Some more good news for Donald Trump.
Even most Republicans agree that the reign of “read my lips” George H. W. Bush was so mediocre that he enabled the rise of Bill Clinton and, ultimately, Hillary Clinton. Thanks for that!
Then along came Dubya, the welfare/warfare RINO disaster that mired America in debt and winless wars paving the way for the ascension of Barack Obama.
All of which led to the $100 million failure, Jeb Bush, who couldn’t spend enough money to convince voters to take another chance on America’s first family of failure.
Lest we forget his grandpa Prescott Bush who helped Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime rise to power in Germany.
The Bushes have been an unmitigated disaster for our country. There is no doubt that Donald Trump is on the right side of that issue!
And now it looks like the Bush family won’t be attending this year’s Republican National Convention.
Now, as one of the most crucial elections of our time comes close, we don’t have to worry about the Bush legacy getting in the way.
Bush Sr. has said he won’t attend the summer convention. “At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics,” spokesman Jim McGrath told The Texas Tribune Wednesday. “He came out of retirement to do a few things for Jeb, but those were the exceptions that proved the rule.”
Fair enough. No one wants a 91 year old man to be carted all over the place for the sake of politics. Let the man rest in his twilight years. But what about W?
Like his dad, the 43rd president “does not plan to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign,” including not attending the national convention, said his personal aide, Freddy Ford, according to the Tribune.
Even JEB? is running for the hills, breaking his word and refusing to support the nominee he pledged to support, as reported by NPR…
“Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”
Moments later, Jeb imploded under the weight of his own hypocrisy.
In all honesty, I’m relieved.
Donald Trump does not need the endorsement of the Bush’s. It would have been very unlikely that the family would have given one, considering Trump has always been a critic. He was against the Iraq war in 2003 and has been open about his opinion of W’s time in office. A lack of a Bush presence in the coming convention can only be a good thing for the presumptive GOP nominee.
I think it’s fair to say we’ve moved passed the “Bush” era of American politics. Jeb sunk rapidly. George W and George Sr. haven’t played an open role in politics for years.
Let these Americans recede back into private life as we move on. Our best hope to restore our country is for a conservative win this November. The Bush’s refusal to get involved will certainly help.
