Bannon On Bush
#1
Oh Boy, Steve Bannon is mincing no words when it comes to the Bushies, especially Junior 43, when he refers to them as “the last Whigs” because “the Republican Party that they talked about is essentially over.”

In hindsight, I have to agree with Michael(mv) about Junior, because he failed to succeed at his major attempts to seek victory following 9/11. Here's what he said about the Bushs:

Quote:“It says something about Bush that Bush is here attacking, once again attacking President Trump and being just as vitriolic as possible. I’ll reiterate this: I think President Bush 43 will go down in history as the single most destructive in the United States – and I include James Buchanan in that, the president before the Civil War,” he asserted.

“Now, what do I mean by that? He had three major policy initiatives that virtually destroyed the country. Number One was the Iraq war, $6 trillion in Iraq and Afghanistan, the wars still haven’t been won. Iraq is as big of a disaster as it’s ever been. It’s caused total chaos in the Middle East. And it was either he outright lied to the American people or he’s just totally incompetent and misread what the information was,” he charged.

“The second was the financial crisis,” Bannon continued. “The financial crisis happened on his watch. It came to a head in September 2008. He just walked away from it, didn’t come up with any solutions. The thing was a debacle. We still suffer from that today. The solution was to, you know, flood the zone with liquidity, trillions and trillions of dollars of liquidity have inflated assets and made the owners of equity and real estate filthy rich, and the working men and women of this country have gotten stiffed after they had to pay for the bailouts.”

“But the most important part of what he was destructive about is China. It was on his watch they really set in motion Most Favored Nation and getting into the WTO. I know the Clintons pushed that and tried to implement it, but Bush looked at China, the whole Bush administration said China is going to get wealthier, is becoming more democratic, and more free-market capitalist. That was a massive, massive mistake,” he said.

“China today is a competitor-slash-enemy, having economic warfare against us, of incalculable power. That started with the Bush administration. He is the single most destructive president in the history of the country, and I include James Buchanan in that. For him to come and attack President Trump is an absolute disgrace,” Bannon concluded.

I don't think I'd go quite that far, but he really did screw up our fight with the two tar babies of the Middle East: Iraq and Afghanistan. We've squandered trillions, maimed and killed thousands of the country's military youth, and we are still stuck in the two tar babies, with no way of getting loose.

As for the second problem, he did get the Fed to print money out of thin air, which really didn't accomplish much but prop up inefficient corporations. Nothing was really accomplished.

About China, the jury is still out on that one. But I'll go along with the part about both of them being "Old Republican Party Whigs". They All need to be Whigged out.
