George W Bush's Response to the Dallas Shooting Differed Greatly From Obama's Reaction Mike Vance July 8, 2016 News George W Bush and his wife issued a statement of sympathy and support after the terrible shooting happened Thursday night. Five lives were lost and seven others were injured. While Obama is pushing his agenda of banning powerful weapons, Bush sent out this incredibly powerful message. What an amazing tribute to the heroes that lost their lives. Perhaps if Bush was in office there would be a committee in charge of addressing the issue that is the BLM movement. In a time of need, Obama is focused on dividing this nation while former president George W Bush makes an amazing statement to pull us together.
