He doubled the cap on legal immigration raising the total to over a million a year. We are living with that mistake today, a mistake that may lead to the eventual destruction of the country.

Bush failed to endorse Trump for President, along with the rest of his family. The Bushes were not loyal to the GOP and proved to be ungrateful for the support the GOP gave them. Teaming up with the Clintons was unforgivable.


George H.W. Bush Calls Trump a ‘Blowhard’

Both father and son had previously said they did not vote for Trump, with the elder Bush opting for Clinton and his son saying he chose “none of the above” on the ballot.

Fair enough. I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about him. all I know is from my father who talked highly of him. I'll do some research today.

Here's a little history of the deepstate re: the GOP Establishment and the Bush connection starting with Nixon, but the truth is, it started back when the leftists in the GOP cursed Goldwater.

Father of the Establishment kicked the bucket.

Republican media strategist Roger Ailes launched Fox News Channel in 1996, ostensibly as a "fair and balanced" counterpoint to what he regarded as the liberal establishment media. But according to a remarkable document buried deep within the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, the intellectual forerunner for Fox News was a nakedly partisan 1970 plot by Ailes and other Nixon aides to circumvent the "prejudices of network news" and deliver "pro-administration" stories to heartland television viewers.

The memo—called, simply enough, "A Plan For Putting the GOP on TV News"— is included in a 318-page cache of documents detailing Ailes' work for both the Nixon and George H.W. Bush administrations that we obtained from the Nixon and Bush presidential libraries. Through his firms REA Productions and Ailes Communications, Inc., Ailes served as paid consultant to both presidents in the 1970s and 1990s, offering detailed and shrewd advice ranging from what ties to wear to how to keep the pressure up on Saddam Hussein in the run-up to the first Gulf War.

Bush stopped the troops too soon in the 1st Gulf War.

All Bushes are the essence of establishment Republicanism;
sentimental and sanctimonious time servers who "do politics".
A political failure in Conn, he moved to Texas where he got his
ass handed to him repeatedly until Reagan rescued him from
the graveyard; perhaps the latter's worst mistake.
Bush's achievements wouldn't fill the south-east quadrant of a
postage stamp but at least he wasn't as colossally incompetent
as Junior; arguably the worst POTUS in our history.

I'm a bit sick of this fawning over him. He was not a great president. He may have done some commendable things prior to becoming president but there was a reason why he was a one term president.

Exactly! He was bad enough to usher in the Marxist Clinton.

Here is my take on GHW Bush. He was never a conservative and a thoroughbred GOPe. To be elected president he had to run as a conservative. That being said, he was a hero, patriot and apparently a very good man. I think he should be given credit for managing the downfall of the Soviet Union as that could have deteriorated into a serious situation. Also, he let the military handle the Gulf War which turned out to be quite a success.

I think that's argumentative. I believe he botched the work Reagan completed. Bush allowed all kinds of nuke material to enter the black mkt, allowed Gorbachev to come to the US and start the ""Green Cross" movement, the father of the Green movement that helped usher in AGW and the push that we were killing the planet and needed to kill capitalism to solve it.
Nah, his "Kinder, Gentler" bull shit gave us the the Establishment appeasing GOP that nearly destroyed this country.
Being a nice guy, or was it all a facade? Because he certainly didn't have the best interests of the country as a priority.

A reflection.
The media is awash in a orgy of Bush adoration for a simple reason;
to draw an very unfavorable contrast versus Trump.
He was the grand-son of Samuel and the son of Prescott who "did politics"
in Ct; at which he was uniquely lousy. Next, he moved to Texas where he
repeated his performances against Yarborough and then Benson.
Had Reagan not tossed him a life preserver in 1980, doubt we would have
ever heard from him again.
As for his 'hero' label, he was one of some 250,000 Army Air Corpsmen who
were called to serve in WW 2 which was their duty rather than any achievement.
Ageless wisdom asserts that 'the Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend.'
If Bush ever knew this, he might have understood that Iran, not Iraq, was our
mortal enemy in the Middle East, since the the overthrow of the Pahlavi Monarchy,
which had been established after WW 1.
To this very, moment Iran remains the cauldron fomenting terror across that Region!!
