liberals in this country, with preserving the peace and security of the planet threatened by warmonger Ronald Reagan, and with bringing freedom to Eastern Europe and what used to be the Soviet Union.

To me, the Reagan defense buildup showed that we could maintain a world-class defense and a first-class economy, and the Soviets crumbled trying to keep up.

The time for worldwide jubilation was the day the USSR disintegrated. Gorbachevís ouster has given the best reason in the world to have that one final, but sincere, Gorbasm. For now that the communist regime has imploded, there truly is a chance for lasting peace.
