The Bush "dynasty"

The politics of meh. Patrick Howley reminds us that it was largely a combination of opportunistic conservative posturing and substandard opponents that enabled the Bush's to win elections (when they won elections).

I've got nothing against the Bush family, personally. H.W., W. and Jeb at least seem to be basically honest, decent men. But they're not fit to lead a revolution, because they either don't grasp the extent to which progressive ideology has undermined our traditional values, or perhaps because, at some fundamental level, they agree with some of the progressive movement's imperatives. We don't need dynasties (whether the name is Bush or Clinton).

I must agree with you, Senhor Paco. The US should not do "dynasties". Bush The Elder should have overthrown Saddam after his defeat in the first gulf war. Thank you Collin Powell, supporter of the Socialist Obomber.

Unfinished business was taken care of, after an almost failed strategy, by Bush The Younger.

Then it was all thrown away by Obomber The Only.

Sorry, Bush The Kid does not belong.

No more Bushes, no more Clintons, and no more g-dned Kennedys.

Amen to that!
