    yeah, too bad his alcoholic, idiot, frat boy son couldn't stand up to them

    now, at 91, George Sr throws all the assholes under the bus (after some people made big $$$ in fake wars)

    Jeb would get "rolled" even harder than little George did

    Stand up to them? Hell, he gave them their jobs. Bush and the whole Republican "You're with us or against us" bullshit tanked the economy, killed more Americans than Osama and made the Middle East an even worse mess.

    ^^^

    actually I think George Sr ran a lot more than we think and shoved a lot down his son's throat (including Cheney and Rumsfeld). Bush Sr knew Rumsfeld from the Nixon days for cripe sake

    hell, his idiot son couldn't even run the Texas Rangers

    George Sr is one shrewd a-hole (ran the CIA, 1st Ambassador to Communist China, father was a US Senator, VP, Prez) - how more connected can you possibly get?
