    Former President George W. Bush, who led the United States into war across the Middle East, attacked President Trump on Wednesday night, saying U.S. intervention is necessary “for the sake of peace” around the globe. During a panel alongside former President Bill Clinton at the Nir School of the Heart, Bush laid into Trump for his recent decision to withdraw up to 1,000 American troops from northeast Syria — fulfilling his longheld campaign promise to bring troops home after more than a decade of war. “An isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world,” Bush said, according to the Washington...

  • Ex-Bush Aide Has Damning Theory For Why Trump Supporters Won't Turn On Him (LOL)

    Yahoo! News ^ | October 14, 2019 | Ed Mazza, Huffington Post
    Peter Wehner said there’s a reason why many of President Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters won’t turn on him. “It is almost like a hermetically sealed world,” Wehner said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “Facts are like BBs, they’re just bouncing off of a brick wall. They just don’t penetrate.” Wehner, who served in the administrations of presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and as a senior aide in the White House of President George W. Bush, said it comes down to a concept called the psychology of accommodation. “People decided early on for a variety of reasons to accommodate...

    It was an image that instantly went viral on Sunday: Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife were spotted at the Dallas Cowboys game against the Green Bay Packers, seated next to George W. and Laura Bush.  As is inevitable in our outrage-fueled cancel culture, some malcontents, mainly on the Left, were irate that a popular and mainstream figure like Ellen would allow herself to be seen having a nice time with a Republican.  For just a moment, Trump derangement was supplanted by its predecessor condition on Twitter, as encapsulated by this rant from a professional angry...
  • Former George W. Bush chief of staff endorses Trump impeachment inquiry

    Andrew Card, who served as White House chief of staff during the George W. Bush administration, on Monday expressed support for House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry of President Trump, saying that "clearly lines have been crossed." "I do think an impeachment inquiry is warranted," Card, who led Bush's White House team between 2001 and 2006, said on MSNBC while addressing revelations about Trump's alleged efforts to enlist Ukraine's help in his 2020 reelection campaign. Card cautioned that he wasn't sure if Trump's actions qualified as an "impeachable offense" and implored members of Congress to let the investigation play out before reaching...

    Wash Examiner ^ | Sep 9 2019 | David M Drucker
    Differences over President Trump reverberated during a weekend reunion bash for White House alumni of George W. Bush, exposing rifts in the network of Republican operatives and officials. Matt Schlapp, a lobbyist and enthusiastic Trump supporter who served as political director in the Bush White House, had to be convinced to attend the reunion by a fellow "Bushie," often a term of scorn in the Trump White House, after he expressed fears of being confronted. Another Bush administration veteran, sometimes critical of Trump and sometimes not, was accosted at the gathering by a former colleague and accused of being too...

    Given the volume of commentary describing Donald Trump as a uniquely polarizing figure—and the amount of time Democrats spend attempting to end his presidency—one might think he is among the most partisan Presidents in our history. But that’s not the message in the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal survey. Not that voters don’t give Mr. Trump a large share of the blame when asked who is responsible for “the partisanship that goes on in Washington.” In the June NBC/WSJ poll, 43% of respondents give the Trump administration “almost all” or “a major part” of the blame. When you consider that another...

The president shook hands and waved to citizens. President Bush is the first sitting President to participate in the Chicago parade; he was received warmly in Chicago.

    here are no Americans in America and no history of America — just immigrants and their “story,” says a new video by former President George W. Bush’s Bush Center. “America’s story is an immigrant story,” says the video. “Now as before, American is a nation of immigrants,” says the video which refers to 280 million Americans — including many who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 — merely as an unnamed blob of “population,” “labor force,” “workers,” and even “natives.” American would be weak without immigrants, the video argues, as it declares that “immigrants make America strong.”
  • We Made Donald %#&@ Trump PRESIDENT -- What Else Can We Do?

    This nation is mind-bogglingly generous. But decades of lies make it impossible for even the most tender-hearted American to fall for this bait-and-switch one more time. Every politician swears up and down that he wants a "secure border." But then these same politicians go absolutely berserk when Trump says he wants to build a wall.

    Congress has tried to sneak through amnesties three times in a little more than a decade. Every time, the American people somehow found out -- despite the best efforts of the press -- rose up in a rage and killed the proposed bills. In 2006, President Bush got the brilliant idea to push amnesty on the country. His party was wiped out the very next time voters could get to the polls. Liberals like to claim that their brave opposition to the Iraq War led to the midterm slaughter, but, as I recall, they were against that war in the...

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas - If you want a short course in understanding why border relations between the U.S. and Mexico tend to be a bit shaky, I heartily recommend a visit to the place where the border wall begins. That’s in this city at the eastern end of the Rio Grande near where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico. To get to the wall, which was built during the Bush 43 administration, you drive to the campus of Texas Southmost College and then follow a dirt road as it runs along an eight-foot fence. The fence soon turns into a...

    GWB Institute ^ | 2018 | William McKenzie
    Compassionate conservatism remains as relevant today as when President George W. Bush campaigned for president on its principles in 2000. In this conversation, President Bush takes a deep dive into the philosophy. From helping displaced workers at home through economic policy, to defending the oppressed overseas, to ensuring a quality education for all, the core responsibility of government is to care for its people. "I do think respect and civility are possible. Ultimately, wise leaders are going to sense this feeling of frustration among voters and rise above all of this. For example, when Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and I...

    President Trump exchanged greetings with his predecessor Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama after arriving at George H.W. Bush ’s funeral Wednesday, but there was a noticeable lack of warmth between the commander-in-chief and the woman he defeated to win the White House. Bush’s funeral brought together all of the living former presidents – Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter – as well as Trump and first lady Melania Trump. The pair was seated in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral next to the Obamas. Trump shook hands with Obama and former first...

    Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their place in the front row at President George H. W. Bush's funeral at National Cathedral yesterday morning, right next to the Obamas. It was a bit awkward considering the past war of words between the two couples. Trump has accused Obama of authoring some of the worst deals the U.S. has ever signed and is currently upending his predecessor's legacy, while Obama has sounded off on Trump's policies. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama wrote some unflattering things about 45 in her new book, including how she'll never forgive him for his role in...

    There is no light coming from the Washington Post, but only the kind of darkness that corrosive hatred brings The Washington Post headline on the Bush funeral shouts volumes: ‘Bush funeral: Trump sits with fellow presidents but still stands alone’. WaPo wants a grieving world to believe that “from the moment he crossed the transept of the soaring Washington National Cathedral, tore off his overcoat and took his seat in the front pew, President Trump was an outsider.” Wrong: Donald Trump “was an outsider” from the day he won the 2016 presidential election, something the mainstream and social media saw...

    Alan Simpson will speak today at George H. Bush’s tribute. His speech will be likely heart felt and perhaps sometimes light-hearted. Here are some of his funnier lines from the past._____________ “I watch Republicans, they give each other the saliva test of purity, and then they lose and they bitch for four years.” — — On the need for a socially tolerant, big tent Republican Party, in a Feb. 2012 interview with CBS’s Bob Schieffer. “[Social Security is] a milk cow with 310 million tits.” — in an August 2010 email, which he later apologized for. “If this had happened...
