Please – anything but this.

The very idea of continuing America’s most corrupt and dysfunctional dynasty makes me physically ill. Whether it’s 2008 or 2012 or whenever, the last thing America needs is another Bush in the White House. Those who forget the past are forced to relive it; do American’s really want to relive the misery and despair of the past 5.5 years?

So, you know how George Bush is supposed to be a recovered alcoholic? Or, more accurately, a “dry drunk”?

Jeb Bush is a big, damn drunk. I have heard this from several reliable sources.

No more Bushes. No effin’ way. Haven’t we already suffered enough?!

I don’t think Jeb has a chance in hell. This is only personal speculation. The GOP will be wanting someone to run who doesn’t bare so much baggage. And the Bush name is a lot of baggage to bare at the moment.

McCain will kick Jeb’s ass.

Jeb talk is unrealistic theorizing. Republican candidates in 2008 will be uprooting bushes around their homes to avoid any chance they’ll be associated with the W albatross.

America’s most corrupt and dysfunctional dynasty

That would be the Kennedys.

Let me know when a Bush drowns a mistress, consorts with mobsters, plows his car into the Capitol Bldg on the way to a 3:00AM vote, is expelled for cheating, commits a rape, shags an underage girl, murders a neighbor or makes a ‘waitress sandwich.

And let’s not forget the Clinton’s, the Landrieus of Louisiana or the Fords of Tennessee. Democrats all.

As for Jeb Bush being a drunk — notwithstanding the lack of any evidence whatsoever in the public record — one would think that a supporter of the party that is keeping both Teddy and Patrick Kennedy in office might not want to go down that particular road.

The Kennedys, to the best of my knowledge, never bankrupted the country, drowned in corruption, hired incompetent yes men and made us the world’s laughingstock.

Richard, great comeback. Democrats have personal problems, but they’re so much better than the alternative, every time.
