The news in the New York Times today is, “Jeb Bush Outlines His Strategy, Should He Run” 4/7/14.
It was President Bush the First, that pardoned President Reagan and all the witnesses involved in the illegal Iran/Contra Scandal of America’s support for the Right Wing Nicaraguan dictatorship.
By pardoning the witnesses, Bush the First allowed the already convicted Col. North of the Iran/Contra Scandal to be freed on an Appeal because there were no viable witnesses to his crime of lying to Congress.
Today, Col. North is and remains an extremist right wing supporter of Bush Two and his PNAC Wars of Aggression, as a Fox TV News authority and weekly newspaper columnist.
And, of course, Bush the First was responsible for the unpopular “Desert Storm” and twisting the arm of King Saud for approval for allowing America to build a military base in Saudi Arabian Muslim Holy Land against the wishes of the Saudi People and Muslim clergy; this American military base was bin Laden’s incentive for perpetrating the heinous 911 terrorist attack on America; prior to that time, America had supported bin Laden against the Russian invasion of Afghanistan.
To add insult to injury to injury, Bush the First appointed extremist Republican Justices to the Supreme Court who “selected” Bush the Second to be President of the United States in 2000 despite, a plurality American voters voting for Bush’s opponent, Gore.
Of course the 2000 election was decided by “unusual” voting in Florida, whose governor was the potential 2016 President Bush the Third (Jeb).
Hopefully, American voters will always remember the chaotic Reign of Bush the Second and his PNAC wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq, his violations of International Law including the torture of Prisoners of War, Gitmo, and Bush the Second’s American Religious “Crusade” resulting in the era of fanatic terrorism on both sides that America suffers from today.
For years to come, America will have a constant reminder of the Bush The Second Regime by caring for the many casualties of the Bush Afghanistan and Iraq Wars of aggression; don’t ever forget!
And, voters should never forget Bush the Second’s extremist Republican Supreme Court appointees that gave us the anti-democratic “Citizens United Decision” that allows plutocratic corporate interests to buy elections, buy government, and virtually eliminate the “Peoples power of the ballot”.
This of course, is all a matter of history; history cannot be changed and, we should never deny history.
Lest we ever forget, American democracy and the working Middle Class majority cannot afford “Bush the Third”. Democracy cannot compete with the wealth and US Supreme Court backing the extremist anti-democratic Republican Party and the Bush Dynasty.
The only way democracy can ever survive in America, will be for every single member of the working Middle Class majority voters in America, vote in spite of Republican voter suppression laws and huge campaign contributions by the wealthy, and vote against these Republican plutocratic oligarchs.
