Will Any Democrat Go On The Record And Explain Republican George H W Bush's Policies Were Horrible

Last edited Fri Dec 7, 2018, 12:13 AM - Edit history (1)

I have watched 6 days of media gushing over a bad president. Republicans can't get away with this whitewashing. They convinced "Americans" Reagan was some kind of saint. Reagan's policies hurt millions, and there was no push back at all. George H W Bush's policies sucked for most Americans, poor Americans, working Americans, and struggling Americans. He wasn't as bad as Bush 43, Nixon, or Trump, but that is a very, very, very low bar.

I hope some Democrat goes on the record and mentions the fact that Bush's Republican policies were horrible for all but oil tycoons, defense contractors, and the wealthy. They need to say this as loudly as the "media" and Bush's Republican friends have been pushing the narrative of how wonderful 41 was. Family man my ass. He taught his kid how to lie about WMD's, start illegal wars, and fool people who go to churches, and that's about it.

We can't let them (Republicans) get away with rewriting history this time.

Bush was a bad president for most Americans.

Period.

Someone has to say it now the whitewashing is coming to an end. I don't care if the Republican Pigs squeal.

It's not like he is here to defend himself and expecting his people to do it is like kicking them when they're down.

For this day, try to find *one* thing you agreed with him on, and try to celebrate that, or at least be reticent for his passing.

I can give you one thing: he called "reaganomics" "voodoo economics" and he was telling the g-d truth.

61. It has been said and is being said but his funeral is not the time.

Medhi Hasan's new book on the ignored Legacy of GHWB: War Crimes, Racism & Obstruction of Justice and his interview on Democracy Now. Plus Jerome Waldon's new book on The Legacy of GHWB are just 2 recent examples of His horredous reality. But he also was a War Hero during WWII yrs however corrupted he later became. If truth be known and Justice prevailed GHWB would have died in prison. Give me stolen millions and I would be quite the easy going gentleman. The truth is seldom revealed at your funeral.

7. Thank you!

There's a reason he didn't win a second term.

I was a working mother with two teenagers during his "reign". My son was an exchange student in Germany at one point in his presidency. I clearly remember my son telling me that Bush was hated in Germany and Europe. When he was about to fly home out of Frankfurt the State Dept. issued warnings for any American flying at that time.

There was a housing crash during his presidency also. We were transferred to another state and it took me an entire year to sell my house, and when it sold we got exactly what we paid for it ten years earlier. Remember the phrase - "It's the economy stupid." That was coined because of Bush Sr.'s policies.

9. Bush gave in to the extreme conservatives

He was never extreme. But if he wanted to be part of the club he had to play the part. I think that was a big part of his problem. He was never allowed to be himself. But he made that choice.

After Desert Storm his approval ratings were through the roof. Crazy high. Re-election was considered all but a certainty. But then the economy tanked. There was a huge recession in 1991 going in 1992 (and all during that summer). And he ran into possibly the greatest politician ever in Bill Clinton. Clinton made Bush look old and out of touch. Everyone says Perot swung the election but I don't agree--he took an equal amount of votes from both candidates.

And his policies were shitty Reagan policies that were starting to fail.

He wasn't a very good president but he was better than the POS we have now.

raised taxes. He was against supply side economics calling it voodoo economics... his worst sin was Clarence Thomas and Willie Horton but he also gave us Souter. I still don't care for him and his son was the devil but...he was not a Reagan type nor a Trump type.

It turns people off and isnít worth the trouble.

I think GHWB is a lot like Susan Collins. He had a moderate reputation, but it was mostly talk.

When push came to shove, he backed the right wing.

I'm not sure that, compared to what we had under his son and now with Trump that he was anything horrific. This isn't to whitewash his sins (he gave us Clarence Thomas) and/or say that he was anything great but, in historical context, I mean, he seemed pretty inoffensive.

57. This is the very reason why more discussion is needed.

War crimes in Panama.

Iran-Contra pardons and free reign given to secret operations to destabilize other countries without accountability.

Corruption in defense procurement that the current military budget is still rife with.

Not just the mere fact of Clarence Thomas, but replacing the greatest pro-civil rights justice of all (Thurgood Marshall) with a political hack that personally supervised the gutting of civil rights enforcement through his hostile supervision of primary federal agency charged with this task.

Willie Horton ad - the cynical use of the baldest Nixonian Southern strategy in the wake of the negative impact of Reaganomics on black lives.

Launching the war against Kuwait on MLK's birthday: January 15, 1991.

Embodying the leveraging of diplomatic relationships for personal gain, most clearly embodied by his relationship with the Saudi royal family.

Embodying the worst excesses of a patrician attitude that erects a wall between himself and ordinary people. At least Nixon walked out of the White House and talked to antiwar protesters. No way Bush would have done that.

Unremitting drug war rhetoric, even as cocaine trade profits were being redirected to mysterious sources.

This is all just from memory, without any sourcing. I very much disagree that GHWB was inoffensive, even though there are some additional, or alternative, sordid records that come from the GWB and Trump administrations.

Sometimes I try to stay silent while segregationists and patrician politicians are buried, but people should not be criticized for simply bringing up a person's political record. In fact, more people should be striving to understand such records. Or are we really down for letting false history stand?

30. I Did Not Mean Trash Him Or Trash Him Today - I Mean In A Week Or Two Have An Honest Discussion

About how horrible his conservative fantasy based / big oil friendly environmental policies were. We don't need to call him names, but simply tell the truth about how he helped the wealthy and ignored the struggling. How he used war for political gain. Run down the list without calling him names and attacking his "familyness" garbage.

Bush 41 was a conservative who's conservative policies only helped the wealthy. He did some good, and a whole lot of bad.

It is about pushing back against the vomit producing narrative we have had to suffer through the last week.

No one pushed back when they turned Reagan into a saint.

The victims of Bush, and Reagan's policies need to speak up this time. After a week or two.

The true legacy of Bush 41. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Set the record straight this time.

42. NO. It would not advance the cost of getting rid of Trump.

We need all the people who consider themselves to be "moderate" Republicans -- whether we view them that way or not -- on our side.

Now is not the time to disparage a GOP President who JUST DIED and who, by comparison, was not the evil pathologically narcissistic person that DJT is.

Then there are crises to finally face like climate change, dealing with the predicted loss of up to 40% of jobs (due to technology), fixing the tax structure (again) and dealing with the ballooning deficit, which will require a broad consensus. Again, we succeed in any of that unless we somehow manage to work with moderate Republicans.

Cutting social safety nets (like releasing the mentally ill onto the streets)
Iran-Contra
Swampy cabinet (until the pile of orange offal Dumpster came along)

The idea that the media is trying to deify Poppy like Saint Ronnie the Dead Bad Actor would make we laugh, except I want to puke. Just because they have an even more horrible piece of shit as their president doesn't mean Bush goes up their evolutionary ladder.

The Republican party has always been shit. They're just more blatant now that they have the filthy lying circus peanut as their figurehead.

I hope that Jimmy Carter gets at least as much of a funeral as Bush did. He, at least, is a man of the people, a genuine humanitarian who has made the world a better place. Bush did precisely nothing for his fellow man. Only money and power interested him.

Not saying this is an absolute truism, but I guess in GHW's case it fits.
