    Many of us remember the Fake but Accurate assertion made by Dan Rather in response to the millions of Americans who questioned the CBS claim that George Bush had run away from his duty to serve in Vietnam. In this October Surprise of 2004, it didnt matter to Rather that the documents he put forward to accuse the president of cowardice were proven to be fraudulent. For according to the CBS talking head, it was simply a fact that George Bush had shirked his responsibility to serve, evidence to the contrary be damned. The claim, Rather argued, was accurate, even...
  • George W. Bush on Trump presidency: 'I don't like the racism'

    Former President George W. Bush is criticizing President Donald Trump's first month in office, though he remains optimistic about the future. "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated," Bush told People magazine. "Nobody likes that." . . . "I didn't feel like speaking out before because I didn't want to complicate the job and I'm not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up." The Bush Center programs include immigration ceremonies, AIDS prevention programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women.

    Dear GWB You are an idiot for helping a media that tore you down. You are also a coward who couldnt even be bothered to defend yourself when you were president, (I defended you. I wish I could take it back now, you didn't deserve to be defended) Further evidence of your cowardice -- you couldn't be bothered to criticise the terrible obama presidency. But now, now that Americas very democracy is hanging by a thread, you have the nerve to come and out and attack the only person holding it together? FUGWB, Please go crawl under a rock and...

    Didn't think he was the "true elected president". Unprecedented, huh? Not only was it John Lewis who picked the fight with Donald Trump - regardless of what you keep hearing to the contrary - but he pulled a fast one on you with the claim that hes never done it before. First time Lewis has ever missed an inauguration since he was elected to Congress in 1986, is that right? Totally unprecedented, and all because of the unique awfulness of Donald Trump, yes?

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    Larry Elder responds to a caller twice in regards to the "United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441" and the Iraq War. Firstly, the caller thinks we have to get permission from the U.N. to begin with. This is false (see: http://tinyurl.com/zjw7v7l). Secondly, Bush did more than his predecessor or Obama did in regards to his activity in the Middle-East with both Congress and the United Nations.

    'Where's the outcry against Obama's wars?' If you were paying attention during the Bush years, youll no doubt remember Cindy Sheehan. After losing her son in Iraq, she became the lefts anti-war focal point. Almost overnight, she found herself a staple of the 24-hour news nets and a regular Sunday morning guest. She camped out in front of Bushs home, marched, spoke wherever possible, and never missed an opportunity to decry Bushs imperial war for oil. Now, in a new op-ed titled I led the anti-war movement against George W. Bush 11 years ago. Hillary Clinton is hardly better, Sheehan...

    CNN ^ | 7/13/2016 | Dan Merica
    Former President Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will appear together in Little Rock on Thursday during the graduation of a leadership program launched by the duo in 2014. The graduation of the 61 members from the 2016 Class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program will feature a discussion with Bush, Clinton and Tony Blair, the former British Prime Minister. The 42nd and 43rd presidents have a close relationship despite past political tensions. Clinton defeated Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, in 1992. And in 2000 George W. Bush ran for president promising to bring "honor and dignity to the...

    Since 1992, Republicans have been smarting their loss by claiming that Ross Perot stole enough votes to elect Bill Clinton. Even as much as the loyal opposition seeks to demystify the winner's victory, the Perot-elected-Clinton lie has only served to force the GOP to adopt pro-immigrant pro-big-gov narratives. Perot was more liberal than Slick Willie himself. http://www.ontheissues.org/Ross_Perot.htm He was pro-abortion, pro-homo, and for tax hikes on fossil fuel, the driver of American jobs. Bush I's job approvals in 1992 were as low than Jimmy Carter's in 1980 http://spectator.org/63682_bushioisie-wrong-ross-perot-didnt-cost-ghw-bush-white-house-1992/ http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx Of course Bush was 1000x better than Surrender Monkey Dhimmi, but...

    I see where Hillary blamed current voter anger and unrest on the George W. Bush recession, (some things never seem to get old);And Trump warned that were headed towards another yuuge recession. Should that actually happen it will be blamed on George W. Bush too, as were not allowed to blame anything on Americans First Real Black President, or, by extension, any Democrat. To do so would clearly consist of a racist microaggresion which in case you havent noticed is the new shorthand for the old dog whistle. While the dog whistle proved useful in the past 2 presidential...

    Whatever it portends for Jeb Bush's struggling 2016 White House bid, George W. Bush's return to the campaign trail is bad news for the Republican Party. The former president and former Florida governor headlined a joint rally Monday in South Carolina. The state helped George H.W. Bush finish off Bob Dole in 1988 and set Bush 43 on his path to the nomination after a disappointing loss in New Hampshire in 2000. Jeb is hoping the third time's a charm...

    Vox ^ | 2/7/16 | German Lopez
    Donald Trump doesn't like being interrupted. At the Republican debate on Saturday, when Jeb Bush broke into one of Trump's answers, Trump turned around and shushed Bush. This was a continuation of how Trump has long handled Bush, often verbally bullying the Florida governor and characterizing him as weak. But this was also during a particularly tense conversation over eminent domain, in which the government takes over private property for other purposes. Trump defended the practice - specifically, calling it necessary to build roads and other infrastructure.

    Less than three months before the kick-off Iowa caucuses, there is growing anxiety bordering on panic among Republican elites about the dominance and durability of Donald Trump and Ben Carson and widespread bewilderment over how to defeat them. Party leaders and donors fear nominating either man would have negative ramifications for the GOP ticket up and down the ballot, virtually ensuring a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency and increasing the odds that the Senate falls into Democratic hands.

    Psyche. It looks like the Oval Office! But of course, it’s the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. This is where a group of veterans were getting a tour on Veterans Day this morning when, much to their surprise, President Bush 43 himself popped and personally greeted the surprised and very pleased group. I really don’t need to say a lot about this, but I just want to remind you: For all the prattling from the left and their media mouthpieces about how Bush cavalierly put our fighting men and women in harm’s way, the truth is that the...

    Former President George H.W. Bush has moderated his views on same-sex marriage since seeking the White House, according to a new biography. Bush said in his audio diary before his 1988 presidential campaign that Americans "didn't want same-sex marriage codified," according to The New York Times. But after he served as an official witness at a 2013 same-sex wedding, he sent his biographer, Jon Meacham, a note to clarify that his views had changed....

    One of the benefits of being 91 is you don’t have to hold back anymore—you can say what you want. And in a new biography, former President George H.W. Bush tells Jon Meacham just what he thinks about Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld’s work in his son’s administration, as reported by Fox News and The New York Times. “He just became very hard-line and very different from the Dick Cheney I knew and worked with,” the elder Bush said of the man who served as his secretary of defense. “Just iron-ass. His seeming knuckling under to the real hard-charging guys...

    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...

    This Trump brag line goes like this: He had the vision and foresight to oppose the Iraq War ahead of the invasion in 2003. His opposition was so vocal, and his reach so great, that the White House approached him and asked him to tone it down. Really? We examined the slim evidence. The Facts At The Fact Checker, we place the burden of proof on the speaker. Trump has not responded to repeated requests by us or other media outlets for proof of his early opposition to the invasion. Military action began on March 20, 2003. An extensive review...

    Election '16: Donald Trump charges that President George W. Bush "knew in advance" of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Promoting the Obama birther conspiracy was bad enough, but this is beyond the pale. There may not be a historical precedent to a major presidential candidate accusing his own party's last president of knowingly allowing an enemy to attack America, killing thousands. Negligence bordering on treason: This is the charge Donald Trump is making against George W. Bush. Trump told CNN on Tuesday, "George Tenet, the CIA Director, knew in advance that there would be an attack, and he said so...
