  • Are We Ready to Rehabilitate George W. Bush’s Reputation?

    he George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum opened seven years ago and anchors the southeastern corner of campus at Southern Methodist University, where I teach history. In late November 2016, I took a tour of the facility with five college friends who were visiting from the East Coast. The recent presidential election was much on our minds as we wandered through the building, contemplating various artifacts from Bush’s two terms in office. Although we were hardly fans of his presidency, one of my pals—fearful, like everyone in our group, of a Trump administration—got misty-eyed when reflecting upon Bush’s obvious...

    Former Republican President George W. Bush is reportedly not supporting President Donald Trump for reelection in 2020, people familiar with his thinking told the New York Times. Bush is just one of many well-known Republican politicians who do not plan to vote for Trump, the NYT reported. Bush’s brother, former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is reportedly on the fence regarding who he will give his vote to, people familiar with his thinking noted, according to the NYT. It is not immediately clear why Bush won’t vote for Trump in 2020. The president’s response regarding recent police brutality protests and...
  • George P Bush's Struggle In Texas May Signal End Of 70-year Political Dynasty

    George P Bush is the young, half-Hispanic, grandson of the 41st president, nephew of the 43rd and son of a former Florida governor. When he was elected Texas land commissioner four years ago, that background gave him a significant advantage as a fledgling Republican candidate seemingly on a fast track to stardom. Now, with conservative politics turned on its head by Trumpism, Bush is facing a tough primary election that threatens to doom his political career – and with it, bring to a close his family’s 70-year political dynasty. “It’s quite possible that the Bush political dynasty, at least for...

    Former President George W. Bush is a “brahmin Yankee from Yale” who is “pretending he’s a Texan,” Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon told the American families of illegal alien crime victims.During a speech at the Remembrance Project conference, an organization that represents the illegal alien crime victims’ families, Bannon blasted the Bush dynasty, calling out President George W. Bush specifically on his lack of leadership on the issue of illegal and legal immigration. “You want to know why I detest the elites of the Republican Party,” Bannon said. “Where were they? Where is Jeb Bush? Where...

    Former President George W. Bush went off on his former vice president and defense secretary, stating bluntly that “they did not make one f****** decision.” Bush made the inflammatory remark about his former colleagues in Mark K. Updegrove’s book The Last Republicans: Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, which is scheduled to be released November 14. The 43rd president pushed back against critics who claim he did not make major decisions during his presidency, and that former Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made most of the important decisions in...

    The White House on Saturday disparaged the legacies of the only two living Republican presidents to precede Donald Trump, after reports that both men castigated Trump in interviews last year and refused to vote for him. Former president George H.W. Bush mocked then-candidate Trump as a “blowhard” and voted for a Democratic president, while the younger Bush worried aloud that Trump would destroy the idea of a Republican president in all but name, according to “The Last Republicans,” which is scheduled to go on sale later this month. The White House responded after quotes from the book were published on...

It was made up, and I understand they paid a tremendous amount of money — and Hillary Clinton always denied it. The Democrats always denied it. And now only because it’s gonna come out in a court case, they said, yes, they did it. They admitted it, and they’re embarrassed by it. But I think it’s a disgrace. It’s just really… It’s a very sad… It’s a very...

    All human institutions are essentially a reboot of high school, and within the political scene the Never Trumpers are convinced that they are the cool kids despite being the chess club of American politics. No, they aren't the cool kids. They’re geeks, they haven't won a tournament in years and, more importantly, they're the freaking chess club. In contrast, we normals are just that, the members of the student body who have lives and after-school jobs and girlfriends and who don't care about the dorks padding their resume with student body presidencies or, in this case, jobs at the Eagle Liberty...

    After the Washington Post claimed that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was “hiding in bushes” to avoid questions from reporters about FBI Director James Comey’s firing, the paper has once again had to admit that they published fake news. In an article titled “After Trump fired Comey, White House staff scrambled to explain why” by Jenna Johnson, she made the spectacular claim that Spicer had actually hid in bushes to avoid questions from the Washington elite media. “After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes near these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told...

    The Washington Post threw some subtle shade at the Trump White House in issuing a correction on a story about Sean Spicer and his location among the bushes following the announcement of FBI Director James Comey’s termination. After an interview with Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night, the White House press secretary “disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge” while news of Comey’s firing unfolded and reporters sought more information, WaPo’s Jenna Johnson reported on Wednesday. Later that day, an editor’s note was added to the bottom of Johnson’s story, clarifying that Spicer had...

    Former first lady Barbara Bush is missing two toes, her granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager revealed Monday. "My grandma's missing a toe on each foot," the daughter of former President George W. Bush told Kathie Lee Gifford on "Today." . . . Upon realizing that the former first lady may have never disclosed not having a full set of toes, Bush Hager appeared to regret revealing the personal details. "Ganny, I'm sorry! I shouldn't have said anything."

[The New YorkerÂ’s Ken] Auletta, for example, can describe Bush at a barbeque for the press in August, where a reporter says to the president: is it really true you donÂ’t read us, donÂ’t even watch the news? Bush confirms it. And the reporter then said: Well, how do you then know, Mr. President, what the public is thinking? And Bush, without missing a beat said: YouÂ’re...

Lauren, whose handbag and clothing company FEED Projects also provides meals to impoverished nations, posted a photo of Hillary Clinton to her Instagram account, captioning it “#ImWithHer us.” The post had garnered more than 4,000 likes on Facebook as of Monday afternoon. Lauren’s odd first name-last name combination comes from her marriage to David Lauren, the son of fashion designer Ralph Lauren.

    Rumor out of Texas has it that the elder Bush will vote for Hillary Clinton. No word of denial issues from Pater, Dubya or Jeb. Thus, the fair minded conclude that this spectacularly unsuccessful one term President is not content with the mere achievement of failure in office -- scattering the Reagan coalition and handing the country to Bill Clinton in 1992 was a feat of political incompetence that at the time seemed beyond human capacity -- the old man now essays to add betrayal of his voter base to his sorry resume.

    Former President George H.W. Bush is bucking his party's presidential nominee and plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a member of another famous political family, the Kennedys. Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the White House race between Clinton and Donald Trump, a sign in and of itself of his distaste for the GOP nominee. But his preference for the wife of his own successor, President Bill Clinton, nonetheless became known to a wider audience thanks to Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy....

    Neither George W. Bush, the Republican Party nominee in 2000 and 2004, nor Jeb, the dethroned Prince of Wales, will be in Cleveland. Nor will John McCain or Mitt Romney, the last two nominees. These former leaders would like it thought that high principle keeps them away from a GOP convention that would nominate Donald Trump. Petulance, however, must surely play a part. Bush Republicans feel unappreciated, and understandably so. For Trump’s nomination represents not only a rejection of their legacy but a repudiation of much of post-Cold War party dogma. America crossed a historic divide and entered a new...

    Sorry I ever defended him and his corrupt clan... Apparently the Bushes are in the same boat as the Clintons now, where they're SO deeply indebted to various donors they're not able to retire -even if they wanted to- then ride quietly off into the sunset just because the voters want nothing to do with them...  These two boundlessly-greedy political dynasties will never go away unless shoved off the cliff- as this country is presently fixin to do. Perhaps Dubya was hoping a Jeb! administration could salvage his own legacy, just like GWB himself aspired to finish his father's unfinished chores...
