Trump: Bush probably worst U.S. president (Donald Trump Pumping Hillary for Commander in Chief)
World Net Daily ^ | March 16, 2007

Posted on 03/27/2011 9:11:49 PM PDT by reasonisfaith

Businessman and "Apprentice" television star Donald Trump blasted President George Bush today, calling him "probably the worst president in the history of the United States," and blaming his 2004 victory on the Democrat ticket.

Appearing on CNN's "Situation Room," Trump was asked by host Wolfe Blitzer his opinion of Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards.

"I don't know him," Trump answered. "People like him. I know people that like him very much, but I really don't know him."

Trump went on to say that Edward's experience as John Kerry's 2004 running mate was a negative in his estimation.

"Well, I think that's a huge negative, because that was a shame that that race was lost, because look what we have right now," Trump said. "It's a disaster. So, you know, I would probably be inclined not to like him on the basis that he lost an election that should have been won. That election should have been won."

Trump noted that the blame fell on Kerry as well.

"He's a friend of mine. But I'm so upset that he blew it," he said.

"I think Bush is probably the worst president in the history of the United States. And I just don't understand how they could have lost that election."

Asked about Hillary Clinton, Trump praised the former first lady, saying he thought she was ready to be commander-in-chief.

So Trump is stuck on the birth certificate, like so many of us were two and three years ago.

If he can expose Obama's eligibility problem with this, then good. But it should be viewed in the proper context.

In the past Trump has shown a clear allegiance with the far left. And as for all the other destructive actions by Obama--starting with A, proceeding with Obamacare and ending with Z--I don't remember Trump uttering a single word.

To truly earn credit for standing up to Obama, Trump would have to match the fight and the spirit of someone like Sarah Palin.

I say he doesn't come close.

Any Leftist jerk that wants to climb up has to step on Bush first. It’s required.

He donated to Rahm Emanuel’s mayoral campaign because he values “friendships” over ideology. That told me everything I needed to know about him.

And I say...you're right.

Let's see if he means what he says, because he has never been a conservative.

What is ironic, is that he thought Bush was a disaster. Then what does he think about Obama?

Trumps can never buy one drop of the class the Bush family has. He knows it, he can’t do a thing about it, and by trying he can only continue to prove it is so.

Trump is pure populist.

It was fashionable to dump on Bush a few years ago.

He'll do whatever gains him points.

If this exposure of Trump’s leftist leanings has ticked you off so much, I’d say you should try to get your priorities straight.

Donald Trump: I think Bush is probably the worst president in the history of the United States.

My mother said to me many times as I was growing up... "just because somebody makes a lot of money doesn't mean they know anything".

He may be a dumb leftist, but who really cares what his political opinions are?

If he can get the birth certificate issue more publicity and make the public more doubtful about Obama’s eligibility, then I’ll be happy.

Trump was pro choice and pro government run health care back during the 2000 presidential cycle.

BTW, anybody know how many times Trump has filed for bankrupcy?

Maybe it’s the DEMONRAT primary he’s aiming for, not what peeps be thinking up till now.

If he does become President, I’ve got a slogan already.

“Dump the Trump!!!”

O, yes. How would he try to do that, though? He's not gonna be the democratic nominee, and his chance of winning the repub nomination is almost zero. If he wants to run as a third party candidate, then yes, that would be disastrous.

This thread has you hopping mad!

I didn’t tell Trump to go around doing interviews about how much he loves John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.

Would it have been preferable to just bury the fact that he’s a leftist—to let him go on playing the role of “conservative” with as few people knowing the truth as possible? Is that what you want?

I honestly don’t care what he said 4 years ago.

Right now he’s a useful tool. He has gotten the BC issue into the mainstream/pop culture of America. For that I am thankful.

Someone improperly put the tags “birthcertificate” “certifigate” and “naturalborncitizen” on this article. This article is about the Bush administration.

Now I suspect his recent birther thing is just to smoke out other birthers so they can be made fools of. I guess he's officially working for the DNC this year.

At this point, the way Trump is being portrayed on Fox News and even by Limbaugh is very different from the way Trump really is.

2012 voters need to know the truth.

Trump is to the left of Mitt Romney on social issues and to the left of Mike Huckabee on economic issues. IOW, a RINO’s RINO.

OOOOOOH, I’m laughning my a$$ off right now...

Trump GOP donations:

• $7,500 to former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R)
• $5,000 to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.)
• $2,000 to former President George W. Bush (R)

Like Trump, I even donated to this guy when I was younger and more naive:

• $4,000 to former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.)

does that make me unfit for the GOP also?
