    I’ve been looking forward to seeing this. If anyone ever deserved this award, it’s Bob Dole. He’s a great American patriot. God bless him!

      • No one said Bob Dole was perfect; he was not alone in the NAFTA decision making process.
        However, Bob Dole is a true American hero AND he did more good than harm while serving this country.

        Nobody’s perfect, Bob Thomas. Swamp dwellers have no idea how the flyover people live so probably don’t think long on what their votes in the Swamp mean to the “little people”. It isn’t malicious, it’s just disinterested disconnection.

        The Republicans were the main drivers of NAFTA as Bush 41 was President…Clinton acted like he was against it and ran the middle road…Perot selected his VP and then left the race for a few weeks (maybe Deep State UNIPARTY decision)…the Dems kept the rust belt til Trump.

        I’m fairly certain that many of the Republicans who voted for NAFTA were not anticipating the ultimately disastrous effect it would have on American workers. Despite being mature and experienced Senators, not all of them were savvy businessmen and likely believed what they were told by those who ‘sold’ the concept to them. I vividly remember the debates and arguments and job loss was given as one of the reasons to not pass it. Even Rush Limbaugh in 1992 was a strong “free marketer” and was vocally pro-NAFTA, something I’d bet he privately wishes today he could take back. But hindsight is always 20/20. Let Bob retire in peace, he has served his country well.

    Our president HONORS real men and women for what they have done for our country. He doesn’t honor non patriots like his predecessor did. It means that much more for the recipients that receive these types of honors from our Incredible President!

    How’d he get so rich? All that selfless “service”?

      Presumably the same way that the rest of the swamp became so rich and I can assure you it was not through his taxpayers funded salary. I am however appreciative of the fact that he did his job well but that is no reason to celebrate the man, especially as he was doing only what was expected of him and that was to do what his voters put him in Office to do!!!!

      • svenwg: In the 21st century; I find it difficult to even FIND a man or woman who is an elected official, (at any level and in any office), who does what Bob Dole did:”he was doing only what was expected of him and that was to do what his voters put him in Office to do!!!!”
        This award ceremony serves as a notice and reminder to all what a true hero and servant of the people is made of.
        At least the swamp critters did it while he was alive and I’m sure it was at the urging of PDJT.
        Bob Dole deserves this award, IMHO.

      I’m in the distinct minority here, but I was NOT a fan of Reagan when he was president. It’s not an exaggeration to say I really disliked the man. Despite that, after he left and I started hearing word of his health problems, I started feeling bad for him. And the funeral?… when Nancy broke down, so did I. 😦

    I have noticed whenever President Trump gives speeches like this he does not make it about himself. He always makes it about the person (and persons) he is honoring, never really mentioning himself at all.

    And Dole supported the 1993 Hillary Clinton Healthcare reforms…………smh…………..Dole was a sponsor of the bill. It included:

    A mandate, a ban on denying coverage for pre-existing conditions, standardized benefits (one size fits all), and a greater roll for the federal government in healthcare. Texas Senator Phil Gramm pushed back and got the GOP to withdraw support.

    Awfully quiet this week 😦 Where are the House Committee interrogations of the gang of Obama/Hillary conspirators? Thought that was gonna happen by now. Instead we get Bannon being interrogated over nothing and the Left leaking it to the public.

    Did we verb “Ross Perot” yet (to siphon off votes)?
    At the time, I recall this young woman who volunteered on the Bill Clinton re-election campaign. I asked her loads of questions, but she couldn’t answer why anyone should re-elect him. She just wanted to be “politically active.” When I was done pounding Bill Clinton, she said “I guess I need to read up on him.” Later, someone I knew overheard her on the phone saying, “I don’t know! I panicked and voted for Perot!”

    I’ll take you all’s word that Piglosie was her usual jerk of a self and also the other dems. Did I see a pic of Steny Hoyer at the podium?. I was at work when this was going on so I missed it live. I listened VPOTUS and POTUS speeches but I can’t stomach any others. I truly admire those of you who could.
    I was never a fan of Bob Dole but I was a dem at that time. Shhh, don’t tell anyone. I do think it was very nice to honor him. I am always in awe of POTUS when he speaks in cases like this. I don’t believe the words I or me are in his vocabulary.
