Failed President and Liberal Simp George W. Bush Will Attempt to Embarass Trump With New Book of Immigrant Success Stories (Plus His Third-Grade Level Paintings)

Out with the trash.

This walking pile of failure and American soldiers' bodies and limbs, this low-functioning coke-brain who can't even successfully swallow a peanut, is running gay ops against the sitting Republican President.

A new book by former President George W. Bush will highlight an issue which now sets him apart from many of his fellow Republicans -- immigration. Crown announced Thursday that Bush's "Out Of Many, One: Portraits of America's Immigrants" will be published March 2. The book includes 43 portraits by the 43rd president, four-color paintings of immigrants he has come to know over the years, along with biographical essays he wrote about each of them.Bush, who served as president from 2001-2009, has often praised the contributions of immigrants, a notable contrast to President Donald Trump's rhetoric and policies.

Hey thanks for John Roberts there, genius.

Read my lips: No. New. Kennebunkport. "Konservatives."

104 My daughter recently pointed out to me that the "art" installation depicting the poor immigrant kiddies in cages

***

I always like to ask, if I brought a kid with me to a bank robbery, what should the cops do with the kid? Put him in the cage with me, throw him out on the street, or hold him while trying to find a next of kin?

And the answer is always, "but robbing a bank is a crime".

That was a teaching moment for me. An obviously unconstitutional expansion of government, applauded because it was instituted by "our guy".

People lined up to get jobs in DHS and TSA - for the express purpose of surveilling fellow Americans. Obama didn't have to twist their arms.

181 since when are we against immigrants? I don't recall checking that box. I have seen with my own eyes many immigrants that work harder than a lot of native born citizens.

Bush was a disaster as a president. I guess he was better than the alternative but that is it. And for him to be such a jack ass to his own party, the people that supported him, is a low place to go. This guy did NOTHING for 2a, he increased statism, and he left his party with no heir and in shambles. Luckily we brushed it off and came back.

I tried to see the good in this guy and still think at one time his heart was in the right place. That he can go left and buddy buddy with the Obamas is a sad thing really.

I supported McCain in the primaries against W. Looking back, that doesn't look good but I had my reasons. They were about honor and not specific political positions. That was long ago and I am still proud of doing that. McCain turned out to be a horrible ally, he was all about himself.
But the thing about W that bothered me from the beginning is he was being forced upon us by the party. There was nothing about the guy that gave him the right to the nomination. It was so obvious people were pushing him and carrying him kind of like Biden today. I didn't like that at all.

He ended up a big government statist apologist for conservatism. In some ways he was the precursor to Never Trumpers and Soy Republicans.

It's why I was thrilled at first that Sessions was picked for AG: he single-handedly won that fight with Bush, if not for him we'd have millions and millions more illegals. I'm not sure if it was just that he was older and tired, or came from a generation that had honorable Democrats so he didn't realize they were snowing him, but Sessions ended up being a terrible AG. I feel so badly that someone was hard core anti-illegal immigrant when it was a genuine political risk to take that position ended his career so badly.

Immigration NEEDS to be like a tap. If we have a genuine labor shortage? By all means, we can handle more legal immigrants. If not? Sorry, we can't help you right now. If it isn't going to be to the benefit of all parties - especially the society welcoming the immigrant - it isn't going to work.

Actually, Obama started drawing down troops from Iraq while Republicans controlled the congress and senate. Trump can bring troops home without the congress just as he is doing rightfully in Germany. Trump knows that we need some troops in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan but doesn't admit it.

263 Immigration NEEDS to be like a tap.

***

Yes if unemployment isn't functionally zero why would we ever allow an immigrant?

In the early years of the country unemployment was essentially negative as there was a bunch of productive land not being used for anything for want of someone to farm it.


Now? Unemployment is....11%? or something (thanks Fauci!). Why would we bring in any immigrants until those people are all employed again?

Remember, HE was the one who popularized the slur of Reaganomics as "voodoo economics".

The GOPe of 1980 hated Reagan more than they hated the Donks. Saddling Reagan with Bush as VP was the GOPe's way of getting revenge for briefly losing control of the right wing.

approval and only 11 politicians voted for full withdrawal. Stop
blaming him for what is ultimately Congress's job.

Is Bush the one that is lying? I haven't seen a description of his book in his own words so I wonder if the spin/obfuscation is a product of the media. That may not work in Bush's favor if they misrepresent the subject of the book. I have no problem hearing the stories of our amazing legal immigrants, but I wouldn't pay money for a book on illegal success that may have come at the expense of deserving American citizens.

That was my epiphany about the uniparty. They made it quite apparent when Bush took office, literally rubbing our noses in it. No appreciation that they won the WH solely because of RR, and lost it because they sucked so hard.

I voted Perot the second time around with no regrets. But, they, like the dems refuse to look in the mirror.

I knew we were going to see a violent reaction to an outsider coming into the WH, I just totally underestimated how much. It's also a tell how much we needed Trump. I'm just saddened that so many Americans are too stupid to understand it.

They still see it as dems vs repubs. White hats vs black hats. They believe the kayfabe. Room temperature IQ's as far as the eye can see.

That's what they mean. Original article NYP, so they weren't listening.

The 4-color process means it's high-quality litho prints. Typical color printing is 3 color (CMY), Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, together make black. CMYK adds black, which makes a richer looking print when blacks are introduced. Really swank books may use 2 blacks and even a spot varnish, or rarely a spot color/foil (silver, gold or corporate color).

401 Most on the left, center and right talk about what a mistake Iraq was. Yet, a couple of years after Obama pulled the troops out he sent them back. Trump, who was also against Iraq sent even more in after being elected as well as sending them into Syria.

The congress can block funding for bringing troops home, but Trump can black troops from relieving those currently in-country. Then it becomes a matter of whether the congress or Trump will accept the responsibility for the same troops being left overseas beyond their deployment time.

403 W came to Ft Bragg often, I was on Division Staff then. We'd get notice of a pending VVIP visit and go batshit crazy. We did 72 continuous hours of batshit crazy before he gave a speech from our Division HQ. Secret Service are a pain in the ass, prima Donna motherfuckers who think they're elite. To a Paratrooper who is truly and undeniably elite that rankles. Anyway, we slaved for three days and nights planning shit. W showed up and shot all our plans dead in the ass. We had brought in as many of our Gold Star Families as could make it, there were hundreds by then. We'd planned 3 hours with them, W changed that cancelling everything else once he'd started his meeting with them. He stayed with them till the last minute before the televised speech. I was impressed, if anyone deserved the President's care and concern it was Gold Star Families.

As thanks for our 72 hours of jumping out of our asses we got third row seats for the speech. Afterwards W cut past the reps, senators, and political ticks in front of us and started thanking the soldiers in the third row. When he got to me he grasped my hand with a firm handshake, I saw him look at my sleeve then my name tag and he said "thank you Master Sergeant Lippi." I was impressed. Most politicians don't know a Private from a Brigadier General. I've met enough to know.

It hurts my heart to know that I made such a piss poor judgement of his character, he's a sorry assed, piece of shit RINO, deep state globalist turd burglar. Fuck off and die W.
