They’re all totally irrelevant to today’s issues.
Who cares what they think or who they voted for.
However, to vote for Hitlerly is practically treason...lol.

K George, you win the nice guy award.

WHO CARES?

Trump is getting results you didn’t have the courage to stand for.

“Read my lips!”
“No New Taxes.”

Loser!

We all supported the Bushes because they were “republican” We have learned a lot about rino’s, the uniparty and the globalist agenda since then. Not one word uttered about Bill and Hillary crime syndicate and Obama’s anti American agenda.
George W Bush and Jeb at irrelevant.
