Obama Says George Bush Had a ‘Basic Regard for the Rule of Law ‘

Former President Barack Obama (D) says he disagreed with former President George W. Bush (R) on a “whole host of issues,” but the “institutions what we had in place were still more or less intact” after his presidency.

During a virtual fundraising event with former Vice President Joe Biden (D) on Tuesday, Obama sought to blast President Donald Trump by comparing him to the previous Republican president. 

“Things were tough in 2008, 2009. We were going through the worst recession since the Great Depression, a massive financial crisis. We were still in the midst of two wars,” Obama said as he reminisced on the beginning of his presidency.

He continued, “We, I think, were overcoming a decade in which the possibilities of common work and common purpose had been diminished and downgraded, and government had been starved of the resources that were needed to make us a more equal and just and compassionate society, and yet, I have to say that the foundation stones, the institutions we had in place were still more or less intact.”

However, Obama said, “My predecessor, who I disagreed with on a whole host of issues, still had a basic regard for the rule of law and the importance of our institutions and democracy.”

“On the world stage, there was still a sense that America needed to lead, and that that leadership meant that as imperfect as we might be, there were certain ideals and values that were going to aspire to and advance,” he added.

Obama explained, “We cared about human rights. We cared about battling against the oppression of peoples in distant lands. And that we try and uphold — both in our own country, but around the world — certain core principles around rule of law, and the universal dignity of people, and the need for us to provide assistance for those who were suffering either from natural catastrophes or because of underdevelopment.”

In comparison, Obama said, “What we have seen over the last couple of years is a White House enabled by Republicans in Congress and a media structure that supports them. That has not just differed in terms of policy … that suggests facts don’t matter, science doesn’t matter.”

  1. You “cared” and your rattled on about them but you DID NOTHING to fix them in fact you made them worse than ever

  2. So the worse one is making out he was the best. Love Biden sitting there griming did his brain go to sleep. Didn’t think much of Bush or his father myself but They were better than Obama ever was and he is trying to get back into the white house. Yes he did 2 terms but you think he cares . Why you think he tried to bring down Trump.
    Got to admit Obama did one thing he got lots of people with brains leave the party the rest suffers Trump mental illness. Had one today in a cab. He brought it up about Trump. He said Trump is trying to take everyone healthcare. Didn’t say anything. He blow up. So your with Trump. Said yes and Trump wanted to get you better health insurance. He said no that is a lie. Said you never heard of repeal and replace . He said it is a lie he never came up with anything. So told him they said you could keep your doctor came out to be a lie. He said they gave me 3 and I did pick my own. I said how about if you have a doctor for 35 years and they tell you to get rid of him. He said no one has a doctor that long. Said I do. And they said no insurance can turn you down if your very sick. That isn’t a lie but now the doctor either don’t tell you or he don’t treat you anymore. He said that is a lie. Asked are you on Medicaid he said yes how you like it? He said it is great. Told him it was before Obamacare but not now. They call it rationing insurance so you get a blood test before you get a MRI then wait 6 months to get it. Plus your medicine are you getting yours. He said yes. I said well am not . Am on pain medicine but haven’t been on it for a month and a half. The doctor put no substitute but CVS told me the doctor changed it. So the pill went down the toilet because was on it but they don’t work on me. So when the doctor office called told them why should I treat with him when he goes and changes my medicine and the doctor put me on it he is just a nurse practitioner I want to talk to the doctor. They called back and said it was a mistake. Now I wonder how many mistakes they made. Then explained to him about the law. To save money on medicine they hire a insurance mine is Welcare classic They only want you to go to CVS. If you want to go to another you lose your medicine. My doctor put me on a medicine to restore my bones it was 1600 for 4 shots a month. But after I was butchered which happens a lot on medicaid I was in the hospital for 1 month but that was before Obamacare the doctor left because of Obamacare because he didn’t become a doctor to let people die. But after the month in rehab the doctor tried to put me back on the shots but the insurance turned it down. The 4 shots had gone up to 4 000. They put me on 2 shots that didn’t work but it cost 5,600 . Now that is a savings. That doctor stopped treating me and left. I fell because of weakness and damaged my spine and neck and my shoulders are gone. That why the pain pills .
    Now the insurance or CVS brought each other out they had to because now their card for store bonus is in both their names. Why would CVS PAID to do it. But both make money but the law doesn’t say they can. And when Well care wants to go over your medicine they say you need to talk to their pharmacist it is CVS. I called medicaid but seems today they hire people who sit on their brains. So if your happy will bull in your life good you get it.
    But by doing this it’s like Cuomo killing off the elderly to save on his budget. Lots of people in mass has committed suicide because their pain medicine was taken away. Looks like that is why the demarcates pushed Obamacare.

  3. Penix: “Er… near every living president has spoken out against the current president in some form.”

    So F-ing what?? The presidents speaking out about Trump are why this country is in the mess that it’s in!!!

    Too bad Carter (another presidential disaster) outlived Ronald Reagan. He’d have a different take,

  4. However, Obama said, “My predecessor, who I disagreed with on a whole host of issues, still had a basic regard for the rule of law and the importance of our institutions and democracy.”

    As he drone striked a wedding party. Obozo was the king of record drone strikes. What a clown.

  6. Ah so, the former ghetto thug in chief speaks. Millions believe he and his gang are behind the anarchy happening across the nation. PS, Bush and his daddy were closet democrats.

    1. What makes him a ghetto thug?

      And many may believe, but if they cannot provide even a vague amount of proof then there’s no reason to believe them.

      1. Have you forgotten what Obama did before he became an Illinois State Sen.?
        Consider the totality of his entire history from boyhood mentored by a card-carrying communist Frank Marshall Davis. Some of us have done our homework and know what we are talking about when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama.

        1. No and I haven’t read anything that would justify being called a ghetto thug.

          Why don’t you explain with proof since even after google searching i can’t find anything close to what you’re implying. You are making the claim – its your job to justify it.

          1. You don’t read enough and don’t talk to the right people. Know someone who said the beast seat had to be wiped down of white power when he got out. I first found it hard to believe. But remember his school picture were he had white power up his nose . But now I wonder who was his suppler .
            But don’t worry we will all find out soon. When every city in this nation will be like Chicago .
            Obama said Bush knew about law. Well so does Trump and his stuff. They hired lawyers to fight fault charges . Seem Obama is still in charge of the F.B.I. like the IRS. All the charges seem to be falling away. And black lives matters bet Obama be caught up with them as well. Also George Soros who is sending his money around the world to start trouble. Oh sorry not his money. He help steal the money from Jews then turned them over to the SS to be placed in a camp. Barr needs to send him to Israel to stand trail for war crimes.
            But if we could dig up Hoover even those he wore a evening grown to diner parties he took out the F.B.I. But now we got a shithole for agents.

  7. And what would know about the law? He surrendered his law license as did Mrs. I’m no longer a lawyer either. And how many past Presidents slinked back in to DC to criticize a sitting president?

    1. Er… near every living president has spoken out against the current president in some form.

      1. You just made the point. None of them until now and only this one. A bunch of lifelong politicians crying because an outsider is doing their job better than they could.

  8. Oblobo is a f**king hypocrite, his boys started the Flynn and Trump headhunts, I wish him and all his ilk death by leprosy and syphilis.

    1. At least in Biden’s case, ya got dementia!! Not quite syphillis and leprosy, but there’s still time for the others….

  9. When VP Biden suggested that General Flynn be charged under the Logan Act, it showed that not everyone in the Obama administration was interested in the rule of law. Administrative coups are not the way to overturn a legal election.

  10. Too bad Obama never had that same regard for “rule of law”. The turds he left behind for President Trump were enormous and still being uncovered.

    Like a dog that just shit on the rug, Obama will get his nose rubbed in it eventually.

  11. There has never been a greater attack on America’s

    Constitutional, Democratic, Rule Of Law foundations

    than the unceasing one being waged by THE TRAITOR

    trumpuke and his TRAITOROUS Rephucklican

    apologists, enablers, and supporters.

    1. WTF do YOU know about The Constitution?? The United States is a Representative Republic. NOT a Democracy as you morons like to parrot after your Democrat slave masters.

      1. You are so right Mr. Black.

        “Do not separate text from historical background.
        If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution,
        which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”
        — James Madison (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
