Former big government Republican George W. Bush, considered by many to be the worst president in American history, with the exception of far-left Democrats Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, has been largely silent in regards to politics since he ushered in the Obama Regime with his failed presidency.
With the exception of his 2011 comments demonizing anyone opposed to open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens and foreign invaders as “nativist,” “isolationist,” and “protectionist,” the eldest brother in the Bush Political Family Dynasty has been out of the political process, silently watching as Barack Obama destroys America.
But as his little brother Jeb Bush’s campaign crashes, George W. Bush decided to go on the attack — not against Obama or the anti-freedom Democrats. Shoot, GWB didn’t even go on the attack against his “sister-in-law,” Hillary Clinton.
Nope, the second biggest deficit spender in American history, who expanded the size of government at rates never before seen prior to Obama and with Republican majorities for much of his presidency, went on the attack against the GOP presidential candidate who many — including Rush Limbaugh — consider to be the most principled conservative in the race. Ted Cruz.
At a fundraiser for little brother and fellow RINO Jeb on Sunday in Denver, Politico reports that several attendees were shocked that the normally polite (except apparently regarding authentic conservatives who keep their word) George W. Bush attacked his former employee, Ted Cruz.
Politico reported about the Bush fundraiser:
“I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said Sunday night, according to conversations with more than half a dozen donors who attended the event.
One donor in the room said the former president had been offering mostly anodyne accounts of how the Bush family network views the current campaign and charming off-the-cuff jokes, until he launched into Cruz.
“I was like, ‘Holy sh-t, did he just say that?’” the donor said. “I remember looking around and seeing that other people were also looking around surprised.”
“The tenor of what he said about the other candidates was really pretty pleasant,” another donor said. “Until he got to Cruz.”
It should come as no surprise that George W. Bush would assist his little brother in fundraising, considering the rate at which Jeb’s campaign has been burning through cash, having spent over $11 million last quarter, with his campaign showing over $404,737.38 in debt, and is being outraised by political newcomer Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, who spent less than $7 million last quarter.
Several big donors indicated that Bush sees Cruz as a major threat to his little brother, especially across the coveted South, and said that Cruz had “hijacked” the Republican Party.
Ted Cruz issued a statement in response to the Bush attack, responding with class and grace as he is accustomed to do:
“I have great respect for George W Bush, and was proud to work on his 2000 campaign and in his administration,” Cruz said. “It’s no surprise that President Bush is supporting his brother and attacking the candidates he believes pose a threat to his campaign.
I have no intention of reciprocating. I met my wife Heidi working on his campaign, and so I will always be grateful to him.”
Ted Cruz has been on the attack against feckless GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate, and has been exposing what he refers to as the “Washington Cartel,” the crony relationship between big business, lobbyists, and lifelong politicians in both parties, aligning big business with big government, all at the expense of the American people.
Many, including FOX News anchor Bret Baier have given Cruz credit for the downfall of John “Bendover” Boehner, who recently announced he would vacate both his speakership post and his seat in Congress.
So while George W. Bush, who slept through the Tea Party movement, and sat on his thumb in self-imposed silence while Obama slammed through the near trillion dollar “stimulus” plan, Obamacare, illegal amnesty, IRS targeting of the Tea Party, EPA tyranny, the Iran Deal, and Obama’s unconstitutional royal edicts — big brother Bush finally decided to go on the attack — against consitutional conservative, Ted Cruz.
It’s pretty obvious who the Bush’s see as a long-term threat in the presidential race — Ted Cruz.
