What hateful, repulsive, offensive and false nonsense you peddle.

It's a shame that party affiliation blinds so many people (on both sides) to the fact that there wasn't all that much difference between Bush and most Democrats.

Under his watch, we got TARP, No Child Left Behind, a push to give illegal immigrants amnesty, increased subsidies for prescription drugs, a VP who told us that "deficits don't matter", and a whole host of other things that would have you scream bloody murder if they happened under a Democrat's watch.

Now that the RNC is about to coronate another Bush, I suppose the party faithful will be making excuses for Jeb too.

But they are still liked in TX, which gave George P. some 74 percent in the 2014 primary for land commissioner.

George P. can play both the Bush card and the Hispanic card to get ahead. Other than his name, I fail to see what else qualifies him for land commissioner or even dog-catcher.

Bushes and Clintons are two sides of the same coin.

And now they are going to hedge their bets by giving us another “Bush vs Clinton” choice. Heads they win, Tails we lose.

Talk about an oxymoron... Conservative New Hampshire?

I call BS... The rest of the freaking country needs to completely IGNORE IOWA & New Hampshire...

I’m tired of working my a$$ off here in the South to see everyone fawn over the idiots in these 2 states...

Enough...

Gerald Ford’s the man. He’ll excite the party and get out the vote.
It’s George H. W. Bush’s turn.
Bob Dole - that’s the ticket!
We need John McCain because he knows how to compromise.
Mitt Romney will bring us stability and, um, stability.
Jeb!

Is there a pattern here?

it’s nice of you to speak for everyone.

So, you were all in favor of Santorum even though he was vilified here on the premiere conservative website for endorsing the wrong guy? Remember that?

Or, did that make Rick Santorum someone calling himself a republican when he was really a liberal in disguise......?

Look, we are in a world of hurt here. Hillary is going to be the nominee in 2016 and if you think she’s going to be easy to defeat, think again. The LAST thing we need is a once again divided electorate. For those who refused to vote for Romney (he just wasn’t conservative enough)......who, pray tell, WILL be good enough to gain your vote in 2016? There is no consensus whatsoever. It just seems that so many here on the premiere conservative website will be against the republican candidate, no matter who he or she may be. that way, those certain people can remain the ‘victim’.

It's been that way for as long as I've been here. As long as that argument keeps working, the Republican leadership knows all they need is a candidate that's just marginally better than the Democrat and we'll all fall in line to voter for the lesser of two evils.

Look where it's gotten us. Now we're going to do it yet again but expect different results this time?

Bush 43 started as a decent POTUS. The country couldn’t ask for better after 9-11.
He faded towards the end but he is still 100% better than what we got in the whitehouse now.

Bush 43's grandfather

(note that American International Corporation was formed in 1915 to fund the Bolsheviks, supplanting the prior funding provided by Jacob Schiff.)

The Bushes have long been money managers and agents of the financial elites.

from Wikipedia...

George Herbert Walker

"In 1900, he started a banking and investment firm named G.H. Walker & Co.[1] His family had developed many international banking contacts, and he helped organize the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Walker was known as the power behind the local Democratic Party.

In 1920, Walker became the President of the W.A. Harriman & Co. investment firm, and quickly arranged the credits that Averell Harriman needed to take control of the Hamburg-Amerika Line. Walker also organized the American Ship and Commerce Corp. to be subsidiary of the W.A. Harriman & Co., with contractual power over the affairs of the Hamburg-Amerika. W.A. Harriman & Co. (renamed Harriman Brothers & Company in 1927) well-positioned for this enterprise and rich in assets from their German and Russian business, merged with the British-American investment house Brown Bros. & Co. on January 1, 1931. Walker retired to his own G.H. Walker & Co. This left the Harriman brothers, his son-in-law Prescott Bush and Thatcher M. Brown as senior partners of the new firm of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. The firm's London branch continued operating under its historic name Brown, Shipley & Co.

Walker was a director of the W.A. Harriman & Company; Harriman Fifteen, American International Corporation; Georgian Manganese Corporation; Barnsdall Corporation; American Ship & Commerce Corporation; Union Banking Corporation; G.H. Walker & Company; Missouri Pacific Railroad; Laclede Gas and the New Orleans, Texas and Mexico Railroad."


Walker's son-in-law, Prescott Bush, was a partner at Brown Brothers Harriman.

W. Averell Harriman is worth a look at, having been a key member of the Wall Street-Soviet nexus.

Secretaries of State, Presidents, etc., aren’t just picked randomly, sorry to report.

If you’re a President, Vice President, or cabinet member, you’re working for global elites, and you would never admit that.

It’s always the same little club that those people are chosen from.

Sometimes they’re on the Dem brand, sometimes the Repub brand, but they ALL work for the same financial elites.

Yes, many of these guys are Yale, many are also “Skull and Bones” fraternity.

Like the monarchies of old, these are the ruling families of the United States.

There’s just a thin veneer of “democracy” painted on, to give the sheeple the illusion that they have no ruling dynasty.

On the Dem side, you find the same thing, ruling families, and little minions that were proteges, also coming out of the elite colleges, with those most highly regarded minions typically being Rhodes scholars.

The financial elites can’t allow outsiders into those top government jobs. If necessary, as in all nations, the elites remove those who represent enough of a problem for them.

Those inside dynasty families are reliable; the only other reliable minions are those who are devoid of any morals and completely corrupt. The elites need this reliability. All the candidates for top advisor jobs will be chosen by the elites, so all a President has to do is pick from the multiple choice options their advisors give them.

I’d vote for Romney again before I’d vote for Bush or anyone who looks like Bush. These bast*rds stole the election. You had the IRS and who knows who else involved in surpressing the vote.

We don’t need some political hack. I like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz but these guys are Senators. They make the worst presidents. Give me a business man/Governor to turn this mess around.

Not Jeb Bush. For some reason he reminds me of Donny Osmond.

You completely missed my point. The point was to show the dumbasses what it takes to win a war in the hope they decide they do NOT want war.

The armed forces are not police. They are not meals on wheels. They kill people and destroy things.

Chickenhawks like LBJ and GWBush think it is OK to start "limited" wars, or "police actions" that cost American lives and treasure but end in defeat. Viet Nam. Afghanistan. Iraq. All resounding defeats. Do you support that?

wow, a personal attack from someone on the premiere conservative website, all because I’m asking the name of the perfect conservative candidate.....

The fact remains, all of you attacking Bush or any other republican out there are playing the ‘victim’. I don’t blame you, Obama and his gang of liberals have convinced you that you MUST be the victim of something, so here you are, the ‘victim’ of the eeeeeeeeeeeevil “GOPe”.

Mitt Romney would have made a marvelous president. But, it’s better that we have Obama, right? It’s also better that Hillary wins the White House in 2016 rather than a someone who’s not pure for you. Right? I suspect that I will see a ton of name calling from the most frequent posters here, “x” isn’t conservative enough!!!!! Don’t vote for “X”. I will continue to point out that a presidential election is between two candidates. Not between two candidates and one that doesn’t exist.

So, if you would rather do the name calling bit here on the premiere conservative website instead of working for that perfect candidate out there, by all means, go for it.

Stop with the "perfect" talking point. There is a simple test. Does the candidate have a track record of moving the political football toward the conservative goalpost? Sarah Palin has a great record of this. Newt Gingrich too.

As for Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, they talk the talk. They appear to be the type capable of moving the ball the right way. Rubio appeared to be of this type too. None of the three has a track record yet.

McCain has a record of fighting to move the ball to the progressive goalpost. Ditto both Bushes, Romney , Dole and all the other losers. There are none so blind as those that refuse to see.

I hate to break it to you, but here on the premiere conservative website, the notion of Sarah Palin being a good conservative is OFTEN met with resistance. Newt as well. A taken out of context quote will quickly appear as “proof” of their liberalism.

I’m not going to stop anything. I think this country is a hot mess. Obama convinced the mush brained yewt that he was going to rob from the rich to give to them and meanwhile, the republicans decided that it was cool to be the victim and the circular firing squad commenced.

You have the primaries to battle for your candidate, whoever that is. AFTER the primaries and the nominee is selected if I hear this nonsense that “I’m not going to vote for X because X isn’t conservative enough”......well, it’s just ridiculous.

In 2012, you had two choices. Obama or Romney. If you “stayed home” because Romney wasn’t your perfect candidate, you supported Obama. Period. In 2016, you will have two choices, most likely Hillary and the republican. There will be no viable third party candidate, no matter how dreamy that sounds. So, buckle up and vote. Staying home to be the “victim” is the lazy way out.

I am a libertarian. The republicans do not own my vote. They may earn it, or not. In 2012 I had an excellent choice, Gary Johnson. His track record as a two term governor, vetoing 746 bills, is just what the country needed.

Do not tell me I supported Obama. Them's fightin words. I supported Gary Johnson. If my choice offends you that is too bad for you.

The whole political game is fixed, and both parties represent little difference on the national level. No Republican since Warren Harding ever significantly decreased the burden of government on peoples’ lives. Even Reagan did not significantly shrink the size of the Federal leviathan, although in his defense, his desire to defeat international Communism required some compromises with the Democrats who controlled the House for both terms of his presidency. Unless the Republicans nominate someone who will make a difference, say like Ted Cruz, a GOP Presidential win in 2016 will only slow down, and not stop, the slide toward statism and socialism.

The precedent was set by Eisenhower, who decided not to pursue repeal of the Roosevelt and Truman social legislation. His vice president, Nixon, did likewise with respect to Johnson's Great Society legislation when it was his turn to be President. Ditto for the Bushes and even Reagan. There is no reason to believe that a Jeb Bush or a Ryan would be any different from their GOP predecessors should either one of them, or any other RINOs, defeat the Democrat nominee.
