Steve Bannon retaliates against ‘destructive’ George Bush

Former White House advisor Steve Bannon depicted former President George W. Bush as bumbling and inept, faulting him for presiding over a “destructive” presidency during his time in the White House.

Mr Bannon’s scathing remarks on Friday night amounted to a retort to a speech by Mr Bush in New York earlier this week, in which the 43rd president denounced bigotry in American politics in the era of Donald Trump and warned that the rise of “nativism,” isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation’s true identity.

But Mr Bannon, speaking to a capacity crowd at a California Republican Party convention, said Mr Bush had embarrassed himself and didn’t know what he was talking about.

He called the “permanent political class” one of the great dangers faced by the country.

      I think Maher is grossier and creepier.

    I liked it better when Republican presidents went back to their ranches and shut the hell up.

      He’s just pissed that Trump stole Jeb’s lunch.

    • Islamic terrorists murder 3,000 Americans.

      Dildo Bush then called Islam the “great religion of peace”.

      Bush, please STFU. You missed the opportunity of a lifetime to call a death cult a death cult.

        It was even worse than that. Instead of asking Congress for a real declaration of war, he accepted a half-assed resolution that allowed him to use force without stating a specific objective. With a war resolution, we could have reinstated the military draft with 90% of the public approving, formed alliances by treaty tailored to the situation at hand, imposed wartime censorship to shut up the radicals, imposed gas rationing to collapse fuel prices and put jihad financiers out of business and done the dirty jobs needed to decisively defeat the enemies.

          He also agreed to allow Iraq to make Islam its official state religion when a constitution was written.

    But President Bush educated us all about The Religion of Peace!

      Not his greatest moment.

        He never had a great moment.

          Retirement, if only he would have learned to keep his mouth shut.

    Bush loves open borders and illegal aliens (particularly Mexicans), in case anyone has forgotten. He is as bad as any Democrat in that regard.

  • Sid Falco

    Bush shat himself on 9/11 and then got played by the PNAC. He’s a useless fool.

    In one of the free rags yesterday (Metro, I think) they had a 1-inch filler about Bush shitting on Trump over the phoney widow-telephone-call lie and even then even though it was showing Bush as the voice of reason against the evil Trump, they still had a purposely-taken ugly photo of Bush that made him look like an idiot to illustrate the story. These @ssholes are so full of hate that they couldn’t even run an ordinary photo (yet alone a complimentary one) of Bush even though he is agreeing with them.

    Is Bannon ever right concerning the danger of the “permanent political class”, that I called career politicians. I prefer Bannon’s term and would say unless it is destroyed for good, it will most certainly destroy the country as it does every country.
