PostSubject: Bush: It 'doesn't hurt my feelings' that Obama doesn't call   Thu Oct 02, 2014 11:49 am

Say what you want, Bush tells it like it is. I have to commend him for not publically criticizing Oblamer in spite of being constantly thrown under the bus by the spineless "accept no responsibility for anything" COWH. I thought the last sentence was hilarious.

"Former President George W. Bush reflected on Iraq in an interview on Thursday and said that President Obama does not call him regularly, but it "doesn't hurt my feelings."

Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq as president and Obama is dealing with instability there after the removal of U.S. troops in 2011.

"The Iraqi people obviously are going to have to make the decision as to whether or not they want to live in peace," Bush said on Fox News. "They're not ready to do it on their own, that's the lesson we've learned recently."

But he pointed to "strong institutions" there and said democracy takes time to build.
Republicans have criticized Obama for not leaving behind some troops in the country after 2011.

Bush said he does not want to "second-guess" Obama, but did agree when asked about Gen. Martin Dempsey's recommendation in 2011 that troops stay behind. "I agreed with General Dempsey's assessment," Bush said.

Bush said the sacrifice of veterans has been worth it. "It really was. The world is better off without Saddam Hussein in power or the Taliban in power," he said.

Bush did not speak extensively about Obama opening an offensive of his own against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants. Bush did say that ISIS has the "same exact modus operandi of those who murdered 3,000 on our soil," referring to al Qaeda's attacks on Sept. 11.

Bush called interim Secret Service Director Joe Clancy, with whom he worked, "a good man." "I trust his judgment a lot," he added.

"Joe will do a good job," Bush said.

Asked about his higher approval ratings out of office, Bush replied, "I wish I could tell you I cared."

I enjoyed seeing the entire interview.


Bush pointed out, while he was president, he called Clinton to discuss issues and get his view. Wow......

It really says a lot about the cowh.... President Clinton called on President Bush 41 and they have formed a partnership in several areas...President Bush 43 called on President Clinton and they have teamed up together... It's not unusual for these kinds of conversations to take place and to not utilize experience or expertise is a waste of valuable resources...

President Bush 41 & 43 BOTH have restrained themselves from comments and/or criticizing and that certainly displays their class and respect for the current administrations...Compared to the comments/criticism from former President Carter it's refreshing that there are some former presidents have put politics aside and work together...

Not surprised that President Bush (43) would agree with General Dempsey because he listened and respected his military advisors...There have been segments on a Bush press conference in '07 that accurately predicted the outcome if the United States left Iraq too early...sadly those comments fell on deaf ears...

Lastly....this golfing event for wounded heroes hosted by President Bush would have been one chance for the cowh to play some golf and not be criticized...
