  • George W. Bush Suddenly Learns To Talk Again, Goes After Trump On Syria(nothing on Obama)

    George W. BushÂ’s presidency is an interesting period to reflect back on. By a certain sect of Republicans, Bush is held up as a good man that did the best he could in a difficult time. ThereÂ’s some truth to that characterization in so far as the challenges after 9/11 were real. As time has passed though, Republicans at large have taken a more critical eye at his myriad of missteps, not just on foreign policy (of which the ramifications we are still suffering today), but also in his inability to accomplish much of anything for the conservative cause in...

  • President George W. Bush on Compassionate Conservatism

    GWB Institute ^ | 2018 | William McKenzie
    Compassionate conservatism remains as relevant today as when President George W. Bush campaigned for president on its principles in 2000. In this conversation, President Bush takes a deep dive into the philosophy. From helping displaced workers at home through economic policy, to defending the oppressed overseas, to ensuring a quality education for all, the core responsibility of government is to care for its people. "I do think respect and civility are possible. Ultimately, wise leaders are going to sense this feeling of frustration among voters and rise above all of this. For example, when Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and I...

    Bush — who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican presidential primary — said that the Arizona senator “detested the abuse of power and could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.” “He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,” Bush continued. “John’s voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder: ‘We’re better than this, America is better than this’.” Watch above, via CNN.

    NASA shared photos of the capsule's transfer to the White House lawn in a tweet July 21. The display was part of the Made in America showcase, an annual product display launched by President Donald Trump to highlight American manufacturing. The capsule earned its place thanks to its production by Lockheed Martin in 2011 and 2012 using parts manufactured by more than a thousand companies based in the U.S., NASA officials wrote. This specific Orion capsule is the only one to have flown so far, during a test flight on Dec. 5, 2014, according another NASA tweet about the display....

At 92 years old, Bush has been suffering for some time and has been in and out of the hospital multiple times in the last year while battling with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, and congestive heart failure. The source said she is being cared for at her home in Houston and has decided she does not want to go back into the hospital.

    Breitbart ^ | 11-6-2017 | Katherine Rodriguez
    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 New York Times ^ | September 7, 2000 | Richard L. Berke and Frank Bruni
    Prominent Republicans around the country, including several who advise Gov. George W. Bush, say they are worried that his candidacy has floundered in recent weeks, allowing Vice President Al Gore to build on his velocity from the Democratic convention in a way that they never expected. While none of these Republicans expressed panic and all said that Mr. Bush could reverse the trend, they acknowledged puzzlement, frustration and even some distress about the strides that Mr. Gore has made, a degree of progress that they said went beyond an inevitable tightening in polls. ''There's no doubt about it: There's real...

    The New York Times ^ | November 14, 2000 | Jim Yardley and Sam Howe Verhovek
    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...

    Dr. Sebastian Gorka speaks at the International Special Training Centre's Military Assistance Course, Pfullendorf, Germany, May 14, 2015. (Photo by 7th Army Training Command via Flickr) Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka fought back last week against former President George W. Bush’s thinly veiled attacks on President Trump in a recent speech, telling EWTN host Raymond Arroyo that while Bush criticized the current climate of “conspiracy theories” and “bigotry,” it was in fact President Obama who “drove the division” in America. “We just came out of eight years in which the White House drove the division,” Gorka said. “They looked...

    President Donald Trump's recent comments are making Republican strategist Ron Christie nervous – and he told CNBC he's probably not the only one. On Thursday, Trump cryptically suggested that a meeting with senior military leaders was "the calm before the storm. "It gives our allies and adversaries pause for reflection to say, 'What is the United States about to do?'" said Christie, former special assistant to President George W. Bush.

    Former president George H.W. Bush and his son George W. Bush condemned hatred and bigotry on Wednesday — a day after President Trump incendiary comments further inflamed racial tensions in the US. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s...

    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.

    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...
