Barack Obama spent eight years in the White House blaming George W. Bush for everything that went wrong during his Presidency.
But then something changed.
And now Barack Obama confessed one thing about George W Bush that no one saw coming.
Whenever a Republican President is in office Democrats accuse them of being a racist, sexist, or a homophobic war criminal.
Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush all faced these insults.
But when they leave office and another Republican takes their place the fake news media and Democrats develop a “strange new respect” for them claiming they were the picture of moderation and “honorable” Republicanism compared to the current occupant of the Oval Office.
That is exactly what is happening with George W. Bush now that Donald Trump serves as President.
Barack Obama spent eight years blaming his failures to kickstart the economy on Bush.
But in a virtual fundraiser for Joe Biden Obama sang Bush’s praises as a way to attack President Trump.
“We, I think, were overcoming a decade in which the possibilities of common work and common purpose had been diminished and downgraded and government had been starved of the resources that were needed to make us a more equal and just and compassionate society, and yet, I have to say that the foundation stones, the institutions we had in place were still more or less intact,” Obama stated.
Obama then praised Bush – who he routinely slammed for starting a “dumb” war in Iraq – for respecting the rule of law and keeping Americans respected in the world.
“My predecessor, who I disagreed with on a whole host of issues, still had a basic regard for the rule of law and the importance of our institutions and democracy,” Obama added, “On the world stage, there was still a sense that America needed to lead, and that that leadership meant that as imperfect as we might be, there were certain ideals and values that were going to aspire to and advance.”
Obama’s praise for Bush as someone that championed human rights would strike those that lived through the Bush Presidency as bizarre considering Democrats blasted Bush as a Pol Pot like figure that tortured innocent Muslims for fun as part of an allegedly out of control war on terror.
“That we cared about human rights, we cared about battling against the oppression of peoples in distant lands,” Obama continued. “And that we try and uphold — both in our own country, but around the world — certain core principles around rule of law, and the universal dignity of people, and the need for us to provide assistance for those who were suffering either from natural catastrophes or because of underdevelopment.”
Obama then took a cheap shot at Senate Republicans and Fox News by falsely claiming they were not honorable public servants or a news organization and instead acted as Donald Trump’s propaganda enablers.
“What we have seen over the last couple of years is a White House enabled by Republicans in Congress and a media structure that supports them… that suggests facts don’t matter, science doesn’t matter.”
