MoveOn.org. Code Pink. International ANSWER. Congressman Pete Stark. You might be forgiven for thinking any of those were on the stage last night at the GOP Debate when, in his frenzied and repeated attempts to destroy Jeb, Donald Trump went 9/11 troof about George W. Bush.
First, he goes after the war, the intel, the WMDs, and basically the entire Bush presidency.
“Bush lied, people died.” That’s what Trump is saying. A familiar refrain to anyone who heard rabid lefties on the news every day back then.
Oh, but he wasn’t finished there. After bashing W. and trashing him over 9/11 while sniping at Jeb, he turned around and did it again after Marco Rubio delivered one of the best lines of the night.
Rubio’s line: “I thank God all the time that it was George W. Bush in the White House on 9/11 and not Al Gore.”
Perfect. Then Trump, misreading the crowd, the electorate, and the state this debate was held in, placed the blame for September 11th on Bush and not on the Clinton presidency. That’s not just bad judgment, it’s an example of him swallowing lefty talking points whole cloth. Something he is wont to do.
Going peacenick in a state with one of the highest military/veteran populations? OK then. Good luck with that.
