George W. slams Trumpism,
without mentioning president by name

Politico, by Edward Isaac Dovere

Original Article

Posted By:viola, 10/19/2017 1:04:11 PM

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

And yet he was quiet during the eight years of Obama´s Constitutional atrocities.

He stood quietly as BHO systematically attempted to destroy America.

Eight years of Obama trashing the Constitution and destroying whatever improvements had been made in race relations and Bush said not a thing. Yet, he has no problem disparaging our current president. I have lost all respect for Bush, he lacked fight against the Dems while president and now attacks the president of his own party. He is becoming in the McCain category, can´t get over President Trump beating Jeb, the anointed one of the GOPe. Bush should just go back to the silence he displayed during Obama´s time because he adds nothing but giving the media talking points. Pathetic.

Actually, I didn´t detect the "unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism" in this summary of Bush´s speech. If that´s what Bush was really saying, he´s been spending too much time palling it up with that idiot McCain.

I beg the indulgence of my betters on this site but I have to ask....or say...

It has crossed my mind on more than one occasion ...is it possible that this is all ...staged? Contrived? In essence a shell game? Pardon my mental wanderings into the land of the conspiracy theory but...it all just seems too convenient. That perhaps these outbursts by "republicans" are manufactured behind the scenes in order to manipulate stronger support for President Trump.

Politics is a chess game after all and there is a form of magician-ship along with gamesmanship. Sometimes I smile to myself and wonder if President Trump has some tacit agreement with the republicans who grumble publicly about him to stir the people. He is a showman and very clever.

OK you can now laugh at me but somehow it does not match up...why would Bush be vocal now when President Trump has never said a word about him and be silent all the years of Ozero´s reign of ineptitude. When you think about it, it just does not make sense and it seems there is more here than meets the eye. There is something about it that is off.

Many thanks George W for a huge expansion of our debt, increasing the size of the federal government, not protecting our borders, giving control of Congress for two years by the democrat party communists, and most of all heart felt thanks for playing a major role in giving us the dictatorship of Barack Obama who nearly destroyed our country.

Now go back to producing your mediocre paintings, and riding a bike, and please keep your elitist, swampy opinions to yourself.

I happened to see President Bush this morning. Always liked Bush, and felt that he was nearly destroyed by democrat party lies, which he failed to counter. Although people are interpreting his comments today as critical of President Trump, I feel that they could as easily be an observation of the disgusting political climate driven by liberals and abetted by liberal republicans.

When Bush welcomed the Clintons back into the White House which they had desecrated for 8 years, I knew the game was over. The Clintons had scandalized the entire world with their greed and immorality. Instead of investigating and prosecuting them, all the Bushes kissed their bxtts and gave Hillary and Bubba a complete pass and path to multi-millions of illegal fund raising. Please, please all you Bushes go far away for good and take your other friends, the Obamas with you!!

1. Politico is interpreting.
2. Bush is a known liar, especially to the left.
3. Trump has attacked him, throwing him in with the others who wasted lives and trillions on foreign wars not won.
4. Like McCain, he knows he will get good press for this.
5. Does he have a new book coming out, or is selling more (yuck) paintings?

For eight years G.W. Bush stood there with his mouth open as the liberal and socialist Democrats trashed his personal and professional reputation, and his political policies and programs, deep into the gutter, without Bush uttering any effective response.

That is one of the reasons that Barack Obama was elected. During the eight years of Obama it is clear that Bush never said a word even as Obama removed the military from Iraq which greatly helped ISIS takenover a portion of Iraq. Bush has been hobknobbing with the Clintons and it is a pretty sure thing that Bush voted for Hillary Clinton, especially since President Trump dispatched Jeb Bush in the presidential primaries.

It’s better if Bush stays retired and mum.

#12, I don´t believe this is a ruse to garner support for Trump. This is fear. The GOPe is on the brink of a meltdown because they fear the will of the people. It is not that they hate Trump. They hate that he has given voice to the great unwashed masses. He championed our desires and for that they fear he just may succeed and they can´t let that happen. He is like a wrecking ball and is headed straight for the heart of the swamp. All the globalists have worked for for decades will become as naught if he succeeds. Never doubt that the Bushes are card carrying members of the NWO. If we are to save this Republic, it will be because of this President. He understands what is happening and he is determined to stop it. My fear is that there is no length they will not go to to destroy him. They cannot allow him to win. Pray for his safety because they are that evil.

#12, I smile all the time when President Trump outsmarts everyone around him, but I believe it is instinctual with him.

The Never Trumpers, including George W, would never do anything to help him. However, they are too stupid to realize that every time they open their mouths against him, they implicitly help him and expose themselves for the hypocrites they are.

Their egos can´t handle all of the success President Trump is having in the economy, the NFL, the world stage, ISIS, the military, and most of all with We The People.

Like W as a person. Voted for him twice. In some ways a good POTUS. But when he said "Islam is the Religion of Peace" I realized that he was not Solomon and his Mensa Card Membership got lost in the mail. What will be interesting is the demoncraps and lying left wing media that called him a dummy for 8 years will do a 180 and discover he is wise leader.

Hear, hear, #30! I only wish the comments of #12 bore some truth, but fear that is not so.

The NWO, New World Order, is deeply embedded in the DC swamp. It is the scariest, most dangerous of all threats to the strength and survival of our unique, precious, and essential country.

Only a Trump is savvy and tough enough to take them on with any chance at all of winning.

Are you envious about the man that shows you up as the first republican president since your presidency? Or was this little speech
an opportunity to settle a score about your brother, Jeb?
Whatever it was about it didn´t reflect well on you.
Mr. President, I´m with Pres. Trump. He is

Just because someone is against illegal immigration, it does not mean that they are racist.

If the duly passed laws on lawful immigration are going to be selectively enforced, they need to be repealed.

For many opponents of illegal immigration, as opposed to lawful entry and immigration, it is a matter of if we will have a country governed by laws or a country governed by whims.

Well, #12, I went along with those same arguments during W’s first six years. When he would do things like GIVING Teddy full rein to formulate the No Child Left Behind education “reform,” do you remember what we Republican conservatives said to try and justify it. Oh, that W - he is a great poker player. Well, he is so smart as he is keeping his enemies close. No need to say again here that in the end, it always turned out to be EXACTLY what it first looked like. Constant capitulation to the Democrats. He was a globalist, an elitist and just another version of his swamp critter father. He was worse because of the way he and Rove deceived Christian conservatives. No, Bush, Inc. has been fully exposed. Thank God for President Trump. The Bushes wanted Hillary to win over our current President. I think that says all we need to know about this family.

I was listening to this speech this morning and as soon as he introduced Madeleine Allbright, and then mentioned his Step-Brother Bill Clinton, I knew what to expect. Yes indeed, He sounded very much like a liberal Democrat.
I wish he was that assertive when he was potus but instead turned the other cheek over and over again letting the media and the liberals have their say about him.

Not to take a swing while a guy is backed into a corner but he did nothing to end Planned Parenthood and he spent like a drunken sailor. He´s a globalist plain and simple.

So many here forget that W was trying to deal with this illegal alien invasion by bringing about AMNESTY only 10-12 years ago.

It has only gotten worse and Nobama made it even worse.

What would Gore have done in the aftermath of 9-11? This country to a bad LEFT turn after Bus 41 agreed to raise taxes to "cut the deficit" and the RINOs began taking down what President Reagan built.

W´s 2nd term was profligate spending out the wazoo--

What is wrong with a sovereign nation, protecting citizens from harm from invaders, and less government and less spending? That has to be turned back before an avalanche of debt buries us!

G.W. - Another one of the idiot Bush Boys. Well, he sure bamboozled me. I thought the world of him as President - at first. Of course, it was highly likely I convinced myself of his merit in the comparison to gore. Gad! But, a man would take a sway back mule vs any dead horse. Besides, My infatuation with GW only lasted until he infamously climbed the steps of that Mosque after 9/11 and wrapped his arms around Islam instead of his own nation. That ripped my blanket with the stooge.
Now he speaks out- NOW? Where were his words of wisdom during the 8 years Obama was raping our constitution and our culture? Nowhere! where was he when he watched the Clintons robbing the donations for the Haitian earthquake victims? he just guffawed and stepped back to his little cowboy paradise. Didn´t say word. You know what that is? That´s a damn coward, right there!
So, now- where are his people? Where are his followers and adherents? Who praises him now? No one. He is a fool on a fool´s errand. Let his speak- it is his right. but, then ask, where is the weight behind his words against our now President? He has none. He´s a goat smacking his lips against the wind in an empty canyon.

#12, not a bad theory, but it assumes far, far, far more intelligence, care, coordination and planning that the politicians can muster, EVER.

My first boss once told me that when someone did something that harmed you, you are much more likely to be correct if you assume stupidity or incompetence rather than malfeasance and intent to harm.

I wasn´t so sure when I was 24, but in my mid 60s, I believe he was pretty correct. Each case needs individual evaluation, but there are 99 idiots and incompetents for each truly bad person.

If one analyzes W, all his actions were to support the Repub deep state and screw America.

I wish that that #12 suggested would be true. I don´t believe for one minute that GWB, Jeb, et al would EVER make a tacit agreement about those things mentioned. They are too busy being chummy with the Clintons to help Donald Trump.

I was stunned by the behavior of GW. I also find it extremely disappointing that he never have uttered a word about the vile, traitorous, corrupt, evil Obama while he behaved like a dictator and spewed his racial/religious bias and hatred. But today I thought he certainly implied that he was referring to the actions of DJT when making the statements listed below:

1. We are seeing nationalism distorted into nativism
2. We have forgotten the dynamism that immigration has brought to America Really??
3. We have fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade
4. We are seeing isolationism sentiments

Those are just a few of the main comments that really stood out to me. It was extremely obvious to me the individual to whom he was referring.

I stopped watching after he mentioned that Pete Wehner was there at that meeting to give some guidance . I was already ticked off and didn´t care to listen to another word. It really is amazing that Trump has caused those individuals we thought we knew and trusted who have revealed themselves to be less than desirable. It is especially shocking coming from GW because of his Christian beliefs. I don´t care if I ever hear from him again. How sad.

I saw a brief video image of George W. Bush speaking and his demeanor was unhappy. It is evil to expect, in fact to demand, that one´s fellow countrymen accept illegal alien invaders and pay them full benefits from the minute they arrive at our shores. If I were president for a day, I would end the monies spent on former presidents including for security. Good bye, good luck, you are on your own. Just like all of us little deplorables who fund your elite existence.

#30 Bingo! The globalists have their money and vision threatened by Trump´s desire for MAGA.

I expected Bush to have the Clintons indicted for their evil doings; but we got silence.

The Scooter Libby farce stunned me.

Didn´t Jenna Bush indicate that she was voting for Hillary?

Trump is standing alone in a nest of vipers.

We who pray must pray for him and our nation.

It´s not Donald Trump´s fault W failed to secure our borders. He had his chance, but upholding his oath of office wasn´t as important to him as I thought it was when I cast my vote for him. Twice.

Bush didn´t care about protecting our borders any more than Obama did. May they both enjoy their retirements and may Donald Trump be successful in cleaning up the mess the two lesser presidents left behind.

I thought all that #1, 2 and others said and then read the article.

Only thing it slams is isolation over globalization. GHWB was slammed for CFR push for one world order?

Reading all the way to article end and Bush spokesman says nothing new said )or IMO intimated). But will GWB clarify media error? I doubt it sadly.

I too gladly voted for GWB twice but now that I can see the total picture, we had much smaller problems back then and he did a mediocre job peppered with some big failures, the biggest of which was Iraq. He could not have survived in today´s world as DJT is doing now and doing well.

I hope this speech was not the first shot of Jeb´s next campaign for POTUS. It will be entertaining but a waste of GOPe money.

Well, I should check bush’s source statements and not accept the rantings of this fake news source as an accurate representation of what bush said.

But nonetheless I will say that Bush invaded Iraq. And that the MOST important thing was public opinion in order to win the long game. And bush thought it beneath his dignity to fight to win public opinion.

To make a clear assessment of an individual’s speech, it is best to read a transcript rather than trust the reporting of print or televised news accounts. Reading the full text of President George W. Bush’s speech, versus what is being reported in the media, reveals the typical mainstream media hostility to President Trump. As other Ldotters have posted, there is an ambiguity in the content that does allow for President Bush’s comments to be interpreted not necessarily as criticisms of President Trump, but as identifying issues that are serious, and allows for factoring in foreign and domestic

influences undermining our nation’s citizenry and cultural stability. Within the speech, there is a call for unity that must go back to the foundational values of our country, with special focus on America’s young people that mandates integrity within educational and religious institutions. Without being specific, it may be that President Bush is delineating the serious issues facing President Trump and, in a judicious manner, pointing to contentious, monied foreign and domestic sources orchestrating purposeful, organized chaos in our country.

It would be heartbreaking and shameful if President Bush’s speech was intended to chastise President Trump.

Senate Democrats have put together 50 votes for a measure meant to block the Federal Communications Commission´s December decision to end net neutrality rules put in place by the Obama administration. Democrats are just one GOP vote shy of the 51-vote threshold for a Senate resolution of disapproval, which would strike down the FCC´s December rules change. //SNIP// The Democrats´ effort won the support of its first Republican backer, Sen.

Wall Street Journal: Bannon ‘is for losers’ © Greg Nash The Wall Street Journal´s editorial board ripped President Trump´s former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, in the wake of Alabama Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore´s defeat, saying "Bannon is for losers." "The Alabama result shows that Mr. Bannon cares less about conservative policy victories than he does personal king-making. He wants to depose Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader even if it costs Republicans Senate control. GOP voters, take note: Mr. Bannon is for losers," the board wrote in an op-ed on Wednesday.

The Dec. 1 plea deal struck with President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, marked a big step forward in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. It may also have provided some protection for Mueller against being fired by the president—and helped ensure that his probe will continue, even if one day he’s not leading it. (Snip) Even if Mueller goes, his team is providing tools that other prosecutors or investigators can use to continue inquiries. Flynn’s deal requires him to cooperate with state and local officials as well as with federal investigators.

Paul Manafort ghost-wrote an editorial about his political work in Ukraine, violating a court order, according to a new court filing from the special counsel’s office. The allegation was disclosed Monday as the reason the special counsel was backing out of a deal on bail with Manafort’s lawyers. The deal would have loosened the terms of house arrest for President Trump’s former campaign manager. Manafort wanted to be allowed to travel among a few states in return for agreeing to forfeit $11.6 million in property if he missed a court appearance.

This has hit a raw nerve in me," Bush wrote in the op-ed.

McFarland told a friend in an email when she was on Trump´s transition team that Russia "threw" the U.S. election to Trump, The New York Times reported Saturday. McFarland reportedly wrote in the email that sanctions then-President Obama levied on Russia in response to Moscow´s election meddling would make it more difficult for Trump to improve relations with Russia, "which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him."

President Trump said Saturday he had to fire Michael Flynn as national security adviser because he lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI, an apparent shift from the reasons Trump stated at the time of Flynn´s ouster. Trump’s changing rationale is a discrepancy that will catch the attention of prosecutors on Mueller’s team looking into whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation. "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies," Trump tweeted while traveling in New York City for fundraising events.

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Cook Political Report, a top nonpartisan election handicapper, is predicting a wave of Democratic victories in the 2018 midterm elections. In a new analysis, Cook editor Amy Walter says she feels a similarity to a wave of Democratic Congressional victories in 2006, in which the party took control of the House, the Senate and a majority of governorships during former President George W. Bush´s second term. “[B]ack in 2006 ... I argued that unlike the last wave election of 1994, the party holding the White House was much better prepared. Republicans in 2006 had significant financial advantages,” Walter writes.

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
