George W Bush Hosts Wounded Warrior Weekend at His Texas Ranch

Russ Steele

Once again George Bush demonstrates his humanity, dancing with a wounded warrior.

This is a Class act! George W at his ranch for Ft. Hood TX wounded warrior wee-end.  I have never seen any photo of President Obama participate in a similar effort for our wounded heroes?   Have you ever seen a photo of Obama doing this?  Just think, Bush has nothing to prove and isn’t running for any office. He is a class act during a time when we need real leaders. [Like Bush’s shoes.]

    George was and is a class act. Humble and just plain nice. The loony left mistook that for dumb. But he kicked their butts twice and I loved every minute of it.

    • John Wallerich says:

      What a sick and delusional response about a man who is a global war criminal, a monster of a human being, dumb as a bag of rocks. And the comment about Obama is pretty common given the extreme racism from the right. Obama wakes up in the middle of the night to go to airbases where dead troops are arriving to salute their arrival. Bush NEVER did this, and in fact made it illegal for our free press, supposedly protected by the Constitution, from ever photographing caskets of dead troops. Illegal. He did that so the American people wouldn’t see how many dead were coming back. Yeah, he’s a real class act.

      And to be clear, Obama is the one who brought our troops home. If you love our troops, you don’t lie to send them to war.

      • Russ Steele says:


        What Airbases does Obama go to so he can salute the dead troops coming home? Lets be specific and then provide some evidence for your claim, like news stories, photos, etc.

      • theotherkevin says:

        To be fair, John, Obama did do it once, VERY early in his presidency (Oct 2009), and only for the publicity he thought it would bring. When he found it did little to help his ratings, he stopped. Bush did it often, but out of respect for the dead and their families, avoided the media circus that accompanies presidential visits. He forbid the press to do it for the same reason.

        In the last 50 years, Democratic presidents (in or out of office) have a very poor history of spending their own time with America’s fighting men and women. In fact, they avoid them for the most part. That’s simply not true of their Republican counterparts.

  2. Arthur M. Day. says:

    Devout Democrats, being so low they have to look up to see down, can not learn that you do not raise yourself by putting others down. But if they didn’t denigrate and lie, they would be mute.

    “I have never seen any photo of President Obama participate in a similar effort for our wounded heroes. Have you ever seen a photo of Obama doing this?”

    Get real, ever heard of the internet, ever watch the news or read a newspaper? President Obama has spent lots of time with our wounded troops and their families. Get real. I could post 100’s of examples if you like, here’s just two:

    • Russ says:

      Only when the Press is present.

      • Rush, you are right. I’ll also add that he does so only at the taxpayer’s expense. Keep in mind the photo above is on Bush’s private ranch, and is not the first time. Of course Obama participates when it is at the White House or during obligatory military hospital visits. Even the MSM would pound him for refusing those opportunities.

        Steve, if you have so many examples, please find one where Obama is actually dancing, or even engaged in a private one-on-one conversation, with a wounded warrior. You won’t convince me otherwise.

      • ABSOLUTELY! Photo opps! Obama will be there, sucking money out of the taxpayers pockets for some leftwing money losing proposition that was pushed through behind closed doors & not passed by the legislature.

      • Nick says:

        You mean like the photo op of Bush in this article? Every President uses the press, both Democrats and Republicans. Neither party is exempt from this practice, so let’s not demonize one party over another for what they both do. This is called hypocrisy.

    • Barbara says:

      Your first link has a White House speech, no actual involvement by President Obama. He stood on the Lawn while they cycled around him. Your second link has a picture of Obama, but the main article is about Bush, on a “Why I vote for Democrats” site. Try again…

  4. Mona Durham says:

    A remarkable caring president and a true patriot!

    • Absolutely. He served his country in uniform and also as a humble,but generous man as a responsible & caring president. Mistaken for slow or dumb by some left wing nuts, but open & honest & dependable. A giver, not a taker.
      Unlike the current president, he is a man of his word and honorable

      • bigyaz says:

        Ha! He did everything he could to avoid active service.

        He should be good to the wounded warriors. He’s the one that started the wars that left them wounded!

      • Russ Steele says:

        And your proof of this claim is what? If you have some we would love to hear it. Bush was a F-102 Pilot and they were not deployed to Viet Nam. They were air defense aircraft, not attack aircraft. Even though there we were at war in Asia, there was still a need to defend the nation with air defense aircraft like the F-102

      • Beulah says:

        A man of his word would not have lied about Weapons of Mass Destruction to start a phony war which took the lives of countless Iraqis and continues to take the lives of our armed services personnel…GWB is dancing his way to perdition and he wants to take us with him

      • Russ Steele says:


        What is your evidence that GWB lied about WMDs, when Congress, the Brits, France and Germany also thought Iraq had WMDs. Did they lie also? Or, do you just have a case of George Bush Derangement Syndrome?

  5. Jason Wheeler says:

    It’s great the Pres Bush does this, but why when extolling the virtues of one individual is it necessary to slam another one, in this case Obama? I don’t understand why bi-partisan politics has to be dragged into this while showcasing a great effort that Pres Bush is doing. In my opinion, it just cheapens the story.

  6. When comparing one to another (presidents for example) is one way of determining value of anything. Obama is great when compared to mao, but when we speak of a recent president, the obvious standard would be the current one.

  7. Mike says:

    This photo was not taken at the George W. Bush ranch. This photo was taken at the Warrior 100k ride in April 2012 at the George W. Bush Presidential Center. And if President Bush had not engaged us in war with Iraq under false pretenses this veteran might still have both her legs. How wonderful a man is this?

    • Russ says:

      I approved you comment, but disagree with your conclusion. What is your proof that GW Bush deceived the American public. The global intelligence communities thought Saddam had WMD, he told his General that he had WMD, which was reported through the intelligence channels. What is your proof of false pretenses?

    • Bob says:

      The ride is at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The party afterward is at his Crawford ranch in Texas. Yes, this picture is at his ranch. It’s an annual event that is part of the Military Service Initiative at the institute but not held there. These veterans were obviously very proud to serve under him. You have yet to prove the war was under false pretenses. Grow up.

  8. Wardie Turner says:

    What a guy!! For the information of Mike the ride is at his ranch. What is wrong if it was at the ride??? You just have to try to destroy a really decent guy doing a really decent thing. Just let it go. President Bush is not a demon. When President Obama does decent things, we give him credit, why can’t you do the same for President Bush?

    • Bob says:

      The ride is at a state park but all the festivities afterward is held at his ranch. Mike just can’t handle the fact that many liked President Bush including the veterans at this event. They are all true heroes. Mike is just another snake in the grass.

  10. Tiger Jo says:

    The point is that it’s a false assertion. If he truly cared about veterans he wouldn’t have sent them to their deaths and lost limbs under a lie. The man is in hiding for a reason, and the best he can do to help his depression – the reason why he’s painting – is to paint as a form of therapy – it was suggested by his doctor. But, really, rumors need to be corrected for a reason – to keep the truth, not the lie.

    “The Country Served that ‘Talks the Talk’, way too much and with symbols, especially the so called conservatives and that includes the veterans within those ranks, but very rarely ‘Walks the Walk’ especially through their representatives, federal and states!!

    TX-19 Congressional Candidate Neal Marchbanks – Veteran: 28 March 2014 – “Congress controls the budget for the VA and it is the fault of Congress that the VA does not have enough employees and that the facilities are too small.”
    Congress, in Veteran Marchbanks statement, are the people served and who representatives work for, or are supposed to!

    Why do Conservatives and much of the Country Attack the VA and it’s dedicated civil servant personal as well as the many needed volunteers!!

    Freedom Isn’t Free, We Paid For It, American Veterans!!
    Reality as to those of us who’ve served:

    They, conservatives, don’t seek a smaller government, that’s never been their goal. They seek a privatized for corporate profit government, with no accountability, regulations, built into what would be corporate run agencies contracted by them, no bid or for campaign contributions, and paid with the peoples treasury. and much more expensive to run and maintain, And we’ve been seeing just what those private contracts have been giving back, think the NSA and the military contractors and the costs for, off the government treasury, they Never mention the private sector, with their huge amounts of corporate cash especially in the executive suites, in the hearings or public displays, that handles similar issues, like hospitals and clinics as they attack VA personal when issues arise. Nor do they try to help the, under funded and especially with our wars, VA in overcoming, the VA does that on their own mostly, and in these past some five years with the help of the Executive branch and it’s Cabinet, and with what is allotted to them through the representatives of the people served!!

    “”26 March 2014 – In U.S., hospital-acquired infections run rampant””
    “”16 April 2014 – Children’s Hospital investigated five patient deaths from deadly fungal disease in 2009″”
    “”Patient slapping at St. Joe’s symptom of persistent problem at U.S. hospitals: bad behavior by docs””

    “12 years also is a long time. We now have a lifetime responsibility to a generation of service members, veterans and their families.” Dr. Jonathan Woodson 11 Sep. 2013: ‘With 9/11 Came Lifetime Responsibility’ {two tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, came with these two recent unpaid for wars, nor the results of, DeJa-Vu all over again from the previous decades and wars from! Ignore the many issues, by those served, no need to fund!}

    Sen. Bernie Sanders told Republicans: “If you can’t afford to take care of your veterans, than don’t go war. These people are bearing the brunt of what war is about, We have a moral obligation to support them.” February, 26th, 2014

    “If military action is worth our troops’ blood, it should be worth our treasure, too” “not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific ante by every American.” -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

    Where were the ‘offsets’ to federal spending as the rubber stamping, more then the off the books wars with no-bid contracts, was going on and claiming ‘patriotism’ for?

    This is the only comment I need to post, so you can comment amongst yourselves, but nothing you say will change the facts.

  11. Bob says:

    Tiger Jo. You call all this rubbish you wrote facts????? LOL Amazing how people like you can twist your so called facts around to suit your opinion. That’s all you have. Just your opinion. Anyone can go on the internet & paste & copy so called facts to suit their needs. Grow up and move on.

  12. Trent says:

    This guy is the real deal.

  13. Considering the photo IS NOT from a picnic at his ranch, The whole claim is a little curious. Since he cared so much ,he charged them 100,000 dollars to speak at an affair of theirs. That’s compassionate.. Lol
