Bush Speaks

Since he left office, President Bush has not engaged in partisan politics. Despite the current President attempting to blame Bush for everything bad that happens, Bush has held his tongue. However, in a recent speech he said just a few things that ring true.

First, he said about the massive spending by the Obama administration:

“I know it's going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we're in... You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money."

On the subject of protecting our country from terrorist attacks he was very direct. He said:

“The way I decided to address the problem was twofold: One, use every technique and tool within the law to bring terrorists to justice before they strike again… that the country needs to stay on offense, not defense.”

"I told you I'm not going to criticize my successor…I'll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don't believe that -- persuasion isn't going to work. Therapy isn't going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”

I just wish some current Republicans would say the same things.

Bigger government is being sold as the answer with this administration. Obama, without a teleprompter, sounds insane at times.
Bush was right, Terrorists will cut our throat at a moments notice.
Bush never sought out radical Leftist.
Obama LOVES Left Wing Radicals!
