VIA| President George W. Bush is a class act who has spent more than six years avoiding attacking President Barack Obama. That’s because, in his view, Presidents shouldn’t criticize each other. Former President Jimmy Carter was a constant annoyance throughout the Bush presidency, as was President Clinton… and Bush wanted to take the high road. Bush has always respected the White House and the job of Commander in Chief too much to disrespect it.
But Bush is also a patriot. And President Obama’s tyrannical and illegal actions are so dangerous that Bush just broke his silence. He felt like he had to speak up on the lifting of sanctions of Iran, because of the serious danger that puts America. Iran wants nuclear arms, and Bush – more than anyone- knows how scary that is. WOW:
According to multiple reports on a closed-door Saturday event with Jewish donors, Bush offered his harshest public assessment of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.
Bloomberg’s Josh Rogin reported that Bush said Obama had caused the US to “retreat” around the world and that Obama had charted the wrong course in his nuclear negotiations with Iran.
“He also said Obama was misreading Iran’s intentions while relaxing sanctions on Tehran too easily,” Rogin wrote of Bush’s remarks at a Nevada event hosted by the Republican Jewish Coalition. “Bush said that Obama’s plan to lift sanctions on Iran with a promise that they could snap back in place at any time was not plausible.
“He also said the deal would be bad for American national security in the long term: ‘You think the Middle East is chaotic now? Imagine what it looks like for our grandchildren. That’s how Americans should view the deal.’”
Bush further criticized Obama for pulling US troops out of Iraq too quickly in 2011, though Obama has insisted his hands were tied on the matter. Both Rogin and The New York Times reported that Bush quoted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and said, “Pulling out of Iraq was a strategic blunder.”
“Several attendees sensed a tacit critique of Mr. Obama and his failure to follow through on his threats to use force when Mr. Bush said ‘you gotta mean it’ when talking tough, and that America’s allies and enemies needed to know where an American leader stood,” The Times’ Jason Horowitz and Maggie Haberman wrote.

Not only has Obama wiped away most — if not all — success in Iraq, but now he is ensuring a dangerous enemy can wipe Western countries off the map with lethal weapons. Thank you, President Bush for breaking the silence and speaking out!
