  • John Bolton: US Voters agree George W Bush left Barack Obama with a mess

    John Bolton, Mr Bush's ambassador to the United Nations, said it would not be helpful for the Republicans to more vigorously defend the former president's record, which Democrats have sharply criticised. Mr Bolton urged Mitt Romney, the party's nominee to face Mr Obama in November, to focus on the future and resist arguing over whether their last president left behind "a big mess or a little mess". His remarks came as Mr Bush prepared to return to the White House for only the second time since leaving office in January 2009, for the unveiling of his official portrait. "I think...
  • Awkward: Obamas to Welcome George W. Bush to White House Next Week

    This ought to be fun. Barack and Michelle Obama will welcome The Most Evil Man in the World (or as he's known outside the Democratic Party, George W. Bush) and his wife Laura to the White House next week, for the unveiling of their official portraits. Of course, this comes as the current president is in full campaign mode, and W. occupies the role of Obama's eternal scapegoat. It'll be no minor miracle if Obama can make it through the unveiling without blaming Bush for something. Such ceremonies often bring together current and former presidents with rivalries, grudges or awkward...

    On November 27, 2003, one of the funniest FreeRepublic threads was born. An excited soldier broke the news that President Bush was eating in his undisclosed location.It was a complete surprise to him, to us and the media. Nobody knew where Bush was! The professional stealth and management of a dangerous but wonderful operation was a thing of beauty.Flash forward to 2012 and the immature Obama administration. Everyone knew long before Obama spoke that he was in Afghanistan. The bizarre thing was the threats made against journalists like Jammie Dupree who had to tell Neal Boortz "I don't know" when...
  • Still at it: Dan Rather insists Bush’s National Guard service in question (with Video)

    It’s been nearly eight years since Dan Rather’s long career at CBS came to a close after he ran a story that could have derailed President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection. Instead, the story about Bush’s supposedly questionable National Guard service wound up giving the media a black eye after some of the documents used to in the report turned out to be fake. Nonetheless, Rather is still at it, making the case that he was in the right and that the only reason he was forced out at CBS was because of pressure from his corporate superiors. Rather made...
  • Bush Defends Tax Cuts & Romney/Ryan Embrace Them & Bush As Well. Obama Charts An Opposing Course

    I was surprised to see President George W. Bush enter the political foray Tuesday - defending his tax cuts in general at least - so quickly after Ryan/Romney have teamed up to promote the Ryan plan. As I have said, President Bush would become an issue in this election, and Romney would either embrace/endorse Bush or would toss Bush/Bush's policies/Bush-style tax cuts/or quasi-Bush-style tax cuts under the bus. Remember Romney saying that he was an "independent" under Reagan/Bush Sr? He can't be squeamish this time around. With Ryan and Romney recently teaming up together to promote tax cuts, and Bush...

    President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history. Since March, Obama's job approval rating has hovered above Carter's, considered among the 20th century's worst presidents, but today Obama's punctured Carter's dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama's job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter's 51 percent.

    Does Anyone Have A Link To Original First Thread Of Bush Document Where FR Debunked Dan Rather? I'm trying to find the first thread where a poster put up a document claiming G.W. Bush was either AWOL or refused an Order. It was during the time the Swift Boat Navy Seamen were exposing Kerry for the fraud he was, and were speaking against Kerry. Can anyone provide me with the link where Free Republic proved that it was a Word Document and a fraud?

    IBD Editorials ^ | October 25, 2011 | DAVID IGNATIUS
    To the catalog of missed opportunities for peace in the Middle East, we can add a tantalizing if also depressing chapter: Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's secret offer in 2008 to create a Palestinian state that would feature international control of holy sites in a divided Jerusalem — a concession many Israelis have said was impossible. Condoleezza Rice discusses the Olmert proposal in her new memoir, "No Higher Honor." She writes that as she listened to Olmert's plan during a May 2008 visit to Israel, she asked herself (and the emphatic italics are hers in the text): "Am I really...

    A majority of Americans say President Obama's tenure has been either as good or worse than former President George W. Bush's, according to a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday found that 43 percent of Americans say President Obama has been a better president than Bush, while 22 percent say Obama's presidency has been about the same and 34 percent say it's been worse. Together, that's 56 percent who say Obama's presidency has been either about the same or worse than Bush's. Matched up with former President Clinton, 12 percent say Obama's presidency has been better while 35 percent...

    FIRST-PERSON: Rick Perry is no George W. Bush By Richard Land Sep 14, 2011 Richard Land NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- Many people assume Texas Gov. Rick Perry is a carbon copy of George W. Bush. Well, he isn't. Those who either love or despise former President Bush need to understand that Perry should be neither accepted nor rejected based on their opinion of Bush. Indeed, as the nation heads with full force into the 2012 election cycle, many of Perry's opponents in and out of the news media will try to tear down the Texas governor as "Bush, continued."...

    RUSH: George Bush yesterday, the 9/11 memorials. You know, a friend of mine observed this. What did Obama do? Obama went to a soup kitchen, 9/11, a day of service, as though we've got something to apologize for, for what happened on 9/11. A friend of mine observes Obama and Bloomberg both acted like it was a natural disaster. Bush, George W. Bush, who, by the way, stands tall in retrospect. Ten years, not one attack. Great statesmanship. If somebody told me today they wanted to put Bush's face on Mount Rushmore, I'd be in there supporting it. I saw...

    Pat Buchanan regularly serves as Morning Joe's lone conservative in the show's self-described 10:1 ratio of lib to conservative guests. But Buchanan this morning demonstrated that he is anything but a Republican partisan. Sounding more like Barney Frank after a bad night's sleep, Buchanan blasted President George W. Bush, claiming 43 "broke the Republican party and frankly he broke the United States as a superpower." View the video here.

It's the book of a proud conservative. He's not looking to kiss and make up with the NEW YORK TIMES set, or for that matter, some of his former Bush administration colleagues,' declares a source close to Cheney. MORE

    AP ^ | 07/11/11 | Paul J. Richards
    Newly appointed US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta told American troops in Baghdad on Monday that 9/11 was the reason they were in Iraq, before he was quickly corrected by his spokesman. "The reason you guys are here is because of 9/11. The US got attacked and 3,000 human beings got killed because of Al-Qaeda," Panetta told about 150 soldiers at the Camp Victory US base. "We've been fighting as a result of that," he said. The administration of former US President George W. Bush had hastily linked Saddam Hussein, the ousted Iraqi dictator, to the 9/11 attacks. That was one...

From Capitol Hill to the statehouses to the presidential primary, Republicans are turning their back on almost every important accomplishment of the Bush administration.

    During the 2008 campaign Barack Obama ran more against lame-duck President Bush than against his Republican opponent, John McCain. The campaign is now long over, and yet President Obama still seems haunted by the ghost of his predecessor. Last week, for example, he was railing at the Bush phantom, whom he blamed for his received economic mess. In the world of Barack Obama everything he inherited was someone else’s fault — unless he believes past policies offer him some advantage and thus are to be claimed as entirely his own. The stock market is sliding. Gas and food prices are...
