    Trum is by far the better president. Both of the Bush’s were and are weak.

    Bush was not good, Trump is a disgusting childish unqualified narcissist. An embarrassment.

    Thank you Senator Flake from AZ. Nailed it.

    The advent of the Internet forever changed how we assess our elected leaders. In the distant past, we had to rely on TV commentators, pundits, newspapers and the marginally intelligent. The internet has changed that approach!

    Bush’s first term was successful. He created two million jobs. But his second term was ruined by a lot of not smart people. He believed liberal lies. That’s why true Conservatives want the Bush legacy to be over. And it is for all intents and purposes.

    Trump is the best, awesome president. Bush did nothing. He should continue to keep his mouth shut.

    Trump is 100% better than Bush. just look at bush he was a horrible president and then he voted on Hillary Clinton. most republicans would not do that they would honor their own party. I used to like bush but not anymore those 5 presidents 2bushes,obama,jimmy carter, bill Clinton all acted like they were above President Trump. They made me physicaly ill when I saw them snickering reminded me of teenagers in school snickering at the outcast in school.

    Bush didn’t open his mouth for 8 years while Obama took a wrecking ball to the USA. I would appreciate it if he would keep his mouth shut for the next

    AMEN!!! But, Bush #43, although a disappointment, was BETTER than Obama!

    No question Donaldus Magnus is far superior.

    Bush Jr. is a McCainus Anus establishment as swipe and was a terrible president, although an infinitely better choice than Al Gore or John Kerry.

    We need to keep talking about how effective Trump’s agenda is for the good of all of America. He will have a statute one day!

    Trump! He has the best interest of the citizens at heart. George Bush is in the Clinton’s pocket!

    We choose America over globalization and President Trump chooses the people over the money grubbing politicians.

    LOL! Little Georgie Bush? 95% to 5%. LOL! I voted for Bush Sr. and Bush Jr twice, but never again will I ever support another Bush. Spendthrift GWB was the reason the Republican Party left me after 45 years of dedication to it. They then became the Repugnant Party in my eyes.

    President Donald Trump is bringing me back into the fold. However, we should get rid of all of the RINO and Establishment Repugnants or form a new “Populace” Party. President Trump is saving our nation from all those who are actively working to destroy our country starting from Barry Obungler Soetoro on down.

    And oh, by the way, all that hatred and divisiveness that has bred since the Bushes, Clintons, and Obamas have been in power was due to the fact that people killed helpless babies and funded special laws for special people who hate the Lord God Almighty. People especially that are trained and funded by communist-socialist, like Saul Alinsky and George Soros, not to mention Larry Flynt. Please, if you call yourself a conservative and you love our American culture (football, basketball, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Future Teachers of America,…everything) read, study, and vote on the things that made us a great nation and that will keep us a great nation and leader in the world. We can’t partner with other peoples that don’t have our values to keep and preserve our way of life and pursue of happiness while living in this “perishing” earth. The people at our borders and many within also, ARE NOT LIKE US…the United States of America!

    I’m sorry but when Bush ran against Gore in 2000 the signal had already been given. Gore is defiantly a commie-socialist and Californian’s, especially Republican’s had already lost it to the communist-socialist teachers union here in California in 1992. Bush would be another so-called “One World Government”, fake Christian, that in Bannon’s speaking recently, “didn’t know which way to go?” The communist-socialist want a One World Government that dictates what everybody should look like, where they work, where they can go, who, what, and where you can worship. And oh, by the way, Article 71 of the former, failed Soviet Socialist Republic, is that you cannot worship the Lord Jesus Christ. The True and Living God. The teachers in Orange County have already paved the way for California to buck, (let’s say it correctly…defy, block, OBSTRUCT, hate), everything that a real protector of the working class would do, (like Donald Trump), in the State of California and the United States of America in general. The teachers union out of Orange County California got the Clintons elected here in 1992 and we knew Hillary was already doing what she had to make sure her husband could pave the way for her totalitarian rule which includes her and her husband being outside of the law. Don’t tell us that everybody didn’t see the communist-socialist hatred coming from people like Ron Brown and one of the most hate-filled cabinets in history, until the virtual unknow Obamas came along. This included shutting down the military bases and selling them to the oncoming Chinese invasion. The Chinese already were putting into place a way to assert their business here while the native born population were killing every developing baby they could with taxpayer funded abortion. They have been coming right here to Orange County for vacations to have babies and all the documentation to bring their children here to knock out all the communist-socialist branded RACIST, White Supremacist,…whatever they want to call you, from getting those slots in higher-education. Now Californians don’t have the jobs they use to and people that live out and away from the inner cities will suffer even more as the communist-socialist squeeze the working class, born in the USA, population to death with gas taxes. We didn’t need all the “illegal” Mexican pickers either that cover up the real situation at the borders, allowing criminals and terrorist to fill our overcrowded neighborhoods and jails with more entitlement seekers, (check out all the law suits in the California Dept of Corrections for medical, etc. and look at the salaries for state workers…no where on earth like this), but we should have had a program already in place to make sure the border was secure, jobs were secure, higher education was secure, identity was secure,…you name it, it wasn’t secure. But the communist-socialist (Democrats) already had put in place a way to use them to change the voter base. Many conservative areas were taken over in the Inland Empire due to congolmerates (invested in by the teachers unions) from Orange County California buying up all the apartment complexes which use to be run by conservatives with ways to keep non-working, non-paying, entitlement seeking peoples out but now HUD puts them in the neighborhood to vote for communist-socialist propogandist, who hate legally-born, working class families, that worhip the Lord. And then you get the San Bernardino Massacre at a office Christmas Party? What we have left of Republicans here are those that live off the establishment in Washington, DC, they are not conservatives but “swampers” buddying up with the communist-socialsit Democrats. That DC neighborhood is packed out with communist-socialist (Democrats) that hate, dumb, uneducated, conservatives??????? The State of California is getting set to overthrow the government of the United States, even if the Clintons and Obamas fail at it, (and maybe the Lynches, Comeys, and Mueller thugs too). Does anybody care that Eric Holder is here working against the government of the United States and that the former mayor of San Francisco that broke the marriage law that had been voted in by Californians is going to take the reins from Jerry, who by the way has already signed a treaty with China? Corruption in California government is deep. Even the two-sided favorite Arnold couldn’t deal with it but who is he but a foreign born communist-socialist too. Nah, Bush wasn’t good for the country and people were foolish to vote for a person named Obama when its the same name as those who were attacking us from all corners of the earth. Obama a person who grew up in a country that burns Christian churches, sometimes more than one a day. Obamas only love the money they are getting from the revolutionary organizations they form and associate with. They want to destroy and put in chains the very government that allows freedom. They want to “transform” it not “preserve” it like they were suppose to. A country that was born different, a Republican-democracy! No country has ever been like ours either. All other governments lead by fear, not of God but the fear of the State, man. Nah, the One World Bushes were not good for the virtuous, God-fearing, working class people of the “real” United States of America. Please wake up Californians, this government (California) will not let you live has you have in the past. The Lord has established Trump, by His grace and mercy, please support him and get rid of the communist-socialist that are obstructing his agenda to protect this country. Search your heart Californians, search your heart Americans, don’t let your deceptive and evil hearts fool you. A government that isn’t by the people and for the people will not stand against the evil of this world. And yes, pray to God that He will have pity and mercy on us all because He may use the evil of Islam (which means to submit) and its tyranny to utterly destroy this planet. Globalism is communism-socialism, taught by every college in this country now. They want a One World Government. If you can’t “discriminate” between right and wrong you will live like those that worship Beelezubub and hell was created by God for them. Make and keep America Great while you can still do that, don’t give it to the “foreigner”.

    Bush is the worst president after Jimmy carter , thank god his brother lost , this bush family is a loser

    October 21, 2017,8:35 am

  21. Bill Thweatt

    Bush was and still is part of the Illuminati, the DC Swamp and the one world order. The Bush empire would not even endorse, support or vote for their own party’s 2016 Republican Presidential nominee, Trump. Trump represents the concept of “We the People” NOT “We the government”. Read Mark Taylor’s book “The Trump Prophecies”. Trump has been chosen by Almighty God for a “Time such as this”!!

  22. Terry A Maurer

    Bush will down in history as the worst US president and his father as the second worst president. Both mainly for the stupid worthless Iraq wars which have caused untold loss and misery for millions of Americans, not to mention the entire Mideast!!! Terry A Maurer author of ‘Dirt Farmer’s Son.

    Bush was part of the “establishment” just like his dad, his brother, Dole, Romney, McCain and the current crop of traitorous globalists who are selling out this country to line their own pockets. May they all rot in hell.

    Trump has at least shown some intelligence.

    If you know the Bush history, you have to vote for Trump. Read Ingrum’s book.

  30. Joe Zeimet

    I like both. Both are/were given bad unfair press coverage. I give the nod to Trump because he is not a politician by choice. He is doing this purely out of concern for the American people, while W had too many favors he owed people to do what he really wanted.

    So thankful Trump is our President. We needed a president who was not a politician someone who was going to be for the american people and Trump was our man. It’s been a fight with some Democrats and some Republicans because they are against him. But we are winning and he has kept his promises to the american people. I think they never thought he could do what he has done for american. We love you President Trump!. George Bush stay at your ranch.

    W. was an illiterate idiot. Everything he accomplished in his life is because he happens to be a Bush. If his name was Smith or …Lorenzetti the best he could be would be a vacuum salesman in Waco, Texas.

    I voted for GB both times but very soon after his second term began I was not a GB fan.
    GB Senior was the one who began pushing a One World Order.
    He was a member of Cross and Bones, also the Council on Foreign Relations, he was also our United Nations Ambassador.
    Now to get back to Bush Jr. he leaned to the left a little too much which could have also been referred to at that period of time as a R.I.N.O.
    Then came the worst nightmare ever – Barack Hussein Obama.
    He has over his 8 years in the Whitehouse caused more friction, anger, divisiveness, and angst.
    Among all citizens in America.

    Since the 2016 November election, I learned how corrupt the Bush’s really are. I was very disappointed to learn about that, sorry George.

    Trump will go down in history as one of our greatest Presidents. In my opinion, surpassing Reagan — Trump already deserves a monument!

    Our President, ‘DONALD TRUMP’ is a genius! Our president, DONALD TRUMP is sticking it to the media, especially CNN and the American people LOVE it. CNN is collapseing violently inward. YES American journalism is collapsing before our very eyes! Hallelujah for TWITTER!

    Bush was always on the side of the “Swamp Loony Tunes. He did alright his first term, but his second term he went with the flow. One very good thing about Bush, he did bring back patriotism.

  49. Roger Broyles Sr.

    You want to know what really fascinates me is how the left is always crying about Trumps involvement with Russia. Hillary and her husband took millions from Russia and the Dems point the finger at Trump and Sessions. The problem is the corruption is so deep in the FBI and CIA that poor little Jeff Sessions is scared stiff to assign a neutral special prosecutor to investigate the obvious.

    October 20, 2017,5:19 pm

  50. Roger Broyles Sr.

    Without any reservation Trump is an outstanding President. Don’t take my word for it just look at unemployment, stock market,GDP, etc. It amazing what he has accomplished with most of the media against him. Could you just imagine what he could accomplish if they were only fair. He is a true American and wants to make our country prosper.

    George Bush is an intellectually deprived person who turned into a naive mass murderer.

    Don’t worry. Trump can still beat out Bush as the worst President, but he’ll have to start an unnecessary war on the scale of Iraq to do it.

    A deadly conflict with N. Korea could do it.

    October 20, 2017,5:01 pm

  53. Kitty Carlisle

    You’ve got to be kidding. I wasn’t crazy about Bush after getting into Iraq, but Trump is just itching for a nuclear war… probably use it as a diversion to the Russian probe. He’s up nights worrying about what’s coming out. And as far as Bush goes…. you think he wasn’t rich before becoming a President? He comes from money…OLD money!

    Without a doubt Trump is. Bush is to busy backstabbing the Americans in the back, like Obama bush didn’t help Americans with Katrina like trump did. Bush was also during his presidency getting drugs here

    President Trump became president to help America. He doesn’t need the money nor the aggravation. I feel that most politicians need to wake up and smell what they’re shoveling.
