  • Vanity - "Republican Establishment" RINOs, "Never Trumpers", Dead-On-Arrival.

    11/08/2017 4:55:22 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 50 replies
    Republican Establishment, RINO, Ed Gillespie wanted no part of POTUS, Donald J.Trump in his campaign. Instead, he chose and preferred the deadbeat, "has-been" ex-POTUS, G.W.Bush to campaign with and for him. Ed Gillespie got massively politically slaughtered last evening by a weak, incompetent Democrat. Thousands of Virginian Trump supporters stayed home and did not turn out to vote for Gillespie. In fact, Gillespie's two running mates Jill Vogel & John Adams received more votes then Gillespie who was heading the ticket. I did not like Ed Gillespie, never did like him, but I gave him 100% support...across the board in...
  • G.O.P. Governors in Key States Failed to Deliver for Bush (Flashback)

    They were among the most powerful and, in many cases, most popular political figures in their states, proven Republican vote-getters who coalesced remarkably early around one of their own for the presidency: George W. Bush. And so, from Tom Ridge in Pennsylvania to John Engler in Michigan to his own brother Jeb, in Florida, Mr. Bush could count on the company of an important Republican governor when he campaigned in the biggest battleground states. These governors and others like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin helped define Mr. Bush's very candidacy, vouching for his character, policies and record on the network talk...

    To some, they might seem an unlikely twosome: a former president and former first lady from two different administrations, different political parties, different generations and different upbringings. But George W. Bush tells PEOPLE that he feels a real fondness for Michelle Obama. “She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” says Bush, in an interview to launch his first art book and new exhibit, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors, a collection of his paintings of post-9/11 war veterans.

    Former President George W. Bush is criticizing President Donald Trump's first month in office, though he remains optimistic about the future. "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated," Bush told People magazine. "Nobody likes that." . . . "I didn't feel like speaking out before because I didn't want to complicate the job and I'm not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up." The Bush Center programs include immigration ceremonies, AIDS prevention programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women.

    Dear GWB You are an idiot for helping a media that tore you down. You are also a coward who couldn’t even be bothered to defend yourself when you were president, (I defended you. I wish I could take it back now, you didn't deserve to be defended) Further evidence of your cowardice -- you couldn't be bothered to criticise the terrible obama presidency. But now, now that America’s very democracy is hanging by a thread, you have the nerve to come and out and attack the only person holding it together? FUGWB, Please go crawl under a rock and...

    Former U.S. president George W. Bush said Monday that a free press was 'indispensable to democracy' during his two White House terms – hinting that he disagrees with President Donald Trump's assessment of some reporters as 'the enemy of the people.' 'We need an independent media to hold people like me to account,' Bush said on the 'Today' show. 'I think power can be very addictive, and it can be corrosive, and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere.'

    Once again, Obama skips over a few important details. March 24, 2016 Hugh Fitzgerald    Apologists for Islam are a varied bunch – some reveal ignorance, others deploy deliberate taqiyya – but all play fast and loose with history. Here are three examples:Karen Armstrong on the Expulsion of the Moors In 1492, the year that is often said to inaugurate the modern era, three very important events happened in Spain. In January, the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella conquered the city of Granada, the last Muslim stronghold in Europe; later, Muslims were given the choice of conversion to Christianity or exile.

    He’s back. George W. Bush ended years of self-imposed political exile on Monday with a full-throated defense of his brother Jeb, who could face a last stand in Saturday’s South Carolina primary. Never mentioning his little brother’s chief tormentor and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump by name, the former president made it clear before a crowd of hundreds of supporters that he considers the brash real estate magnate unfit for the presidency — and his brother ready to serve. “These are tough times and I understand Americans are angry and frustrated, but we do not need someone in the Oval...

    Republican Donald Trump is previewing the attacks he plans to unleash against George W. Bush when the former president hits the campaign trail for his brother next week. Trump tells a crowd of thousands at a rally in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that he has read reports about the former president's plans to campaign with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Trump says Jeb Bush "tried the mother, that didn't work out so good. Now he's bringing in his brother." Trump repeated his own opposition to the war in Iraq and pointed to George W. Bush "getting us in that quicksand." He...

    Robert Novak wrote Prince of Darkness (according to his publicity materials) to vindicate himself and to settle scores. Among those scores are one with former diplomat Joe Wilson, and another with me. Even from Novak’s own point of view, however, it would have been better if he had left those scores unsettled and this book unpublished. I am not sure I have ever read a memoir that so artlessly presents so damning a self-portrait. The title is unintentionally unironic: The man revealed in these pages is indeed a dark soul. I’ll leave my own part in this story to the...

    Well, this should make the crapweasels in D.C. listen. On Monday, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals told the immigration power-grabbers in the Obama administration to stuff it. The amnesty sympathizers in the media mourned mightily. "Appeals court rules against Obama's plan to protect about 5 million people from deportation," the Associated Press spun. "Court again blocks Obama's plan to protect undocumented migrants," the left-wing U.K. Guardian decried. "President Barack Obama's executive action to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation suffered a legal setback on Monday with an appeal to the Supreme Court now the administration's only option," Reuters...

    11 Months before September 11: Secondly, there is other forms of racial profiling that goes on in America. Arab-Americans are racially profiled in what is called secret evidence. People are stopped, and we have to do something about that. My friend, Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan, is pushing a law to make sure that Arab-Americans are treated with respect. So racial profiling isn’t just an issue at local police forces. It’s an issue throughout our society. And as we become a diverse society, we’re going to have to deal with it more and more. I believe, though — I believe,...

    George W. Bush: Hillary Clinton is like ‘my sister-in-law’ By Jose A. DelReal December 5 Former President Bush has spoken at length about his close ties to former President Bill Clinton, at times calling him his "brother from another mother." CNN's Candy Crowley asked Bush during an interview published Friday where that leaves Hillary Clinton: "My sister-in-law!" the president responded light-heartedly. When asked about a potential Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, the former president conceded they would both be formidable candidates but insisted his brother — his real brother — would win.

    The AP buried the lede in its report Saturday on President Barack Obama’s drive to grant by executive order legal status and work permits to millions of illegal aliens in defiance of Congress. At the very end of the 22 paragraph article, entitled Experts: Obama Can Do a Lot to Change Immigration, is mention that President George W. Bush considered doing what Obama is pushing for now after being similarly stymied by Congress on amnesty but his advisors concluded the presidency did not have the constitutional authority to act in such manner: "After a broad immigration bill failed in 2007,...

    To understand why Iraq is imploding, you must understand Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki — and why the United States has supported him since 2006. I have known Maliki, or Abu Isra, as he is known to people close to him, for more than a decade. I have traveled across three continents with him. I know his family and his inner circle. When Maliki was an obscure member of parliament, I was among the very few Americans in Baghdad who took his phone calls. In 2006, I helped introduce him to the U.S. ambassador, recommending him as a promising option for...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said he blames the current crisis in Iraq on those who backed the 2003 U.S. invasion, not President Obama. Paul was asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether former Vice President Dick Cheney is a “credible critic” after he blasted Obama for his strategy for Iraq in an op-ed last week. “I think the same questions could be asked of the same people who supported the Iraq war,” Paul said. “What’s going on now..I don’t blame President Obama. I blame the Iraq war and I blame the people who supported the Iraq war for...
