"My son is an honest man," Bush told members of the audience harshly criticized the current U.S. leader's foreign policy.Looks like Bush, Sr. is going down with the ship. I was never a fan of either Bush, but 'big pappa bush' was a reasonable man who I simply disagreed with, rather than a religious-nut-warmonger like his son. Now it seems like his fraternal instincts are leading him into very unreasonable territory.
"We do not respect your son. We do not respect what he's doing all over the world," a woman in the audience bluntly told Bush after his speech.
Bush, 82, appeared stunned as others in the audience whooped and whistled in approval.
A college student told Bush his belief that U.S. wars were aimed at opening markets for American companies and said globalization was contrived for America's benefit at the expense of the rest of the world. Bush was having none of it.
"I think that's weird and it's nuts," Bush said. "To suggest that everything we do is because we're hungry for money, I think that's crazy. I think you need to go back to school."
