Another Bush destined to be President?

26 posts in this topic

Bush Senior did a great job with Gulf War I and the Russians. I can't stand the way people second guessed him about Hussein, as his policies were right.

The way he called for Saddams overthrow by the Iraqi people, then refused to follow through with support leading to mass murder, was a tick short of evil IMHO.

I think it's funny how no matter what Bubba achieved, it was either due to Reagan or to Bush Sr... according to conservatives

I give credit to the success of the economy under Clinton to two things....

1. The Republican Congress that came in and slashed pork spending

2. Clinton himself, for adapting and realizing he had to get in to fit in

Bush senior was an excellent president. Best in the last 50 years. I think Jeb should have been president instead of George W, he is infinitely better qualified.

But no, Jeb will never be president.

I cant think of any President in the last 50 years with the exception of Carter who has performed as poorly as the Bush clan. Both exited with the economy in shambles, both with record deficits, both with the country unsure of its direction. This job is about leadership, vision and direction. Its not an administrative position like a mature corporation. Father and son both missed the mark, but George W, he is a classic example of Peters Principal existing in politics.

I wondered in an old thread about Jeb and much moreso Jeb's son.

I think W ruined any chance for Jeb, but I wonder if his boy, given enough time and the inevitable pendulum swing back towards the ® might not give him a chance.

Don't underestimate his good looks and heritage.

The whole mixed heritage thing seems to work well! The question is simply if W poisoned the Bush well too much.

While I agree with you, you must realize that power and money stays in families.

Roosevelts, Kennedys, Clintons (watch out for Chelsea), Bush, to name a few from just modern times.

Name recognition is a big deal, as is "knowing how to play the game".

Then I can't wait to vote for Monique and Unique Obama.
