Rush Limbaugh on Free Trade

Conservative Talk-show Host


Support for NAFTA cited in 1993 Gore-Perot debate

Q: Is there any one moment that sticks out in your mind to be the pinnacle" of your career?

KING: I think the Perot-Gore debate. NAFTA was gonna lose, and Bill Clinton wrote that "I owe you big time because you changed that vote." Well, I didn't change it, the show changed it. That would be the moment.

RUSH: This was the NAFTA debate. After the NAFTA debate on CNN, I was an invited and esteemed guest on 60 Minutes. During this debate, the Gore-Perot debate on NAFTA, Algore said something for the ages.

ALGORE 1993: Let me just finish this one point -- and distinguished Americans from Colin Powell to Tip O'Neill to Rush Limbaugh...

RUSH: (laughing) That's November 9, 1993, I was a distinguished American that night on the show. Yeah. Colin Powell, Tip O'Neill, Rush Limbaugh. Yeah, I was a distinguished American that night. Anyway, that's Larry's big night.
