Trump Blasts George W. for 9-11 Attacks

With the House Republicans running the Benghazi partisan witch hunt against Hillary Clinton have unwittingly opened the door for much deserved attacks of George W. Bush's failure to protect the nation against the 9-11 attacks.   If Hillary is liable because Benghazi occurred on her watch, then Bush is liable for the 9-11 attacks.  Now, Donald Trump has seized the opening and gone on attack referring to George Bush's "reign."  Talking Points Memo looks at the this entertaining turn of event.  Here are highlights:

“He was President,” Trump said. “Blame him, or don’t blame him, but he was President. The World Trade Center came down during his reign.”
Trump asserted that unlike the George W. Bush, he would be “a leader” who could command the United States during national crises. 

“I think I’m much more competent than all of them,” Trump said, referring to George W. Bush and President Barack Obama.  “Say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,” Trump told Bloomberg. 

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush took to Twitter to criticize his GOP presidential rival for the remarks, writing that his brother “kept us safe.”
