Trump: George W Bush Lied About Iraq

Recommended Posts

Trump said that invading Iraq was a disaster, that the country was mislead into invading Iraq by the Bush administration, and that the claim that Bush kept the country safe from terrorism is ridiculous because 9/11 happened on his watch.

It was a bizarre and telling moment, in which the battered forces of the Republican establishment finally picked themselves up off the floor specifically in order to defend some of its least-defensible conduct of the 21st Century.


"They lied," Trump said, "they said there were weapons of mass destruction and there were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction."

Bush fired back, showing his most fight in any debate yet.

“I am sick and tired of him going after my family,” he said. “While Donald Trump was building a reality TV show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe and I’m proud of what he did.”

Then Trump cut in with his uppercut: "The World Trade Center came down during your brother's reign. Remember that?"

The two men even squabbled about Bush’s mother. The former Florida governor said proudly, “My mother was the strongest person I know.”

Trump’s response: “Maybe she should be running.”

Trumps a bellend but he nails it sometimes.

If Trump was a moron all of the time then he would not be a problem.

The problem is he's a not 100% moron, sometimes he gets it right.

IRAQ II was a huge fckingdisiaster , a war chosen by Bush jrs weaknessin letting his 'aides' drive it.

Bush Snr said the same thing in his autobiography.

Trump knows what to say and how to say it.

I would put him at favourite for the win.

I think the bookies underestimate just how important that is.

Isn't he looking to reduce US meddling in the rest of the world? Could be a Good Thing there: a clown who stays home.

The average moron relates to a (sometimes) moron though? That is why he is dangerous to the established political power IMO, the slick, no slips, no truth, no straight answers approach just doesn`t cut it anymore it seems. GO TRUMP!

No.

Trump would be a steady ship. He might be bat $hit crazy, but at least you could deal with the man. Obama is a treacherous snake, I don't think there is anybody who he hasn't f**ked over.

I thought Obama has generally been pretty good. Mainly by virtue of the fact that he hasn't really done that much.

He had a go at state healthcare.

He patched things up a bit with Cuba.

Relations with Mexico have strengthened quite a lot under his watch.

He hasn't been as keen to dabble in foreign wars as his predecessors (though Kerry might have had something to do with this, and he's another one I think has quietly done a very good job).

What has Obama done that's terrible?

Not saying a change wouldn't be good. Not really bothered either way about Trump.. He seems to be all talk and little action. He'll probably make a few silly decisions while trying to play to the crowd though.

Well it depends....

The federal debt has already grown more during Obama's first six years than under all previous U.S. presidents combined, at least in nominal dollars with no adjustment for inflation. The debt owed to the public stands at about $13 trillion, an increase of 106% since Obama first took office.

The Kurdish militias (YPG, PKK) have been Washington’s most effective weapon in the Fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But the Obama administration has sold out the Kurds in order to strengthen ties with Turkey and gain access to Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base. The agreement to switch sides was made in phone call between President Obama and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan less than 48 hours after a terrorist incident in the Turkish town of Suruc killed 32 people and wounded more than 100 others.

The bombing provided Obama with the cover he needed to throw the Kurds under the bus, cave in to Turkey’s demands, and look the other way while Turkish bombers and tanks pounded Kurdish positions in Syria and Iraq. The media has characterized this shocking reversal of US policy as a “game-changer” that will improve US prospects for victory over ISIS. But what the about-face really shows is Washington’s inability to conduct a principled foreign policy as well as Obama’s eagerness to betray a trusted friend and ally if he sees some advantage in doing so.

The number of beneficiaries on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—AKA food stamps--has topped 46,000,000 for 38th straight months, according to data released by the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

In October 2014, the latest month reported, there were 46,674,364 Americans on food stamps. Food stamp recipients have exceeded 46 million since September 2011.
Food Stamps Exceed 46,000,000
for 38 Straight Months
The 46,674,364 on food stamps in October was an increase of 214,434 from the 46,459,930 on food stamps in September.
As of July, the national population was 318,857,056, the Census Bureau estimates. Thus, the 46,674,364 on food stamps equaled 14.6 percent of the population.

Why Does President Obama Hate Black Businesses?

It is not about race. It is about a philosophy and agenda that is rather foreign to his predecessors. The thought resembles that of the late Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm who addressed a group of Black manufacturers with this: “I don’t give a damn about businesses. All I am concerned with are jobs” (what an oxymoron). Then former Congresswoman Cardiss Collins chimed in with “Besides, you are all a bunch of Republicans”. Business ownership has no direct party affiliation. The ideal for President Obama is to make a world full of a few gigantic corporations, some of which are owned by governments, and then the workers unionize from top to bottom. There is no room for entrepreneurs as they just get in the way.
The big problem with the above is that America was founded and continues to be a capitalistic system where entrepreneurship is encouraged and many times rewarded. This is where the jobs come into play and 70% of all new jobs come from small businesses. His ambition counters what America is all about and this is starting to be realized by many. Black people should consider the following as examples of what I am talking about:

President Obama vowed to “transform” America, and he has: Race relations have reached lows not seen since 1995.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Wednesday shows 34 percent of Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are fairly good or very good. That matches the 34 percent tallied after disgraced football star O.J. Simpson was acquitted of killing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman.
Published by WND Books, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s “The Antidote: Healing America From the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.” exposes the fool’s gold of race hustlers seeking to “fundamentally transform” America.
The survey’s findings are a steep drop from the high of 77 percent Obama enjoyed after he was sworn into office in January of 2009.
“This is a very sad chart,” Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican polling firm, told the newspaper. “It’s a reminder … what a continued rupture point in our country race is.”
The news will not come as a surprise to Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson. The retired neurosurgeon said while appearing on the “The Hugh Hewitt Show” in November 2014, “I actually believe that things were better before this president was elected. And I think that things have gotten worse because of his unusual emphasis [on race].”

“As we’ve seen in Ferguson, the militarization of policing tends to escalate the risk of violence to the communities,”said Kara Dansky, senior counsel with the ACLU’s Center for Justice and the prime author of its June 2014 report on the militarization of US police. “We think that historically, the police and the military have had different roles and that American neighborhoods aren’t war zones and police officers should not be treating us like wartime enemies.”

She said the trend of militarizing local police forces has continued over the past several decades and that communities of color bare the brunt of most military policing.
Representative Hank Johnson, a house Democrat from Georgia, said on Thursday that he plans to introduce the “Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act”, which would end the department of defense’s military surplus program.

Surely that's the problem? I agree there are times when things are going pretty well and a do-nothing government is a good thing (I quite liked the Major government for that reason even though they were a rabble) but then there are other times when there's some stuff that really needs sorting out. Having said that, I'd take Obama over GWB or Trump any day!

All you have to do is look at the rest.

Precisely.

Another Clinton, with a history of ineptitude and scandal already and in her mind a point to prove? Very dangerous.

Another, stupider, Bush?

A socialist redistributing wealth champion in Bernie Sanders?

Trump would do more good than harm. He'd make a lot of people very angry but he'd be a man of action, decisive, and America would be stronger at the end of his presidency.

Clinton terrifies me - she really does

and I am very wary of political families/dynasties so that's another point against Clinton and Jeb Bush

Sanders reminds me of Carter (who only recently is history assessing in a kinder light)

Trump is a populist but I would say is definitely not in anyone's pocket - unfortunately that just leaves every other senator and congressman at the mercy of lobbyists - Trump will soon fall into line once he can't get anything passed.

In short: the same old, same old

The President doesnt get anything passed.

He Enacts what the Senate approve and the Congress agree to pay for.

The Presidents special powers should be limited to ordering paperclips for the office.

Is n't the truth a bitch.

If I was a U.S. citizen I would think it a possibility that Trump might end up taking my country into a major conflict but that it is a near 100% certainty if you vote for someone like Jeb Bush. The Bush crime family have a 100% record of taking the US into major shooting wars, normally on behalf of the Saudi royal family, having done it under George Bush Senior and GW Bush.

The Clintons are not exactly peaceniks either with plenty of form in the Balkans.

The U.S. has engaged in war 125 times in its history without formal approval from Congress

Ironically the Bush family did get Congressional approval for their Gulf wars but Clinton did not bother when bombing the Serbs in 1999.
