George W. Bush: Trump Lacked the ‘Humility’
Necessary to be an Effective Leader

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 4/19/2021 10:33:50 AM

Former President George W. Bush said Sunday during an interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell that he felt former President Donald Trump lacked the “humility” necessary to be an effective leader. In the interview that aired on “CBS Sunday Morning,” O’Donnell said, “Though he has refrained from criticizing his successors, he told us there’s a clear difference between him and former President Donald Trump.” Discussing Trump, Bush said, “I feel a responsibility to uphold the dignity of the office. I did then, and I do now. And I think it’s undignified to want to see my name in print all the time.” CORRECTION*


So big government luvin Ivy League underachieving sons and grandsons of money laundering Nazi and cartel money who did nothing but purge Reagan and his legacy, needlessly spent us lives in two mismanaged wars And showed no concern other than cheap labor as immigration policy Now he conducts lectures on humility and respect? History will be unkind to the bushes

So, george, stick to your principles; it's unbecoming to make these comments as well. Sucking up to the msm is pitiful. Keep being dignified and be quiet.

Exactly what dignity did he bring to the office? He was in a fabulous position with sky high approvals to do anything and what did he accomplish? Nothing. He couldn't even clean up and control Iraq after invading over a false pre-text because he had zero post-war plan and he never took control of Afghanistan, nor did he dig bin laden out even though the Pakistanis were hiding him.

In the past - - I sometimes had doubts about the claims that there was a "Uniparty" which tried to control everything. It sounded a bit conspiratorial to me. But now - - now there is no doubt. Mr Uniparty himself - - has stepped up to prove it. Not a peep of criticism of Master B. Clinton or Little 0bie has ever passed his lips - - but he's all to eager to appear on radical leftist media to criticize President Trump. Uniparty? Yes - - absolutely yes.

It's sad to hear this man descend into psychobabble. At the time of the Iraq invasion, I believed that he had made a really difficult decision that left the world a better place. Slightly analogous to dropping The Bomb- there was a situation that wasn't going to go away. His approach to terror seemed spot on- make them fight in their own lands so they don't come over here. His retreat from his own actions in failing to provide follow through with Iraq was hugely disappointing. Perhaps he doesn't mean "humility" but means "failed to surrender to the entrenched powers."

The same old establishment/RINO mantra: we must lose with dignity and maybe we'll get 'em next time, if they let us.... Could Trump be abrasive and a braggart? Sure, but he accomplished so much with such little help, the guy deserves bragging rights. W needs to keep his piehole shut, like he did while obama was destroying the country.

FTA: Bush said, “Totally. To me, humility shows an understanding of self. It shows a belief in a higher power that is necessary to be an effective leader. And we were short of humility.” Humility is not the right word for someone who, just like his father, sold the nation out to a "higher power" of un-American Marxists while pretending be a patriotic conservative.

He had exactly the Demeanor and Assurance that the President of the United States needs to convince other Countries that he Means What He says! One will notice our Country did not have any threats against it while Trump was in Office. There was a reason for that. Those in power knew Trump wouldn't just threaten. He would act! And they knew it! Bush was a Pushover as was Obama. Everyone knows our Current President hasn't got a clue what is happening around him and they can do whatever they want to against our country. The Democrats in the White House have no Clue and the Democrat Congress have no Clue, so we can expect some aggression against this country at any time! It's going to happen and when it does, those in Power and even our Leaders at the Pentagon, won't be effective at all. Sad for our country!

Was JFK or FDR "humble?" Hardly! They were all about themselves all the time. Trump is Trump. We knew what he was when we voted for him. Smacking down Angela Merkle was PERFECT! Yanking the tail of the Dragon (China) was PERFECT! World leaders saw that as a WIN for the U.S.A. and envied Trump for doing it. As a result, populism around the globe has increased and the fight against Globalism is underway.

George W Bush could show some humility himself. He refrained from commenting about Barack Obama and he should have done the same with Donald Trump. He is jealous because his brother did not win and being quite arrogant now.

I think georgies idea of humility is never defend yourself. I use to be a fan of his. Not so much anymore. His true ideals were shown after he left office. He never spoke against ole sex pot Clinton or the “citizen” hussien. To me it just proved he agreed with there destruction of our Constitution and this country.

You know who I'm talking about, all those Rino's who are afraid of their own shadow. President Bush was little better. He was humble. He bent over and let the liberals drive him home. How many years have I watched as timid, weak,Republicans stood by sucking their thumbs and doing nothing because the liberals might say mean things about them?

Ah, shaddup./ "Humility" is a trait that very few politicians have ... had ... or need. The days of Mr. Smith goes to Washington are long since past. If you aren't driven, thin-skinned, or willing to give -- and take -- Washington will either swallow you whole and you become the establishment or it will chew you up and spit you out. And the rest of America be damned. No more Bushes! And that includes your nephew, George P., who plays like he's pro-Trump but I expect will turn on us the first chance he gets.

W was an ineffective, timid. smirker president.. The Clinton's insulted him, criticized and degraded him at every opportunity. Turning the other cheek is one thing, but being weak, not defending and taking up for yourself is another. He befriended the lowlife Clinton's and even called slick willy his brother and George HW called him his other son. Obama blamed Bush for everything wrong. Bush's fault, the "go to" phrase, was on a loop and repeated daily whenever something went wrong or there was a smidgeon of criticism. .Still, W said nothing, but now seems to have found his voice and will not shut up. I wish he would, I have no respect for any Bush family member. Trump is strong man, a worker and a real man, he punches back and I admire that. He is a true leader and his years as a successful business man show. Only a strong man could deal with bureaucrats, politicians, mafia? jealous rivals and underhanded competition in Manhattan. Trump did many good things for the country, could have and would have done more if not for the self-serving democrats and RINOs and fake "news" people.

G.W. Bush is a liberal “insider” Republican who masked his liberalism by referring to himself and his politics as being “compassionate conservative” in nature. He is in tight with the big bankers, that has been his ancestors mantra for generations. He started the war in Iraq under the false pretenses that Iraq was amassing large quantities of weapons of mass destruction that were nowhere to be found after the USA and the UK invaded Iraq. That invasion resulted in a number of things happening, a lot of USA and UK troops being killed and wounded, a lot of money being made by the defense contractor’s investors, the empowering of Islamists in Iraq and Iran and of course with Iraq remaining as a destabilized land housing all sorts of Islamist related terrorists still running loose, none of which is in the best interests of the USA. When it comes to illegal immigration, Bush always takes the liberal “insider” Republican line that unlimited cheap foreign labor is great for the business and investor classes. Remember Bush Never did defend his policies and programs or his personal or professional reputations as the leftist and liberal Democrats trashed him and his reputation into the gutter for many years. By just smiling and playing rope-a-dope as the Democrats slammed him, Bush essentially opened the door for the leftist Democrat Obama to be elected.

GW Bush is a globalist, and globalists are not humble. National sovereignty is incompatible with the way they think the world should be run. A United States population raised in freedom is incompatible with globalist plans for wealth redistribution from wealthier nations to impoverished ones. Hence, US presidents since Reagan, with the exception of Donald Trump, have been dedicated to importing poverty into the US. Note that the "humble" GW Bush refused to secure our borders, even after 9/11. That was an inexcusable dereliction of duty. Donald Trump, on the other hand, put the interests of American citizens FIRST, which is what presidents are supposed to do. The United States is a sovereign nation, and its citizens have no duty to submit to globalism. That might explain why patriotic Americans remain skeptical of the last "election," in which the first thing the "winner" did was tell illegals "they should come" to the United States. His plan fits right in with wealth redistribution and changing the US population into one that is far less educated and more tolerant of corrupt politicians.

It is so easy to be critical of a President when you know the MSM will tout your comments to the high heaven. When was the last time Bush was critical of Obama, Biden or Clinton? By his lack of comment on these three he is indicating they have run a perfect presidency--that is not possible.

Bush's 'humility' went a big way to get us 8 years of Obama. Bush's 'humility' let him be figuratively smacked in the face and kicked in the groin by his critics for years. When do you stand up for yourself? When do you stand up for your country? Bush did neither. He was President! A President is expected to defend himself. His behavior was and is disgraceful. Trump lacked humility? Thank God. We don't need any more 'humble' Bushes.

George, you abandoned whatever conservative principles you might once have had when you didn't support Trump's reelection. If you really voted for the comprehensively corrupt, stupid, senile Xiden, you have well and truly joined the enemy's side. That's a nearly unforgivable travesty of failing to recognize an unconventional but strong leader, which Trump is and you're not, especially as ex-president. You should know better, but guess you lost your judgment during your brother's unsuccessful run at the presidency.

I’m starting to get the same responsive tic with ol’ Dubya that I used to get in the 90s whenever Billy Jeff opened his ugly fish mouth: just rage and the desire to slap the frak out of him, made all the more intense by the memory of actually having voted the wretch into office. Oh and let me at his wife too. Inwish I knew what was in those notes given at his pappys funeral. I’d give anything for the American people to put that look back on there.

Trump is very humble. Those who don' t see it have deficient humor. He is not abashed; they have not shoved him a step back; i would say that humbly he stands in place.. They want to change the subject to him and his faults, and he stays on us and our issues, and on making us laugh (and laugh, he is hysterical) ... that is what they mean by not numble, that they can't get him into a struggle session and keep him there. Well YAH.

Chicago Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady on Tuesday said the city will launch a COVID-19 vaccination passport program next month for admission to select concerts geared toward young people, in another effort to “incentivize” residents to get their shots. For now, the city is working with club organizers on setting up shows and other events with “a youth flavor,” Arwady said, but the “Vax Pass” concept could end up applying to other venues, too. “As we build vaccine confidence and convenience, we’re interested in thinking about ways to incentivize people to get the vaccine,” Arwady said.

President Joe Biden kicked off his virtual Earth Day climate summit on Thursday by announcing his administration’s very ambitious plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 percent from 2005 levels by 2030 and enable the U.S. to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Sacrifice on the part of every American will be necessary in order to achieve these goals. It will change our diets, force us to purchase electric cars and dictate the way we heat our homes.

Former Solicitor General Ken Starr predicted a mandated critical race theory curriculum would be struck down by the Supreme Court after President Joe Biden's administration established education grant priorities for programs that agree to teach the controversial course load. We have to scream from the rafters," Starr said of the race-based curriculum on The Laura Ingraham Show this week. "They can recommend [the courses], but thank goodness, the United States government cannot control.

Former President George W. Bush said Sunday during an interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell that he felt former President Donald Trump lacked the “humility” necessary to be an effective leader. In the interview that aired on “CBS Sunday Morning,” O’Donnell said, “Though he has refrained from criticizing his successors, he told us there’s a clear difference between him and former President Donald Trump.” Discussing Trump, Bush said, “I feel a responsibility to uphold the dignity of the office. I did then, and I do now. And I think it’s undignified to want to see my name in print all the time.” CORRECTION*

Former President George W. Bush on Friday made a call for what he described as a "gradual" path to legal residency and eventually citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants -- while at the same time claiming that "amnesty" would be "fundamentally unfair." Bush, whose 2007 push for an immigration reform bill met with furious resistance from his own party, wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which he previewed a new book that he said will include "principles for reform that can restore the people’s confidence in an immigration system that serves both our values and our interests CORRECTION*

Hard-right House Republicans on Friday were discussing forming an America First Caucus, which one document described as championing “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and warning that mass immigration was putting the “unique identity” of the U.S. at risk. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the paper, which was first reported by Punchbowl News, a news outlet covering Capitol Hill. The AP could not independently confirm the organization’s origins or current status, but Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said he was joining and indicated that fellow conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was behind it.

Americans have come to understand the national security threat posed by China-based telecom companies, but they might be surprised to learn that equipment from the telecom firms continues to be used in U.S. networks, according to Brendan Carr, Federal Communication Commission (FCC) commissioner. The FCC in 2020 banned carriers in the United States from using an $8.3 billion federal fund to purchase equipment from China-based telecom companies Huawei and ZTE after deeming them to be national security threats. However, carriers are allowed to buy and use the exact same equipment as long as they use private funds.

For the first time since at least 2015, former House Speaker John Boehner is the toast of the town in Washington. The Ohio Republican is out with his memoir On the House. In both the book and a series of interviews to promote it, Boehner dishes on his party. On The View, Boehner accused former President Donald Trump of “one of the sadder things I’ve seen in the last 40 years in politics.” “The president abused the loyalty and the trust that voters had placed in him by perpetuating this noise,” Boehner said of Trump’s claims that last year’s presidential race was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud.
The Paradox That Fuels Our Divided Politics 16 replies

American politics is caught in a perverse paradox. The bases of both parties would like nothing more than to destroy the other party. But it is precisely this animus that prevents them from accomplishing their goal. That’s because the best strategy for partisans to wreak havoc in the other party is to pursue bipartisanship when they’re in power. When Barack Obama came into office with majorities in Congress, he opted to push his agenda on a party-line basis, starting with the 2009 stimulus package that passed the Senate with only three Republican votes and the 2010 Affordable Care Act that got no Republican support in the Senate.

A nexus can be formed among seemingly unrelated things during unusual times. Such is the case with dogs, COVID-19, mental health, politicians, and China’s history of peddling toxic products. Americans of all ages have experienced a harmful lack of social interaction in the last year, with no definitive end in sight. For millions, the best therapy is a dog. As the acquisition of furry friends skyrockets and our dependence on them increases with our isolation, those dogs’ health may be at risk from food and supplements made with ingredients sourced in China.

A shortage of semiconductor chips continues to impact both automotive industry employees and those looking to buy a car. Industry analysts say the shortage could last through the end of the year and possibly into 2022. "The microchip crisis is probably the worst crisis I’ve seen in the auto industry, at least in my career, in terms of supply chain," General Motors President Mark Reuss told Fox Business. General Motors has idled several plants across the country in the last several weeks as the lack of semiconductors meant vehicles could not be made.

The US is poised to ban menthol cigarettes in a move health experts say could have a positive impact on the health of Black Americans. The vast majority of Black smokers, an estimated 85 per cent, use menthol cigarettes, and now the Food and Drug Administration is set to take action this week. The FDA faces a Thursday court deadline to respond to a 2013 citizen petition urging it to ban menthol, in the same way it has other prohibited flavoured cigarettes. The African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council and Action on Smoking and Health sued the FDA when it

CNN’s Chris Cuomo railed against the Census Bureau on his show Monday with his guest Michael Smerconish and intimated that the agency is actively helping Republicans increase their numbers in Congress.As mandated in the Constitution, the Census Bureau is tasked with tracking the nation’s population growth by state. It then appropriates the number of seats each state gets in the House of Representatives and that is directly connected to the Electoral College calculation. They stick to the numbers since they are part of the U.S. Federal Statistical System.Cuomo seems to believe there is something nefarious going on rather than straight-up demographics.

While it may seem obvious that the constitutional right to "keep and bear arms" extends beyond the home, federal courts have been debating that question for years. This week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that could finally settle the issue, which the petitioners call "perhaps the single most important unresolved Second Amendment question." The case involves a New York law that requires applicants for handgun carry licenses to show "proper cause," which according to state courts means more than a "generalized desire" to "protect one's person and property."
