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.

Stuck in the mud ...and part of the swamp.

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.

Seems W is a Lib in Sheeps clothing...it is obvious he hates Trump because of what Trump did to Jeb...

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.

A fake headline Politico gotcha IMO

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.

Mandela was in jail all those years because he was a terrorist! No hero, he.

Cook Political Report predicts
Democratic ´wave´ in 2018
The Hill, by Brandon Carter    Original Article
Posted By: viola- 11/17/2017 9:38:03     Post Reply
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.

Former President George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a Michigan woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992. The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush´s re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op. "We got closer together for a family photo and it was like ´Holy crap!´" she said, describing the moment Bush touched her buttocks. "It was like a gentle squeeze."

A new poll shows Democrat Doug Jones leading by 8 points in the Alabama Senate race in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against his opponent, GOP candidate Roy Moore. Jones is supported by 50 percent of likely voters surveyed in the deep-red state, while 42 percent of likely voters support Moore, according to the Fox News poll released Thursday. The survey was conducted Nov. 13-15. The last Fox News poll on the race, conducted in mid-October, showed Jones and Moore tied. Another recent poll from the Senate GOP’s campaign arm showed Moore trailing by double digits.

WASHINGTON — Another woman went on national television this week to press her case of sexual assault by a powerful figure. But the accused was not Roy S. Moore or Harvey Weinstein or Donald J. Trump. It was Bill Clinton. I feel like people are starting to believe and realize that I was truly sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton,” Juanita Broaddrick said on Fox News nearly two decades after first going public with her story. “All victims matter.

At a public appearance in South Jersey, Ivanka Trump spoke to the Associated Press about the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.). It was unclear whether she was specifically directing the first comment at Moore himself, but had strong words for the Alabama senate candidate if he was indeed found to have done what he is accused of. "There´s a special place in Hell for people who prey on children. I´ve yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims´ accounts," she told the AP at an event near Toms River.

North Korea gave its version of a diplomatic verdict Wednesday on President Trump´s recent trip to Asia: He´s a coward who deserves to die. Pyongyang´s state media slammed Trump for insulting North Korea´s leader, Kim Jong Un, while on a five-country tour of Asia. It said the American president, who Kim has feuded with for months, deserves the death penalty.

He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people,"

A woman says Roy Moore sexually assaulted her as a minor in Alabama, and is scheduled to appear at a press conference in New York this afternoon.The announcement came from attorney Gloria Allred, who has represented women who accuse President Donald Trump and comedian Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct or assault. The individual would be the fifth person to accuse the Republican Senate nominee of inappropriate conduct with them, including one who said Moore, then a 32-year-old prosecutor, had sexual contact with her when she was 14. Messages left with the Moore campaign Monday morning were not immediately returned.

The Green Beret sergeant’s dry day became a key to unraveling the narrative spun by the elite Navy commandos whom military investigators now suspect killed him, officials familiar with the case said. Melgar, a staff sergeant in the Army’s 3rd Special Forces Group, was specifically selected for an intelligence operation in the west African nation of Mali. He was well respected by the American Embassy staff and the partner forces there, a former U.S. Africa Command official said.

More of Sen. Rand Paul´s neighbors are speaking out and casting doubt on reports that a mere "landscaping dispute" led to the attack a week ago that left the Republican lawmaker hospitalized with six broken ribs. As the suspect — 59-year-old neighbor and anesthesiologist Rene Boucher — pleads not guilty to a single misdemeanor assault charge, the motive for what Paul´s office describes as a “blindside” remains a total mystery. The New York Times initially reported neighborhood chatter suggesting a long-running landscaping disagreement led to last Friday’s attack in Kentucky.

One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.” “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website. Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.” She suggested that she

Once upon a time, Hillary Clinton thought the prospect of a presidential candidate declining to pledge to absolutely accept the sanctity of certified election results was "horrifying." She said so in a general election debate in order to attack Donald Trump -- who, at the time, was (recklessly) leaving the door open to challenge the outcome of an election most people expected him to lose. Chief among these people was Hillary Clinton. That´s why she excoriated his dodging and noncommittal answers on the question as dangerous to American democracy.

The Department of Justice will soon commence an investigation to determine whether there should be an investigation (you read that nonsense correctly) of a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation and a company called Uranium One. It appears that FBI decisions made during the time that Hillary Clinton was being investigated for espionage will also be investigated to see whether there should be an investigation to determine whether she was properly investigated.

WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those

Going where no other prominent Democrat had before on Thursday evening by declaring that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the New York senator and potential 2020 presidential contender yet again found herself the face of a national conversation with the potential to dominate headlines and divide her party. At a time Democrats are desperate to keep the focus on accusations against President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Gillibrand’s stand shocked even some of her close allies.
