    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

    President George W. Bush on Thursday issued a thinly veiled warning about the state of American democracy under the current president, arguing that "bigotry seems emboldened" and politics is "more vulnerable" to conspiracy theories. Speaking at the George W. Bush Institute's "The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, in the World," a national forum in New York City, the former president warned that the trend in Western countries of moving away from democratic confidence and global engagement is seeping into American culture. Parts of Europe, Bush said, have developed an "identity crisis" as a result of economic stagnation, youth unemployment and...

    Former President George W. Bush appears to have discovered a new pastime: virtue-signaling. On Thursday, the 43rd president piously delivered a full beat down on President Trump and the populist and economic nationalist movement that elected him. Bush even traveled from Dallas to New York City to deliver it—just to make sure that nobody in Manhattan missed his message, which basically amounted to: I’m a good guy, unlike you-know-who. So look: I just dumped on Donald Trump! Please like me now, finally! Yes, this is the same Bush who kept silent during the Obama years. But now that a Republican...

    George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that 'bullying and prejudice' has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices.

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that "bigotry seems emboldened" in the modern U.S. He also warned that the U.S. needs to accept "globalization" and reject "white supremacy." He criticized the “governing class” without specifically mentioning President Trump. "Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts" in recent years, he observed during a speech for the George W. Bush Institute. "Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication."

    George W. Bush heaped praise on Jimmy Kimmel for his anti-Trump opening monologue at the Oscars on Thursday night, telling the comedian enthusiastically that his performance was “damn good”. In a rare and lighthearted television appearance, Bush steered clear of mentioning the current president by name but was led into several subtle jabs at him by his mischievous host. Among the slights was a compliment for Kimmel’s decidedly anti-Trump debut at the Academy Awards. “I saw your opening. I thought it was damn good!” he enthused, adding later that Kimmel was a “funny guy”. […] But Bush didn’t stop there...

    Former President George W. Bush is releasing a new book early next year featuring portraits he painted of nearly 100 veterans who were wounded during his tenure as commander in chief. Bush wrote on Facebook that he's spent several months painting the portraits of 98 wounded warriors "who were injured carrying out my orders."

    A newly released YouGov study aimed at surveying American attitudes towards socialism reveals just how little Americans know about communism and events surrounding the history of communist and socialist regimes. Among the study’s most alarming findings, one in four Americans (26 percent) believe that more people were killed under George W. Bush than under notorious Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. […] The survey focused largely millennials and found that they are severely lacking in knowledge when it comes to communism and its bloody history. The poll shows 25 percent of millennials have a favorable view of Vladimir Lenin and 42 percent...

    A member of the Hillary Clinton campaign praised former President George W. Bush on immigration, according to leaked emails from campaign chairman John Podesta’s account. As the campaign tried to figure out whether to let former President Bill Clinton speak on immigration, his chief of staff Tina Flournoy took a minute to praise Bush. “43 is soooooo good on it,” Flournoy wrote in a March 2015, email. “Really good. At least he has been when I’ve seen him talk about it with 42.” The rest of the email chain is devoted to whether to risk Clinton talking about immigration and...

    [As the man child's occupancy of the Oval Office] enters its final months, more Americans still blame George W. Bush than Obama for the nation's economic ills. When asked how much they blame each president for current economic problems, 64% of Americans say Bush deserves a "great deal" or "moderate amount" of blame, compared with 50% for Obama.

    ndiana Republican Dan Coats is retiring from the Senate for the second time. Democrats now have a faint hope of claiming the seat in 2016, but Coats’ election five years ago dashed constitutional conservatives’ hopes. [SNIP] In fact, Hostettler was one of just three conservative Republicans to vote against the war. (The other two were Ron Paul and Jimmy Duncan.) He later wrote a book about his antiwar vote, explaining his doubts about the WMD intelligence. [SNIP] If Hostettler had been the GOP nominee against incumbent Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh, it would have pit a Republican who voted against the...

    The Guantanamo Bay detainee who U.S. authorities say is responsible for killing Americans was released during President George W. Bush’s time in office, according to a senior Obama administration official. “Less than five percent of detainees released since January 2009 are confirmed of re-engaging in terrorism and, of those, none are assessed to have killed Americans,” the official told the Washington Examiner. […] Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said the “clear admission” by the Obama administration of the killings shows that the president’s efforts to close the facility are “detrimental to our security.” …

    Conservative Review ^ | October 26th, 2015 | Steve Deace
    At long last, George W. Bush, the man who left the Republican Party in tatters as he left the White House, has some coattails. His loose lips at a recent fundraiser last week about fellow Texan Ted Cruz have given the GOP presidential hopeful an invaluable shot of gravitas. And that’s saying something considering how Bush’s own brother, Jeb, has been running away from his family legacy by changing his surname to ‘exclamation point.’ But who wouldn’t rather declare punctuation as kin rather than a former claimant to the White House in this populist uprising disguised as an election? Nothing...

    After George W. Bush attacked Ted Cruz over the weekend, and Karl Rove followed up with attacks today, Conservative Review’s Editor in Chief Mark Levin dedicated the first hour of his program to going through the ways the Bush establishment (Bushtablishment) has repeatedly squandered conservative victories. Levin went through how the Bushtablishment squandered two historic victories by Ronald Reagan by squishing. Levin explained that by embracing liberal policies the Bushtablishment GOP kept losing elections. Listen in as Levin explains how Bushtablishment governance lead to the Republican Party losing the congressional majority in 2006, which gave the nation the Obama years....

    nside a sleek Denver condominium, George W. Bush let a hundred donors to his brother’s campaign in on a secret. Of all the rival Republican candidates, there is one who gets under the former president’s skin, who he views as perhaps Jeb Bush’s most serious rival for the party’s nomination. It isn’t Donald Trump, whose withering insults have sought to make Jeb pay a political price for his brother’s presidency. It also isn’t Marco Rubio, Jeb’s former understudy who now poses a serious threat to his establishment support. “I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said Sunday night, according to...

    President George W.

    German media had some enthusiastic words for Jeb Bush after a visit to Berlin last week and his presidential candidacy announcement on Monday, but the press still had trouble distancing him from his less popular brother. […] Jeb Bush has certainly caught the German media’s attention, perhaps more than other Republican candidates due to his family’s history with Germany. “He seems to be getting a lot of press here. Germans tend to prefer him more than some of the others, I believe,” Thomas Leiser, chairman of Republicans Overseas Germany, told The Local. […] The press in Germany also were abuzz...
