Bush says Trump ‘makes me look
pretty good’ by comparison: report

The Hill, by John Bowden

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 3/6/2018 10:26:22 AM

Former President George W. Bush often jokes that President Trump´s administration makes his own former White House team look "pretty good," according to a Republican source. The former Republican president regularly knocks the current administration, a source close to the Trump administration told National Journal, unable to understand why the White House often seems to be in chaos. "Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: ´Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn´t it?´ " National Journal reported.

Not necessarily. Granted, Bush´s WH wasn´t as chaotic, but it also didn´t accomplish much either.

Bush has been doing nothing but make himself look bad since his failed administration.

Why was W silent when Obama was in office yet is willing to criticize Trump? I thought it was a matter of Bush having personal respect for the office but I now see I was wrong.

Bush should speak out only if he has a constructive comment to offer.

He was a big disappointment as president, but still a better alternative to Gore.

I voted for both Bush presidents.

However, even at the time, I voted for them as the lesser of two evils.

W is a vile little man. A failed ex-president who needs to shut up and go away!!!!!

All President Trump is doing is reminding us how useless you were as president!!!!!!!

Where was Bush 43´s commentary in the eight long years of Barry Soetoro, the greatest fraud in American history? In his post-presidential years, Bush is proving himself a jerk, damaging his brand.

Disclaimer: I voted for Bush, who was the obvious choice.

I agree, #4. However, sometimes I wonder what would have been the outcome had 9/11 happened on Gore´s watch, had he been president. Would America have correctly placed the inescapable blame for 9/11 on Clinton´s lousy foreign policy and avoidance of the Bin Laden issue? Hard to say. But, there would have been no one else to blame.

Trump is a threat to the globalists and he said he was going to kick them out of Washington. I know it´s not popular to say this, I believe there was more in common with the Clintons/Bushs/Obamas and the deep state. I´m not surprised GW feels the noose tightening.

GWB had all of our support at one time but he´s quickly losing it. He thinks Trump´s swearing in was "weird" but Obama´s second swearing in over the Koran was perfectly peachy.

All he did, besides let a bunch of muslim pilots learn to take off in planes but not land them, kill 3,000 American citizens while he darted around the clouds in AF1 wringing his hands, was to try to finish Daddy´s legacy in Iraq, people who had nothing to do with 9/11. His first move should have been to bomb Mecca to dust.

George, you never looked good and never will. That also goes for your sensitive little brother.

My last vote for a Bush was in the 2004 Pres. election. I haven´t voted for his nephew in Texas and am grateful to President Trump to keep me from having to deal with a Jeb Bush vs Hillary Clinton choice in 2016.

Actually, I would have probably voted for the Prohibition Party candidate in that instance except for the problem I´d have to have a strong drink regardless of who won.

Dubya´s downhill slide accelerated early in his second term, when he started disregarding Dick Cheney´s advice. Now without either Cheney or Karl Rove to keep him from weaving in and out of his lane, he is revealing himself to be something less than a wise leader.

No one is going back and comparing the Bush years with Trump because the Obama years are so chocked full of crimes and other impeachable offences there is no need to go back further. I would say that if W’s brother had won we could say W looks pretty good in comparison to Jeb.

Funny how republicans fall back on that business of stepping aside and not criticizing the presidents who come after them only if the successor is a democrat. They eat their own when it comes to republicans.

Anyone wonder how much more focused President Trump would be if he didn´t have so many ankle-nipping dogs yapping after him? He has accomplished a great deal despite the terrible press coverage and out-and-out lies that are floated loudly and later retracted quietly.

History isn´t kind to GW. I thought at the time, that he was a surprisingly good president - though he didn´t stand up for himself. But hindsight shows he had other flaws that were camouflaged by how rotten his opposition was. Ultimately, he weakened America.

In contrast, Trump has strengthened America. He´s cringe-worthy, in some matters, but his underlying ideology and intent is what this country has needed for a long time. People who strive to be part of the government are, far more often than not, selfish powerhungry fools. Most of our current conflict in Washington has been a long time coming, and is made more violent because the Left thought they ´had it in the bag´ with Hillary.

Their disappointment at failing has driven them insane.

Now, Trump is perhaps the only man standing between Americans and anarchy. If he fails... if we fail, then the next step is a massive bloody civil war.

We must not fail.

GW had no problem with Obama because Obama knew his place in the swamp. Trump doesn´t. Ma and Pa Bush nearly adopted the Clintons. They knew their place too. I´ve still not figured out if HW´s statement on the "New World Order" was a gaff or statement about a proud achievement. Oh, and just remember, illegals are just here to do the jobs Americans won´t do.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Hillary Clinton has been spotted on multiple occasions lately wearing long jackets paired with colorful scarves that cover her neck and drape down over her back. But Clinton´s style choice, which she has even worn out in 80 degree temperatures, has prompted speculation that she has something to hide... a back brace. Eagle-eyed social media users noticed a strange protrusion coming from Clinton´s back when she was photographed visiting her daughter Chelsea´s apartment in New York last week. The supposed back brace was clearly visible under her blue jacket as she left her daughter´s building and headed back to her

She and her aides ´studied´ how the British royal family had handled the birth of Prince George in 2013 in order to prepare for her own first baby, who was born a year later. Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims.

But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,

Mary Jo Kopechne had been dead for several months when her parents began to have serious questions about what had really happened the night of July 18, 1969. At first, Gwen and Joe Kopechne had believed Senator Ted Kennedy’s account of that evening after his car had plunged off the narrow wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, just off of Martha’s Vineyard, landing upside down in a tidal pond with their daughter trapped inside. “They trusted him,” says Mary Jo’s aunt, Georgetta Potoski, 75. “They loved the Kennedys. Everyone did. But later on, they started to question what happened.” Kennedy escaped from

The victim was later identified as Elaine Herzberg, 49.

The Andrew McCabe I knew

As the news arrived Friday night that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had been fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, I felt a visceral numbness. The announcement had certainly been anticipated. Nonetheless, the expected blow still stunned the senses. I have known Andy since he was a young SWAT operator on the FBI´s New York Office SWAT team that I led as senior team leader. No matter my opinions on some of his actions as deputy director, this humiliatingly drawn-out public flogging had happened to "one of us." The McCabe I knew was an ambitious ladder-climber whose sights were

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously

The latest cover of Time magazine criticizes President Trump´s tough border policy, by showing him looking down at a crying, two-year-old Honduran girl whose mother was detained after crossing the border.The photoshopped image is the latest ding against Trump and his zero tolerance policy, which led to the increased family separation of illegal immigrants. The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America." (Tweet/Video) On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order aimed at putting an end to the practice of separating families, after calling on Congress, specifically Democrats, several times to change the laws.

The Minnesota Vikings made history on Thursday. Vikings players, coaches and members of the LGBTQ community came together for a first of its kind inclusion summit held by an NFL team. The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports. (snip) Kluwe´s hope is that the NFL and other sports leagues take notice, and it sparks conversations leading to more acceptance of the LGBTQ community in the athletic world.

The Mexican restaurant where Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was swarmed by protesters Tuesday in Washington, D.C., took no action to quell the protesters or ensure Nielsen’s safety, a manager told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday.“We are not upset the protesters came here and we are not upset even if it was any of our staffers [who tipped off] the protesters,” the MXDC Cocina Mexicana manager, who refused to give his name, told TheDCNF. “We are happy about what happened.”Police responded to the incident, USA Today reported.

Sony Pictures Classics released a statement shredding actor Peter Fonda for his tweets, one of which called for 12-year-old Barron Trump to be raped — but the company said it would still release Boundaries, a new film co-starring Fonda.“Peter Fonda’s comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely,” the film company said in an emailed statement late on Wednesday. However, the company went on to insist that pulling the upcoming Shana Feste-directed Boundaries, or trying to edit Fonda out of the film, would be “unfair” to the those involved. “It is important to note that Mr. Fonda

Melania Trump made quite the sartorial statement on Thursday when she donned a jacket with the words, ´I REALLY DON´T CARE, DO U?´ written across the back while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children being held at the border in Texas. The 48-year-old first lady was pictured arriving at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland wearing the $39 khaki design from Zara, before boarding her plane to fly to Texas. She removed the offending jacket, which bore the controversial phrase in white graffiti-style writing across the entire back section, before disembarking the plane upon her arrival. (Photos) By the

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

One of the shouting socialists who chased Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a D.C. Mexican restaurant Tuesday night is a Justice Department worker. Democratic Socialists of America member Allison Hrabar reveled in her actions Wednesday to the Washington Examiner, saying it “feels really good to confront people who are actually responsible” for arresting any illegal immigrants. One of the chants on the video says Immigrations and Customer Enforcement should be abolished. According to the Examiner, Ms. Hrabar is a paralegal specialist at the Justice Department. Ms. Hrabar said her actions were off-the-clock and not official, and that she

Starbucks may have appeased progressives with its social-justice workshops and open-bathroom policy, but such moves have failed to caffeinate the company’s bottom line. The coffee giant’s stock took a tumble Wednesday after CEO Kevin Johnson announced that Starbucks would close 150 company-owned stores next year instead of the expected 50, with an emphasis on underperforming shops in densely populated urban areas, and lowered growth projections.
