When the Tea Parties appeared on the scene in 2009, some argued that they seemed to be the second coming of the supporters of H. Ross Perot --- right-leaning but wary of the traditional leadership of the Republican party, deeply concerned about budgetary and debt issues, and generally disgusted with Washington and incumbents.

Bush the elder.
He gave us Bill Clinton twice. After that, he was done.
Ross Perot was not worthy of the Presidency but he was a populist. Pat Buchanan was a populist as well and he challenged the former head spook in the Ford-Rockefeller administration.
Reagan was a populist. Buchanan was a populist. Perot was a populist.
Both guys named George Bush were elitists. Bob Dole was an elitist who replaced Nelson Rockefeller on Ford's election bid. Juan McCain was an elitist who joined hands with every piece of globalist elitist trash in the United States Senate in order to pass Comprhehensive Immigration Reform.
The time has come for Reagan Conservatives to stop pretending that the Bushes, Dole, McCain and Romney are nothing more than elitists who have sold their souls to globalism.
This is a repost about how Bush lost the 1996 election all by himself and Perot was but a footnote.
Blaming Perot for Clinton's victory is denial by Republican voters who are bamboozled into thinking that the first elitist snob named Bush was a conservative which he was not but a true blue Rockefeller Republican elitist.
The first George Bush was an idiot who was trailing a nowhere man like Michael Dukakis. He would have lost the presidency if not for a true conservative like Lee Atwater who transfused some Reagan conservative blood into his New England elitist blue blood campaign.
The former head spook in the Ford-Rockefeller administration was convinced to make the no new taxes pledge the centerpiece of his campaign. He became defined by his favorite slogan taken from a Dirty Harry movie "Read my lips, no new taxes."
Defining your entire campaign with such a pledge is problematic if you do not have the political gonads of a Ronald Reagan to keep trust with the voters who expected you to keep your word.
It is problematic because if you define the first campaign with the pledge made, the next campaign will be defined by the pledge broken.
Bush was just another conscending elitist snob politician who will say or promise anything to get elected.
He was much like Barry who is the same condescending elitist snob who made a lot of promises that he never kept or intended to keep.
To blame Perot for Clinton's victory and Bush's defeat simply discounted Bush's betrayal of those who voted for him but more importantly Bush's betrayal of Reagan conservatism upon which the tax issue was a keystone. There is no defense for the elitist snob George Bush particularly by those who claim to be Reagan conservatism, a conservatism that this CFR globalist elitist betrayed on more than one occasion.
You sounds like the people who can explain why the Japanese didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor.
