America Falls Back In Love
With George W. Bush

Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Stiles

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/3/2014 4:54:49 AM

No less a source than FIVE THIRTY EIGHT DOT COM reports that Greatest Living President George W. Bush is on the rebound: “Since April, Bush’s favorable rating has averaged 49.3 percent. His unfavorable rating has averaged 46.3 percent.” Not surprisingly, that’s a better rating than the fifth greatest living president:(Snip for chart)Bush’s emergence as a fantastic painter may have something to do with it. Unfortunately, the 22nd Amendment prohibits President Bush from seeking a third term in 2016.

GW still went along too much with the left. Reagan was a man and a President to admire because this man loved this country and loved Americans. He would have done more if the LEFT had not blocked him at every turn, but he hung in there and worked hard to get along with them as much as possible in order to turn this nation around and that he did! But today, the candidates are nothing like Reagan Reagan was a President like our fighting Presidents, like Washington.

GW was the first president to make a stand when the USA was violated.
Even Regan did not do so.
Under Bush we wone two wars in less than a week or so of combat.
Now that the libs are in power the USA has lost what it gained.
The only mistake GW made was to think the Middle East could become civilized. Staying there to try and help them is were we lost out.
Obama took what Bush did and turned it into a complete disaster.
Economically , the USA prospered the most in my lifetime and I am old!
If there was ever an honest , good guy POUS, it was GW.

When analyzing Bush don´t forget: Campaign Finance Reform, Roberts, No Child Left Behind, Medicare Prescription Spending, and blowing up the National debt. Also the wars that were left unfinished which resulted in the American communist party throwing away the lives of Iraqis´ and Afghanis´ that supported us. Bush only looks good because of who replaced him.

IMHO, he loves Mexicans more. He doesn´t even blink an eye at the fact that Americans are losing jobs, getting hours cut back, have less take home pay, yet are being asked to pay taxes to support more and more Illegal Aliens.
Give them food, medical care, housing, and educate their children hiring bilingual teachers, turn businesses upside down starting with press one for Spanish. Now some States for some idiotic reason are granting in state tuition to illegals. This is crazy! We are rewarding and enabling law breaking. This is not Mexico Norte and I don´t want it to be.

I liked Bush. I voted for him both times. Gore and Kerry would have been a heck of a lot worse. However, he never vetoed a single spending bill and he did nothing to secure the border with Mexico. He was the biggest spending President in US history until Obama came along.

Some of you people seem to be out of your minds.
George W. Bush is a good and decent man who loves his country. His presidency was tested like no other, for several reasons, the most important being that the Clintonites denied him a timely transition. That meant that his presidency was not sdequately staffed when he was faced with the attacks by the filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs.
I disagreed with him on several different issues, but I probably would disagree with Jesus himself if He came and ran for president.
We on the right must avoid seeking perfection, or we will wind up allowing another klown along the lines of the Kenyan pothead to be elected.

The man is a saint. I think since the demorats controlled both houses for the last 6 years of his presidency, he felt the people had spoken and allowed them to spend what they did. Besides, congress would override his vetoes, as they did the last two.

With W´s cooperation the media has been gradually elevating him because the left wants Jeb Bush to be the so-called Republican candidate. Because he´ll shut us up but good. George W. Bush has yet to apologize for destroying the US economy and lifetimes of work and sacrifice. Nor has he apologized for destroying the Republican Party and for handing the country to the radical left. He´s responsible for saddling the country with the ethanol industry per his 2005 and 2007 laws, the latter which even ordered the EPA to set up a non-public biofuel commodity trading exchange which invited millions in fraud. Ethanol has raised global food prices, is worse for the environment, and is said to have caused starvation and worse. Even the UN and World Bank have asked the US to stop ethanol, but the banks like it. Jeb Bush has been very big on ethanol as well. The father, HW hand picked his EPA admin. from WWF. The word love in context with the Bushes is ill placed.

George Bush was and is a decent man. He said what he meant and meant what he said. When Bush spoke, he told the truth. The problem with Bush was that his decency prevented him from raking the democrats over the coals. His decency prevented him from defending his administration and his actions. His decency allowed the press to drive his poll numbers into the dirt. Bush was and still is one of the nicest most likable people on the planet. Unfortunately, nice people don´t know how to fight in the mud with opponents who will wiz on your leg and insist that its raining. "Nice" people would point out that the opponent is a lying sack of dog squeeze.

I recently visited the GWB library @ SMU. I expected it to be surrounded by rows of American flags, spotlights, walkways lined with quotes. Instead, I eventually found a very plain and unpretentious building sited off to the side of the campus. Not a single student I asked along the way could provide walking directions to it and many were unaware of it´s presence.
Inside, I noticed the lack of signs, the lack of spin...the low key and honest steadiness of the place. The amazing library has somehow captured the spirit of the man and most visitors were commenting that they realize now how much they miss and love the man.

I never fell out of love with him --or Laura.

I can remember a single time seeing Laura deplane AF1 wearing short-shorts, a wrinkled blouse and tennis shoes. Not a single time.

For whatever "mistakes" he may have made --and I´m sure they are many, I can´t remember a single time during his eight years thinking to myself, That Man Hates This Nation And Her People, And Is Out To Destroy Us.

Not a single time.

I can´t remember a single time during any nomination he made to any position in government, That Man Just Nominated A Communist.

Not a single time.

I can´t remember a single time during his eight years, seeing a photo of him giving the middle finger to the nation.

Not a single time.

You get the picture. Right?

President Bush´s rating has always been high here, too. The last 24 years summarized: Eight years of liberal purgatory, followed by eight years of Dubya (Oil on Troubled Waters), followed by eight years of raging hell.

I miss the decorum and ´´cleanliness´´ of the Dubya years. I miss all the little updates his people sent over his signature. Yeah, it was fodder for ´true-believers´ but I kept every one. I only recently decided to shred all of it and keep a couple of Christmas cards.

Ratings only matter when related to the sitting president. We can´t ever have Dubya back.

Compared to barack obama, GWB was Superman. The extra money he spent was mostly on national defense and therefore justifiable. The action that started the economic downturn at the end of his second term was named Dodd-Frank, hardly a Bush or a Republican action. We were lucky to have him around on 9/11/01. Can you imagine if obama had been at the helm on that day? I couldn´t.

Decency and honesty are their own rewards.

Folks will remember him for his good things far longer than some other recent office holders.

In time, even the Democrats will say nice things about him, if only to denigrate the conservatives of the future era.

I loved "GW" until he tried to sell amnesty. Unfortunately I have been fighting the phrase "There is not a dimes worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats" since the last two years he was in office, to no avail.

Nothing said above changes the fact that Bush was a 100 times the President and patriot the current holder of the office is.

There is one thing that a lot of people here are forgetting. President Bush was a true Christian. And as such, he tried his best to follow the teachings of Jesus. Yes, it created some problems for the country. But a true Christian would not be able to be a hard nose Christian. Think of the "turn the other cheek" phrase.

Another thing. I´ve read a few (very few) articles where President Busch and the ever lovely Laura have gone many times to visit the wounded military men and women and spend a few minutes with them. All without any fanfare or media coverage, or running around shouting "hey look at me and how good I am". He is too good a person to do that.

The thing I loved the most about President Bush was that, in the nearly 50 years that Muslims have been terrorizing the planet and getting away with it, he was the first US president who stood up and said, "We´re not going to take this anymore." For that alone he gets my undying gratitude and admiration. I just wish he could´ve found it in his heart to extend that resolve to his plitical enemies, as well.

#22 says it best and I would click "Like" a thousand times if Ms. Lucianne wouldn´t object.

All I know is that I felt safe and secure when Dubya was President. I felt safe enough to laugh and enjoy life. Now, even though I enjoy life since I moved from Michigan to Florida, I don´t laugh much any more. Only when there is a comparison such as the one #22 has posted can we begin to see/know what we have lost.

The picture of Barry giving the middle finger is all anyone needs to know what he thinks about America and his intentions for US.

President George W. Bush was a great leader. When our Muslim enemies brought down the World Trade Center he took the fight to their homes. The Muslims are still paying the price for their attack to this very day. That Obama then turned out to be a Muslim sympathizer is the American people´s fault. We slept at ease with W.

During the eight years we were under Bush´s care the Communization of America by the radical left-wing Democratic Party - so relentless under Carter, the Clintons, and the Hussein Obamas - came to a halt. Without this respite who knows what our country would look like today.

Luvya Dubya. I am proud to have donated to your campaigns. Thank you for your service dear President, and enjoy your retirement.

Posts 11 and 12 summarize things nicely.

I look back on those years and the contested election of 2000 and think God was looking out for us. I wonder if, knowing what lay in store,he took pity and decided: "I´ll give you people one more chance."

Maybe D wasn´t a King David--more of a Hezekiah-- but spurning him brought Herod. I pray that will be lesson enough.

Re. #15. Most corrupt American president ever: Obama.

Bush would not fight the democrats which gave us Obama. The Republicans after all this time still do not know how to contend with ´In Your Face´ Democrats. It was under him that the republicans tried to look more like Democrats.

I would place GW Bush over Obama, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, or Carter. Think he was better than his father, Ford, or Nixon. Still like Reagan better.

In spite of all that, GW Bush left alot to be desired. His nation building policy in Iraq and Afghanistan was largely a failure because neither government can stand on its own two feet. Mediocre economy. Complacency.

#4, if we won two wars I missed ´em. Certainly not in Afghanistan. More than a decade later we´re still fumbling around quelling Islamists - ten American dead there this year. If that´s winning, I wouldn´t want to win many more. Of course, that´s Obama´s watch. In 2008 we lost 155 Americans to hostilities there, seven years after "we won." Anyone want to fight another like that? I sure don´t.

Remembering the Bush years. In my heart, with great pride. In my mind, with some bitterness.

He was damned by the left and the press from the start. Off to a hobbled start because of Gore, then 7 months later hit by terrorists. On 9/12 we had a united country, about a week later, the left started the dissension. Rallying for Afghanistan was easy, Iraq was a little tougher but he followed through. I saved clips of the rats weighing in on his side, even PIAPS saying that from her perch of FLOTUS, Saddam must go. Later they all turned on him and America.

I remember staying mostly quiet the first five years when lefties belittled him. One day on a shuttle bus two women were Bush bashing and they turn to me and I lit into them. I decided to no longer stay silent. On different occasions when strangers thought they could share their dislike of him they were met with an unexpected assault from me. After I defended Katrina, a stolen election, both wars, and his mangling of the English language, someone would pat me on the back. But nobody would jump in.

Now I do battle with some on the right. I am so tired of the word “amnesty” being thrown around, GWB was wise enough to see that we had a problem that needed a discussion – will anyone post the credible source where he promoted “amnesty”? That word is a tired here as “racist” is in the press, and when I hear it, I leave the discussion.

The last three Bush years I battled alone out there, but I found like thinkers here. And I wonder, since you’re that brave at your keyboards, don’t you ever get out where I can see you?

He spent too much but he had a strong foreign policy and he was a great CinC . . . oh and he cut taxes lowering the deficit. Obama upon assuming office cancelled those tax cuts and did in the lowered deficits. Bush´s last year in office (before the TARP) the deficit was $160 billion. Since then they´ve been in the trillions. All and all he was better than most presidents I´ve lived through save Reagan and maybe Eisenhower.

Pick a few of the comments. Try #16 and #31 for instance. These looked for purity in GW Bush and walked a way when they did not find perfection. To you two and similar others: you are the ones that gave us a Democrat controlled Congress under Bush. You are the ones that gave us Barack Obama.

You think you are so smart. You are not. You border on being traitors, pitching your temper tantrums in demanding your view of Republican purity. You proved your point and gave us the mess we have been in since the 2006 election. Thanks for nothing.

Ah, mention Bush and the usual suspects are at the barricades, yet again, w/their tag team posts. What constantly resonates through all these infantile rationalizations for incompetence and all the excuse mongering; is how utterly devoid they are of the cold reality of either economics or history. In fact, w/neither narrative nor record, the Bush fans predictably conjure up stuff; like the wars he won or the industries he didn´t bail out! Why of course. We are incessantly told that Bush was a good man, as if a nice guy equates to a good man. Perhaps, but suggest the Almighty render that verdict. What we emphatically know is that he was never a great man; in the mold of Disraeli, Von Bismarck, TR, MacArthur, Churchill etc. For great nations to remain great they must produce great men who rise to the occasion at their hour of need and not an usher for Obama.

I agree with you on that. Bush ushered in Obama after paving the way for a complete government take over of our freedoms. Oh, he is a likable guy but you must really look hard to not see grandpa Prescott´s agenda in the making with everything that transpired in his presidency, some would even argue including CIA groomed Osama.

Ah, love is in the air. You can tell because both brains and reason have left the room. There are numerous egregious errors of fact, about what Bush did or didn´t do, so breathtaking as to be willful, and deserving a retort but one stands out. It was asserted that ´Bush was our first POTUS to make a stand (against Islam); even Reagan didn´t do so.´ Really?
* In 1801, Thomas Jefferson, ordered the U.S.Navy to bombard the ports of Algiers, Tripoli and Tunis; sending a message to the Ottoman (Barbary) Corsairs, that any further interference w/our ships would trigger war and an invasion.
* In 1981, in response to Qaddafi´s chronic belligerence in the Mediterranean, Reagan ordered the U.S. Navy to take out the Libyan
Airfields ringing the Gulf of Sidra.
* In 1986, again in response to Qaddafi, who had ordered the bombing of a Berlin Nightclub frequented by U.S Soldiers; Reagan ordered the U.S, Air Force to destroy Qaddafi´s Air Force.
Reality is that if Reagan had not thrown a life preserver to Bush in ´80 w/the VP slot; we wouldn´t have heard another word from any of the Bushes.
P.S. Truth isn´t hate speech!!!!!

Scooter Libby. The inability to respond to the financial meltdown of 2007. Bailing out industries that deserved to fail.

We have how many illegal, undocumented immigrants because W did what to resolve the problem?
NAFTA benefit whom?

We have another Bush promoting a nationalization of curriculum because No Child Left Behind was such a success.

The mediocrity of this inarticulate figurehead trying to resolve daddy issues by governing by avoiding confrontation, avoiding a veto pen and creeping toward globalization merits discussion and acknowledgement as always by the brilliant 48/51.
Loyalty to the governing wing of the republican party begs for continuation of the cronyism and political monopoly that rewards donors at the expense of the middle class.

What´s not to love?

Still, it was nice to have a good man and a patriot in the office. We don´t have many left, and absolutely none on the side that is gaining voters.

And their women are worse.

Totally agree with #47. I sure hope the sourpusses who want a perfect president are loving living under the Obama regime, and I feel sorry for their families. I´m sure they fall far short and disappoint the purist posters.

The vile attitudes toward conservatives within the GOP are part of the reason the GOP is weak and dying. Just as they criticized Obamabots for blaming Bush for any and everything, they do exactly the same to principled conservatives. That is, the principled (Tea Party) conservatives who handed the House of Representatives to Republicans.

The View’s Bloody Backstage Politics:
How Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie
Lost Control of Their Show

The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat. When ABC’s long-popular daytime program The View returns in September for its 18th season, creator Barbara Walters will no longer have an ownership stake, and longtime executive producer Bill Geddie won’t be at the helm. “He won’t be back,” a person familiar with the inner workings of the show told The Daily Beast, confirming one of the major changes--including the enforced departures of panelists Sherri Shepherd

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters. (The New York Times was scandalized at the time, though I strangely can´t find their editorial calling for Kathleen

NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

Jose Antonio Vargas and

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
