You mean that when he got in President Bush's face and repeatedly poked his finger in his chest that it was the same as Jan Brewer handing a letter to Obama which invited him to lunch?

Definitely racist.

The only person who’d complain about Brewer is a leftist sycophant pansy who doesn’t know the history of anything in this country.

In the past, duels could end up settling an issue like this.

The only items on Bush’s reading lists in 07 was “Amnesty for Dummies” and “How to screw up so badly that your party loses control of Congress for Dummies.”

Some Body Language Expert will have to explain the action of President Bush leaning into the finger. Williams backed down when that happened.
My pappy always said, “Don’t spit in the well, you may have to drink the water.” The Left deserves gallons!

I thought it was fantastic that Brewer faced down Obama. Hard to believe that is going to run poorly in Arizona.

Oh, he definitely alpha male’d him.

That video makes me sick. Bush didn’t do everything right, but I’ve always felt protective of him for some reason. He just seemed sincere to me. I don’t feel the same about Newt, unfortunately.

Compare and contrast the puke Brian Williams sticking his finger in Bush's chest with his bowing before Obama.

You are believing the New York Times version of the Bush Presidency.

Riiiiight. Because Dubya’s pathological support for Amnesty - “See you at the bill signing” - or his big government nonsense in terms of of No Child Left Behind, Campaign Finance Reform, Medicare Part D etc etc was some made up fantasy by the liberal media (sarcasm off).

Just saw that Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters wrote up a post on this, and gave you a hat tip. Well done:

“Flashback 2006: NBC’s Brian Williams Points Finger At President Bush”

“As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Thursday, reacting with predictably similar disgust as the rest of the media to the picture of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer pointing her finger at Barack Obama, asked viewers, “Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this?”

Maybe he should have looked in the archives of interviews he did with George W. Bush...

...The video above was posted by a YouTube user named Stulz on January 21, 2007, and linked at Free Republic by Nachum about an hour ago.”

Bush simply said it was a complex problem involving border control, what to do with the illegals already in the country and the demands of industry for those willing to work. With what of that do you disagree. He never got around to a detailed solution. What would yours be?

or his big government nonsense in terms of of No Child Left Behind,

What he did there was add teeth to the existing bill. The existing bill said that if a school was failing for three years in a row they were on probation. If they failed for another two years in a row they would ..... ? Bush added that they would lose Federal funding until they were no longer failing. The Democrats hated that and delayed things until Bush was gone to change it. What was wrong about what Bush did?

Campaign Finance Reform,

I agree that he should have vetoed it but he thought the Supreme Court would find it unconstitutional. They surprisingly did not.

Medicare Part D

Surprisingly to most people, the first year Medicare part D was passed it saved Medicare $90,000,000,000 because he introduced free enterprise into the system and Wal*Mart and other large chain stores starting offering Medicare patients their drugs for $4.00 per prescription if they would accept generics on some of them. What is your complaint about that?

Their idea of “savings” is instead of the government spending say 500 billion dollars, with this legislation they’re only spending 300 billion. They “saved” two hundred billion. Fail.

I am against Social Security and Medicare although I participate in both. I think neither should ever have come into existence. As far as Bush is concerned, he introduced private enterprise into Medicare D putting the big drug companies and their retailers in competition for the business, so prices went down.

I pay over $30.00/month for Part D and in the 8 years I have had it my total drug purchases have been less than $20.00. So, I have spent $2,880 for less than a $20 benefit. Not a good investment.
