It would be great if they truly were the last of a certain type of Republican

"Both former President Bushes had choice words for current President Donald Trump in a new book scheduled to be published later this month, with the elder Bush reportedly calling the billionaire commander-in-chief a 'blowhard' and flatly stating he does not 'like' him.

Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd top executives respectively, spoke to author Mark K. Updegrove for the book 'The Last Republicans.' It detailed the relationship between the father-and-son presidents and how they were fretful of what Trump had done to the Republican Party.

Furthermore, both ex-presidents admitted they did not vote for Trump. The elder Bush pulled the lever for Democrat Hillary Clinton while the younger told Updegrove he voted for 'none of the above.'”

More proof that the guiding "principles" of the ruling class, whether Democrat or Republican, boil down to a fondness for the warm, cozy smell of the inside-the-beltway corral, an abiding sense of comfort in the predictable machinations of professional politicians.

I hope there's a genuine and lasting reason for both of these RINOs to be "fretful" about what Trump has done to the Republican Party, because, from where I'm sitting, it looks like the Trump shake-up may lead to the final destruction of the complacent, ineffectual and voter-oblivious party that the Bushes did so much to sustain. Time to face a bitter truth, H.W. and W.: Trump is your legacy.

George H.W. was too much of a nonentity for me to care about him, but George Jr. has disappointed me greatly these last few months. The upside is, the RINOs are mostly old and will be dying off before long. The downside for me is, I'm old too, and mostly held together with chewing gum and baling wire, so I may not live long enough to see the last of them, but I'm sure going to try out of sheer spite.

Sure hope you last a long, long time. I'll be happy to share my chewing gum...the unchewed portion, of course. The world, and especially Paco nation wouldn't be the same without you.

Aw, thanks, Deborah.

You mean well-educated, tactful, and gracious?
All evidence points to the fact that they are indeed the last of a certain type of Republican.
The current leadership certainly seem to genuinely represent the Yahoo values also held by the constituency the GOP has been cultivating in recent decades.

I would wager that "sheer spite" is the engine that drives your entire being.
