After almost 8-years of relentless “Bush bashing” by Obama, it seems that the gloves have finally come off and the former president is finally speaking out. In a closed-door meeting over this past weekend the former president took Obama to task on his foreign policy decision and slamming the pending nuclear deal with Iran and referencing it as “naive.”

President Bush according to a report in the “Bloomberg View” did quite a bit of bashing of his own warning that the deal between Iran and the U.S.A. would be bad for our national security. The former president who has refused in the past to criticize his successor was speaking on Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas warned that new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani appears "smooth," but said: "You've got to ask yourself, is there a new policy or did they just change the spokesman?"

And aside from what appears to be an unrealistic deadline of trying to finalize a nuclear deal with Iran by the end of June, at the heart of the pending Iran deal is a commitment by Iran to roll back its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

And although Obama has repeatedly assured the world community that whatever sanctions have been lifted could immediately snap back if Iran cheated. The former president however knowing of Obama’s propensity for putting politics above national security isn’t convinced that will happen.

According to Bloomberg the former president was quoted as saying: "You think the Middle East is chaotic now? Imagine what it looks like for our grandchildren. That's how Americans should view the deal,"

Bush also reportedly accused Obama of putting the U.S. in "retreat" and criticized Obama's efforts to check the rise of the Islamic State and his decision to take all troops out of Iraq after 2011, and called ISIS Al Qaeda's "second act."

The former president also echoed former Vice President Dick Cheney in summarizing Obama’s entire foreign policy and national security efforts as being dangerously naïve.
