George W Bush has not a chance in Hell of being allowed to return to politics in USA , but keep up the good work in Africa and it might get you to Heaven ,by a very narrow margin. .!

The outright arrogance of this JACKASS is mind-boggling!

"Bush said he had no intention to "get involved in the politics or the specifics of policy". But he added: "I do hope there is a positive resolution to the debate, and I hope during the debate we keep a benevolent spirit in mind and that we understand the contributions immigrants make to our country."

This may be the single issue GWB has been on the right side of all along. He tried to spend some of that "political capital" on it during his presidency. It may be partly because his brother is married to a woman of Hispanic descent or it may be somewhere deep in there he has a beating heart. But he has never been on the same page as the republican party on this issue having all along supported a path to citizenship for those here already. It is probably the only thing I have ever agreed with him on. If he is going to dip his toe in, this is a good place to do so as his party desperately needs someone with vision to speak to them on this issue. Oh, he'll never be back "in" the way he was, probably not even as other president's have been, but on this issue, I agree with him. Get it done Congress. That means YOU, House. It is the right thing to do which I do understand makes it very hard for you, but George was right, we ARE a nation of immigrants all and we should never forget that.

This arrogant dogpile has no chance of winning any election. Tbaggers have to be really desperate if this is the best they can offer. He stole 2 elections. He owns a diamond mine and some land in Africa. I'll bet that is what he is really tending to over there. I truly hope he is doing something good, but I don't believe a word he says to anyone.

With warrents for his arrest out for him in 'other nations' I think he best just stay home and play with his lego's.

OMG I hope to hell NOT! Please vote all republicans out of office in every state at every opportunity. If I could afford to send them for mental health counseling I would but I'm not a Billionaire.

I sincerely hope not. His time in politics should be over and done with since it was disastrous to say the very least.

Not a chance in hell, as a matter affect he still has a date with HELL, for the war crimes that he has not be charged with talk about a total abuse of power.

We may be a nation of immigrants but this isn't 1920. We have about 11 million unemployed and heaven only knows how many stopped looking or are under-employed.
Although jobs were added to the economy, we haven't halted legal immigration of about the same numbers every year. And I'm not talking about the illegals who are already here. So if you think the unemployment rates will go down....dream again.

I never ever did believe a word that he said as 99.9% of politician's are total liers,they are in a club of there own. How any of them can sleep is beound me....

Oh isn't he statesmanlike! He should be PROSECUTED by the U.S. and other governments for stealing two elections, going to war on the basis of the big lie about Saddam having WMD's, committing war crimes and otherwise subverting the Constitution.

This "arrogant dog pile," ought to be playing with Legos in the federal lockup!
Technically he, and his partner in crime, Dick,can still be impeached, but the amazing stir that would crete would be to the benefit of the party he rode in on.
Do Americans have the shortest memories in the entire universe? Shorter than the memory of a paramecium?
His rating is going up? What's that called, "He hasn't hurt me recently?" He, and his legacy continue to hurt, as I type, and will, for years to come, just look at the Supreme Court! And on, and on.
He was only the most recent part of the GOP's continuing redistribution of wealth upwards.

I sincerely hope not. The only thing that I have ever respected him for is that he has kept his mouth shut since he left office.

There are quite a few people who missed George W Bush, the Iraqi guy with the shoes has confirmed his aim has improved and will get the bugger the next time: right between the eyes. Politically he created a moral vacuum and stole two elections and presided over one of the most amoral and disastrous presidencies in decades. Every business he was involved with failed which is the only thing he has been consistent with. But, then people have got wind of it.

After lying to get us into wars on two fronts, I doubt very much if "Baby" Bush would be taken seriously by anybody but the Tea Party and some of the Religious Extremists.

Bush is almost certainly not trying for more electoral politics. However, he may hold significant clout within the Republican party, so he may be trying to play politics within his party.

If anyone remembers, in many ways, Obama's program reflects Bush's belief in the pardoning of immigrants who have been living in theis country - I don't recall for how long. Bush was also against building a barrier between the US and Mexico.

Hard to believe, but it looks like the dumbest and most incompetent President ever may be the smartest Republican in the land. WOW!

But that's damning with faint praise, my parrots are smarter than any Republican politician. Say more rational things too. Well, the Greys do, they hold sentient conversations, the others are on Bush's level.

John Gregoire, you are right, the last 5 years have been horrible, but only because of Republican obstructionism. Without the Republicans we'd be back in boom times again.

Millions followed Napoleon and Hitler too. The 1st & 2nd antichrist. Bush is a metaphor for the entire republican party. Not many are but he's dead to me.

No. No. A thousand times---no. His support of immigration is only because it would bring a cash cow to contractors planning to militarize the border. Dumya always has an ulterior greedy motive.
