Former President Georgie W. Bush paid tribute to the late conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday.
“Laura and I are sorry to learn that Rush Limbaugh has passed away. A son of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Rush rose as a pioneer of talk radio starting in the 1980s, and was a friend throughout my Presidency,” Bush said in a statement.
“While he was brash, at times controversial, and always opinionated, he spoke his mind as a voice for millions of Americans and approached each day with gusto,” the former president added. “Rush Limbaugh was an indomitable spirit with a big heart, and he will be missed.”
