Former Vice President Dick Cheney castigated Donald Trump on Monday after the GOP presidential front-runner accused former President George W. Bush of lying in order to force the US into war in Iraq.
“He sounds like a liberal Democrat to me,” Cheney told Fox News host Bret Baier. “He’s wrong, and I think he’s deliberately promoting those views in order to advance his own political interests.”
Oh gasp, gasp gasp! A politician — a REPUBLICAN politician — ‘promoting those views to advance his own political interests’! Since WHEN has this been acceptable behavior?
I did not see it but have heard that Mein Trumpf tore ol Duya a new one at the debate, sandblasting John Ellis Bush, dubya’s not-quite-as-smart little brother for relying on him to aid his flailing campaign
“The World Trade Center came down during your brother’s reign. Remember that," Trump said to the former Florida governor.
Trump went back to the line of attack moments later, after Marco Rubio also defended George W. Bush's record, saying he was grateful it was not Al Gore in the White House on 9/11.
"The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe? That is not safe. That is not safe, Marco. That is not safe," he continued. "The world Trade Center came down because Bill Clinton [didn't] kill Osama bin Laden when he had the chance to kill him. And George Bush-- by the way, George Bush had the chance, also, and he didn't listen to the advice of his C.I.A."
“How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center…excuse me, I lost hundreds of friends!” Trump said as the crowd booed loudly.
Lindsay Graham said that Trump sounded like Michael Moore. Just throwing that in there.
“What he said about President George W. Bush being a liar and that the Bush administration is the cause of 9/11 is Michael Moore stuff,” Graham told ABC's "Good Morning America."
Trump said Saturday during the Republican presidential debate that President Bush “lied” to the American people by suggesting there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, even though “they knew there were none."
The billionaire’s allegations angered fellow Republicans who have stood by the Bush administration
George W. Bush never mentioned Donald Trump. But with his folky touch, the former president unleashed a tough takedown Monday of the billionaire businessman who has upended a Republican Party his family has long led.
"I understand Americans are angry and frustrated," Bush said during his first campaign rally for his brother, Jeb Bush. "But we do not need somebody in the Oval Office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration."
He urged voters to back a candidate who will be "measured and thoughtful" on the world stage. A candidate whose "humility" helps him understand what he doesn't know. A candidate who can win in November's general election.
"All the sloganeering and all the talk doesn't matter if we don't win," Bush said. "We need somebody who can take a positive message across the country."
this should be a Broadway play all the liars get together one tells the truth the others defend the lie then then the one who was supposed to be in charge tells a truth but sounds more like he's describing a Obama like person for the GOP a good writer could make this the new "Comedy of Errors" or "Who's on First" nothing brings ol Dick out like calling him for his war crimes.
and Bush the voice of reason and eloquently articulated, who knew????????????????????
