Trump, GW Bush and Oneupmansship

: January 18, 2020

I feel what GWB and Trump have in common is that both are trying to “one up” others. Bush was trying to one up his father. His father was involved in a multi national coalition to get Saddam out of Kuwait, and correctly stopped short of regime change. GWB had to go further. Though it’s possible that he really believed the WMD stuff.

Trump is one upping Obama on the red line in Syria, on undoing the Iranian nuclear deal which was skillfully negotiated by John Kerry after Obama correctly got rid of Hillary Clinton as secretary of defense.
