That's when I abandoned the Repub party too. It was a combination of Reagan tripling the National Debt and the innate unlikeability of Bush Sr. that drove me out of the party.
Perception is a funny thing. I found George Bush Sr very likable. He is a good man. Gosh, how ever have the Republicans survived without you?
You repubs amaze me with your abitlity to ignore reality and the truth about your Bush's. What does it mean when Bush #1 has been proven to be the author and overseer of the October Surprise to insure that Reagan got elected, do you know what that is? Again, Bush oversaw paying the Iranians to hold the hostages past the election. Now just in case your wondering, by god that does not make him "A GOOD MAN", stop ignoring reality and READ !!
Do a Google search on Robert Perry's research on the OCTOBER SURPRISE, there's plenty of proof that this "BAD MAN" Bush pulled it off to assist Reagans election chances. God you people are unbelievable in your blind partisanship, is there some allergic reaction to the facts?
I might add that the truth came out through a Democratic congressman named Lee Hamilton who assisted Clinton in discovering it. then the Dem favorite Clinton Hid the facts saying "America doesn't need this right now" (a paraphrase) Had Clinton let the truth come out we probably could have avoided the Bush family scourge of Bush number 2.
Let us know what you find from the facts that are available.
Again, Google Robert Perry, investigative reporter on the October Surprise,
Google Lee Hamiltons reasearch on the October Surprise and how Clinton and he decided to cover it up.
