I understand he's not the most popular political figure in the country, but Bush isn't winning any style points or doing the country any favors by being a gentleman and keeping his mouth shut. Its crunch time.
Skeeter, I agree with that to a certain extent. I will have to tell you it sounds somewhat like “It’s Bush’s fault!” when I read it though.
Should Bush be speaking up? I believe so. If he does it all the time, it really does open the door to past presidents simply neutering good presidents when they come along.
Look at what McCain did to Bush first term. It was just plain lunacy, and I’m not a big Bush fan by any means.
A president has to be given space. This one has had his space, and it is time for someone of stature to explain what they see as potential treason. Perhaps Bush is the guy to deliver that.
The problem once again, is that then the Democrats scream treason every time future good presidents go to the restroom.
Honestly, I don’t know what the answer to this is.
Obama is so far out of bounds these days, someone on the Left must have noticed. In the best case, leading Democrats would out this guy for what he is.
Evidently those days are gone. Goldwater refused to support Nixon and he was done. Now we can’t even get treason addressed by the Democrat counterpart to Goldwater.
I wish all of these big-government globalists would get the hell out of the public eye for good.
I think Bush is smart enough to shut up....we would be hearing the Choir sing its rendition of “ Bush’s Fault” in B flat if he said anything
VP Cheney has about 5000 X the understanding around how to run a government versus the Kenyan punk in the WH. Refreshing to get a plausible explanation of what is going on this complex situation, versus the dart board diplomacy presently being employed by the amateurs there now.
Confused about Obamas foreign policy? With Clintons foreign policy?
You are likely familiar with the Hierarchy of Needs - Things a human MUST have in order survive: for a minute, for an hour, for a day, for a week, for a year, etc. Until those needs are met, he or she cannot look for less important things. Air, water, food, clothing, shelter, etc .. All can get ranked according to a humans most important priorities.
Now consider every foreign policy decision, speech, foreign leader, foreign trip (well - except vacations), and foreign award or recognition Obama has chosen since 2008.
In every case, Obama and his minions have chosen from a list which can only be described as a hierarchy of hatred ...... Once you know who he hates more than another (who his staff hates - It really isn’t clear whether Obama is smart enough to actually do anything himself) - you know what every foreign policy decision will be:
In every case, Obama has chosen
Radical Islamic bands over Islamic fundamentalist states.
Islamic fundamentalist states over Islamic Sharia-compliant states;
Islamic Sharia states over Islamic religious states;
Islamic religious states over Islamic-tolerant states;
Islamic-tolerant states over Islamic dictatorships;
Islamic dictatorships over Islamic secular states;
Islamic secular states over Islamic republics;
Islamic republics over communist governments;
communist governments over socialist dictatorships;
socialist-dictatorships over socialist-selected governments;
socialist-selected governments over socialist-elected governments;
3rd world socialist-republics over European-white-socialist governments;
European-socialist governments over European-republics;
European-republics over America or English interests;
The democrat-donor or government-enhanced interest over any republican/capitalist/energy/white/male/oil/red interest;
And in every case, when given a public choice, Obama has chosen anybody else over Israeli;
Yep. Too many “gentlemen legislators” on the good side. The bad side has nothing but smart ass punks.
“...I understand he’s not the most popular political figure in the country, but Bush isn’t winning any style points or doing the country any favors by being a gentleman and keeping his mouth shut...”
RE Cheney: I always liked the guy. The fact that he made lib heads explode at the mention of his name was always a bonus.
RE Bush keeping silent: He’s doing what he always did. And that was a sore point with me. You HAVE to fight back.
“Bush isn’t winning any style points or doing the country any favors by being a gentleman and keeping his mouth shut.”
I would beg to differ. He just might be doing us a favor
by keeping his mouth shut. He has a lot to do with the
Obama getting in. All the while he was in the White House
he set there and did nothing while this anti conservative
rhetoric built up. In other words he helped pave the way for
an Obama presidency. He’s gone away and he should stay there.
