Donald Trump bashes President Bush(Flashback 2008)

ABERDEEN, Scotland - The Donald to W: "You stink."

Donald Trump trashed President Bush Tuesday as a "terrible" President who has destroyed the world economy - but insisted the global crunch wouldn't stall his planned $2 billion golf resort.

"We have a President in the United States who's terrible. He stinks," Trump said.

Trump said he can't wait to see Bush head back to Texas after the November election is done.

"Hopefully, we'll have a good, new President, whoever he is," Trump said.

He praised both major party candidates - Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee and John McCain, his Republican counterpart.

"[Obama] has done an amazing job," Trump said. "He came from nowhere."

The tycoon called McCain "a friend of mine" who made a stunning political comeback.

Either will be better than Bush, said Trump.

Trump, who was in Scotland on personal business and not for U.S. politics, told a hearing on his planned megaresort that the economic climate has dramatically worsened since he first started buying land north of Aberdeen for the project.

The point is Trump thought either candidate would be better than Bush. If Trump thought that June 10th 2008, it's about the same difference as Joe the Plumber(who some have tried to trot out as a 'great conservative') not knowing who he was going to vote for 3 weeks before the election.

Trump openly admits his harsh criticism of Bush, he has never tried to duck this.

Trump is a sideshow freak on the political spectrum. This is all being done to enrich himself. Stop covering this 2 time bankruptcy, no credit BS artist. He rips people off and blows so much hot air the ice caps will actually melt. Forget him, his hair, his TV show and his ridiculous proclamations. He is not serious, except for enriching himself.

Trump’s right. The Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama administration has destroyed 200 years of American exceptionalism and prosperity. It is literally all gone, flushed down a toilet to create and sustain two distinct looter classes—the welfare poor and the socialist rich. This nation was created by and for the free individual citizen and they’ve created a system where a self-sufficient person who earns everything he has is just a sucker. If you’re rich, there’s a gravy train to ride and if you are lazy, there’s another gravy train.

The rest of us are just gravy.

You should see some of the Trump threads on Free Republic. I am stunned at how people want this guy as President. It is scary and I can’t believe it. We are in trouble if people find Trump conservative.

He should have had enough information by June 2008. In February, when McCain won the Republican nomination, I was saying McCain should have been telling Democrats pick either candidate, there’s no difference.I could tell the difference in February(and probably long before that), why couldn’t Trump?

Well, seems O’Reilly is giving him 3 weeks to get back to him on the abortion issue, does a conservative really has to ponder that one? Or is it fiscal/conservative and social/liberal?

Well, it's not like Bush DIDN'T deserve criticism.

Also, if you look at Trump's praise for Obama ("He came from nowhere") it's not like he supported his policies. Just that he became popular so fast from "nowhere".

If this is true, is there any logic for this Trump donation?
http://www.opensecrets.org/news/2011/02/donald-trumps-donations-to-democrats.html
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has received the fourth-largest amount of Trump’s contributions, including $4,800 in the successful 2010 campaign against Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle.

I think all were equally bad in their own way.

Glad you are so tuned into the inner workings of the Trump’s mind and motivations—I assume you feel he has no authentic interest in getting to the bottom of the con man Obama’s manufactured persona (by the way,good morning, Obot).

I tend to agree. He’s like Morton Downey Jr. right now.

I remember that ‘miss me yet’ of Bush going around long before they put up the billboard, yes, Bush deserved criticism, but was he going to be worse than the democrat candidate?

Trump can go straight to you know where..it really seems like to me these morons go after President Bush to get themselves in the news they all know how the media hated him..if this womanizer ever makes it past Trump Towers into the white house we had better all hide..He will finish what Soro’s and Obama started..All he has is dollar signs in front of him making more money for himself..What better way than to trash a great man like GWB than to say he was no good..especially to the communist media. Donald one day you will run out of money hungry girls to marry and they won't be able to stand to look at you..Maybe not, money does talk at least in a rich mans case..

How about the praise for Obama and McCain? He is a blowhard...and certainly not a conservative.

More evidence that he’s simply trying to split the conservative vote in the primary.

GW Bush was a disappointment. He was strong out of the gates, but finished a distant third or fourth.

“Donald Trump bashes President Bush”

So?

I’m no huge fan of Trump, but there was a lot about Bush to bash in my opinion.

“Flying Monkey Alert”

So amazing, this orchestrated push to discredit Trump by “freepers” using sensitive conservative hot buttons JUST as Trump is pulling back the veil on Obama.

You know, it stinks to high heaven ol ‘Son”.

Methinks you are waging a counter-intuitive ops to throw folks off Obama’s stinkin’ scent by going after Trump.

Guess you guys have once again been dispatched (here we go, so predictable) web-wide to disguise yourselves and attack any Obama detractors that pose real threats to the con man.

You won’t get ahead of it this time.
