Bush Plays Golf Too, But His Reason For Teeing Off Might Make Obama Want To Break His Clubs

Being the president is a fairly difficult job with gobs of responsibility, which is why most Americans don’t mind when the Commander-in-Chief takes a little down time here and there to hit a few on the fairway. The problem is that Barack Obama has more or less moved out of the White House and taken up permanent residence on the golf course, ignoring most of his responsibilities, and making a complete mockery of his office.

While Obama hits the green and wastes taxpayer dollars, former President George W. Bush provides a living demonstration of the definition of class by delivering remarks at the fourth annual Warrior Open golf tournament in Dallas, Texas.

According to Young Conservatives, the tournament features 36 holes and is designed to honor true American heroes: veterans. Bush released a short statement online before delivering his speech at the event saying, “We will crown a champion.”

While the former president certainly had his faults, it’s hard to argue about his love and admiration for the military–something he was famous for during his time in the White House.

Contrast this with President Obama’s attitude toward the military, and it becomes clear he’s not a fan. Obama has repeatedly insulted the men and women of the armed forces by trying to cut their pay, sending active duty members out on tour “pink slips,” and has ignored the advice and counsel of his generals on how to properly deal with global terror threat ISIS.

Hopefully, President Bush’s example will begin to seep into Obama’s pores, snapping him out of his progressive coma and enlightening him to the critical role our veterans play in keeping our nation safe. These amazing individuals certainly deserve more from their Commander-in-Chief.

WATCH: George W. Bush Just Revealed What Bothers Him The Most About Obama’s America

Bush

Is it the fact that Barack Obama hasn’t sought his advice on how to deal with an inflamed and highly unstable Middle East?

Could it be the relentless barrage of blame that Obama and his supporters have heaped on him?

Watch the interview that Fox News‘ Brian Kilmeade did with President George W. Bush at The Bush Center’s fourth annual Warrior Open golf tournament, and find out what Mr. Bush says bothers him the most about the state of the nation, six years into Obama’s presidency.

Hint: it has to do with American exceptionalism.

WATCH: Pres. Bush Just Exposed Barack Obama’s Major Fail On Islamic Terror In A Big Way

G. W. Bush

Seven years ago, before leaving the White House, President George W. Bush issued a stark warning about pulling out of Iraq too soon — a warning that has since proven remarkably accurate in the age of Obama:

Bush, in 2007, had delivered a prescient warning about what might happen if U.S. troops withdrew too early. He said at the time this would risk “mass killings on a horrific scale” and potentially draw U.S. troops back into the country.

Now, in an exclusive interview just aired on Fox News, Bush told Brian Kilmeade how he knew what would happen:

Bush said: “I know the nature of the enemy.”

“Anybody who kills 3,000 innocents and beheads people because of their religion or because of their point of view is dangerous,” Bush said.

In the Kilmeade interview, Bush, in so many words, essentially told the “impatient” and misguided Obama administration, “I told you so.”

Bush II commented on President Obama’s current air campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, saying it’s the result of what Obama didn’t do.  Bush told Fox News that he agreed with Obama’s military advisers who urged Obama to leave a capable, residual force in place when it pulled out at the end of 2011.

By clicking on the video above, you can see what President Bush had to say about his successor’s military moves in the Middle East, as well as his remarks on whether his brother, Jeb, wants to be president.

Bush Bombed 4 Countries, But Guess How Many Countries Nobel-Peace Prize Winner Obama Bombed?

bushobama

If a Republican President bombed 7 different countries right after winning a Nobel Peace Prize, do you possibly suppose that at least one major news media outlet might, perhaps, report that there might be a little incongruity in this?

But despite the media silence on this matter, and no matter how much Democrats wish this issue would just disappear, the score still remains: When it comes to total countries bombed, the score sits at Obama 7, Bush 4.

But Obama may still just be ramping up. He may go for an all time peacetime bombing record–if he hasn’t set it already.

Peace time? Bombing? Am I missing something here? Since when do we have a right to bomb other nations if we’re not at war? For that matter, why on earth did Obama first arm those fighting against Syrian President Assad in a flagrant attempt to overthrow his government? One year later, he changed sides and is bombing the living daylights out of those who dare attempt to overthrow Assad.

But apart from his reasons, lack of reasons, and total flip-flopping on who to bomb and when, Obama has bombed: Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Libya, and Pakistan.

Right winger Bush only bombed Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Pakistan.

War is supposed to be a last resort, not a first choice. And often, a nation is dragged into a fight in sheer self-defense, whether it is protecting one’s family against an armed intruder or one’s country against an armed invasion. In such cases, a soldier puts his or her life on the line, knowing they are fighting a righteous battle; and if they lose their lives, they are willing to do so for a noble and moral cause–protecting their loved ones against a clear and present danger.

But today, when our overseas soldiers are greeted by Barack Obama, instead of saluting them and explaining to them the noble and righteous cause they are fighting, he simply raises his coffee cup.
