    Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites — for not publicly condemning Trump. Sigh. Why, why, why do these entrenched Republicans insist on picking public fights with their fellow GOPers? It doesn’t endear them to anyone but their own dwindling bases. And we know their bases are dwindling because try as they might, their candidates — their Marco Rubios, their Mitt Romneys, their Jeb Bushes — just couldn’t win against Trump. Yet six-plus months into Trump’s...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush criticised his former 2016 presidential primary foe President Donald Trump on Saturday over his first six months in office. Speaking at OZY Fest in New York, Bush slammed Trump’s chaotic style of governance and failure to focus on his policy goals. He singled out reports that Trump recently suggested that he may attempt to pre-pardon himself to preempt a federal investigation by independent counsel Robert Mueller. “You get disciplined when your team says, ‘No, Mr. President, let’s stay focused on these policy objectives,'” Bush said. “Don’t disparage people, don’t go after Mueller, don’t say you’re...

    In these summer dog days of the Trump presidency, good news is hard to come by, but in late June it was reported that the successor institution to William Kristol’s Project for a New American Century, the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), was shutting its doors for good. FPI was founded in 2009 to give the displaced neocons who had worked for President George W. Bush a platform from which to endlessly criticize the new Democratic administration and push for a continuation of Bush’s disastrous neocon foreign policy. (Some other neocons sheltered in place mostly inside the State Department and the...
  • It’s personal: 65% who disapprove of Trump do so because of his “personality,” not policy or job

    Now here’s an interesting result. Three presidents, three metrics — and in each case the biggest problem for each man was different than it was for the other two. See Also: Union files grievance over ‘goat crews’ clearing brush on university campus The silver lining for Trump is that, for all the criticism he draws in the media about pushing bad policy or doing a poor job as president, that’s not what sticks out to his critics. Overwhelmingly anti-Trumpers are anti mainly because they disdain Trump the man, not Trump the ideologue or Trump the C-in-C. For definitional purposes, “personality”...

    Nicole Wallace, MSNBC anchor and former aide to President George W. Bush, said President Trump’s tweets about his former officials amounts to “cyberbullying.” During an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Wallace provided her thoughts on Trump’s Twitter habit. “You can’t treat people on Twitter the way the president treats former officials of his government without getting kicked out of most private and public schools. I mean, it’s cyberbullying,” Wallace told Meyers. A number of House Republicans and other Republican politicians have expressed concern about Trump's tweeting recently, with many advising him to stop. Wallace added that Trump’s “conduct...

    Former Florida Gov. and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Thursday that he doesn’t think President Donald Trump obstructed justice. The charge of obstruction could apply if the President interfered with the FBI’s investigation into Russian tampering in the election by firing James Comey as director of the agency in charge of the probe. “No, I don’t, but who cares what I think,” Bush said when asked whether Trump obstructed justice at a conference at Boston College. “There is a process underway and the testimony today is not as relevant to me, in that regard, as Mr. (Special...

    For at least the third time, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to the current president as George W. Bush. Talking about her battles with Republicans over abortion, Pelosi said, “For decades I’ve served in Congress and for decades I’ve had to fight the Republicans’ opposition to birth control, contraception and family planning. “They do not believe in it,” Pelosi declared at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. “And a lot of those people voted for George— for, what’s his name?” she asked, apparently struggling to remember President Trump’s name.

    Manuel Antonio Noriega, the brash former dictator of Panama and sometime ally of the United States whose ties to drug trafficking led to his ouster in 1989 in what was then the largest American military action since the Vietnam War, has died. He was 83. President Juan Carlos Varela of Panama announced Mr. Noriega’s death on Twitter early Tuesday morning.

    It's been nearly seven months since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. Now, she’s re-emerging onto the national scene to give a window into her post-election life. New York magazine released on Friday next week's cover story, in which Clinton shares her reflections on the campaign, election night, sexism, James Comey, and slew of other topics. Below, excerpts from the the 8,000-word-plus article: ON TRUMP’S DECISION TO FIRE FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY: “I am less surprised than I am worried... Not that he shouldn’t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kent.) said on Wednesday that he believes President Trump has settled into the conventional Republicanism touted by rank-and-file party members, like Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). "What the administration is doing, not only am I comfortable with it, but I think the vast majority of Republicans in Congress feel that this is a right-of-center presidency, which is what we had hoped," McConnell told Reuters in an interview. "If you look at what the president is actually for, it strikes me as indistinguishable from what a President Jeb Bush or a President Marco Rubio...

    This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace. They represent evil and war.

    Las Vegas (CNN) — Jeb Bush just gave the political equivalent of an "I told you so" to President Donald Trump. "When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president," Bush said on Friday. "Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now," he said, speaking at the annual SALT hedge fund conference, which is headlined by bigwigs from the world of politics, finance, sports and entertainment. Bush said it appears the Trump administration is "living in the tyranny of the moment" instead of "executing on a clear agenda."(continued)

    It's been two weeks since George H.W. Bush was discharged from a Houston hospital after being treated for a mild case of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis, and his social calendar appears to be back on track. The 41st president, 92, and former first lady Barbara Bush, 91, had lunch with Arnold Schwarzenegger, according to a photo the former California governor posted Friday to his Twitter and Instagram accounts. "Had lunch with two of the greatest Americans," Schwarzenegger tweeted, along with the photo. "President Bush & Barbara have helped me, mentored me and inspired me to enter public service." Schwarzenegger had...

    I feel like I am beating a dead horse on tax cuts, but facts are extremely important if we want to get the economy growing. I get extremely aggravated when I read material like the following paragraph by Paul Waldmen in the Washington Post, because it is so demonstrably false. Of course the notion that tax cuts don’t pay for themselves is repeated so often that either the media has no idea that it is false or they don’t care. My guess is they don’t care because they have had almost 14 years to research the Bush tax cuts and...

    A Never Trump movement leader who once blamed then-candidate Donald Trump for violent riots in Chicago has miraculously infiltrated President Trump’s White House, Breitbart News has learned. Helen Aguirre Ferre, now the White House’s Director of Media Relations, previously very publicly—as an adviser to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s failed 2016 presidential campaign and as a GOP consultant after Bush dropped out of the race—bashed Trump repeatedly on the campaign trail, leading the Never Trump movement. Aguirre Ferre’s perhaps most egregious Never Trump comments came via Twitter on March 11, 2016, in a since-deleted Tweet in which she said now...

    Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is part of a group led by ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that has reached an agreement to purchase the Miami Marlins after submitting a bid of $1.3 billion, according to multiple media reports. According to the Miami Herald and Bloomberg, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has reached an agreement to sell the Marlins to the Bush-Jeter group after their bid won the auction ahead of other potential buyers for exclusive negotiating rights.

    Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has been admitted to a hospital in Houston for a mild case of pneumonia but "is going to be fine," his spokesman said on Tuesday. Jim McGrath, official media representative for the 92-year-old former president, said Bush was hospitalized on Friday "for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest." "It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved," McGrath added in a statement.

    That wiley W. It's like he knew. Do you remember George W. Bush's Axis of Evil? At one time, the Washington Post considered it to be part of the 4th most important State of the Union address. "States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any...
