  • In-Depth Interview with Producer/Director Peter Schnall (Pres Bush on 9/11: MUST hear)

    Nat'l Geographic Channel/Polioptics ^ | 8-12-11 | Also Josh King for Polioptics
    George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview Director/Producer Peter Schnall recently sat down with Polioptics hosts Adam Belmar and Josh King to discuss the extraordinary opportunity of working on this film. Known for living a very private life since leaving office, President Bush has only commented publicly on rare occasions. For Schnall to be able to sit down with the president for over four hours speaking candidly, a true conversation with no notes or previously-delivered questions, was quite an honor and privilege as a filmmaker. Schnall shares his experience documenting history, how he was able to land the opportunity and...
  • Did Waterboarding Just Get Vindicated?

    The view from (some) on the right in regard to the Bin Laden news is: waterboarding is vindicated. One GOP Congressman tweeted: Wonder what President Obama thinks of water boarding now? The reason is that there's a direct line to be traced from the big news to data collected at GITMO -- data that was almost certainly collected under duress. Here's the key interrogation note regarding a courier going to Abottabad: Rest @ link
  • Bush Recalls Graphic Pro-Life Moment: Mom Showed Me Her Miscarried Fetus in a Jar

    Over the last week, excerpts of George W. Bush’s Monday-night interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer have shown a candid former president. But if a new excerpt obtained by the New York Post is any indication, the George W. Bush we may see tonight isn’t going to hold much back, and it could get graphic. According to the Post, Bush will recall a detailed story about what set him down the path to becoming pro-life. That story includes his mother, Barbara, preserving and showing a young George one of her miscarried fetuses. From the Post:

    I’ve written about this before … but with the release of the WIKILEAKS documents, even Wired magazine acknowledges that US troops found chemical and biological weapons in Iraq. But don’t worry; if you liberals keep telling yourself “Bush Lied”… you’ll get through this. By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But for years afterward, WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins, and uncover weapons of mass destruction In...

    George W. Bush has been the presidential equivalent of a punching bag. Before he left office, he was vilified for the war in the Middle East, the credit crisis and the housing crisis. Democrats ran against his persona and policies in the 2008 election and successfully painted the Republican nominee for President, Arizona Sen. John McCain, as his Doppelganger. He was radioactive, and even Republicans viewed him as such. But these days, though he's seemingly blamed for everything but bad weather by the left, Bush is making a comeback. As President Obama's approval numbers slide, people are starting to see...
  • In Bush v. Obama, Bush Wins in a Rout

    At a fund-raising event for Democrats in Dallas, where Bush now lives, Obama said the former president's "disastrous" policies had driven the U.S. economy into the ground and turned budget surpluses into deficits. Obama defended his repeated references to Bush's policies, saying they were necessary to remind Americans of the weak economy he inherited from Bush in January 2009. "The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?" Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring...

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. — For months now, Jeb Bush has been listening as President Obama blasts his older brother’s administration for the battered economy, budget deficits and even the lax oversight of oil wells. “It’s kind of like a kid coming to school saying, ‘The dog ate my homework,’ ” Mr. Bush, this state’s former governor, said over lunch last week at the Biltmore Hotel. “It’s childish. This is what children do until they mature. They don’t accept responsibility.” *snip* “But he really seems like he’s getting caught up in what people are writing about him.” “I mean, good God,...

    Though it may be an unpopular sentiment to some, I really do find myself missing George W. Bush. There is no sarcasm in that statement; no hidden slander. I genuinely find a vacancy in the world where President Bush used to be, and for very specific reasons. I voted for Bill Clinton twice. In subequent years I came to realize the kind of creature he was, what he did - and I don't mean Lewinsky - and the kind of no-conscience reptiles he and his wife were. And are. I remember experiencing rage at the election of George W. Bush...

    UK Telegraph ^ | 11-7-09 | Toby Harnden
    Barack Obama's reaction to bad news is to play it so cool that Americans yearn for a bit more drama - and some even for his predecessor, writes Toby Harnden in Washington. ### During the election campaign, Barack Obama's cool detachment was a winning quality, the "No Drama Obama" a welcome contrast with the "Mr Angry" John McCain, never mind the hot-headed "I'm the decider" President George W Bush. A year into his presidency, however, Mr Obama seems a curiously bloodless president. If he experiences passion, he seldom shows it. It is often anyone's guess as to whether an event...

    An investigation into e-mails that seemed to have disappeared from the Bush White House has resulted in restoration of 22 million of the missing messages and a deal to uncover what could be millions of other e-mails that allegedly fell through cracks in the archiving system, two nonprofit groups said Monday. However, an untold number of official e-mails from President George W. Bush's era will probably never be recovered because it would be extremely costly to do so, lawyers involved in lawsuits brought by the National Security Archive and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said. "While we have...

    Former President George W. Bush, in his first open-to-the press appearance, said that as the world's economies recover, they should resist the temptation to replace free markets with government spending. Bush said he acted to funnel billions to banks because of a crisis situation. His action, he said, prevented a worldwide Depression. (Full quotes to come.) *** UPDATE *** NBC's Andrew Gross adds Bush's quotes: "The decision last fall was one of the most difficult of my presidency," Bush said in a speech on his vision for his presidential institute at Southern Methodist University.

    Media Bias: Veteran reporter, author and commentator Bernard Goldberg reports that when CBS News did its fake National Guard story on George W. Bush avoiding service in Vietnam, it knew it was a lie.It's a liberal urban legend that Bush used the influence of his father and his father's friends to land a cushy position in the Texas National Guard to avoid service in Vietnam. The Democrats would run John Kerry as a hero in the war, and CBS News was all too eager to help with Mary Mapes producing a "60 Minutes II" segment in September 2004 charging exactly...

    Thunderous Okla. Applause Greets Bush on July 4 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: July 4, 2009 WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) -- Former President George W. Bush spoke amid thunderous applause in a rural Oklahoma town to celebrate the Fourth of July, calling the U.S. the ''greatest nation on the face of the earth.'' Bush was given six standing ovations as he spoke Saturday inside a remodeled rodeo arena in Woodward, a town of about 12,000 residents in northwest Oklahoma. About 9,200 tickets were sold for the event, which would be the biggest crowd for Bush since he left office in January....
