    Former President George W. Bush says he can’t remember if he said “that was some weird s***” after President Trump’s inauguration speech in January. He was asked about the alleged remark in an interview that aired on NPR’s “Morning Edition” Thursday. He does, however, clearly remember his awkward response to rain that day. “I wish I got the rain poncho on a little more cleanly,” Bush joked, referring to his struggle to put on a transparent poncho during the ceremony as it began to rain. “My daughters were aghast. ‘Dad, you’re a national tweet sensation. You’re trending,’ or whatever the...

    Former president George W. Bush reportedly said Donald Trump’s inaugural speech was “some weird sh-t.” Bush made the comments after the January inauguration ceremony, which was also attended by Presidents Obama, Carter and Clinton, according to New York Magazine. “That was some weird sh-t,” Bush said before departing the dais, where he infamously struggled to wrangle a poncho in the day’s downpour.

    This is the 13th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War II. What if President George W. Bush had not invaded Iraq? I suggest this scenario: 1. Saddam Hussein would have become a bigger threat to the region. He had clearly come to the conclusion that the West would not stop him and was acting as such. 2. Iraq would have continued shooting at U.S. and UK planes enforcing UN resolutions. How many times do you allow someone to fire missiles at your aircraft? 3. What about Israel? We do know today that Iraq won't be attacking Israel or...

    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.

    A caller just mentioned George W. Bush making a comment on the present political situation in a negative fashion against President Trump AND in defense of the media!!! He is a TRAITOR along with McCain, Graham and other Republicans who are corrupt, bought-off and leading this nation over the edge of the cliff. The caller made an excellent point the Bush had nothing to say about Obama's wrecking ball on the nation. The elites are all on the special lifeboat while the Titana-US is sinking after hitting the immigrationliberalleftistpro-immorality iceberg.

    Bush emphasized to host “Today” host Matt Lauer the importance to “worship freely.” “I think it’s very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to or not worship at all,” Bush said. “The bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely. And I — you see, I understood right off the bat, Matt this, that is an ideological conflict. And people who murder the innocent are not religious people. They want to advance an ideology. And...

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather is teaching an online course in journalism called “finding the truth in the news” at UDemy. Now, he’s taken to Facebook to say that the media, the American people, and the political class has to call out President Trump on his lies. No, this isn’t the Onion.“These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures,” wrote Rather. “What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    George W. Bush has been very quiet so far this year. He has not offered any political opinions, one way or the other. That is in keeping with tradition. Traditionally, ex-presidents have kept out of politics. But 2016 is not a typical year. If Hillary wins, there simply will be no more Republican presidents. Unrestricted immigration will see to that. So W, do your country one last service. Endorse Donald Trump for president.

    My Fox colleagues are in Cleveland, diligently interviewing Republicans. Next week, they'll interview Democrats. I'm glad they do it -- because I despise most politicians. There are exceptions, of course, but after years of reporting, I've concluded that most politicians have little to say that's interesting, and many are craven opportunists, desperate to rule over others. A few stand out, like former Congressman Anthony Weiner. Like many politicians, he's never held a real job. He's run for office or worked for politicians all his life. Weiner married one of Hillary Clinton's closest advisers, passionately pushed leftists' bad ideas and was...

    Cleveland (CNN)Former President George W. Bush fretted to a group of former aides and advisers in April that he was worried he could be the "last Republican president." The 43rd president's remark, at a gathering in Dallas of his administration's staffers, reflected a dim view of the party's prospects at a time when the primary contest was realistically down to Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

There were many powerful moments throughout the service, but there is one moment that has been turning heads -- President Bush's dance moves during "Battle Hymn of the Republic." The former president swayed and marched in place. Michelle Obama, who was standing to Bush's left and holding hands with him, appeared surprised at first and then smiled.

    AUSTIN — With Donald Trump now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, former President George W. Bush “does not plan to participate in or comment on the presidential race,” a spokesman said Wednesday. ... And George W. Bush — whose decision was first reported by The Associated Press – isn’t the only one in his family who will be sitting out the election. A spokesman for George H.W. Bush told The Texas Tribune that the former president is “retired from politics.” “He came out of retirement to do a few things for Jeb,” Bush 41 spokesman Jim McGrath told the media...

    THE AMERICAN SPECTATOR ^ | 15 Feb 16 | Paul Kengor
    - The Donald parades in a ludicrous left-wing canard. Donald Trump took a page from MoveOn.org in the Republican debate in South Carolina on Saturday night. Speaking of the Bush decision to go to war in Iraq, Trump asserted: “I want to tell you, they lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none. And they knew there were none.” The “they” means George W. Bush, and (we must assume) basically Bush’s administration and entire security and foreign-policy and intelligence team. Trump’s accusation is outrageous. This is Code Pink/International A.N.S.W.E.R.-type stuff. Is Donald Trump trying to win...
