There wasn't a peep of protest from Bush when Obama was wrecking the country.
Now that we have a President who wants to enforce existing immigration law, he gets all up in arms about it. :confused:

Quote
Former President George W. Bush says he’s “disturbed” by the immigration debate occurring under President Trump, where after decades, Americans are speaking out against mass immigration to the United States. During a panel discussion alongside former President Bill Clinton, Bush said the current immigration debate “doesn’t recognize” the “valuable contributions” of foreign nationals.

“I’m disturbed by the debate that’s taking place because I think it undermines the goodness of America,” Bush said. “I think it doesn’t recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society. And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is broken and needs to be fixed.”

Some thoughts from others ...

Quote
After 9-11, if Bush had said that we need to build a wall, and tightly control our borders, the majority in congress, and the population as a whole, would have supported that, and it would have been done.
Instead, he yapped about “security” and making Americans take off their shoes, and be treated like criminals at airports, while he left the border completely open, and didn’t give a hoot about who was sneaking in. Bush was a traitor then, and he’s still a traitor today.

Bush had a choice to make. How to stick to the globalist, open-borders agenda.

He had to weaponize our intelligence services, and give them vast powers of surveillance.
He also helped form the Deep State, with creation of Homeland Security, Directorate of National Intelligence, etc... Patriot Act, etc.

We saw yesterday with Peter Strzok how those powers were abused.

I hate the way I feel about W now because I used to love him and pray for him.
I guess I still should but I am completely flummoxed by him now.
Like I didn’t really ever know him. He is different than the man I thought he was and I feel betrayed.
Guess I’m the dummy here.

We don't have an immigration debate. We have Trump using common sense and the left demanding open borders.

And now we know which side Bush is on. I'm guessing he is trying to help out another Bush down the road for election.

He certainly wasn't on the side of Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.

Quote
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) made the following statement today regarding President Bush’s announcement yesterday to grant pardons and commutations to 29 individuals, while refusing to pardon Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.

“The President announced yesterday that 29 individuals have been granted pardons and commutations for a variety of crimes, from dealing drugs to the theft of government property,” said Congressman Hunter. “Two names that were conspicuously missing from the President’s list were Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.

“By refusing to pardon agents Ramos and Compean, the President has missed yet another opportunity to correct this miscarriage of justice. The fact that the drug dealer, whose testimony sent the agents to jail, has been indicted for running drugs across the border while serving as a federal witness necessitates a Presidential pardon.

“Agents Ramos and Compean deserve to be pardoned and returned to their families for Christmas.

“Mr. President, pardon our Border Patrolmen.”

And we were disturbed by Bush's push for amnesty.

Former President George H.W. Bush has a blunt assessment of Donald Trump: "He's a blowhard." And his son, former President George W. Bush, has harsh words for his Republican successor as well: "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president."


CNN confirmed that 'the last Republicans' both voted for Hillary Clinton for president.

Former US Republican President George Bush Sr has confirmed he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, labelling Donald Trump a "blowhard".

His son, George W Bush, said he worries that "I will be the last Republican president", even though President Trump is a Republican.

"This guy doesn't know what it means to be president," the younger man said.

The pair's comments come from a new book, titled The Last Republicans.

And these idiots call themselves the last republicans after they admit voting for Hillary?

I would say if the two Bush's had got off their ass, Trump would not have to be doing all this alone.  But they were RINO's and are now pushing for one more RINO Bush for office.

All Bushes were establishment lefties in the mold of Rockefeller,
from Prescott on down.
That any voter was/is surprised, labels that voter a fool.
Bush, your quintessential stupid boy, was a buffoon from birth,
w/an IQ lower than a brick; who attended Yale and Harvard simply
because the family was a large benefactor of both. Period!!!

There is a big difference between Rockefeller and the Bush's. Rockefeller told us what he was. The Bush's tried to pass for conservatives.
