mike castle was no one’s dream of a republican senate candidate, but he could have been controlled once he got there. you support the party leadership, or you find yourself subcommittee chairman of rural juvenile delinquency.
clair mccaskill was toast until todd akin spectacularly failed biology — on television. all candidates should have been on red alert from that moment forward that the insects in the local media were going to try to set our candidates up on abortion. Mourdock should have been prepared.
and sharron angle . . . sigh. Would sue lowden have been so bad?
what an insulting comment to all who cherish our Constitution and believe in individualism.
Bush was a rabid socialist pretending to be a conservative.
Statist Bush did nothing to reign in government, nothing at all.
Bush created the evil Medicare Part-D, he supported the insane TARP, ethanol subsidies.
The evil Bush let the evil Ted Kennedy take the lead and WRITE the No Child Left Behind Bill.
Bush deserves nothing but utter contempt.
You loved Bush? LOL pathetic.(P.S. His tax cuts were a total joke)
FR certainly attracts some incredibly sanctimonious people. “Agree with me, or God hates you and you use the constitution as toilet paper!”
Horsecrap. calling GWB a “rabid socialist” is barking, raving crazy, FFS.
How many servants and flunkies do your think George Bush and Laura employ theses days? I have no idea. I know that George W Bush grew up with a lot of them.
I don't think it's so much that they had so many, but that they never seemed to be able to function without them, and that they had so much contempt for those of us who had to mow our own lawns.
If Bush is so fastidious about keeping his mouth shut, let him keep his mouth shut about politics. But he has to pick and choose for his own spiteful reasons--and trying to force amnesty on the US is one of his spiteful reasons.
And we know how the Bush women LOVE them some abortions! I read about it in precious Laura's autobio.
And people who claim he was such a bad candidate allow much more garbage from liberals. Look at Joe Biden, who is so much smarter than Sarah Palin.
All the Bushes care about is trying to maneuver Jeb the Obese into place. And I'm sure there are lots of Jeb supporters here on FR.
Agreed. I’m a “true” conservative. Just not a moron. Bush was, is, a good man who loves our country and defended it well. Romney was not my first, second or third choice, but Nobama was definitely my last choice. When it was time for choosing, I voted. Millions did not, in a stand for “purity”. We have the mess we have today as a direct, imo, result of our side not voting because the wrong guy got nominated. This was, objectively, a vote for all that has happened since. This will continue to happen. “No more rino’s” equals “bring on the marxists”.
Sickening choices, to be sure, but we can not walk the country back the destructive path it is on in one leap. The marxists have gotten us here incrementally. We will have to go back the same way. Baby steps.
IMO- Bush was nothing but a liberal (R) who saddled us with the Patriot Act.
We now expect to be sold out, and look for it, and value so much the more a Republican who shows a little faithfulness to America, rather than a squad of people who wipe off the Bush toilets everyday.
I wonder if America did not do a lot better with Clinton and an opposition Congress than we did with Bush and a compliant liberal Republicanism...
There would be just as many bannings now for anti romney posts had he won. Even after signing more gun control into law and derailing any questions of repealing the individual mandate is obama/romneycare. Take a look at some of the posts here about romney since the election. Most posters are just pissed at him for losing, with his words and deeds in service of big “do as you’re told” government getting some mention.
My thinking is the same
I don’t know why he was so hated
I thought what he did was brilliant.
The democrats always in the past ran up the tab leaving responsible behavior to the Republicans who would cut the budget back. The democrats could then be outraged about the curelty. The Republicans were being played like a fiddle.
So Bush knowing that, played a giant game of chicken with them. He didn’t cut their ridiculous programs. Likewise didn’t have to take the brutality from them over cutting the programs.
The wars were expensive but had to be done. The democrats have frittered away those expensive gains and positions.
Now the democrats are blindly livid over the fact that they have to be responsible for cutting a couple teensy programs. Democrats are like spoiled children, they want what they want and they scream and cry if they are held to the standards of adult behavior.
Any Republican who doesn’t want his picture taken with Bush is trying to be popular with the Democrats. Democrats are the Bush haters. As clearly illustrated by Bush’s father, compromise with a democrat will gain one a kick in the teeth. Democrats are unreasonable and there is no point in hoping unreasonable people will perform reasonably.
oooooooh, do I detect a little class envy here?
sheeh I have employed people too and I am just surviving—when I was just coming out of the hospital after a long stay I needed a nanny to care for my two little children, drive me to the doctor and do laundry. I have had people clean. I have had someone cut the grass occasionally, or shovel the walk. Do you hate me? Or am I providing income for someone that freely contracted with me for same?
You are just unhinged over the Bushes aren’t you?
I agree with you about Jeb though, no thanks. He let Terri Schiavo get tortured to death in his state.
He should have closed the borders on 9/12/01. How can you fight a war and leave our country wide open. He should have nuked the middle east and walked away saving our men from dying for a long war that has no end in site.
BDS is even worse with some conservatives than the obamites. maybe they think we should redistribute a little wealth. that'll teach those damn bushies.
Let's not forget the Department of Homeland Security.
Unhinged? I think not. The Bushes never stood up for themselves; they rely on surrogates such as TurdBlossum, Dana Perino, and Nicolle Wallace. They want to remain above the fray, in the classic modus operandi of a patrician.
Jeb is just "third verse, same as the first and second."
