Can We Hold Presidents Accountable? Hell Yes!

Nobody’s Opinion

For almost 8 long years, we have heard Obama blame the Bush Administration, for the economy, and the war in the Middle East. He has said that if Bush had not bombed Iraq, then this mess wouldn’t have happened and been passed on to him. And the economy was in such a mess, that it would take over ten years usually to come out of the recession. Not his fault….Bush’s.

Obama has been blameless. As if he floats above in the clouds and looks down upon us all with a halo and pities us all before his next putt.the elite

Obama has taken NO blame, whatsoever, for anything that has happened since he has been in office. Hillary pretty much says the same thing. Looking back, the last President that I can remember accepting blame for any of his actions, was Richard Nixon. And that was because his own party helped kick him out.

So….here’s the question: Is a President responsible for whatever happens while they are in office? (Or a Secretary of State?)

That’s the argument that Trump has made against former President George W. Bush.

Trump said this to Chris Wallace in an interview last weekend:

“Jeb [Bush] said ‘We were safe with my brother. We were safe.’ Well, the World Trade Center just went down. Now, am I trying to blame him? I’m not blaming anybody, but the World Trade Center came down, so when he said we were safe, we were not safe. We lost 3,000 people. It was one of the greatest — probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country,” the Republican presidential hopeful said. “With that being said,” he added, “I’m not blaming George Bush, but I don’t want Jeb Bush to say ‘My brother kept us safe,’ because Sept. 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country.”

No matter how ‘nice’ a guy George Bush seemed to be…like Obama, not ONCE did he take any kind of blame for that day, even though, it was blatantly clear, that neither New York OR Washington D.C., had any kind of serious protection that day. That in itself is shameful. They like to BRAG about our superiority…where was it on that day?twin towers two

Bush’s actions after 9/11, left many people in America wondering…what? We are going into Afghanistan and then taking out Saddam Hussein? Why? Because he once tried to kill your daddy? Because you needed to finish what your father didn’t? We…had NO clue.

We had…a frat boy, in the White House…we have one now.

The argument on the other side is: “Well, it’s not one man’s fault if we got attacked, the world is complicated. He should never be blamed for what happened. Was FDR blamed for the attack at Pearl Harbor?Pearl Harbor

No. He wasn’t. He should have been. FDR had received word several days before the attack, and didn’t pass the message on. Your top job as President is to defend your country here,  FIRST…not after the fact.

The same thing happened on 9/11. The information that an attack was imminent had been going on ever since the FIRST attack on the World Trade Center when Bill Clinton was in office.

Clinton could have killed bin Laden….he left him for Bush.

Jeb Bush, was of course, is now furious at Mr. Trump for attacking his brother:FDR

“Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things as though he’s still on ‘The Apprentice,'” the former Florida governor said of his rival for the Republican presidential nomination.

“My brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country, he organized our country and he kept us safe. And there’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that.”

The trouble is, at the time, of course, we all united. But then, when Bush got on his microphone in New York, and made his little speech in the megaphone, I’m sorry. I found it lame. Like, somebody told him he should at LEAST say something. And when he took his god damn time going after ANYBODY…getting permission from this country, and whomever..

I’m sorry. Weak. Lame. Was our military that devastated? We didn’t want him to invade ANY country, just kill the guys responsible for the attack.

But, George had bigger plans. He used that attack as an opportunity to invade the Middle East. Lots of good stuff there in the Middle East.

Ben Carson just said, that while he wasn’t going to blame Bush for the deaths on 9.11, he did blame him for not going after bin Laden. The American people wanted revenge. Bush, should have made SURE we got it. But then, there’s Bush’s relations with the Saudi Family….and those…trillions of dollars worth of minerals.

Bush obeyed their wishes. He left the man alone, and lied to the American people. “We don’t know where he is. “kris 63

Sure. Right. Obama…who needed SOME kind of foreign success after his horrible first four years, went and got him.

Today, on the Sunday talk shows, Bob Woodard said that the American people needed a Ronald Reagan, and Trump wasn’t it. Insinuating that Jeb Bush was.

NOBODY SAYS: Not in a million years does Jeb even come close to Reagan. Ronald Reagan would have said the same thing Trump is saying now about the events of 9/11.

“It wouldn’t have happened on MY watch.”

Ronald Reagan made the world safer by defeating the Russians. Both Presidents George H.W., and his son George W., have done pretty much the opposite. And when Obama got in: he just lit the match—-Fired up the engines…and put the whole Middle East into a burning hell hole.

Sorry Jeb. It’s wasn’t President George W. Bush that kept America safe the rest of his days in office, it was the American soldier, FBI, and ordinary citizens that did.

And that’s the big mistake that Jeb makes….acting like it was his brother that protected us all. He should have protected us…at FIRST.

So, the question is: Is Trump right for holding George W. Bush responsible for not protecting us?

In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Hell yes.” (Okay, I spoke for him. )
