Choosing Sides: Bush ’43 Bashes Trump February 27, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, rank stupidity, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
Ace notes quite rightly that, in spite of constant barbs and insults directed at him by President Obama, who continued to blame the poor state of the economy on Bush 3 or 4 years into his administration, Bush 43 remained silent on Obama’s numerous mistakes, errors, and outright atrocities. The establishment takes care of their own, and admits of no coarse and benighted outsiders. Bush did at least note that Trump’s only been in office for a month, but his comments were distinctly hostile, especially in light of his constant silence in spite of all that Obama said against him and his administration. I’ll also add that Bush has once again proven what a family of total squishes he belongs to. The quotes below contain Bush’s comments, I add my own and emphasis:
Former President George W. Bush offered what appeared to be a thinly veiled critique of his Republican successor on Monday, as he defended the importance of the media and immigration policies that are “welcoming.”
…“I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush said.[No, you have always been a fervent supporter of shamnesty and unconstrained illegal immigration, with periodic waves of the wand that make those illegals legal. You are one of those Republicans who believe, contrary to all evidence and logic, that Hispanics are just craving a little more appeasement from Repubniks in order to transform from an overwhelmingly reliable liberal/leftist voting bloc, and into a conservative/Republican one. Phyllis Schlafly rightly recognized this as insanity, and a sure way to not only destroy all future national conservative electoral prospects, but the very cultural fabric of this nation]
He also echoed the reported comments of new National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, refusing to term terrorism as inherently Islamic.
“People who murder the innocent are not religious people,” Bush said. “They want to advance an ideology. And we have faced those kind of ideologues in the past.” [Only someone deliberately ignorant of the entire history, distant and recent, of islam could make this claim, leaving aside the most key aspects of islamic doctrine, which have always advocated the spread of islam through violence, repression, and rapine]
“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy,” Bush said. “That we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. Power can be very addictive. And it can be corrosive.” [Where is the media being persecuted or prevented from speaking their mind? Good grief he gets absolutely excoriated as a new Hitler, racist, homophobe, etc., dozens if not hundreds of times every single day. For the vast majority of the establishment media there is nothing at all Trump can do right, and many within it have been plotting for his impeachment if not assassination since before he took office! Trump’s reaction to this has been exceedingly modest, only calling out the bias of the press the vast majority of his supporters see as being a huge problem in our disintegrating republic, and doing what Obama did – favoring certain news sites while blocking those relentlessly hostile to him. This is just politics as usual.]
“One of the things I spent a lot of time doing was trying to convince a person like Vladimir Putin, for example, to accept the notion of an independent press,” said Bush, who cautioned that “it’s kind of hard to tell others to have an independent free press and we’re not willing to have one ourself.” [Well, this is certainly the view of the establishment desperate to hold onto its power. I don’t think it’s exactly a revelation that Bush is both a part of, and beholden to, that same failing, unqualified, self-anointed elite group. I’ve generally eschewed populism in my life but the establishment has failed so miserably for so long, and has put this nation in such great jeopardy, that I am willing to countenance even radical solutions to break their power and influence, as, apparently, a great number of Americans agree. Trump was far from my first choice, but I am so fed up I took a flyer on a wildcard. What I do know is that a$$hats like Bush simply are not getting the job done.]
And now he just gets nasty:
Bush said it was important to know the truth about any relationship between Russia and members of the current administration — “I think we all need answers — but dodged when asked if a special prosecutor was required to look into collusion allegations. [Even though there is zero evidence of any improper contacts. But democrats and establishmentarians – but I repeat myself – want it to be true so very badly they are trying to wish the evidence into existence]
Sour grapes from a manifest failure? Bush almost destroyed the Republican party and gave us Obamacare more than any single person, as his miserable administration led to both the most radical president in US history and a veto-proof majority for the dems in Congress. Republicans had the House, Senate, and presidency at various times in Bush’s administration, and he played an enormous role in losing all that (with a huge assist from hideously biased media).
There is no more insider-elite family than the Bushes. They practically define the self-serving corporate-interest serving uniparty so many Americans have come to deplore. I’m hardly surprised he’s going to take shots at Trump. But I still find it galling that this man who couldn’t be moved to, say, even defend the rights of Christians, one of which he purports to be, in the face of unprecedented persecution on the part of the Obama administration. Or the unilateral pullout from Iraq that left that country vulnerable to an islamist – be it wahhabist or Iranian-dominated shia – takeover. There are endless examples to pull from, on matters infinitely more substantial than Trump’s feud with the press or fantasies regarding Russian involvement. Where was Bush on Obama’s radical pro-abort stands? I could go on for thousands of words.
Ah, well, a Bush wound up on the wrong side of the interests of the American people in favor of a narrow, self-interested elite once again. Film at 11.
