Trump lashes out at George W. Bush and Obama By: CNN Political Producer Shannon Travis
Palm Beach, Florida (CNN) Donald Trump has more harsh criticism for one of the most recognizable men in the world: George W. Bush.
In a display of bipartisan bashing, Trump lashed out at the nation's 43rd president as he criticized the 44th.
"George Bush gave us Barack Obama. If it weren't for George Bush, we wouldn't have Barack Obama," Trump said on Friday. "So I'm not thrilled with George Bush."
The billionaire real estate mogul made the comments at his famed Palm Beach estate Mar-a-Lago that sits on 20 acres and boasts 126 rooms. The star of NBC's "The Apprentice" spoke to reporters in a hastily arranged news conference moments before a posh, poolside party at the estate and hours before he was to speak at a Tea Party rally.
Trump was pressed to explain his comments.
"Because he[Bush] didn't have a great presidency, especially at the end. And because of his actions, and because of his aura, it was very tough for a Republican to win," Trump said. "And in all fairness to John McCain and to Sarah Palin, I think it would have been very, very tough for anybody for Abraham Lincoln to win after having followed George Bush."

Imagine how thrilled he would have been with Gore or Kerry.
“If it weren’t for George Bush, we wouldn’t have Barack Obama”
I disagree. If it were not for the manufactured psyop program “Bush Derangement Syndrome”, we would not have Obama.
BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS SPENT LIKE DRUNKEN SAILORS.
He may be a loose cannon but you know where he’s coming from. Maybe we are just to use to hearing a bunch of BS and the truth hurts today.
He sure is; Bush gave us Obama is the argument of a five year old.
I’m not thrilled with George Bush either, I never was. He was just that much better than his opponents.
Trump diss'es John Kerry big time. LOL!
“He sure is; Bush gave us Obama is the argument of a five year old.”
But is doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
Actually the MSM gave us Obama. If the MSM did their job instead of acting like Pravda Light, Obama would have been out of the race early in the primaries.
The MSM got their marching orders from Media Matters and Soros.
Yup, like when he says he wants a Canadian-style universal health care program.
Loose cannon or not, he is right...

...Margaret Thatcher used to talk about the ratchet effect. When the Left gets power, she said, they drive everything Left; when the Right gets power, they slow the Leftward drive, perhaps even halt it for a spell; but nothing ever gets moved to the Right. U.S. politics in the 21st century so far bears out this dismal analysis. What does the Right have to show for eight years of a Republican presidency? I supported George W. Bush in 2000 because I thought he had a conservative bone in his body somewhere. I supported him in 2004 because I thought him the lesser of two evils. At this point, I wouldnt let the fool park his car in my driveway. Bruce Bartlett was right, every damn word...Bill Gertz interview on Hannity and Colmes
Gertz: Well he casts himself as a compassionate conservative and I argue that he's neither. That his administration is neither. He's done tremendous damage to the conservative movement...
So tough for GW...... But this is smart politicking by The Donald
Knocking George Bush gets more Democrats and Independents considering Trump. And paying attention to other things Trump is going on about such as tariffs for the ChiComs and reining in OPEC. Trump is also very serious about drill here and drill now. He despises Oboingo’s green energy BS
Have to agree. Bush (thanks to Karl Rove) never fought back against the attacks. And became an easy target. He was an isolated prez for his last 2 years basically.
Rush and Sean...........thanks for giving us Ross Perot II.
The damage has been done.
His presidency was good most of the time. The financial crash at the end was something his administration tried to prevent multiple times and was told by Congressional Democrats it was a phony crisis being ginned up by the Bush Administration - even implied the attempt to reign in Freddie and Fannie was a “lynching” by one Dem Congressman. Trump needs to review his history a bit.
I think Trump’s pretty correct here. His second term was really dismal and that’s what Trump says. By the end, he was clearly completely uninterested in the whole game.
I love Bush until around 06 or so when he seemed to just give up.
