Posted on 10/19/2015 12:40:17 PM PDT by maggief
Donald Trump is not letting Americans forget that the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened under former President George W. Bush.
Trumps relentless attacks on the issue come as he battles former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.), George W. Bushs brother, for the GOPs presidential nomination in 2016.
Interesting reading re: September 11th, he tweeted Monday afternoon, referencing a New York Times story titled The Bush White House was Deaf to 9/11 Warnings. Jeb is fighting to defend a catastrophic event, Trump said of Jeb Bush in a separate post.
I am fighting to make sure it doesnt happen again, he added. "Jeb is too soft we need tougher & sharper.

You gotta love that Trump doubles down, he doesn’t back down for anything.
The Deafness Before the Storm
By KURT EICHENWALDSEPT. 10, 2012
On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That mornings presidential daily brief the top-secret document prepared by Americas intelligence agencies featured the now-infamous heading: Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S. A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal.
Instead, he doubles down.
If these talk show people and others want to defend Bush let them. Rush, Hannity and others need to realize Bush was a disaster as a President and gave us Obama
Some people think that Jebby Jr. is the heir of the Bush family in the presidential seat. Imagine the first lady of the US might be an Arab woman!

An Iraqi Jordanian girl marries Bush the grandson
Generations of the Republican dynasty gathered in Miami last week of May to celebrate the wedding of former Gov. Jeb Bushs youngest son John Ellis Bush, Jr. aka Jebby, whose grandfather, former president, infamously called him a little brown one.
Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush and their wives Barbra and Laura were among the guests at St. Jude Melkite Catholic Church as 26-year-old John Ellis Bush Jr. married Sandra Algudady on Saturday afternoon.
The elder Bush appeared frail as he walked into the church with a cane wearing a white summer suit. His granddaughters, Jenna and Barbara, were also in attendance.
Isnt that ironic? The nephew of former U.S. President George W. Bush marries an Iraqi girl holding a Jordanian passport!
Sandra is 30 years old and comes from a Jordanian father and an Iraqi mother and is the director of an charity called Strathril that is supporting marginalized youth in the Middle East and Europe. She previously worked for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and got a Masters degree in sociology from the University of McGill Canada.
The groom, also known as the Pocket, 26, is working in the real estate company, Florida, and reflects the ambition of the Family Bush to preserve the legacy of its political influence in the United States and within the structures of the Republican Party in particular, despite the bad image due to his arrest in 2005 in the case of sugar .
This is a wedding that would make your eyebrows rise :) Sandra Algudady a simple girl from an Arab family marrying a Bush one of the most influential families in the US, actually a family that ruled the United States of America. Some people think that Jebby Jr. is the heir of the Bush family in the presidential seat. Imagine the first lady of the US might be an Arab woman!
Sandra is 4 years older that the Pocket by Sandrais that marriage based on love and mutual admiration , or are there other financial/political considerations? This is what we will find out with time

How Women are Transforming the Middle East
www.cmec.org.uk, 28 Oct 2008 [cached]
The speakers were Baroness Afshar of York University, Zeina Al-Khalifa, Political Counsellor at the Bahrain Embassy and Sandra Al-Gudady, Director of the StratReal Foundation.
Sandra Al-Gudady highlighted the role of women in business in the UAE and the strong role models in the region such as Queen Rania of Jordan. She also questioned the western perception of the veil as a sign of subordination and called for a more open minded approach. She argued that at times the West even causes harm with its approach to the issue and stressed that whilst the role of women in the West and Middle East are culturally different, Arab women are still at the forefront of public life and emphasised the vital role they play as mothers of future generations.

Putin must be watching this campaign unfold and saying to himself, “This guy knows how to play chess”.
But he’s “not blaming GW Bush” for the attacks, right? If he had been President they never would have happened, right?
If I wanted to hear dem talking points I’d listen to a Hillary speech, or, you know.. a McConnell floor speech.
Jeb is a wuss on immigration, dead wrong about Common Core, and has no firm tax plan. Please, Trump, hit Bush on these things.
That's because, as a businessman, he makes sure of what he says before he says it.
You don't last long in business if you talk out your you-know-what.
What we are witnessing is Trump methodically taking Jeb apart and pushing him out of the race. Then he will turn his attention to Rubio.
In 2004, Bush’s counter terrorism chief Clarke said Bush was fixated on Saddam and ignored Al-Qaeda. Kinda stupid since Al-Qaeda in 1998 bombed 2 US embassies killing over 200 people.
In 2000, 19 months before Sept. 11, 2001, Donald Trump wrote extensively of the terrorism threat the United States was facing.
Trump, who at the time was considering a presidential bid on the Reform Party ticket, went so far as to say that an attack on a major U.S. city was not just a probability, but an inevitability.
if he considered the attacks an inevitability what did he do..THEN..to try to stop them.???
“Then he will turn his attention to Rubio.”
That won’t take very long.
“...Jeb is a wuss on immigration, dead wrong about Common Core, and has no firm tax plan. Please, Trump, hit Bush on these things.”
Trump is aiming to get more “truthers” and G.W. Bush bashers on his side (mainly liberals and other assorted Dumbocrats). He is the opposite or Ronald Reagan who got normal, middle class Democrats to vote for him.
It is becoming clear that Donald Trump already has the “double down” in mind when he originally teas something up. The guys ability to grasp tactical intelligence and act on it is truly amazing. I hope the career professionals a CIA, DIA, and State are taking note. They will definitely have to up their game when they are briefing President Trump.
When did the Bush family ever have a kind thing to say about conservatives? They despised us. They still despise us. I don't mind them being smeared, even if it is unfair. Let the violent criminal illegal invaders Laura and Columba adore defend that family of elitist morons!!
What power did he have THEN to do anything about it?
Putin plays chess, and Obongo plays tic-tac-toe.
Not just another chess player, but a Grandmaster
I agree. :-)
