    [The 90’s Election Specials raw: Bush at Polish National Alliance #2]

    Raw tape for The 90’s election specials. President George H.W. Bush speaks to the Polish National Alliance at the Hyatt in Chicago. The camera is situated very far back in the room and doesn’t capture anything very interesting. The camera was also briefly turned off during the classic moment from this event, when Polish National Alliance President Ed Moskal calls Bush a “freedom farter.” Since Bush only appears for a few minutes, the majority of the tape is just footage of the press.
