Colonel: I’m ‘Extremely Disappointed’ in George W. Bush


U.S. Air Force Col. Jim Waurishuk sees it wrong that former President George W. Bush criticized so-called isolationalist ideas of the current president

During the “The Laura Ingraham Show” on Friday morning, Waurishuk stated that he was baffled as to why Bush, who was silent for eight years during Obama’s term, decided to speak now.

To remind you, in New York on Thursday, Bush said the American people need to “remember our values” and to reject “casual cruelty.”

“My first thought was, ‘Why is he doing this?’” said Waurishuk. “I served under [Bush]. I served all my tours in Iraq and Afghanistan under that president. I was extremely disappointed in the fact that he came out and made that speech at all … Where was he during the previous eight years? … [Obama’s] administration seemed to be totally disengaged from America’s resolve, America’s role in the world.”

According to Waurishuk, this isn’t the right time for Bush’s speech, now that Trump is trying to reassert America’s leadership role in the world.

“We are trying to reintegrate America, put America back as a leader in the world,” said Waurishuk. “Pushing the globalist rhetoric was extremely disappointing to me.”

Waurishuk went on defending retired Gen. John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, when he himself defended the president and attacked Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.).

“This president probably more than any other president, certainly in my time … has surrounded himself with more combat-proven military leaders and general officers,” said Waurishuk. “He has their advice and he seeks their advice, and their advice is there when he needs it. So to say this president was insensitive in dealing with a casualty notification or a condolence call … is unfathomable.”
