George H. Bush calls Dick Cheney "Arrogant" and "Iron ass." Oh now it's on!

Courtesy of The Guardian: 

Former US president George HW Bush has hit out at Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, two of the most senior figures in his son’s administration, labelling them too “hardline” and “arrogant” in their handling of the 11 September attacks. 

A new biography of the 41st president – Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey Of George Herbert Walker Bush – reveals that Bush Sr held Cheney and Rumsfeld responsible for the hawkish stance that “hurt” his son’s administration, Fox News reported on Wednesday. 

“The reaction [to 9/11], what to do about the Middle East. Just iron-ass. His seeming knuckling under to the real hard-charging guys who want to fight about everything, use force to get our way in the Middle East,” Bush told Meacham in the book, which is due to be published next week.

Of course Papa Bush does not extend the same criticism to his son:  

“He’s my son, he did his best and I’m for him. It’s that simple an equation.”

Well what did you expect?

Still Bush senior coming out against Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the response to 9-11 is huge.

And it comes at a rather inopportune time for Darth Cheney as there is a resolution about to be introduced to the Senate to honor the former VP and war criminal:  

Starting in December, the likeness of former Vice President Dick Cheney will grace the U.S. Capitol, in accordance with a Senate tradition honoring former vice presidents. 

The Huffington Post was tipped off by a Senate resolution "authorizing the use of Emancipation Hall in the Capitol Visitor Center for the unveiling of the marble bust of Vice President Richard Cheney on December 3, 2015."

Yeah well they better plan on having around the clock security because I CANNOT imagine a more likely target for vandalism than a bust of Dick Cheney.

Personally my all time favorite fantasy is seeing Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Rove, and Wolfowitz all marched off in chains to serve out the rest of their lives on a federal penitentiary as war criminals.

      Condolezza Rice had no authority to call for war, to invade another country. The Congress and the President decides that.
      Don't try to lay blame on her.

    I'm with you on the fantasy scenario. I hate what these radical idealogues have done to my country. And the danger they have placed the entire world in. I believe that history will not be kind to the Dubya Administration. The swaggering cowboy with no brain. Worst POTUS ever.

      I don't know why Bush Sr. could not persuade his warmonger son to not invade Iraq. They knew Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction.
      So Bush Sr. should stop trying to blame others. I know others played a part in urging Bush to start a war. The BUCK STOPS AT THE PRESIDENT!
      Bush wanted to be a war president, these are his own words. He wanted invade Iraq to get rid of Saddam and all of Saddam''s sons. That is evil.

    OH HELL NO

    George H Bush is a Republican and he needs to tow the party line and not put attention onto Cheney and Rumsfeld fuck ups and concentrate on tearing down presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and current President Obama.

      The entire world would applaud that sight. What happens in THIS country, with poor decisions, resonates world wide. We are seeing the results of piss poor leadership from the gop right now with the rise of Isis. Enough citizens of the world are full of hatred for the US that if a gop/tp clown makes it into the WH, the world will end soon after that. We will ALL be blamed for electing such idiots as "leaders".

      When the Kennedy brothers were all riding high in their leadership positions, Poppy Bush said "Wait until they see what MY boys will do" Well, we have seen, and it ain't pretty. Not an honest one in the family. Read "Bushwhacked" by Molly Ivins, or "The Bush Crime Family" Very informative books. People KNEW how dumb these Bush guys were, there was a lot of covering up to do to get any of them into high office. Poppy had to BRIBE people to get W admitted to those Ivy League schools he supposedly attended. W was drunk for his first interview at Yale, they turned him down, then along comes Poppy, checkbook in hand. As McCain said one time about Dubya "He is as dumb as a stump" Not only dumb, but not too bright just like Jeb!

  11. The book is to save face about Jeb not making the grade to be elected as President. How purposeful to circumvent the real reason Jeb will be kicked to the curb. He does not even act like he wants to be our President. He can not elect his mother to be Vice President and have the whole family living in the White House. Or would they build a new house on the grounds to house all of them as advisors to Jeb.

      He would do what W did, fly home constantly. Leave the leadership to the same clowns who ruled the country when W was in office. For the Bush family, being President is an easy job, with excellent pay and benefits. THAT is what Jeb! is after. W get anywhere from $200,000 to $250,000 for giving speeches! Who pays to listen to him speak? Poor, poor Jeb! THAT is not in his future, he has exposed the true Bush family and all their misdeeds. Bumbling ass can not even campaign with any feeling, he thought he would be a shoo in for the job. Since it is not easy, he has given up. No hard work for their clan, eerything has to be handed over on a silver platter. I am glad Poppy has finally had to face the facts about his idiot sons. No wonder that grimace if fixed on his ugly mug.

    This is an attempt, I think, on Poppy Bush to stem criticism of W, and Jeb's response to questions about W and Iraq. Bush the elder trying to protect the shit stains that are known as his sons. It's all Cheney and Rumsfeld's fault! W is innocent! He was duped and manipulated and lied to! Forgive him and then vote for Jebya. But he forgets that W himself told the world that he was the 'decider.' Remember??? Poppy Bush once referred to Jeb's kids as 'the little brown ones.' Go away, all Bushes.

  19. That piece of excrement Cheney is having his statue displayed in the Senate too. It's some sort of custom for past Vice Presidents.

    Whatever.

    That custom needs to DIE with him. How appallingly obscene to display his image in a place of supposed Democracy.

    I hope it is continually vandalized until they haul it away and lock it in a closet.

    Poppy should watch what he says, those two crooks know where ALL the bodies are buried. They could spill the beans on Jennifer Fitzgerald, and their 10 year affair. All the one night stands, both male and female also, too!! Is it true he is called Poppy because of his ties to the poppy/heroin trade from Afghanistan? When he was running for the presidency against Bill Clinton, his side dug up all the dirt on Clintons sex life. When the talk about Fitzgerald started coming out, he refused to talk about it, even sent Georgie out to state "All the talk about the A (adultery) word is not true" So, either Poppy lied to junior, or Georgie knew and lied. Poppy os a wimp, and the Time magazine ran a story about "The Wimp Factor" The aides advised him to pick a woman VP, to attract voters. Kathleen Schroeder from Colorado spoke up and said "Well, they will STILL need a MAN on the ticket" Got a big laugh with that one. Poppy IS a wimp and his "boys" are just like him. Battleaxe Barbara is the one with the balls in that family. My late husband always thought she looked more like his mother than his wife.
