I think you were in good company in the elections in question FRiend, in 1988 we had a choice between Poppy Bush who we all hoped would continue the Reagan policies, and that douche bag Michael Dukakis running around in his M1 tank.
Come ‘92, it was clear that GHWB was failing the test for conservatives and Reaganites across the board, and again the choices were less than optimal, it was Ross Perot and his crazy relative in the attic (was it an uncle or an aunt?) or that soon to be unmasked sexual predator Bill “ah feel your pain” Clinton and his equally predatory spouse.
In 2000, what the Hell kind of choice was there? Continue the policies of Clinton/Gore by electing GORE?!? Or going with GWB with his absurd ‘compassionate conservatism’? By 2004, who in their right mind would have picked John Effin’ Kerry to screw things up even MORE?
2008 and 2012? McInsane and McRomney both threw the election to that Kenyan sack o’ sh*t, and we’ve been paying for that ever since.
It’s going to be different, OR our Republic is done for.
