    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.

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.

    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.

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...

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.

But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.

    George W. Bush has stepped out of the public eye since leaving office, but absence hasn't made the nation’s heart grow fonder. The 43rd President of the United States is the most unpopular living former president, a CNN/ORC International poll has found, as only 43% of people surveyed said they had a favorable opinion of him and 54% viewed him unfavorably. The negative rating puts Bush far behind his fellow living ex-Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Dubya’s father, George H.W. Bush. Clinton nabbed a 66% favorable rating, Carter scored a 54% rating, and 59% of those polled said they...

    ON Friday night, the nation’s capital was under a tornado watch. And that was the best thing that happened to the White House all week. As the president was being slapped by Mitt Romney for being too weak on national security, he was being rapped by a Times editorial for being too aggressive on national security. A Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane revealed that the liberal law professor who campaigned against torture and the Iraq war now personally makes the final decisions on the “kill list,” targets for drone strikes. “A unilateral campaign of death is untenable,”...

    There's a group of very special ladies in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area who make 'neck pillows' for soldiers coming through Dallas Fort Worth airport. They head up there and meet the incoming planes every single week just to greet the soldiers who are returning home for a few weeks of R-n-R. These patriotic Texas women give them a pillow, let the troops know that they pray for them, then thank them for their service. And one of these wonderful ladies took the following pictures... she noted that everyone was quite surprised to see George and Laura Bush suddenly standing...
  • Romney gets Bush backing, but no sign of George W. (Barf alert)

    George W. Bush is as hard to find in his father's office, as he is in the 2012 presidential contest. The 43rd president appears in a gold-framed picture tucked into a far corner of the room, partially hidden by a Texas flag and a cabinet door. The placement — whether intentional or not — is a reminder of the Republican presidential campaign and the lengths to which Romney and his rivals have tried to marginalize the two-term president.

    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?

    Here he comes... Dick Cheney offers no regrets about his controversial role as one of America’s most influential vice presidents or his 40-year career. 'This is not an apology tour. 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

    Only a few months after 9/11, American troops located Osama Bin Laden in the Tora Bora mountains of Afghanistan - so how was he able to evade them?As members of the British Special Boat Service (SBS) team listened in to conversations on a captured short wave radio, they heard a voice they believed to be their target. Two of the team spotted a tall figure in a camouflage jacket moving with a 50-man protective detail, who went into a cave through a hidden entrance. Only a few months after the 11 September 2001 attacks, Osama Bin Laden seemed to be...
