Top 5 Ignorant LOWLIGHTS From Bush’s Trump-Bashing Speech



George W. Bush remained quiet for 8 years, while Obama and Co. bashed the hell out of him.
Yet, he came out SWINGING against President Trump, who has not attacked him.
Here are the top 5 most clueless and ignorant lowlights from his shameful Trump-bashing speech.
From Breitbart:
“Free trade helped make America into a global economic power.”
That statement would have been news to such America-builders as Alexander Hamilton, Henry Clay, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.
As TR exclaimed in 1895, “Thank God I’m not a free trader. In this country pernicious indulgence in the doctrine of free trade seems inevitably to produce fatty degeneration of the moral fiber.”
It was non-free trade, also known as economic nationalism, that built America. We’ve been coasting for decades on its massive industrial legacy; but as we know, it’s grinding to a painful halt.
“We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism—forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”
Legal immigration, properly limited, with enough time for new arrivals to assimilate, has, indeed, been a blessing.
But the legal immigrants must come here as full citizens, not as low-wage indentured servants, which is currently the case for those coming here on H-1B visas and H-2B visas. Nor do we need low-wage illegal immigration to further drive down the wages of American workers.
And speaking of illegal immigration, we must ask: How’d that work out for the Roman empire?
“How do we begin to encourage a new, 21st century American consensus on behalf of democratic freedom and free markets? That’s the question I posed to scholars at the Bush Institute. That is what Pete Wehner and Tom Melia, who are with us today, have answered with ‘The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, In The World,’ a Call to Action paper.”
Brace yourself, America. The Bush globalists and neocons are back.
They’re ready with their plans and papers, eager to call us to action.
And when we invade a new country, the people there will throw flowers at us and call us liberators—just like the neocons said the Iraqis would.
“In serving as a shining hope for refugees and a voice for dissidents, human rights defenders, and the oppressed.”
It might be worth pointing out that Bush has left much of the Middle East in ruins, even as groups of Islamic jihadis grow ever stronger.
Have you ever noticed that when Bush wants to take a conscience-salving trip somewhere, he goes to Africa—not the Middle East?
“It is time for American institutions to step up and provide cultural and moral leadership for this nation.”
Leadership from Bush? And your family, including ¡Jeb!?  And your friends the Clintons?  Seriously?  That’s your idea?
No, please don’t “step up.” Just step away. All of you. Permanently.
In fact, remember that hidey-hole they found Saddam Hussein in? Can someone please build one of those in Dallas or Kennebunkport and escort George to it? Give him some pretzels, non-alcoholic beer, and a satellite feed of the Rangers’ games. He’ll be happy, and so will the rest of us.
If he must stay above ground, he can at least spare us any more speeches. This one was enough.
It was a feast of smirking self-satisfaction like the kind Bush was famous for, combining low ability with an unwarranted sense of superiority.
