President Ronald Reagan went on national TV over 20 times to speak directly to the American people about important issues, and was able to get major legislation over the opposition of the Democrat-controlled Congress. How many times did President Bush ever go on national TV and explain in a few sentences how the economic policies (e.g. Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, CRA) were set by the Democrats and he needed our help to get them to fix those economic distortions?
I don’t believe he ever did it. And that’s the problem. He should have done it within a year of becoming president. We all know he was busy around that time, but you don’t allow your nation to be destroyed economically, just because you need to prevent it from being destroyed externally.
This guy wanted to be president. It was his responsibility to make sure this never happened. And now it will be reported ad nausium that it happened on a Conservative’s watch, as if!
Nice rant! Damn, I am pi$$ed.
Yes, and GWB would be the last person on earth able to interpret the results of 2006 and 2008. He should switch parties if he thinks the word “Republican” is an albatross, which factor he has mightily undermined.
Well, then, the DNC playbook must be, like a broken clock, right twice a day.
Doublespeak for Republican Socialism.
Odd that you say that, for today “Jebbie” was saying the GOP had to go back to its “conservative” roots. Even the Bushies disagree with each other. But they all agree, alas, that “Bush is Best”. That’s a mistake the American sheeple will never make again!
Bill Clinton comes to mind!
Ike though hated Joe McCarthy, who has been proved mostly right for those who will listen (not many will listen).
George Bush Republican Socialist. Loved by none, despised by all, even me.
That was a great post. They won’t remember. Hell, half of them never even knew it in the first place.
Not one Republican running for Congress or President this year asked GWB to speak on his behalf — not one.
Don’t you think that 25 percent of the total electorate is still composed of Bush family Kool-Aid drinkers? But the number will never get past 26 percent.
It was a repudiation of Bush as he was depicted by the MSM and Liberals who destroyed him on an hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year assault. Bush made mistakes, yes, but so did a lot of other Presidents who weren’t savaged like Bush has been. IMO, Bush not standing up for himself and going directly to the American people with the truth was ill advised. He was destroyed by Liberals and the MSM and by the GOP doing nothing to defend him. I pray that the Muslim Messiah is savaged equally as bad once his destruction of America begins. May he and his cohorts reap the rage of the American people who were duped by their lies. The coming administration are a national disgrace that must have our forefathers rolling in their graves. You can bet our enemies are laughing with glee while they plot our demise.
Good luck with that...
Well, something in common...
And yet Jeb pushes amnesty. Hardly a conservative position.
Yeah, no, I just don’t trust that family. Once they are safely secured as President they turn. I suppose Jeb could be different, and I don’t deny he was decent a Governor of Florida, but after two I’m not taking the chance with a third member of that family.

No jacka$$, it was pretty much just you.
