George W. wins America back: A majority of Americans like Bush for the first time since 2005
By Daily Mail Reporter: George W. Bush always said history would judge his time in office favorably. Apparently eight years was enough. For the first time since April 2005, more Americans have a favorable view of the divisive former president than a negative view. A new Gallup poll reveals 49percent of Americans have a positive outlook on Bush. Only 46percent have negative opinions on him.
In an interview by Huffington Post to George W. Bush during the Warrior 100K three-day mountain bike ride hosted at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, the former president said, “ You know, I don’t feel sorry for them, because they don’t feel sorry for themselves.” The liberal media may twist the answer into something sinister and heartless but it’s true. You cannot feel sorry for people who don’t feel sorry for themselves. There were 73 riders who joined this year’s bike ride. Bush since he left office has been busy helping veterans and meeting with them.
Bush added that none of them are angry about their injuries – that’s why they are with the former president having fun. He added to a “certain extent you can’t help it when men get hurt in the battlefield” – NOTE: war is not a party zone, it’s a battlefield zone where lives are lost and injuries are expected. When asked if felt responsible for their injuries, Bush answered “Well, to a certain extent you can’t help it, because if I had not made the decisions I made, they would not have been in combat. On the other hand, every one of these men were volunteers. None of them are angry. They themselves don’t blame anybody. And I believe strongly the decisions I made were the right decisions.”
Bush also said, “I don’t long for fame. Nor do I long for power.” Compared to Obama who is obsessed with celebrity fame and dictatorial power, Bush has always been a decent man. Thousands of lives were lost in the Iraq war but millions of Iraqis are now living in freedom without Saddam Hussein because of the brave heroes who volunteered to fight for liberty and freedom from tyranny. Clinton envied 9/11 wishing it happened under his administration because Clinton knows history will paint him as the president almost impeached for having an affair with a young intern named Monica Lewinsky, but history will paint the Bush legacy with great strokes of truth and boldness. Bush legacy was removing Saddam Hussein and giving millions of people in Iraq the freedom they deserve. That’s better than Clinton, much even better than the historic failure of empty-suit-but-Air-Force-One-frequent-flyer Barack Obama. Among the three, Bush is the winner.
George W. Bush had tears welling in his eyes during his speech at the dedication of George Bush Presidential Center. He cracked jokes like there was a time in his life he “was not likely to be found in a library, much less found one” but concluded the speech with tears in his eyes saying that America’s best days are ahead.
Dignitaries from countries like Israel, Korea, Georgia, Spain, Australia, UK, Ghana, El Salvador and Italy attended the dedication along with five US presidents past and present. The 40,000 crowd that attended the dedication also had a glimpse of Bush father, George HW Bush, who was on wheelchair.
Bill Clinton delivered a funny speech that made even Bush laugh. He said that he had a couple of conversations with Bush during Bush second term and added, “A chill went up and down my spine when Laura said that all their records were digitized. Dear God, I hope there’s no record of those conversations in this vast and beautiful building.”
Barack Obama praised Bush also in his speech for being a “good man” and a man of compassion and generosity who “takes the job seriously but does not take himself seriously.”
