Prescott bush was fined a million dollars for dealing with the nazis, and later served briefly as the treasurer of Planned Parenthood. George senior was one of Reagan’s most vocal opponents as head of the CIA, prior to Reagan’s Presidential run, and was chosen on poor advice as his VP running mate. George senior then went on to squander the Reagan gains and further taint the GOP brand throughout the 90’s, ushering in the anti-semitic peanut farmer. His son as President embroiled us in two middle east conflicts, one of which resulted in an “islamic republic”, and the other which continues to this day under questionable rules of engagement, and has resulted in no tangible positive gains for the US other than lucrative military contracts and a severe stagnation of the domestic economy. He also presided over an open border with mexico, paying it lip-service, floated a big amnesty program that was eventually shouted down, then as a final gesture bailed out failing banks (mostly in europe we found out later) with US taxpayer money, adding further to a then historically large national debt and ushering in our first openly communist president. Now Jeb Bush promises to “reign in the teachers unions”, hoping it will strike a chord and catapult him into the frontrunner position as the Presidential candidate for 2016. We just don’t seem to learn from our mistakes.
An excellent summary. It will doubtless irritate the party peons.
