#2 Just a reflection of his establishment mentality. GW sat down in Texas painting by numbers and keeping his mouth closed while obama walked all over the constitution and regularly blamed GW for any and everything.

The least you could do is afford the same to Trump.

#5 Trump makes W look weak and ineffectual on a daily basis.

Question: Would the world be any worse if Gore had been elected in 2000?

#7 Would the world be any worse if Gore had been elected in 2000?

Minor variations on the same Deep State theme.

W never said squat about Baraq but he has a grudge against Trump because Trump beat the crap out of ¡Jeb!.

#8 Yes. I'm glad Gore was never president and I'm very glad swillary was never president.

#9 If we had President Gore in 2000 we probably would have had a Republican in 2008, probably Guilliani.

#10 Abu nailed it,GWB lives for revenge. Many think that GWB would have been happy to run the Texas Rangers baseball team into the ground for a career, but he felt compelled to run for governor and President as payback for Clinton beating his father in 1992.

It's kinda like that as one grows older. Outliving the bastids is also a reward.

#13 Trump makes you look like the milqutoast you are.

#15 Imagine if he had said "Islam means submission" which is a more accurate translation from what I understand.

#20 Reagan's 11th Commandment, but please W, be quiet, your time is over, and you didn't fix so many things. After a trillion dollars and all these years in the Graveyard of Empires later, how is that nation building idea working out?
