Hopefully President Bush will kick the muslim tyrant, obama, out of the White House. Go in Mister President, then stay in the Oval Office, the world needs you.

An European who wish obama out in November.

Will Mr. Obama have a couple of paragraphs engraved below the name plate on the picture frame about how he brought us back “from the brink” after President Bush's “disastrous” presidency and that he needs four more years (at least!) to undo the damage the Republicans have done as well as a web address to donate to his campaign? Or the little parable about the car in the ditch and taking away the car keys?

He’s probably gotten himself painted into the picture somewhere .... like he’s gotten himself inserted into the presidential biographies.

“Go in Mister President, then stay in the Oval Office, the world needs you.
I do miss President George Bush.”

“I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system.”

G.W. Bush

No use in replacing one socialist with another socialist.

So had GW Bush stood by and watched as there was a complete collapse of the banking system you would be happy ?
The come from behind critics like you with your stupid glib answers are a dime a dozen

Watch what happens in Greece and imagine that happening here in a week and you will know what Bush was facing,

Id like to see one of you guys last 2 hours in the job of President as the alarm bells are going off

We were lucky Bush was in there when he was ,,,,we are unlucky with Obama in there now

I opposed the 2008 bank bailout and any subsequent or future bailouts of banks, Wall Street or the Auto companies.

The Free Market will always survive and thrive on its on and should never be abandoned for Socialism.

Also look at this part of the quote: “ to save the free-market system.”

Did he do that?

As Obama continues to use a wrecking ball on it I have to say yes he did.

Do you want to argue that there is no longer a free market system?

Then move out and find a better place

I really wish W would not do this as we all know he will have some "nice" things to say about Dear Leader which will only help him with the moderates.

Even if he doesn't, a photo op (which the Lame Stream Media will plaster all over) will be and advantage for the Fascist, snake.

If we are being honest here, the troubles President Bush faced in 2008 were not the result of the ‘free market’, we were well past that point at the time.

The moderates would use Bush being polite to Obama at Bush’s official portrait unveiling as an excuse to vote for Obama??????????

What kind of moderates would these be?

If they are Republican moderates, they have Mitt Romney to vote for.

If they are Democrat moderates, why would they take their cue from George W Bush? Answer: they wouldn’t.

Since George is a big Lib with an R (compassionate!) by his name perhaps he should use this portrait? Marx certainly inspired W with so very much, including his “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save to save the free-market system” idiocy. George “saved” the “free market “ with BIG GOVERNMENT??? Yes! And he created the fabulous Medicare part D! No child left behind. Patriot act. Marx would be so PROUD! Way to go "compassionate" republican George...

My exact thoughts too. I think this thing was timed for W's comments to be place in an Obummer campaign ad.

Sure wish W would have waited till after November.

“Do you want to argue that there is no longer a free market system?”

America with the Wall Street bailouts, bank bailouts and GM and Chrysler bailouts of 2008 is no longer a free market system.

You simply can not save capitalism by imposing socialism and that is what both Bush and Obama attempted to do.

How did you feel about Ronald Reagan and the S&L bailouts?

“How did you feel about Ronald Reagan and the S&L bailouts?”

I feel that President Reagan was at his ranch enjoying retirement when President George H.W. Bush signed legislation bailing out the S&L’s.

1984: The Reagan administration assumed an 80 percent share of Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Co. This remains the “most significant bank failure resolution in the history of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation,” according to an official FDIC history. In 1991 the government sold off Continental Illinois at a loss to the FDIC of $1.1 billion. This was the bailout that bequeathed the catchphrase “too big too fail.”
