I have come here to bury 41, not to praise him. Much like Brutus, I’ll give the proper respect to a man who just died, just don’t expect me to heap praises on him.
OK, so I stole from the Bard of Avon. But I’m sure that Billy would be pleased to know that 400 years later, people would still be quoting his work.
Anyhow, I’m not going to speak ill of the dead, Nor am I going to judge the state of any man’s soul.
But I will say that George Herbert Walker Bush (better known as simply “41”), may have been the epitome of what many qualify as a Globalist RINO.
Wow… that was kinda harsh. Would it be nicer if I just described him as a Swamp Creature incarnate?
Still fairly brutal. Suffice it to say that if you ever looked-up “Estabishment Politician” in the dictionary, 41’s picture was right next to the definition.
Case in point: Did you know that 41 voted for Hillary Clinton for president during the 2016 election?
Not much better, 41’s eldest, Dubya, left his ballot blank when it came to who he wanted to occupy his former digs in Washington, DC.
Of course, all this is true only if you believe Agence France-Presse, via London’s The Telegraph and their citing of historian and author Mark Updegrove’s work, “The Last Republicans.”
Former US president George H W Bush voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and called Donald Trump a “blowhard” who was driven by “a certain ego.”
His son George W. Bush left his ballot blank and said about Trump: “This guy doesn’t know what it means to be president.”
The revelations, contained in historian Mark Updegrove’s “The Last Republicans,” available in bookstores later this month, represent the strongest criticism to date from the Bush clan on why their Republican successor is uniquely unfit to hold office.
“I don’t like him,” the elder Bush told Updegrove in May 2016 before the elections in November of that year, according to excerpts of the book obtained by AFP.
“I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being (our) leader.”
After Mr Trump said, “I’m my own advisor,” Mr Bush quipped: “Wow, this guy really doesn’t understand the job of president.”
However, rest assured that the Trump White House certainly didn’t allow this spit-in-the-eye go unresponded to;
A White House official hit back, telling CNN: “If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had.”
“And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history,” the official added.
