Bush Family Memories of the New Orleans Convention Center

From Holden:

As Americans are dying outside of the New Orleans Convention Center I wonder if the President and his family remember the 1988 Republican National Convention that was held there?

Here’s 1988 GOP presidential nominee George H. W. Bush watching the proceedings from his hotel room with his family. I see Laura and I believe that’s Jeb next to her, maybe Chimpy was in the hotel bar.

A young Republican uses an American flag to pop a baloon on the floor of the New Orleans Convention Center, 1988.

Poppy accepting the nomination with his “Read My Lips” speech just over seventeen years ago; Dan Quayle lurks in the background.

Reagan clowns.
